Hello. Though I usually visit once or twice a week, I haven't posted here for quite a while and haven't logged in for about a year.
I'm going to explain my disappointment with KDE LM 17 - and with LM 17, in general. I suspect both of my issues result from the carry-over from the Kubuntu release.
I've used KDE LM 13 LTS since it came out and awaited eagerly for KDE LM 17 LTS. I quickly downloaded and explored. I liked it. I STILL like it a lot! But then the problems started...
I installed KDE LM 17 on my Dell Inspiron 1525 (yeah, it's old but realiable) and was quite happy - for about a day.
Issue 1: I really didn't like the fact that "resume" was broken for me. When I opened my laptop, I got a black screen. Yes, I've read every post on the forums with the same symptoms but none worked for me. None. I began shutting my laptop down after every session.
Issue 2: My deal-breaker - for some unknown reason, I routinely LOST my title bar and borders! I couldn't minimize; I couldn't close out a window; I lost the menu functions; keyboard shortcuts usually wouldn't work and when I selected the "start" button, the window would open behind the active window. If I shut down the computer and started it back up, the title bar and borders were still gone. The only fix I found was to reinstall. Re-in-stall. Every time.
So. After about three weeks of installing KDE LM 17 LTS 32bit; then 64bit; then Kubuntu LTS; then Ubuntu LTS; back and forth, I decided to go back to KDE LM 13 LTS. Took a little playing with as some changes had happened. Tried updating my wireless driver (which worked nicely for the last couple of years) and couldn't find "jockey" or whatever. Ended up going to ubuntuforums.org to fix this with a sticky broadcom wireless sticky
Other than that, I'm right where I used to be. The "resume" works and I don't lose my title bars and borders.
And I'm enjoying KDE LM 13 LTS again. But I really, really liked 17.
