Hi,

I just downloaded the LinuxMCE 7.10Beta3 CD install for amd64.  I performed an install of Kubuntu 7.10 (for amd64),and did not do any updates.

I copied the LinuxMCE ISOs to the system, mounted CD1 and installed the mce-installer package.  When click on the Desktop icon, nothing happens.  I tried running the '/usr/share/mce-installer/mce-installer.sh' script directly and still nothing happens.  I have tried running it using sudo as well as directly as the 'root' user, and still nothing.

Anyone els have trouble like this?  If so, what was the resolution?  If anyone has any other ides, I would appreciate hearing them

Thanks, in advance.

OK, I solved the issue.

I took a look at the script and noticed that is is set to run on display ':0'.  I am connecting to the box remotely using "no machine", which is not running from that display.  I ran the the command 'echo $DISPLAY' then replaced the ':0' in the script witht eh value I got.

Installer is now working.
