Fancy a XP on Your Ubuntu?

For those who are too used to Windows XP interface, XPde (XP Desktop Environment) provides a desktop environment that emulates after XP.

The installation guide in the XPde folder does not work.

psychocats has written a simple script to automate the installation.

Download the scripts to your desktop.

In your terminal, type

cd ~/Desktop
chmod +x installxpde.sh
./installxpde.sh

Personally, I don’t find the XPde attractive, nor it is fully functional. But for those who really can’t live without XP, then this desktop environment might help you to get used to Linux easier.

To uninstall, in your terminal, type,

sudo rm -rf /usr/share/xpde
sudo rm /usr/share/xsessions/XPde.desktop
