    Change session and ubuntu environment

    Can I create another Ubuntu session with the Edubuntu environment? Just to keep things separated, work from personal. Including the programs

    Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 @ 2.00GHz
    4 GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM 1066MHz
    Intel Integrated Graphics X4500

    Edit: Yes but they won't be separate. All applications and files would be available from either session. (mis-read) Dual booting would separate them, but you would have to reboot.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install edubuntu-desktop

    Thanks, but turns out it happened exactly what I didn't wanted to happen, I didn't wanted edubuntu software on my main session, but only on the new one, now I have even the edubuntu logo on the task bar instead of the ubuntu logo.

    If you want to get back to pure ubuntu, look here.

    *Note this is for 12.10. If your using 12.04, follow the link on that page.
    **Just noticed there isn't an Edubuntu removal command for 12.04.

    To get what you want I think you may have to dual boot.

    I realized that but kind of wanted to avoid it... well there's the new version coming up, might as well do it all together , thanks anyway.

    Reload with Ubuntu, and then use a VM with Edubuntu for the kids...

    I think this command should work to get your ubuntu desktop back:

    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
    As for the edubuntu session, it uses Unity, so you can just install the Edubuntu educational packages from the Ubuntu Software Centre and create a new user account for personal use. However, you will probably still be able to access your programs from another user account.
