The instructions don't work. First, I installed the latest version of ubutu which was rather painless. It seemed to install nicely, but apparently it didn't. I then downloaded the LinuxMCE Installer program and ran it. It made me type my password every 10 seconds to run that program.
Finally, the installer program downloaded yet another installer onto my desktop called Install LinuxMCE. Then, I inserted the Linux MCE CD and double clicked on that icon. Nothing. If I click on it in rapid succession, you can see a brief flash at the bottom of the screen Starting Administrative App, but nothing ever runs and the CD light stays off.
So, how do I install Linux MCE? Has anyone actually done it? It seems a lot more complicated than Windows. Also, is there a way to make it stop asking for a username and password every time I reboot or try to do anything? That is extremely annoying.
