I installed Ubuntu 13.04 in a samsung N100S for a friend.
Using Unity was impossibly slow, installed gnome panel and login using gnome classic. It is better but still slow.
My guess is the graphical driver
Checked what was the graphic card using lspci:
VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor D2xxx/N2xxx Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0b)
went to the intel linux linux graphics installer web page and downloaded the 13.04 64 bit debian version.
Installed the driver installer and then ran it, however the installer says that the netbook does not have an intel graphical card!!!
Any ideas on what the problem is?
Due to the complex package dependencies of the binary graphics drivers for the Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 Series used in the Intel® Atom™ Processor N2600 Series and Intel® Atom™ Processor N2800 Series, supported drivers are only available through your device manufacturer or through Linux distributions providing support for the Intel® GMA 3600.
Mine Samsung netbook/Intel N2100/ Mint 13 is not supported also.
Try to install Fedora or Ubuntu 12.04 (not 12.04.2) (e.g.Mint 13)
If I understood well Ubuntu 13.04 32 bit and corresponding Intel installer should work?
Will try that
Install 12.04 LTS (NOT 12.04.2)
You can try Ubuntu13 (I don't think it worth spending time), AFAIK no chance to get Unity 3D working. Very low 3D graphic perfomance.
Intel doesn't support Ubuntu.
You can try MeeGo Linux from Samsung (I've no experience with it).
