  • Brand and Model
    Desktop, self build

  • Components: Processor, Memory (RAM), Storage
    RAM is 2x4GB DDR3, the rest is shown above

  • Connectivity - Wi-Fi? Ethernet? Bluetooth?
    I’m USB tethering my phone all day long!

  • Any other OS installed?
    Unfortunately yeah :frowning: Win10, installed on separate drive, cause I installed Linux first back then, needed to run certain games

  • Additional devices: Printers? Scanners? Phones/Tablets?
    Just phone, for internet connectivity (USB tethering as mentioned above)

  • Performance - is it fast? Responsive? Sluggish? Good enough?
    Good enough I guess

  • Open Source or proprietary drivers?
    Proprietary, NVIDIA Driver Version: 361.42

  • Do all the components work as intended?
    It seems so, great job devs!

My Laptop (not Main PC)
Dell Vostro 500
Components:
processor:intel celeron 560 2.13ghz (Solo core)
rammodified:2GB (original was 1)
Connectivity - Wifi- Plus Some bluetooth functionality
graphics are intel integrated
.
Ubuntu MATE: 16.10 64bit on BIOS

Performance - it is Fast but the processor tends to get to 100%. well thats normal even on windows xp
Open Source or proprietary drivers -most of them are open source…
Do all the components work as intended?
Yes.

  • Ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 - MATE 1.12.1 - 4.4.0-62-generic x86_64 (64 bit) - UEFI mode (secure boot disabled) - latest BIOS.
  • Interacts with both my Windows Phone and Android. HP Printer works. microSD cards work.
  • Using all Open Source drivers. Only microcode updates are activated as proprietary.
  • Most resource intensive game I can play? Counter Strike: Source. Anything lower will run good, including PSX emulators. It is capable of running Unity (but runs better with Low Graphics Mode). On the other hand, GNOME is VERY slow on this machine. KDE is fast and usable too. But you get the most out of it with MATE.

BUGS

  • Bluetooth file sharing works until you suspend Ubuntu, because of the network-manager bug #1589401. This bug causes all other Wireless APs to disappear from the list after suspend, replacing the Wifi icon with the Ethernet icon. Workaround: sudo systemctl restart network-manager. It fixes until you suspend again. To automate it, use this script. This bug seems to only affect Ubuntu based OSes. It can be annoying for inexperienced users, but it’s tolerable.

  • I witnessed a new problem in which the whole MATE panels disappear at random times. You can run mate-panel --reset and if it doesn’t work, go for Ctrl + Alt + PrintScr + R E I S U B , which will reboot the PC. The workaround I use is disabled compositing. Marco without compositing.

  • Fonts will occasionally become corrupted after leaving the laptop idle. After it executes the screensaver and sleeps, the characters in the UI become unreadable. Disable screensaver (leave it blank screen) and it keeps it from happening all the time, but it will happen.

These bugs only seem to affect Ubuntu and the MATE desktop. If you go ahead and install, say, Fedora or Manjaro, it will work without problems. I use Ubuntu and MATE because they work better for me and I know my way around the bugs.

Always confirm if TRIM is scheduled (by cron or by systemd timer): sudo systemctl status fstrim.timer or check if fstrim file exists in/etc/cron.weekly/ and try it with sudo fstrim -v /

Install ZRAM (compressed RAM), because this laptop runs out of memory when opening lots of tabs on Chrome (Firefox runs painfully slow) or executing some video editor… sudo apt install zram-config does it all automagically. Ubuntu MATE uses ~500 MB when idle. It’s responsive and reliable if you stay within its limits.


Any recommendation for dual boot ultra portable laptop

This is my “Man-Cave” workshop computer, just to do Arduino programming mainly, but I like to keep it neat and up to date, hence U-Mate. I have now moved all my machines, in this order RPi3, i-5 Desktop, MacBookPro and eeePC over to U-Mate. Getting robust environments that perform well and are consistent (as much as can be expected) across these machines is excellent.

I have connected this computer to a Philips older 4:3 screen (1280x1024, 19") using the supplied DVI-> VGA adapter and found the screen was not auto detected. Using a DVI-D ->DVI-D cable cured this totally. Thanks to Wolfman and others for tracking this solution down.
Using this provided a temporary remedy until the new cable arrived -

xrandr --newmode "1280x1024_60.00"  109.00  1280 1368 1496 1712  1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode VGA1 "1280x1024_60.00"
xrandr --output VGA1 --mode "1280x1024_60.00"

Cheers and thanks to all the people who contribute to the U-Mate community, Rob

Hello!
I’m using Ubuntu Mate on my Acer Netbook (ES1-131)
Everything works beautifully out of box. I only wish the web browsing would be a little faster. It is sometimes laggy. But I know, my maschine has a weak processor.

Best regards: Stefan
