Ultramarine Linux ist in Form eines ISO-Abbilds zum Download erhältlich, welches verwendet werden kann um eine bootfähige DVD oder einen USB zu erstellen. Diese Anleitung bietet Hilfe bei der Auswahl des richtigen Abbildes, Erstellung des bootfähigen Speichermediums und Installation.


Auswahl der Edition

Ultramarine Linux ist in 5 Editionen erhältlich:

  • Die Flagship Edition, welche die Standardvariante ist. Diese benutzt das Budgie Desktop Environment, welches ein ähnliches Layout wie ChromeOS oder Windows bietet. Diese Edition ist am beliebtesten und die beste Wahl.
  • Die GNOME Edition, with the GNOME desktop environment designed to be elegant and modern. This is the variant you want if you would like a simple, unique experience.
  • Die Pantheon Edition, featuring elementary OS' Pantheon Desktop, made to be familiar to users coming from macOS.
  • Die Cutefish Edition, an experimental version using the Cutefish desktop environment, this is currently the smallest variant, but the Cutefish desktop itself is far from finished, and is heavily under development.
  • Ultramarine Lapis, an OSTree-based variant of the Flagship edition. This variant is designed to be completely immutable, which means the system image itself is not modifiable. This is a variant recommended for non-technical users, or users who mostly work with container-based environments.

Ultramarine Linux is only compatible with x86_64 (AMD64) systems. This is usually the case for most modern computers. On Macs, this means that Ultramarine Linux only supports Intel Macs.

The ISO images are available for download from the Ultramarine Linux website.

If you would like to make sure the ISO image is valid, Ultramarine ISO images all come with a CHECKSUM file that can be checked against the image itself.

The checksum file is a SHA256 checksum of the ISO image, you can use the following command to check the integrity of the ISO image (if you're using another Linux distribution)

sha256sum -b /path/to/ultramarine.iso # Generate the checksum for the ISO image
cat /path/to/CHECKSUM # Check the checksum

# Now you can compare the checksum

Verifying the checksum on Windows

# Open the CHECKSUM file with Nodepad and compare the checksum

Creating the bootable media

With Ultramarine Linux

You can use the Fedora Media Writer to create a bootable media from the ISO image.

With other operating systems (Windows, macOS, other Linux distributions)

You can use balenaEtcher to create a bootable media from the ISO image.

With Windows (alternative)

You can use Rufus to create the bootable image.

Booting to Ultramarine Linux

After flashing the image to your USB drive, you can boot to Ultramarine Linux by plugging in the drive and restarting your computer.

Before your computer boots to your current OS, please refer to your computer's documentation on which key to press to select a custom boot option.

Most BIOS has a special key that can be used to select a boot device, or to enter the BIOS setup screen. This varies from brand to brand. These keys may be Esc, F1, F2, F8, F11, F12, or even Del. The BIOS will usually display a message on the screen briefly on startup. If you're not sure which key to press, look up the BIOS setup instructions on the internet or ask your computer manufacturer.

On Macs, hold down the Alt or Option key after hearing the boot chime.
