KDE via Kubuntu v13.04 – My First Thoughts

Filed under
KDE

I moved to Kubuntu early Sunday morning, and it was not without a few minor perils. I wanted a clean install, thus formatting /home was a must. I was coming from Linux Mint 14 XFCE to Kubuntu 13.04 which of course uses KDE as the default desktop manager. I really didn’t want any cross contamination in /home nor did I want to dual-boot. It was all in or nothing. So I chose the all in and I am glad I did.

I want to first talk about the install and we will get to the minor perils later. The installer uses a very simple but efficient interface and for me was really quick including updates, (An option during the install.). I went with the manual option and reused the partitions already in place, but as mentioned above, I did format all of them except for /swap. The first boot was very fast to the desktop. Something I did not expect at all was that my Atheros wired connection was up and running with the alx driver. I wrote about having to build the kernel module for this driver in the past.

When we laid out our featured article on things you need to do after installing Ubuntu 14.10, we shared a few little issues we have had with the latest Ubuntu release. Well things got worse, and I decided to try something else for a change. I've been using elementary OS Freya as my daily driver since then. And I have to say, I'm mighty impressed so far. And the fact that Freya is still very much in beta makes the whole affair all the more interesting. A list of reasons why I prefer elementary OS Freya over Ubuntu 14.10 at the moment. Read more
