View Full Version : [ubuntu] Converting Ubuntu to Kubuntu

May 4th, 2011, 10:53 PM
I knew I shouldn't have done the upgrade to 11.04; but I did it anyway.

I've given Unity some time and I just don't care for it. I have over 100 apps on this thing, why do I want to sift through an almost android-style unstructured menu just to find them, esp when my only other option is to search and half the time I don't remember the literal name well enough to get the search-fu right.

So my question is:

Is "sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop" equivalent to dropping a kubuntu dvd drive in and doing a new install (short of the obvious part where I get to keep my previously installed applications and data)?

I just want to do a conversion of the existing install from ubuntu to kubuntu and get some distance between myself and this unity thing.
