I have upgraded to Ubuntu and it works great on my AMD computer. I now tried to put it on my other laptop witch has a intel processor in it and it isen't working very well. Most of the time the nav. bar doesen't come up.
Is there a version of Ubuntu for intel base computers and where can I get one.
It should work equally well on either system. AMD and Intel are the same "class" of machine (x86 or x64, as opposed to powerPC, Sparc, armel, etc). What are the specs of the two machines? Are you using 32-bit or 64-bit ubuntu (and what version)?
You need to install intel graphics drivers to get back your nav. bar. it is there but it will not show up untill you install the proprietary intel driversand reboot. check your laptop to get the name of the driver. google it to find the linux version of the driver. Also ask in the ubuntu forums to get the drivers if it is available. install restart then your laptop will be fine. If driver is not available I would recommend PCLOS to your laptop. my laptop has intel graphics which is not supported by mint. PCLOS has drivers for intel graphics card. Linux mint does not have drivers so as ubuntu i suppose.I mean drivers for PCI Express card or Agp card. The following link may help
