Re: 12.04 - poor sound quality
My apologies for going off subject...
I've stayed with Ubuntu but I've toyed with xfce and lxde. Gnome3 is reason to visit the others again so I did.
On this partition I started with lubuntu but put gnome on and can select which DE I use.
ps -el | grep pulse
in lubuntu shows pulseaudio is still up and running. Maybe it's pollution from the gnome option. Would virgin lubuntu not have pulse?
I haven't ruled out lxde and xfce I just haven't spent the time to learn how to customize which icons on the panels and what the desktop shows.
Thanks for the suggestion. I've penciled lubuntu in as a this winter project.
I'm posting this while in Lubuntu.
