Internet Installation

Installing LinuxMCE-1204 over the network is a fairly easy process that involves:

  • Installing Kubuntu 12.04
  • Updating Kubuntu 12.04
  • Installing LinuxMCE-1204 on top of the updated Kubuntu 12.04
  1. Install Precise Pangolin desktop and update it. (download Kubuntu 12.04 desktop release from http://releases.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/12.04/kubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-i386.iso Currently, only the 32bit version of LinuxMCE is available. Only download the i386 version of 12.04 Kubuntu, even if your system can support 64bit versions. Note: If Kubuntu asks whether you would like to install/activate 'Restricted Drivers' for your video card, ignore it and continue to step 2.
  2. Grab the latest installer script from our servers.
  3. Run the following (as root): mce-install.sh
  4. Reboot, wait for the activity to stop (see progress on console).

In other words, after installing Kubuntu run the following:

sudo -i
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
reboot # in case a new kernel was installed

Then after reboot:

sudo -i
wget -q http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/trunk/src/new-installer/mce-install.sh && chmod +x mce-install.sh
./mce-install.sh
reboot (if it does not do it automatically)

If you have problems with any aspect of the system please log a trac ticket.
