Re: Share with us your Trusty (14.04) Upgrade & Installation Experiences
My daughter prohibited (rightly so) my 2 grandkids from using their Win XP computer (dedicated for kids use)! Since school's about to start (one 7th grader the other 4th) she asked me for help.
She didn't want to spend any money so I decided to help her out - not with money but with time!
The HP Pavillion a1130n accepted Ubuntu 14.04.1 (32 bit) readily.
- wireless keyboard and mouse worked flawlessly.
- wireless interface connected to the internet first time.
- kids game and education site worked after Iinstalled Chromium and pepper flash
- installed gnome flashback (hardware barely supported 3d)
Now the kids have the fastest response PC in the household!
