Ubuntu :: Replace System Netbook 10.10 With Desktop 10.04?

Apr 4, 2011

I have netbook 10.10 installed on a Acer Aspire One on part of the disk and Windows 7 on another part. (There is no information worth saving in the 10.10 "home" file.)

Can I just install Ubuntu 10.04 as if I were doing it for the first time (as I did with netbook 10.10)? Will 10.04 simply replace 10.10?

Ubuntu :: Replace Desktop With A GUI Shell?

Aug 13, 2010

I would like to configure my Ubuntu as to start Gnome without a Desktop; instead, I would like to have a graphical shell taking the whole screen, but keeping all the other functionalities of the GUI.

It doesn't really have to be Gnome - I would gladly take any GUI with the above-mentioned description that would open Firefox, Amaya and Calibre.

I am trying to save some memory with a feeble Acer Aspire One that is solely used for browsing the web (Firefox), editing webpages (Amaya), and creating .mobi files.

how to replace the Desktop with a shell or taking a different approach?

P.S.: I looked at the Ubuntu Netbook Remix and the soon-to-be-released Gnome Shell, but they are not what I am looking for!

Ubuntu :: Differences Between Netbook And Desktop

Feb 13, 2010

what the actual differences are between the different versions?Is it simply in the interface or does netbook have different services running by default, different hardware detection or anything else that makes the system run any differently? I know netbook doesn't have compiz installed by default but is the rest of the package set the same? I ask because I have been having various problems with boot and audio along with a few other niggles. I was running the desktop edition through the betas and the RC with no problems at all but I installed lucid final from a netbook edition iso and have done two more fresh installs from netbook iso and seem to be having a lot more issues.

Ubuntu :: Adding Folders On Netbook Desktop?

Jun 4, 2010

Basically in the files and folders section on the netbook edition desktop i would like to add another folder (my dropbox folder)

I think i read somewhere that you had to bookmark it or something but i dont know how to do that.

I suppose its the same as adding a folder to the files and folder menu on any normal distribution of ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: EeePC Netbook Remix Or Desktop?

Sep 14, 2010

I just bought an Asus EeePC 1201PN and am planning on installing Ubuntu on it. I prefer the traditional desktop interface and thus would like to install it. I have read accounts of people having no problems with it on the 1201N and am assuming it will be the same for my netbook.My question is is there really any difference if I install the Netbook Remix Edition then get the Desktop-Switcher and change it to the traditional interface? I heard that the NRE doesn't use Nautilus. If I install NRE then use the Desktop-Switcher will I be able to use Nautilus or will it still be the NRE with everything else to "optimize" the netbook's performance?

Would it be possible to install the Desktop Edition then get repositories for things that will help my netbook perform better?

Ubuntu :: Trying To Install Netbook But Get Desktop Version

Nov 23, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.10 on my Acer Aspire One A0751h, but when I boot from my USB drive (I have multiboot ISO) I only get Ubuntu Desktop 10.10. I've tried the same USB drive on two other laptops - one netbook and one mobil workstation - and both of them boot into the Netbook Remix. Is there any rational reason for this or???

Ubuntu :: Upgrade Netbook Version To Desktop?

Jan 3, 2011

I am making the switch to Linux and I really love Ubuntu. My DVD player isn't working, so I'm using my flash drive. It was too small for the desktop installer, so I used the netbook. I'm installing it as I type this (having the browser thats available for browsing while installing is awesome!)

Is there a way to upgrade to move to the desktop version after I finish? Also, what's the difference between the two. Links are fine. I tried google, but my google-fu must not be too strong today.

Ubuntu Networking :: Using Synergy Between My Desktop And My Netbook

May 23, 2011

I'm having some serious issues using Synergy between my desktop and my netbook. Both are running Ubuntu 11.04.

I installed quicksynergy from the software center and everything started ok. I wanted my desktop to be the server, I opened quick synergy and put in the IP address of my netbook, which I got from connection infromation>IP address, then hit execute and close. Next on the netbook, I opened quick synergy put in my desktop's IP address (acquired from the same location) in the "Server hostname/IP address:" box and my netbook's name in the "Screen name:" box. I hit execute and close.

Now when I move my cursor from the right side of my desktop's screen where it should move over to the netbook, the cursor jumps to the middle of the screen on the desktop and does nothing to the netbook.

Ubuntu :: Can't Convert Standard 9.10 Desktop Into Netbook Remix?

Feb 17, 2010

I have been trying to convert my standard 9.10 desktop installation into the Netbook Remix version.I assumed that all I had to do was add ´┐ŻNetbook Remix Launcher´┐Ż from synaptic and set it run at startupAccording to the Wiki these are the packages that constitute the UNR:Desktop Switcher - Allows the user to switch between two desktop modes. Currently supports switching between Ubuntu Netbook Remix mode and "Classic Ubuntu" (two panels, gnome-like) mode.

Go Home Applet - A gnome-panel applet that, when clicked upon, displays the desktop. Used in a netbook-based desktop, the desktop-window will normally be the launcher. Go Home Applet also works in conjunction with the netbook-remix-launcher whereby dragging and dropping a file/url/application to the go-home-applet will automatically add it to the launcher's favorites section. Human Netbook Theme - A gtk theme for use with Ubuntu Netbook Remix Maximus - A desktop daemon which will automatically maximise and, optionally, un-decorate windows. Has support for exclusion lists and will work with any EWMH-spec compliant window-manager.

Ubuntu Netbook Remix Launcher - An easy-to-useprogram/places/favourites launcher which resides on the desktop, replacing the main-menu. indow Picker Applet - A gnome-panel applet that displays open windows as icons on the panel, and has integrated window title-bar functionality. Optimised for use on netbook-size screensNone of them seem like dependencies for the Ubuntu Netbook Remix Launcher itself, so I cant understand why it isnt working. Ive turned of compiz and disabled AWN.

Ubuntu :: Netbook Plasma Desktop And Running Applications

Mar 20, 2011

When i run the KDE 4.6.1 netbook plasma desktop, there's a icon in the right upper corner telling how many applications i've running. When I click it, the desktop zooms out and shows me the applications in a graphical way, wich is pretty nice....but...then i can not select an application to switch to and have to wait a certain time out to go back to the running program i had in the foreground allready.

When i change the settings of this icon to show it always in a menu, it does work allright (but is less nice)..

Ubuntu Servers :: Replace Hard Drives But Keep System?

Jan 26, 2011

Our company just bought faster hard drives for our webserver. A lot of the software and services set up on this machine have had config files set up, etc.. It would take a while to rebuild it from scratch, which i may have to do. I know most config files are in /etc and i can use apt to spit out a list of installed packages.

Any tips that i may want to know to avoid any gotchas here? We need to minimize downtime, of course, and get everything up like it is now.
