Installation issues / flickr / screen saver pics
« on: October 19, 2007, 04:41:37 pm »
I've seen some posts regarding the flickr prog, running in the background, which downloads pictures from flickr and shows it as screensaver.
Is there actually a solution to point not to the flickr folder, but to own pictures, which can be used as screensaver or background picture?


Installation issues / switch to menu when playing DVD [solved]
« on: October 19, 2007, 10:42:41 am »
Hi fiends,
I have an issue regarding the menu:
when I insert a DVD, the player starts playing the movie. But I can not stop it nor switch back to the menu.
I can remember, this was possible by pressing the right mouse button (on a standard mouse).
But now, I only can eject the dvd, then I can see my menu.

thanx for feedback.

Installation issues / [SOLVED] NVIDIA installation failed
« on: September 22, 2007, 10:53:07 am »
Hi friends,

I tried to install linuxmce on my laptop, which has a nvidia card. But I´m not able to install this card correct.
-During the linuxmce-installation-wizard, when I select, that the nvidia driver should be installed, after the reboot, I can not login again, because the display stays grey.
-I also tried to install the nvidia-linux-driver, after the linuxmce installation, but in this case, the nvidia-linux-driver installation fails...
-I also tried some steps, what I´ve found on the net:
remove of:

vi /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common → DISABLED_MODULES=„nv“
apt-get install nvidia-glx-new nvidia-kernel-common
nvidia-glx-config enable

But again, the installation fails.

Is there a way to install linuxmce with NVIDIA, to enable UI2?

many thanx

Installation issues / Installation problem with beta2

Hi friends,
I tried to install mce several times but finally couldn´t finish it:
-) if I choose the download option (not the cache-iso file option) then the installation stops with error-message: orbiter-package broken (or something like that). The mce icon was created on the desktop but I guess, there is something wrong with the address-reloving. So I guess, during installation and where the script tries do download the packages, some packages couldn´t be downloaded.
so I tried with the cache-iso file:
-) with the cache-iso file option, the installation ends with the error-message, that mysql couldn´t be installed.

I also tried it with /without update of kubuntu before I start the installation process.

Could you please post a small step-by-step installation remark?

regards & thanx
