I am installing Kubuntu 12.04 from a usb drive and it is downloading a lot of language packs. My internet speed is too slow and it would take another 45 minutes to install them. The cancel button doesn't seem to work. How can I stop downloading the language packs and complete my installation?

  • You should click the SKIP button not Cancel. Or disconnect from Internet before you begin the installation.

  • @msPeachy - Hi , the skip or cancel button doesn't works while downloading Lang packs, so i asked how to do that.I am afraid that disconnecting may cancel my installation afterwards, thank you for commenting :) ....But isn't the cancel or skip button is expected to move forward without downloding it , is my download OS faulty or software is bugged, or mouse click is faulty somehow ...

  • It should. It will not cancel the installation, if you disconnect before you even begin the installation, that's what I think.

If you still need this, have look at:

Ubuntu installation issue

It's not at all obvious where the skip button is, but this explains it well. And it works!

You can simply disconnect your wifi before you install, then once the install completes run update manager to download all updates etc.
