May 7th, 2011, 09:21 PM
Hello, I have installed ubuntu 11.04, kubuntu 11.04 and ubuntu 10.04 in my pc, they are installed in differents partitions but share the /home directory... I was asking if I can share applications between these distros because I have for example google chrome on ubunu 10.04 and I want it in ubuntu 11.04 without downloading it. Thank you.

To do what you are asking requires you to download and install in each partition, even though you are using the same /home partition.
Each program/package installs in a /user or /opt directory and therefore it is required to be installed in each OS partition.
