    I don't know which browser you're using but if you just keep your mouse cursor over each link and look at the left bottom corner of the browser window, you'll see what I mean (I hope). This should work for Chrome/Chromium or Firefox.

    Not sure what was wrong but it should be fine now. Thanks a lot.

    Brainstorming ...

    Hello

    Let's start some brainstorming, how about that?

    One of the things in mind is:http://amjjawad.blogspot.com/2013/06...tu-part-2.html

    Part 1 can be found on the above link so you can tell from all this has come from.

    Please note, this is very initial idea. Which means, we are just in the beginning. Things will sure be different when we start and finish, hopefully.

    Let me know what do you think?
    Bottom Line: Create a system that is even lighter than Lubuntu and much simpler. However, it is not a good option for NEW comers to Linux!

    I am looking forward to hear from you.

    The name might not be Mini Lubuntu. We (in case we will have a team working on this project) may not use LXDE or the same packages in Lubuntu. I'm not yet sure. This is just the beginning!

    Thanks!

    Not unlike something my friend did about 3 years ago. "Robin's Remix" was a minimal Ubuntu (9.04) with LXDE on top, and all lightweight applications. We used it at the dance school on a really old computer and no one knew it was Linux. A teacher thought it was Windows 98. It was really fast for such an old run-down computer.

    Welcome to Ubuntu Forums, my friend
    Good to see you here!

    Hmm, that is the default for AntiX - http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=antiX - and I have never heard about pekwm!

    Do you have any experience with IceWM? last time I used AntiX was 3 years ago, I guess

    IceWM is a Window Manager so does it need a DE or it will work as a DE and as a WM too?

    Thanks for posting and enjoy Ubuntu Forums

    also it's runnign some services that are sort of standard on latest mashicnes but do not exists on older ones. while in debian you need to turn them on or install separatelly.
