That is indeed a very nice distro. But it's only available in English or Spanish.

Hi Musher0,

The language problem (and solution) is discussed in this thread:

http://lxle.net/forum/#/discussion/63/language-support.

Have not tested this myself, as I still have to download LXLE... Wink

Sub_title: kubuntu 13.10
 

I installed kubuntu 13.10 64 bit version.
It has a lot of effects available, wobbly windows etc, and they are fun.
No problems so far.
EDIT:
I installed kubuntu 13.10 64 bit on my intel imac as well, it's working great, wobbly windows and all.

problems, problems, problems I updated a single lib file while running Bodhi and my whole GUI was deinstalled for some reason. Bodhi, while very fast has some problems and you certainly do not want to use Ubuntu's auto updater, It does strange things to E17.
.... I went back to the one distro which never gave me problems: Ubuntu Studio 10.04

If you know Spanish then maybe this OS distro is for you.
A variant of Ubuntu where they have tried to include
what most people expect to be there from scratch.

My Spanish is zero so I wait for others to tell how good it is. Smile

And what about Keyboard layout if it is for Spanish keyboard
it will be rather different unless it allow you to specify your owncountry
during boot process?

My Ubuntu Precise 12.04 Openbox spin......538 mb using gz compression for older hardware. Planning to redo with xz compression to get in the mid to upper 400's.
Fairly basic....PCManFM,Gnome Mplayer,MTPaint,Geany and Chromium...... but should work well on older hardware.


Code:
guest-AI9Ksj@custom:~$ uname -r
3.2.0-54-generic

Time to start distro hopping again. I just bought a quad-core 14" lappy with 4 gig of RAM. All for the stunning price of $300.- This with with a year's guarantee thrown for free because I asked for a professional discount Smile It's amazing the savings you can get on what was once an almost 1600 dollar machine if you are willing to buy a refurbished laptop and are patient enough to find a good price. That being said, I am going to experiment with Puppy as a platform for virtual machines. I want to start with Lighthouse 64 and try Fatdog 64 too. Hopefully, they will run vmware player. Any suggestions on what other Puppies can take full advantage of the hardware in this machine?

Just installed Slackel 5.0 Openbox (a Greek distro based on Slackware and Salix), and it's working well although it suffers somewhat from Slack's restricted package repository (no Osmo, for example).

It's a little hard to ride this pony but it races like a mustang on my Acer Aspire 5534.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=729141#729141

I use it mainly because it fit on a 128MB SD card and the save file sits OK in NTFS windows. I am not going to vouch that it will take full advantage of your hardware though.

When I am concerned about that. I just boot and run AntiX 64bit and enable Debian experimental repos, (not concerning myself with breakage)..

Linux Bear is it a x86 compatible machine?

And if it is that new does it maybe have win 8 with UEFI
and that makes it a bit harder to put puppy on it.

You have have to start with FatDog that has special preparation
for UEFI unless your machine allow you to turn it off entirely

But I know nothing. I have postponed buying new machines
for some year now due to the UEFI thing on all the new cheap ones here locally.

None of our local cheap machines allow UEFI to be easily turned off AFAIK

such is sad. I have dedicated a whole USB flash mem for it Smile

d4p suggest TazChrome OS.
I have not tested it yet. I would expect it to be Slitaz OS
with the Chrome browser added?

I mean Chrome OS as such is a very different thing.
In what way can it be Tazified but I know too little.
Thanks for the link though i've downloaded the ISO
but I'm too lazy to set up anything just now. Smile

so tell us more about menu.lst or other ways to do a frugal install of it?

I agree. I was highly impressed with the first version. And was hoping for more from them. On another note, TazChrome is based on Slitaz. And Slitaz is going through some major problems as their leader has stepped away for a while and not sure if he is coming back. Thanks, Rob

Yeah, me too (but thanks for letting me know anyway). I thought the distro had a lot of promise.

Another update; I installed the latest version of Sabayon, 13.08, but it was a sad disappointment (on my machine anyway, in case any of the Sabayon devs are reading this). I wasn't able to update the system once it had been installed or install any additional software (and it doesn't come with an office suite as standard).

Sabayon 10 was pretty good in my experience so I hope this is just a one-off. Manjaro 0.8.7.1's next on my list of distros to try.
