I’ve just re-installed Ubuntu in my Dell XPS 1330n. It looks very nice… but as I wrote in a previous post, I’d like it to be a bit different (out of the box) ’cause it tends to look much like Leopard.
- The internet connection works, but it is slow… could be the repositories.
- Firefox’s default search engine has gone back to Google. I have nothing against Yahoo!, but I’m a Google’s fan… So, good for me.
- I’ve noticed that Empathy includes Facebook chat and MySpace one. As usual, the F4 key allows you to configure your accounts. The chat windows is cuter.
- In System-> Administration -> Software Source, I changed to mIain server in Ubuntu SoftwareTab, checked the Canonical Archive box in Other Software Tab, and checked the proposed and backport boxes in the Updates Tab. Finally close for reload the changes.
- After changing the Sotfware sources… It finally began to dist-update. 103 files for a total of 117.1 Mb. Not to bad.
- I’ve just found something called Gwibber or Broadcast (when you press the mail icon in the upper panel)… It allows you to post in Social networks such as facebook, Flirk, … and many others.
- Transmission continues been the default torrent client (I really love it!).
- Still don’t use the Simple Scan program, but I liked really much Xsane… I know, I should give him a try!
- The detection of external media is as good as before.
- One of my favourite text editors, Emacs has evolved to Emacs23, I tried like one month ago and I didn’t like it much. Let’s see if this version is better.
- A Kernel problem which slow down the copy process for large files seems to be gone!
I haven’t finished the Configuration, so I’ll be posting during the day!
