Installing Ubuntu Studio

Now it’s time to install Ubuntu Studio. Click the Start button to begin.

You’ll probably be given a ‘warning’ that explains how to change the cursor and keyboard focus from the virtual machine to Windows. By default, use the right control (ctrl) key. Click OK.

Watch as VirtualBox loads Ubuntu Studio…

Click inside the VirtualBox window, make sure that Install Ubuntu Studio is highlighted, and hit Enter on your keyboard.

Use the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to select your language, and hit Enter when you’ve made your choice.

Again, use the up and down arrow keys to select your Country, and hit Enter to continue.

Use the left and right arrow keys to select Yes to auto-detect your keyboard layout. As always, hit Enter to continue.

You’ll be prompted to press one of several keys on your keyboard. Click the appropriate key.

Similar to the previous step, click the appropriate key on your keyboard.

Use the left and right arrow keys to select Yes or No regarding the keys on your keyboard. Hint: if you’re using a US keyboard, select No. You’ll be prompted to repeat this step with various “keys” a number of times. Again, if you’re using a US keyboard, select No every time.

Assuming Ubuntu detected the correct keyboard, make sure Continue is selected and hit Enter

Watch as Ubuntu detects your hardware

and loads additional components…

and configures your network.

Now enter a Hostname for your virtual machine. As usual, a short but descriptive name is a good idea.

Once again Ubuntu will detect your hardware.

Then it will start the partitioner.

Select Guided - use entire disk and hit Enter.

Hit Enter again.

Watch as the partitioning finishes up.

Select Yes and then hit - you guessed it - Enter.

Your newly created virtual partitions will be formatted.

Use the up and down arrow keys to select your time zone. Hit Enter when you’ve selected the appropriate one.

Select Yes, hit Enter.

Enter your name and hit Enter.

Select a user name. This is the login/user name that you’ll use in Ubuntu. Note that user names can contain numbers (though it can’t start with one), and all letters must be lower case.

Enter the password you want to use to login to Ubuntu.

Re-enter the password.

Ubuntu Studio will begin installing the base system. Go grab a cup of coffee. This will take a while.

Review the packages that Ubuntu Studio can install.

Select the packages you wish to have installed. Use the up and down arrow keys to move through the list, and use the Space Bar to select a package. Hit Enter after you’ve selected the packages you want installed.

Grab yourself another cup of coffee. Again, this can take quite a while, but it depends on how many of the software packages you opted to install.

Now you’ll select the resolutions you want available to Ubuntu studio.

Use the up and down arrow keys to navigate through the list, and the Space Bar to select them. Keep in mind - if your video card and monitor don’t support a specific resolution, don’t select it.

Watch as more software is installed.

And finally, it’s done. Ignore the message about removing media from your CD-ROM, but if you have a floppy in your floppy drive, take it out. Select Continue and hit Enter.

Watch as the pretty Ubuntu Studio boot screen loads.

Enter your user name and hit Enter.

Enter your password and hit Enter.

To enter Full Screen mode, select VM from the top menu, and then Fullscreen Mode from the drop-down list. The first time you enter fullscreen mode, you’ll be given a ‘warning’ that explains how to exit and return to ‘windowed’ view.

Ta-da! Have fun with Ubuntu Studio

Tidying up (adding sound and a CD/DVD-ROM)

After you’ve powered Ubuntu Studio off, select Settings from the top menu.

Select the Audio entry from the left navigation. Place a check in the box labeled Enable Audio, and choose Windows DirectSound from the drop-down list.

Next select CD/DVD-ROM from the left navigation, and change the Mount CD/DVD Drive from ISO Image File to Host CD/DVD Drive.

The next time you start Ubuntu Studio, sound should work and you’ll have access to your CD/DVD-ROM
