Thanks for the manual.

And also thanks for the hint with adding/removing buttons with the Webadmin page. Redefining there names and adding the buttons i want to the wright base buttons would be a easy "workaround" to recreating the whole gui with HA Designer.

thx guys.

u are running the xserver with the x86 driver. (nv). This driver has some problems with the glx/opengl.
Thats why lmce installes the nvidia-glx package of the kubuntu sources.
sh :/ should work but it seams that your xorg.conf isn't updated correctly.

Backup it
  1) cd /etc/X11
   2) cp xorg.conf xorg.conf_backup
and than change
         Driver      "nv"
         Driver      "nvidia" 

If you still get problems with the driver try to find a howto in a kubuntu/ubuntu forum.
Would give you a link but i only know the german ubuntu side ( maybe it helps anyway :

y i tried with mono. i opens a screen and after 2sec recognizes that no odbc classes are present.
In the worst case i will run it in vmware. shoudl be no problem.

a answer to my question about manual/How-To/Tutorial would be more importend.
The wiki article worried me a little bit. But i think changing the existing gui should be done easy
no matter how bad Designer is

because of the wiki.

Designer is very poorly written, and we do not recommend any developer puts much effort into this code.
It needs be completely re-written from scratch

maybe the designer article makes people afraid of using it.

I just thought that changing the menu (delete some points, move a sub menu to top) could be made without using designer because the articles says u have to rewrite the whole code anyway.
So i got to search for a M$ System.

is there any manual / tutorial for it? Rewritting the whole code without help would be a lot of work.

i have build a lmce box and now want to change the ui.
I read in the wiki that this can be done using "designer". But designer is a win prog, has problems with the db.....

I just want to remove the Buttons for "ligthning", "alarm" and "phone" and show the
subelements of the "Media" - menu instead.

can i do this without messing around with desinger and rewriting all the code it generates?

best regards

i also tried to change the ui with the admin page.
mine is also not selectable. maybe u have to generate the ui2 images with the av wizard before u ca
select it in at the admin page.

thx for the hint with envy. will try this at the weekend

Installation issues / Re: [SOLVED] Black screen after reboot

i had the same problem with my geforce 7050pv.
The problem is the card doesn't work with the ncvidia-glx driver which is installed from the
kubuntu sources. lmce checks if they are installed and installs them if they aren't.

i solved this problem by reinstalling the nvidia driver (sh aftere lmc was installed.

Then i run into the problem that modprobe nvidia didn't work. So i messed around with the
modprobe config files. The probmlem was in /etc/modprobe.d/lrm-video.
There is a entry like "install nvidia: lrm-video nvidia".
so i tried lrm-video nvidia and nothing worked. seems like lrm-video only works with the nvidia driver
of the kubuntu sources. I commented this line by adding a # at the beginning and the nvidia was loaded
and the xserver started without probs.

but u are right the flickering is really annoying. bad that i didn't realised that "sudo telinit 1" will stop it.
but killall xinit also did fine :)

sry to just start a new thread.
i think the av-wizard will do what i want.

But there is still the problem with the nvidia driver. Anyone knows how to fix it?
Would be nice to get it running with nvidia-glx, so lmce would automaticly include the updates.

anyone has experiences with the 7050pv or the abit board? i choosed it because
i read in the wiki that it is running just out of the box. so there must be people who got it
running wiithout probs.

i am trying to build a lmce box.
i ordered some hardware and now try to run it as a hybrid because i have only one room at my flat :)

Abit An-2MHD (GEforce 7050pv , nforce 630a Chipset)
2x 1GB DDR2 800 RAm
CPU Athlon64 LE1620 2,4GHz AM2
750gig Samsung hdd :)

I ran into some Problems when i tried to install with the DVD Installer.
So decided to install Kubuntu 7.04 first and then add LMCE to the installation.

It took my a lot of time to get the geforce 7050 supported. (nvidia-glx /glx-new didn't work) so i
installed the driver with the .sh file from nvidia and everything worked fine. (just 5 hours work to
realize that the kubuntu modprobe.d/lrm-video blacklists the nvidia driver...)

Anyway.... finally i got it working and installed lmce.
Then the bad surprise. LMCE installes the nvidia driver out of the sources. which don't work with the abit board.
So i edited the xorg.conf to the vesa driver and the xserver started without problems. (1)

Because i was sure UI2 would not work with the vesa driver i choosed "basic UI" at the wizard that came up.
Sure to be able to change this after i installed the nvidia driver again.
And then yet another bad surprise. I can't change the UI with the help of the admin web site.
I switched to the orbiter side at the admin side and searched for the drop-down menu but unfortunatly it seems,
that it is disabled.

Is there a way to restart the wizard which is shown at the first boot? I tried to set the "frist_boot" entry in the pluto.conf
to true but that didn't change anything @ the next boot.

(1) LMCE switches between vc/1 and vc/8 (maybe its 7 don't remember) all the time when the xserver can not be started.
Thats really annoying! Maybe there is a better way to show that the xserver can not be started.

LMCE runs fine. But only with the UI1 and i really want to use UI2.

thx for your help and have a nice day :)

PS. sry for my english
