I tried, I really did. Getting anything to work was like puling teeth. The biggest problem was Dolphin had no Root Actions in the context menu, which prevented me from doing anything with root files, but I half fixed it with an old script.Cobber wrote:I thought I'd see what all the hype was about. So I backed up my Mint KDE installation on my laptop and installed Kubuntu instead.
I loaded Synaptic so I could install my applications and had everything sort of working. Then I tried to change the wallpaper and it went nuts. That was the straw that broke the camel's back for me.
All in all, it was three days of bashing my head against a brick wall. You only had to look sideways at it and Kubuntu fell over. I have restored my Mint KDE installation, and the MBR on the Windows disk, where Grub is stored.
Seeing Mint come back to life was like putting on a favourite jumper, it was a warm fuzzy feeling. I have never had any experience with Ubuntu or Kubuntu as distros, and I never will again. Mint is a much more stable and functional distro, with KDE being a very polished desktop.
It's now 3:30 AM and I will be enjoying a well earned sleep-in tomorrow.
