Why do you fags hate Ubuntu?

Because according to RMS, Ubuntu doesn't respect your privacy and uses your data to give you ads.

... And, that's it. I guess the only other reason people hate is because of it's popularity, and everyone here needs to find some obscure alternative.

I installed Xubuntu onto my thinkpad. I have no idea what I'm doing after switching from Windows. Should I use lubuntu instead or do they have similar system usage?

also how do you learn what the fuck to do with the terminal? I just use the software center for programs, but I think I'm handicapping myself. Or is there really no point for the average consumer to learn it?

For the average human being, the terminal should only be used if you need to grab dependencies or shit that is outright not available on the software center.

ok I've just been googling how to install things and copying their terminal commands, like google drive.

Well apt-get is a pile of shit so they have to work around it without actually replacing it. You know your package manager sucks when there are a bunch of actively maintained wrappers and frontends that completely change the interface.

Ubuntu is by far the most popular Linux distro and it's community and online support are the best. If you're a beginner you should definitely start with Ubuntu. Decide for yourself whether or not you need a more 'lightweight' DE after you've actually tried Unity.

I disagree. The software center hides a lot of information and is much slower than apt-get, and it's a pain to add repos, autoremove packages, and so on. If you just want to install Canonical-approved software it's fine, but you may as well get an iPad in that case.

You need apt-get for any real power. Synaptic is pretty cool, too, though slower than the terminal.

I disagree.

>>47545511
Hiding it is a terrible solution. I use the top-left to home my mouse, when it's not in a good spot on my mouse pad. The hot-corner will open when I do this. This can be turned off.

Also, when I actually DO want to hit the buttons on the unity bar, they're not somewhere accessible when I want them. I have to move the mouse more than usual and HOPE that it understand that I'm trying to reveal the bar. While Unity tries to figure this out, I have to wait to push a button.

If it weren't for the fact that I can do most of what I do from tty1-6, I wouldn't bother installing Ubuntu ever.
>>
I don't hate Ubuntu.
I just personally feel like I'm cheating myself using it. I'm smart enough to use Gentoo so use fucking Gentoo is my logic.
Before that it was Arch for years.
I bit the Gentoo meme for fun/challenge and once I figured it out I could never go back to Arch.

I use live distros for quick/various "other" tasks on the other hand.
I have no need for Ubuntu though. I understand people would use it out of easy-mode, lack of understanding. That's fine if you're okay with it. I'm just not for myself personally.
To each their own.

I think you overestimate how often users who don't know what software is installs software. The synaptic were great but it displayed too much information and didn't give you suggestions so the demographic didn't like it. It's a shame because it was a good alternative to aptitude.

#! isn't being developed. That's not a major problem because the packages almost all come from normal Debian repos, but they might not have perfect compatibility in the future.

Whatever the fuck that means. I ran XFCE + AWN for quite awhile on my main system. It was fine, but I don't notice any performance difference on my Unity 7 (14.04.2 LTS) system.

Chances are you're going to be installing the Gnome and KDE libraries anyway to get all the best Linux applications working.

No, his point was that Crunchbang is literally just Debian + some config files for rice, and you can in fact get the exact same experience by copying and pasting those configs to a normal debian install

I never had problems with the compositor. The only problem I have with it is that moving windows around on the panel doesn't always work correctly.

Probably because that is how they keep it fucking stable and just werk'ing.
>>
>>47545809

I believe Unity itself is slow and bloated. So many animations and so much transparency and nonsense that just slows down old machines.

You wouldn't notice any performance difference on a good machine, but on an old one you would.
>>
>>47545817
Do you not get tearing with xfwm compositor?
How?
>>
>>47545825

There's only one #! dev, I believe. He just got tired of it and thinks it isn't a terribly interesting distro since it's just a pre-riced OpenBox.

But it's a very good pre-riced OpenBox, so I like it.

I don't remember what I did. I do know that I was able to fix it in videos by using smplayer and going to options -> preferences -> general -> video -> output driver -> gl (fast).

The only thing that has ever not worked for me in mint is back in like mint 14 days, the screen brightness on startup was all the way dark. Easily fixed in a config file by simply changing a number, and the built in backup tool doesn't work for shit. And the brightness thing was fixed in mint 16. Other than that I have found mint to be much more useful than ubuntu. Though they are basically the same thing anyways. Call mint bloated, but it comes with better and useful prepackaged packages.

>>47546026
Fair enough. I don't particularly agree with him on Debian and similar cases either.
His complaints about them hosting the proprietary software repos on their main servers is pretty autistic and sounds like a kid complaining that his food is touching on his plate.
And the fact that Debian will recommend installing proprietary blobs in order to get your shit running on a new install is basically a requirement for a painless install. At least until hardware specifically for desktop linux starts being made frequently, which will probably be never.

