Installation

  1. Install Kubuntu Intrepid, update it and enable the restricted (video) drivers if needed. (download Kubuntu 8.10 release)
  2. Run aptitude update and aptitude dist-upgrade to get the latest Kubuntu updates.
  3. Grab the latest installer script from here, unpack them and change into the freshly created new-installer directory.
  4. Run the following scripts (as root, in order): pre-install-from-repo.sh, mce-install.sh, post-install.sh.
  5. Reboot, wait for the activity to stop (see progress on console 8).

In other words, after installing Kubuntu and upgrading it etcetera:

sudo su - #This might ask for the password you specified earlier during the install of kubuntu.
wget -c http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/new-installer-alpha-latest.tar.gz
tar xvf new-installer-alpha-latest.tar.gz
cd new-installer
./pre-install-from-repo.sh
./mce-install.sh
./post-install.sh
reboot

nVidia Restricted Driver

Install the nVidia restricted driver (177) from KDE using the Hardware Manager before installing LinuxMCE 0810 Alpha for the best results

MythTV

Remove reference to hardy in /etc/apt/sources.list

from terminal

sudo apt-get install pluto-mythtv-player

Install updated version of pluto-mythtv-plugin

Updates

Check if there is no junk in /etc/apt/sources.list then:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Or use a package manager on the KDE desktop for more convenience.
