LinuxMCE 0810

Although LinuxMCE 0710 is the latest official release, its development and features haven't been touched for a number of years. Currently all development is done in LinuxMCE 0810.
Even if there are some issues (LinuxMCE 0810 is still a Beta), it is recommended for most users to download and install the latest LinuxMCE 0810 DVD snapshot image.
Latest snapshot DVDs can be found at http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/

Installation Help

Before installing, check out the Known issues, and please read the Installation Guide and/or the DVD Installation guide. Installing from DVD is the fastest. Installing from CD .iso images on your hard disk is second fastest (you will need to install Kubuntu 8.10 first), and installing from burned CDs is slowest.

NOTE: It is a good idea to use md5sum and the checksums to verify your download is not corrupted.

NOTE: It is essential that you burn your CDs and DVDs using the slowest possible speed your burner supports - faster speeds regularly cause corruptions on the burn which will be fatal to your install.

What you have to download

To install LinuxMCE you need to download the DVD (which includes everything needed for the installation) or you can download Kubuntu 8.10 and use LinuxMCE install script.

Warning: The DVD installation will wipe the entire disk of the machine -- all previous data will be permanently lost! (Note: There is a new "keep settings" option which will preserve data in the home directory for most, but not all, installations. Also, there are instructions on how to use the DVD Install with custom partitions)


If you have some issues with LinuxMCE 0810 you can use the forum for support, and if you want you can also install older LinuxMCE 0710

Download locations

NOTE: Please use the Bit Torrent downloads wherever possible, to ensure a clean, uncorrupted download, and then leave it seeding as long as possible. Important: Always burn these DVDs at the slowest possible speed your drive supports ... this is critical!
