so you geek it by programming in the terminal and not an IDE over say vnc

Do i have to work from the core if i do c++, yes the screen is big 42in but if i go to kde the res is not good for programming

Ok, so lets say i do it your way.

first i guess i would install kubuntu 10.04 on a VBOX just to keep life separate i do all programming in the VBOX.

2. I guess i need to start looking at source code so i need to learn how to use SVN and how to install it

what els, think basic minded for now to get me started, I guess i'll make it a hobby of learning LinuxMCE instead of learning scripts

PS. does it sound like a good idea though LOL.

as for the IRC i'm looking it up

The reason i want LinuxMCE to read responses from NUT, I want to use LinuxMCE as a whole house solution the brain if you must, have it take care of devices and report to me what happens and when.
Yes i can have NUT and many types of software talk to the other computers directly but then i would have so many things to keep an i on, if LinuxMCE was the goto like i see it as, (dcerouter) then i only have one thing to take care of.

yes scripts may not be the best way to do these things but i can do scripts i can research them and write them, but i can't do that with LinuxMCE it is programming that i cant get my head round and there is only the wiki to go on.

with my script I can shutdown/control any devices that i can ssh into, all device are logged to LinuxMCE in DHCP now that would be brill for me if instead of listing all devices with an IP/MAC it would list them with a device number like it does everything els, (like when you PXE boot that device is given a number).

Lets think of a computer like a bluetooth phone, when linux detects it, it will ask what device it is then send software (orbiter) to the device etc, it picks up the IP of the computer then knows the OS and sends the orbiter.
the orbiter would include SIP and messaging, and ability for the core to control it like shutdown/reboot, in linux run update manager etc, the core would also be able to use the input devices on said devices.

Now i'm sure you could agree with the above being a really good idea, and also tell me it would be a nightmare to program so i am attempting to try and do some of this by means of script because I can't program and i'm not gonna ask you to do it for me.

to you it may seem crazy to say duct tape it but to me, its away to learn and get good at scripting I'm thinking i might need to use python for some scripts. (I AM A NEWBE)

the wiki has some basic info for a none programmer to do some basic tasks that are pre defined, so if you want to do something out of the box you have to:
1, post on the forum and see if you get answer from the only people that know the system (Devs) who are over worked (annoyed pissed off, frustrated, tired) and don't have the time to give help to new comers so they give them a basic response, and in most cases you still need to know something about the system to work out what they are telling you so they will post back again for some more info on where what and how to for the response they previously got.
2, look at the wiki which does have a load of info but you need to have an understanding of the programming/and or the system to understand most of it.

I see in webadmin there are tooltips which would be brill it would solve all my info needs and would never have to post in the forum again exept for advanced stuff,
but some of them have no info or they don't have any meaning to a none Dev of this system.

for instance i say to you "I cant even get a timed events to run a .sh script if i could then i could make the script ssh in to the PC's and run commands that way"
1). in basic form i want the core at 12:00 to run shutdown.sh (i can write the shutdown.sh script which i'm working on and mostly works)

2). from this i can then go to the next thing and try to get NUT to run a script when on battery which I'm working on.

3). Look into having LMCE read responses from the output of the script from NUT.

4). Look at how 1. works and see about changing it from a timed event to when that is called when output is read from NUT.

I cant find anything in the wiki as to how to run a script .sh at a pre defind time.

I wish it was more easier to understand LMCE/Linux, the last time i did any programming and had it work was with a commodore 64/Amiga 501, back in the day.
I cant even get a timed events to run a .sh script if i could then i could make the script ssh in to the PC's and run commands that way.
With LMCE everthing is just guess work with out any manual to give you hints, thats why so meny users keep post on the forum like me, and bothering the Devs

I read through the forum and seen an old post i think it was by you back in 2007 http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=2707.0
did you get anywhere with it.
I'm looking into it because i'm finding it really hard to get the UPS idea working  http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=10234.msg70441;topicseen#msg70441
so i thought i'd start the basics and see if i could first control an Ubuntu PC (boot up shutdown etc), from the core on an event
but i just get no where, so that lead me to seeing if i could find an orbiter for Ubuntu, I did try PXE booting but that loops and I'ts an old distro which I don't think would be much use as dual workstation/orbiter like say windows vista with MCE

Does any one know why there is no stand alone Ubuntu orbiter like we have for Windows.

Flash always worked in hulu untill this recent reinstall. i don't know about firefox as the resolution for KDE apps just sucks so i never tested them. I just use it as a media center/gateway
