View Full Version : [other] Ubunto to studio upgrade

November 22nd, 2008, 09:46 PM
Hello all,

Wanting to install ubuntu studio but having no dvd writer i've followed the advice in this previous thresd:


I installed ubuntu 8.10 (very easily). However on inputing command

sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-desktop

i get message

E: Couldn't find package ubuntustudio-desktop

searched synaptic and couldn't find any mention of studio

is this a temporary problem or have i installed the wrong desktop to upgrade this way?

P.S. sorry if this isn't the right catagory

Whoops, should have searched a bit better, if anyone else has the same problems this thread did the trick for me:

Search ubuntustudio as one word in synaptic. I recieved this advice in a post. I have not had a chance to try it. Hope it helps

Thanks, that is good advice. I found studio and the audio packages through browsing the metapackages on synaptic. long winded but i got there in the end.
