i am a linux user for year now, but i have some problems...
No distro will work properly with my acer TravelMate 5735,
i have tried these:
Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Backtrack, Mint, Fedora, Mageia;
All of them at least had blank screen error, witch some of them i could temporary fix with nomodeset, some of them not. Mint wouldnt even load the GUI, and in ubuntu wifi worked slow as hell.
I was planning on installing a new linux distribution and I am thinking of trying GNOME 3 interface. Other than Fedora 16 ( which has GNOME 3 as default) which other distro supports it? I know it can be installed from the repository(before you downvote me). But I tried the GNOME 3 on OpenSuse and had hard time running it; it never really integrated fully.
I am running Ubuntu 12.04 right now, using the Lubuntu lightweight DE. unfortunately, firefox and chromium seem to eat enormous amounts of ram. I want to know if switching to Lubuntu 12.10 will make the ram usage reasonable, and if it is the best distro for running emulators.
I have 2 GB of DDR2 Ram at 667mhz
an e4500 core 2 duo, 2.2 Ghz
ATI Radeon 3870.
Ok, so I am new to lubuntu my question I have is, when I delete a file what happens to it?
I know on windows if you delete it to the trash and can still be recovered so you have to use a program like cccleaner to delete it for ever or overwrite it.
Is it the same way using ubuntu and lubuntu?
I really think there should be a separate distro icon for Linux Mint since it is one of the most widely used distros. When I submit a post on my Linux Mint machine, it shows up as Ubuntu, which I can understand because it is based on Ubuntu, but wouldn't it be more correct to separate the two?
I have a Toshiba nb505 running a 1.67 GHz Atom processor with 2 GB Ram (maxed out as it was upgraded from 1 GB and not supporting of 4 GB). Seeing as how any further upgrades are limited (new motherboard perhaps) I am curious to find a Distro that would work well with the limitations of my machine.
I love Ubuntu, when I ran it on my desktop. However, it has not run well on my netbook.
I need an easy to use lightweight distro. I basically want to use the machine for C programming, e-mail, web browsing and watching flash videos (youtube etc...)
I am running linut mint 9 LXDE on it now. The only problem is that when I try to watch flash videos, the CPU usage becomes 100% and some videos don't even play properly.
