On my list now. :KS
Thanks guys. Ive added all your suggestions to my list. Its interesting what you say regarding Arch and Ubuntu minimal.
Im mainly doing this for educational reasons so will install or reinstall...
Im looking for some ideas for new distros for an old laptop:
Its an Advent 7094 bought in early 2005.
-Intel Celeron M 370 1.5 GHz
-256MB DDR Ram
-Integrated SiS661GX Graphics with...
Have you installed Emerald?
You can change the transparency level of the panels by right-clicking them and then editing the properties.
It didnt work.
I think its a graphics card vs Linux driver issue. A driver update for my ATI 2100 with the installation of the Catalyst Control Center plus xorg will only cause the graphics to...
It was due to the installation of 2 bad packages.
My problem has been taken up (and solved) in the following thread:
YES IT HELPED !!
I also purged xorg-driver-fglrx and my desktop is back to normal :):)
Thanks a lot!
PROBLEM SOLVED : SEE BELOW
My problem is in this post:
Im at work right now and as nice as listening to music would be its not practicable :P
I think what benj1 meant was that the all-around theme (not just the actual desktop theme) is brown (eg forums, ubuntu website, clothing etc)
First thing I did once the internet connection was up...
Yes I would be looking for a distro with proper repositories in place. Crunchbang is now top of my list...
Interesting. I will try out both Xubuntu and Crunchbang separately and see how it goes. If I dont like one or the other ill wipe them and install something else. Ive got time to test it all out, I...
Xubuntu isnt brown either and lightweight :)
I planning doing the same as you actually. Ive got an oldish laptop which Im going to use as a guinea pig for other lightweight distros.
Its there. Problem solved.
However the other theme I installed and applied immediately also was an icon theme but shows up among the other complete themes (as well as an option for icons only)....
Yeah its the Gion theme from art.gnome.org
I already know how the problem came about: I installed it through System > Preferences > Art Manager and then I was asked 'Do you want to apply the theme...
I have exactly the same problem, only that in the hidden themes folder there is no file of that themes name. Also nothing similar. And - I can choose from themes in Appearance which are not displayed...
This thread is very important and I hope the devs / Canonical take note of this.
Its so simple:
1) Have a different default theme
2) Have a different default background image
The Human theme...
Doesnt work. I cant right-click the icon and get 'Compiz Options'. Is there anywhere in the Compiz Settings Manager where I can turn Indirect Rendering off?
Thats what I think as well but I dont know how to fix it. Incidentally I have slow and/or badly running 3D graphics in general (e.g in FlightGear or Torcs - both barely playable)
Ive looked for...
Quite right. One thing is moaning on blogs how bad things are with preinstalled windoze etc, another thing is complaining - taking the issue directly to people in charge of business decisions.
Im still stuck and tried out all suggested here plus changing various other settings in CCSM - and with no effect.
I assume Im missing a vital package...but which one?
Just for info Ive got an...
You didnt give us edubuntu as an option in the poll.... :)
But I would also say regular Ubuntu (I have zero experience with Xubuntu and Icebuntu so dont know about them)
Ok so far so good. I had forgotten to install the Desktop Effects in Add/Remove (which I did).
Then I click on the Compiz Fusion Icon in Applications > System Tools and again nothing happens. The...
All hail Judge Davis !! :)
Hmm its getting stranger by the minute. I did indeed not have the Compiz Fusion Icon installed. So Ive done that and then it appeared in Applications > System Tools. However when I click on it,...
