Adventures in a New Ubuntu 6.10 Clean Install

Filed under
Ubuntu

This will be a series of posts called the Adventures in a New Ubuntu 6.10 Clean Install. I will document my entire experience in preparing for a re-installation of Ubuntu from 6.06.1 to Ubuntu 6.10 with a format.

Best way to download Ubuntu

Now that Ubuntu 6.10 was released today, I was finally able to start getting my system back up and running in a dual-boot configuration with Windows XP Professional.

I opted to download the i386 ISO image using the available torrents since it would be the fastest way to download it. It only took about 45 minutes to download at varying speeds.

Before I continue my installation anecdote, I must explain my computer configuration…

Ubuntu

On Friday the new versions of Ubuntu and their related projects came out. So on Saturday Hubby and I went to task updating to Edgy Eft, but instead of installing Kubuntu we decided this time to go for Ubuntu. The main difference as far as I’m concerned is that Ubuntu uses the Gnome desktop environment and Kubuntu uses K.

I’d gotten quite used to K but the obvious benefit of having Gnome is getting XGL to work! Well, some of the things needed to run XGL are incompatible with the most up-to-date drivers so we’ll just have to wait until they’re updated. Now my task is to find my way around Gnome.

It took me a good while to figure out themes; you can apply different window borders, application themes and icons and then save them together as one theme. I couldn’t find one complete them that I was satisfied with, actually I couldn’t find any application themes that I was satisfied with, the windows and icons weren’t too hard. Gnome Art has some sweet downloads; the only problem I had with the many application themes is that, you’ll notice, I have transparent panels at the top and bottom of my screen, many of the themes were fine in every respect except not respecting that transparency so that the menus in the top left were still solid gray - ugly!

Linux Ubuntu Dapper to Edgy - no problem

I upgraded my Ubuntu 6.06 install to the new Edgy soon after it’s release using the simple command gksu "update-manager -c". Several hours later, and after clicking on a few dialog boxes to update files in /etc/, I’m not running Ubuntu Edgy on my desktop box.
