Well, Ubuntu 13.04 was installed on my office system. It had unity and all was working great, till this happened
And then the wall paper changed like this
Well, I did report a bug in Ubuntu https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/1177744, but there isn’t any response as it would have been before, when Ubuntu listened to the community. Dismayed, I have installed GNOME on Ubuntu.
Looks like I have to change distros across all the computers I use, and ditch Ubuntu for turning blind eye to community. Its so sad, they bubbled up due to us, but now they ignore the hackers and others who contributed to it.
I think we must watch the bubble collapse and they will know the value of us.
Yup, I am ditching Ubuntu. It works great on high power systems and Unity Desktop is really slow on any low power computers. Possibly those lenses are the problem who knows. But the main thing I missed in Ubuntu is SCIM (smart common input method) which lets me type my language Tamil quiet easily. For some reason it did not work in Ubuntu.
I have a desktop in my home that is low powered system compared to normal standards. I installed mint on it, surprisingly it installed faster than Ubuntu, it works smoothly without a glitch. And whats important is I can install SCIM and use Tamil in it! Just go to this link http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1505950 , follow the procedure and you got it.
Plus Ubuntu which started out by saying its a community distro is now ignoring the voice of community. Though I wont call it a betrayal, I feel it does not stand to mean what “Ubuntu” really is. So anyway thanks Linux Mint!
