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.

KDE and Akademy

  • Akademy Day 4
    For most of the year, KDE—one of the largest free and open software communities in the world—works online by email, IRC, forums and mailing lists. Akademy provides all KDE contributors the opportunity to meet in person to foster social bonds, work on concrete technology issues, consider new ideas, and reinforce the innovative, dynamic culture of KDE. Akademy brings together artists, designers, developers, translators, users, writers, sponsors and many other types of KDE contributors to celebrate the achievements of the past year and help determine the direction for the next year. Hands-on sessions offer the opportunity for intense work bringing those plans to reality. The KDE Community welcomes companies building on KDE technology, and those that are looking for opportunities.
  • KDE Reveals Plasma Mobile
    There are a lot of interesting developments occurring in the field of Linux smartphones right now. With so many different options popping up, fragmentation is a risk, as apps built on one platform fail to migrate to another. KDE's new offering may help to make those apps available to a broader audience.
