Hi, I am very new to Ubuntu and being a KDE lover i decided to download Kubuntu... Everything is working fine at the moment except for one thing, I cant access the repository to download new files. I am wanting to download some basic games and media codecs using the Add/Remove program but they wont show. I did some browsing on the Ubuntu website and it told me to set the repository in Adept, so I did, but no change i still cant download new files.

The use of Debian repository for KUBUNTU
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 20, 2007
Good day, community!
The situation is as the following:
1. I have Kubuntu 6.06 installed on my PC
2. I need to extend the collection of existed
1. Do this via Internet
2. Use a set of two DVD with Debian that I have.
They contains a huge collection of .deb packages.
But I met a problem for the each of way:
1. I configured KPPP properly (specified modem settings,
my login and password), but it fails to establish connection.
Suppose some configuration files in /etc/ppp to be edited.
I tried to use WVDIAL. Helps, but anyway the speed is too slow
even to get the packages list (sudo apt-get update).
So, the only way for me is to try to use Debian DVDs. But:
2. I used "sudo apt-cdrom add" for each DVD. Then, run aptitude.
And I saw a lot of warning messages, that the packages are from
"untrusted source" and so on. On a whole, I couldn't install anything.
Can you help me? I'd like to know w
Adding a Live USB to a repository via command line [Kubuntu 10.04]
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 3, 2010
Couple of days I go I setup VLC using Kubuntu's graphic software manager, and installed the 3 plug-ins, one of which was related to pulse. After doing this sound stopped working in flash videos. I had read, not sure where, that Kubuntu didn't use pulse (which slipped my mind when setting up VLC).
So I make the mistake of removing everything which had pulse in it's name (again, via the graphic software manager). A message popped-up saying that some packages needed to be removed/edited (a LONG list, a big clue that I was doing something stupid I guess). I let it run it's course and after that it won't boot properly.
If I boot it normally it hangs at the Kubuntu screen with the five dots filling endlessly. If I press F1 it's stuck at "checking battery status."
Recovery mode boots, but the recovery option does nothing.
So I was wondering if I could boot into recovery mode and go into the terminal and add a live USB as a repository for apt, and try to salvage the insta
Linux Mint 13 KDE vs Kubuntu 12.04: Is Mint KDE really better?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 17, 2012
I'm trying to convert someone to a *buntu and I think KDE would be really perfect for him. However when I tried Kubuntu myself it ran decently, but I got a lot of crash reports etc. Also I read a few Kubuntu 12.04 reviews and they didn't seem to be really good either... Also a lot of people say Kubuntu is a bad KDE distro and much worse than the other *buntus. However most people seem to be really excited about Linux Mint KDE edition (which is based on Ubuntu, not Kubuntu).
So my question is: "Is Linux Mint KDE (as of version 13) really better than Kubuntu 12.04?"
I'm also looking at Cinnamon (which I'm probably going to "use" instead of KDE, if Linux Mint KDE is just as worse as Kubuntu). I myself am happily using Unity (it fits me just right), but I think maybe Unity is a bit to confusing (global menu bar, to distinguish running programs and closed programs in the dock etc.). However I myself am really fond of the search functionality and I woul
Ubuntu V.S. Kubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 24, 2007
Could some one please explain to me what the differences are between Ubuntu and Kubuntu? I don't really understand the Gnome V.S. KDE thing.
So from a users point of view what are the pluses and minus between the two, or does one just have a brown screen while the other is blue? one has the tool bar at the top of the screen the other has it at the bottom.
Currently I am running Feisty with and XP duel boot. ( haven't booted windows in months )
And on a second computer I am running Gutsy. Been thinking about giving Kubuntu a try just to see what it is like and what all it has.
If some one could tell me what to look out for so I will notice the diferances I would really appreciate it.
Ubuntu vs. Kubuntu vs. Xubuntu vs. Edubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 6, 2011
I have a big question:
I've been hearing a lot about other types of Ubuntu.
E.g. Ubuntu (itself), Xubuntu, etc.
But What is the point? Why not just use the original. I've tried Kubuntu and find that the only reasonable replacement. And that is just to have Ubuntu slow but look pretty. Is there any other use of Kubuntu? And what are the perks to Xubuntu and Edbuntu ? I mean what's the point of Xubuntu ? And how is Edbuntu suited to educational purposes?
Hello again, World!
I'd appreciate any kind of feedback.
Ubuntu vs Kubuntu ??
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 4, 2010
I have both the Ubuntu and Kubuntu 10.04 discs and was browsing them extensively today. I was a bit disappointed with Ubuntu, it seemed very sparce program-wise(must admit I'm spoilt as I have been using the 9.10 Ultimate Edition which packed with lovely goodies).
Kubuntu, which I see for the first time ever today, seems visually very different... surely there's more to it though.
What is the difference between the two? Is Kubuntu made for a specific purpose?
ubuntu studio vs kubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2011
Hello! What to install?
I like how kubuntu look and feel, but i keep in mind that the Kde is a little bit resource hungry.
On the other way, I was reading that ubuntu studio has some ''real time kernel'' or real time kernel patch -what is that? will make the operating system to process faster video and music editing or photo's as well?
Dose real time kernel from ubuntu studio make kde to move slighty faster?
I would like to use my laptop for everyday task's and Photo Editing (Photoshop emulated) that would be the primary used task, and second is to have a wordpress installed (mysql,php,apache) to work at my personal website locally and then uploda it to host's severs.
Ubuntu + KDE vs Kubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2011
Hi to all,
I don't know if this is the right section to post this question, but it's interesting for me to know if it's the same thing installing KDE on ubuntu or install Kubuntu directly. ( suppose you have the same base, eg. 10.04 )
Some people in forum says that it's not exactly the same thing. So, what are the differences?
Thank you very much!
