Ubuntu Studio

Has anyone used this?
It looks good to me, I might consider dual booting, but its a big download and it could take me days...if I can download it, I have a limit of 1.2 gigs, its a bit vague on the actual size...of course you COULD always send me a disk Mr. Green .
PM me for details Wink .

But back to the topic, are the tools in this useful and is the OS good in general, I like Ubuntu.
friuser
how is it vague? It is a torrent file and lists 867.53mb.

sounds like you will have no problem downloading it but probably won't fit on a cd.

no i have not installed it still using v6. seeya

Wow. I was just checking out the UbuntuStudio. It looks pretty slick. I think this will be the next distro that I try.

I just recieve the new Version on Ubuntu CD and just installed it on dual boot along with my windows XP on my laptop. it was a smooth installation actually and I I found this ubuntu 7.04 feistyrific. now, my question is, how does that differ from the ubuntu studio that you are refering to here? hmm... just wondering.

Ubuntu Studio comes with a few extra programmings for design, like Inkscape, Blender and stuff like that.

Its just Ubuntu with some other software bundled in for developers and designers. If you've already got an Ubuntu Feisty install disc then its nothing that you can't install yourself after the fact. just install blender, gimpshop, inkscape and your good to go with your own ubuntu studio.

Yeah, it's all ubuntu...

Bit like edubuntu, which is an educational release. Stil just ubuntu with more educational software preinstalled. Oh and it's not a life disk. That's about all.

And I totally agree with you... feisty rules Wink

lol, I just found out about Ubuntu Studio earlier today then I noticed this thread.

It looks quite impressive graphically. I'm already running Feisty, so I won't bother installing it, though. However, for multimedia people without any pre-installed Ubuntu setup I think it's a great distro. Very Happy

I'm pretty new to Ubuntu (1 and 1/2 months) and I know I have a bunch of cluttered files that I have created by experimenting and trying to get used to it! So, my plan is to uninstall it and re-install one of the Ubuntu derivitaves. Now what I am wondering is, which one should I re-install? I have just good ol' Ubuntu 7.04 feisty (I love it) now. I have downloaded "Ubuntu studio" and "Kubuntu". Can anyone clarify the difference between the "Gnome" desktop (which I am currently using) and the "K" desktop environments. Out of the three which should i install?

Also has any one tried "Linux Mint" another ubuntu/debian derivative?? It looks cool Let me know if any one has tried it.

Finally, is there a way to load all three an a dvd and just choose which one to install??? Also, can you dual-boot two ubuntu/linux OSes?

Thank anyone in advance Very Happy

KDE v/s GNOME is purely a matter of choice. Changes from individual to individual. Even XFCE is nice if you want something lighter.

If you install kubuntu-desktop meta package to ubuntu then you can have ubuntu and kubuntu in the same install. Conversely, you can add ubuntu-desktop meta package to Kubuntu to have kubuntu and ubuntu in the same install.
Whereas ubuntu studio should come with whereas extras, i am not aware which ones, those can be easily added via synaptic/adept package manager.
Go for ones like ubuntu studio, linux mint, ubuntu ultimate edition and such if you are either short on bandwidth or on patience to install those extra apps.

It would be better to do it as I described above than to dual boot both. One install is always better IMO.

Ok thanks that clarifies things a bit, while we are on the subject I have a question about partitioning:

I have a dual boot ubuntu/win xp and I want to get rid of the win xp partition completely. Is it possible to get the space that the winxp partition is taking up and make my hard drive whole againwith my already installed ubuntu?

In other words, can i get rid of xp on 40gb of my 80gb hard drive, and make the existing 40gb ubuntu 80gb without having to reinstall ubuntu?

if you know where there is a specific tutorial on this subject then that would help, otherwise any help is greatly appreciated!

Install gparted or qtparted, they are GUI partitioning tools. Unmount the windows partition and format them. If you will be using that partition solely for linux than format it to ext3 or something. But, if you are going to share it with windows then format it as fat32 or ntfs. I would suggest latter cos ntfs write support in linux is much better now.
After that just give it some mount point. I think you can do it from system=>administration=>disks

Ok, I erased the windows partition and formatted it as ext3. Now it hasonly a lost and found and it says that i do not have permission to write to it! Also when I boot it says that the windows partition is still there?!?! Question
Studio Madcrow
A live version of this would be cool, but as it is, I don't find it too useful at all. It's just a version of ubuntu that includes some common creativity programs "on disk" instead of having you get them through synaptic.

Ubuntu Studio is a multimedia editing/creation flavor of Ubuntu, not a graphic design flavor. It includes more audio editing tools such as Ardour and the like, and is an effort mainly for linux audio workstations.

There used to be a similar distro called Fervent Software's Studio to Go, based probably on Planet CCRMA's low-latency audio-specialist kernel for Fedora Core.

See http://planetccrma.stanford.edu.

You will have to make changes to your fstab file. If the partition is listed as /dev/hda3 then my fstab entry will go something like this

Code:

/dev/hda3   /mnt/partition   ext3   auto, user   0 0

Assuming, there's a partition named /mnt/partiition, you can give any name and mount it anywhere you like.

the studio version look amazing. I think this is my next distro

What is the incentive? Is it really worth the time to install a stripped-down version of Feisty with media-centric apps installed? It's not that hard to use the Synaptic manager, and you get the real Ubuntu when you do it right.

I see this as utterly pointless. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't think so.

Doesn't it have a low latency kernel, which is needed for media-centric functions? Yeah ofcourse one can recompile the kernel in feisty for low latency but that'd be too much work for many. And is also good for people who mostly work with audio and don't have such a nice net connection.
