    There is no ‘uninstall’ option on my Krypton 17.3 (Android/Fire TV). I have ‘disable’ only. Using Confluence and Amber.

    Never mind… w/ Amber the option was there but off the screen. I needed to scroll right to find it. Durr….

    I try to delete a visualiser add-on because it seems to crash the system. The uninstall-button is greyed out and there’s no mention of other addons using the visualiser. Nothing is running either…
    Any idea’s?

  5. Taxicletter

    I had “use visualization” enabled and selected the bad addon. So although Kodi didn’t tell me, it WAS running somehow in the background…
