As the title says: What are the system requirements for GNOME Classic in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS? I would like an answer for GNOME Classic for Ubuntu 12.04, not for GNOME Flashback on newer releases of Ubuntu and GNOME.

there won't be really that vast differences in consuming sources between 12.04 or 13.10. – JoKeR Mar 4 '14 at 22:55

Minimum System Requirements

  • 1000 MHz processor (for example Intel Celeron or better);
  • 1 GB RAM (system memory);
  • 6 GB of free hard drive space for installation;
  • either a CD/DVD drive or a USB port for the installer media;
  • Internet access is helpful (for installing updates during the installation process).
