How can I tell which version of Zorin OS I have (Lite, Core, Ultimate) in a live session before installing it?
Hold CTRL ALT F2, enter the following command in terminal.
This will tell you what version of OS you have, which version of Linux Zorin is coded on.
To be honest, this has been a question asked a lot on here, and there is no easy way to find this stuff out when it comes to Core, Lite etc. Its one of the things that I am hoping the Zorin team will fix in the new OS16, to give users an easy way to find that stuff out.
That thread explains the difficulty determining whether you have Lite, Core etc flavour of Z15.3
Thank you, but it only allows you to tell if you have Core or Lite by looking at the DE (XFCE for Lite and GNOME for Core / Ultimate) so there is no way to tell if I have Ultimate
Thank you, I hope they address that too because it really causes unnecessary confusion.
What is your output from StarTreker's command? I am running Ultimate and that command does not tell me that I have Ultimate running.
On your installation media, opening the files
.disk/info will give you the information. Note that for those files, Ultimate Core will only show "Ultimate". Ultimate Lite will show as "UltimateLite". Core will show as "Core".
That is a bit like me sticking a label on my USB with "Zorin15.3Core" written on it.
