Thanks, that was really helpful. Reason comes up fine. I'm figuring out how to use it.

Yt tells me I have to install the gtk+ interface, not originially on my os installation before it can install. To do this I have to load a bunch of things not native on my os, which is Ubuntu (linux). Soon as I have the gtk+ installed then I get a quirky error booting up:
Hmm, interesting -- you shouldn't have to install the GTK+ interface unless you want to use the GUI. (By default, though, in some old versions of install_script.sh it tried to require it, but this was disable-able.) However, of course if you want to use the GUI you'll need it, like you said!
I can login okay and everything runs as normal, also Yt, so far (just command line). Is there any way the origin of this quirk can effect Yt? I'm searching forums for my and tracing the problem on my system but just wondering if anyone more familiar with the Yt interface might know off-hand.
Nope, it should be totally fine -- from my own googling, which I suspect mirrors yours, this seems to be localized to the installation of gdm themes, which govern the login screen. Yt should be immune to this.
Give a shot at running the GUI, "reason", and let us know if it works?

Ahh, I see! I think one of the issues we've had in the past with Ubuntu is that the -dev packages need to be installed for the installation script to run. I'm going to (this week) take a look at a fresh Ubuntu install to see which specific package names need to be installed to avoid having to run the installation script at all, and I will post some instructions on the Wiki about this. One should be able to get everything other than yt itself just from apt-get.
Good luck, and let us know if 'reason' works or not!
