I followed the directions on the wiki here: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_1404
Step #1 says: "Install Trusty Tahr desktop and update it. (download Kubuntu 14.04 desktop release from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/releases/14.04/release/kubuntu-14.04-desktop-i386.iso
The update instructions that I followed are at the bottom of the wiki page, specifically:
Please confirm. The install is functional in all other regards. Clearly some device templates are working fine, like the USB-UIRT. Checking device #1779, for Pioneer Plasmas, the device template shows that no commands are implemented in WebAdmin. I went to Developers -> Device Templates, selected 1779, and clicked on "Edit Ruby Codes." Do you see something different?
I am so sorry to be a noob. It seems I am taking a difficult path to getting my install up but I *am* getting there and learning a lot. LMCE is awesome. Thanks to Phenigma and Posde for patient guidance.
