I recently installed Unbuntu Netbook edition on well my Netbook and it works all fine but I notice when I turn on my Netbook it will hang on a black screen where I cant manipulate anything except hit return a few times. It finally loads after a minute or two and Ubuntu works fine afterwords.
Is this normal? I am pretty new to Ubuntu and Linux in general.
I have been setting up a box now and have it configured with everything I need and is running great.I would like to test out the netbook remix edition is there a way to install the desktop environment along site with Gnome (like I use to do with KDE)Would be great so I wouldn't have to re-configure drivers and such.To be able to switch from Gnome environment to Netbook remix environment.I am running Ubuntu 10.04.
I am having trouble installing Ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix edition onto a Acer Aspire one netbook. I am attempting to install the OS from a 16GB PNY usb drive w/ the usb-universal installer and ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix .ISO
The reoccurring problem that I am encountering is that when I boot from the USB-drive and begin to install everything seems to be working, and then it is stuck at the menu where it asks who are you?; and of course i have filled in everything asked and at the bottom where you can look at what its doing in the terminal/detail section all it says is ready when you are, and the forward tap is unselectable.
I would like to know if I could burn Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition with a CD-R & not use my flash-drive for install. Has anyone used a CD-R & Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition to install on a new hard drive? How come it ask you to use a flash drive & not a CD-R?
I have a netbook running Ubuntu Lucid. Is there a way to try out the netbook interface without actually changing the whole installation. I have a separate home but still would like to try it 1st. I tried as an install it a few versions back and hated it but it seems a lot improved with 10.04.
So, I was wondering if I can replace my 10.10 desktop edition with Netbook edition? I loved the interface of Netbook edition, so I want to get. If get it on my normal laptop, will there be any problems? Can I install, Apache or Nginx on it? What are the main differences between them?
am trying to install netbook edition on nb205. i get the error (process:316) : GLib-WARNING **: getpwuid_r(): failed due to unkown user id (0) I am installing the latest netbook edition off of ubuntu.com.
the title pretty much says it all, is there at this point in time (december 2010) still a place where I could download ubuntu netbook edition 10.04? I want to do that because I think it looks better and more importantly, it uses compiz.
I recently been given my dad's old netbook which is a toshiba nb100
I installed Ubuntu Netbook Edition onto it as i have some experiance with linux and have used ubuntu before and thought it would speed up this little machine. After the initial grind of the instal, it seemed to be running fine, however i didnt really like the netbook layout.
I noticed on the log in screen that i could select the desktop or netbook edition, is that normal? i have been using the desktop version since.
I have been doing some research however into the 11.04 release that is almost ready, and is ready in alpha stages. And what i understand is that the netbook layout is called Unity, and will be replacing gnome.
If and when i upgrade to 11.04, if i upgrade on the netbook login, will it replace both the logins i have access to currently, because the ubuntu install is changed and that was basically just choosing which display to use, unity or gnome. is that right?
Also i heard that for the 11.10 release they will be bringing the gnome desktop back? and that ubuntu netbook edition is being scrapped as they are basically merging
At the moment i prefer the desktop layout as i know where to access everything, although im sure i could get used to Unity, if its not too graphically demanding.
Either way i think i will wait till the end of april to upgrade to 11.04 as this laptop is fairly slow to begin with.
On the Ubuntu website, under the alternate downloads, there is a link for 11.04 netbook torrent download but clicking on the link gives an "unobtainable" message. On the "error" page, Chromium provided a link to the ubuntu page with all the 11.04 versions and checking through those there is not a netbook version.
Does this mean that there will be no netbook version of 11.04 and the desktop version will be OK on a netbook or is it simply that it is not available yet? I am intending to upgrade my current Acer Aspire One to 11.04 and am considering a clean install rather than upgrading via the update manager. I have downloaded the desktop version just in case.
How can I install Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 to a USB drive so I can run it on any computer. I want the full version of it on my USB drive not just the live CD version.I want to use Ubuntu on my school computers.Basically, I wanted a 100% portable UNE that saves all settings, data, programs, etc and is still as fast as possible for a USB.
I am running Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 on my netbook.
I noticed this version has the ability to switch between desktop environments such as Gnome Desktop and the Netbook Edition UI. When I am in Gnome, I really love using CPU Frequency Monitor available for the Gnome top panel.
My question is: Can I use the CPU Frequency Monitor in the Netbook Edition? If so, How?
I'm trying to install Ubuntu Netbook Edition on my Asus Eee PC 1015 netbook (running Windows 7 starter) using wubi, but it fails to install every time. Wubi will download the torrent, download the .iso, then tell me it "cannot retrieve the required installation files." I have also tried manually downloading the .iso and placing it in the same folder as wubi, but it fails to validate the file and begins downloading the torrent.
Just to check, I tried using wubi to install Ubuntu 10.4 and had no problems at all.
On UNE, for example a Firefox Window is opened in workspace 1. I'd like to have a new Firefox window on workspace 2. But when I switch to workspace 2 and hit the Firefox Icon in the left launcher panel, it only brings me back to the running instance of Firefox on the first workspace.So what is an easy way to have a second Firefox Window on the second workspace?
i am currently using ubuntu 10.10 desktop edition and i recently noticed the net book edition option in the login screen. i googled a bit on it an liked the screenshots. so decided to give it a try. i dunno what the problem is but after i login, i just get a plain screen ( no application panel or the side panel )but the options work.. i just don't see them on the screen. like when i click on the left top corner, i get the proper window and i can start apps from it.. i just cant see the panel or the side bar. and the other problem is that after any app is launched, i wont get the title bar also.. btw, here is a screenshot of the desktop. notice the bands at the top and the side. those are supposed to be my panels.. but no icons. if i click on the extreme top left i get the menu for selecting options like web music etc.

I have an Asus 1018p with Ubuntu netbook version installed, and I wanted to upgrade the ram. With Windows 7 Starter, the maximum ram supported for this machine is 2 gb, and I was wondering whether the amount of ram supported by Ubuntu would be the same, or if it would be different. Also, if it's different, how would I go about finding out how much ram i could put in?

How to browse the network with Ubuntu Netbook Edition? In the destop edition I just go to 'Places - Network' and I'm good to go, but for the life of me I can't find anything that will allow me to do this in the netbook edition.
I've just unwrapped my new netbook. Its got the new Atom N450 processor and the first thing I want to do is get XP home off of it. I'm just wondering if I should install 9.10 full or download the "netbook edition". Whats the difference? Will I see better performance with the netbook or full edition? (just asking because I'd like to avoid the ~650mb download if I can)
I am starting this thread to get other folks opinions regarding gnome-panel and and Ubuntu Netbook Edition. This post is follows on from here: [URL] I cannot believe that the gnome-panel is now locked down in the Netbook Edition. I have read (via google) many ways to "fix" this issue but I am particularly disappointed with the situation. I use the Netbook Edition on an eeepc 1000. The first thing I do after installing is uninstall maximus, remove the Window Picker applet, and replace them with gnome-globalmenu and dockbarx. This gives me a pretty awesome experience that allows me to combat the low vertical resolution.
After reading this: [URL] I am even more disappointed. If gnome-panel is buggy and you don't have time to fix the issue prior to the release then why are we "swapping" bugs? This is total regression and calling it a 'design decision' does not change that fact one bit. What's next?.. Trash won't empty... we'll say its by design --- All nautilus windows are read only... Don't worry its deliberate, but GIMP is working! --- firefox burns your freaking house down while screwing your wife... (you get my point?)
