    Re: Things that you dislike in Ubuntu

    It annoys me that Ubuntu doesn't have great infraRed support.
    I can enable it, but it means shutting down my Wacom or Ethernet port and rebooting.

    The clipart feel to the graphics have to be my main gripe. Ubuntu does okay in its core apps, but so many third parties have failed to match up.

    So far this isn't much to like with exception of the incredibly slow usb hard drive and pen drive speeds. I cannot transfer faster than 1.5mb/sec. I upgraded from lucid and now my usb performance is painful.

    Unity, Especially with the Amazon integration, it just feels...... bad in a "free" enviroment.

    I hate the fact that Foxit pdf reader doesn't work, nor does it have an equivalent.

    That's just you. Mine is faster under Ubuntu 12.04 (5 Mb/s) than "Windows" (yar) 7 (1.5 Mb/s). My test sample is a statistically relevant 20 gigs, the test eminently recent, as in yesterday.

    There's your problem. Newer does not mean better.
    Windows crossed the line first.
    It squeezed me, it hammered me to the point of desperation.
    And in my desperation I turned to an OS I didn't fully understand.
    With respect, sir, perhaps this is an OS that *you* don't fully understand.

    I do agree with this, though a lot of newer 3rd party applications are getting really nice icons. (Polly for example)

    Unfriendly installation system for slow internet connection.

    Package management. Especially the fact that, it is very hard to save the .deb files for offline installation on other computers.

    You can use:

    Code:
    apt-get -d <option>
    Synaptic packae manager also allows you to download packages only without installing them.

    During regular usage when installing or upgrading, all packages are stored in /var/cache/apt/archives. I'm running Saucy, which is still in development, and I normally do two updates a day, my /var/cache/apt/archives directory currently contains about 780MiB of packages.

    ....and something similar is the "--print-uris" option with apt-get :
    Code:
    apt-get install --print-uris <whatever you have to install>
    Instead of downloading and installing, it prints the download URIs of all the packages (target(s) + dependencies) which can be used on another computer to manually download the packages, then install them with "dpkg -i *". Very useful for target computers which have no or too slow connection.

    For using packages already downloaded with apt or synaptic or USC, AptOnCD can be used.

    There are many ways to get it done, but these are probably the easiest ones.
