    Can I convert ubuntu to edbuntu?

    I already have a copy of Ubuntu Hardy alternative installer.

    Is there a way to download (using aptitude) the Edbuntu desktop like you can for xubuntu and kubunntu?

    This would be a better alternative for me than downloading the whole iso.

    Install the edubuntu-desktop package:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install edubuntu-desktop
    I do not use Ubuntu any more, nor have I ever used Gnome. Therefore, I tend to give advice that is distro- and DE-agnostic, which, while perhaps not the easiest way, will allow you to move freely between machines.

    Thanks I tried that yesterday and it did not work. It works today though.

    Also I find if you download the edbuntu cd you after installing Ubuntu you can then use the synaptic to install edbuntu.
