How to make Lubuntu work like Ubermix
« on: September 29, 2015, 09:25:49 AM »

I have become admin of my schools computer room.
It's a small lab with about 20 old pc's.
Today I tried installing Ubermix on one of them, and while it worked ok, it did run somewhat slow.
How difficult would it be to set up a lightweight distro like Lubuntu to work like Ubermix does?

Did you try the normal version or the Lite version?
For older computers, you should definitely try using version 2.3L.

If not, I would go a different route, but this is not easy and I would only consider it if your Linux experience is fairly high: make Ubermix look like Lubuntu or Xubuntu (I prefer Xubuntu).
You can do:
apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

Then switch to the Xubuntu session on log-on.
Afterwards you would need to do some cleanup of the standard Ubermix environment to avoid conflicts.

To do this properly, you need to do it with the customizing image instructions of the wiki, and create your own custom Ubermix key.

What do you think? I hope someone else will chip-in as well.
