UbuntuStudio can be challenging to install for new users. I have found that quite a few users have trouble installing UbuntuStudio from the DVD. This is how to do an alternate installation.
Things you will need:
- Ubuntu Installation CD (from here)
- Internet connection (wired broadband preferred)
- A computer
- Install Ubuntu the normal way. If that doesn't work, use the alternate install method.
- Once you have finished installing Ubuntu, make sure your machine works properly. Reboot the machine to make sure you can login, check your screen resolution, and most importantly make sure your network card works, and that you can connect to the internet. You are using the standard version of Ubuntu, so all of the standard documentation applies.
- Once your machine is configured properly, you can begin installing Ubuntu Studio. To do this in Hardy Heron, open the terminal (applications>accessories>terminal) and enter:
Ubuntu will begin downloading all of the packages for UbuntuStudio. This will take quite a bit of time even on a high speed connection. Once the packages are downloaded, they will be installed automatically. For instructions on other versions of Ubuntu look here.Code:sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install ubuntustudio-desktop ubuntustudio-audio ubuntustudio-audio-plugins ubuntustudio-graphics ubuntustudio-video linux-rt
- Reboot your machine and your installation should be complete.
This same method can be used for installing UbuntuStudio 64-bit. However, in step 1 you should install the 64-bit version of Ubuntu.
If you think UbuntuStudio should be easier to install, vote for my idea on Ubuntu Brainstorm.
