Describes how to upgrade from LinuxMCE 1204 to 1404.


The normal way of upgrading between Ubuntu releases are the 'do-release-upgrade' command.

This does not work for LinuxMCE (most likely because the update tool disables 3rd party sources (like LinuxMCE) and we have to many dependencies to ubuntu packages for the upgrade to complete without breaking spectacular).

How to upgrade

Edit /etc/apt/source.list and replace all 'precise' with 'trusty'


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

The following packages will be REMOVED:

apache2.2-common asterisk asterisk-modules asterisk-mysql asterisk-prompt-de asterisk-voicemail foomatic-filters ghostscript-cups
 hpijs hpijs-ppds hplip jockey-common jockey-kde kcm-touchpad kde-config-touchpad kdelibs5 kdepimlibs5 language-pack-kde-en-base

More to come.

Preliminary report: tried do-release-upgrade - didn't succeed. Instead renamed all precise sources to trusty and ran apt-get upgrade, followed by apt-get dist-upgrade - and whole bunch of manual removal and reinstall ...
