KDE netbook desktop: My guide to configuring and using it

Filed under
KDE

It is important to note that the KDE netbook desktop is included in every KDE 4 installation — but it is not the default, so you have to activate it if you want it. It works brilliantly on every netbook I have tested, with complete support out of the box for all the hardware including Intel Atom, AMD C-50, C-60, E-350 and E-450 CPUs, Intel and AMD/ATI graphics, Intel, Broadcom, Atheros and Ralink network and Wi-Fi adapters, and as little as 1GB to as much as 4GB of memory.

Although I have chosen openSuSE 12.1 for the screenshots here, I could have done the same thing on Mint 13 KDE, Mageia, or any other current KDE 4 distribution.

More Mandriva Eulogies

  • Good-bye, Mandriva!
    I think that it is sad that the Mandriva star twinkles no more in the OS universe, but it is good that other distros can continue with its legacy: Mageia, OpenMandriva Lx and, up to a certain extent, PCLinuxOS.
  • Finally! It's the year of Linux on the desktop TITSUP
    Mandriva, a French purveyor of desktop Linux, is being wound up, after becoming totally incapable of supporting usual performance (TITSUP), financially at least. The liquidation notice suggests the company's 2013 was around €600,000 and that the company has between 10 and 19 staff.
  • Goodbye, Mandriva, Thank You for the Mandriva Linux OS
    It is with sadness in our hearts that we inform you today, May 27, about the termination of the French Mandriva company, which is currently in the process of being liquidated, according to a notice posted on the societe.com website.
  • A Linux company that spent 17 years competing with Windows is officially over
    It also had some success in Malaysia. But by 2012, the company was on the brink of bankruptcy, a situation that had happened several times since its early days, in 1998. It was saved for a few more years by Jean-Manuel Croset, who joined as COO in 2011 and soon after became CEO.
