Ubuntu 19.04 Desktop Features

Ubuntu 19.04 ships with the latest GNOME desktop 3.32. This brings performance improvements and new features.

  • GNOME Disks now supports VeraCrypt
  • Settings includes a panel to manage Thunderbolt devices and shows those panels only where the relevant hardware is detected.
  • More shell components are cached in GPU RAM to reduce load and increase FPS count
  • Desktop zoom is now a lot smoother
  • Smoothing of window previews is now dependant on CPU/GPU availability so that busy applications don’t impact the whole system when window previews are visible
  • Added the option to automatically submit error reports to the error reporting dialog window
  • Fingerprint libraries promoted to main to allow unlocking with fingerprints
  • Added snap support to XDG Portals and landed support in Ubuntu
  • The latest version of GS Connect is now packaged in the archive and easily installed

The latest releases of Firefox (66.0) and LibreOffice (6.2.2) are available and installed by default.

Yaru Theme Updates

Yaru theme, the bold, the frivolous, yet distinctly Ubuntu saw further improvements and touchups. Integrates beautifully with GNOME v3.20 Desktop and improves usability with its careful use of semantic colors.

Upgrading from Ubuntu 18.10

To upgrade on a desktop system:

  • Open the “Software & Updates” Setting in System Settings.
  • Select the 3rd Tab called “Updates”.
  • Set the “Notify me of a new Ubuntu version” dropdown menu to “For any new version”.
  • Press Alt+F2 and type in “update-manager -c” (without the quotes) into the command box.
  • Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release ‘18.10’ is available.
    • If not you can also use “/usr/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/check-new-release-gtk”
  • Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.

To upgrade on a server system:

  • Install the update-manager-core package if it is not already installed.
  • Make sure the Prompt line in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades is set to normal.
  • Launch the upgrade tool with the command sudo do-release-upgrade.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions.

Note that the server upgrade will use GNU screen and automatically re-attach in case of dropped connection problems.

There are no offline upgrade options for Ubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu Server. Please ensure you have network connectivity to one of the official mirrors or to a locally accessible mirror and follow the instructions above.

Upgrades on i386

Users of the i386 architecture will not be allowed to upgrade to Ubuntu 19.04 as dropping support for that architecture is being evaluated and users of it should not be stranded on a release with a shorter support window than the release they are already running.

Download Ubuntu 64-bit PC (AMD64) Desktop

The desktop image allows you to try Ubuntu without changing your computer at all, and at your option to install it permanently later. This type of image is what most people will want to use. You will need at least 1024MiB of RAM to install from this image. Choose this if you have a computer based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2).

Download Ubuntu 64-bit PC (AMD64) Server

The server install image allows you to install Ubuntu permanently on a computer for use as a server. It will not install a graphical user interface. Choose this if you have a computer based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2).
