Ubuntu / Ubuntu + KDE / Kubuntu | Which do you use? Page 3
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 2, 2005
I used to use KDE exclusively, then I sold my laptop and bought a different one (slightly lower spec to save some cash) and the first thing I noticed is that even with a stripped down bare bones KDE install it runs like a kludge compared to everything else I have used.
So now I use Gnome, it provides a nice balance of features and responsiveness that runs really well on my 256Mb laptop!
How to start KDE automaticlly without typing "startx" then "startkde"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 29, 2004
How to start kde automaticlly without typing "startkde"? First I have to type "startx" first then type "startkde" to get KDE to start. I want to be able to start KDE automaticly when I type "startx". I googled about it and went to x.org and KDE websites I did not get a clear answer. I did a base install of slackware linux (when I say base install I did not install KDE or Gnome) then I downloaded and installed KDE 3.3.1 and all of it's dependencies with "installpkg" command (they were packages in .tgz format).
When I did some reading on it called for a .xinitrc file and I DONT EVEN HAVE ONE! I looked in the home directory as suggested I had un-hide my hidden files I even searched the X11 directory and entire hard drive and nothing! I don't even know how to create one! I took a look at the xorg.conf file for some kind of an answer to no avail. When I do get into KDE it has a annoying login terminal window open and when I close it KDE an

Personaly I think that KDE has better range of games.
I would like to see games like breakout, diamond and others in the Gnome-games package.

bouncing KDE ball

I added the bouncy ball widget to KDE, and now I can't remove it.
I set it to autobounce, so the ball won't stop long enough for me to close it......
Kde & Crossover/Crossover games menu entries
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 31, 2010
I recently installed KDE on my Ubuntu install and quite like it. Not bad considering I hated KDE 4 when it first came out
Anyway I have noticed an issue with the KDE menu. I have both Crossover and Crossover games installed and only ONE of the menu entries is accessable.
They both show but the submenu for Crossover games doesn't expand. I checked with the menu editor and the entries are there, they just don't show.
Both menus work perfectly in Gnome.
Any ideas? It's more annoying than anything but I would like it fixed
Ubuntu vs. SUSE, Gnome vs. KDE
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 15, 2006
I am planning on getting started with Linux soon. What peaked my interest is I just went on a 3 week vacation to Germany and was shocked how much I saw of Linux there. Two people I met only use Linux and another used Windows XP but only the Firefox browser. As well, at book stores I was shocked by how many magazines were related to Linux, mostly SUSE linux, and you didn't even see Mac magazines. When I talked to people in Germany though it seemed SUSE was by far the distribution of choice.
Now that I'm back in the US I decided to check into it. I have both Windows and Mac desktops/laptops. I plan to put it on potentially all of the computers I have. At first it is more to try out Linux and see what it's all about but I have a feeling I may switch the Windows machines completely to Linux. I'm a complete newbie to Linux though and am not sure which distribution to go with. I'm undecided between SUSE and Ubunku. It just seemed everything was SUSE in Germany but now that I'm res

NVIDIA 304.xx driver issues on Linux Mint 14 KDE
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 3, 2013
Today I installed Linux Mint 14 KDE edition on my 5-year old rig (a Core 2 Duo E8400 with 4 GB RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT video card). After installing the proprietary NVidia drivers from the repository (revision 304, package nvidia-current) I realized that I was unable to switch the scaling mode in non-native resolutions so that the aspect ratio is preserved. That was only the beginning of the problems though. Worse yet, when running applications (in particular, games) in non-native resolutions, e.g. under Wine, the screen commonly pans left/right/up/down revealing black areas around the actual game screen, which is commonly game-breaking (as soon as I mouse over to the screen corner the game screen moves away to reveal a black area beyond the game screen). There's no older version of the driver available in the repository, so I'm not sure if downgrading is actually a possibility - I tried installing a binary driver from NVidia website but that ended up killing my X server
KDE vs. Gnome
location: linux.com - date: March 3, 2010
So I'm a KDE supporter, and tend to look towards KDE for mosts of my desktops. I'm thinking about installing linux mint, and it's natively Gnome. I think the gnome configuration of mint is much better than Ubuntu, and I've heard that the KDE version(and other 'community' versions) if mint doesn't always quite live up to the updates and usefulness of the supported gnome version.
My question is whether it would be worth the less support for the KDE version or if I should just go with gnome. Note that I'm not really that against gnome, I just want to know if anyone has experience with their being a big difference between the two.
