Yes, the installer archive has been updated a few hours ago. It contains a few fixes, especially with regards to the repo.

Right, I've got past that now by adding in the avenard repos.

AVwizard went OK, and I setup the screen etc. Now when it starts I get a window with the title "Orbiter cannot register with the router. Please try again later". I've searched the forum and found some very old discussion on this, that said the fault was due to asterisk being disabled. On my machine asterisk is defnitely running. It might be that I've screwed up something else with my tinkering, so if it's not an easy fix I may be better to reinstall (at least I will be working with the very latest installer then as well).

Great. I'm running the new installer now, and am past the point where the old one hang.

Onwards to the next problem... :-)

Started from scratch (3rd time), and it worked this time (due to adding the extra repo).

Thanks for the help - I'll be back soon when I get stuck on the next bits!  :D

Couldn't get it to work with internet installation also.

Seems to install everything fine, I even can run the AV Wizzard, but after rebooting all I get is a grey screen with the mouse pointer..... anybody has similar Problems?

Got it today, installing from the net, using the latest installer script.

The following message is being displayed for the last 6 hours........

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  pluto-orbiter: Depends: pluto-avwizard but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
#### Package pluto-orbiter failed (/tmp/tmp.dfQgL30576) - We wait 10sec and try again - to stop retrying press Ctrl-C.

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:


Any way to fix it?

In my case the msttcorefonts package doesn't work.
The sourceforge mirrors where the font files are supposed to be isn't working.

I found a workaround to fix the package using the japanese sourceforge mirror, by editing:
/var/lib/dpkg/info/msttcorefonts.postinst

replacing it with this code:
Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive]
#!/bin/bash

#Version: 1.0
#Info: Bash script to install mscorefonts without using
#currently broken msttcorefonts package for Ubuntu 8.10

#Create temp and mscorefonts dir
sudo mkdir /usr/share/fonts/truetype/mscorefonts
mkdir /tmp/mscorefonts
cd /tmp/mscorefonts

#Clean up
cd ~
rm -r /tmp/mscorefonts

after editing the file, I re-install the msttcorefonts package manually with
Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive]
sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts before running the LinuxMCE install scripts.

But it appears that when installing the pluto-orbiter package the install script re-downloads the broken msttcorefonts package again, overwriting my msttcorefonts.postinst workaround.

..thus causing said error again.

I believe that by fixing the msttcorefonts package the issue can be resolved.

However I don't know how to do it.
