    lubuntu clean install verses desktop inviroment on ubuntu

    Hi all, I was wondering if their any benefit between a stand alone lubuntu install verses adding the desk environment to Ubuntu. I have it done both ways, and don't seem to notice any difference in speed, the only difference i see is that on the desk top environment i have the Ubuntu app available.
    any thoughts?
    Thanks

    Ps. I'm not using any kind of app. to see the difference in speed it,s just an observation, and I'm not trying to split hairs.
    I think i mite have put this in the wrong category, sorry.

    Re: lubuntu clean install verses desktop inviroment on ubuntu

    I am interested in your experiment. I got fed up with clean install of lubuntu. I prefer to have the Ubuntu desktop, & have just performed an upgrade with an Ubuntu 11.10 install CD. It installed really nicely and very smoothly, but I need to make it leaner to be faster. So I am now considering downloading the lubuntu desktop from synaptic.

    However, we need to install synaptic first with 11.10 don't we? What a pain. Even with the terminal command:

    apt-get install synaptic package manager

    it doesn't want to know! Why oh why did the Oneirics leave out synaptic? It is essential.

    I agree
    , some things just need to be left alone. I like the old saying ( If it's not broke why fix it).
    Back to the post, I did the desktop enviroment install over ubuntu 11.04 on my net book, I have a ssd hard drive, so the speed is already pretty quick. I defenatetly see a big difference between lubuntu verses Ubuntu, on their own, but having lubuntu in Ubuntu i think is still at the lubuntu speed. although I like unity, it takes a lot longer for things to come up ones you click on the tiles in unity.

    Hi and thanks for choosing Lubuntu

    I'm one of the Lubuntu Team and I'm glad that many people are really interested in Lubuntu

    Before I forget, please have a look at my signature - Lubuntu One Stop Thread. It has many information that might help you in the future

    Back to your question. I see you have a new machine, am I right? with SSD HDD. Hmm, you won't really notice any differences.
    For me, I think it's different. If not with Speed then with Space. I'm not sure how much space does Ubuntu 11.10 takes but I managed to install Lubuntu on 4GB USB Drive and I do have 1.5GB Free.

    Basically, you will have two main DE's installed over the same core. If you go Lubuntu Route and do a clean new install, you'll have One. In fact, there are more because you'll be able for example to login to Openbox if you have Lubuntu. You can choose that at the login screen.

    I think it's more a personal opinion. I'm one of those who prefer Clean Install rather than installing a package over another package, not to mention the menu could be a mess.

    Lubuntu is not only Lightweight but Simple too. That's why I like it.

    I'd rather have a clean install then add my favorite packages later on (nautilus, gnome-system-monitor ...). There are less surprises.

    These apps are not included with Lubuntu and these are not meant to be used with Lubuntu. Lubuntu has Lightweight Apps

    Check my thread - One Stop Thread > First Post > Section D > #4

    However, +1 for clean install

    Thanks Amjjawad,I was hoping you would see my thread. In fact your Lubuntu one stop is what got me interested in lubuntu, I have different boxes with different Ubuntu's in them. I have been with Ubuntu 11.04 since it came out, I have only used Linux since march of this year, so I'm trying to learn as much as possible. lubuntu is awesome, but i need to get more into it, their is certain thing that are new, and as I get familiar with Ubuntu, throwing lubuntu in the mix gets me thinking in a different way. I don't Know how to explain it, because they are kind of the same, but not. any how I'm sure I will be requiring your assistance in the near future. BTW your Thread is awesome.
    Thanks Borunco
    PS. is their a tutorial on audacious ?

    You most welcome
    I always search for threads with [lubuntu] prefix, thus my signature

    In fact your Lubuntu one stop is what got me interested in lubuntu
    I'm glad that my thread is helping people to fall in love with Lubuntu as I did

    I have different boxes with different Ubuntu's in them. I have been with Ubuntu 11.04 since it came out, I have only used Linux since march of this year, so I'm trying to learn as much as possible.
    Keep learning please and if you need anything, I'll do what I could to help you

    I think I know what you mean. Don't worry about explaining. Also, one thing you need to learn is to be patient. Lubuntu is great OS that will save your 10 years old machine and breath new life into it. Lubuntu could also work on new machines. It's so light, powerful and stable. The more you dive into it, the more you'll learn so don't worry, it will take some time but that depends on you and how fast you are to learn or let's say how much you are willing to learn

    any how I'm sure I will be requiring your assistance in the near future.
    That is why I'm here. If you have to start a new thread, PM me the link and I'll do my best to help as much as I can. I'm not saying I know everything, of course I don't, but I'll do anything to help a fellow Lubuntu User

    BTW your Thread is awesome.
    Thanks
    Thanks to you

    PS. is their a tutorial on audacious ?
    Hmm, I've never used that program and not sure if there is one for it
    Try google or www.googlubuntu.com
    Or maybe search the forum?
    Any specific thing you are looking for?

    Not shure how to use it for playing music cd's, and putting together a play list. I have used it a little bit but mostly stumbled through it, so don't have a system how to work it yet. I found a tutorial on recording and manipulating sound with it, witch is really cool. But I want to be able to control my music library. Since i have Ubuntu 11.04, I was getting use to banshee, but audacious is a little different.
    Thank you

    I've never used it but I'm sure you can find some useful tips on Google
    I'm working on Test PCs (2) at the same time and I don't even turn the Speaker (which is attached to one of them only) ON. However, when I get some time and need to listen to something, my default is VLC.
