Before we begin

While it is possible to try out Ubuntu 22.10 early, it should be noted that it is still under heavy development at this stage.

Downloading Ubuntu 22.10 daily image

Until its release, Ubuntu is creating a “daily image.” So what is a daily image? A daily image is a daily build from the Ubuntu build system that can be used to install Ubuntu 22.10. Each daily build has the latest fixes, patches, and packages.

Head to the Ubuntu CD image website to get your hands on the latest 22.10 daily image. Once you are there, locate ” kinetic-desktop-canary-amd64.iso” and select it with the mouse. When you choose this link, the ISO will begin downloading to your computer.

The Ubuntu 22.10 daily image is around 4 GB, so the download may take some time to complete. When the download process is done, get a USB flash drive and follow the steps in the next section to create an installation USB.

Creating Ubuntu 22.10 installation USB

You must create an installation USB to set up Ubuntu 22.10 on your computer. In this guide, we’ll use the Etcher application to create an installation USB, as it is cross-platform and works similarly on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Head over to Etcher.io, download the Etcher app, and launch it on your computer. Once it is open, follow the steps below to create your Ubuntu 22.10 installation USB.

  1. Find the “flash from file” button, and click on it with the mouse. Then, browse for the Ubuntu 22.10 ISO file on your computer.
  2. Plug your USB flash drive into the computer. Once the USB flash drive is plugged in, click on the “Select target” button in Etcher and select your USB.
  3. Find the “Flash!” button in the Etch app and click on it with the mouse. The Etcher application will begin creating your Ubuntu 22.10 installation USB when you select this button. It will take some time to complete, so be patient.

After the Etcher application is finished creating your Ubuntu 22.10 installation USB, close it. Then, reboot your computer into the BIOS. Once you load into the BIOS, you will need to configure your computer to boot from USB so that you can install Ubuntu 22.10 on it.

Setting up Ubuntu 22.10 on your computer.

To install Ubuntu 22.10 on your computer, follow the step-by-step instructions below.

  1. When you start up the Ubuntu 22.10 installer, you will see a “Welcome page.” Select your language, then click the “Continue” button.
  2. On the next page, Ubuntu will ask you to either “try” or “install” Ubuntu. Select the “Install Ubuntu” button with the mouse and click on the “Continue” button to move to the next page.
  3. You’ll now need to select your keyboard layout. Look through the list of available keyboard layouts and choose one. When done, click on the “Continue” button.
  4. While not required, connecting to the internet while installing Ubuntu is a good idea. Ensure you are connected via the “Connect to internet menu.” Then, click “Continue.”
  5. You must choose your type of installation in Ubuntu. Select either “Normal installation” or “Minimal installation.” Then, click “Continue.”
  6. Next, it is time to choose an installation method. For best results, select “Erase disk and install Ubuntu.” Otherwise, if you are an expert, choose “Something else.” Finally, click “Continue” to move to the next page.
  7. After choosing how to install Ubuntu, you must select a timezone in the “Where are you” menu. Then, use the world map to select where you live so Ubuntu can assign the correct time to your PC.
  8. Next, in the installation, you will be required to tell Ubuntu your and your computer’s names. You will also need to pick a username and choose your password. Enter your full name in the “Your name” box and your computer name in the “Your computer’s name” box.
  9. After writing in your name and computer name, write in your username, and choose a secure password. This password needs to be memorable so that you can remember it each time you enter it. When done, click the “Continue” button.

Once you’ve gone through all nine steps, Ubuntu 22.10 will install on your computer. This process will take a few minutes, so be patient. When the process is complete, reboot to use Ubuntu 22.10 on your PC!
