View Full Version : [kubuntu] Lucid + KDE 4.5.0 GM SC + AMD HD5xxx Linux Catalyst = Bliss

Apparently, the KDE (and Kwin in particular!) development team found and successfully executed those last nitpicky bugs that plagued the RCs and nightlies leading up to the now-available (via Kubuntu-Backports) KDE 4.5 SC, because it is now at least as stable as KDE 4.4.4 (which is Kubuntu Lucid's default), even with the AMD proprietary drivers on HD5xxx (Evergreen) GPUs. I have been able to bring back a KDE theme (Glassified) that I haven't been able to use since 4.3.5 (Glassified didn't look right in SC 4.4.x, and had issues due to the performance issues with previous iterations of the Plasma Workspace 4.4.x).

The Improved Kubuntu is a keeper.
