Re: Installation help needed (Gnome & Mate install.)

Re: Installation help needed (Gnome & Mate install.)

The live dvd for Gnome seemed glitchy and not the best. Some things worked o.k. & others did not. The live dvd of Mate worked fine. - Both however have the same installation problem. Tried doing your custom layout method & it was trouble, mainly because I did not have a clue what the on screen info ...

Re: Installation help needed (Gnome & Mate install.)

I chose auto install. No, I am not dual booting on a P.C. Trying to install v 13.04, AMD 64,-64 bit, either Gnome or Mate versions. - Both did the same thing. I chose to install on the entire hard drive (only one in the machine.) The hard drive in question is a W.D. 1.5 TB. It may have some left-ove...

Pages; Dark or Light???

Thinking of installing Sabayon but not sure about all these dark look pages. Is it possible to use any themes with light coloured pages? -- If so, I may go for either Gnome or Mate. -- Thanks.

Question re Password requirement.

My preference always has been to turn on a computer and have it boot with no password requirement. Is this possible if I load up Sabayon? -- Rgds.

Mate v Gnome v Kde etc

New to these forums & need to check before downloading, the difference between the Gnome, Mate etc versions. -- Once upon a time I had Ubuntu 9.10, with drop down boxes from the top & liked it. Then I later moved to Mint to get away from the (new) Unity desktop. - Mint 11 (mate) was good. It allowed...
