    You certainly can if you run Sway for instance.

        amazing, after waiting 12 hours for the download link to become available, i am unable to install it in KVM. I just hear the startup sound but am left with a black screen and the legacy xorg X cursor. Even the daily build from couple weeks ago worked better and i was able to install it.

        edit:switching from QXL to virtio graphics made it work. Never before has QXL been a problem, and it works faster as it is more simple.

        edit2: first time ever installing a Linux operating system, after selecting to not need a password to log in, i am asked not only to select user, but also password. This is the worst ubuntu for me yet.

            Nice, I'll be trying the Kubuntu beta to see if KDE these days is an equivalent or better alternative to Cinnamon.
            I kind of need to update my systems but I don't want to wait until summer for Linux Mint to be ready.

            Edit:
            Well, I have no idea what exactly they're offering for download on https://cdimages.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/daily-live/current/, but running the Live CD, it sure doesn't look like Kubuntu. I guess I have to wait for the full release.

              You can install ubuntu like normal and then" sudo apt install kubuntu-desktop" to get the kubuntu feel or "kde-full" and you get all applets.

              Like i said i just did the upgrade but i allready had the kde-full packages installed and they where all upgraded np, sad so that itÅ› still kde 5.27 and not 6.x.

                Which part of "beta" don't you quite understand?

                  the one where it works worse than the alpha.

                  QXL ius probably the most common virtualization graphics nowadays, and auto login is probably the most used configuration change from default. These being broken in a beta is pretty deep.

                    Yeah, I suppose so, but I run GNOME with GDM.

                      Mutter's explicit sync support landed for 46.1, which might be in the final Ubuntu release.
