    [ubuntu] Re: Unity faster than normal?

    And I want Canonical to hit a home run with Unity-- I think they can (I think Unity is on the right track). But they need to improve the speed of the basic tools of the interface.

    For example, I...

    It looks like there is no option for that (as far as I can tell, maybe someone else knows more about it)

    [ubuntu] Re: Unity faster than normal?

    I just tried 13.04 on a faster machine than the one in my earlier post, and I'm still seeing 12.10 performance in 13.04. I can't say for sure, but it actually looks like the Dash is even...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unity faster than normal?

    I'm guessing the increase in speed for some people is largely driver improvements.

    I'm seeing the same slowdowns with the Unity Plugin and the Dash that I have seen in the past. Dash is missing...

    [ubuntu] Re: Macbook 2,1 USB Bootable

    I have a MacBookPro2,2 and I have not been able to get it to boot from USB. Apparently this model just plain doesn't like to boot from external drives (including USB flash drives).

    [ubuntu] Re: Macbook touchpad cursor moving "in steps"

    You use the one from the ubuntu kernel tree, not from the download with the make file. Also, if you are using 12.10, you will need to download the raw appletouch.c file associated with Ubuntu 12.10...

  8. Re: ubuntu 12.10 on nexus 7: anyone have it running?

    Yes, it ran KDE fairly well for a while. Though after a period of time, icons and text became a mess of random pixels. I don't know what happened--- this happens with the window decorations in LXDE...
  9. Re: ubuntu 12.10 on nexus 7: anyone have it running?

    But actually, LXDE is running fairly well (just a few visual distortions at the moment). A lot of the controls are small in LXDE, so I made a make-shift stylus which is working well.

    Earlier I...
  10. Re: ubuntu 12.10 on nexus 7: anyone have it running?

    Yeah, even KDE started getting some visual errors/distortion after a while. I guess this release is targeted at developers/etc to help get it running/optimized.

    I have to say that using touch...
  11. Re: ubuntu 12.10 on nexus 7: anyone have it running?

    Can't expect it to run very well at this stage

    I installed it, and tried XFCE and KDE along with Unity. KDE works fairly well at this stage (at least with my tests). Unity seems to stop responding...

    Re: Power Mac G5 Dual 2GHZ Nvidia 5200

    I was never able to get Unity 3D to display correctly, and I think I lucked out with compiz+a mixture of gui components (and messing with the the "workaround" settings in Compiz Settings). I don't...
