    is kubuntu 11.10 out as a stable release then? May try a live cd if it is. I've read there have been nvidia issues with ubuntu, is this still the case with kubuntu as its built on ubuntu?

    Sorry for the noob questions, and if this looks weird. I'm using a mobile for this.

    Ah and by a stable release for kubuntu I meant a long term support release. My bad.

    is the network manager bug still present in kubuntu 11.10 or it is fixed.

    I tried 11.04 , l had to use terminal to connect to my DSL connection.

    The(?) NetworkManager plasmoid bug(s) was(were) fixed a long time ago in Kubuntu 11.04. I was using wicd for a while, then at some point a few months ago I did a fresh install and a full system update before logging into my user account for the first time. When I tried NetworkManager, it connected to my wifi flawlessly, so no more wicd for me... although I still like wicd's ability to use a curses interface.

    YMMV, but it might be worth it to try a fresh install of Kubuntu just to see if everything works. If not,
    Code:
    apt-get install wicd-kde
    and drop NetworkManager again.

    Maybe I misunderstood, but isn't 11.10 supposed to be released today, the 13th? The countdown says another day to go.
    Thanks.

    I am hoping this new release will fix the problems with being unable to run a second monitor.
    Neither of my laptops (one with a fresh install of 11.04) can support a second monitor. On the other laptop it worked fine until 11.04. I gather it is something to do with Unity that is screwing it up.

    The time varies with each release, but don't expect it to be at any particular hour of the day. The announcement won't be posted until the image has synced to all the global mirrors, and nobody will begin that process until all testing is complete for the release image... and possibly a few bugs squashed if any show stoppers are found. At my last look, the Kubuntu CD images had some tests still incomplete.

    I seem to recall 11.04 came out at around 6 p.m. for the U.S. East Coast, but other releases have happened at wildly varying times.
