  1. Hi,

    You have a typo in this section:

    udo apt-get install xfce4

    should be

    sudo apt-get install xfce4

    Looks Good! I Like the Autostart GUI

    I noticed the little internet connection on the tool bar. Is that a wifi connection or mobile broadband? I am using Ubuntu 11.04 – unsupported now, i know but i use it cus it hooks up to usb 3G modem really easy. I tried Slax and got it working but connecting to broadband is a major problem still. Ubuntu is able to run the Blender download package without any problems or complication. (the one from blender.org – not the crappy software center version) (Slax7 can’t do that – Blender needs to be converted into a Slax7 package first)

    I would like a simple window manager to boost performance for playing mp4s and flash videos. I tried Fluxbox but its really awkward and some applications are not visible on the app drop down box.(?) It would be more work to set up. That being said it was able to boost the performance of Blender 2.66 about 25 %. Playing mpegs in the video editor was faster and also renderings in Cycles.

    Will Xfce work better then my Mettacities/Xorg combo?

    Machine:
    Thinkpad T42 1.7 Jizzz
    ATi chip (the smallest crappy one with no cooling tube)
    1 Gig Ram
    SSD
    Ubuntu 11.04 (Updated)
    All font and window settings set to full retard

    Best
    Curt
