Thread: Ubuntu Linux 12.04 Released

  1. #1

    Default Ubuntu Linux 12.04 Released

    Hi guys,

    I'm not sure if any of you know what Linux is or even wanted to find out anything about it but I'm not gonna waste your time elaborating how Linux is faster, better and more secure than Windows or any other god damn Operating System....I'll let you do your own research.

    But today just like the title says, the new stable, long term release version of Ubuntu 12.04 got released.

    Yes may be some of you guys are really excited in trying it out and some may not have even heard about the word Linux in their lifetime.

    Anyway without further ado check out the following video if it interests you:



    Wanna try out Ubuntu? You can get it here: http://www.ubuntu.com/


    Anyway feel free to leave some comments behind, and for those of you think that I'm a pro Ubuntu user...actually I'm not.

    I'm a pro Gentoo user...what Gentoo is we'll talk about it some other day

    What do you mean it's missing...seems to play fine. May be it's blocked in BD?

    Lol....well it's not about liking the UI...the thing about using Linux is that it's meant to be customised. It's way lot customisable in every possible way...starting from themes, to fonts, login screen, everything you want...which I think is kind of restricted on Windows unless you use some custom apps.

    What do you think about these?

I just hate all that unity BS ubuntu is going after...imo it may be good for tablets but I personally would prefer Mint cos everything is pre-installed which is a whole lot convenient than installing all those codecs and everything from scratch.

    Ya man...didn't realise it till you mentioned it.

    But I read a review earlier which made me think that perhaps it's been released. You can read about it too to find out what's different this time if it interests you: http://lunduke.com/?p=2813

    Well, the stable release is out. I'll be giving it a spin today and see if Unity's gotten any better.

    I've been playing with Arch Linux for a while, and I think I'm starting to like it. The problem is that none of the DEs seem to fit my tastes. I'll probably have to go for a standalone window manager at this rate.

    If game were released for them then I would've used Linux.

    I've had a special place for Arch Linux...I tried it before I lost myself in the world of Gentoo. It's pretty cool but one thing that I've always hated about Arch (don't take it personally) is the fact that they haven't implemented package signing feature. I can go to great lengths for a distro but I'm not ready to compromise in terms of security. Just think of all the packages that get downloaded from various servers....what if....one of those servers get hacked and the packages get backdoored? Not that it is an impossible scenario, in fact it has happened a lot of times in the past.

    Also another feature of Arch is that they keep on pushing bleeding edge stuff all the time...stuff directly from sources which might not be that stable...on Gentoo you can fix this problem by simply masking a package and getting to a more stable version of that specific software...I'm not sure if that's possible in Arch.

    Anyway as for DE, there are plenty...I'm planning on trying some of the tiling window managers...but then again I'm a big lazy fag that just doesn't wanna leave gnome3. Perhaps some day when I'm not doing interns & working my ¤¤¤ of with startups & freelancing...I can spend some time with those.

    As for Unity...I never liked it...but it seems to have improved a lot from the reviews I've seen...but still I don't think I'd use it anytime in the future. Rather go for fluxbox than use all that bs...no offense to unity fans but I simply think it's meant to attract newbies who are starting out on Linux & boy I can't even stand that chat @ubuntu irc channel...it's flooded with noobs.

    Just check out this log...

