a few questions
« on: March 27, 2007, 03:12:58 pm »
i finally fixed the black screen by plugging in my lcd.. finishing the setup. then plugging it into the t.v. and messing around with video settings from the web..

anyway i have a few questions now :)

1. I plugged in a webcam.. how will ubunbu detect/install/ and let pluto find it ?
2. How do i find/copy media from the network, or attached drive
3. I'm missing the generic ntfs/samba share templates for some reason and can't find any way to download them
4. If i choose the install as a dedicated linuxmce machine... can i still exit mce and go back to ubuntu to do a coupla things ?

Thanks any help would be quite useful i think :)

there's a 'usage intro' guide that address 2 and 4 I think.  (go to the 'download' page for a link).

Regarding 1, to be honest, i'm not sure usb web cam's are working in lmce.  I use a panasonic ip cam and it's totally pnp.  usb web cams is important, just not sure anybody's gotten to it.  can you expand on #3?  What template is missing?  A deb package?
