Installed Ubuntu Lucid Lynx

  • 0

Took me awhile to get it working due to a newer version of GRUB -which I took for granted as always working.

My reason for going through boot loader hell was to look at Ubuntu's new 'me menu' and look at Gnome improvements.
The me menu is just a front end to empathy and gwibber. Ubuntu's Gnome is slower than I remember, way more sluggish and unresponsive than Debian Lenny Gnome environment. All that said, the colour scheme is nice -no more brown.

I think this is the first big distribution I've installed where gimp isn't installed by default. Which is odd and not helpful.

Nvidia Video drivers installed with ease.

Wanting a faster environment I set up lxde and compiz. Geekness.
