Updating from Ubuntu GNOME Shell Remix 11.10

This is a guide that may help you upgrading Ubuntu GNOME Shell Remix from version 11.10 to 12.04. Please note that it is easier and recommended to upgrade by doing a fresh install. This guide involves using the command line.

The Upgrade Guide

Open the software properties application by typing the following command in a terminal window and disable all PPAs except the GNOME Shell Remix PPA, as packages from PPAs may cause problems during the update.

software-properties-gtk

After doing that, enter the following commands. This will change all the package sources from the 11.10 ones to the new ones from 12.04.

sudo sed -i 's/oneiric/precise/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo sed -i 's/oneiric/precise/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*

Update the package information:

sudo apt-get update

Now you can start the upgrade:

gksu "update-manager --dist-upgrade"

The following procedure is very similar to the update procedure of a Ubuntu installation with Unity. Please note that you may have to open the command window in the upgrade dialog to complete the upgrade.
