    ubuntu remix vs ubuntu desktop on a notebook

    Hi there,

    i am experiment with my friends notebook toshiba NB100. he wants to put ubuntu on it. here is what am i facing with..

    1.When the install finishes the new look of notebook remix crashes the hole system. no point moves no nothing
    2.i reinstalled with safe graphics this time and workes much better but still had lag. when i switched to the classic ubuntu view it was running ok. but.. when i restarted i couldnt see the panels above and below.
    3.i dont know what to do so i want some opinions...

    • why all this lag?
    • can i fix the system so i can see the panels?
    • will it be better if i install a desktop version??


    thanks in advance,
    Stelios

    hi,

    i don't have an answer to any of your questions, but i will point out that if you can get a standard ubuntu install to work...

    ...you can go ahead and install the netbook-remix metapackage from the repos and get close to the same result. hopefully, not including the issues you are having!

    i got your point...!!
    if you can make an ubuntu system to work then you can modify it as you like!

    anyway i found an 8.10 version of ubuntu remix and works fine!!

    thanks again
