Ubuntu lucid lynx is extremely slick

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

I tried ubuntu lucid lynx (10.04) on my ┬álaptop and my first impressions it’s way better than 9.10. I have 9.10 now running on my desktop, and tried it on my laptop as well. When I tried to install 9.10 on my new laptop (hp dv4 series) the screen didn’t show anything. On my desktop, compiz does not work on 9.10. When I tried 10.04 it worked and all the hardware on my laptop worked as well. Still to try it on the desktop machine.

Other than the screen, the new gnome theme is very slick and together with compiz they are really way slicker than win7, which runs on the same laptop. I installed all my work on the ubuntu installation including gcc, emacs, vim …etc.

The installation was very smooth. I tried to look around on wubi’s website for a way to install 10.04 but I didn’t find. After some googling I found a link on Librarian Geek’s website.

Some draw backs: 1. happycoders emacs is no longer maintained. Ubuntu removed it from the release. 2. Flash 64 bit does not install correctly from adobe’s website. I got it to work by downloading the tar.gz file pointed to by Raman here. The one from adobe for some reason does not work, and the channel does not work as well.

Given it’s alpha status, I think it will be an excellent LTS release for ubuntu. For me, it’s a keeper on my laptop.
