Install “ubuntu netbook remix” menu in hardy heron
Ubuntu recently brought out a special distro aimed at the new netbook market.
The distro isn’t downloadable, but is available for OEM’s.
Fortunately you can use the netbook remix repo to install some of the things the “ubuntu netbook remix” offers.
The eye-catching menu for one.
To install it, open up synaptic (system -> preferences -> synaptic package manager). Select “settings -> repositories”. In the “third party software” tab, press “add”.
Copy/paste this line:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/netbook-remix-team/ubuntu hardy main
After that, press the “reload” button in synaptic. It’s in the left top corner of the screen.
Then press the “search” button and look for “ume-launcher”.
Install the package.
You can launch it by pressing “alt + f2” and entering “ume-launcher”.
It’s best to disable compiz fusion (press alt+f2 and enter “metacity –replace”, note that — is two – -).
You could add the “ume-launcher” command in “system -> preferences -> sessions” in the command box, so it starts when you boot up the pc.
