Sorry guys it has been a long time since I've logged into give you an update on my progress.
About a month ago I installed LXLE 12.04 LTS 64 Bit onto my Desktop Computer. I try to use it whenever I can so that learn some new things. My observation is it works really well. I love all the great wallpapers that come with it. I like how it allows me to switch desktop configurations on log in. The only two downsides I ran it into with it is, once in a while it won't completely shut my desktop down. The other is when I copy files sometimes it seems slower then windows vista. Other times it seems the same or faster.
I want to take my two computers into a local computer shop. My mission is to find some external hard drive replacements. I want to be running LXLE as a test system when choosing the hardware. The last time I was there I showed LXLE Live, and the employers really enjoyed seeing it. In fact the one guy enjoyed it so much He decided to get into Linux.
When I took the desktop computer back I was hoping to have my LXLE desktop customized with some special effects like I've seen people online do with Compiz and Kwin. I tried compiz on it and for some reason it didn't work. I could only get wobbly windows and lost my maximize/minimize and close x on the windows. Next the administrator on the LXLE forums suggested I try compton instead. Today I gave it a go. The instructions: Compton (shadow effects and more)
given to me by one of the members broke something. Now neither the Synaptic Package Manager or the Update Manger will work.
Do any of you know how to fix something like this?
