I'm a very new member in the LMCE community and have no experience with Linux (Kubunto) at all. However the installation on my old PC of Kubuntu 8.10 went smoothly and also the installation of Linux MCE. So far everything seems to work. Today I wanted to play a DVD, which doesn't seem to be trivial! I found out that I had to install additional SW to play encrypted DVD's and tried to install the required SW from the Linux Admin Website (Avanced/Add Software). Obviously this page is currently not available and I couldn't install the SW.I was checking, whether there are other possibilities to install this SW and found out that it can be done directly through the terminal wiindow of KDE. In the description of the SW-installation it is mentioned that Linux MCE has to be closed completely and only Kubuntu should run. Here comes my problem: My system starts LinuxMCE automatically and I have no idea how to change this (Of course I can open the KDE-Desktop within LinuxMCE, but this is not what I want to do). Is there a possibility to bypass the automatic start of LinuxMCE? In principle I would really appreciate it, if the system starts only Kubuntu and NOT LinuxMCE on top. Is there a possibility to configure this? In the User Manual I found something about the LinuxMCE Launchmanager, but I didn't find any information how to start it and how to reconfigure the system, so LinuxMCE won't start automatically (only Kubuntu should start and I would like to start LinuxMCE from the KDE-Desktop). As soon as this problem is fixed, I will probably have more questions (especially how to get access to a Windows xP PC within the same Network from my LinuxMCE Core/hybrid Server).
Thanks in advance.
