Help, Bugs, HowTo  - 
 
Kubuntu guys, if you want to swap MySql for MariaDB in your Akonadi setup here is a how-to. I did (on 14.10 so version is 5.5 for my, not 5.6) and all Akonadi-depending stuff feels snappier

- 1st i run update:
sudo aptitude update
when it is done then:
sudo aptitude purge mysql-server-core-5.6 mysql-client-core-5.6
aptitute will tell it has many dependencies, many packages will be removed ... so it asks if i accept that solution - choose no (n)
then it will propose installing:

1) mariadb-client-core-10.0 [10.0.17-0ubuntu1 (vivid)]
2) mariadb-common [10.0.17-0ubuntu1 (vivid)]
3) mariadb-server-core-10.0 [10.0.17-0ubuntu1 (vivid)]

- if you accept this - mysql will be removed, mariadb (fork of mysql) will be installed, and akonadi will start without any issues.

Right, there goes the Turing test

Dear HP.com - since you insist I share on whatever social media while I am trying to get some support advice: your (to me) new web layout sucks. I can not find the simplest thing such as a driver but keeps getting lost in "pointers" that lead back to where I started. Perhaps you should worry less about Facebook, Twitter etc and instead go back to focusing on assisting those who look for support?? And please fire whoever redesigned your former, nicely working, support website

Kubuntu & KDE SC  - 
 
Dear all Kubuntus,

from my point of view Plasma/KDE5 is not mature enough for production use. That is how I see it and you are free to disagree.

I have one computer and I use to make a living. There is a degree to how much I can surrender a working stable environment to "new and shiny".

This is not meant as an offense to the developers who have spent
countless hours on the "5" environment.

What I dont get/understand is how many just seem to jump on to this
upgrade and did not expect serious breakages? Then go on to use XCFE or Lubuntu instead of, to me, simply staying where you are?

Use 14.04 or 14.10. If you want a newer kernel go mainline kernel ppa
(as I type this I am on kernel 4.1.rc2), for graphics there are several
ppa for Libreoffice again the same.

If you choose to go Plasma5 then EXPECT breakages and lack of functions. It is still in development (sorry devs but that is the truth) and you are likely to hit snags for at least 2 releases of Kubuntu.

With loads of respect to Kubuntu maintainers and developers

Yes I have had some issues, but also some improvements too. Been using Plasma 5 since the tech preview in Sept 2014. I found and reported a few bugs.
Some good fixes though. Like AV rendering in kdenlive, really pleased with that.
My message is, please please report the bugs, there really is a team of folks that work hard on bug fixing, but we can't fix what we don't know about 😍

Playing with 15.04 in a VM but having some issues. Can not find Lancelot that I find to be the best launcher? Where is kdeplasma-addons package?  Muon package manager seems to have issues too

+Smittie Smith It's ironic: i followed in a virtualbox machine the development of 15.04 and now, after the bare metal installation, i am experiencing bugs i've never seen in the VM.

The ultimate software tester: your children. Leave even a "rugged" linux installation in their hands and sooner or later it goes belly up
