Hey all, I just installed ubuntu, this is the first linux ive ever run, I heard ubunutu was quite popular so I went with this one. Im coming from Windows Vista.
Ubuntu seems to be filled with useful programs, i really liked the terminal server client that comes with it.
I am finding linux a lot harder to use in most areas, especially screen resolution. It would only let me have 1024x768 at first, I had to do lots of reading and modify the xorg.conf file to try and get my monitors intended 1680x1050, i managed to get it to 1600x1200, still not what i wanted but its bearable until i learn more.
I have 7.04 (downloaded it along time ago and didnt bother installing until now), and im trying to upgrade to 7.10 that the updater recommends, however it keeps getting stuck on file 15/24 and doesnt upgrade.
I want to get Compiz and Kiba dock working like in all the videos ive seen.
Ive had ubuntu completely lock up and require a hard reboot already once. I was trying to chose a screensaver to use, I had to end up putting just a blank screen so the computer wouldent lock up.
I like it a lot so far, but I have to say, it seems buggier then windows so far.
