I have been using Ubuntu and Linux Mint exclusively for the last few years. However, I'm thinking of switching to a different distro base, becasue I don't think Ubuntu is entirely stable (I've experienced regular crashing with the last few releases of Ubuntu).
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 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 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?
Currently running Mint 16 on one of my laptops and trying to load some older (just post 2000) games. A search of the Mint forums has shown that Mint can be difficult to game with. Was wondering if any other Linux users can recommend a distro that is "easier" to get Windows games to run on. I am currently investigating both SteamOS and Manjaro but could use some advice.
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?
