    Are you setting up a dual-boot system, or is Debian to be your only OS?

    So you've installed Steam, and I'd assume that you've then installed one or more game within the Steam shell, correct? It sounds like you're trying to launch a Steam game through a file manager...

    I've not used any variant of BSD, but my understanding of it is that it is less "noob friendly" than the average Linux distro, and that would surely apply to a comparison to Linux Mint. (one of the...

    It's been my experience that Ubuntu and it's derivatives have a broader compatibility with the myriad of hardware out there. Xubuntu is a great first distro, as it's fairly lightweight (not too much...

    I'm a little late to this party, but thought I'd share my experiences. Basic USB keyboards do indeed work fine with Linux, but problems can arise with certain high-end mechanical keyboards. I'm...

    Yes, what nihili said. Even though your hardware is old, it would surely be better to install a current, lightweight distro. (perhaps Lubuntu?)
  11. Reinstall your operating system.

    Just curious: why Kubuntu? I ask because I've always found the KDE environment problematic. (XFCE on the other hand, seems the most stable) Just my 2 cents! :)

    Boot Error

    I've been getting a boot error for some time now (months), and while everything seems to work fine I'd like to resolve it. (it slows boot time significantly) I'm currently running Xubuntu 16.04,...

    Given that they're asking about distros with the LXDE desktop environment, I'd assume that they're seeking something lightweight.
