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

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.

GuardDog capability on Edubuntu vs FireStarter on Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 1, 2008
I am setting up a PC for my son and I just want to enable one website (bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/fun) on his new Hardy Heron Edubuntu system... and yes just downloaded it - got it going - wow how easy! - and it looks just like Ubunto?!! Go figure.
GuardDog does not seem to allow you to create a white list despite it being the utility of choice - so far as I can find to do thing sort of thing. Conversly you can do it on the adult standard Ubuntu so I understand with FireStarter... Something has gone wrong here with who ever decided that. Guess I'll just have to get reading the man pages on ipchains and remind myself how vi works etc..
Can anyone offer any suggestions before I go down this route?
Perhaps an oversight that needs to be corrected for Edubuntu, which is for kids?
Guidance greatfully recieved... as I haven't used Linux for 10 years, and wow how it's improved.
Best wishes, James Usmar
Ubuntu or Edubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 13, 2010
Good morning, gang. I am an educator and an experienced Linux user. I've been using Ubuntu for about a year. I've seen Edubuntu listed in the Synaptic Package Manager. Are there any real advantages to installing Edubuntu directly as opposed to installing it on a system already running Ubuntu? Thanks.
Ubuntu + Kubuntu + Xubuntu + edubuntu + Ubuntu Server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 20, 2006
I have a question. Can I install ubuntu and then install
kubuntu, xubuntu, edubuntu and ubuntu server on top of it?
Please note I don't have a internet connection and I can't use synaptic. I have the CDs for all the above mentioned.
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop ( for kubuntu)
but it tries to connect online and doesn't ask for the CD.
I also tried doing it using synaptic by adding the kubuntu to repositories. But nothing seem to work.
Please point out if I am doing anything wrong.
The settings in synaptic seems to be ok.
Please let me know how I can do it?
Eagerly waiting for a response.
Reinstalled my Ubuntu 5.40.. was greeted with Edubuntu.. WTF?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 13, 2006
After installing my AMD Athlonx XP 3000+, I got a corrupted hard drive. So I reinstalled my Ubuntu 5.40-- I got it from shipit.ubuntu.com/something/something-- things went well, until for some reason I didn't get the right sync rates for my monitor, even though it is the same one as before. I just went into a virtual terminal, /etc/init.d/gdm stop and installed nvidia-glx for I was going to do it anyways. When I restarted my gdm, I was greeted with .. Edubuntu. What in the F**k happened? Something was seriously lost in translation from my Ubuntu 5.40 disk to my harddrive, but how the hell did this happen? Well anyways I'm mingling about my new desktop with the crayon potrait of a girl with the Edubuntu logo on her, and etc. I guess it's not that big of a problem, but my 4 questions are: Will I be effected with my new Edubuntu, and how? Will I be forever stuck in the twilight zone alone with this problem, or have others been here before? If one knows, how did this come about?

Upgrading Edubuntu 7.10 to Hardy Heron
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 6, 2008
I have been using Edubuntu 7.10 for quite some time now and now is the time to upgrade it. I can not use the AptGet or Synaptic Package Manager to upgrade due to bandwidth reservations. As per the latest release announcement of Edubuntu (http://www.edubuntu.org/news/8.04-release), I need to upgrade to Ubuntu 8.04 first and then use Edubuntu Add On CD to install necessary packages. So anyway, I have to upgrade Edubuntu 7.10 to Ubuntu 8.04 to upgrade Edubuntu as a whole.
I already have Ubuntu 8.04 (Thanks to ShipIt) and I tried to upgrade the system by logging in my existing Edubuntu installation and then putting the 8.04 Ubuntu in ROM drive. The new packages were detected without any problem but I go no option to upgrade. The latest installation CD is free from defects which I have already checked.
I can not do a fresh format as that will make me loose all my present settings, which are important for me to retain.
Is there any way to upgrade Edubuntu 7.10 to Ubuntu 8.04
