What you did is correct!  I simply wanted to verify the method you used.  Do you remember the package names that you had to install?

Installation issues / 1080i over HDMI with Intel Graphics
« Last post by cafedumonde on August 05, 2016, 03:26:22 am »

My 14.04 installation seems to be working fine in all respects on my lcd monitor over the DVI port. The motherboard is an ASUS P8 H67-M LE with onboard intel graphics.

I am now trying to get the system to display 1080i so that I can use it with my old Sony CRT television, with component inputs and an HDMI to component converter. This configuration used to work well on my old 8.10 setup by simply adding the right modeling to xorg.conf and disabling the AVwizard overwrite. I previously had an Nvidia video card. Now, I am trying to use the onboard Intel graphics without success.

It seems that much has changed with the introduction of digital video standards. I expect that EDID may be somehow superseding what I have in xorg.conf. Another theory is the need to pass i915.modeset=0, and perhaps other parameters in grub to force the right timings. In any event, features designed to make digital video connections easier have complicated setup for analog monitors.

Many will say that the smart thing is to just get a new TV, which I may do. One would cost less than my time but I still prefer the CRT picture. Plus, my Sony is a 40 inch KV-40700XBR and I am reluctant to move the 300 pound monster out of my apartment!

Please help.

Thanks,

CDM

I used an internet installation, with the wget command from the wiki page:

https://git.linuxmce.org/linuxmce/linuxmce/raw/master/src/install-helpers/mce-install.sh

Please let me know if I should have gone elsewhere.

Thanks for the feedback on the installation!

Could you elaborate on which method of installation you used (snapshot or internet) and which snapshot (if it was a snapshot).  Thanks!

It connects but like I said...no media is being presented....like the problem I had before...maybe there is still some old config snag on that phone

I would install the latest build (i believe its been built) and then go to the advanced screen -> settings, and hit 'clear settings'. then exit and reopen it.

UpdateMedia should autostart. If it doesn't auto start, run

 /usr/pluto/bin/UpdateMediaDaemonControl.sh enable

The main part of the media database that you want to clear is the table File

mysql pluto_media -e "truncate File"

You can add as many codecs as you feel like :)

Am i right to assume, that every phone or Tablet needs its own qorbiter device?
Right now i have a tablet and an android phone, each got their own device. The tablet is working nicely, the phone not so much...i cannot browse any media and subsequently not play anything using that phone.

Yes, each device should have its own qorbiter device.


What happens with the phone? It just doesn't connect?

Installation issues / Minor Issues With 1404 Install
« Last post by cafedumonde on August 03, 2016, 02:38:17 am »

I installed 1404 today using the instructions here:

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_1404

There were two minor issues:

1. Basic video codecs were not installed and hence no videos would play, including Sarah. This was true from within LMCE as well as using the bundled video player on the kubuntu desktop. It seems to have been fixed using instructions for restricted formats on the Ubuntu community page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats

2. The UpdateMedia script is not running by default and thus not adding videos to the database. I ran the script manually as root and this fixes the problem though I have now added a bunch of junk to the database.

I have a few questions:

1. How can I get UpdateMedia to run normally?

2. How can I clear the database and get UpdateMedia to add only files from the correct locations?

3. Have I screwed anything up by adding the codec support in the manner described? I also added libdvdcss using the instructions on the Ubuntu page.

Thanks,

CDM
