Add xfce or KDE Desktop environment to ubuntu

November 28, 2010

Hi all,

If you want to add xfce/KDE desktop environment to your Ubuntu(Gnome), that can be done  using following steps-

1. Go to System->Administration->Synaptic Package Manager.

2. Click search and write xubuntu-desktop/kubuntu-desktop and search.

3. Check Mark for installation and then click Apply

This will install xubuntu-desktop/kubuntu-desktop to your Ubuntu system.

To login to xfce or KDE environment change the session on the main Log-on screen.

I have three desktop environments(Gnome(default), xfce and KDE) on my Ubuntu 8.04 system.

Enjoy all environment. 🙂

Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat releasing on 10/10/10

October 9, 2010

Hi all,

The new version of Ubuntu is going to be released on October 10, 2010 (10/10/10) by Canonical Ltd. The Ubuntu 10.10 version which has been named Maverick Meerkat has a lot of features. As the version number signifies, hope that it comes out to be 10 out of 10. If you want to know Technical overview of this version of Ubuntu, you can find it here.

If you want to download Ubuntu, you can download from the Ubuntu website here. Or you can request Ubuntu CD from here.

I think this version of Ubuntu will attract more users to migrate from other OSs to Linux. Hope you all who have not used Linux before will try this and enjoy the experience.

The next version of Ubuntu is coming soon
