I've got an HP 2133 mininote with Ubuntu 8.04 on it. Gnome runs VERY slowly on that machine, so I'd like to replace it with Fluxbox, which I've gotten to know from Fluxbuntu. I'd also like to replace Nautilus with Thunar.
Does anyone have any advice for me? From what I gather I should just download the Fluxbox and Thunar packages via Synaptec, but I want some confirmation on this before I muck about in there.
I'm also wondering if I need to change any configuration files after I install those packages.
Any advice from those who've done something similar is appreciated.
