Ubuntu + Kubuntu = Linux at its best

Posted on July 29, 2007. Filed under: computers |

…So, After working in ubuntu and kubuntu separately for over a month. I suddenly realised, What if I’ve both ubuntu and kubuntu as a single OS?That is GNOME and KDE with the same installation. After googling for sometime, I figured out that it’s possible..

In this installation, I presume that you have installed Ubuntu first..

Using Synaptic:

  • Search for kubuntu-Desktop in your package manager.
  • Mark for installation and apply all the changes.

Using Shell:


sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

Well Now, Everytime you login..You have the option of choosing your desktop environment(GNOME or KDE). It’s not yet over, You can even install Edubuntu too.So now, you can very well access all the applications of Ubuntu and Kubuntu at the same time…Once Linus Torvalds said “GNOME treats their users as fools”. So, What can he say now? Nothing but “brilliant“.

That is real good news ..
You know what my Linux is Buried in my hard Disk after I installed windows .The Boot loader is gone .Though I figured out a way to install the the boot loader .I am feeling lazy to do that .

Yeah.. It’s a real great news.. I always wondered to have ‘GNOME and KDE’ as one..

Yea.. It’s quite difficult to have linux and windows in a single system.. Always, It gives some trouble.. Especially with boot loaders.
