Kubuntu 6.06 or Ubuntu 6.10


I have these two discs.I know that Ubuntu has only GNOME as its graphic manager and that Kubuntu has only KDE as its graphic manager.

I've got Kubuntu 6.06 and Ubuntu 6.10. Is there anyway I could take the Kubuntu's KDE from the older version (6.06) and use it on Ubuntu 6.10?

After you install Ubuntu, set up the respritories, and install any other software you like. That includes KDE on Ubuntu, if you want it, or Gnome on Kubuntu. I have installed KDE on a Ubuntu system and it worked just fine.

Use Synaptic the package manager to install everything. You should be good to go.

Why not installing Kubuntu 6.10 if your aim is using Ubuntu Edgy Eft with a KDE desktop environment?

The Kubuntu 6.10 iso only takes about 30min to download on a high speed connection.

Download it, burn it, problem solved.

Or with the Ubuntu 6.10, in the terminal, do:
sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop

The free CDs supplied by Ubuntu, according to their website, are that of version 6.06. However, they sent me Kubuntu 6.06 and Ubuntu 6.10

What will this command do? Will it connect to some server, download, and install the package? I have a slow internet connection.

I just want to know if I can install Ubuntu 6.10 and rip the KDE from the Kubuntu 6.06 disc.

The Command mentioned by BrianL, will download the KDE desktop. If you're on a slow connection, it will take a while.

As for ripping KDE from the 6.06 CD, Its possible, but I'd say unlikely, especially since you're using two different "versions"... If you were using Kubuntu 6.10, it would probably be quite possible(of course, there wouldn't be a need for this question then).

Maybe someone who knows 100% wether this can be done or not will chime in.

You can always buy a CD/DVD from numerous places.

Ok, I'll install Ubuntu first, and see what I can do. One problem though, when I start my computer with my Ubuntu disc in, it does not run, but displays Grub instead. How do I install Ubuntu.

1 of 2 things.

1. The disk wasn't burned properly or is bad, thus why its not loading.

2. Your Bios is not set to boot the CD/DVD drive first.

Number two you can fix by adjusting your bios. I'm assuming it booted your Kubuntu CD fine, so thats probably not it.

Followed my own advice last night with Xubuntu 6.10. Worked out OK (for a change!).

Thanks IGF, option 2 did the trick. I'm currently typing this from my Ubuntu.
