Kubuntu Jaunty on Samsung NC10

Kubuntu Jaunty on Samsung NC10

A while ago I posted about how one can install Kubuntu on a netbook without cd-rom device. Although there were some issues on the NC10 still it worked pretty neat. Two days ago Kubuntu Jaunty (9.10) was released. I updated my NC10 with this version and this is what I discovered:

  • Video artifacts in KDE login screen disappeared
  • Speakers are muted when plugging in earphones
  • Getting Wifi to work is a lot harder than the old Kubuntu version (especially 802.1x). I have to use knetworkmanager to make it work (sometimes it does not work at all).
  • The screen brightness can be set with the slider of the energy widget.

One thought on “Kubuntu Jaunty on Samsung NC10

  1. I’m fairly positive that Jaunty is version 9.04 (as it’s still April, thankfully 🙂 )

    Good to hear it works nicely for you! I’ve been running the beta and RC for a while on my laptops and just yesterday upgraded my workstation. This all worked fine, except for the fglrx Ati videodriver on my workstation, which I got to work after some searching.

    Time to upgrade xubuntu on my girlfriend’s NC10!
