Install/ Upgrade

Installing the release: 0.3.0 "Centaurus":

This is a more practical, usable, stable, and complete system.  While it has improved in stability, it can probably be used on production machines even though we don't yet recommend it. 

If you have the UGR GNOME 3 PPA installed (ppa:ubuntugnometeam/gnome3), please replace it with the GNOME 3 team's PPA below

If you a viewing a translated version of this page, the commands below will be incorrect.  View the english version for the correct commands.  

If you already have installed UGR 0.0.1, please see the special instructions below

This is intended to be installed on a fresh install of the latest natty. DO NOT install this on a production machine, THERE IS NO DOWNGRADE PATH. THIS HAS NO WARRANTY, AND IT COULD SERIOUSLY MESS THINGS UP.  

1) Obtain a clean, fresh installation of the latest 11.04 Natty Narwhal Release.  Perform all applicable updates.  

2) Configure the system to NOT login automatically.  This is needed so that you can choose what kind of session you want.  If you do not do this, you will still be stuck with unity.  This can be changed under system>preferences>login screen.  

3a) Easy option: download this shell script to your home folder and run it. 

3b) Accept all the yes/no prompts, by typing 'y' (without quotes). Skip to step 5


3b) Add the UGR Repositories:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntugnometeam/ppa-gen
sudo apt-get update

4) Install UGR (only if you used option 3b)
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install ugr-desktop-g3
sudo apt-get upgrade

5) Reboot.  You should see "GNOME shell" as a session option in the login screen.  Gnome shell is GNOME 3.  The Ubuntu Classic sessions provide a fallback to an original GNOME interface. 

If UGR 0.0.2 - 0.2.0 is installed
You should not have any major problems upgrading. 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

If UGR 0.0.1 is installed
Installing 0.1.1 will not work if you already have the original UGR installed, as there is a package conflict. To solve this, run the following to get UGR 0.1.0:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get remove ugr-desktop-g3
sudo apt-get remove gnome-accessibility-themes
sudo apt-get install ugr-desktop-g3

Providing Feedback
Your feedback is essential to this project.  Join the ugr-testing team on launchpad, and file bug reports for any problems you notice.  Most bugs should be filed with the ugr-meta package.  

Things we want to know:
  • Does everything work?  Try each session type: Ubuntu (unity), Ubuntu classic (no unity), and GNOME 3.  Check the features in GNOME 3 against 
  • Is it stable?  Can you do work with it?  
  • Are there any broken packages?  These are listed as 'not upgraded' in apt-get, and are grayed out in update manager
