  • Agree, Darktable is working very well for me since switching from LR. Just have to find the best way to export the 18K+ images I've edited in LR over the last 3+ years. Based on your tip I doubled ...
  • Replied in Quick update...
    Seems the Nvidia utility adjustment I mentioned above helped, at least with Mint and Kubuntu. Spent some time today in both and neither had a hiccup. As mentioned above, digiKam was working well ...
  • That's good to hear. Thanks for the info.
  • Understand. Have read that Intel 530 graphics is now supported in Ubuntu, so there's progress.
  • Mentioned my system in a previous thread but should have repeated it here. It's a 2009 iMac duo core 2 with 16GB RAM running El Capitan. There is nothing wrong with the machine other than being ...
  • Memory is good, everything works perfectly under OS X.
  • Thanks. That's a good question. I'm guessing (hoping) a 'mainstream' system should be fairly well supported.
  • Yes, that's one concern.
  • The only video card changes I'd made were through the driver manager included in the settings section of each Linux distro, so at least that doesn't seem to be the problem. Opened Kubuntu again ...
  • On install it first opened up using the open source Nvidia driver, which worked OK but had problems rendering during startup so I switched to the recommended Nvidia proprietary one. I also tried ...
  • Kept my D5000 after getting the D7000 for the same reason. Used it occasionally for those times I wanted something smaller, lighter, or I might fall into the creek. On getting the D750 I decided ...
  • Created discussion thread Trouble in paradise...Linux on a Mac
    My ultimate goal is to run Linux-only on a computer. Although it works well in the short term, after a couple hours Linux starts to fall apart on the iMac and things head south. Sometimes it's ...
  • This is an interesting problem and as you say, there are likely many out there that have at least a few corrections they'd like to make. You may have to query an Apple forum, maybe even contact ...
  • This is mine (free -m) in Ubuntu 14.04 right now: total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 15790 1675 14115 39 86 656 -/+ buffers/cache: 932 14858 Swap: 0 0 0 And this is Kubuntu 15.10: total ...
  • As others have mentioned, it sounds interesting. Their web page doesn't show much about it though and the ISO file is huge (4.3GB) compared to Kubuntu (1.4GB) or Mint (1.6GB). Must come with a ...
  • Interesting graph, wonder if much has changed since then. Makes sense KDE would require more with all the features/customization it brings. Coincidentally, I've had Kubuntu crash on me a couple ...
  • When I get a little more experience with Linux I'll check out OpenSUSE. Yeah, the monitor would be good for a 2nd display, say for editing tools, etc, but I'd definitely need a better one for ...
  • Had tried Kubuntu 14.04 but wasn't crazy about it so went back to Ubuntu 14.04 primarily. Was going back and forth between Ubuntu and Mint to get a better feel for them but kept coming back to Ubuntu.
  • Looking through a couple Linux forums I see there were issues early on but as you say, by December things had improved quite a bit. The latest post I ran across confirmed that 530 graphics is now ...
  • It's gone very well installing programs with each of the included software managers. Had to use Terminal commands to get the latest versions for all 4 of my main PP packages though. That was for ...
