sam896Hello.  So I just switched from Ubuntu to xubuntu.  Same hardware.  Same setup, just a different DE.  I am noticing  that xfce is very sensitive to disk activity.  Video's are skipping around where they used to not to under the same conditions.  Any ideas?00:18
SunStarinstall smartmontools00:22
SunStarsounds like ur hard drive is pre-fail00:22
SunStarxfce runs fast on everything no matter how old or new. when its not, 90% of the time thats a hard drive issue.00:23
sam896SunStar: But it works fine in gnome fine.  I even went back on a live cd and the issue is gone.00:28
SunStarbad install iso00:29
sam896I know it doesn't sound likely but in this case there's something with the cubuntu install that's causing the issue. I did a smart test and the drive is fine.  I could do the manufacturer's diagnostics.00:29
sam896I did the check before I installed.00:29
SunStargo with what works. no one will believe me but i have an 11 year old laptop that runs faster on KDE than XFCE00:29
sam896It's fairly new hardware.  It's not old or anything00:30
sam896same ones. I just install nvidia-current and nvidia-settings00:31
SunStarx.org driver is a bit choppy with video but i've had less issues with it than amd/nvidia proprietary00:32
sam896Do you think that would really matter though?  I mean the installs are the same, only thing that differs is xubuntu-desktop instead of ubuntu-desktop00:34
SunStarwell you dont need to install xubuntu to use xfce: http://linuxg.net/how-to-install-xfce-4-10-on-ubuntu-13-04-12-10-12-04-and-linux-mint-15-14-13/00:38
SunStarjust use what works and try installing xfce00:38
slooksterpsvmy computer keeps just shutting down when I'm in Xubuntu usually when watching a youtube video or have multiple programs going; I was thinking it was overheating but now I'm not sure00:39
sam896SunStar: There are reasons I don't want to use plain Ubuntu.  I like xfce.  Just with these disk access issues00:42
SunStarwell there is also Ubuntu Studio you could give a whirl or you can stick around / check back / check in with the forums00:49

ubottuU is the 21st letter of the modern latin alphabet. Neither 'U' nor 'Ur' are words in the English language. Neither are 'R', 'Y', 'l8', 'ryt',  'Ne1' nor 'Bcuz'. Mangled English is hard for non-native English speakers. Please see http://geekosophical.net/random/abbreviations/ for more information.12:50
ubottuSome tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel12:51
