The computer won't boot into Windows. Ahh!! We all know this scenario. When you need it the most, something fails. Maybe he hates you, maybe he is playing a prank on you. So? What is the solution? Breaking the keyboard? Well, no!

The solution is simple! You pop your Live CD into your CD drive. What is a Live CD? It's a whole operating system that can run from your CD, without installation!

With the Live CD you can boot your PC no matter what.

When everything loads, you will have access to some tools to recover your lost data, internet browsers, image manipulating software and so on. Like I said before, an entire operating system on a CD!

If you want to know more of the benefits of a Live CD, I recommend you read this free e-book called 50 Cool Uses For Live CDs.

Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal” has been released bringing the latest Firefox 4.0 as the standard web browser and the updates don't end here.

Unity is now the default Ubuntu desktop session. The Unity launcher has many new features, including drag and drop re-ordering of launcher icons, full keyboard navigation support, launcher activation through keyboard shortcuts, right-click context menu quick-list and switching between running applications.
The Ubuntu One control panel now allows selective syncing, and the launcher icon now displays sync progress. File syncing speed has been improved as well.
The Ubuntu Software Center now allows users to "rate & review" installed applications, share reviews via integration with social networking services added into Gwibber, and has other usability improvements.
GNOME programs now use a new scrollbar which takes less screen space.


Preparing your computer for Ubuntu is now much simpler, with a wider range of disk setup options. Each of these are detailed at length to provide you with a clear understanding of the actions that will take place with your selection.

You can now reinstall or upgrade an existing copy of Ubuntu with the Desktop CD installer, provided that your computer is connected to the Internet.

Download Release

11.04 images can be downloaded from a location near you:
In addition, they can be found at the following links:

System Requirements

The minimum memory requirement for Ubuntu 11.04 is 384 MB of memory for Ubuntu Desktop. Note that some of your system's memory may be unavailable due to being used by the graphics card. If your computer has only the minimum amount of memory, the installation process will take longer than normal; however, it will complete successfully, and the system will perform adequately once installed.
The minimum memory requirement for Ubuntu Server 11.04 is 128 MB of memory.
Systems with less memory may be able to select "Install Ubuntu" from the boot menu to run just the installer, rather than the whole desktop, or may be able to use the alternate install CD.


To upgrade from Ubuntu 10.10 on a desktop system, press Alt+F2, type in "update-manager" (without the quotes), and press Enter. Update Manager will open up and display the message, "New distribution release '11.04' is available." Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.

To upgrade from Ubuntu 10.10 on a server system, install the package update-manager-core if it is not already installed. Then execute the command sudo do-release-upgrade, and follow the on-screen instructions. Note that the server upgrade is now more robust, and thus will utilize GNU screen and automatically re-attach in case unexpected problems arise, e.g. dropped connection problems.
The same instructions apply to all other editions of Ubuntu (such as Kubuntu, Xubuntu, etc.)

Yes, I know... maybe not all of you want to theme your Ubuntu installation with a theme that mimics Mac OS X. This is an article for those that want something new, those who want a small change on their desktop.

What you get in the pack? Theme, Firefox Chrome and ThunderBird Themes, Icons, Cursors, Fonts and not least... the backgrounds.

Here is how to install it, open Terminal and copy-paste each line and press enter:

For 10.04 Lucid Lynx type the following:

wget https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/macbuntu/macbuntu-10.04/v2.2/Macbuntu-10.04.tar.gz -O /tmp/Macbuntu-10.04.tar.gz
tar xzvf /tmp/Macbuntu-10.04.tar.gz -C /tmp
cd /tmp/Macbuntu-10.04/

For 10.10 Maverick Meerkat type the following:

wget https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/macbuntu/macbuntu-10.10/v2.3/Macbuntu-10.10.tar.gz -O /tmp/Macbuntu-10.10.tar.gz
tar xzvf /tmp/Macbuntu-10.10.tar.gz -C /tmp
cd /tmp/Macbuntu-10.10/

If you don't like it, you can always uninstall MacBuntu running the following lines in terminal:
For 10.04 Lucid Lynx type the following:

cd /tmp/Macbuntu-10.04/

For 10.10 Maverick Meerkat type the following:

cd /tmp/Macbuntu-10.10/
Please leave your comments and tell me if you like it or not!

