Hi David,

Thanks for the systemd links, it helped me sort out the last little bits 
I had going wrong.

I've uploaded all the scripts to github and updated the wiki entry.

Wiki here: http://rivendell.tryphon.org/wiki/UbuntuXenial
Github here: https://github.com/waynemerricks/rivendellubuntuxenial

I recommend installing Ubuntu 16.04 server rather than the desktop 
flavours.  Once you've got that installed, download the script package 
and unzip to your home dir so that it is ~/install, then just run sudo 
./001.install.sh my_riv_user_name

About 20minutes later you'll have QT3, Rivendell 2.13.0 and a minimal XFCE

Remember to run sudo rdalsconfig and rdadmin (reboot if you get an 
unable to start daemons error).
