View Full Version : [all variants] Upgrading/transfering between versions

June 22nd, 2008, 01:25 AM
Is it possible to transfer between the different versions of ubuntu? I am relativley new to linux and I dont really know which one is right for me so I'm just wondering if I decide to try out one of the other versions do I have to uninstall the one I am already running or completly install the new one while leaving the old one there by having a tri boot as I am leaving vista on for now and all I need/want is a dual boot.

If you mean kubuntu, xubuntu, edubuntu, then just install the desktop metapackages and select one at login:

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop


But if you want to try the 64-bit ubuntu, you would have to do a separate install (different architecture)
