I think i had a bad install, i reinstalled ubuntu and ran the script again and now it is installing, and differently than last time. last time it kept saying stuff like "copying 500 of 44,000 lines" and went on for hours, i imagine it will go faster this time. who knows what it did wrong :P :) if there is a mistake to be made, let me assure you i will find it :P anywho, I will keep going and come back if I have further questions. Thanks so much!

I cannot recreate the issue.  I installed ubuntu 14.04 i386 from here:, then ran the install script and everything installed in about an hour.  Rebooted the system and the LinuxMCE AV Wizard came up.  Completed the AV Wizard and the LinuxMCE Orbiter showed up on-screen.  Fully installed with no issues.

I will try to replicate the issue.  If I can then I'll be able to offer advice.

well the good news it it installed....i think. my computer wouldnt use kubuntu, maybe thats why it wouldnt take the iso from the site for lmce. but it did install Ubuntu, and then I ran the command mentioned above to install it on top of ubuntu. it ran for like 12 hours and then restarted. now it wants a login and password....but wont take the username or password that i set up with there a default user login that i missed? sorry to be the eternal newbie, just keep getting stuck.

It really depends on what you want to do with your core.  If you're looking to only do home automation (ZWave/Insteon/Hue/etc) type control then your core does not need to be much at all.  If you check my signature link you will see everything that I'm running in my house, I use a small ARM based core.  In many ways it is comparable to my AMD Athlon X2, but not in all.

If you're going to hook anything to the system that *can* be processor or IO intensive (dvb cards, ip cameras) then you definitely want something that is AMD or Intel.  Intel processors with integrated graphics are well supported (according to user reports), there are some changes in the linux world regarding AMD graphics drivers so I wouldn't recommend that route at the moment.

In my sig link you'll see my NAS system, it used to be my core before I began experimenting with the odroid ARM device.

Almost anything that's out there in the PC world is sufficient (as long as it can run k/l/ubuntu).  Stay away from laptops and tablet type devices for a core, they work great as Orbiter controllers but not as a core.

So the horsepower really depends on what kind of ongoing processing you need.  I don't have an ip cams or video capture devices in my core, I can serve multiple HD streams to RPis and my living room MediaDirector (nvidia vdpau acceleration for video) with no issues.

I hope that helps a little.  System sizes can vary across the entire spectrum depending on your intended use.

I am sorry to hear about the sham, and I certainly find this forum very helpful and responsive. sorry, I have not had time this week to test anything yet, work has been crazy. But I should have time tomorrow to test out that kubuntu install first plan. one last question before I start though, what are the suggested system requirements for the core? I read them on the wiki but I am not sure if that info is outdated or not. Thanks again for all of your help so far and have a great week!

I was allways under the impression that we had to Install Kubuntu and net install LMCE and not Ubuntu.... I know they are similar, but just to make sure we don't lead the newbie down the wrong track....

You can install ubuntu/kubuntu or lubuntu, the lmce installer will ensure all appropriate elements are installed.

  • Since Andrew (From Dianemo) left the support/feedback for Dianemo is non existent on the Forum. LMCE you get helpful responses fairly quickly and almost allways more than one person willing to help

I would like to remind you that Andrew was stealing from CHT and fraudulently representing himself and the company on the forum here for nearly a year before he 'dissappeared' with a bunch of pre-order monies that had been intended to order what he called their new Open Source RPI system, which appears to have been a complete sham.

Im trying to use more often the qorbiter.  On a Samsung S6 the app is still working ok, there are some options that are not working. 
1.  Volume: On the media director that is connected to a DENON, it does not change the volume
2.  Queue instead of instant play does not work.



Is there any way for you to follow the log and post a snippet? Would like to see what its saying when you press volume.
