    If you're going to do a fresh installation, it's a good opportunity to decide which variant you should install.

    If you have a modern computer with at least 2Gb RAM, I'd go for 64-bit Ubuntu. If your RAM is lower or if your computer is old, I'd try 64-bit Lubuntu instead.

    Paddy Landou:

    Went to 2nd PC; had set the Antec Mod SU 380 as it has too many files not backed up. Will do a re-install as you recommend as the PC has memory needed etc.

    thanks again! Kenneth

    Question update ??s 12.04 Antec Model SU380

    Yesterday 8-10-12 amidst intended corrective action, a 601 file update gave us options, particularly a bunch of KDE & Libre office make overs, which did not produce a clean log in page or detected crash notice removal or a libre office that functions w/o going into "a forced to close panic mode." I let an auto-update work around kick in.

    Will report back if the fireworks lets this PC stay alive beyond go.

    Auto back up has not been an option since letting this PC sit idle from June 2nd to August 10th.

    As noted on another thread, when I used this PC the first hour since June 2nd on Aug 10th, the crash detected note was still auto posted and the OS tried to/failed to do updates and went to a forced quit involving a KDE and Libre Office war. Whe the internal fight let up, the PC auto-updated 601 files, ran fair then crashed and tumbled for a while and this morning has done it again then went into an auto repair when I elected not to power off. Will report what happens shortly if I can.

    Paddy, is there a terminal work around that would let me carve out antagonist guts of the current install and build a so to speak blood and guts lubuntu ?

    I did +/- that on this 64 bit Antec Model SU380. I have maybe six or eight gigs of files not backed up and want every bit of a chance to save that. If I recall I beefed up the PPA anticipating I'd do some high powered video production. No productions got done and now a light OS would handle most of what I need to do.

    Hope you or any concerned other may venture a work around going from a some what over built OS to light weight Lubuntu.

    Kenneth, I'm sorry, I do not entirely understand everything that you have written.

    If you wish to back up your files but your computer won't boot, may I suggest that you boot from a Live CD and back up from there to a safe place, e.g. an external USB drive.

    If you wish to do video work, take a look at Ubuntu Studio. I haven't used it, but it may suit your needs.

    EDIT: By "variant", I just meant one of the alternative "flavours" of Ubuntu. Ubuntu has several flavours: its main offering (also known as Unity), Lubuntu (for low-spec machines), Xubuntu (uses LXDE desktop), Edubuntu (for educators), Ubuntu Studio, and Kubuntu (uses KDE desktop). There are also unofficial Ubuntu distributions, such as Bodhi (for very low-spec computers) and Mint. Then there are many other distributions that have nothing to do with Ubuntu, such as CentOS, Fedora, Arch, Debian, Red Hat, and a multitude of others.

    Re: Slow OS upgraded to 12.04 Antec Model SU380

    Paddy: I've used Ubuntu Studio seven years and am finding out via backup that I am saving immense junk, caches, old/presumed to be deleted programs, crash reports, etc. Much of that is being backed up unnecessarily. I had tried to ask you whether I could essentially delete major parts or all of the old programs, discarded programs, etc. using a terminal delete. Why? I am paranoid regardless of how good back up may be that I'd lose the half million files, chapters, etc. that remain on my HD, to be edited and turned into manuscripts. Yes, I am slow to learn how to copy those jewels to thumb drives, DVDs or a cloud storage.

    My question is answered for deleting Lubuntu via terminal @ http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2040433.

    I want a general terminal deletion to remove ubuntu studio, multiple builds of mozilla firefox, sea monkey, opera and so forth. I know if U do a new install it wipes a HD clean. But, amidst certain programs like opera, big caches of video and picture memories, you can lose valuable writing, calculations and other materials, which only a research scientist would want. Well, I have to face the hard work, and even buy Hard drives so I guarantee the files are not lost. apologies.
    '
    back to the terminal deletion guidance I am asking for. Do you know where I may find the sudo apt-get remove ???? that I may use to do "the dumps" one by one... ?

    yes, I'd be grateful to know...

    housekeeping for slowing OSs

    Paddy: if you wonder what's Ken talking about stop in on housekeeping at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...8#post12165748

    Thanks for pointing me along the way. Looking back at getting my KX Studio humming and saving photos in Opera and removing it as incompatible with Open Weld and audio programs etc., ended up with worthless crash reports that are in my cloud, on thumb drives and DVDs, making it hard as a dickens to find highly valuable paragraphs or chapters I find hard to locate.

    I know, you too have the need.

    Thanks again!!!!!!
