I'm new to Ubuntu but have good experience with computers.
Now i have tried to install a Ubuntu and player on a Intel NUC DN2820.

I have read a lot of messages in this community and that have helped with some issues. But now i'm stuck and need help. 
I tried to delete the rvplayer directory and reinstall. Still same problem.

During install i get this text with no crontab for root.
If i try to start manually there is a clock for 15 seconds and then nothing.

The chromium log says:
/home/ds1/rvplayer/chrome-linux/chrome: error while loading shared libraries: libudev.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I found this in another problem and tried but still the same: 
sudo ln -s libudev.so.1 libudev.so.0


Pls suggest what to do?

Somehow i got it working. Made som links to try to solve the problem with libudev.so.0
and also had to "unlock" the rvplayer library.

The problem is that there where so many alterations to get this working that I still feel unsure if I can get it to work in the next install. So I kindly ask:

Is there anyone that have made a checklist for installing a new installation with Ubuntu 14.04.1?

Good morning!

Have you checked out our Ubuntu 14.04 optimization guide here? This should guide you through the process!

Thanks for that! I did search this community and come up blank. Of course I have seen that page, but thought it was all about optimating after a working install.
Can only blaim that it's not me first langage...
I'm new with Rise Vision, but so far I love it !

That's good to hear!

Another, possibly easier option to display on Ubuntu, would be our Chrome App Player. It's simply an extension that install directly into Google chrome. It's available on http://www.risevision.com/player

Ok, I will test that also. Pherhaps that solves a problem i have with web page widget. This presentation 
http://preview.risevision.com/Viewer.html?type=presentation&id=d83df75f-040c-4807-8c4b-74f2b1edd... shows a server generated pdf. It works well on windows player, but on the linux player it tries to download the file instead of showing it. Do you think this works better with chrome app player, or is there another solution?

Michael,

It really depends on what other settings and extensions you have enabled on Chrome. I wouldn't say that displaying PDFs is really supported at this point in time, however I did just run a test in a chrome app player with no other extensions and it did work.

Your mileage may vary in this case.