He answers everything so there's no reason not to. He doesn't really strike me as an "all or nothing" kind of guy though considering he's used hardware with proprietary code before because there's no real alternative.

Yes, but you can also just get a different distro and not keep telling distro managers it's OK to do that shit by contributing to their statistics of users.

Not all, but a fair portion of Linux users use it for idealistic or philosophical reasons in the first place anyway. Do you really expect them to just not care that the defaults are bad, as long as they can personally turn it off, and use their software anyway?

What's your point?

Of course all the complaining is going to come from people who don't use ubuntu, because we are free to switch Linux distros at any time. Why the hell would someone use a distro that constantly makes them complain?

OP's question wasn't directed at "Ubuntu users", it was directed at "Linux users" and why they don't like Ubuntu.

Period.
>>
>>47546524
But the FOSS community is affected. It hurts the goal that many of these people try to fight for. Ubuntu especially was the biggest distro around, and a lot of people were proud of its success, so they were understandably pissed when they decide to bundle adware in with their OS.

2. Mint network manager cannot connect to 802.11x (RADIUS) wifi, blaming UI.

3. Login with fingerprint-gui from logged out state (not locked) does not work (error password incorrect) blame fingerprint-gui (incompatible). Can be fixed by installing lightdm or other compatible login managers.

4. Retarded file manager does not have file previews like pic related.

Man pages still have problems. At least in the BSD they are fucking consistents.
>>
>>47546630
Same way every other distro does it, donations. You do not compromise your users privacy.

>4. Retarded file manager does not have file previews like pic related.
Isn't that a normal gnu/linux problem that plauges the file managers that come with most distros.
>>
>>47546630
But that's not what this thread is about.

It's about why Linux users here don't like Ubuntu.
If we were judging ubuntu against some completely unfair standard then fine, what you say makes sense.
But we are simply comparing ubuntu to the standards of other Linux distros as Linux users, just as we would judge any other Linux distro.

If Ubuntu has _different_ goals, which requires them to need to make more money by selling your private data, then you can't blame _Linux users_ for disliking those differences
>>
>>47546630
Every other Gnu/Linux distro does not have this problem.
Also I bet you think μtorrent was justified in installing a bitcoin miner in an update even though it's already filled with adware.

>judging a distro against a standard
What standard?

Dolphin file manager does have it so IDK. Is it like impossible to program or something?!
>>
>>47546680
Other Linux distros...
I thought that was painfully obvious. My mistake
>>
>>47546634
Wtf, I have the file previews on mint 17? Not thumbnails, but previews, yes.
>>
>>47546695
Well you do have it in the file picker when you for example pick a pic for 4chan in chrome.
>>
>>47546686
The problem is "other linux distros" is a weak standard. All distros have different goals.

I've been using 14.04 on my main computer since its release.
I found it very unstable lately (past 1-2 months), plymouthd is crashing on a daily basis since an update.
>>
Started using ubuntu around 2008, then unity appeared. Fiddled with it for a few days, felt like shoving a cactus up my ass. Fuck it, tried Mint Xfce and everything felt normal again. Never looked back.

A problem with GTK.
There's a patch for it https://gist.github.com/ahodesuka/01213036b58e510dc074
>>
>>47546725
14.04.2 here and no problems. I have nosplash set so maybe I'm not using plymouthd.
>>
Will GTK get ditched someday?

There are certain areas where Linux distros are a lot more similar than they are different.

Not selling search information users make on their private filesystem is one of those things.
Ubuntu is definitely an outlier in that regard
>>
>>47546747
At least Canonical listened and fixed it.

>For the average human being

Complete bullshit. Millions and millions of young men use computers for far more than facebook machines, and you'll need to learn to use the terminal if you want to use any linux distro beyond the most extremely mundane of uses.

Trying 15.04 on a vm and doesn't seem so bad. There's still this weird thing going I remember happening on 14.04 as well, whenever you open a menú firefox skips down a little and stays like that until you restart it.

Anyone have a clue? Happens on different machines as well...
>>
>>47546766
And they still aren't a mayority.
>>
>>47546766
>complete bullshit
how the fuck so? Most people only need their computer to: check email, browse internet, go on youtube, use an office suite, and watch videos and movies, which is now the same thing as browsing the internet/youtube thanks to netflix and what not. You don't need to be able to use a terminal to do that.

>>47544676
/g/ doesnt collectively hate ubuntu, we hate unity
most ubuntu flavors are fantastic just werkz distros
>>
>>47546735
Yeah, thats not what i meant, i was talking about the preview plane on the right side when browsing files in Nemo, not the upload file picker.
>>
>>47544676
a lot of useless shit at default. i prefer to install minimal sid netinst+download packages i need, not install system and then remove tons of useless things.

Not like i hate it, i just wouldn't choose it.
