linuxmce?
 
Is LinuxMCE possible in Ubuntu 7.0.4?
http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/D...d_Instructions

I burned the iso, I double clicked the installer file after installing it's deb file, but nothing happens.

LinuxMCE on Ubuntu 7.0.4 :: Solution
 
First some keyword loading for Googlebot.

Ubuntu LinuxMCE Installer fails and does nothing when I click on the desktop icon. It also does nothing when I run mce-installer.sh from the shell command line. The installer is in /usr/share/mce-installer/mce-installer.sh. While running Linux MCE on Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn). The installer just fails. It seems to just quit. Nothing happens when I click the desktop icon for "Install Linux MCE".

So here is the real problem:

The installer is looking for "liboobs-1.so.2" and it's not there. We're running one better..."liboobs-1.so.3". SO we'll just create a symlink to "liboobs-1.so.3" and name it "liboobs-1.so.2". You do this by running the following from the terminal (copy and paste is easier):

sudo ln -s liboobs-1.so.3 /usr/lib/liboobs-1.so.2

There you go.

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:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

Easiest Solution
 
Chad,

The easiest solution is going to be to install Ubuntu 6.10 as directed in the instructions.

Link here:
http://ubuntu.cs.utah.edu/releases/6...sktop-i386.iso

You can see from the error log that the LinuxMCE installer is hard coded to look for the edgy updates. There are what it is going to check against. It also updates specific packages to satisfy dependency issues for additional packages installed from the LinuxMCE CD.

Your choices are to edit the numerous entries in multiple files that hard code updates, version numbers and web locations...or simple follow the directions and install Ubuntu 6.10.

I have tried it both ways...the RTFM / FTFD method is far, FAR easier and faster too.

Long and short: Yes you can get LinuxMCE to install on Ubuntu 7.04...or you can take the easy way out and use Ununtu 6.10. Knowing what I know now...I'd take the easy way everytime.
