Aloha! Many of you may know or have seen for yourself that the only difference between Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and other *buntus is the software and appearance. You may have wondered "Can I just convert one *buntu to another?". Guess what, you can! For example, the only main differences between Ubuntu and Xubuntu is the software installed and the appearance of the system. To convert any form of Ubuntu to Xubuntu, type the command below in a terminal. Code: sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop Then, uninstall any software that is not in an official installation of Xubuntu. For instance, when converting from Kubuntu to Xubuntu, uninstall KDE and related software (unless you wish to keep them). Some other conversion commands are below. Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop Kubuntu: sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop Xubuntu: sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop Lubuntu: sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop Ubuntu GNOME: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop NOTE ON THE INTERFACES: Ubuntu = Unity; Kubuntu = KDE; Xubuntu = XFCE; Lubuntu = LXDE; Ubuntu GNOME = GNOME To undo the distro conversion, reinstall the applications you may have installed and then type Code: sudo apt-get purge *ubuntu-desktop Replace the "*" with the appropriate letter to uninstall the added software used to convert the system. Such software removal can be cleaned up the following way. Code: sudo apt-get autoremove --purge Feel free to post some topics you would like me to write about.
