Ubuntu Netbook Remix - Short review Updated: October 7, 2009 Ubuntu comes in many flavors, the namesake running Gnome desktop, Kubuntu running KDE, Xubuntu running Xfce, Lubuntu running LXDE, and a few more. All of these editions are aimed at the average desktop user and his/her average computer. But what about netbook users? They get Ubuntu Netbook Remix edition. Ubuntu Netbook Remix joins Moblin as a lightweight, optimized solution for the Atom-based netbooks, while offering the usual stability and friendliness of the Ubuntu family. In this short review, we'll see what Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) has to offer. We're not going to do all of the complicated stuff that we normally do, as it's absolutely identical to stock Ubuntu. From Wireless to Multimedia, it's Ubuntu all over. The major difference is in the desktop layout and the performance on low-end modern processors. Get UNR UNR is available for download from the official Ubuntu website. Unlike the other releases, it does not come as an. iso image but rather an file. This may confuse some of you. Indeed, getting UNR ready for use is slightly different from the typical Linux distribution, so let's spare a few moments and see how you can have UNR booted on your machine. Write image to USB drive After you have downloaded the file, you will have to copy it, bit-by-bit to a bootable external device. Standard USB thumb drives are ideal for this task. Copying images can be done using the dd command - or much simpler - using the ImageWriter utility, which can be found in the Ubuntu repositories. After you launch the utility, simply choose the image you want to burn and the destination device. You will be warned: Please be careful when choosing the destination device. Make sure you have chosen the right one, as it will be irreparably overwritten. I recommend you check the size and the contents of the destination device before running the operation. Boot UNR I do not possess a netbook with an Atom processor, so I had to do with my standard T61, now healed of its Wireless woes after the casing replacement, and my brand new RD510. UNR booted in about 2 minutes from the Kingston 16GB flash drive into a live session that will not be kept between reboots. Like the standard Ubuntu, you will have to install UNR. Overall, the behavior was ok, if a bit sluggish, with a rather unusually high CPU utilization. This is probably due to the fact the I was running UNR on non-optimized processors. This was true for both laptop models. Desktop UNR desktop has a very unique, very interesting look. The choice of colors is Ubuntu, with browns and oranges, with a darker, more somber scheme that the original. What makes the biggest difference is the layout, which takes some time getting used. On the left side, there's the Gnome menu, with combined Applications and System listed down, with the focus on the former. On the right side, there's the Places menu, listed down, with quick access to various locations, including the network and other drives/partitions. Mounted devices have a bright icon, while the unused once are shaded with gray. The center pane is a sort of a Favorites menu, where the most used applications are sorted, allowing instant access to favorite programs. The basic collection includes the web browser, email client, instant messenger, and surprisingly, a Web camera utility, the superb Cheese Webcam Booth, which is not a default application on stock Ubuntu. The top panel remains, but it is limited to showing the list open programs and the standard system area, populated with Wireless, Bluetooth, Battery level, and other icons. Applications Clicking on the categories in the left column, you get the standard Ubuntu collection. You have the OpenOffice suite, Totem, Rhythmbox, GIMP, and other programs you're used to from the stock release. Likewise, expanding the Administration section, you have everything you would expect to find on Ubuntu live CD, including GParted (Partition Editor) Hardware Drivers, and other utilities. As always, installing new programs is dead easy with Synaptic. You won't get codecs for proprietary formats out of the box, but you will be able to download and install them the first time you try to play a file in one of these formats, like MP3, for instance. Similarly, Flash is not available by default, but you can install it either manually or via the Medibuntu repository. Conclusion Not too much of a review, I admit, but it still has a few decent screenshots and gives you a good idea of what you should expect from UNR. First and foremost, there won't be any bad surprises. UNR is Ubuntu and it will be nice, comfortable, friendly, and simple to use. You will have to do all the usual stuff you would do on Ubuntu - configure additional repositories for proprietary software, install codecs, install Flash, possibly install a few extra programs like MPlayer, VLC, Opera, and some others. But everything works, from Wireless via Samba sharing to installing drivers for your graphics card using the Hardware Drivers utility. The one thing that stood out on the negative side was the performance. But do remember that I tried UNR on a notebook and not a netbook, therefore my impressions regarding the performance are irrelevant. I was forced to test the product in non-optimal conditions - and it shows. As such, I can only advise that you stick to default Ubuntu editions if you're planning on running it on a desktop or a laptop. Keep UNR for netbooks with Atom processors. It's the only way to gain from the optimization. Overall, UNR is a solid product. It's Ubuntu, dedicated for the low-end market, which should definitely appeal to people with tight budgets, especially in bad financial times. Likewise, it should work faster and more smoothly than Windows installations on similar platforms, while offering a rich, useful experience. If you have a netbook and do not care for a sub-optimal Windows installation and do not wish to wait for Moblin to come out of Beta, Ubuntu Netbook Remix seems like a good idea. I believe you will like the result. The combination of free price, lots of good programs, stability, usability, and decent looks are really hard to beat. P. S. UNR 9. 10 is coming soon, so stay tuned! Cheers.

