A little sour note on 64bit Chromixium installed on friends PC...
Synaptic fails to start.
Haven't posted at their forum.
Don't have time.
So, have set up LinuxMint Cinnamon 17.3 which is doing good so far.
Only issue, the lady likes her pictures and it's hard to find a good Picasa to do the trick.
The one i did install doesn't want to log into her GMail account (bummer!).
So, now i'm going to try out either Digikam or Phototonic (as suggested here at Gizmo!) yes!



p.s. what's so special about Solus MC? you can p.m. me if you want.

The one thing in life that differentiates real winners from the also rans is commitment. Having commitment to a project of course does not automatically make it a winner, but it does qualify it for respect. Anyone who has followed ikey and Solus will have seen him doing all sort of stuff just to finance his belief in the project. A lot has changed during this journey and the Budgie desktop is just one result of it. As it stands, a lot more needs to be done regarding the software database otherwise lack of choice options will sink this before it goes much further. That said, from a respect perspective alone, the Solus final will be high on my list of trials. Whether or not it delivers what is necessary to make it a global success will not depend on my opinion but on that of Dedoimedo and others of greater status. For Ikey's benefit though I do hope the time and effort put into this project will finally pay off.

Default browser is probably still Chromium.
They have become Cublinux and i do the .64bit is what you call PAE and .32bit NON-PAE.
System requirements here.

Thanks danieson; i 've just installed chromixium on an extra HDD on my old Emachines Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.1ghz 2 G mem ram and i have to say it runs like crap, it's slow as hell, even just browsing the web,video takes for ever to load and doesn't play right,freezes as hell, the wi-fi does not run, what a waist of time, i don't know why this guys advertise it as a light distro.

my Xubuntu 14.04 runs i'd say 50 times faster,gets Wi-fi when you download additional drivers,.
i will say this Ubuntu, Xubuntu,Lubuntu,any of these are a winner compared to any other Distro out there,out of the box they run great with no issues whatsoever.


also it says in their system requirements ;Download 32 bit for older computers with 1GB RAM or less
Note: you can no longer install/update Google Chrome or Adobe Pepper flash on 32 bit Linux machines,but is it not suppose to install Pepper flash for Chromium? since it comes with Chromium?

i'm running Xubuntu 14.04 on this machine and i was able to install Pepper flash for Chromium web browser, and video is ok on this machine.

Ivtec, i can understand you having issues and cordially invite you to post on their own support forum.
In the Linux world, i've learned that not one shoe fits all.

If you are having issues, they want to know about them, especially now, as they are actively working on their updated versions.
So, don't hesitate to let them know.
