This happens even if I use the Halt button in the System menu. The only way I can shutdown is to use the Terminal. I tried installing another Panel but they all disappear when the Halt button is clicked

Try version 12.04, either of these flavours (try a live session booted from a CD or USB drive)

- Lubuntu 12.04 desktop with the ultra light desktop environment LXDE supported until October 2013

- Xubuntu 12.04 LTS desktop with the light desktop environment XFCE, supported until April 2015

Check (running the live session) if your cpu supports pae with the following command


gksudo lshw|grep -i --colour pae
If it prints a text string including pae (high-lighted if --colour works), then you have pae, and can also run

- Lubuntu 12.10 which is supported until April 2014.

I am currently trying Lubuntu 12.1. It's as slow as a wet week!

Thread moved to General Help.

12.04 LTS is the current LTS release. Stable, supported until April 2017 and should be an improvement. Some users have reported 12.10 being slow on their hardware.

Then please try Lubuntu 12.04. It is quite nice on my aging hardware and it is lightning fast on my newer hardware.

I agree with Bucky Ball: If problems with 12.10, use 12.04 :-)
