I've already upgraded my PC to Karmic 9.10 release candidate. Everything seems to work properly and is OK.
Have you already installed it on your computer?

I have Ubuntu on my laptop and it seems to be running alright. Really like the setup a lot better than the XP on my desktop.... and I like XP.


Hey Obama, keep the change! I want my dollar back.

The final release should be out next thursday, so I am going to wait until then. Looks like next weekend will be spent upgrading a laptop, netbook and server PC to Ubuntu9.10.

Ubuntu is a pretty solid and good distro. I'd use it for general use any day. However, there's one issue: Until Ubuntu fixes the issues it has with VNC and not sending data correctly, I'll stick with Fedora if I have to remote into it.

When are they going to get over those stupid names. All it does is create confusion.

never had any issues using VNC on Ubuntu, what exactly is wrong with it?

It connects fine, but half of the time, the it's just a grey screen; the other half, it takes 4-5 minutes for it to show the screen.

I've played with the VNC settings in both /etc and /~, with no result for a quick screen---if at all. In Fedora, It just had to change the settings in /~.

My mind is blank on the filenames right now, nor do I have access to them.  Sad

I'm going to wait until the final release before upgrading. I have 4 computers running it now, and one of them I will wait, as it is a Mythbuntu server that I don't want to upset, as it would be quite hard to find a place to back up all 6TB of stuff on it.

Works fine on my end. The only issues I've had were with trying to connect with it with Vista, so I had to use another flavour of VNC on the connecting end.



Yay Pudding!

I use Ubuntu as a dekstop operating system all the time now. I love it. It does pretty much everything I need it to do. And of course, there's the added security element too. I better not go into too much detail, as nobody likes fanboys! At the moment, I am using Fedora's "Nodoka" theme which is quite nice. Still, I wish GNOME would completely overhaul the default theme and make it look more modern.

I did update to the beta version of 9.10 early on. What a mistake, it messed many things up. I ended up having to reinstall 9.04. Entirely my fault though!

Have you tried adding "DisallowTCP=false" to "/etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom"?

My new Karmic desktop...



I did a clean install so I could reformat my drives to the Ext4 filesystem. It wasn't a completely painless process:

1. Permissions on my 2nd hard drive were assigned to root after reformatting. Had to change them back to myself.

2. The shared NTFS partition on my boot drive wasn't assigned as a separate drive. I had to hunt for it in the file system.

3. I was hit by this bug, which made web browsing very painful until I found a functioning work-around.

4. Had to spend some time fiddling with VirtualBox to get USB support working again.

On the plus side, my sound was set up correctly out of the box (a first), the dafault theme is more attractive and some rendering problems I was having in DigiKam seem to be resolved.
