The CD-ROM does not work. My PC is very old and does not boot through USB.

I want to install Lubuntu through Windows. Wubi does not support Lubuntu (That is what I think).

Is there a program like wubi that can help?

Can you tell me a way to install lubuntu ?

As far as I am aware there is no lubuntu wubi option.

If you want lubuntu - install the wubi for ubuntu.

Once that is installed you can install the lubuntu-desktop package and then remove the ubuntu packages.

Will the experience of Lubuntu be the same as if I installed Lubuntu from scratch ? –  george mano Apr 11 '12 at 0:33

It sounds like[1] Lubuntu will be supported on Wubi in 12.04. If you're willing to wait 2 weeks, that sounds like the easiest solution.

[1] See http://ubuntu-with-wubi.blogspot.com/2012/01/wubi-will-support-lubuntu-in-release.html, http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/01/lubuntu-12-04-news-roundup/, https://bugs.launchpad.net/wubi/+bug/907524/comments/7. Theoretically, you could test a daily build of 12.04 right now if you wanted, though I don't know how stable it would be.


DO NOT INSTALL DAILY/BETA BUILDS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND ARE OK WITH THE IDEA THAT YOUR SYSTEM COULD GO BONKERS OR DATA COULD BE ERASED.

Will it be just an update to switch from Beta Lubuntu to Lubuntu ? –  george mano Apr 11 '12 at 0:38
    
Yes, your beta will turn into release when release gets released. –  zpletan Apr 11 '12 at 0:44
    
no wireless drivers on Lubuntu 12.04! –  george mano Apr 11 '12 at 2:44
    
Try connecting to a non-wireless network and running a program called like "Additional Drivers." –  zpletan Apr 11 '12 at 3:29
