Plus why are preferences and user data not taken over from hardy? I saw a ".kde4_backup" folder, but copying the whole folder over to .kde messed up my whole system. And I had hoped it would be possible to install new plasmoids via get how new stuff now, but it still doesn't seem to work. All in all, I must admit I'm not exactly happy with the beta right now. Hope things will get better until the release version.

Update2: On the upside, compared to hardy KDE4 remix with the latest updates from the personal repositories: The new adept has nice features, although I'm still missing purge and reinstall functionalities. And it behaves very strangely. Sometimes when I type the first some letters of a packet's name, it appears on the list, but after typing some more - correct! - letters, it disappears. And the grub-editor is very nice. Another very good adition is the guidance power manager.
Update3: Now some other problems have occured. Seems my parallel installation of kde4 and xfce (I'm using it because xrandr doesn't work right with kde4 on my computer) causes more trouble on intrepid beta than on hardy. Now, for example, it starts the gnome network manager daemon instead of the kde version.

Introduction

  • Add your feedback like this w/o the bold, and then use the @SIG@ at the end of your line, look at the first post for reference

  • All serious issues should be still submitted as bug!

  • Please nest a reply when you are responding on another reaction. Otherwise it will grow in a mess.... Thank you.

  • We do not usually respond to these comments, there are too many, but they do go directly into the developers e-mail and every one is read

I have been testing this beta, and I see many display-related issues. Firefox, for example, looks quite ugly. The tabs don't show properly, and there are display issues when viewing my Gmail email as well. Furthermore, I see a problem with fonts. The different in size between font size 11 and size 12 is quite big. Going up from size 9 to 10 to 11 is okay. Then, size 12 suddenly becomes huge! The trouble is, size 12 is my preferred font size (I use that currently on Feisty, where it looks fine). I also notice that the fonts do not look the same on KDE apps and firefox, even though I have set the option in KDE's control panel to apply the same font to GTK apps. All this works just fine under Feisty, but looks broken on this beta. Sadly, Feisty is not going to be supported soon, otherwise I'd happily stick to it for at least another year.

I was not able to obtain an interface in my language (italian): I selected Italian in Ubiquity, but Kde is still in english (apart from konqueror and some parts of other apps). Even if I install kde-l10n-it (which isn't installed by default) the situation remains the same. In hardy I have a full kde 4.1 in italian. Also I didn't see a button for managing users in systemsettings, as in kde3: that would be useful. Apart from this it is a great release. Thanks!

I've been testing the beta for a whole day, and love what I've seen so far! Loved KDE3 in Kubuntu 8.04 and LOVE KDE4 in Kubuntu 8.10 beta! So far only a few minor bugs have showed, nothing at all serious. One "bug" that is still present from 8.04 is that, when using logitech dinovo edge bluetooth keyboard with usb dongle, I have to pull out, replug and reconnect ("pair") the dongle after every boot. I circumvent this by disabling bluetooth ("sudo update-rc.d -f bluetooth remove"). Also the ctrl+c for copy didn't work until I configured klipper to "ignore selection", but this may have been a coincidence. Thanks for a great release! -- oekj 2008-10-03 16:28:00

I've just upgraded from Hardy KDE4 remix and now KDE4 is extremely slow. I have Xfce installed in parallel and everything's fine there. Even kde4 apps start normally when started in Xfce, but when I run kde4, even Dolphin takes 5-10 second to start, things like kmail take much longer. Of course KDE4 is slower than Xfce, but on hardy it was a lot faster than on intrepid. Update: I just found out that it is a problem with scim. Don't know why it didn't appear on hardy, though. Plus why are preferences and user data not taken over from hardy? I saw a ".kde4_backup" folder, but copying the whole folder over to .kde messed up my whole system. And I had hoped it would be possible to install new plasmoids via get how new stuff now, but it still doesn't seem to work. After fixing the scim problem now apps start normally.
