comment How can I turn off “eye candy” and make Ubuntu run as fast as possible?
Also, the 2194 question is from the 10.04-era (pre-Unity, no?) whereas the OP asks about the 12.04 ("latest version"). I agree with him---it's easier to configure Win XP wrt visual performance vs. appearance.

Do you see any errors (EE) or Segmentation fault in /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

comment Is it possible to use binary nvidia driver with GeForce 7300 SE?
Looks like my problem may be different---295.49 still gives me a segfault; I added a comment to the bug.

comment How can I make my Ubuntu 12.04 auto-shutdown when battery is fully charged?
This script looks reasonable to me. Note that the script will need to be run as root, e.g. sudo python ./battery.py (assuming the script is called battery.py and is located in the current dir).

Is your goal to fully charge your device while minimizing electrical usage without having to check battery status regularly?

comment Can my machine run Ubuntu( kubuntu | xubuntu | mint ) 12.04 WELL?
Can you add the link to the thread about video card support? I just upgraded from 10.10 to 12.04, have a moderately old nvidia card, and can only use the "nouveau" (slow) driver.
