I installed tails on a USB and everything was great but when I tried to browse the web, I get it is anonymous but it makes it slower than normal to load websites or videos online. The point is I want to run Ubuntu live on ram but also with persistent live and to be able to install new apps. I also already tried installing it on a USB but it takes too long to boot up and it is so slow. Somebody help.
3Does this answer your question? Can I boot a Live USB fully to RAM, allowing me to remove the disk? and How is it easier to make a persistent live drive with Ubuntu 19.10?– karelOct 2, 2020 at 5:27
You can boot a live Ubuntu system to RAM with the boot option
toram, but if you want persistence, the partition for persistence cannot be in RAM. It will still be quite responsive (after a slow start).
I suggest that you use mkusb (mkusb-dus) in order to create a system, that can run either as a 'standard' persistent live system or 'to RAM'.

I tried this but it just showed Try Ubuntu and Install Ubuntu when I boot it up. Trying it again tho, thanks for answering. Oct 2, 2020 at 9:48
This kinda worked but how do I install programs on it permanently. Oct 2, 2020 at 10:02
1Did you select 'Persistent live' in mkusb-dus? In that case there should be several options (not only Try Ubuntu and Install Ubuntu). Or did you use mkusb-plug, which is a simpler method? I'd recommend mkusb-dus in this case. -- When you have booted into a persistent live session, you install program packages like you would do into an installed Ubuntu system:
sudo add-apt-repository universe;
sudo apt update;
sudo apt install program-package-name(for example with a small program package for the tool
sudo apt install htop). The package may have another name than the program.– sudodusOct 2, 2020 at 10:55
1Thanks for helping, I tried installing another program and it worked perfectly and is persistent. Thank y'all. Oct 2, 2020 at 12:25
