    "Don't like the icons, theme? Get different ones. "

    oh yes, because they make it really easy to do that


    it's not like you have to install third party applications to change theme/icons and it's not like you have to add ppa's to get such themes icons etc, and it's not like some work other's don't

    Guide: Upgrade to Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail in less than 20 minutes

    Hi,

    I continue the upgrade guide series by bringing to you a new one: a little step-by-step guide with screenshots to illustrate the upgrade process from Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal to 13.04 Raring Ringtail very precisely.

    I hope this screenshot-guide is of use for those looking to upgrade to the latest (and IMHO greatest) version of Ubuntu

    I am looking forward to your feedback!

    is it a good idea to backport

    About two years ago, after reading a bit on the yeas and nays of it, I turned on 'backports' in the sources tab.

    My laptop always has the last LTS with backports, the tower usually has the latest release - and with backports enabled.

    I figured with backports that I'd get any improvements and fixes - newer kernel, graphics, drivers, and so forth.

    Do you think this is a good thing to do? What do you do?

    Michael, you could have linked this thread: http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...13-04-released!

    Is this a prime example of NIH syndrome we hear so much about nowadays?

    making adjustments

    For me the Unity bar on a wide-screen display with smaller icons is not a burden; one may have it set to auto-hide also. The first thing I do on a new install is get classicmenu-indicator which gives me everything in a drop-down menu.

    Don't like the icons? Get different ones. There are a fair number of icon replacement sets now available. Don't like Unity? Install something else. Works best if you pick something that will integrate well. A bit of searching and some forum diving ought to give all the infos needed to find something that works for you. Finding a good utility that'll help you do fine tuning of configuration is not quite fun, but also not that hard to do. I put classic full sliders back on my windows, for starters. The only real hassle I've got is not being able to get a larger cursor that works across X-server.
    YMMV.

    Ubuntu 13.04 is amazing so far, I have installed it on 4 of my machines here. The only issue I had was HDMI audio not working by default for both nouveau & nvidia proprietary, but that was easily fixed by upgrading to kernel 3.8.9. Finally I can set my the Unity launcher icon size smaller than 32 pixels! Raring definitely makes up for the mediocre Quantal release.

    this is by far the best release canonical ever did.

    stable, decent, etc...

    only thing that lacks is aesthetics fucking unity with gnome icons looks ugly as sin

    They made quantal and raring kernel/Xorg packages available for 12.04 LTS, and i think they come already with newer "point" releases. Search for packages with "quantal" or "raring" (ie. linux-image-generic-lts-quantal).

    Like every other release? The only difference from an advanced user point of view is more updated packages and thus better hardware support.
