Xubuntu 9.04

Thursday April 23, 2009 15:22

I favor Xubuntu over Ubuntu, because I think XFCE is much better than Gnome.

Installed on:

  • Asus P5N7A-VM mobo
  • On board NVidia 9300
  • Intel Q9400 quad core
  • 4GB PC6400

  • Network: PASS
  • Audio: PASS
  • UDMA IDE: PASS

Cool

  • NVidia drivers installed by using a hardware menu option

Fidgety

  • manually adding stuff to xorg.conf: swapping caps lock/control keys, mouse emulate 3 buttons.

Showstoppers

  • Synaptic search function broken out of the box? I ran sudo apt-update-something something (forget) to fix it.

Bugs

  • vnc4server doesn't work, incompatible with installed version of X. Previous release was crashing. Ubuntu people must not usually vnc into active desktops. Next beta release, I'm testing this feature, because I'm fed up with this not working time and again.
