Ubuntu Studio 10.04 Lucid Lynx


Ubuntu Studio is a multimedia editing/creation derivative of Ubuntu. It is built for audio, video and graphic enthusiasts or professionals. But as it is free and open-source, everyone is free to use. It is an officially recognized derivative of the Ubuntu Linux distribution, which is explicitly modified for general multimedia production. The latest version is Ubuntu Studio 10.04 – Lucid Lynx. We have already discussed in detail about Ubuntu Studio 9.10 in our previous post.

As we have already discussed, Ubuntu Studio can be installed by 2 Methods :-

1) Upgrade Install – Synaptic Package Manager based installation. [requires Ubuntu 10.04 already installed]

2) Dedicated Install – Making a separate partition and installing Ubuntu Studio afresh. [requires a separate empty space, atleast 10gb]
