Back to Lubuntu but this time Lubuntu 14.04 LTS (64 bit)

May 5, 2014 Leave a comment

Ups and downs I tried AntiX (Debian 7.5) for a few days it works but its not for me, very basic and very minimal but fast

The only reason I swopped from Lubuntu was due to the upgrade which I tried from TERMINAL never again I’ll go back to the UNetbootin option, download latest ISO use UNetbootin and chuck it onto a USB stick. boot up (press ESC on my ASUS S300 and run from USB EASY)

So its installed and NO BLACK SCREEN ISSUE WE HAD WITH UPGRADE VIA TERMINAL, installs fine except its using a US keyboard layout even tho I selected UK I’ve seen the issue prior to installing (in the release notes UK boards have issues)

Fix issue’s LIST

So first fix is UK keyboard (menu – pref – Keyboard input – input method – select + add – close – reboot UK is working FINE)

Brightness control – its there HA – FUNCTION KEY so FN F5-F6 (f5 down F6 up) life is good

USENEXT –  download via there site and install via package manager (nice and simple)

Browser – Official Google Chrome for me – direct download from HERE

Monitor – not ideal on HDMI but if you move your cursor deep into the bottom left the menu is found (it works)

Garmin Connect – files required for usb to from Garmin 500 device (gps tracking for cycling) HERE

HDMI SOUND – no sound from tv when plugged in Use TERMINAL

FIRST: sudo apt-get install xfce4-mixer gstreamer0.10-alsa
THEN : xfce4-mixer

or find it in sound / video - select controls IEC958 TICK HDMI fully working :-)

Macpuppy – FORUM HERE

puppy linux usb install

Reformat the usb with Puppy >> GParted…to Fat32.

Don’t format your hard drive by mistake.

Check the Flags with GParted….

Did you set the Flags ..>>>LBA and Boot

May 2014 Lubuntu 14.04 LTS – download from usenext site for ubuntu/debian etc – and install via package installed (eg double click on downloaded file in the folder

 

UPDATE: Dec 2012 – MINT 13 MAYA (mate 32 bit) usenext installs from clients software without any mods (easy life)

and MINT 15 has no issues either as is the case with LUBUNTU 

** old news **

If your a fan and like newsgroups and you use the latest Ubuntu 12.04 (sept 2012) the deb file installs but won’t launch and doesn’t seem to be anything around to fix the issue

Open Terminal (CTRL + ALT + T) then #SU (for superuser) password etc – type – sudo apt-get build-dep monodevelop and let it do its thing (takes about 10 mins) install usenext from the software download (TANGYSOFT via usenext.com)

to launch type this – exec mono –runtime=v4.0 /usr/lib/usenext/UseNeXTLauncher.exe “$@”

works fine might not for some its only a tip do it at your own risk
