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 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'm not exactly new when it comes to Linux, especially Ubuntu. But due to my dislike of unity I decided to go with Xubuntu instead of the regular distro. I remember when first doing a clean install of Linux the system worked sluggish. Usually I'd go to where you can add desktop effects (like how the window will jiggle as you move it) it'd have me install my video driver.
After successfully installing Xubuntu 12.04.1 on my laptop, I decided to install Unity. That went OK but then I realized there was no themes. So then I installed the themes and artwork, and got a really bad surprise. My lightDM greeter was still Xubuntu like I wanted but the buttons where you choose the user are really tall and I have a purple computer as the icon above my computer name.
