Users / Re: unable to update please take a look at source.list
« on: July 18, 2014, 09:44:47 pm »
replace anything that has "mirror://" with ""

Replace your sources.list with the following:

Code: [Select]
    deb file:/usr/pluto/deb-cache ./

    deb lucid main
    deb stable main
    deb lucid partner
    deb lucid main restricted universe multiverse
    deb lucid-updates main restricted universe multiverse
    deb lucid-security main restricted universe multiverse   


Installation issues / Re: LMCE 10.04 or 12.04 or 14.04?
« on: July 18, 2014, 09:41:21 pm »
14.04 is a non-starter at the moment, please do not try to install it unless your intent is purely educational.  There is no device detection mechanism in 1404 right now.  A new detection method may need to be created or the old hald de-bugged for trusty.

Talk to Alblasco in irc.


Developers / Re: squeezelite as an alternative to squeezeslave
« on: July 18, 2014, 09:36:51 pm »
There is no technical reason why they could not co-exist.  A discussion was had in irc that essentially decided there is no reason to support multiple squeezeslave binaries.  One should be chosen to maintain.  I had asked for some specifics regarding the changeover.  We can build a package for squeezelite on precise, that's not really an issue (imho).

If the squeezeslave binaries are no longer under development then we should migrate to squeezelite.

I wanted to swap out my squeezeslave instances with squeezelite as the former is no longer actively developed and also cannot handle Spotify streams.
 - I found a git clone on the squeezelite site with additions to support building a deb package. Turns out Uplink did this work. How can this be used by Linuxmce?

There are two ways, we can either build the package in house, or host it in a PPA.  I would prefer to build it in house, for precise, and use an ubuntu repo for trusty (if that exists).  We would create the package definition and point it to the lmce repo for precise and the ubuntu repos for trusty, easy enough to do.  Can you point me to the package (URL)?

- To build this deb other packages are required - again not on precise, but available via another PPA, Can these be added with the package manager?

Likely, but we would do that manually for our builders if posde is okay with that, as well as add the proper dependencies and PPA repos to the database for proper installation of package dependencies.  Again, fairly easy.

- Can DTs be copied? or one based on another?

DTs cannot easily be copied.  I would create a new DT with the existing DT open in another window and do it that way.  This is how I regurlarily create new DTs that are similar to others.

I hope that helps, I am happy to do some of the integration work but I don't have a lot of time to test right now.  I'm around next week then off on vacation for 2 weeks.  Let me know if you have other questions!

Has this been filed in trac yet?

Hey, sorry for the delay, I'm really busy.  I *though* gsd was built ok for the rpi.  If you could detail some of your specifics in a trac ticket with me as the owner I will have a look.   Thanks for testing btw!  I really appreciate it.

Wow.  I've been really busy.  There are certainly some known issues with lmce and the rpi.  The integrated OMX_Player is not functioning at the moment.  I know what I need to do to get it working it's just finding the time to make it happen.  Mounts are working to NAS devices but there seems to be a bug with accessing shares located on HDs that are on the Core or other MDs.  Use a NAS if you want access to media.  Please file extremely detailed bugs in trac with me as the owner for any bugs that you do not see in trac already.  Thank you so much for testing!  I will try to get some more work done here very soon.

Good day to all.  Im back to my linuxmce addiction after being forced to go on hiatus due to several reasons. Is the wiki for the raspberry pi up to date and valid? Also, are there any know issues with the raspberry pi's as md's? Thanks guys

Hey newguy2.  Umm.  Good question.  Things have changed slightly since the wiki was last updated, I think.  RPi is still not supported for use as an MD but I hope to get media playback functional again asap.  MD creation should be working very well.  I have used usb-uirt successfully (although I have not tested recently).  If you ping me on #linuxmce on freenode irc I can respond faster usually. 

We welcome any and all testing and I try to respond to testers as quickly as possible.

:)  Welcome back and thanks for your interest!


;)  Thanks for testing.

an nvidia graphics card will not work with vaapi acceleration. Use vdpau.

