Re: Toshiba NB100-11R


[re: micksharpe] [link to this post]
 
I use Xubuntu (Ubuntu with xfce) at work and Debian with xfce at home.

I always did prefer KDE to gnome, but find XFCE far more usable than either. That said it does need some tweeks to get it just right (often including installing gnome and/or kde libaries to get some stuff working) making it less suitable for a newbie than KDE Gnome or Unity (which I can't stand)

I ended up installing Mint Linux (derived from Ubuntu, with all the codecs etc included) on that netbook, then added the XFCE to add, even though Gnome 3 works fine, too. Mint Linux recognises all the hardware, including the onboard Atheros WiFi, the web camera etc. WiFi only kicks in when its turned on via FN-F1 on the keyboard, a red light at the bottom of the track pad indicates when it's on.
