Unity 2D vs 3D Behavior.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 3, 2011
I've been comparing 2D and 3D Unity on my CR-48 netbook to compare what would run better. So far, I think this netbook has enough power to run 3D without issue since I am seeing no benefits to 2D just yet.
That said, I'm curious about something. If you click on the Ubuntu icon in the upper left and then browse through the applications menu, I noticed in 2D the menu has momentum to it. When I scroll and let go, it'll continue for a little bit. On 3D, however, once I stop scrolling, it stops dead in its tracks.
I like that behavior, because when I see something I want and I stop right there, I want to be able to select it, not wait for it for another 2-3 seconds to stop moving before I can select it.
I know Unity 2D right now is very limited on features. But I'm curious if there's a way, perhaps through a gconf setting, to adjust this behavior so it's more of a static scroll?
I'm also curious if anybody knows how to change the icon size for the Unity bar in 2D land as well...
Unity, 2d vs 3d on 1015PEM
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 29, 2011
I just heard about unity 2d and thought i would give it a go on the netbook that is running 11.04 believing it would run faster.
That was not the case at all.
What i found was that it took a very long time to come out of hibernation and even when i saw the desktop i was still not able to do anything for an even longer time. Apps take longer to load and it very much reminded me of win98se in more ways than one.
So I tweaked and fiddled for a while but could not figure out what was causing it.
I find Unity 3d runs very well indeed anyway and have found the switch to the new style very easy (I admit i only just installed unity on my desktop last night, i was using the more traditional gnome layout)
I was wondering if anyone else ran into the same problem as i did
and if they overcame it , how much improvement is there?
Thanks in advance
2d vs. 3d
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 13, 2012
I just purchased a Shuttle model XS36V and installed Ubuntu 12.04. When I log in, I am able to select between 2d and 3d. I select 3d. However, after the session is initiated, $DESKTOP_SESSION reveals that I am actually running in 2d. First, it would seem to me that I would not be presented with selection options if 3d was not available. Is that the case? If so, why am I winding up in 2d? I realize that Ubuntu 3d doesn't work with vintage video hardware. However, it would be a bit of a surprise for me to learn that it doesn't pretty much work across the board with new hardware currently being sold. So, basically, I am trying to figure out where I stand. Do I need to return this thing or what? Thanks for any input.
Unity 2D vs 3D differences
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 16, 2014
What are the main differences between Unity 2D project and unity 3D project! Does unity render faster 2D projects than 3D? Or does 2D prefabs/textures require less memory than 3D? Is there an option for creating 2D meshes in 2D projects?
Thank you for your time!
Unity 2D vs. Unity 3D

Since Unity 3D feels a bit laggy on my laptop, and I dont like its color (cant find how to edit the color??!!), I've decided to switch to Unity 2D, since I like the dark look more.
Now, for some reason, I have to maximize the dash every single time that I open it, which gets quite frustrating.. Is there a way to make Unity 2D maximize by default?
If not, is there a way to make Unity 3D open up a bit faster? (the delay is not that bad but I would like it to be faster) And, can I change the color of the dash?
My laptop has 2 GB RAM and a dual core CPU which should be sufficient for running Unity.
I'm concerned about the direction in which Ubuntu is heading. Sure it looks a bit more sleek and everything, but IMO they are trading off productivity to achieve this.
Unity 2D vs Unity 3D

Hi everyone! How can I tell if I have Unity 2D rather than 3D? If I have 2D instead of 3D, how do I get 3D? What is the difference?
I am using an Acer Aspire 1810T netbook with Ubuntu 11.10.
Ubuntu VS Ubuntu Server VS Fedora VS Suse
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2009
Hello every one
I am setting up a webserver, I am paying a lot of money to host my website, it is only a personal website with some videos. I did some research but realized how sophisticated and hard setting up a server could be.
I am torn between Ubuntu, Suse and Fedora. I heard many good things about Ubuntu but not sure what is the difference between Ubuntu and Ubuntu Server.
I read online that Suse is not the best OS for running a server, and I am not familiar with Fedora.
For some reason I am with Ubuntu, but it is just my guts so I need a more accurate answer.
I am a bit confused, I really want to learn one of these OS but not sure were to start and not sure which one is better for my web server.
I appreciate any help
Thank in advance
Ubuntu package vs. debian package
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2005
A package I'm compiling has dependencies on glib-2.0.
The runtime version comes with the breezy distro, but not the dev-lib. And I can't find the dev-lib anywhere. So I figured, fine, get the source and make it. Spent many hours getting to understand dpkg* tools.
Then I found that there is a full distribution of the packages I'm looking for (runtime + dev lib) on the debian depot (http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages).
The problem though is that the debian packages use a slightly different version number schema. And so I can't match the dev lib from the debian depot with the already installed run-time lib (I get the dependency error - dependency not met because the breeze runtime is called 2.8.0-0ubuntu1 vs. the debian runtime is called 2.8.0-1). I tried re-loading the already installed run-time forcing the version to the debian package, but that looks like it would uninstall all kinds of stuff that depends on it.
So now I downloaded the source of the debian package to se
ubuntu studio vs kubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2011
Hello! What to install?
I like how kubuntu look and feel, but i keep in mind that the Kde is a little bit resource hungry.
On the other way, I was reading that ubuntu studio has some ''real time kernel'' or real time kernel patch -what is that? will make the operating system to process faster video and music editing or photo's as well?
Dose real time kernel from ubuntu studio make kde to move slighty faster?
I would like to use my laptop for everyday task's and Photo Editing (Photoshop emulated) that would be the primary used task, and second is to have a wordpress installed (mysql,php,apache) to work at my personal website locally and then uploda it to host's severs.
Ubuntu + KDE vs Kubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2011
Hi to all,
I don't know if this is the right section to post this question, but it's interesting for me to know if it's the same thing installing KDE on ubuntu or install Kubuntu directly. ( suppose you have the same base, eg. 10.04 )
Some people in forum says that it's not exactly the same thing. So, what are the differences?
Thank you very much!
