Ubuntu – Receiving “Please insert CD error” when trying to install xubuntu desktop in 12.04


I have installed Ubuntu 12.04.
I want to install xfce desktop. When I tried to install Xubuntu desktop, I got the following message.

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

Media change: please insert the disc labeled
 'Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS _Precise Pangolin_ - Release i386 (20120817.3)'
in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter

I didn't know why I'm getting this error, and also I don't have CD drive. I installed Ubuntu using usb.

Please let me know how to install xubuntu desktop.

  • In the ubuntu software center, the edit tab also has a selection for software sources. If you were to uncheck the cdrom in the window at the bottom, your problem may be solved.
