Kubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Installation

Important.png I recently had to start my frontend from scratch and seeing as gutsy was just released I decided to go with that and make a writeup. This is a rough text for future proper formatting...

Note that MythBuntu has been updated to 7.10 to coincide with Ubuntu/Kubuntu's release. There are advantages to going this route, especially if you don't plan on running SVN, so I'd suggest looking into that first.


A basic install is fine, once your in you'll want to install SSH and possibly NFS. if you have a remote control you'll want to install lirc from [mediabuntu] As well, you'll probably want to install

  • libdvdcss2
  • w32codecs

Compiling SVN


you'll need the build-essential and subversion packages at a minimum. you'll also need

  • libfreetype6-dev (which will install zlib1g-dev)
  • liblame-dev (which will install liblame0)
  • libqt3-mt-dev (which will install a whole slew of -dev packages)
  • libdts-dev (for DTS support)
  • libasound2-dev (for ALSA)

  • libraw1394-dev, libiec61883-dev, libavc1394-dev (firewire support)
  • libqt3-mt-mysql
