Upgrade from Edubuntu Breezy to Dapper

Filed under
Ubuntu

Instead of doing a preferred clean install as i usually do, while browsing the kubuntu website i noticed it's possible to do an upgrade and it didn't seem complicated and time consuming.

This article is based on my Edubuntu desktop/workstation/server, which i call Brid. This was initially Edubuntu based on Ubuntu Breezy with added DEs and WMs Kubuntu, Fluxbox, Xfce, and E17. I patiently waited for Dapper to get updates to programs like School/Schoolbell. I was smitten by Edubuntu because of its tools for education environments focus and have been using it as a Desktop/Workstation/Server since it came out.

This is what happened.

Full Story.