Actually vaapi has a vdpau backend.  vaapi works on the nvidia ion cards I have.  That being said, the pure vdpau implementation appears to be better, smoother, than through vaapi.


Installation issues / Re: AVWizard Failed to setup X.
« on: May 20, 2014, 09:42:05 pm »
The nouveau driver should not be loading, it should only load if your pci id is not recognized.  What is the output of `lspci -nn | grep VGA`?  And can you pastebin the output of `apt-cache policy nvidia-current`.



WOW!  Thanks for this!  We have just produced our first snapshots for 1404 and we are expecting the potential for lots of issues!

1) I did not select "Install this third party software".


2) Under computer name "Geforce-8000-series-invalid-entry-length-0-DMI-table-is-broken-Stop" message received.
   Same on 12.04 install.

Weird, I've never seen that.  This should not interfere with anything during the installation.

3) Liked the return of "please remove installation media and close the tray (if any) then press ENTER:".

heh.  nothing has changed here, 1204/1404.  Not sure why it is not displaying on 1204.  The dvd boot menu has been altered so that if the dvd is left in the drive it will boot the hard drive by default.

5) System booted temporarily into kubuntu desktop - then restarted with Grub memu.  Selected *Ubuntu.

I saw that the first time I tried 1404 from net install, but not from the dvd, interesting.

6. Received network messages (including 60 seconds and booting without full network).

Did you have to swap network cards at some point?  This could be caused by the nics getting reordered.

7) Got AVWizard after selecting initial screen size got lots of error message...
systemd-udevd[XXXXX]:failed to execute 'lib/udev/socket:0/org/freedesktop/hal/udev_event' 'socket:0/org/freedesktop/hal/udev_event': No such file or directory

hald is not running right now, it loads and exits without error.  It should stay running.  Havn't had a chance to check it yet.

11) After 2 hours I'm still waiting for Sarah to say "hello".

I have not seen AV playback working on 1404 as of yet.

Power up the system.  Got the main menu.
Opened a terminal and did apt update/upgrade.
Patched around the NO_PUBKEY message for

Not necesary to patch around this, it is an informational message only, we don't require the keys for installations to work/function.

Did an apt-get autoremove to get rid of some non required packages.  Saw some MythTV issues and rebooted.
Did update/upgrade.  Update ran clean.  Upgrade reported 2 not fully installed or removed.

When I did the upgrade this was the overall error message.


chown: cannot access ‘/var/www/mythweb/data’: No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing package pluto-mythtv-plugin (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:

There's the actual error.  The chown, something with mythweb.  I wonder if it installed or not.  Can you pastebin the output of `dpkg -l | grep myth`

The system xorg.conf is defaulted to the "nouveau" driver.

:(  Hmm.  Can you pastebin the output of `apt-cache policy nvidia-current`

Via the main menu Advanced>KDE Desktop - worked.

I powered up my NAS (DNS-323) for autodetection.

It was discovered and LMCE added my file shares.

Software discovery was re-kicked and the following tried to download...

linphone library
EXIF/IPTC metadate maniplulation library
QT GUI library MT v3
Debian Font Manager
MNG library
Pluto MythTV Player
Pluto MythTV Plugin
CIFS Utils (Old SAMBA Utils)

...these all reported failed to get, recycled a couple of times until "Installing software finished". appeared.

hmm, I'll have to check some logic and package definitions.  We know why myth was failing but the qtv3 and debian font manager shouldn't be installing for 1404.  If you could file a ticket for this I'd really appreciate it.

Advanced>Computing>Web Admin good.  Edited Software modules to Disk Drive and Videolan client - checked.

Did Disk Drive not install automatically?  Why are you checking 'Videolan client'?  I don't even think we support vlc currently.

Will try Hardware acceleration - xv, no Deinterlace Quality, Standard Video Card tests later.

Sweet!  Thank you!

Battery level...  :P, firmware version.  It claims to have security functions but neither the old driver or the zwave driver knows about them to do anything with them it seems.  I'm really not that sure tbh.
