I am starting to grow more comfortable with the KDE desktop. Quick keys are starting to become habit, I am enjoying the visuals and smoothness. Ipod support in amarok is okay although not yet 100% there in my opinion. Kpackagekit still gives me cryptic messages which seem more about the programming underneath than user messages – one recommending that I should be forking. Using plain old apt-get installs the apps without complaint.
I have changed the theme to darker colours and played around with different theme sets. The kubuntu default colours are far too light and “in your face”. Glassified and Thin Glow are both desktop themes with much to admire except that I didn’t think they were without their issues.
