Bug Report  - 
 
Hey all.  On my tablet under files/playlist choosing a source shows that some of the folders at the top are folders but the others are shown as 0 byte files.  I've removed app data and added the host again.  Still no luck.  The 0 byte files have the play icons.  On my phone it works without a hitch.  The source shows all the folders as folders.  Both devices are running Android 5+.

Is there a way to resolve this?

After doing the 15.04 install the install worked great.  It was a clean fresh with no prior install.  Yesterday after work I couldn't get KDE to load.  I was at the Kubuntu logo. I hit ESC and saw the message that a start job was waiting on screen with an unlimited time out.  No matter what I tried I can't get it to load the desktop. Networking and ssh aren't loaded so I can't ssh in.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hm, I know there was that bad kernel if you were running btrfs which caused similar problems, figured that was the issue

Not sure if this is KDE specific, but it happened after I did the KUBUNTU 15.04 install.  Hangs up at boot on waiting for screen with an unlimited time out.  I can't get past it. It's a new install, clean and fresh with the updates done.  Nothing will allow me to terminate that and move on.  Things like SSH and networking are not enabled. Any ideas or is this a defect of systemd?

I did the unthinkable – left Linux behind and lived in the Windows 10 technical preview as my primary computing environment. Here's what I learned.

After reading this I downloaded and installed it in a VM. This is my second look at the technical preview as the first was for a short time.  It is essentially Win 8.x with some tweaks.

After looking at this I was alarmed.  The start menu, LoL.  The tiles are a waste as they are little more than advertising spaces. 

I began to remove each tile that I felt was unnecessary.  That left me with 4 that I sized to small.  That left me with a big empty space where the start menu was.

That search box is designed to try to replace Google search -- why search Google when you can search here.  This leads me to believe that this is Microsoft using their monopoly in OSes to gain a monopoly in search.

The search box was too big.  Online I found how to turn it into an icon.  Heh, you can''t just size it.  More waste of space.

I don't get it.  What's wrong with these developers?  Don't they understand us?  Is it that they are so much of a monopolist that they can't figure out that we want?  It seems they imitate everything poorly.

Been looking at Plasma 5. I had in the past and gave up.  I'm about to now too.  In the center of my screen it says (rough):

plasma 5 could not start process unable to create io-slave klauncher said unknown protocol file

When I go to change wallpapers (folder for the slideshow) it gives me three popup boxes telling me errors.  When I try to select the folder with all my wallpapers it won't allow that.  Nothing happens. 

There are other annoyances too,  Can''t drag an icon from the kicker menu to the panel to set up icons there.  When I try to drag one down it enlarges the space, slides the task bar over but won't show the icon.  Can't slide the taskbar back to the left unless I choose the burger menu on the far right bottom in the system tray area.

There are many more.  This is just the start.  Is this alpha software?  I've plasma 5.2 installed from the kubuntu ppa next-backports.

No app allows for "set wallpaper".  When

FWIW I got a stable install of 5.2 running on 14.10 but only after the PPA ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports and related packages (which I'd had installed but forgotten about) were purged from the system, check that and see how you go.

It would be helpful if the kubuntu.org website was updated to reflect the deprecation of the next-backports PPA for 14.10.
