How to install gOS on Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon


I installed gOS on Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon.
It's nice but I prefer Gnome windows desktop environment.


If you want to install gOS , from terminal do the following (ONE LINE AT A TIME HITTING ENTER AFTER EACH STEP):

  • Adding gOS repositories

    echo "deb http://packages.thinkgos.com/gos/ painful main"\
    | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

    echo "deb-src http://packages.thinkgos.com/gos/ painful main"\
    | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

  • In the terminal enter the command to import the public key of the repository so that the signatures could be verified as follows :

    wget -q http://www.thinkgos.com/files/gos_repo_key.asc -O-\
    | sudo apt-key add -

  • Next update your apt cache database using the command :

    sudo apt-get update

  • To install the necessary files which will allow you to run gOS on Ubuntu, run the following apt-get command :

    sudo apt-get install greenos-desktop

  • If you do not have enlightenment (e17) window manager (WM), then apt-get will have to download and install that too which could hike your download size by around 35 MB.

    • Once installed, you can select gOS/Enlightenment from sessions option in your login screen.

      Good Luck

  1. Hi! Need advice. There is no one else to ask. My credit is bad (very bad) and I am eager to apply for a card. And I have found two variants for me at one website: secured credit cards and unsecured cards for bad credit. I’d like to make the right choice therefore I am searching for advice or experience. And hope that you answer me as soon as possible.
