I got my hardy disc today, I think it is Gnome based, in your opinion is gnome is good or KDE 4 better?

is a KDE 4 based version available for download, in ubuntu or any other distro, maybe fedeora or OpenSuse, also out the 2 which is good a casual user who wants his computer to work with least hassles :?:

thank you.

Resistance is Futile.
At this moment of time, KDE 3.5.x >>> KDE4.

ABout KDE vs GNOME, well IMO KDE.
If you do want to try KDE, I'd suggest you get Fedora 9 Live, the KDE version.

Im using both Gnome and KDE4 on 64 bit Ubuntu HH. Definitely Gnome is much more stable. I seem to crash out of Konqueror if I use anything related to Flash and I have this weird sigserv error on shutting down . Although it just shows an error message and goes away. other than that I found KDE ot be ok.

ok installed, display is a mess - no surprise, but they have certainly made a huge huge improvement for multi booters like me, last timer around i had enter the sda & hdd nos. which is confusing, now they have a drop down giving the partition nos.

oh i also noticed they vista like translucent window borders :D thats surprising. never the less, booting is taking ~25 seconds from the time i press generic something to the login screen, something which u guys might be able to tell me is ok or no.

where can I find Intel 865gbf display drivers?

^^ Intel Drivers are in built into the kernel.. What exactly is the problem you are facing with the display?

^^ Since compiz is running (he mentioned translucent windows), i believe the intel driver is already in use :)

I must be imagining things. iMav using Linux!

If we can get such hardcore MS fans to Linux, then Linux is really the future!

P.S: On a second thought, Linux was always the future. :)

^ Do "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg" and select your resolutions there. Then logout and login again. Try if that changes anything.

just one question, did u save the xorf.conf from ur last installation of gutsy.

Always backup xorg.conf, u just hav to overwrite to get things normal.

Btw if u want to configure it by point and click then go to :

  • /usr/share/applications

  • and launch "screen and graphics"

  • choose the desired monitor and graphics driver :)

Hope it helps this way.

else there is manual way too :D
