Prevent student from changing gnome classic desktop background on Edubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 12, 2013
I am currently a technology coordinator in my school in the Bronx, USA. I have 22 desktops in a computer lab running Edubuntu 12.04 32-bit. I want to prevent these students (standard user) from being able to change the desktop background.
I tried installing and using gconf-editor and going to gnome>desktop>background and right clicking on the background image key, clicking "Set as Mandatory" and entering the admin password. There was no indication it went through, and even after a system reboot, I could change the background simply by right clicking on the desktop, choosing "change desktop background" and clicking on any other image.
What am I doing wrong?!? Please help!
Booting into Gnome Desktop on Edubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 2, 2013
I have an Ubuntu Desktop which I use on an older Dell machine. While using it I did the command
sudo apt-get install edubuntu-desktop
and I installed Edubuntu. Is there a way to boot into the classic GNOME desktop(Not the default unity desktop)? Would this tactic work on booting into Lubuntu-Desktop as well?

While trying to log on to gnome -flashback (no effects) lightdm login does not present the little icon with my user_name. I have to click 'Lightdm Manager' to bring up the icon.
Also .. the screen gnome background screen that is presented in ubiquity and then chosen will flicker once real fast and then go to a default background not as originally depicted in ubiquity.

Ubuntu vs. Kubuntu vs. Xubuntu vs. Edubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 6, 2011
I have a big question:
I've been hearing a lot about other types of Ubuntu.
E.g. Ubuntu (itself), Xubuntu, etc.
But What is the point? Why not just use the original. I've tried Kubuntu and find that the only reasonable replacement. And that is just to have Ubuntu slow but look pretty. Is there any other use of Kubuntu? And what are the perks to Xubuntu and Edbuntu ? I mean what's the point of Xubuntu ? And how is Edbuntu suited to educational purposes?
Hello again, World!
I'd appreciate any kind of feedback.
How to get Debian 7 GNOME Classic or Arch Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 28, 2013
I have a Arch linux system that runs GNOME 3.8.2 and another system that runs the new Debian Wheezy 7.1 that came out a few days ago. I really LOVE the GNOME Classic mode that is included on Debian 7.1, and though I use my Arch system most of the time, I prefer the Classic GNOME greatly over GNOME 3.8.2, so I was wondering if it is possible to add the GNOME classic included on debian and put it into Arch. And I don't want to use XFCE as a replacement. So if someone could tell me how to get GNOME classic on arch linux, That'll be great
OpenBox Performance Vs Gnome Vs XFCE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 8, 2008
I just want to give my personal opinion on this 3 windows managers, i have used the 3 for a while, Ubuntu (Gnome) since 2004, Xubuntu (XFCE) since 2007 and now Openbox installed on a minimal ubuntu.
I have a laptop HP with 2GB RAM and i have made 3 fresh install of Ubuntu / Xubuntu and Ubuntu Minimal with OpenBox (with pypanel).
Despite i LOVE OpenBox (with pypanel) AND despite it give a lot of time doing the configuration i CAN'T SEE where is the performance when booting for the first time (default for ubuntu and xubuntu, for open i have just add pypanel), my results.
Ubuntu - 160MB RAM
Xubuntu - 120MB RAM
OpenBox - 115MB RAM
I tough man, i have all the trouble to install nvidia drivers by hand, to config startup files, to config the menu...and i have gain 5 MB RAM!!!!
OK is faster on boot OpenBox (i didn't add slim or gdm), but when we are on the OS that's the results.
I think OpenBox is great but i was expecting more a lot more regarding performance. i

CentOS vs Ubuntu Server (+gnome or xfce)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 10, 2012
We currently have a LAMP Ubuntu Desktop 10.04 server with a RAID 5 configuration. We are at a point where I can upgrade that to an Ubuntu Server 12.04 edition (+gnome or xfce; for maintainability after I leave) or CentOS 6.3. I've searched the web and have seen conflicting reports of which I should go with. I would like it to be efficient should we suddenly get a bunch of traffic, yet not difficult to grasp for someone with primarily Ubuntu knowledge should something go wrong. I do not know whether there are any significant performance gains when choosing one or the other.
A package-manager is being used to update programs since I do not know if the maintainer will have knowledge/time for building from source.

HI everyone. I just got into looking at the different Linux distress and deciding which one to choose and I have narrowed my choice down to either Mint or Ubuntu. I just don't know the difference between the different versions of each distribution. Thanks a lot for your help.