    16:06 < thebigbangass> Hello

    16:09 < thebigbangass> bios
    16:09 <@FloodBot1> thebigbangass: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.
    16:09 < thebigbangass> it tells me please insert a cd from my BIOS!
    16:09 < irenicus09> thebigbangass: did u change the bios settings to boot dvd/cd first?
    16:09 < thebigbangass> yes sure
    16:09 < thebigbangass> it checks cd but says no cd in there!
    16:10 < thebigbangass> No it isnt. the cd lays on my table next to me
    16:10 < irenicus09> thebigbangass: did u check the md5sum of the downloaded iso?
    16:10 < thebigbangass> yes sure i di
    16:10 < thebigbangass> *did
    16:10 < ActionParsnip> thebigbangass: did you MD5 test the ISO you burned? Did you burn as slow as possible? Does the CD drive get detected in BIOS?
    16:10 < thebigbangass> CD drive is detected and MD5 is right
    16:10 < thebigbangass> I burne slowest (8x)
    16:10 < ActionParsnip> thebigbangass: do you have multiple CD drives?
    16:11 < thebigbangass> no only one
    16:11 < thebigbangass> i meant 4x
    16:11 < ActionParsnip> thebigbangass: does the CD spin up when you put it in?
    16:11 < thebigbangass> ActionParsnip: but it in? where in? what do you mean by that
    16:11 < ActionParsnip> thebigbangass: when you put the CD in the tray, does the CD spin up?

    16:12 < thebigbangass> ActionParsnip the cd lays near me as i told before: [22:09] <thebigbangass> No it isnt. the cd lays on my table next to me
    16:12 < ActionParsnip> thebigbangass: to boot the CD you need to putit in the CD drive...
    16:12 < irenicus09> thebigbangass: or u could burn iso into your usb if u have one..
    16:12 < thebigbangass> has the CD to be in the dvd drive ??
    16:13 < L3top> troll
    16:13 < irenicus09> L3top: smells like troll lol.
    16:13 < thebigbangass> has the CD to be in the dvd drive ??
    16:14 < intrader> ActionParsnip, what are your dealing with here - insering CD LOL
    16:14 < thebigbangass> please tell me have i put in the cd or not???
    16:15 < thebigbangass> I thought it was burned the iso on HDD !!!
    16:15 <@LjL> thebigbangass: this is not the place for trolling
    16:15 < thebigbangass> i thought ISO is burned on hDD
    16:15 < thebigbangass> so i do not need inserting cd
    16:15 <@LjL> thebigbangass: well, you were wrong. if you burn an ISO to a CD, it gets burned to the CD. now insert the CD and install.
    16:16 < L3top> No... 12.04 installs by osmosis. It must simply be near by. If your bed is more than 4 ft away try putting it closer.
    16:16 < thebigbangass> LjL and why i downloaded the iso if i have got a cd ??
    16:16 < thebigbangass> ?
    16:16 <@LjL> thebigbangass: i don't know, why did you?
    16:16 < alien64> lol
    16:16 < irenicus09> L3top: nice one lol
    16:16 < thebigbangass> I downloaded and burned it on free CD
    16:17 < MonkeyDust> thebigbangass very good, now reboot from the cd
    16:17 < thebigbangass> MonkeyDust: has the cd to be in the disk drive when booting from it ???
    16:17 < L3top> thebigbangass: an iso is a CD image. You burn the image to the cd, and then boot to it.

    Lol at that chat log. That was probably just an attention seeking troll.

    I'm guessing you haven't used Arch recently; they've rolled out PGP signing. It's still not enabled by default on a fresh install, but it's nearing completion. Might want to read Allan's blog on the whole progress.

    You can downgrade just as easily on Arch. Assuming you didn't run pacman -Scc after the upgrade, you can revert to the older package using the pacman -U command. Dead simple.

    And yeah, changing DEs is a PITA in terms of time spent tinkering with it to get the perfect setup. Not saying it's boring, but we don't always have the time to fool around now do we?

    As for Unity, I just installed 12.04 on a spare HDD, and it's definitely gotten better. Folks on standalone WMs and plasma/gnome-shell may not exactly like it, but it's close to becoming a usable desktop shell. Although I guess GNOME 2 fans may look for something like Xfce/LXDE, or even the new fork MATE.

    I tried both LiLi Usb Creator and UNetbootin.
    Just tested with the one you mentioned,same result. I was using Linux Mint 12 ,it was working fine.
    On some forum it is marked as RAM issue. But the same thing happens with my netbook.
