How the fsck do I use this. I can’t click folders or my web browser. This is a good way to drive people away when the damn thing is unusable. And my less than 1yo laptop doesn’t have touchpad support. I hate you more Ubuntu.

If you can’t figure out a simplified interface in Ubuntu 11.04, then you should use Windows 7 or a MAC. Linux is not for you.

Dude,im new to linux and you know how to understand this without getting stressed out? get on google and find forums or ask questions about your problems dude everyone will help you

I agree. I didn’t like.

I was in a machine without linux, so I installed a VM in a dual core and had to wait 30 minutes to open a shell linux. Terrible!

Hi Vivek,

I am trying to install vpn client on my current version of Ubuntu 10.10. I have had much trouble with this. Does the new version available here v11.04 get around this? I essentially need vpn client to ssh to a remote server.

Thanks. Looking forward to your response.


8 TryME May 1, 2011 at 2:02 pm

What kind of VPN client? Is it a pptp or cisco based?


9 Krithika May 1, 2011 at 7:34 pm

cisco based.

what’s the difference between the CD and DVD iso?



14 vamsi May 3, 2011 at 6:36 am

@saborus, I guess CD version will have only basic packages required for home users. However, DVD might have almost all the latest packages available in the repository.


15 Shaun May 3, 2011 at 7:52 am

The DVD ISO will have all the standard Ubuntu packages. The DVD ISO can fit on 1 DVD. The CD ISO can fit on 1 CD for example but will only have the relevant base installation packages.


16 vamsi May 3, 2011 at 6:39 am


Thanks for the info, love to download the dvd version and install in a vmware. Debian is great for me, I hope ubuntu would be good.


17 Ehacking May 17, 2011 at 5:04 am

No words for ubuntu…. its amazing experience to use ubuntu…..


18 basil May 21, 2011 at 2:50 pm

I tried to download the dvd (3.9GB) but it always stuck in the middle. There’s any link to a mirror where I could download it in 4-5 parts instead of only one huge file? My internet connection is too slow.


19 basil May 21, 2011 at 2:55 pm

Please, is there any image of the 3.9 GB dvd split in few parts? I tried but couldn’t download the huge 3.9 in one go, my internet connection is too slow and every time the download fails after 1.5 GB. Any help?

Nice write up.

I have to say, we are getting a lot of requests for this. Personally, I think the LTS is the better option, but the Unity UI is a nice touch, although it’s more like OSX meets Vista.


21 John Cartwright May 24, 2011 at 3:27 pm

The Unity interface takes a bit of getting used to, but it is really not that bad at all. I have gone back to Lubuntu 10.10 though and that is super fast on an i3 system. Worth looking into if your machine is older like a Pentium 4.

25 SlumNinja June 24, 2011 at 5:49 am

What I would like to know is live usb iso. Is it better to stay with 10.10 on a live usb with persistence? or Go 11.04 with persistence?
Im thinking I should stay 10.10 since 11.04 is in beta.


26 abhi August 16, 2011 at 4:21 pm

ubuntu is best…
1- its faster
2- safe
4-easy to use


27 abhi August 16, 2011 at 4:21 pm

i use it on my lapy as well as on my p.c


28 Bill October 27, 2011 at 12:41 am

Totally loved Ubuntu 11.04, it’s performance, intuitivness….total ease of use made me think…..If is was holding Microsoft stock….I would be a little worried. I upgraded to 11.10 and….well….I’m going back to 11.04. From what I see….11.10 is not quite as ready as 11.04 was out the gate. If….IF Ubuntu could auto recognize installed hardware as well as Knoppix….. WOW !


29 volxton December 23, 2011 at 12:57 pm

Can any one pliz help with tutorials of how to use UBUNTU SERVER?


30 Anvay January 3, 2012 at 2:07 pm

32 Bit DVD version (3.9G) Link is broken.


31 JakeDsnake January 17, 2012 at 11:24 pm

is it okay to use bootable USB…? my cdrom is broken…


32 Cameron June 6, 2012 at 5:17 am

This software is great for older out-of-date computers, but to use it for todays windows 7, and macs ect. Its useless, it doesnt include the things you will get through windows seven, and xp as far as udpates, internet options, and downloads. What this program is mainly used for is serving the web, on older machines, but with new machines software.


33 jagadeesh August 28, 2012 at 3:11 am

thanks for giving this link thanks mate ………


34 Tharindu Edirisinghe September 26, 2012 at 11:40 am

Downloading the Ubuntu 11.04 now. I’m moving into Ubuntu from windows and hoping to engage in development with Perl, Shell Scripts and C. Hope Ubuntu will help me.


35 Teklema February 8, 2013 at 2:10 pm
