If you've installed Ubuntu (or Kubuntu or Xubuntu or Edubuntu or Gobuntu) and are wondering what those other desktops are like, there's an easy way to find out. No, I don't mean download, burn and boot the respective CDs. I mean just add 'em to your current configuration.
Open up your package manager (System / Admin / Synaptic Package Manager in Ubuntu or KMenu then System Tools / Adept Manager in Kubuntu) and do a search for "-desktop" (without the quotes). Or if you prefer using the command line choose one of the following...
apt-get install edubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install gobuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
Or if you want to add more than one, just chain all together like this...
|sudo apt-get install edubuntu-desktop gobuntu-desktop|
Once installed, log out of your current desktop, hit Alt-T to select the desired Session Type at the login screen, and choose from one of the new alternatives.
