My computer is a Sony Vaio built for Windows XP. I recently installed Ubuntu 13.04 and when I logged in, the bar on top of the desktop wasn't there.
The vertical number on the side of the tag is X08-73061, and the serial code is 3600461. I connected it to Ethernet and it downloaded the software, but it still didn't show the bar on the top of the desktop. Is my computer too old, or is the Ubuntu installer faulty? As a side note, in Windows I made a partition of my drive compress files to save space.
