    I had to switch to the xorg-edgers ppa about a month ago because my taskbar and the lockscreen would freeze immediately after logging in. I could still click on the taskbar to open apps, but of course it's a nightmare if you don't know what is currently opened. With the xorg-edgers ppa at least the taskbar is working again, however the lockscreen is now translucent or black. And I can't watch HTML5 videos in fullscreen.
    Yeah, I might try edgers if nothing else works. What I've done for the moment is to set sddm to auto login so that it bypasses the password screen. That works. But I need to get the screen locker to autostart so my computer is at least a little secure from people who might try to turn it on and access it.

    After installing flgrx-updates, it wouldn't even make it to sddm before freezing. Why is it so hard to installing working drivers?

      Same here on my PC with Kubuntu 15.04. Probably related to this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/66332...rnel-3-19-0-26
      Even though it says that it's fixed I still have the same problem I last tried it a few days ago..

          An error often occurrs because of official links administrators distraction, is not to publish previewes of the new system so to give the possibility to the entusisasts to advertise the forthcoming new operating system by the social network justa before they are released.

            Mr. Riddell is moving the Kubuntu user base from Canonical to his new employer Blue Systems.

            1) Set one: Cause Drama
            2) Step two: Move User Base
            3) Step three: Blue System Monetizes User Base
            4) Step four: Profit

              Hm... sounds kinda diabolical. Kinda sad there aren't any official updates to the situation though. Surely someone must know wth is going on, I hope?

                That's pure speculation, considering only vague accusations against him were made public and the whole thing went behind closed doors.
                But I am curious to see what happens after 15.10 and not releasing any statements after the initial one only adds to the drama.

                  Most likely Kubuntu will merge with Netrunner.

                    No. We're losing some of our most experienced developers, but we're bringing in new developers as well. The Kubuntu Council has met with the Ubuntu Community Council and I think we have peace and cooperation. KDE, Ubuntu and Debian are all healthy, and Kubuntu is made from all three. I believe we'll do well, long into the future. See the recent Kubuntu Podcast #5 for more detail: http://youtu.be/qGkjB4gCGhw

                      Aaahhh finally an official statement! Thanks for taking the time!

                      Sounds good.

                      So in other words; The forces have aligned and Kubuntu shall live on... right?

                      Cheers,
