Updating kde menu

07 Jan

If you’ve been waiting for this I’d like to thank you for your patience.Upgrade for a reason “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.Among his concerns was that none of the applications looked, felt, or worked alike.He proposed the creation of not merely a set of applications but a desktop environment in which users could expect things to look, feel, and work consistently.Then, to make it even more intriguing, Cent OS used to not boot on this box, until now. If you recall my Cent OS 6 games, it was simply amazing and fast and cool and good. In fact, no Red Hat distro would, adding to the growing list of distros that caused me grief and thus ended up becoming yet another infamous entry on my rejection reports.

But UEFIposes no threat, and in the past, we've even seen the ancient version 6 run pretty well on SSD. Booted okay, if slowly, but then I had no Wireless. The RTL8723BE module is not a part of the Cent OS live KDE edition, probably because it's proprietary and such. For the duration of the live session, the network remained stable, which is more than can be said of most other modern distros we tested this spring.

The Plasma Desktop, being one of the most recognized projects of KDE, is the default desktop environment on many Linux distributions, such as open SUSE, Mageia, Chakra, Kubuntu, Manjaro Linux, and PCLinux OS.

It was also the default desktop environment on PC-BSD, but was later replaced with Lumina, a desktop environment which, like KDE, is written in C and Qt.

I was really keen to move forward, so I manually downloaded the driver kmod RPM from ELRepo, installed it, and then added the kernel module into memory. depmod -a modprobe rtl8723be This triggered an oops, but it didn't crash the host: Message from [email protected] at Jun 16 ... [Network Manager:1130] And more of the verbose vomit in the messages, with some of the misc information removed, and only the important pieces in there.

Open my Software & Security page, check the last half a dozen reviews and revel in all the stupidity and this sad inconsistency that we were handed out.