Ubuntu Netbook Edition (UNE) is a derivative of Ubuntu that is made specifically for use on netbooks. Installation can be done using a USB drive. UNE sports a simplified user interface that is optimized for smaller screens. Ubuntu's initial netbook offering was call Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) and is still commonly referred to as UNR. As of of the 10. 04 (Lucid Lynx) release, UNR has been rebranded as Ubuntu Netbook Edition to reflect its official status and maturity. Will my netbook work with UNE? For a list of netbook models that have been tested with Ubuntu Netbook Edition and/or Ubuntu please see the Hardware Support page. Note that currently this list is for version 9. 10 (Karmic Koala.

For the past 2 days I had been playing around with installing the new Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9. 10 OS and getting the Broadcom BCM 4312 based wireless working on the Lenovo S10-2 netbook. After several tries, I finally worked out a procedure on getting this combo to work. There are 2 scenarios - installing from a USB stick and installing from an external CD or DVD drive. There are slight differences between these two. Anyway, there are bound to be users of the Lenovo S10-2 out there that wants to try out the new UNR 9. 10. To save them some frustration (and from uttering some swear words - satisfying but unproductive. I will now list out the steps required for the installation. The first part is installing from a USB stick and the second part (which will be in a forthcoming blog post) will be installing from an external CD or DVD drive. How to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9. 10 on the Lenovo S10-2 Ideapad Netbook from a USB Drive and get the Broadcom wireless to work. Author: Ridzwan Abdullah (ridz1a_AT_yahoo_DOT_com) Last Updated: 13th November 2009 This howto is for guiding users who wants to install the Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9. 10 (codenamed Karmic Kaola) onto their Lenovo S10-2 Ideapad netbook as well as getting the Broadcom chipset-based wireless on the netbook to work. This version of the howto assumes you already have a bootable USB stick containing the Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9. 10 (henceforth referred to as UNR. For those who does not have this item, visit the Ubuntu web site. and download the iso image of the UNR, and then use the image to create the bootable USB stick using an available PC. The instructions on how to do this can be found at. Note that, instead of a USB stick, you can also use an SD or SDHC flash drive as the boot device (via the Lenovo S10-2 built-in memeory card slot. The instructions for creating such a device is the same as for a USB stick. This version also assumes that UNR is the only OS you plan to install on your S10-2 netbook. If you have just installed a new (blank) hard disk into your netbook, then you are set to start installing the UNR. If an OS is already present on the hard disk in your netbook (for example, Windows XP Home) and you want the ability to dual-boot, then you need to refer to instructions how to dual-boot (not covered in this howto. Should you wish to wipe the current OS from the hard disk before installation, then you need make sure to delete all partitions and reset the MBR on the hard disk. Use an available PC to do this - there are lots of free utilities that allow you to do this. You can also wipe the hard disk using the 'cfdisk' or 'fdisk' utility found on the UNR - run the "Live CD" to access this utility. One last assumption is that internet connection is via wireless NOT through a wired LAN. The majority of people who buys a netbook is for reason of portability, i. e., not tied down to a wired LAN for internet connection. Here are the steps required to install the Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9. 10: 1) Make sure that the S10-2 netbook is powered off. Unplug any ethernet network cable from the netbook (this howto assumes that you do not have internet access via an LAN but through a wireless AP. Plug the bootable USB stick into any of the 3 available USB ports and power up the netbook. 2) The netbook will automatically boot up from the USB stick - you do not have to press any keys during boot. The first screen that appears is where you choose the installation language. Select one and press Enter. On the Ubuntu Installation Menu that appears next, select the item "Install Ubuntu Netbook Remix" and press Enter. The installer will then start loading - wait until the first installation screen (the Welcome screen) appears. Do not be alarmed if you see a blank screen - it is still loading. 