ok so last time i installed linux the 5.1 channel sound didn’t work, but everything else did, after a lot of tinkering.
so i thought that 3 years on linux would have developed, and moved towards GUI stuff.
so i downloaded Ubuntu that everyone is talking about. its got lots of GUI interfaces… pity none of them do anything that their name suggests.
Hardware database… doesn’t infact have anything to do with downloading settings for your hardware from the database, infact all it is, is a email the developers to say that your crap ain’t working program…
my screen isn’t recognised, my printer i swear is the only printer not on the list of available printer drivers. the sound is still only 2 channels, and there is nowhere obvious to change any settings…
infact there are no manual settings in any bloody GUI on this thing, if they didn’t detect it then they don’t let you change it (unless you go to the text) to me that is pathetic.
my rant is over, i am uninstalling this first thing tommorow. its just counter productive.
i had expected ubuntu to live up to what others say. but it doesn’t IMO. perhaps i keep trying to install linux onto things that are to new. i.e. 1 month old PC’s.
