Installing Kubuntu 7.04/8.04 (included in the Caldera delivery)

T his chapter describes the procedures to follow in order to install the Linux Kubuntu

7.04 “Feisty Fawn” or 8.04 “Hardy Heron” operating system.

Overview

If you do not have a Kubuntu operating system already installed, you will need to perform a new installation.

To ensure that your Caldera Graphics software works properly, please only install the version of Kubuntu that comes with your package: indeed, it contains many presets and customized disk partitioning, and is easier to install than the original version.

IMPORTANT: Any other distribution is not guaranteed to work. If you still wish to use the original Kubuntu 7.04 or 8.04 distribution, please download the Kubuntu-7.04-desktop-

i386.iso or Kubuntu-8.04-desktop-i386.iso file from the Kubuntu website at the following

URL: http://www.kubuntu.com/download.php#latest . Do not download the AMD64 or

DVD versions, which have not been tested and therefore may not work. Please also note that the Caldera software will NOT work on a standard Ubuntu system, since it requires the KDE window manager.

Pre-installation requirements

Before you perform the actual installation, ensure that your BIOS is set with the CD/DVD-

Rom drive as the first item to be launched in the boot sequence.

Installation procedures

Here are the steps you have to follow to perform the Kubuntu 7.04/8.04 installation:

1. Use the Kubuntu 7.04/8.04 Installation DVD to boot your system.

2. System language selection

3. Time zone selection

4. Keyboard selection

5. Partitioning the hard disk

6. Creating the first user

7. Finalizing the installation.

Boot the system

To boot the system:

1. Insert the Kubuntu 7.04/8.04 Installation DVD into the DVD-Rom drive.

5

I N S T A L L A T I O N M A N U A L

2. Turn on the system. The system will automatically boot from the CD. After booting, the software will display the main installation window.

3. When the Kubuntu boot menu shows up, you can press F2 to change the language of the installation interface, and F3 to change the keyboard layout. This will not affect the system language and keyboard that will be installed later on.

NOTE: For a Kubuntu 8.04 installation, this step is different. First you have to choose the language of the installation interface and press Enter. Then choose Install Kubuntu, and press

Enter again.

4. Select Start or install Kubuntu and press Enter to begin the installation.

NOTE: If you do not touch the keyboard, this step will be performed automatically after 30 seconds.

5. Wait for the Live System desktop to appear, then do a single-click on the

Install icon in the top left corner.

This will execute the installation process.

NOTE: There are six steps to perform here. The current step is indicated in the bottom left corner of the installation window.

System language selection

1. In the first window of the installation wizard, select the system language by highlighting the desired language. The system will automatically determine the appropriate language parameters.

2. Click Next.

6

I N S T A L L I N G K U B U N T U 7 . 0 4 / 8 . 0 4

Time zone selection

1. Select the time zone by clicking on the map, or by directly selecting a city in the Selected

city options list.

2. Click Next.

Keyboard selection

I N S T A L L A T I O N M A N U A L

Partitioning the hard disk

This is where the partitioning of the hard disk will be set up.

The Caldera Kubuntu 7.04/8.04 CD features a fully automated partitioning process. You simply have to select the Guided – Use entire disk item in the list of available choices. This will create a 15 GB root partition and a swap partition, the size of which depends on the amount of RAM in your machine; as for the remaining disk space, it will be used for data storage.

Warning: Using the automated partitioning process will erase all data previously stored on the disk. If you want to preserve one or more partitions and/or if you need to dual-boot your computer with another operating system, please use the Manual partitioning method instead.

The same thing applies if you have more than one hard disk, since the guided partitioning will only use one of them.

If you wish to use the Manual partitioning mode, make sure to follow these instructions:

1. Create a root partition with the following specificities:

Size: 15 GB

Filesystem: Ext3

Mount point: /

2. Create a swap partition with the following specificities:

8

I N S T A L L I N G K U B U N T U 7 . 0 4 / 8 . 0 4

Size: 100% to 200% of the RAM of the machine

3. Create a data partition with the following specificities:

Size: As large as you can

Filesystem: Ext3

Mount point: /home

Click the Next button.

Creating the first user

1. It is now time to enter some basic personal information and create a user who will have administration rights on your system.

When using the Caldera Kubuntu CD, all the fields here are already filled. The user account that is created this way is caldera, and its password is caldera as well. You can modify them if you wish, but be aware that this could cause problems later on in case you would need the

Caldera support team to help you with troubleshooting tasks. However, you can safely change the name of the computer itself, which will be necessary if you are installing more than one Caldera machine on your network.

NOTE: The account created here will be considered a system administrator. In Kubuntu, the root account cannot be accessed directly, and only administrators can use its specific features.

9

I N S T A L L A T I O N M A N U A L

2. Click the Next button.

Finalizing the installation

1. Click the Install button. The installation process will then begin; it may take a little while, so do not be surprised.

2. When the installation is complete, restart your computer.

3. The CD tray will open. Remove the CD, and press the Enter key to reboot the computer, as indicated on the screen.

4. After the computer has rebooted, log in with the account created at the Creating the first

user step. The username and password are normally caldera.

Installing X11 without reinstalling Mac OS X

T he Caldera Graphics software requires having X11 installed on your computer. If it is not the case, you will not be able to use our product. However, if you already have a Macintosh with OS X installed, it is very likely that you do not want to perform a reinstallation of your machine. Therefore, this chapter will explain how to install

X11 without having to completely reinstall your operating system.

Installing X11

To install X11 on your existing Mac OS X system, you must have the OS X DVD that was delivered with your computer.

1. Insert the DVD in the drive.

2. A window displaying the contents of the DVD will immediately open.

Click in this window to make it active.

Installing the Caldera Graphics software

T his chapter provides procedures to successfully install Caldera Graphics software on

Kubuntu and Mac OS X systems.

The installation program can be run either in Simple or in Advanced mode. The

Simple mode uses predefined default values for most configuration options. Nevertheless, it lets you choose products, printers, cutters and scanners to install.

The Advanced mode allows you to configure more options, such as the installation directory and the license server.

NOTE: When a procedure is part of the Advanced installation only, you will be warned about it, and invited to jump to the next step directly.

Starting the installation

To open the Installation program:

NOTE 2: In case the system you have installed

15

I N S T A L L A T I O N M A N U A L is an official Kubuntu 7.04/8.04 release, you will be unable to start the installer script

(instead, it will simply appear in a text editor).

You will therefore need to perform the following steps:

• Open a console terminal (K menu>System>Konsole (Terminal program)).

• Type the following command: sudo

If you do not have an X11 server, it will be mount -o remount, exec installed now. This procedure may last a few

NOTE: We recommend that you use the Simple Installation. The Advanced Installation will allow you to install the Caldera Graphics software packages when the key server is located on a separate workstation, and to customize some system services.

System services selection

1. You will then be asked if you want to install some system services or not. These services are used by the Caldera Graphics software in order to be well integrated to a network environment. However, be aware that this may break your previous configuration in case you are installing on an already existing system and you were using these services.

The concerned services are mainly the disk and printer shares, and web and FTP servers.

On a newly installed system, you can press Yes without problems.

2. This step is part of the Advanced installation. If you're performing a Simple installation, jump directly to the next step.

In Advanced mode, you can choose the system enhancements you wish to install: Public
