Installing Kubuntu - a video tour

Author: Robin ' Roblimo' Miller

Ready to try Linux but want some hand-holding when you do? Here are three videos that walk you through the process of installing Kubuntu, the KDE-based version of Ubuntu.

The first video shows how Kubuntu looks running directly from live CD, and gives you a brief look at the software included on the CD. Video number two steps you through the process of installing Kubuntu to your hard drive, and video number shows you how to install and remove software in Kubuntu.

This Kubuntu video tour is the first of a series. In coming weeks and months we'll do similar tours of other popular GNU/Linux distributions, plus video tours and tutorials for many popular Linux applications.

These little Linux.com video distro tours are not intended to be comprehensive tutorials. They're here to give you an idea of the look and feel of various popular Linux distributions to help you select the one you like best.

We now make all Linux.com videos available in both Flash and Ogg Theora formats. They are distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 License, so you may download and share them, and even translate them into other languages (for non-commercial purposes) if you like.
