I have just finished upgrading my computer to the 9.04 version of Kubuntu (Ubuntu with KDE as the default window manager). I was looking forward to trying the new notification system and the new versiion of KDE.
I decided to do the upgrade online, instead of downloading the CD, and upgrading from it. The I started the upgrade at 10pm on Thursday, and at 8am on Friday, the download finally finished. I assume that the slow download was caused because of the number of people doing the upgrades at the same time.
Once the upgrade pretty much everything worked. I did have to do a few things to make things work
- Install plasma-widget-network-manager with apt-get. I needed this in order to get KDE to use my wireless network
- Followed the steps on this page to make sound work well with PulseAudio
- Reset permissions on /usr/lib/libaoss.so*. I had done this before, but setting permissions fixes audio for VMware Workstation.
- Uses this page as an example to reconfigure my trackpad. It looks like now, trackpads are not configured in xorg.conf but are not configured with hal. I was able to reapply my old configuration in the new way
