Title: Multiple Issues Solved
Post by: Armor Gnome on February 09, 2010, 11:27:39 am
I am happy to report I now have my core up and running beta2.  Thanks to tkmedia for the assistance and for putting up with my "what's an irc? is it apt-get or wget?" type questions.  Here is a run down of what I needed to do in order to correct some problems I had with DVD install.

Downloaded Kubuntu 8.10 i386
burned it to a cd
installed it on SCSI3 ( sda)
I used 'guided - use entire disk
got to desktop and opened a terminal
 
sudo su
apt-get update
wget -c http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/new-installer-beta2.5.tar.gz
tar xvf new-installer-beta2.5.tar.gz
cd new-installer
./pre-install-from-repo.sh
./mce-install.sh
./post-install.sh
reboot

Ran through AVWizard and I was up and running

First problem:
inserting a DVD gave me an error message about missing DVDCSS library

alt+ctrl+f2
opened a terminal

sudo apt-get dvdcss2

reboot

Solved

Next issue:

Trying to get to kde desktop gave me a "could not start ksmserver" error

I found a link to work around this and get what sounds like a stripped down desktop environment but I was unable to get it working before I had to head to bed.  I will post my command and success when I get home tonight.

Reply #16 is what you want to do. FYI "systemsetting" is a typo; should be "systemsettings".

Thanks a million for the help here!  One thing that I found for the dvdcss was that I had to use "sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2"
