    something odd


    Yesterday, I tried to install chbg (a background desktop image program) which didn't install properly but didn't mess up my system. But now, on boot-up, it says I'm running edubuntu (which I didn't install). Is this normal?
    I'm using ubuntu 6.06

    You might check what are "chbg" dependencies and which ones are related to edubuntu :
    Code:
    apt-cache show chbg | grep -i depends

    thanks

    Thanks for the advice. It says No packages found. Since things are working ok, I won't worry about it. Good to know how to find depends of packages.
    Thanks again.

    Then the package name may differ a little. Try
    Code:
    apt-cache search chbg
    to know the exact name of it.

    And then you can view the details like that :
    Code:
    apt-cache show package_name
    You can do the same in Synaptic too, see the help for more details.

    All is good then.

    all is no longer well

    Last night I did an apt-get to install kubuntu. It reconfigured everything, including my user names and password. After playing with the menus, I looked up password recovery/resetting. I realised it would be faster to just install something else. I now use DSL 2.2.
    Having a few distros around has it's advantages.
