Hello my Linux Yogi’s
in this illustration I will walk you through the installation of Ubuntu Gnome 16.10 in easy to follow steps. Ubuntu Gnome 16.10 was release in October 2016 and is available as 32 and 64 bit. Download the ISO file from https://ubuntugnome.org/ and burn a DVD with it.
Insert the DVD, boot from it, make your language selection and select “Install Ubuntu Gnome.
I recommend to select both option in order to receive latest updates and hardware support during the installation.
It is also recommended to select “Erase Disk” to install a fresh Ubuntu Gnome installation.
Write all changes back o the disk.
Select your desired Timezone
Select your desired Keyboard Layout
Provide Computer and User information
Now the installation is in progress.
In order to complete the installation the system needs to restart.
Remove the installation Media
After the restart log on to the new installed system.
Now this is special for Ubuntu Gnome. It starts out with a Welcome configuration wizard.
It asks you again to make you choice what keyboard layout you like to use.
Make your privacy selection
Add Online Accounts like Facebook , Google etc.
This concludes the Welcome configuration wizard.
Here again this is another helpful “Getting Started” resource. It offers some Videos and howtos.
Your Desktop provides a Application menu which is names “Activities” here. When you click on it, it provides you Favorite Application to your left and virtual desktops on your right.
After you clicked on the Dotted Icon on bottom left it provides you with all available applications.
On the top right there is the “System Controls” which is combines with Logon/Logoff, Shutdown, Audio Controls and Networking Controls as well as System settings. Play around and you might like this nicely designed desktop environment.
After clicking on the shutdown button you will see the following controls.
This now concludes the installation of Ubuntu Gnome 16.10. As you have seen it is fairly simple to install Ubuntu 16.10. If you liked this illustration or not feel free to leave a comment. If you like to see specific articles use my Contact Form and tell me about it.
