If I had to guess I would say that it sounds like some serious networking problems during install prevented the system from configuring and installing properly. That is my reaction from all of your posts I have just read.
I've been going nuts with dhcp addressing issues taking control of things it shouldn't.
If anyone has a working Flickr on 12.04 - under /home/public/data/pictures/flickr/2014/02/XX where XX is 18, 19, 20 do you have 2 or 3 same file numbers with extensions?Like XXXXXXX.jpg XXXXXXX.jpg.tnj and/or XXXXXXX.jpg.id3?
I don't think that's a bad guess. I had some errors come up during the installation regarding networking but when all was done and dusted the network was up and things were working. I wasn't sure if the issues were real or what everyone experiences.I'll have a look at my install notes and see if I noted the errors, otherwise I'll clobber another install and take screenshots the old fashioned way.
The .jpg is the original image file, the .jpg.tnj file is a thumbnail image for use in lmce menus and datagrids and .id3 files are used to store metadata about files. These are all normal files to find on an LMCE system.J.
