The Xfce distribution was easy to install, looks great with lots of software pre-installed. Updates are required.
However, I cannot use this distribution and go back to Linux 2011 for following reasons:
* HDMI output is required at 800x600 for our cash-register, which we sell to chinese restaurants. I need extra lines in .xprofile, else this one does not start correct:
xrandr -- mode add
xrandr -- use mode
I am using a DE2700 industrial PC with HDMI output.
Because of this startup-code, there is a dirty glitch in the video.
During installation of Linux the touch screen works very well, even without drivers installed. But after installation there is no touch anymore. The eGalax driver cannot detect the touch screen. Even after fixing udev rules and make the device visible. Lot's of tries in xorg.conf also didn't help.
For my kids, they have Linux 13 and love it!!
