I forgot to mention that after the installation of LinuxMCE I get the error "Failed to initialize HAL" when logging on Ubuntu. Which is probably the source of all my problems, but I don't get the error anymore. I'll try to get as specific as I can get. When I start up LinuxMCE I get the Welcome screen that tells me "This is a new Orbiter...". The text looks ok on my TV, but not so good on my computer screen. When I try to move the mouse it blinks on and off, but I can see it just good enough to get to the main menu. Then in the main menu I can hardly read the text, the screen is black, and when I move the mouse it blinks and so does the screen. When I use Ubuntu everything works fine. It's impossible to configure it unless I do it through a web browser. At that, I don't really see anything to configure that would fix the problem. I only looked at it for a little while though. Any thoughts on what I'm missing?
