Installation issues / 12.04 installation
« on: October 21, 2013, 03:24:40 am »
I'm trying to follow the installation instructions at

- Install Kubuntu 12.04

I've downloaded this over 4 hours (WiMAX link) and am ready to install. Next it says;

- Install Precise Pangolin desktop and update it.

Which starts downloading the current version of Kubuntu 12.04. I'm confused - what version should I be downloading or are there multiple versions I need to be made aware of and tracking?

Is the latter just a desktop?? Do I just install it over top of the previous Kubuntu 12.04?

I'm trying to make a startup disk and want to know what truly needs loading.

Users / Low energy MCE configuration?
« on: October 06, 2013, 02:29:05 pm »
I'm looking to control lighting and monitor energy in my low energy solar powered house, and in a manner that uses very little energy. I currently have a Dell Mini Inspiron 1012 (Atom processor, 2G memory) that I am planning on using, as it is extremely low energy for a laptop (and I happen to have one available).

With the very limited requirements stated above, can I even get in the ballpark on such a platform?

I'm a Linux lightweight (have used Ubuntu for about 7 years, have worked with Unix/Solaris workstations in the past), so I know my way around Linux in a minor sense.
