I believe launch manager is now a linux service that has no gui so you wont see it on the kde desktop.

Thanks, I get it now.  I was looking for the old GUI.

rocketlynx,

thanks for your positive feedback. That is very much appreciated!

I don't know if I needed to change the MD from AMD64 to i386 but I have heard that it may be easier getting the Antec (iMon) IR/VFW to work easier on an i386 diskless MD image. 
you don't need to do that anymore. All MDs are running i386 atm, no matter what the setting.

1. Does the Launch Manager exist and is just not staring automatically?
a.  If so, where is it and how do you start it?
The Launch Manager is a CLI application at the moment. There were to many dependencies in the old launch manager, that jondecker took on the task to recreate it.

b.  After updating and waiting  for over 24 hrs., there still is no Add Software items to install such as the Codecs for DVD and such.
There is currently no additional software available.

Since I couldn't play or rip DVD movies, on the core's Konsole I did a "sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2" and all was well after that.  I could then play and rip DVDs on the core.  On the running MD, I invoked the konsole and executed the same command and then I could play the ripped dvds from the core.
That is the correct way at the moment.

After a successful install of 810 alpha2.19 I've hit a glitch.
 
I'm installing an iOne Libra-Q11 IR remote and receiver made by Itron on a diskless MD.  It's supposedly supported in lirc_mceusb2. No driver is linked!

And here's the results after modifying Template #1862, as per the Wiki, and selecting mceusb2 as the IR Receiver for the MD:

On the MD, the software shows to be being installed in the upper left corner of the orbiter and after a router reload, the MD shows that the device #83/mceusb2 fails to start up.

The Bluetooth Dongle in the adjacent usb port starts correctly and a usb mouse also works.  I've double checked the template #1862 as follows:

NOTE: I tried this:
root@moon32:~# depmod -ae

(Completed OK)

And then a modprobe of lirc_mceusb2:

root@moon32:~# modprobe lirc_mceusb2

root@moon32:~#

Looking at the lirc_mceusb2.c source code, the three functions in question, lirc_get_pdata, lirc_unregister_plugin and lirc_register_plugin of which modprobe can't process, probably needs to be declared somewhere else and is missing.

The result is there's no driver being linked to the usb device (see above) but I'm not sure if this is something I've missed or an LinuxMCE 810 Alpha2 problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Charles

After a successful install of 810 alpha2.19 I've hit a glitch.

Would you mind opening up a new thread with 0810 lirc_mce problem, otherwise it might get lost in this big thread. (and post the link to your new thead in here for future cross reference)
