  1. Re: Linux is the slowest OS I have ever used on any machine.

    What I find with dual boot of Linux and Windows on the same machine is that W7 presents the login screen in less time than Linux but when it comes to getting a usable desktop its a totally different...
  2. Re: What is the real reason that Google Earth won't install in Ubuntu 13.10 anyway?

    May depend on which graphics driver you are using. I get the same symptoms as the other poster where it works about one time in ten but otherwise crashes shortly after starting. I'm using nvidia blob

    The port forward will not deal with pings. The port forward will specify tcp port 22 (or a specified alternative tcp port). Ping uses icmp protocol which is quite different.

  8. [SOLVED] Re: Burning an ISO onto cd using ubuntu (Brasero)

    Good point. The LTS version (12.04) will fit on a CD but more recent versions require a DVD. It may be better to set up a bootable USB thumb drive via unetbootin.

    Re: Graphical CD/DVD Burning

    I prefer k3b as well but if the op didn't like gnome dependencies, he probably wont like KDE dependencies either. k3b will also require qt. May be better off using command line tools like mkisofs.

    Re: Software Manager

    You can update directly from 10.04 to 12.04 (lts to lts). Doesn't really matter if /home is on a separate partition or not. The main thing is that /home is backed up in case the upgrade breaks.
