Getting back into Linux... Already having problems...
Got me a Dell Optiplex GX260 off of a friend, and what better thing to do with it than install XUBUNTU!
Pentium 4 2.4 GHZ
768 MB DDR Ram
40 GB HDD
Got Xubuntu 12.04 installed, installation was a little rough but that was because I am thinking the CD drive is going bad... Anyhow I have it loaded up and pretty surprised it works right out of box with my Linksys PCI wireless card, sound works, usb ports work fine....
Here is what I have done...
I quickly discovered that dragging windows was VERY choppy... (Moving a terminal window across the screen) so I figured it had to of been something with my video card driver..
So I followed - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1943652
it seemed to have helped, however was not fixed...
So I followed - http://linux-software-news-tutorials...-speed-it.html
and movement of windows SEEMS to be working fine.
I have also ran across a slowness problem opening things, I will load say Google Chrome, after clicking the icon and the program comes up I say takes about 5-9 seconds...Ubuntu software center about 10-15 and sometimes clicking on the Menu button it will have a brief delay... this is quite an annoyance, what would cause such slowness?
And last but not least! VLC... I am getting audio but no video on any type of video file I play...
