Yeah, you can translate to German if you'd like. Thanks for asking. But please put a link here to the site when you're done with the translation. I'd love to know that resource is available.
I regret to say, that I lack of a webhoster myself, Aysiu...
Would yours allow for an embedded translated webpage of similar appearance of your own?
Well, if you maybe know someone, let me know
I could ask at the german ubuntu forum, but I don't think they'd do it by themselves...
I wanted to know how to get from a well-worn Kubuntu setup to a nice clean Ubuntu setup and found the answer at http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/puregnome - thanks!
However, when I booted into Kubuntu, even though I selected a console login, when it came to remove kdm, the kubuntu splash appeared and then reverted to a blank screen. I couldn't get back to the console view. I ended up doing Alt-PrtSc-SUB to restart.
Then I booted with an Ubuntu Live CD, opened a console window, mounted the hard disk, did chroot and carried on. It would have been better to do that in the first place - might be worth pointing out on your howto?
I have an update to give on this tutorial:
When attempting this with my Intrepid install (I'm preparing to downgrade back to Hardy) I couldn't complete this command:
$find . -depth -print0 | cpio –null –sparse -pvd /mnt/newhome/
even when starting it as "sudo" - I always got permission errors.
My solution, which I suggest be added to the tutorial, is to start the command line process by becoming su, which requires creating a password for su while booted into the live CD. The first command after re-partitioning should therefore be:
$sudo passwd root
then enter a short password like "god"
Now every command is done as super user by default, and the large copy command will work. This shortens all of the mounting and mkdir commands as well because "sudo" is assumed.

Ubuntu 8.04 64-bit (Fluxbox primarily)
I think that command is an old way of doing things. I've written my own tutorial, and linked to the other tutorials that I worked off of. You can see my work here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Pa...ng/Home/Moving
Secondly Hooya, there is no need to set the root password. You can just run: sudo su. Also, purposely setting the root password to a very weak password seems like a bad idea.
There is a quicker way to uninstall Ubuntufox and replace it with the Mozilla one: uninstall the Ubufox extension.
A comment was made, that the instructions to get back to a pure Gnome from KDE are outdated. If you're not already aware of this, you can find the conversation here:
