I have installed on my pc Ubuntu 10.10 and Edubuntu 11.04 in a USB. I had a problem with the installation of Edubuntu so I had to install ubuntu 10.10.
I want to install the desktop and all programs in Ubuntu. How I can do it?
If you open the Ubuntu Software Centre and type edubuntu into the search field one of the top results will be the Educational Desktop for Ubuntu, installing that will provide all the Edubuntu software.
On that same page of results you will also see the individual bundles of software for pre-school upwards allowing you to install a specific set if you do not want to download everything from pre-school to third level (handy if on a slow internet connection).
Edubuntu, the desktop environment specially suited for schools and school students can be installed along your existing desktop environment. You can search it in the Software Center as mentioned above or also do it from the Ubuntu Apps webpage. Make sure you select Ubuntu (maverick) from the right-hand side under "Available Options"
Alternatively, you could also install the desktop environment from your terminal (*Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal *) using this command -
sudo apt-get install edubuntu-desktop The edubuntu-desktop is a metapackage, meaning it holds links to the other packages that need to be installed to get the Edubuntu desktop environment. In short you could think of it like pointers or shortcut icons on your desktop. So when you say install the edubuntu-desktop metapackage, it'll install all the programs and stuff that constitute the edubuntu desktop environment.
Once that is installed, in any of the two above methods, the desktop environment should be selectable from the login page.
