    How do I copy settings from 7.04 to new 8.04


    I Have installed new 110 Gb drive on ASUS A3A laptop and partitioned it. Hda1=Xp,Hda2=fat32,Hda3=/home,Hda4=logical Hd5,6,7 /boot,/and swap
    Copied across home folder from 7.04 reinstalled ubuntu 8.04 .

    But how do I get my applications running that were running on 7.04 .

    Have original drive as usb drive that is still bootable to 7.04
    Checked all the forums every one says just copy across Home partition .

    BUT HOW DO I GET THEM WORKING AGAIN ? PLEASE SOMEONE

    /home contains user settings and documents only. Applications will need to be re-installed using synaptic package manager or apt-get.

    why don't you just upgrade the distro
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
