    Regarding your page on iTunes:

    http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/itunes

    What about running iTunes in a virtualized version of Windows or OS X, with something like VMware or VirtualBox? I realize this is not for the faint of heart. But hypothetically speaking, wouldn't it allow you to have iTunes effectively running within a window in your Ubuntu system? So then you wouldn't have to dual-boot. That might be a solution for someone who really wants to have access to the iTunes download services.

    I think I've already mentioned that:
    If you must run iTunes, your best bet is a dual boot. This means you have to reboot your computer every time you want to access iTunes and then reboot your computer again if you want to use Ubuntu. Two slightly more convenient variations of this are running virtual Ubuntu inside Windows using VMWare (or running virtual Windows inside Ubuntu using VMWare) or having two computers and a KVM switch that allows you to quickly switch back and forth between Windows and Ubuntu using the same monitor and keyboard.

    All of those are workarounds.

    Hi Aysiu,

    I successfully created a separate Home partition following your tutorial.
    I had to use sudo find at the back-up and move stage, but apart from that everything worked for me. Very clear and easy to follow.

    I'll be checking out your Back-up tutorial next.

    Thanks, much appreciated from a noob like me.

    Re: Psychocats Tutorials Updates

    Hi,

    thank you for that. Found a dead link so:

    What other Ubuntu resources are there?
    I'd highly recommend these links:
    The Ubuntu Forums
    Ubuntu Knowledge
    The Ubuntu Guide


    Here the "Ubuntu Knowledge" Link goes nowhere.

    You might want to revisit that one.

    Greetings

    Yeah, the link looks dead. That's a shame. I've taken it out now.

    Re: Psychocats Tutorials Updates

    Hello aysiu! On this page here, I think it might be easier if you used aptitude to remove the desktops. It would work no matter what version you were running too.
    Code:
    sudo aptitude remove kubuntu-desktop
    You probably know this WAY better than me, but that would work because aptitude can keep track of metapackages and remove them without trouble.

    Just thought I'd pass that along. Thanks for the great site!

    On my old pages, I used to recommend aptitude, but it works only if you used aptitude to install the package in the first place, and aptitude can also be funkily over-aggressive in removing packages and remove too much; so I took it out. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    Re: Psychocats Tutorials Updates

    Hello Aysiu,

    I have recently installed the Kubuntu desktop in Ubuntu as per your instructions. One of the points you make is that the applications menus become infested with the programs from the alternate desktop. I have recently come across an article in Softpedia which has an idea to tidy that up.

    http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-t...0-106118.shtml

    If you scroll towards the end of the article it recommends a couple of little programs which sorts this out by putting all the KDE or Gnome launchers (depending on which desktop you are using) together in one sub menu. I have tried them, they work well and it makes the applications menu much tidier.

    The article also suggests using Startupmanager to enable you to change the splashscreen back to Ubuntu (is you wish), as installing the KDE desktop overwrites the Ubuntu splashscreen.

    Hope this helps.

    Now - this is a neat old trick indeed!!

    Thank you!
