    Upgrade

    Hi group,

    I've an Acer Aspire netbook which I believe is currently running UNR 9.04
    I believe that there is a LTS release available but can't find an obvious way to upgrade.
    Any suggestions,

    No matter how hard I try,
    I can't get most things working most of the time?

    If you are running 9.04 then my recommendation is to back up your data and do a fresh reinstall of 12.04 LTS. (But test-drive the Live CD first.) There have been massive changes to Ubuntu in the past 3 years.

    Re: Upgrade

    you can upgrade by many ways, but there are some rules:
    - upgrading is available from previous to next, and from LTS to Lts
    - by the commanf: sudo do-upgrade -p
    - or by changing the release into sources.list : gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    - or by doing a fresh install : formatting / only and re-using /home & /swap

    I think I'll opt for the new install.

    I was using Ubuntu Netbook Remix.
    Do I just need the standard Ubuntu now?

    Ubuntu Netbook no longer exists as a separate entity; the current Unity interface is designed to work equally well on netbook, desktop, laptop, tablet, etc.

    Also there are Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu (different desktop environments).
