ZorinOS Lite Desktop

Well, finally I have a picture to post in this thread! I usually use GNOME 4X, which makes for a pretty bare and boring to post desktop.
But a while ago, I decided to check out the newest Pro version of ZorinOS. I won't use it on my main desktop, as Zorin packages are usually not very leading edge, but I like what Artyom Zorin is doing with the distro. I put the Lite version on my little Tuxedo notebook and I'm pretty pleased with it!

I'm normally a very patient woman, but a recent update to Raspberry Pi OS got on my last nerve and prompted me to (finally) move my desktop daily-driver Raspberry Pi 4 over to Xubuntu this evening, by way of setting up the official Ubuntu image and then switching it over. I wish that they'd just provide a ready-to-go Xubuntu image, but at the end of the day this wasn't too big of a hassle, so it's ok.

If you use a Raspberry Pi in a desktop capacity, you're probably aware that the hardware's mouse-polling can be a bit quirky with some devices; This is commonly believed to only affect wireless mice, but it actually affects wired ones too. The most recent update broke this for me, rendering my wired Kensington Orbit trackball borderline unusable - and worse, the well-known method for fixing it also broke! I've been tolerant of these oddball occurrences with Raspberry Pi OS until now, but this one annoyed me too much - it seems to be the only distro out there where ancient issues that I used to see almost 15 years ago seem to keep coming back from the dead every now and then, and I've had enough of it now. Moreover, it feels to me that it just doesn't give a good first impression of modern desktop Linux anymore, so I won't be recommending it to others from here on out either.

So, yes, my RPi is now happily on Xubuntu, matching all of my other machines, and this is how it's looking right now.

You like bold colours!
That seems like a comfy RaspberryPi, I think Xubuntu has always had one of the nicest XFCE themes around.And it's blazing fast, in my experience.

Haha, yes, I do! The background changes every fifteen minutes (same as my other machines), so this was just what I had up at the time.

It feels a whole lot comfier than Raspberry Pi OS to be able to set it up exactly like my other computers, I must admit - I almost regret putting up with it for so long, now!

I'm a big fan of it, and it's great on this hardware, too!

For me, there's no reason to use the official distro anymore - and I'm one of those people who even put up with it and learned how to block new apt sources from being added without authorisation, that time a year or two ago when they used a standard update to automatically add and trust a third-party repo without users' permission.

I have PPSSPP with a few games on it.

  • The Lord of the Rings - Aragorn's Quest


  • The Lord of the Rings - Tactics


I don't know if they are good or not but been re-reading various Tolkien books with all the buzz about the show. I don't plan on seeing it but I did have fun 'Shadow of Mordor' while ending it. I also played War of the Ring years ago and loved that.

Redream is the best party gaming things for when my friends are over. So far none of the SP stuff has impressed me enough to keep playing it.

Ty. I actually found it on Wallhaven but I would love to pass coin to the artist. I really like this art.

I just had the whole fleet together for updates and stuff, and I took screenshots while I was at it. Smallest to largest;

EDIT: Disaster! The Xubuntu setup that I sorted out for my Raspberry Pi corrupted a couple of microSD Cards within a few days! I don't have the time or inclination to troubleshoot this at the moment, so for now I've retired the machine from its desktop tasks (I'll find some other job for it) and am now docking my Entroware Orion i5 at my desk as needed. Considering that the UK is expecting blackouts in the winter, it's probably better to be using a machine with an on-board battery and not one that depends on SD Cards, anyway.
