    i think what you have written in red is not correct. as far as i know the dvd contains only extra languages.

    I'm not 100% certain, but the last I'd heard, the CD usually contains only one version of Ubuntu (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu) and is either the Desktop CD, the Alternate CD, or the Server CD. The DVD contains the entire Main and Restricted repositories (read more about Main and Restricted here), which means it has Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Edubuntu, allowing you to install any or all four versions without needing an internet connection.

    From that page
    Don't be confused, even though DVDs can hold far more data than the typical Ubuntu CD, the main benefit of the DVD downloads is to get access to all of the available language packs. Most people will be fine with the standard CD installer.
    It doesn't say the DVD contains only Ubuntu and additional language packs. It says the additional language packs are the main benefit of the DVD download.

    I know at one time the DVD did contain the entire main and restricted repositories. Can you verify that that has changed? And by verify I mean you actually have the DVD contents in front of you and not an inference from the website description.

    Even if what I wrote is still true, it would be only the Main and Restricted repositories, not the complete repositories (complete would include Universe and Multiverse as well).

    By the way, I've added a Thunderbird page similar to the Firefox one:
    http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/thunderbird

    I just tested it using a live CD. Seems to work. If anyone else wants to test it, let me know if there any problems.

    The Psychocats site is a great site for new users to explore. It uses a combination of terminal commands and screenshot-heavy point-and-click tutorials to help get you up and running with Ubuntu, and it addresses many common questions and problems newcomers have when starting with Ubuntu.

    Psychocats isn't intended to compete with other documentation sites. Its goal is to give a uniform look and feel for several key tutorials and, more importantly, not to overwhelm or confuse new users with too many tutorials in hard-to-find places. Each tutorial addresses a common Ubuntu question, and all the internal links are on the sidebar.

    If you're interested in a more comprehensive set of tutorials, especially ones aimed at advanced or intermediate use (or just anything not covered on my site--for example, how to use ndiswrapper), you may want to check out the Tutorials & Tips section of these forums,the official community-maintained documentation.

    or For Other Users:
    Thank you for all your help so far!




    Users on these forums have caught typos and other errors and kept me abreast of changes in versions of software I don't use (e.g. Songbird). Some users have even contributed whole paragraphs to the Psychocats tutorials, and I've tried to credit them appropriately.

    Working with Psychocats:
    I've had numerous requests asking if people can link to or translate the Psychocats Ubuntu website. The answer is yes. You can link to Psychocats without asking my permission. If you want to translate Psychocats Ubuntu, you may do that as well (please let me know, though--I'm just curious to know what's going on), and I encourage spreading the knowledge. I haven't officially licensed the documentation, but the closest I've found to what I'd say embodies the spirit with which I'm giving Psychocats Ubuntu to the community is the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 license . If you would like to mirror Psychocats, you may do so, but please send me a link to the mirrored site, so I can know to refer people there also.

    Future Updates and Feedback:
    If you have any constructive criticism, please leave it in this thread. I'll be checking back from time to time. I devote a lot of time to the Ubuntu community and to these forums, especially, but this is not my main job. So go ahead and leave any suggestions you may have, but I may not get around to implementing them right away (or at all, depending on how good the suggestion is).

    If the Psychocats website has helped you, you can post that here, too. It's always good to know what people have found helpful, and which pages are most frequently used by people.




















    OMG!!! your site looks amazing Please make this a sticky!
    thankz

    I'm glad you like the site. It is mentioned in and linked to in one of the Absolute Beginner stickies.

    Unfortunately, I don't think stickies get read as often as they should.

    New Note 67

    As a nubuntie, I use this excellent site a lot

    I have one suggestion. There are some tutorials that I find by following a link from another site. For example, I found the Flash installation tutorial from google.

    I think I may have had a similar experience recently (as a nubuntie I seem to have visited all Ubuntu pages on the internet!) So when I arrived at the good Flash page, I immediately asked myself, "How could I have found this page from within this site?"

    When I visit the home page, there is no mention of Flash in the left menu. The word "Flash" is in the text about one-third down the page, but there is no link from that word.

    It seems to me that the only method is to google:

    flash site:www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/

    The only problem is that the left menu is so comprehensive that new users might assume that the entire tutorial contents are in that menu, and therefore might assume that there is no flash tutorial

    So after all the whinging, thanks for the great site
    .

    Good catch. I think there was a reason I took it off, but I can't remember what that was. It's back now.
