    Need some help here...

    I intend to replace Windows with Kubuntu

    The disk in my laptop have two partitions: C:\ (where Windows is installed) and D:\. I don't have a external disk to backup the files in D:\...

    I'll install Kubuntu from a usb. Can i simply choose C:\ as the install target, and the data in D:\ will be saved? Should i remove the 101MB of unallocated space? thanks

    Ps: sorry my poor english

    I'm not sure if adding gnome sensors to the Kubuntu control panel works. However, there are some widgets available in Kubuntu which are similar.
