Best Linux for Dell Dimension 2350 (users opinion)
Stock Dell Dimention 2350
Added 1GB ram
Added DVD Burner Drive
This is the post I wish I had read before trying all the distrobutions that I tried
All the Distros I tried had same problem Video Looked Terrible the os would "work" it was just ugley
This applied to any flavor of 13.10 I tried.
I could fix the way it lookd with the creation of the ????.conf file
then Dimension 2350 would not resume Tried S3 and S1 settings in BIOS.
Got great advice (as usual)from many people on here they directed me to Distrobutions for Old Old machines like the Dimension 2350
Linux Lite OS 1.0.6 worked great out of the box. video, resume,
LIVE USER: Login to the live desktop is automatic
BASE: Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
I am not sure why since it uses ubuntu as well.
had to manually install lite user manager and lite Software manager some how they did not get packaged.
I modded it with
Libre office, Banshee, shotwell, weather app
VLC does not autoplay DVD's have to swich to the Device tab and select the Drive but then it plays
tried tux cart for kicks (NOPE!) Unistalled it
