Zorin OS 7 - The sum of all parts is average

Filed under
Linux

We have gathered today to review Zorin OS 7, the latest edition of an Ubuntu-based distribution that prides itself at being friendly and newb-loving, which means Windows people.

The system features a sharper, more angular look this time, in a sort of a not so silent nod to the Windows Modern Interface, or whatever comes on top of Faildows 8 and its current beta upgrade.

Fixing unperceived errors in my X Windows configuration

Last week I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade X Windows to the latest version available in the main Portage tree. After rebooting, X Windows, GLX and Direct Rendering worked fine as usual. So everything was good. Well, not quite. Although the installation was working properly, there were still some long-standing messages in the X.Org log file that indicated my installation was not configured completely correctly. I had ignored them for too long and resolved to find their causes and eliminate them. Here is what I did.
