It was none other than mörgæs (thanks again!) who prompted me to look at other *buntu distros in order get off Jaunty 9.04 which is what I'm stuck on at the moment.
Later Ubuntus have given me network trouble (why?!); and after waiting expectently for Xubuntu 11.10, I get a serious "random hangs" problem with it. So I tried Lubuntu live disk this morning. Worked all morning with it flawlessly! Hurrah!
I haven't installed it yet (will wait till I have a bit more time for that!), but I would be interested to know about:
- any tips/tricks/issues with installing Wine under Lubuntu? (It's a "must" for me, I'm afraid.)
- I thought there was a package that provides the "free closed source" things (multi-media, codecs, etc.) in one go, but can't find it now; is this available for Lubuntu?
- I've used this guide for installing fonts in 9.04 - is there any difference for Lubuntu?
Thanks for this!
