== Ubuntu SwissRemix DVD ==

There is information and some help in the document [[/UbuntuSwissRemix|UbuntuSwissRemix]]

Note: Some people reported occasional problems with firefox after upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04. This is being verified, and removing the ''icedtea'' plugin seems to be a workaround.

Note: If you still have the 9.04 DVD and want to upgrade to 9.10, ensure you have the system fully updated on 9.04 before upgrading. The latest ubuntu-desktop-swiss package inhibits deactivation of the Swiss PPA by the update-manager.

''Ubuntu pro omnibus, omnes pro Ubuntu!''

Switzerland Switzerland has, although a small country, no less than 4 official languages with a wealth of dialects and variations. To have a common ground, the official communication language of our LoCo is English. For most Swiss Ubuntu-users, support and information in their own (main) language is provided by the French, German and Italian speaking communities. (Any takers for a Romansh initiative?)

The Swiss team would like, however, to enhance communication between Swiss Ubuntu users/contributors, and arrange local meetings and provide local support.

On launchpad, we are the Ubuntu Swiss User group. We are one of the approved Ubuntu LoCoTeams.
