Kodi Installation Issues

So I have been trying to get Kodi to work correctly on my Zorin system.

I install it and add my repository and then my build but then the build does not seem to function. I have tried multiple repositories and multiple builds with multiple installations of Kodi but so far I have not been successful.

I have purged all and also removed the kodi addon dir under my home.

If anyone has had success with Kodi and could provide some guidance I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

kodi can be installed via apt
this is the package that available

kodi/focal 2:18.6+dfsg1-2ubuntu1 amd64
Open Source Home Theatre (executable binaries)

in terminal

sudo apt install kodi
