I was thinking after my previous post and probing the general of the SE sites, we should split the into:

  • : for general software installation instructions. If you are/want build from sources, or the problem is apt/dpkg then you should use the according tags. This will absorb all questions in and and only the questions that fit in

  • : For installations of Ubuntu. Remember that Ubiquity is the graphical installer of Ubuntu and questions about it should use also the . This tag should be used for problems with the installation process itself and the use of the installer. Post/pre installations problems, ie. boot, dual-boot, partitioning schemes, have their own tags. The questions that fit from , i.e. about installing Ubuntu itself.

What do you folks says?

  • But questions about installing Ubuntu in general will be left out... – Seth Dec 13 '13 at 1:44
  • @Seth but you install Ubuntu using Ubiquity! – Braiam Dec 13 '13 at 1:44
  • But my question has nothing to do with the installer, just the process of installing it! – Seth Dec 13 '13 at 1:45
  • @Seth gimme an example... – Braiam Dec 13 '13 at 1:47
  • I can't find one right now lol. We do have them. – Seth Dec 13 '13 at 1:51

    ubiquity is not a good tag name for generic Ubuntu installation question: a majority of askers won't know the name, and it doesn't cover the alternate CD (or does it?). I'm all for splitting though, like we're slowly doing on Unix & Linux, with system-installation as the tag name. – Gilles Dec 25 '13 at 19:13
  • @Gilles I modified. – Braiam Dec 25 '13 at 20:15
  • @Seth updated following Gilles advice. – Braiam Dec 25 '13 at 20:16
  • @Braiam That's better. – Seth Dec 26 '13 at 22:45
  • What tag will installing fonts, cursors, etc. go to? I'm assuming software-installation but it may cause some confusion in that it's not exactly "software". – kiri Dec 29 '13 at 1:02
  • @minerz029 fonts and cursors should suffice, you don't need to do a How do I install cursors in lubuntu 13.10 ;) – Braiam Dec 29 '13 at 1:16
  • @minerz029 now that I think better, you are installing "software" in a loosy way, so software-installation may apply. – Braiam May 26 '14 at 15:45

I think that this is a reasonably good idea in theory.


The question is, how will we retag all the questions to one of the more specific tags?
Almost every one of the 11,000 questions will require manual effort to analyse and retag.
