    I have an old dual boot install I'll get rid of one of these days, meanwhile happy enough running from USB drive. Thanks Warren Hill for the link - it's where I would start.

    [ubuntu] Re: xubuntu? ubuntu?

    There are two reasons to prefer one or the other: Ubuntu with Unity interface is a) an acquired taste and b) is more demanding on low powered equipment. I'd say, if your machine runs Windows 7...

    It sounds like you are in a Microsoft Office environment. I think that I and everybody else assumed you have to be on Ubuntu. If you can run Windows and install MS Office, you can get a functioning...

    [ubuntu] Re: Chromium requesting password

    I'd also appreciate details on it - I'm using both Chromium and Firefox on both 12.04 and 13.04 XFCE (on Live USB) and only Chromium has this behavior of bringing up a password dialog. It can be...

    Re: video problem with google chrome

    Running Mint 13 (Ubuntu 12.04) I'd thought it was a Mint problem. Got the speckles in Chrome, but not Firefox, so I advanced to Chrome Dev version 27 without luck. I should say that running Chrome...

    Somebody might have a technical suggestion. I'd say create another stick with another version of Ubuntu or Mint and start over - possibly the LTS version 12.04. I've had several Ubuntu and spin-off...

    Sounds like you'll be fine. The one question I'd have is whether Lubuntu 12.04 is also an "LTS" version like Ubuntu 12.04 - a quick google suggests not, and that means OS and software updates will...
