how to upgrade by using Xubuntu ISO (xubuntu-8.04-desktop-i386.iso) image.

sudo apt-cdrom add
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

sudo apt-cdrom add
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

My combo cd drive is not working properly, how to use with USB pen drive?

Maybe you could mount the ISO

then follow vor's instructions

i have mounted ISO image into /media/cdrom

then i executed the command "sudo apt-cdrom add"

it asks to insert the cdrom.

how to use this "apt" command to add our mounted path ?

If you know where the USB drive is mounted, you could try:

sudo apt-cdrom -d=/place/where/usb/drive/is/mounted

I have no idea if that will work but, it's worth a try.

hi vor, thanks for your input.

but it is not worked.

any other way to upgrade XFCE environment on ubuntu? without using internet connection.

You could try extracting the .iso to "/var/cache/apt/archives" and then running:

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

No guarantees that this will work though...
