Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ New to linux need help

Posted by: dudein Oct 30 2015, 05:41 AM

Ok so I have been using windows my whole entire life and I had an old computer that had windows xp on it and I decided to put Puppy Linux on it but so far I am not really liking it. My mom likes to play facebook games and I cant get those games to work, so far my Linux experience has been a headache. If you guys can help me with the basics of Puppy it would be much appreciated.

What version of Puppy are you running? Could be an issue of SeaMonkey vs Firefox.

What are the specifications of your computer i.e RAM, make/model etc? If you have at least 1GB you can probably run almost any distribution although using a lighter weight desktop then KDE or Gnome would be advisable.
