Hi, I'm having problems getting LinuxMCE installed on one of the computers at college.
I'm using the 8.10 DVD from the download links and so far have kubuntu installed and running. The problem comes from the installer link that's left on the desktop. I click it and it opens the terminal to start doing whatever it does, then after about a minute of doing nothing a get roughly 100 lines informing me that the program can't find files at certain locations (despite being able to load those links in konqueror).
After another short while it tells me that MCE is finished installing and to restart to finish configuring MCE. However, when I restart the computer I'm back at the shell to login and startx.
I tried a network install of MCE and it kept asking me if I was root. A fellow student informed me that kubuntu had no root user.
P.S. I'm a total Linux noob. It took me 4 distros to get Linux on my PS3, ended up with YDL. Fedora just wouldn't do anything.
