    Ubuntu 18.04 anyone?

    Inevitable question - I have started to create an Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and LMS 7.91 VM.

    Anyone else gathered any experiences? If not I shall report. :-)

    18.04 works fine for me with LMS with one caveat. MusicIP does not work without some additional tinkering. I have posted my solution on the last post of this thread HERE. I am not using a VM but a full install.
