I have tried several times to get this squared up.  I tried installing onto several different systems with different configs.  All have problems of some sorts.

So I'm trying to get this working in VMware to see if this will ever work.   I boot to the Ubuntu gui first.  Then click on LinuxMCE.  It first loaded to a gray screen.  When I changed resolutions it came up with a transparency issue.  I switched the UI2 to UI1 in the Media Director section on the web interface.  Now  I just get a black screen.

I tried loading an orbiter on a windows computer but it says that "Orbiter cannot register with the router."

Here is the log for pluto.

Prehaps this may be of some help --- although does not deal directly with your issue... After also trying to install Lmce on several different systems and having various obstacles, I opted for a vmware based install. What i had kept encountering on previous installs was, after Lmce installs and asks to reboot, I reboot, Ubuntu's loading screen comes up, then 1 of two things A.) screen cant support Lmce's auto detected resolution. or B.) screen is black

Now when I installed via vmware (with out vmware tools installed on image) the same would happen however what i was able to do was use the scroll bars to scroll to the center of screen which low and behold had a window which was in the midst of downloading and or updating..... after prehaps 40 min to an hour and the completion of its activity, the screen res switched to a more reasonable res and I encountered the green setup menu.

so long story short prehaps your black screen is really just the top left corner of a ridiculously high screen res (as in my case) 

Did you find when installing as a vmware image that your setup took an unreasonable amount of time....? Mine has been going for around 3 hours now at 100% cpu usage.. on a 3.2 GHz with 2GB ddrII 533MHz, SataII 7200rpm drive.... I think I'll restart shortly as this seems odd.
