alright, im a bit of a gnube, so i really have little idea of what im doing when it comes to getting linux systems to work right. what i do know is that all i need is a basic distro with a very simple gui, a very simple web browser, jack, and pd extended. so far ive tried ubuntu, lubuntu, a minimal debian install with xfde, and pure dyne. pure:dyne came with pd and a bunch of externals, but not pd extended; lubuntu and ubuntu installed pd extended just fine, except that it wont load (and ubuntu is a bit heavy for my labptop, anyway); debian wasnt able to install it on a count of some missing or outdated dependencies (libmp3lame0, or something).
is it possible? can i make it work? would someone like to walk me through it like im a small child?
ill even try slackware if itll work.
thanks for any help.
