Command './mce-installer' not found
« on: January 22, 2008, 07:40:18 pm »
So I fresh installed Kubuntu on my PC, and burned the 2 cd version.  Put the first disk in, then installed the mce-installer thing.  Every time I try to execute it, it asks for my password, then shows "Command './mce-installer' not found"

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Faceless King

Same problem here. I removed the exec line with /dev/null in the script for it to be more verbose. It says:

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data..format violated

Maybe the installer is corrupted.

I am downloading the DVD version now, but, I'd rather use what I have access to.

Not too mention that'll take like 16 hours.

Hmm, if it is corrupt though, I suppose I'll have to wait for the dvd's to get done.

WAIT, I GOT IT WORKING!

I am just writing a small shell script, stand by.

So, I have the following script:

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash

exec &>/dev/null </dev/null
export DISPLAY=:0
echo ""
echo "Linux MCE Installer Starting ... please wait"
echo ""

# create a temp directory to extract to.
export WRKDIR=`mktemp -d /tmp/selfextract.XXXXXX`

#SKIP=`awk '/^__ARCHIVE_FOLLOWS__/ { print NR + 1; exit 0; }' $0`

# Take the TGZ portion of this file and pipe it to tar.
#tail -n +$SKIP $0 | tar xz -C $WRKDIR

tail -n 5071 /usr/share/mce-installer/mce-installer.sh >/tmp/inst.sh

# execute the installation script

PREV=`pwd`
cd $WRKDIR
tar xzf /tmp/inst.sh
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$WRKDIR
export PATH=$PATH:$WRKDIR
if [[ $UID != "0" ]] ;then
        mv ./mce-installer ./mce-installer-user
        echo "#!/bin/bash
              LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$WRKDIR ./mce-installer-user
              " > ./mce-installer
        chmod +x ./mce-installer
        ./mce-installer-user
else
        mkdir -p /home/public/data/samples || :
        cp ./sample.mpg /home/public/data/samples/ || :
        ./mce-installer
fi


# delete the temp files
cd $PREV
rm -rf $WRKDIR

exit 0

But this gets me the error "kdesu cannot connect to X server"

xhost + doesn't work either.

EDIT: It now works.

Delete the line
rm -rf $WRKDIR
from above. Then run: kdesu xterm
In this xterm, go to the /tmp/selfextract.XXXXXXX
There, execute: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./mce-installer

Ok, so I am Linux incompetent, how do I do this?

I used Ubuntu briefly a year or so ago, but I can't remember much at all.

Open a text editor and copy-paste what's in the code-block. Then remove the line as I appended there. Save the document as whatever you want it to be named.

Then do a chmod a+rx filename (filename is what you named the script).

then do ./filename

then you can execute kdesu xterm or gksudo xterm, cd to the temp directory and run the installer script.

EDIT: Still doesn't work - it seems not to recognize the Kubuntu Live CD.

Here is the installer log:

I am assuming you have the right version of kubuntu with the proper version of Linuxmce .

I have seen similar issues when the Linuxmce installer is for a different version than the one you trying to install

make sure your kubuntu is 0704 if installing Linuxmce 0704  and Linuxmce 0710b3 if installing on kubuntu 0710

I have had that error once, but it was due to faulty RAM.

Ah, I have the wrong version of Kubuntu, someone probably ought to update the wiki then.  I followed it's instructions and did all the downloads through the provided links.

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installation_Guide

It clearly says to use version 704 of kubuntu, and doesn't say anything about needing a new version.

Ok, so I updated to 710 from within Kubuntu, and so far all seems well, I am still installing everything though, I'll keep you updated.

When posting please give a little more detail on what method cd- dvd and verions of both linuxmce as well as the kubuntu version.

Sorry, I had just downloaded everything according the the guide.  SO I had assumed it would all work.

However I am still not succeeding in the install as I updated and didn't have a 710 disk, so, I have to download that as well.

The guide needs fixed.
