Hello guys.

After a long time without post an article, here it goes my first post of this year.

Some days ago I bought a Netbook Acer Aspire one 722 and I have decided to install the Ubuntu 11.10. During the installation or after of the installation it was freezing.

It was going on due Broadcom wireless driver. To solve that, just follow the steps below:
- Restart your computer
- Press F2 to start BIOS setup
- Select Boot option and in the Boot priority order list, leave "Network Boot : Atheros Boot Agent" in the first place

After that, you can use the netbook without any problem regarding freezing.

That’s it. See you next time.

Hello folks.

You already have installed Ubuntu 11.04 but you haven’t liked the Unity. You want to try another window manager like KDE. So you can install Kubuntu, it comes with KDE.

To install Kubuntu, open a terminal and run:

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

During the installation, you will be asking about which display manager you want to leave as default. Choose kdm.

Now, if you want a full KDE installation that include multimedia, networking, graphics, education, games, system administration tools, and other artwork and utilities, still in the terminal, run:

sudo apt-get install kde-full

After that, restart your computer and in login screen, don`t forget to select KDE.

That’s it. See you next time.
