Oh god. Those were my thoughts too. But then why would he come out of the cave? JK.

I honestly don't know what to tell you Bass; I've had the inverse problems where drivers and the DE of Gnome wouldn't work and all I did was install Ubuntu. I can't say for certain going Kubuntu to Ubuntu will change anything about getting those GPU drivers to work. You'd have better chances moving to Fedora or opensuse's KDE spins to hope that the drivers work. Maybe they have different stables or just a slight difference of organization that miraculously makes things works. If you got the time, why not try it out?

What is the difference in Gnome vs KDE? Is it purely what it looks like, or does it change some of the commands you can do (non-KDE or Gnome related) in the terminal?

I guess I could try Opensuse and/or Fedora.

I has ChromeOS. On it right now, actually.

DE's simply change a little on what programs need to work. Hence why you have programs that require Gnome or it's parts and others that require KDE or it's parts. They shouldn't effect commands since those are kernel and build based (if I understand it correctly). But ultimately the thing most people will notice is simply the difference in looks.

I'd go with Fedora first right now since there will be a new release of opensuse within 10 days. opensuse however I do find to be extremely user friendly if that's what you're going for. The one click install method from their download page for searching packages is nice. Takes care of everything for you.

I'm jealous you got a chrome netbook. I wanted one badly.

I see. So if I get Ubuntu, then switch it to KDE, I would also have to get rid of all Gnome based programs, or would it do that automatically?

Alright. I'll download that when I leave for my class in a bit. I don't really care for user friendly-ness, I mean I use Windows.
But I'll probably try out Opensuse as well, after the new release.

I love it! But my school's wireless has an SSL protocol, and it hates that. Doesn't always work, so I have to use 3G. :/

Just that AMD is going to have to cater to more than JUST linux. The ChromeOS is based off linux. I'm guessing the linux drivers work for it, you should be able to figure out how that is important. The more speed Android and ChromeOS get because of google the more important it will become. If the ChromeOS takes off in the netbook market as a cloud solution AMD will lose on oppertunity. It's just another spin on the idea of AMD lacking in the FOSS market.

To the problem, the fglrx won't (or at least shouldn't) work any better or worse because he is using Ubuntu. Kbuntu/Xubuntu/ect... all use the same kernels. If he wants to get more progress he will need to play with version numbers, like use 10.04 instead of 10.10, or use 10.10 instead of 10.04. Maybe he will get better options with 11.04, that's what he will have to do instead of get Ubuntu and install KDE. Think of it this way, they all share the same kernel versions. What does the module load into? They also use different software revisions for the different releases, using GCC 4.4 instead of GCC 4.1, think more along the lines of what makes the system run.

Using different distro's might help, different kernel patches and tool chains. So I would suggest playing around with different distro's and/or different distro revisions. Kubuntu IS Ubuntu, the core hardware features shouldn't (note shouldn't) be affected in this way.

Whoo. Just installed Fedora 14. I'm liking it so much better than *Buntu so far. Mouse issues are gone. Now just to fix the drivers...

I have a feeling it will work this time.

So, I've spent a little time in the terminal, and I can't use the sudo command. I can't/don't know how to edit the sudoers file, and I need to use sudo to install flash (for chrome). :/

I really hope the drivers work. I am really liking Fedora so far. My favorite distro yet.
post #20 of 72
You don't need sudo for flash, download it from the official site and extract it to ~/.mozilla/plugins I believe. You should NEVER need root privileges for flash. I never recommend installing through the package manager with flash, just because it keeps it all in user space the normal way. User space is good, it is very good.
