    Question Installing Lubuntu with WUBI

    Is it possible to install Lubuntu with WUBI? I have a low end netbook, so I want a lightweight system that still has all the eyecandy I like. I don't have a free flash drive to burn it to, so the only other solution is WUBI. Is it possible to force WUBI to install Lubuntu?

    No, you can't install lubuntu with wubi.

    And I haven't heard of a plan to include it in Oneiric either (lubuntu becomes an official version of Ubuntu in the upcoming release).

    Well, is there any way to install Lubuntu from Windows without a CD or flash drive?

    No, not that I know of. (apart from a virtual machine, but that's obviously not what you want).

    Install Ubuntu using Wubi, then after it's booted do this:

    Install Lubuntu from Ubuntu or any Ubuntu flavors

    You can install on any installed version of Ubuntu by adding the lubuntu ppa and then installing lubuntu:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lubuntu-desktop/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends lubuntu-desktop
    If you wish to get rid of an existing k/x/ed/ubuntu then head over to Pure LXDE. alter the very end from

    && sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop
    To

    && sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends lubuntu-desktop
