    Hi guys! Just signed up here :)

    I was just wondering, when I boot up Ubuntu on my G5, Only half of the screen is shown on my monitor. I have an NVidia GeForce (not sure what model number) with 256mb of VRAM. I have heard of nVidia compatibility issues, but is there a way to fix it? I have searched everywhere, and cannot find anything to do with this problem. :confused: :confused:

    Thanks

    I might just try MintPPC, since it looks pretty clean, but from past experiences I have had network problems :)

    Lubuntu 12.04 for PPC

    ...should not be ignored.

    Also, the PPCluddite says Lubuntu 13.04, Raring Ringtail, is visually pleasing and performing well for him. There are however quite a few issues with bugs in newer releases.
