  12. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 10.04 on PowerBook G4 1.67 15" - no display after install

    You are correct in assume Unity can be slow on older hardware. Some of later G4s and G5s with higher specs should be able to handle it. However, there is an option to go for the newer release with a...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 10.04 on PowerBook G4 1.67 15" - no display after install

    I`m glad to see things are working out. I am afraid you are probably making a mistake installing 10.04 in stead of 12.04, which is the long term supported and still kept up for several years (Used to...
