I want to know if the version of ubuntu they recommend is correct and I would also like to know how I should manually divide the hard drive with bootcamp or more specifically how much should I parition for ubuntu? The swap space etc...
I can't burn the amd64 8.04 version of ubuntu's iso onto a cd -r with mac os x. I tried to with disk utility and burn osx. It says that there is a medium write error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Medium write error... that sounds like a bad cd or at least one that doesn't like your burner. It is unlikely that the iso itself is to blame - it's just a bunch of data.
By the way, remember that you have to burn the iso as an image, not as simple data. Not that making that mistake would cause medium errors; it would only make your burned cd useless as an installer.
Does anyone know a site that has different applications for ubuntu that allow me to change the shape of the desktop when I am changing it. I am tired of a square. I don't know what they are called. Applications or add-ons?
