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: ...


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 ...

I jettisoned it and now run from a live usb stick. No issues. I'm currently running 12.04.3 64 bit with nividia 303.88, VDPAU normal. It's solid.
