View Full Version : [ubuntu] Netbook edition with desktop edition

October 26th, 2010, 02:55 PM
I have been setting up a box now and have it configured with everything I need and is running great:)

I would like to test out the netbook remix edition is there a way to install the desktop environment along site with Gnome (like I use to do with KDE)

Would be great so I wouldn't have to re-configure drivers and such.
To be able to switch from Gnome environment to Netbook remix environment.

I am running Ubuntu 10.04.
