Updating kubuntu to 8 10
First, open the Terminal application and type following two commands (Application Please note that above two commands will fetch files from the Internets or local mirrors.
The location of update pages is specified in /etc/apt/(repositories).
After all, its the distro on which the *ubuntu family was based, so you should feel at home :-) I have to agree.
That's also why I switched my SPARC boxes from Ubuntu Dapper to Debian.
First post here, from a long-time Linux user but new Kubuntu user. So I install 8.04B and it looks good, but the system hangs every time within half an hour. -mike Hello, this is usually the standard procedure with Adept "anomalies" : Type these lines in the console (in this sequence): sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt-get autoclean sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install You might want to try reinstalling Firefox after you've sorted things out with adept.

: Install is followed by one or more packages desired for installation.
If package is already installed it will try to update to latest version.
You need NOT to make any changes to this file until and unless you need extra repositories for your setup.
Type the following apt-get command: in addition to performing the function of upgrade, also intelligently handles changing dependencies with new versions of packages; apt-get has a “smart” conflict resolution system, and it will attempt to upgrade the most important packages at the expense of less important ones if necessary. The /etc/apt/file contains a list of locations from which to retrieve desired package files. It works like Microsoft or Red Hat update manager i.e.Later on if you want to remove KDE, simply run "sudo apt-get remove PACKAGES", where "PACKAGES" is the list of packages that were installed by the "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop" command.After all the packages have been successfully installed, it's probably a good idea to restart the system.The usual objection is that Debian is supposedly "challenging" to install. But thanks to the cross-pollination between it and Ubuntu, Debian's been a breeze to install from Etch on.
