Howto Turn Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) into Ubuntu Studio
Our aim is to make it more accessible for new users to get into the tools that GNU/Linux has to offer for multimedia creation/production. We also want to spotlight what's out there. Show users tools they might not have known existed
Install Ubuntu Studio in Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon)
sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-desktop ubuntustudio-gdm-theme ubuntustudio-audio ubuntustudio-audio-plugins ubuntustudio-default-settings ubuntustudio-icon-theme ubuntustudiolauncher ubuntustudio-graphics ubuntustudio-look ubuntustudio-menu ubuntustudio-screensaver ubuntustudio-sounds ubuntustudio-wallpapers ubuntustudio-video usplash-theme-ubuntustudio ubuntustudio-theme
That should install all the Ubuntu Studio packages and their dependencies. (ubuntustudio-desktop removes ubuntu-desktop as a dependency) If you do not have the required packages they depend on, just allow apt to install them. Now for the removing of the regular Ubuntu components.
sudo apt-get remove gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks gutsy-wallpapers human-theme ubuntu-artwork ubuntu-minimal usplash-theme-ubuntu
After finishing installation you need to reboot your system and now you have ubuntu studio in you system
Hey, thanks a lot for the great help on updating to Ubuntu Studio… it’s greatly appreciated!
I am sorry to say, but this actually broke my system on a hp pavilion.
after installing ubuntu studio I lost my display and the wifi.
I could reinstall linux-restricted-modules in order to get the video card to work again, but even though I could see the wifi restricted driver installed I haven’t found a way to make it work. I give up finally.
I had Ubuntu Studio and it was kind of a pain… It came with way more apps than I’d ever use. Instead of downloading the whole package, I’d rather just get access to the repositories, then pick and choose which apps I want. Also, Ubuntu Studio doesn’t play nicely with OpenGEU (I went into dependency hell).
Ubuntu Studio should probably be broken up into different packages: one for video, one for music, and one for graphic design
Just my two cents…
That’s nice, because Ubuntu Studio isn’t great with my audio and wireless, Ubuntu is, so I’m going to install Ubuntu and make it Studio without removing anything. Thanks!
