It stops at "orbitor Failed to Setup Transparency" "Check if transparency manager is running"..Please advise on what to do. Looks like it ready to startup if I can figure this out.
Thanks

It seems you video card doesn't support Alpha Blended UI2. nVidia 6XXX can do it for sure. You can switch back to UI1 using AVWizard or admin site (on the Media director page choose UI1 instead of UI2).

I am having the same issue with the clean, quick, DVD install, and I have an Nvidia 7900GS.  I am trying the Kubuntu install with the MCE package dropped on top of it now.  Will report my findings.
