View Full Version : [kubuntu] Kubuntu 9.10 still fails to connect to wireless networks with a hidden SSID?

After abandoning Kubuntu 9.04 for its incapability to connect to wireless networks with a hidden SSID (see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1146029) I thought lets have a new look at Kubuntu 9.10. Hey, half a year to fix such a major bug should be enough I'd say. But what imagines my amazement, in the "known issues" list on Kubuntu's release page it still mentions this issue!

So I must conclude that Kubuntu 9.10 still doesn't not work out-of-the box with wireless networks with a hidden SSID? Unbelievable. It seems there is no right-minded project management involved in the development of Kubuntu. Instead of fixing major bugs they focus on beatifying the installer. Geez!

I waited a lot and did my best to investigate the possibilities to move away from Windows XP to Linux but this is the limit, I'm going to buy Windows 7.

It's frustrating...guess I'm going back to gnome.
