    [kubuntu] Re: Plasma crashing regularly

    I did the same path from LTS 14.04-->.10-->15.04. All was well until 15.04. It's probably Plasma 5, but dang, completely hosed my OS. Good thing I like distro hopping (and keep all my data on...

    [SOLVED] Re: Nvidia GTX660

    Maybe I'm missing something, but why are y'all pushing 3.04 (circa 2012) drivers? Is it because it's 'certified'? I'm not following here at all when the latest proprietary is 340.32. It's not like...

    I'm reading conflicting reports and articles. Is KDE5 live/prime-time/done with alpha-beta-rc? I'd rather get it as it released on ubuntu repository rather than neon. Just curious.
  7. [all variants] Re: Any reason to upgrade Kernel on LTS?

    I get that and have done it playing around with 13.04/13.10 - but now I just wanna do the LTS thing. I guess my better question is - does Ubuntu take into account of these fixes to the kernel and...
  8. [all variants] Any reason to upgrade Kernel on LTS?

    Now that 3.16 is out and has a goodly amount of improvements, is this a good reason to upgrade the kernel on LTS boxes? I just don't know how Ubuntu handles new kernel feature-sets and bug fixes.
  9. Re: What will Ubuntu 14.10 be like (6 years old thread)

    So, what you're saying is that Canonical forgot to feed the top 100, they all died a miserable, slow death ... hence, Unity was born out of panic? I'll take that as an answer! :KS Agreed, good,...

    Re: USB Not Booting

    Check priority of what boots first in your UEFI. Put USB at top (or whatever you end up booting with). I've always had great luck using Unetbootin as the .iso installer onto my USB drive and double...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Installing in a VM under Windows: which virtualization software to use?