3) Follow the 6 steps as shown on the screen and set your choices - language, location, keyboard layout, prepare disk space, enter personal information and lastly, confirm the install using the information that you have provided. When you press the "Install" button on step 6, the installer will begin the process of actually installing UNR on your netbook. With no LAN access to the internet from the netbook, the whole installation will be completed within 7 minutes typically. When completed, a message box will appear to this effect with a "Restart Now" button which you need to click. 4) DO NOT unplug the bootable USB stick. Press F12 after the restart and at the Lenovo screen. Select item 2 IDE 0 (the hard disk) from the Boot Manager and press Enter (the netbook will start from the hard disk. 5) The netbook will now start the newly installed UNR. The GRUB loading message will appear briefly and then UNR will start loading. If you have selected starting with a password during install, then the Login screen will appear. Enter your password and click OK. If you had selected automatic startup during install, then the Login screen will be skipped. The UNR desktop will now appear to the accompaniment of the "startup sound. indicating that the sound hardware on the Lenovo S10-2 netbook is fully working. At this point, there is no internet access. In fact, there is no network connection whatsoever and this can be verified if you hover the cursor over the network icon (between the speaker icon and the battery icon) on the top panel, a message saying "No network connection" will appear. To get the wireless network to work, we need to install some software packages manually. Ubuntu's philosophy forbade them from doing this automatically - as a result, it just makes things harder for the average user. 6) Click on 'Files & Folders' on the left-hand pane. Under the 'Volume' section you should see your USB stick. Click on that and a file browser screen will appear showing all the files on the USB stick. 7) Double-click on the 'pool' folder icon, then the 'main' folder icon and then the 'f' folder icon and lastly the 'fakeroot' folder icon. Only one file. will be present - double-click on this and the Package installer screen will appear. Click on the 'Install Package' button. Enter your password when prompted (you need administrative rights for all the packages to be installed) and click OK. Click the 'Close' button when finished and then close the Package installer and you will be back at the file browser. 8) Go back to the 'main' folder (click on the 'main' tab) and open the 'd' folder, followed by the 'dkms' folder. Double-click on the only file there. to install it via Package manager. After this has been installed, close the Package manager. 9) Go back to the 'main' folder. Open the 'p' folder, followed by the 'patch' folder and then double-click on the only file there. to install it. 10) Go back to the 'pool' folder. Double-click on the 'restricted' folder, the 'b' folder, and the 'bcmwl' folder. After this has been installed, close both the Package manager and the file browser. Note that there should not be any errors in installing all the 4 files mentioned above. If there is, then there is something wrong with the files (corrupted maybe. You need to fix this as these files are important to get wireless working on the netnook. 11) Restart the netbook by clicking on the top right-most icon and selecting 'Restart. Then Click the 'Restart' button on the dialog box that appears and the netbook will restart. Press F12 and boot from the hard disk. Log in and at the UNR desktop, click the network icon and your wireless AP (along with other AP's within range) will appear in a list. To connect to the internet via the wireless just click on your AP, enter the password (if authentication is required) and you will be connected. You can eject and remove the USB stick at this point if you wish. 12) There will be updates available - use the Update Manager to apply the updates. The update manager can be found in 'System' section. Click on the item and when Update Manager screen appears, click the 'Check' button. Enter your password and the process will start. Update manager will refresh the package information from the remote repositories. Once this is finished a list of available updates will be shown. Click on the 'Install Updates' button to start the actual downloading and installation of updates. This may take a while. 13) The Lenovo S10-2 Ideapad netbook is now ready for use, either on your desk at home or on the road. Enjoy. Users of the S10-2 may wonder whether the steps above will work - rest assured that I have tested them out - once on my own netbook and 2 other times on friend's S10-2 netbooks. They all work - so go ahead and try out the new UNR. Stay tuned for the next part...
