Anyway, for some reason I really like Slitaz, despite it being pretty useless to me. It's a bitch to get power saving stuff on laptops to work. And everything else. This is it from a VM.

Haven't posted a screenshot in awhile. I've been waiting on a replacement drive for my rig so I've had to dip into my old parts stash to get something up and running for the last week or so. Currently running Xubuntu 14.04 on an old ASUS P5GD2 with a 3.2GHz Pentium 4 and 2GB's of Ram. Runs pretty decent for an older setup. Although...it is stuttering with 1080p.

Just moved out from Linux Mint 17 MATE and installed Debian 7.7.0 XFCE.

Linux Mint was great but I could not align my desktop icons to a grid and I like things perfectly aligned, now the torture is finally over.

Just finished customizing it to my needs.

I had to move out of debian because my DVB card was not working there... Moved to Linux Mint XFCE this time.

It is not looking much different after all. I do not understand why people like a desktop window manager full of 3D effects, flames, explosions, transparency and all.

A light XFCE with traditional menu is everything you will want to become more productive and work more comfortably.

It always worked flawlessly, then why to change!? :rolleyes:

It's all about what is aesthetically pleasing to you. for me smooth corners, shadows, transparency, and cleaner text are a must. if for no other reason - I pay for the hardware and it can handle it, I like it - why not?

I'm newer to linux and I never had the experience with Gnome 2(MATE) that many have had over the years...with that said...I like MATE and have been playing with it lately. I'm considering moving from the newer version of Gnome that I've been using to the old stuff. It works A LOT better with my ancient hardware. Every bit as good as xfce.

Since I'm used to ubuntu distros, I'm currently testing out Ubuntu MATE. It's very stable.

Best,

I didn't even know Ubuntu Mate is available as a LTS too : for a long time it was based on 14.10. That alone would prevent me from using it.

Until know, i would just install Ubuntu Gnome LTS + Mate-desktop on top of it and make it the default DE.

Obviously i couldn't uninstall the default Gnome DE without breaking parts of the system, eventhough i had no use of it.

Its decided : i will install this Ubuntu Mate LTS from scratch today !

Me likey @james888 , what app are you running in the top corner?
That is Conky. I already had conky, as suggested by @Norton, to show cpu mhz but I just recently realized I could configure it to look like that. It shows system monitor info, temps, and cpu mhz all in one app. I had 3 for that before.

Testing out Mint MATE 17.1 this weekend, seems to be hitting my CPU a little harder than Ubuntu's version of MATE so I'll probably be sticking with Ubuntu...I've also tried PCLinuxOS and Sparky's version. Sparky's pegged my cpu at 100% consistently...but I liked the dock. :). I can add my own if I need one.

Very happy with MATE...it's scratching my old school itch. Ultra Flat Theme, with Ultra Flat Icons.

Why is everybody making solid color themes now!? It (re-)started with Windows 8 as far as I can remember.

Now boom, an explosion of solid color themes are starting to take place. Nothing against it, I like it. :rolleyes:

Damn I used conky a few years ago but never knew I could get that much info from it. I have to give it another whirl.

Blue-Knight...

I'm probably 'behind the times'....I just started using these solid colored flat themes. I might be crazy(and probably am...:)), but these distros seem to run a little smoother(ie: faster) with them. Could be subjective...I don't know, but every bit helps. Finally have all of my software loaded up...think I'll just continue with this distro on the laptop. An E1-1200 needs all the help it can get.

Mad Shot....give the 'Conky Manager' a try. I believe 2.1 was the latest version I used.

I don't even know of this software. I did that all by hand, copying a couple different conky configs.

I could give you a copy of my conky config if you want to edit it for your own use. I got inspiration from this page.

I asked for a program that did cpu frequency and a program that did temperatures. I thought it was you. I was using psensor, conky, and gnome system monitor. Apparently conky does it all.

Just installed "Linux Mint Debian 2" on a USB 2.0 flash drive:







It worked with acceptable performance on my very poor usb flash drive: 15MB/s read, 3MB/s write...

I could install drivers, programs and watch TV just by installing the system on my usb flash drive.

Trying doing that with Windows... LOL!

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I have tried that before for crunching. It killed my usb 2.0 flashdrive. The usb 3.0 flashdrive I tried survived but overtime the system became corrupt. For short term use it is great though, just not long term.

Hey, @james888! Thanks for sharing your past experiences.

In this case I would try to minimize flash drive workload as much as possible by doing the following:
>Install a minimal GNU/Linux system... The smaller the better.
>Put all the program data (folding@home, boinc) to memory (ram disk) and initialize from there.

That would minimize flash drive access... And only save the modified data to flash drive at regular intervals (every 1 hour or more).

And for best results... Try to get the entire system to boot from flash drive and keep running itself from RAM that way the flash drive work will be reduced to almost nothing.

Not sure if it would work. LOL!
