    HOWTO: Install gOS on Ubuntu

    Only available for x86 based systems.

    Open your sources.list

    Ubuntu
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    Kubuntu
    Code:
    kdesu kate /etc/apt/sources.list
    Xubuntu
    Code:
    gksu mousepad /etc/apt/sources.list
    Enter these lines
    Code:
    # gOS Repositories
    deb http://packages.thinkgos.com/gos/ painful main
    deb-src http://packages.thinkgos.com/gos/ painful main
    Import the key
    Code:
    wget http://www.thinkgos.com/files/gos_repo_key.asc
    sudo apt-key add gos_repo_key.asc
    rm gos_repo_key.asc
    sudo aptitude update
    Install
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install greenos-desktop xorg
    NOTE: I used aptitude, because if you don't like it and want to get rid of it, just run

    Code:
    sudo aptitude remove greenos-desktop
    It will then remove the entire Environment for you.

    You can use apt-get autoremove to do the same thing, so there is really no need for aptitude anymore.

    aptitude IMHO is easier to type than apt-get.

    haha, and I believe that aptitude will also get rid of the dependencies automatically unlike apt-get
    Screw the fact that it's taking 35% of my CPU power, and that it's drinks my battery power like a thirsty bedouin, that's what eyecandy is all about

    As stated above, apt-get autoremove will also remove the dependencies, but typing aptitude vs. apt-get autoremove is not a very difficult decision...

    Huh. Looks like we have to wait a little longer. The repository is currently unavailable according to Google Groups:
