Regards Just a side note – the xenial 32bit version daily ubuntu-mate works just fine in standard graphics mode. Thanks Vent I am still waiting for the servers to calm down 18 hrs to Download: I might have to excavate an old P4 from its grave, and install ubuntu-mate 32bit.
It’s worth checking out.
Downloading and installing xenial xerus on a 10 year old Acer Aspire that was marked for scrap is now up and running with compiz and a very fine looking desktop experience. It is currently employed at a local retirement home where it plays Gregorian Chants on YouTube for a resident that lives aecr.
