You can now Test Ubuntu 24.04 Desktop Installer in Web Browser

Last updated: February 21, 2024 — 1 Comment

For those who are interested in the development of Ubuntu 24.04 LTS, the developer team has opened a channel for the desktop installer usability test.

Anyone can try out the desktop installer by simply visiting a page in web browser. It will ask to grant permission to share the screen of browser window (Screen Sharing), so developer team can know where you spend time, get stuck, and go smoothly.

Also it asks to enable Microphone, so you can tell what you’re thinking as you go. And, of course either or both can be disabled!

“It’s a prototype built in figma – nothing is installed!”

The installer is a Flutter app that’s already in use in Ubuntu 23.04 and Ubuntu 23.10. It’s however being redesigned to be more beginner and dual system (Windows) friendly.

It detects your hardware and tells if it’s certified, asks to disable RST in Windows (if enabled), and provides an easy to use guide for selecting install destination, adding encryption, and more.

Besides providing feedback through Microphone (if turned on), you can also answer few questions in the page to help making the desktop installer better.
