Kubuntu 8.10 KDE4 now running
Posted by anjilslaire on November 7, 2008
Against my own preferences, I couldn’t stand not having the latest & greatest version of Ubuntu on my system. So I installed Kubuntu 8.10 on top of 8.04.1, KDE3 version. I originally was going to do a clean install as usual, but every time I tried th Live Installer, the partitioner would freeze at 50%, and nothing would happen. So, I took the plunge & did an in-place upgrade, risking my system & being forced onto KDE4.
Not bad. I haven’t run into any showstoppers, and my in-place upgrade went well. Since KDE4 doesn’t use any of my color scheme preferences from KDE3, I’ll be spending some time getting the GUI set up for my tastes.
I must admit, I’m impressed with the new effects built into KWin. I’ve got wobbly windows without Compiz 🙂 I’ll post more impressions in the coming weeks as I use the system more.