Guess what? It's 10/10/10. Of course we are not dead, daa!! Ok, let's get down to business. The most popular Linux distribution, Ubuntu, got today a new version so called Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat. With a slightly polished look compared with the 10.04 version of Ubuntu, this one makes it the best alternative to Windows and Gates Mac.

You can download Ubuntu for free from here.

The first screenshot comes from our reader Patrick Micka with the message:
Pretty minimalistic setup, that is, no compiz since ATI stopped supporting my graphics card and I'm not ready to shill out for a new one. Simple conky configuration displaying only basic system info as well as current Folding@Home progress so I don't feel bad about leaving my computer on all the time. I use xbindkeys to launch most common programs such as Google Chrome, Inkscape, and Rhythmbox. Elementary theme, Mono-light icons, and a design of mine as the background I like to call "McFly". -Patrick Micka

From Bobby Costigan:

Kenneth Lynch decided to send us 2 screenshots from his Kubuntu 10.4 installation:

From Dalai Ghost Line (link for wallpaper, link 1 link 2 for GTK Themes, link 1 link 2 for AWN dock icons):

From Paul Challoner we got one screenshot with the following message:
This uses the basic Ubuntu theme but with Meliea icons, add some Windows
7 London bridge wallpaper and some Mac-ish HandelGotD font for a nice
clean look. Added some compiz bling to impress the work colleagues.

From fosco222 we got one screenshot with the following message:

GTK Thme: Equinox (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Equinox+GTK+Engine?content=121881)
Icons: Humanity
Player widget: Conky (conkyrc by me)
Dock: Avant Window Navigator

From Bernhard Dr. Danzer we got this screenshot:

Thank you for all of those who sent us pictures of their Ubuntu installation!
We wish you have a nice day!

Firefox will have a nice design for it's next major release, Firefox 4, which is expected to be released at the beginning of the next year. All I can say it's that they did an good job on integrating their browser with the theme of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. Here are some pictures provided by the guys over mozilla.org

So, as you might know Ubuntu is in the final stages of developing the version 10.04 of Ubuntu (called Ubuntu Lucid Lynx) which now comes with a long term support (this means that this version will have updates for years).

What comes with 10.04?
  • latest GNOME desktop environment
  • Mozilla Firefox: Default search engine changed to Yahoo (I hate it!)
  • Linux kernel 2.6.32
  • KDE SC 4.4 (for Kubuntu)
  • HAL removal (helps for faster boot times)
  • Major new version of likewise-open
  • New default open source driver for nVidia hardware
  • Improved support for nVidia proprietary graphics drivers
  • Social from the Start
  • New boot experience
  • New Indicators
  • New Themes
  • Ubuntu One File Syncing
  • and more...

Download: press here
Upgrade from Ubuntu 9.10 on a desktop system, press Alt+F2 and type in "update-manager -d" (without the quotes) into the command box. Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release '10.04' is available. Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.

It finally came the moment! It's 29th of October 2009, the day Ubuntu 9.10 is set to be released. It comes with a faster booting time featuring a smooth graphical interface so newbies don't get scarred of scrolling texts anymore, a new Software Center so you can manage your Applications more easily and a lot more features I will let you to discover for yourself here.

Go and download Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala here.

Also I wanted to give you a heads-up about one community-contributed feature that's new to Ubuntu 9.10: it's the first Ubuntu release that never needs to be rebooted for operating system updates.  The capability isn't yet included in Ubuntu by default (expect that in a future release!), but users can easily enable it by going here.

Reading my Google Reader feed list I came across this great article about how can you manage your iPhone from Ubuntu. They claim that you don't need to jailbreak your iPhone and it will work right away out of the box.

Currently the only method to manage your iPhone files was to jailbrake it and SSH into it. People using an original firmware on their iPhone had two options: either restart and use Windows/Mac OS X or install a virtual machine inside Ubuntu that would emulate a Windows installation.

As you might probably know already the guys over Mozilla Firefox recently released a new version of Firefox. In this short article I will tell you how to install this version of Firefox in a quick and easy way everyone can understand.

First of all, you will need to install UbuntuZilla, this little application will let you upgrade all your Mozilla products to their latest version. To install UbuntuZilla go here and download the .deb file. Once downloaded the file, double-click it and it will install using the graphical way with the use of GDebi Package Installer.

Once installed, go to Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal). Paste the following command:
Follow the on-screen instructions (very easy).
You are now done!
