    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.10 very slow

    Ubuntu has the same bloat problem as Windows Vista/7/8. A lot of this is allegedly the interface. Try using Lubuntu instead. If that's still too resource-hungry, you might need to switch to a...

    Linux needs better wireless drivers.

    Come on, guys. Are self-installer packages really THAT much harder to write than the Ubuntu Software Center's "install...

    Okay then. When the Darkmoon Faire is over and I have time to work on this stuff, I'll try that and let you know what the results are.

    Cool.

    Is there any way to just get the lighter GUIs without having to download a whole new image file?

    What are LXDE and XFCE?

    I wasn't running a virus-scanner.

    Yes, I installed nVidia's drivers.

    [ubuntu] Hardware demands

    As I've stated before, this Windows computer is running the cheapest, crappiest Atom that Intel ever made. When supplemented by a discrete nVidia graphics card, it's good enough to run Minecraft at...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Well now I've really screwed things up...

    Yes, I knew all of that before I ever touched Linux, but it doesn't really help me.
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Well now I've really screwed things up...

    Yeah but Windows actually uses new drivers when I install them so I don't have to delete the old ones.



    12.04 here.



    If that was even possible, I wouldn't be bothering with the wireless...

    Unity is pretty horrible... fortunately, you can remove it from Pangolin :P
  11. [ubuntu] Well now I've really screwed things up...

    My wireless card was behaving very erratically and I wanted to know why. A quick "ndiswrapper -l" revealed that yes, the net8192cu drivers were installed and yes, the device was present... but there...

    Does the Software Center require an active Internet connection? If so, it's not of much use to me.

    Also, if I wanted to purge Oracle Java to clear the way for OpenJDK, how would I do that?

    [ubuntu] Java and Minecraft

    I installed Oracle Java 7 update 9 successfully (as far as I can tell) on Pangolin. When I set the Minecraft.jar to be run as an executable, Java doesn't show up on the list of programs that I can...

    [ubuntu] Re: home isn't home WTF

    Typing "cd Desktop" didn't work any better than "cd desktop" did.

    There are no capital letters in my ndiswrapper directory.

    WHY LINUX HATE ME?

  19. [ubuntu] Installing ndiswrapper without internet or the stupid terminal

    I was able to copy the ndiswrapper tarball onto my Ubuntu drive and un-tar it, but the command line is being retarded and not opening the folder. Is there any way to use the GUI to install it?

  24. [ubuntu] Re: What is this symbol and how do I get past it?

    Yup, it was a bad burn. The second disc went without any hitches, one of my hard drives now has 12.04 installed on it, and I've moved on to trying to pull Unity's head out of its ***.
