Here we try to make installing Ubuntu Satanic Edition as easy as possible. If you’re an advanced user, see the Quick Install guide.
The good news is that you no longer need to install SE over the top of Ubuntu Christian Edition; we now have our own Live CD, which contains the operating system, our dark themes, plus some heavy music (which you can play backward and do whatever you hear it tell you to do). See the following page for details:

Installing onto an Existing Ubuntu PC
You can also install Ubuntu Satanic Edition on your existing Ubuntu computer. It is available for Ubuntu Hardy 8.04, Gutsy 7.10, Feisty 7.04 and Edgy 6.10 including both Gnome (Ubuntu) and KDE (Kubuntu) variants.
The recommended way to install Ubuntu SE is from our secure APT repository. This makes installation, upgrading and removal very simple. If you don’t want to use this then you can get the packages and themes from the download page or the individual wallpapers from the screenshots page.
Download the Secure Key
Ubuntu SE is stored in a secure APT repository, so you’ll need to download the key before installation. This is standard practice and if you haven’t done it before it’s very simple; just do the following:
Run a terminal window (Applications->Accessories->Terminal) and cut and paste the following command into it (note that you cut the text by highlighting it with the left mouse button and paste it into the terminal with the middle mouse button):
wget -q https://ubuntusatanic.org/ubuntu-se-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
Adding the Repository
Now we’ll add the software repository to your system.
Go to System->Administration->Software Sources->Third Party Software->Add and enter the following APT line:
deb https://ubuntusatanic.org/hell hardy main
