Ubuntu Web Remix

@ss3988024 Like @ogra mentioned, you are expected to use sudo for getting root privileges. This is for your security.

It is definitely not recommended to set a root password (although you can set it by typing sudo passwd root in the terminal).

thank you. so far, im enjoying using ubuntu web. smooth and no prob at all. impressive! keep up the good work!

Hello, thank you for your work @rs2009. Just a quick question: I’m trying to boot this distro on an old Dell Vostro 1510 with Intel Core 2 Duo T5870, but it fails and i can’t get past a initramfs console. I tried 3 different USB sticks, Rufus and Win32DiskImager to create the live USB, but the problem persist. I also checked che MD5 and it matches. Any advice? Thanks in advance!

@marculfo Are you attempting to boot the LiveCD, or are you attempting to boot an installed system?

@rs2009 I created a live CD with Rufus. The PC boot from it, get to the GRUB screen and I select “try Ubuntu without install”. I see a “Ubuntu Web” logo with a spinning circle for a copule of seconds, then it stops (without any error) and I reach the BusyBox built-in shell with initramfs command line.

@rs2009, you need to redirect people with technical support questions such as this to the proper place. Per the header:

This site is not for technical support.

Since Ubuntu Web is a Remix and not an official flavor, you need to be able to redirect people to somewhere to do technical support. Ubuntu Discourse is not the place to do that.

Thanks for your understanding.


@eeickmeyer Sure, Erich.

I’ve created a Telegram group and announcements channel at https://t.me/ubuntuwebdiscuss and https://t.me/ubuntuwebannounce, respectively.

@marculfo Could you please ask your query at the above Telegram group link?

Sure, thank you! I also asked on askubuntu.com, let’s see if someone can help :slight_smile:

Hi everyone, an update has been pushed to all computers running Ubuntu Web, bringing the popular libre software app repository/store F-Droid to Anbox in Ubuntu Web. You can install the update from the Software Updater. We are currently working on bringing /e/ Apps to Anbox as well.


Chromium is free and open source why would u create it on Firefox? also, chromium has better place in market

@rs2009 thank you for all the hard work! Ubuntu Web Remix is an excellent idea! Cheers !

Can I play PUBG mobile on Ubuntu Web Remix?

Can I install deb or rpm or only apk?

There is Alien, at least for RPMs, though YMMV.

given it pre-installs anbox you should surely be able to also install apk’s in the anbox VM …

Good call, i forgot about anbox.

Because chromium is owned and maintained by google which cannot be trusted. I think you should research on this a lot more to know why such decision is taken.

I can!t wait for this be available for the Pinebook Pro. Any news regarding the ARM port? :slight_smile:

Unfortunately, we are currently facing a few anbox-dkms compilation issues, which has kept me quite busy for some time. Hence, I haven’t had enough time to look into the arm64 port.

Why don’t you reach out to the Pine64 community? There are some capable beings working on ports and tweaks all the time. There was some buzz, when I opened the forum thread for your OS fork. :slight_smile: I personally would recommend Lukasz, who is the community manager. He might know who would be interested to contribute to your efforts, when it comes to arm64 port.

No rush, of course, just being excited, that’s all. :wink: Keep up the good work.
