    Ubuntu and Xununtu

    Just wondering could anybody point me in the right direction. My hard drive packed up and had to get a replacement trying to get my old operatin system back just can't remember how to do it. I'm after Ubuntu + Xfce = Xubntu were I had the option off logging in to either one of these desktop environments. So if anybody can point me in the right direction of the commands to excucute this programme from the terminal I would greatly appreciate it.

    Well you could install one from CD/DVD and then add the other using apt-get. For example, if you have installed Ubuntu already then the following will add Xubuntu:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
    Or do the reverse, start with Xubuntu and add Ubuntu-desktop. That will give you both distros.

    If you want only the XFCE desktop environment then that package is xfce4 and xubuntu-desktop is not needed.
