Actually just installed it on my laptop which is still using my Arch image and XMonad, just need to make it work with my chat workspace which will be easy. Just need time, such a precious thing lately frown.gif
"chat workspace"?

Keeps the main client separated ( in this case the "friends" window, by setting it as master permanently ) from the rest of the grid tongue.gif
Code:

|   |  +  +  +
|   |  +  +  +
|   |  +  +  +
|   |  +  +  +
|   |  +  +  +


And I just get used to calling it a workspace even though no work is done tongue.gif

Most distributions will install all of the dependencies just fine. Some require you to manually install ia32-libs. But Ubuntu installs everything needed ( I used it for about a week when I built my new rig ), so does Mint. Fedora requires a little work and that will frustrate you with SELinux and require you to su -c "setsebool -P allow_execheap 1" as Steam uses heap memory which is pretty improper and SELinux by default does not allow it. Arch installs everything needed last time I installed it from the AUR.
Plan9 and Shrak, forgive me for know nothing about Ubuntu at all, Due, I'm new to Ubuntu.. However I picked up many new things, and a small Package 32bit installed on UBU 64bit OS after read your posts. See a screenshot below -



WOOOT! Plan9 and Shrak, Many thanks!

Thanks for mentioning that, i was gonna say i'm running 64 bit and i have no problems. my distro (Lubuntu) comes with different packages pre installed though.

i did have a problem where by steam would just close with no warning but that was when i was opted into a beta.

CS is running great, trine 2 is great, and a few other non too demanding 2d games are exactly the same like don't starve.

So overall its good, haven't yet tried left4dead2 beta but that's more because its a 10gig download.

I agree i have noticed it doesn't mind being on a mechanical drive. maybe i might pick up used a WD Raptor or if the 320+gb SSD comes really really cheap might pick that up instead.

i promise once i take a break form OS x i will play around with my themes in Lubuntu and take a screen shot.

Okay, I'm done with Gnome 3. I will go back to Xfce. Sorry Gnome-lovers. :/

The paradigm just never clicked. I sat and thought "I guess this could work", but then I touched a Windows system and I remembered how "un-broken" the old paradigm really is. Why struggle with something that's not superior, only different?

What version specifically? 3.4 / 3.6 were flat out broke but 3.8 is when it became a bit better for me tongue.gif

Did you use any extensions? They can really add a huge difference. Old menu instead of the stock full screen one, moving the clock over, window list instead of just the currently active window name/menu and more.
post #5420 of 7733

To be fair, Gnome 3 (even the latest version and all its shiny extensions) is still a bit rough around the edges for anyone expecting a "classic" desktop experience.
