Over the next few months all those with an existing SL7 DICE desktop will be contacted by the Computing Support Team to arrange for it to be upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04 (focal fossa) . We are aiming to upgrade all staff/PhD desktops by Easter 2021, but if you would like your machine upgraded sooner you should contact the Computing Support Team. If you receive an email, please respond, even if it’s to arrange a different time.
We are also taking this opportunity to ask you whether you still need a physical DICE desktop on your desk or whether our Remote Desktop Service (xrdp) meets your computing needs.
To contact the Computing Support team please full in the form at: https://www.inf.ed.ac.uk/systems/support/form/
