    Question Ubuntu Studio on a Machine without DVD-drive ?

    Ola bothers and sisters,

    Can you install Ubuntu Studio on a Machine without DVD-drive?
    I only found the DVD-iso-Image; is there a (or several) installation-CDs? What will I do, if my Laptop only got a CD-drive?

    Thanks,
    Alexander

    Hey, Alexander,

    I would suggest using Unetbootin or USB-creator to install the live DVD on a USB drive (assuming you have one/some). Besides not requiring a CD/DVD drive, USB installation is also faster. I usually install from USB regardless of whether the machine has a CD drive.

    Good luck!

    You can use Keryx to download your .debs with dependencies from any OS!

    You can just add the apps you need to an install done from a CD iso, less bloat that way. If you are unsure what to add, there will be a meta-package for the ubuntu studio collection in the repositories. I have pretty good luck starting with a barebones linux, only installing what I actually use.
    Cheers
