How to configure Ubuntu?

For me OS the main three things — stability, convenience and beauty. With version 7.04, I got them all, fine tuning XFCE. Now, however, things always go wrong. Beautiful interface out of the box I managed to get KDE4, but it is too heavy (maybe it is possible to make it faster?). Besides, I don't understand how to add a panel in the style of Makos and Vin7. In addition to all the DE I have a really really fast mouse cursor (put on low), and the touchpad is like crazy — when you copy text in the browser is always trying to search for that text in Google, then go back to the random number of pages, then go to that text, believing that it is a url, then randomname url from the page. And to top it, after installing the NVidia drivers, no longer start gdm/kdm/lightdm. He starts, but about 15 minutes after a full load the entire OS (already have to log in through the console and manually start X).

Are there any good articles to remedy this?

Did you look at Linux Mint? Essentially the same Ubuntu, the same opportunities, but re-arranged...

Not holivara for the sake of but visually closer to the Mac OS design I think it is still Gnome, and the Ubuntu it's better polished KDE panel in the style of MAC OS is added by installing Cairo Dock or equivalent, Win7 style dock I also came across somewhere. Regarding the touchpad — try to put gsynaptics (it is in the repositories) then in settings you will see another utility for configuring the touchpad.

The question arises, why do you need Ubuntu? She is heavy by default. Instead of working with a file, it is easier to take any other distro that offers only the console and deliver it all necessary.

With KDE4 we both got lucky. He's got a wild incompatibility with GeForce8xxx
KDE4 with bodies designated by vidami brakes.
Which only low-level tuning I haven't tried is uncomfortable and all=(
With 9ххх and above this is not, as with 7ХХХ and below.
For example, you can write in Google kde4 nvidia slow and look...
So enjoy until kde3.
Also glitches with *DM you can be due to KMS. Add in the rough "cmdline options" — might help.
With a mouse I also have a rake — I change to Microsoft 1.1 a — this worked perfectly...
These are the things...

Appearance — garbage attitude as anything. The problem with the touchpad — it's impossible in such conditions to work in KDE4 the problem seems to be gone after disabling multitouch (or not yet manifest), but had to be demolished for the brakes and the monstrous heat of the laptop, in Gnome and Xfce I don't know where to do it.
Well, GDM is still the login through him, not through the console
\r
PS. And what are some good deb-based distributors with a bare console (don't want debian, ubuntu OK, but don't know where the latest versions of to put only the console)

you have probably horizontal scrolling on the touchpad is enabled, when you touch this area, Mozilla goes or forward or backward through the links/history.
