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?
