Following is a list of things you can do with LinuxMCE. Each link goes to a how-to page which has 3 parts:

  1. How to set it up
  2. How to use it
  3. Where to find the source code (and how it works)

The list is not complete, and many of the topics do not yet have documentation. Not all documentation pages have screen shots and pictures. Feel free to add your own documentation to the wiki.

Most of the articles reflect tested procedures (even if the documentation is not written). Items in italics describe modules still in development or that have been only partially completed. Items with an * have been coded, and should work, but have not been fully tested.

Note: This is an introduction article only. The complete list of articles is found in the Tutorials Category.

Also see the Usage Intro.
