Is WUBI freely available? I checked the link to download WUBI and the only way to proceed is by giving some amount as donation. I will surely do it, but I don't have a Paypal account and I am in urgent need to install Ubuntu. Can someone help me?
A bug was introduced on April 10th when we released changes to the Ubuntu.com download section, which both hid the "skip" link on the Wubi contributions page, forcing you through Paypal, and broke the Wubi thank-you page so even if you did pay the download wouldn't start - pretty catastrophic. This is what led to the confusion.
I've now redirected the Wubi contribute URL directly to the download.
Now if you click "Get the installer" on the Windows Installer page, your Wubi download will start immediately, so you never see the contributions page and don't even have the option to pay.
I've answered and closed @JorgeCastro's bug.
There is a skip option if you don't want to donate.
Apparently the skip button is not showing on the Wubi download page, possibly a bug as other download pages have the skip option.
You can download it from the 12.04 page
However, please remember:
- WUBI was dropped after 12.10, so no support will be available.
- WUBI doesn't support UEFI / win 8.
I've just downloaded it from this link:
It should work
