Some experiences with Ubuntu 10.10

I am a long time Fedora fan. Last week, I couldn’t  resist dire to try Ubuntu 10.10. After installed a desktop using Ubuntu live CD. It’s a relatively easy ride, but the desktop is a bit annoying.

It’s a big headache when I tried dual monitors. The desktop got a searing screens. I can’t find a way to restart X windows without reboot. the Fedora way (init 3; init 5) won’t work

Finallly, got a few fix.

Restart X windows without reboot

start a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+F1,

login as root or using sudo

/etc/init.d/gdm restart

Use dual monitors

login ubuntu classic without effect

get monitor configuration
