Hi folk Iḿ totally newbee.

Today I just installed th ubuntu 10.04, and it seems with success
but now I have tried to install the EMC2.and I get mostly the whole way, I get to step 4 I key in my password, and a window pop with a lotś lines running for about 2 minuts, with a percentigs in the lower right corner, and when it finsh the whole process just seems to stop, I newer got to step 5.
any there can help me??

* Step 1: Install Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx (for 32-bit) or 8.04 Hardy Heron (for 32- or 64-bit). Other versions of Ubuntu will not work with EMC2 as there are no packages designed to work with them.
* Step 2: Once you have installed Ubuntu , get the install script from here: lucid-install or here: hardy-install, choose "Save to Disk" and click OK.
* Step 3: Now an emc2-install.sh icon will appear on your Desktop. Right-click that icon, select Properties. Go to the Permissions tab and check the box for Owner: Execute. Close the Properties window.
* Step 4: Now double-click the emc2-install.sh icon, and select "Run in Terminal". A terminal will appear and you will be asked for your password.
* Step 5: When the installation asks if you are sure you want to install the EMC2 packages, hit Enter to accept. Now just allow the install to finish.
* Step 6: When it is done, you must reboot (System > Log Out > Restart the Computer) - once you have rebooted you can run EMC2 by selecting it on the Applications > CNC menu.
* Step 7: If you aren't ready to set up a machine configuration, try the sim-AXIS configuration; it runs a "simulated machine" that requires no attached hardware.

Now that the initial installation is done, Ubuntu will prompt you when updates of EMC2 or its supporting files are available. When they are, you can update them easily and automatically with the Update Manager.

The simplest way to get EMC is to download the LiveCD from this web site and use it to install Ubuntu and EMC at the same time.

That's OK if you need to install a new UBUNTU, but, I have UBUNTU on my PC with lots of programs, I do not want to loose them with the new installation. How can one install only EMC2???
