I'm wondering if it's possible for me to get rid of the pop-ups on my screen asking if I want to install Ubuntu. (I'm using a USB drive) And so I can basically carry around a flash drive to be used as a computer.

I think the best move would be to just install Ubuntu onto a flash drive from another bootable flash drive as it the second, the target of the the installation were an ordinary hard drive. Of course, there may be problems with hardware-specific settings. I have a 32GB flash drive here. I'll try it and see how it works. – Marc Jul 9 '13 at 16:07

I think it should be sufficient to uninstall ubiquity, but I'm not sure. You can try it and if it doesn't work, just reinstall it. :)
