Downloading the Labdoo Images



If you have any questions about this page or if you find any errors, please write a message to the support wall and a Labdoo volunteer will help resolve it. Thank you for helping to improve our wiki pages.

In this step, you will need to have an external hard drive where you will be downloading one or more Labdoo images from the Labdoo FTP server. We recommend choosing a hard drive with at least 100GB, although larger is even better (e.g., 200GB, 500GB or 1TB) if you want to download some of the larger images or multiple of them.

Start by connecting again to Labdoo's FTP server using FileZilla (see the previous section for a description on how to do this).

Then, go to '/var/www/download/install-disk/'. In this location, you will find multiple directories of the form XX_images, where XX describes the language of the image. Each of these directories contains multiple images organized by their size. For instance, inside the English images directory 'EN_English_images', you will find the directory 'PAE64_20_04_LTS_EN_160'. The name of this directory tells us that it corresponds to a (PAE) 64 bit image based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, with English language preconfigured and with a total of 160GB of educational content. The 160GB corresponds to the minimum size of the hard drive that a laptop must have in order to be able to store this image.

In the field 'Local site' make sure you select the external hard drive where you want to download the images.

Now go ahead and download the image that you are interested in. For instance, if you are interested in downloading the 'PAE64_20_04_LTS_EN_160' image mentioned above, travel to the directory '/var/www/download/install-disk/EN_English_images/', right click on the directory 'PAE64_20_04_LTS_EN_160' and select the option 'Download'. The image will be automatically downloaded to your external hard drive. Download as many images as you need, provided that you have enough space in your external hard drive. Note that the process of downloading one or more images could take some significant time, depending on the speed of your connection.
