Ubuntu

Ubuntu Center is a PHP control center for your Ubuntu box. You can stream music from your computer, view your photos, bookmarks, calendar, and much more.

managed to install Ubuntu Center on my Ubuntu box that was the test subject for The Ultimate Ubuntu/TorrentFlux Box featured a couple of weeks ago. I installed with the debian file. It was a bit tricky getting everything to work. It wanted to install php5-gd and libgd2 which I already had installed. I just kept uninstalling and reinstalling with apt and eventually it worked.

Although the installation was working properly, there were still some long-standing messages in the X.Org log file that indicated my installation was not configured completely correctly. I had ignored them for too long and resolved to find their causes and eliminate them. Here is what I did.
