Running WinMD5Free v1.20 said it's not matching current 8d8413fe8d7ca81bdab86180e8d5386e

What is the checksum value for kubuntu-16.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso?


1 Answer 1


I don't know much about WinMD5Free v1.20 but Ubuntu flavoured linux come with the md5sum command to check these things. To check please do:

md5sum  kubuntu-16.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso

Then compare it to the official MD5SUM here

I ran mine on md5sum kubuntu-17.04-desktop-amd64.iso and it corresponded with that found here

Since your testing it on Windows use the CertUtil inbuilt tool like so:

CertUtil -hashfile C:\TEMP\MyDataFile.iso MD5
