View Full Version : [SOLVED] Upgradation from Regular version to Netbook Remix

September 14th, 2010, 04:39 PM
Hey everyone,

I have a Netbook Samsung N148 and since the day I bought it i had installed Ubuntu in it, not knowing then that a special version of Ubuntu for Netbooks existed (for smaller screens and Atom processors). Now with Ubuntu 10.10 coming in with Unity i really want to upgrade into Netbook edition.

I currently have 10.04 (regular one) installed, and when the 10.10 releases I want it Upgraded it to Netbook version. I read on Wikipedia that this is possible so you can save all the hassle of making a fresh Install & copying files and all, but i really don't know how. I know the regular command for distribution upgrade but that would not get me the Netbook version.

Please Help. Awaiting for the final release of 10.10....):P

The only difference is the "launcher" interface instead of the standard Gnome desktop. You can install the launcher by installing the ubuntu-netbook package, then selecting it from Sessions on your login screen.

I have heard 10.10 will bring some changes to the launcher interface...

ps All recent Ubuntu versions have excellent support for the Atom processor, so that should not influence your decision.
