1) Check your resolution settings

2) I can't comment for Xubuntu

3) Highlight & copy (either with right click menu or Ctrl+C) from the site, and then I think it's Ctrl+Shift+V to paste into a terminal

4) Gnome and XFCE are desktop environments, though XFCE is lighter on resources. I'm sure wikipedia or some other website can give you more information on this.

Edit: It's also advised to try and use a descriptive thread title ;) Please try to do so in future :)

You might check out http://xfce-look.org if you want to make xubuntu prettier. You can change the fonts in the xfce settings manager in the section, User Interface.

What you changed your post or you don't use one of the most useful things I found when I first came here and the one thing designed to make me shout at a pc when I'm helping someone on win :)

I'm not sure how to get to the Xfce settings manager from the menu because I'm not running it at the moment, but if you type 'xfce-setting-show' in a terminal it will open. You can adjust your resolution by clicking the display button.

Ok are you able to use the alt, F2 keys and enter xterm?
This will open a terminal. I remember you last thread on the fat partition, could you give us some system specs? Like memory and graphics and so on.

KDE is a third desktop environment. If you want to install GNOME, install the
ubuntu-desktop package, and
kubuntu-desktop for KDE. You can do this with Synaptic or you could also use:


sudo apt-get install *buntu-desktop


replace * with u or k.

Once you have the additional environment installed, you can switch to it at the login screen. I'm not sure how to switch sessions with the xubuntu login screen, as I'm not running it. . .

Hope this helps!
