Install kodi via
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kodi
(these from http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Install_Kodi_for_Linux)

Remote desktop stuff

I use x2go. To install the client
sudo apt-get install x2goclient
and to install the server
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:x2go/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install x2goserver x2goserver-xsession
and in the client program, use the id_rsa file for a key (presuming you have added the id_rsa.pub to the authorized file -- see SshKeyStuff)

Python stuff

Pyquery is handy
sudo pip3 install pyquery

Ipython is useful, for python 3:

sudo apt-get install python{,3}-{scipy,numpy,pip,pil,matplotlib,descartes} ipython{,3}{,-{notebook,qtconsole}} 
(and similar for python2)

Tex stuff

sudo apt-get install texlive{,-{xetex,luatex}}

Wine

apt-get install wine
