I played with the lightdm.conf (the one located at /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf not the one in /etc/init/) and got the auto login working for me: [SeatDefaults] user-session=mythbuntu allow-guest=false autologin-user=your username greeter-session=mythbuntu-lightdm-gtk-greeter Think that the greeter-session needed to be updated for mythbuntu.

for "regardless of being logged in," you'll need to edit your /etc/network/interfaces file... http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=263136 That link describes the process pretty well... iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.1.15 netmask 255.255.255.0 wireless-essid my_essid gateway 192.168.1.1 pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -i$IFACE ...

Different applications can make use of different "sound systems". For some applications, you can choose the sound backend at run time (e.g., via a preference setting); for other, this has to be a compile-time choice (therefore, it's up to the package maintainer to select one). Applications that come in the main Ubuntu repository have been compiled with ...

How do I install Ubuntu 11.10 and MythTV client on my Lenovo S12 (Intel Atom) laptop and use it using WiFi? I did this because the upgrade from 11.04 bricked the laptop. Note that the partitions on the Lenovo standard disk were already in place for this installation. Also note that my LAN is setup for fixed IP addresses. Downloaded and burned 11.10 ...

If you are a home user and using samba purely for file sharing from a server or NAS you’re probably not interested in sharing printers through it. If so, you can prevent this error from occurring by adding the following lines to your /etc/samba/smb.conf: printing = bsd printcap name = /dev/null Restart samba: /etc/init.d/smbd restart …check your logs: ...

How are Mythbuntu and MythTV related and what are their major differences? Mythbuntu is the official operating system based on Ubuntu. MythTV is software that acts like a PVR (personal video recording) system. It is not limited to Ubuntu but can be used on Fedora called MythDora. What are the definitions of a frontend and backend in the case of ...

You can get it to work: Back up /usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Movie/tmdb.py Grab the updated version of tmdb3.py from: https://raw.github.com/MythTV/mythtv/983bb0e4353d361f6c54f0de0c0db683b8d3be1d/mythtv/programs/scripts/metadata/Movie/tmdb3.py Save it, overwriting /usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Movie/tmdb.py Delete ~/.mythtv/pytmdb3.cache to clear out old values ...

The way we do the repos is by MythTV major version number, and the command to add it would be apt-add-repository ppa:mythbuntu/<MythTV Version number> So for 0.26 it would be apt-add-repository ppa:mythbuntu/0.26 Note that any point releases (such as 0.26.1) would still be the 0.26 version.

Three options for you, ranging from manual-but-easy to manual-and-need-a-doctorate (in that progression). 1. Don't use DHCP. Allocate a static IP in your router (so it doesn't give that IP to another device) and then configure Ubuntu to use that static address. You can do that either with Network Manager (if you're using that) or by editing ...

AVI is a container, not a video codec. What you need to do is figure out what video/audio codecs the video is encoded in, then install them. You can use something like mediainfo (not installed by default) to find out the codecs. To install mediainfo, use apt-get install mediainfo then use it on the file via mediainfo <video file>

Discovered the problem. For some reason, under Setup -> Media Settings -> Videos Settings -> File Types, the entry for avi in the Extension: field had Use default player checked on. I unchecked it, and then in the Command: field, I put in Internal. Absolutely every other file type uses "Internal", so I assumed that was normal. Now it works. I ...

If your box stopped, crashed or you switched it off etc. - it is feasible one of the mythconverg tables got corrupted - in which case you need to run mysqlrepair mysqlrepair -u mythtv -p mythconverg It will ask you for a password - which you can find in the .mythtv/mysql.txt file.

For 11.04 and newer Use compizconfig-settings-manager sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager from a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T), then run it from the dash, just open dash and type ccsm and then goto the Unity plugin and in there you can choose panel opacity to 0. It's the best I can suggest without disabling compiz, and therefore unity. How can I ...

I can not talk about MythBuntu, because I have no experience with it, but, as far as the other three go, they are essentially the same core operating system with a different graphical user interface. Ubuntu is using Unity as it's core graphical user interface experience, Lubuntu is using LXDE and Kubuntu is using KDE (The K Desktop environment). Those ...

I just now found out (thanks to your sleuthing) that a temporary solution is to port forward with ConnectBot. Port Forwarding is a bit tricky, there's a menu entry, "Port Forwards", that shows up once you're connected. You should also be able to get to it by "long pressing" a host before you connect. This Port Forward screen is empty. To add entries to it, ...

Can't say I have the same problem, however it seems similar: On atom box running latest 12.04.1 ubuntu kernel. When boot up I exit frontend. and then go to control-centre. Open it and select Infrared control and remotes; I select Android and then apply - it says nothing to do (this is OK). I then leave control-centre in this state (it seems there is a bug ...

I would say that Mythbuntu is the most straightforward way to get MythTV and a full desktop environment, as it already comes with the lightweight XFCE desktop environment. Straight from the source: Mythbuntu uses the XFCE desktop. All unnecessary standard Ubuntu applications such as LibreOffice, Evolution, and a full Gnome desktop are not installed in a ...

The most common reasons for MythTV tuning issues are: You didn't go though all the steps in mythtv-setup (specifically steps 2, 3, and 4). These 3 steps define the tuner, data, and then connect the tuner to the data. All 3 of these steps are required. You set your tuner to use multiplexing (number of recordings > 1) and it doesn't support multiplexing. ...

I find that 150G for all of / is a quite good size. It allows for ample space for games, movies, music etc. while maintaining plenty of room for the OS. My current install is: It's worth noting that I have don installs (fully running) in 7G and most of my servers on EC2 have a 10G / and a 40G /home (though there are exceptions based on certain needs).

To answer my own question: I was barking up the wrong tree. Mythbuntu's backup and restore correctly backs up and restores the password for the database with the database, but apparently not quite everywhere that it's needed (not in ~mythtv/.mythtv/config.xml). Manually editing the password in there to match the other config files (such as mysql.txt in the ...

A simple way to resolve this error is to edit line 40 (or thereabouts) in /usr/bin/mythbuntu-control-centre, removing the now obsolete(!) reference to AptMessageDialog. Note that you'll still want to keep the other 2 references in the import statement, so just insert a parenthesis at the end of line before, then delete the line containing AptMessageDialog) ...
