Alternative downloads

There are several other ways to get Kubuntu including torrents, which can potentially mean a quicker download, and links to our regional DVD image mirrors for our older (and newer) releases.


BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer download network that sometimes enables higher download speeds and more reliable downloads of large files. You will need to install a BitTorrent client, such as ktorrent, on your computer in order to enable this download method.
