Hi everyone!


Hi everyone,

a few months back I tried the Fedora Core, but since I use my SonyEricsson K790i as a modem, I could not get it configured to go online, therefore had to switch to Windows again. But now two weeks back I tried Ubuntu and am now totally satisfied with it's connection style, speed and performance.

All through I was a Windows user, but now I just LOVE Linux. Especially in a country like Bangladesh people cannot afford to buy Windows, MS Office or Photoshop - needless to say that the hardware itself is not possible for every citizen. Linux is a blessing for us! I'd like to thank all those, who give their best efforts to bring out something totally free and reliable like this.

I'd like to ask a question though: Is it possible to install Ubuntu Studio if I've already installed Ubuntu 8.04 and run both of them in the same machine?

Thanks and with best regards,
azsarker

Yes. Set up another partition and install Ubuntu Studio to the new partition. Set up grub to dual boot Ubuntu 8.04 and Ubuntu Studio.

As an alternative you could install whatever additional applications Ubuntu Studio has into Ubuntu 8.04.

You can also run Ubuntu or any other operating system in a virtual machine using any of these programs: Virtualbox[suggested], Qemu, or VmWare.

Thanks for your tips, but since I'm absolutely new in Linux, I tried to avoid partitioning for the time-being and preferred to add the applications of UbuntuStudio in Ubuntu 8.04 and am enjoying it.

Last week my SonyEricsson K790i was stolen. I used it for going online as a modem. Since I could not afford to buy another (new) mobile phone, I bought an EDGE modem. Installing this in Ubuntu was a pain, but thankfully I saw one help-tip in the forum, and am now successfully back using the internet.

I have another problem: my tv card is AverMedia Super700 (PCI card). I used it nicely with Windows and don't know how to make it work in Ubuntu. Could someone please help me?

Best Regards,
azsarker
