Sidetrack 2
It seems to be the year of dying. But as a writer of obituaries pointed out: a lot of famous people are actually old so expect more of it. In any case, it might surprise some of my friends that over the years I have become a fan of boxing. This as I, at lea...

Is this what the sequel to Bladerunner is based on?

The many joys of travelling
I can safely tell you that it is not fun to sit for over 1 hour at Harare airport and wait for what is clearly a delayed flight to Beira and then on to Maputo in Mozambique. But I can tell you that following that delay itting in Beira transit for over an ho...

The birds
It is kind of strange to feel sorry for a bird. But on our grounds we have plenty, everything from hummingbirds (they make our cat produce some really weird noises when she spots them in the palmtree outside the window) to the very common african, a woodpec...

Happy somewhat belated 69th birthday wishes to you David Bowie! I have now listened to the album and all I can say is "outstanding"

Sidetrack no 1
I am becoming more and more convinced that it is the sidetracks in life that are really important. It is not all those plans you make (it is good to make them to give a direction but they never really work out) but it is the sidetracks. The unexpected. The ...

Internet life is sometimes strange and take you places
Since internet really started taking off with first email (I remember when I had an account and in the area of like 5 people to email to), mailing lists, then blogs and now "social" networks you occasionally get some really strange "path crossings". Just li...

Not exactly Kubuntu but if you use Viber for Linux there is an updated version to download. Without it you will have big problems communicating with Android users of Viber

Kubuntu & KDE SC  - 
 
Sorry if this comes out as a rant. But now I have tried to install various flavors of KDE/Plasma 5 on three different laptops. One is old basically not useable anymore but still I tried. Another is like 4 years old but with fresh SSD and so on ticks on nicely. The last was bought a couple of weeks ago.

None of them works with Plasma5.. I have tried 15.04 (horrorcrashes), I have tried 15.10 (installs sometimes but not always and goes dead after updates), 16.04 (admittedly a beta) and Manjaro rolling. 

On all of them it is kind of "roll the dice and see if it installs and remains OK after upgrade".  And I have used KDE/Kubuntu since the 3.something days so it is not like I am a novice on troubled upgrades.

But I have rolled back to KDE4 on all of them. It is more important to me that I can work and my family do their online/music/photo and so on business than some kind of everyday struggle to keep things working

I often get lost with the procedures, but I think it would be better to report an issue than asking here. On the other hand, I do not know where to report bugs and issues :(

"There's a Starman waiting in the sky, he'd like to come and meet us but he thinks he'd blow our minds" Yes David Bowie, you truly blew our minds.  I well remember hearing your music for the first time and that was Ziggy Stardust. Sitting in a classmate's b...
