I have an old aspire one netbook I want to resuscitate. It currently runs Ubuntu 10.4 but tells me to go away if I try the Update function (only wants to do a partial update - Adobe flash-player has an issue)
Decided to kill Ubuntu and load Lubuntu. Easier said than done -I've been trying for about a week of nights now and I am about to through the thing off a cliff!
My issues are: No CD drive - has to make bootable flashdisk. Unetbootin does not run if I download it. (There are some obscure comments about running some script in the terminal window to make it run, but I tried and cannot figure it out) Tried making a bootable flasdisk with startup disk creator, but this just hangs if I try to boot from it. Millions of pages of how-to's but most dating back many years, so relevance is unknown New to Linux and not enjoying the experience.
Seems like running Ubuntu is like building your own race car - it can go like stink, but only if you know what you do. Think I want a good old simple Toyota!
