Re: Best linux distro for t410/t410

2014-12-30, 1:39 AM

Maybe you would also like Linux Mint?  I believe Mint has KDE version, and has Ubuntu and also more direct Debian-based.  Linux Mint, after Ubuntu, is among more popular distros, so finding answers may be easier than with some distros.

Not it is not harder, in fact it is more solid that debian in almost ever way, but if you have no time, then the best adivse is to leave MS Windows on it..

Trying netrunner (kubuntu based), for my jobs I don't see differences, maybe the interface is nicer. But i have few problems with updates. some server are 404notfound and I can't change them. Now one partition doesn't mount.
IN CONCLUSION
when my ssd will arrive I will install on it Kubuntu.
the HDD, instead, will be used for try new distros (maybe arch based)

Re: Best linux distro for t410/t410 - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS definitely

2015-03-01, 15:33 PM

The T410  is listed as fully compatible with Ubuntu LTS 14.04 LTS  and I can confirm that *everything* works great. Definitely the best combo to have for painless install.  I have not tested any other distro so can't say anything about them.

Who certified it?  Why?  Umbuntu is a very problematic and locked down distro.  It is really not good to use for anything.

Well the T410  works 100% with that distro, and I'm not sure what you mean by "certified" - I think I saw the T410 listed in a Ubuntu compatibility listing.  Not sure either how restrictive this is .. can't you use any of hte Linux repositories with it?

Which one?  For a T410?  FWIW, I use Mint on my T530 and love it.   I have the basic Intell video card.

 

I'm running the newest 17 Xfce and also I have a partition with LMDE running, and they're working fine.

 

Both are great IMHO.  No reason they shouldn't run fine on your T410, assuming your hardware is compatible.
