Hey Boo, is this bug related to the problem you are having with "intel video broken?"
"...drivers for the intel 965/960 cards has been blacklisted because of a freezing issue."
It looks like they are close to fixing the issue...
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/jaunty/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/359392

Hopefully you get that resolved soon!

Don't know if anyone is interested, but I installed kubuntu-desktop on top of Gloria and it runs great and looks great. I kept the Dew wallpaper with the Tragedy desktop theme, linuxmint icons and highlandmist color scheme. I would post a snapshot but, honestly, I don't know how. The whole installation is about 3.7 G as I have not removed any of the gnome apps.

Regards,

Am I wrong at guessing that now that you're relatively familiar to the new kde the release cycle will be shorter? I got the feeling that, compared to Elyssa, it took a little longer to Felicia to be released. Was it because of the KDE4 implementation?

(I don't intend to say you're taking too long Boo. Personally I'm happy about the felicia edition, so for me you can take all the time you need)

There was a long time span between Mint KDE 5.0 ("Elyssa") and Mint KDE 6.0 ("Felicia"). This was due to the KDE 3.5.10 -> KDE 4.1 upgrade (I believe Felicia was released at that KDE level).

Now that Mint KDE 7.0 ("Gloria") is going to be released with KDE 4.2.3 (I think) there should be much less of a wait to go from 6.0 to 7.0, compared to going from 5.0 to 6.0.

If I am mistaken, please correct me.

I am still using Mint KDE 5.0 because I tried 6.0 and I didn't think KDE was ready for a long-time KDE 3.5.x user like me. I really hope to start using KDE 4.2.3 with Gloria.

OK i have solved the intel driver problem which may have been bigger than i thought.
it was all due to a combination of zenity and /etc/gdm/failsafeXinit.
dont know why kubuntu left gdm configs in.

That's great news to hear!

Oh and by the way... I read on a review a couple days ago that the new kubuntu features a poor network manager. Are you keeping the old knetworkmanager?

keeping the new network manager.
it just can not see hidden wifi access points (which bites, but hopefully you use better wifi security than just hiding your essid).

Hey Boo!

I`m using Felicia KDE CE and it looks like the nepomuk+strigi system have some bugs.
Let me hope, that Gloria will be free of it.
Otherwise, what kind of soft would you advise to use for indexing files?

Thanx in advance and good luck!

For now i use Mint 5 kde, i dint try 6. For mint 7 kde I wait with bated breath but i can handle even an additional month of waiting if it would mean perfectly polished OS. So dont be too hasty Boo, just take as much time as you need so we can be proud we use KDE :)

On my hardware the Intel issue is not very noticeable. I have on board 8x Intel graphics and flash playback works in full screen out of the box. I have no idea how other Intel graphics cards will be affected but lets keep a good thought! There are work arounds posted in the Ubuntu forum too. I worked around the issue with the Main Edition and am happy with the outcome.

Yeah I managed to get a workaround on kubuntu to work pretty easily. I was just curious. I plan to switch to mint the day kde ce is out. Before I make the switch ill be experimenting different fixes on my kubunutu 9.04 Intel machine to see what works best or till I mess it up.
