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,
wlake

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.

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).

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.

Sweet! I think that Mint 7 KDE will be the best ever Linux distro shipping with KDE 4. I assume that it will be released with KDE 4.2.3, right? Hopefully the upgrade to KDE 4.3 will be smooth. As I surf around the Web, I am always praising Mint and leaving links to this website. Canonical should just drop Kubuntu already and replace it with Mint KDE.

The more interesting question is what system requirements would be needed for comfortable work. I've got Athlon XP 1700 768RAM ATI 9500 Pro and Mint 5 works smoothly. However still is less responsive and stable than my "pimped" WinXP and i wondering that KDE 4 in Mint 7 willl make the situation worse. Do i have to worry?

You may be very disappointed! :cry: ATI has dropped support for ALL older Vid cards.

Suggestion: Try the Live CD first!!!
