Blame Digg

Found the forums from the Ubuntu tut that was Dugg a few days ago. I'm new to Linux and actually just received the latest[?] Ubuntu version on cd from Canonical. I've got a old laptop that I'm looking forward to putting Ubuntu on and learning on.

I'm also a new diy pc builder. So it looks like I found this site just in the nick of time. Once I find the right section I'll post my hardware list - I'd love to get feedback on it before I go ahead and make the plunge.

Welcome to the TAZ, PJay! :D

The Ubuntu tutorial will only work with the latest version, Dapper - please do not try it on a previous version, like DaFoxx did :D

Oh, and one final piece of advice... Never, EVER take ANY advice about ANYTHING from DaFoxx! He has a habit of destroying things :mrgreen:

Upon further review, the cd I received contains Kubuntu and according to their site -
Kubuntu is the first Ubuntu derived distribution. Our Kubuntu CDs are made up of Ubuntu's base plus KDE. You can get exactly the same effect by installing Ubuntu and adding the KDE packages (and removing the Gnome packages) from the Ubuntu archives.
So I'm thinking that it will work. Okay more like hoping it will :?

Most of it should - like Automatix, graphics drivers, etc... But, as XGL has been built mainly for GNOME (I think it uses a GNOME library or two), it doesn't work as well as it should with KDE :(

However, if you decide to try it, please let us know how it goes! :D

Beer? Rum?

Forget all that disgusting trash and the pathetic 'manly' thing... If you're a REAL man, you enjoy diversity - INCLUDING in women (see Kwiep's point IIRC). WKD ftw :mrgreen:

Hey Dicko,

Dont help the bludy Drongo's..
BTW: it is Galah (only 1 L)

I wont even call ya's Pelicans.. Ya Drongo's
The drongos are a subfamily of small passerine birds of the Old World tropics. They were previously classed as the family Dicruridae, but that has been much enlarged to include a number of largely Australasian groups, such as the Australasian fantails, monarchs and paradise flycatchers.
wikipedia is a little off.. Galah is Australian Slang for someone Acting the fool, or fooling around.. where as a ..Drongo.. is a Dopey Idiot..

I dunno whats noisier, the Galahs or the Sulphur crested Cockatoo ..

Yeh.. your all a bunch of Galah's..

I'm gunna see where I can hide a can of Bundy and Cola.. and see how some will go at finding it.. but if that dosent draw attention.. it will just have to be a XXXX. but no prizes
.. The trouble with life is there's no background music..
