It could well be the name of some person who is a ubuntu fan... its very common for people to assume titles like samurai, ninja, guru, alpha-geek...etc.

IMHO, the thread should preferably be in general discussion forum...

Well then, there really is an Ubuntu Samurai after all!
As the page on SourceForge says, it is a specialized live CD "focused on web application testing". So it is not intended to be a home desktop operating system like some of the other Ubuntu derivatives are, for example: Mint, Mythbuntu, Ubuntu Studio, and Crunchbang.

Ok so its like that , so it mean it doesnt have any organisation to take care of , is it like that ? For Ubuntu , Fedora they are having their own group of people licensed under canonical .

Any way thanks for info

No, it doesn't have the support of ubuntu, etc
officially

but it looks sharp to me

I slid that baby on my 2gb fat32 usb and made a casper-rw (800mb)
and then booted it up
and was to the gnome desktop pretty quick with some cool samurai
graphics too

I then transferred it to my ext3/fat32 4gb grub usb
the default wallpaper sucked so I went got one for it
Bushido Samurai Ubutnu!
yeah, notice the "FEDORA" icon
that's my 4gb ext3 usb with like 10 distro's on it

OH!
the user is "samurai"
and the password is "samurai" too

it doesn't tell you that anywhere at the site(s)
I just kept guesiing till i hit it

here's the /etc/apy/sources.list

Is that the default /etc/apt/sources.list? Or did you add the Jaunty repos to it? The reason I ask is because I noticed that the cdrom source at the top of your sources.list (which is commented out like it should be after an Ubuntu install) says Hardy, but the rest of your sources say Jaunty. You also have a commented out backports repo for Hardy.

Did you run:
Code:
# apt-get update
before you searched for software?
I don't know if Samurai uses sudo or a proper root account like Debian does. You may need sudo.
LXDE is available in the Jaunty repos on my system.

EDIT: Since Samurai is (according to the SourceForge page in the link provide by the OP):
Quote:
... a LiveCD focused on web application testing.
You may not be able to install extra software since it is intended to be used as a live CD. I had a quick look at the project's home page, but there is very little documentation available:

Thanks for answering

it's actually, I gotta say, the fastest web-browsing Ubuntu I have used
off my ext3 usb, bar none

they have stripped it of cups, and alot of other stuff, which is good.
it has alot of web related gadgets, server stuff tto
When I went to turn off any unnecessary services
I noticed it had 3 mysql databases running + apache2 + ssh
so I turned those offf too.


I was able to get flash10, and the synaptic is like sparse?!

To answer your questions:

YES, that is the default apt sources.list
weird isn't it?

There's gotta be a way to install new software right?

How are they blocking access to the repos even though the apt sources.list
is uncommented??

WAIT, WAIT
I'm so dumb

of course, apt-get update
apt-get install lxde!

your right!
Oh, and yes it uses sudo su, just like ubuntu.
user is "samurai"
password "samurai"

I even got it on autologin so it gets to desktop in like 1min+ from usb 2.0

OK, it says lxde is now installed
so we'll see....

Oh Boy !! Seems everyone interested . My first impression was while starting this thread , it would be a chaos .
Now it looks good , in future can we see any one starting a new Distro sub forum named Ubuntu Samurai ?
