    Help ex put linux on my laptop and now it doesnt work

    Watching topic to see reaction of a new user to a working Linux system. It feels like Christmas in June !

    Solus vs Manjaro

    @lekkerlinux Ok the before mentioned Laptop I just picked up today did not like Solus KDE at all, I know Solus Budgie will run on it because the teeny weeny notebook runs Solus Budgie without a hitch and it is well below the suggested minimum requirements. I would pick 1 of the 3 stable DE's of...

    I did not know that - old dog learned a new trick.

    Solus vs Manjaro

    See if I am close to your question about 0 A.D. and Solus, is this by chance the game ? If so it is in Software Center then inside Games.

    Solus vs Manjaro

    Give me until tomorrow and I can tell you as I am writing this reply I am burning the Solus KDE to USB so I can take it for a test drive on a 1.2 gig dual core with 4 gig of DDR 2 Ram. If that can run it there should be no trouble running on most all 64 bit platforms. As far as the sizes all of...

    Solus vs Manjaro

    Ok I just did a quick Google and Wikipedia search for 0 ad - it actually has a Linux version. Regardless of which 4 DE in Solus you pick they all auto update everything Friday for me it is Friday morning due the devs all live in Europe and I am 6 hours behind them. All the software that can be...

    Solus vs Manjaro

    Oh I forgot - only because I have not used it. The repository has Lutris and WINE that can be installed to game with.

    Solus vs Manjaro

    wizardfromoz is correct all I run now is Solus. / / / Technical humm I would not call myself technical at all, with that I will cover most of mine as quick as I can while giving a bit of background on my computers specs. Hope this helps and does not create confusion. By default - I mean point...

    Fooling someone with Linux

    I have found it to be a daunting task with such a small Notebook / Laptop with very minimal hardware to get some to even read and install from the USB for some of the ISO Distros I tried, a few would not even try to do an install. Not sure what was the trouble with some, there was a couple...

    Fooling someone with Linux

    Ahh ok good to know for future - so far nothing is working great. Sadly enough. Have gotten great and knowing how long a download will take / how long it will take to write the ISO to USB. I have not tried any of the Debian or anything that needs above a dual core 1.3 processor . Figured why...

    Fooling someone with Linux

    Yea I thought maybe it was my own bias towards KDE - the appearance is nice but too system resource hungry to be of use on this little kraptop. Takes what seems like dial up time to load a webpage, it does not like anything on youtube, or streaming any content. Time to stick another distro on here.

    Fooling someone with Linux

    Yeah I am thinking of giving up on the Windows Faux idea at least until I find a distro that is stable and easy to use. As of this writing I am working my way down the Ubuntu ladder going backwards through the distros, I am now back at Kubuntu 18.0.4 LTS / if K don't work I will install Lubuntu...

    Fooling someone with Linux

    Well so far striking out with this little laptop, not sure if it is a lack of good hardware or just a conflict with the old Win 7 components. Tried a few different variations of Ubuntu have not found the sweet spot, There has got to be 1 out there some place to make it happy. I feel like it is...

    Fooling someone with Linux

    Appreciate the tips and helps ... with this guys. Just noticed the time I have to get to work, I'll finish this when I get back home. This looks to be enough to at least get them to try an attempt to use it. I think I will still wait to tell them it is actually not what they think it is.

    Fooling someone with Linux

    The problem is they will suddenly not be interested in a computer once they see I have Linux installed or hear I have Linux running. By avoid it - I mean like a 6 year to eat cauliflower, or broccoli avoid it.

    Fooling someone with Linux

    I have a paradox of sorts .............. Since I have computers with Linux already, this will be taking myself out of the equations for the purpose of an unfamiliar user on Linux to let them think they are using something else instead of Linux. Everyone that comes to our home with the exception...

    I still can't decide which distro to choose

    An update since I have been slacking .......... At the time of making the first post had no idea of a rolling distro, now after messing around with a few different linux it makes sense what a rolling distro is. Still using the Linux Solus with the desktop ( DE Budgie ) - - - Solus when I first...
