If you feel that you are about to become a "distro-hopper", a word of caution: Switching distros to solve a problem can cause big trouble---much better to fix the issue in whatever setting you found it.
Post the details (in a new thread) and let us help.
Thanks Pixellany, will post the question with details later.
Regarding being a "distro -hopper".. it is the first time I see the term. I was aware of Ubuntu and therefore trying Ubuntu 12.4. More recently I have read Mint is the most popular distro at the time, so just wanted to compare. Why mate and Cinnamon?.. well I am not sure what people are talking about when they say this used "Gnome" or this doesn't. Quimo, is for my kid.i tried Doudou Linux but did not work in either of the tree computers,, did not even install.. showed some errors... which i think I wrote down... but again, Ubuntu gave me errors too.
My experience with "kannopix"/? was incidental. It was on a free CD on a PC magazine. Only live though, comes with Chromium, which I though must be the version of Chrome.
Anyways, thanks again
