Have been running Ubuntu on my desktop since 9.something... now on 11.04, but have not done any updates for a LONG time... I saw Unity and decided I wanted no part of that! I have a laptop that I installed Xubuntu 12.04 on, and like the Xubuntu MUCH better than Ubuntu... So, decided that I would put Xubuntu on the desktop.
I decided to try and revive an old laptop tonight. It's a Compaq Presario V2000.
At first I tried 32-bit Ubuntu 12.04, but it just froze my screen everytime I tried to open browser. So I downloaded Xubuntu 13.10 iso, but when I opened Pen Drive Linux, Xubuntu 13.10 wasn't included in the options on the drop down menu.
Is there a current version of Xubuntu that can be written to flash drive?
I have a desktop PC that has been for a few years on xubuntu. I have decided, however to move all my systems to xubuntu.
I installed most of the systems through a CD (reinstallation) but this one has lots of important files, backups, etc (several TB). I therefore decided to install kubuntu-desktop from aptitude.
I use a PC with Windows 7 for a long time ago. BUT I decided I install xubuntu 14 near Windows 7. I made a bootable USB pendrive with xubuntu live. I boot from the pendrive and start xubuntu live. Xubuntu live started correctly. Then I started the install from xubuntu live. When the installator ask me, I chossed "Install Xubuntu alongside Windows 7".
I'm basically a big fan of Ubuntu distro, but recently came across Elementary OS (eOS) and I like the look and feel.
I don't want to ditch stable Xubuntu just for looks...so planning to use Cairo dock to give a look of eOS.
What do you recommend? How is the stability?
Do people prefer Plank over Cairo with Xubuntu?
Well, Ubuntu keeps crashing and from what I've seen Xubuntu has never crashed on me. So I want to put the Xubuntu Desktop Environment over Ubuntu. (It's unity that keeps crashing) However, I want to play games on this computer through Wine and Steam.
