    [ubuntu] Re: Wanna get back to ubuntu but have doubts

    So, I've been on Ubuntu 13.04 on this new laptop for a day. Here are some observations relating to my doubts:
    1) However bad Ubuntu gets, it'll never be worse than Win 8. I JUST could not stand...

    [ubuntu] Re: Would ubuntu be a good choice?

    Lubuntu would most probably be significantly faster than Ubuntu and a bit faster than Xubuntu. I would say do a clean install if you're just starting. Yes, you can change your DE from the command...

    [ubuntu] Re: Wanna get back to ubuntu but have doubts

    Thanks, I will try the Canon solution. I just wanna drop the screen flicker solution here if anyone stumbles upon this thread in search of a solution:
    1) Enter BIOS, disable secure boot, change...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: 13.04 Won't boot on Toshiba Satellite (S855-S5170) with ATI Radeon GPU

    I had the same problem with Toshiba Satellite L830-135 with ATI Radeon. I would get a black screen at log-in. I booted, pressed Shift, entered Grub and highlighted Ubuntu and pressed "e". Then...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Screen flicker with Live USB--13.04 and Toshiba Satellite with Radeon

    SOLVED:

    This is really interesting. I had just given up and thought "ok, at least I can downgrade to Win 7" and then it wouldn't boot into the Win 7 USB. So I figured out I have to change boot...
  6. [ubuntu] Screen flicker with Live USB--13.04 and Toshiba Satellite with Radeon

    I was hoping linux could once again save me from Win (this time 8... just horrible). I got a new Toshiba Satellite laptop L830-135 with AMD Radeon card. I tried Ubuntu 13.04 on live USB that I made...

    [ubuntu] Re: Wanna get back to ubuntu but have doubts

    My printer is a Pixma MG3250. I haven't tried making it work with Ubuntu. Gonna google that now. That is actually the least of my worries as I don't print/scan that often and I can just boot into...

    [ubuntu] Re: Would ubuntu be a good choice?

    I'm surprised you got Vista to work at all. I would say if you don't absolutely need it, don't do a dual-boot with Vista. Vista is the worst OS I've ever seen; it forced me to discover linux.

    [ubuntu] Wanna get back to ubuntu but have doubts

    Hi all,
    I need some help. Let me try to be brief:
    1) Used Ubuntu and other linux distros for a few years, was generally happy (saved me from Vista hell).
    2) Ubuntu began to get too buggy around...
  12. [lubuntu] Re: autostart programs in lubuntu for absolute beginners

    I was unable to get redshift to work with this method. It doesn't work at all and I've learned that it's because it relies on gnome-clock for something. So I need to not just run redshift, but to...
  13. [other] Re: Starling dissatisfaction and how to get out of it?

    I'm a big fan of xubuntu, have used it for a long time on another machine, but it wasn't as fast as I expected. Put puppy linux on the hard drive (1st time I did that), was super fast, but it feels...
  14. [other] Re: Starling dissatisfaction and how to get out of it?

    We really just needed Word. Didn't know of crossover, that could be very helpful. Thanks! In the meanwhile, we gave up on the idea of using Word on this computer, and I installed puppy linux on...
  15. [other] Re: Starling dissatisfaction and how to get out of it?

    You're right, part of it is our fault, we should have chosen a more powerful computer. My wife needed something lightweight to carry around, and that's why we went with this. But even for just...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop does not shows when i installed nvidia drivers!

    I found 12.10 to be completely unusable. Reverted to 12.04 but even that does not provide the awesome, glitchless experience I had in 10.x and 11.x. On the other hand, Win7 seems to JUST WORK,...
  17. [other] Starling dissatisfaction and how to get out of it?

    We purchased a Starling netbook about 1.5 years ago. We felt like it was a bit more pricy than comparable netbooks in the market, but we wanted to support System76 and the linux world.

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop does not shows when i installed nvidia drivers!

    I had horrible NVidia problems with 12.10, it was a completely unusable system. I tried bunch of things without success. I went back to 12.04. Things work very well. In my experience, it's not...
  19. Re: Not liking the 12.10 destop... what to do ?

    Yeah, linux community is divided in my view because everytime people start talking about this stuff, there is something like a war. Also, for the first time in my life (including all my windows...
  20. Re: Not liking the 12.10 destop... what to do ?

    Doesn't trying to run gnome apps in KDE make it too bloated. I tried that once ages ago and I ended up with alternative browsers and text editors (one for KDE that was already installed and one for...
  21. Re: Not liking the 12.10 destop... what to do ?

    What is gnome panel? Gnome3, and there are bunch of people trying to maintain Gnome2 or forking it (Cinnamon?). But what is gnome panel? Do I have a Gnome(version ?) DE if I install gnome panel? ...
  22. Re: Not liking the 12.10 destop... what to do ?

    All my apps are Gnome. And I like Gnome 3 but not as much as Gnome 2. I do want to stay mainstream as much as possible and do as little tinkering as possible (I've done enough). I'm trying to like...

    [ubuntu] Re: 12.10, problems with Nvidia

    Yeah, I had been using Gnome 3 just prior to this 12.10 disaster. While I quite like Gnome 3, I didn't exactly feel like there's a huge difference between Gnome 3 and Unity. I wish more of linux...

    [ubuntu] Re: 12.10, problems with Nvidia

    Yes, had been using xubuntu on an older laptop and was very happy with it. This is a more powerful desktop, and I'd like to try hard to love Unity so I'm going to push it one more with the stable...
