Voyager Linux GS 18.04 LTS Installation Process
Before starting the installation process they need to know the requirements that your system must have in order to install Voyager on your computers:
Requirements to install Voyager Linux GS 18.04 LTS
- Dual Core processor with 2 GHz or higher
- 3 GB of RAM or more
- 25 GB hard disk
- A USB port or have a CD / DVD drive
Downloading the system image
As a first step we must download from the official site the ISO image from the system, remember that you can get the version for both 32 or 64 bits despite being a derivative of Ubuntu 18.04.
Preparing installation medium.
Done the download pYou can burn the iso on a DVD or some USB. The method to do it from DVD:
- Windows: We can record the iso with Imgburn, UltraISO, Nero or any other program even without them in Windows and later gives us the option to right click on the ISO.
- Linux: They can use especially the one that comes with graphical environments, among them are, Brasero, k3b, and Xfburn.
USB installation medium
- Windows: They can use Universal USB Installer or Linux Live USB Creator, both are easy to use.
Linux: The recommended option is to use the dd command, it is important that you check in which drive the USB drive was mounted to proceed to record the data on it:
dd bs=4M if=/ruta/a/Voyager-Linux.iso of=/dev/sdx && sync
Once we have our media ready, we only need to have the BIOS configured so that the PC starts from the configured installation unit.
Installing Voyager Linux 18.04 GS LTS
During the process of loading the system, you will be asked if you want to test the system in live mode or proceed to install it. If you chose the first one, you should let it load everything you need.
And being inside the system on the desktop you will see a single icon called "Install" double click and the installation wizard will run.
Now in either case they should already be with the installation wizard and it will ask us to let's select the language in which it will be installed the new system in my case I select Spanish.
We proceed with the "Continue" button.

In the next screen it will suggest us to install third party software, mp3, flash, proprietary drivers for graphics, wifi, etc.
As well as if we want to download the latest updates while we install, this option will only be enabled if we have an Internet connection.
We click on continue
Now in this section It will show us the type of installation and partitioning of disks.
We can see a series of options, in my case as I already had another system installed, the reinstall options appear.
But if they don't have any other Linux system something like this should appear:
- Erase Entire Disk to Install Voyager Linux
- More options, it will allow us to manage our partitions, resize hard disk, delete partitions, etc. The recommended option if you don't want to lose information.
Where the most indicated option is "More options"
Here we can choose a partition to install Voyager Linux or choose the entire hard drive. In case of choosing a partition, we will have to give it the appropriate format, remaining like this.
Type partition "ext4" and mount point as root "/".
Once configured we click on continue.
Now the last section will ask us to create a personal user account with a password appropriate. We can also select if we want the system to start automatically without asking for authentication.
Once the setup is done, just we will have to wait for the installation process to finish and a legend appears informing you that the installation has finished.
Only we will have to restart.
