Ubuntu vs. Kubuntu vs. Xubuntu vs. Edubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 6, 2011
I have a big question:
I've been hearing a lot about other types of Ubuntu.
E.g. Ubuntu (itself), Xubuntu, etc.
But What is the point? Why not just use the original. I've tried Kubuntu and find that the only reasonable replacement. And that is just to have Ubuntu slow but look pretty. Is there any other use of Kubuntu? And what are the perks to Xubuntu and Edbuntu ? I mean what's the point of Xubuntu ? And how is Edbuntu suited to educational purposes?
Hello again, World!
I'd appreciate any kind of feedback.
Crunchbang + Firefox = Blurry fonts?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 13, 2009
I've been using Crunchbang for a little while, and I've started to notice that I'm actually having to squint to see the text on every site (as well as the text used in the menus). What's weird is that these same sites look great in Ubuntu (I can actually see them and what not), but for whatever reason all of the text is blurry in crunchbang. Any ideas/suggestions?
xlsfonts cant see fonts that chkfontpath has listed
- date: November 28, 2012
Hi, I asked this in the CentOS forums but didnt get a reply, so ill try here:
Recently one of my apps started complaining it couldnt find the 6x10 font it used by default. I started poking around and saw that no apps could see the font, and then noticed they couldnt see most of my other fonts either. These fonts listed by xlsfonts are the only ones the system can see, but chkfontpath lists folders that have tons of fonts in them.
These are the font folders:
Those folders have tons of fonts in them. Ive restarted x
edubuntu vs ubuntu

hey all, what is the difference between ubuntu (11.04) and edubuntu (11.04)? i was going through the software centre looking for educational material, upon restarting my machine, i noticed the appearance changed and it says edubuntu instead of ubuntu.
I then google it and heard it was the version used for class room stuff, so can someone explain to me the differences? because it mostly seems the same to me, but just to clarify in case of tears that may later be shed as a result of this >_<
thanks for any help
Ubuntu vs. Edubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 12, 2010
I have a new family desktop pc on the way and I would like to repurpose our current desktop as a pc dedicated to my young offspring.
I think Ubuntu and possibly Edubuntu is the way to go, considering all of the free educational software available. I am totally new to Ubuntu and pretty much a Linux n00b altogether. I installed RedHat once for a sys admin class years ago, and that's all I've ever done with it.
I'm not sure if I should install Ubuntu and install Edubuntu's apps on it, or go all the way and install the Edubuntu platform over Ubuntu? I've had a hard time googling the web for reasons why a parent might want to install full Edubuntu instead of just installing the Edubuntu apps on an Ubuntu machine.
My 4 year old son will be the primary user, for now, and he's very technically apt. I don't have any worries about him navigating the menus or shortcuts (or whatever Ubuntu's equivalent to shortcuts are) between the environments. I am mostly interested in knowing if there are

Edubuntu desktop vs Ubuntu educational bundles
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 6, 2013
My five year old son loves playing with Ubuntu and can navigate around 12.04 pretty well. I understand there is an education derivative edubuntu and I also see there are educational bundles for download.
What are the pros and cons for each?
Edubuntu vs regular Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 1, 2008
I am setting up a computer lab for a small private school, consisting of 14 computers plus a file server. The file server has a super old version of Debian which I plan to upgrade to 8.04 Server Editon, but what exactly is Edubuntu? I was planning on just installing Ubuntu to everything, but apparently Edubuntu is "designed for schools". Can someone tell me how Edubuntu is different that Ubuntu aside from graphics and maybe bundled programs?
Need to made a decision by Thursday.
edubuntu or ubuntu server?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 21, 2010
Hi folks. I am looking to set up a thin client server for my business. It will be small (~15 workstations) and the requirements are very modest (mostly web browsing). Looking at edubuntu, I see it comes setup and preconfigured with some features I was expecting to use, like ltsp, dhcp, menu editors/thin client management gui tools, gnome nanny, etc. In general its feature set seems very useful. However, I would like this server to have maximum longevity, since it will probably remain unchanged for the forseeable future once it's properly configured. I was originally considering installing ubuntu server 10.04 because of the long-term support promise of five years. I have had some trouble locating more documentation relating to edubuntu's integration with ubuntu updates and its support into the future on any given version. Does anybody have any input that could inform me to make the right decision? Thanks in advance!
Difference between Ubuntu and Edubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 7, 2010
What is the difference between Ubuntu and Edubuntu? I am looking at replacing the Mac OSX 10.3 on my sons eMac with Linux. If there are advantages to Edubuntu I would go that route but if it is just software I think I'd prefer to using Mint 8 and add that software.
His Mac has a 1ghz G4 processor with 512mb of ram.
