Xubuntu 19.1030 Nov 2019
Ubuntu 19.10 base and XFCE 4.14, spoiler: it’s good.
Xubuntu 19.10 on my Acer C720
I had been running Manjaro Openbox on this machine for a couple months, which I rather liked, but I felt the itch and had to jump. Xubuntu has always been solid but after trying out XFCE 4.14 in Arch-land I wanted to see how it was with an Ubuntu base. Xubuntu 19.10 did not disappoint. Even on this old, low-spec’d machine it runs great and I had the laptop back in business in no time. I feel like the newly GTK3’d XFCE looks much cleaner and still runs just as good. The only issue I had (which I seem to always have with Xubuntu) is the error message after I log in. I’m not sure what it is for though as everything runs pefectly fine. One of these days I’ll look further into it but it isn’t causing an issue so it is low priority.
