    I will try to help:

    Describe your computer hardware


    - brand name and model (don´t know)
    - cpu (don´t know)
    - ram (don´t know)
    - graphics card/chip (don´t know)
    - wifi card/chip (It is connected to the freebox)

    It currently has 34 GB of free space

    *. Describe what you want to do with the computer (the main tasks)

    - browsing the internet and mail
    -
    - word processing, presentations
    -
    -
    - video playing, (in the newspapers etc)
    - music playing,
    -
    -

    *. Do you want Ubuntu alone or along with Windows or along with MacOS? (dual boot)

    I am using Ubunto alone.

    I have NOT removed anything manually.

    Re: sudo apt-get install gnome-session

    Please try to find out about cpu, ram and graphics with these commands
    Code:
    gksudo lshw>lshw.txt
    and view the file lshw.txt with a viewer or editor or simply attach the file to a reply

    or run the GUI program hardinfo, find the information and type it into a reply. I think it might be easiest with hardinfo.

    34 GB free space is plenty of space for Ubuntu and a lot of personal data

    Sorry, I don't quite get what you mean with anamorphosed (I'm not a native English speaker). Distorted in some way? I think it's déformé in French?

    That may not be there. On this 10.10 install hardinfo is not installed by default. It is apparently available through the software centre.

    I always use lshw myself. You can start that with sudo, incidentally, since it is not a graphical program. The gksudo for is intended for graphical programs like, for instance, gedit or nautilus.

    In fact, lshw seems to work fine without sudo even, but it gives you a warning that it should be run with sudo, so I always do.

    In my day, we had outdoors in which to run, play, and socialise. Now we have computers to do those.

    1. If not installed, use
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install hardinfo
    2. I have found that command lines with lshw sometimes eat (or hide) the sudo password prompt, and that is why I recommend gksudo. Edit: maybe that was only in an old version of Ubuntu

    OK. I've not noticed that, but I'll take your word for it.
