@transhour: I hadn't noticed any problems until I moved to 11.10. I think it's funny considering I got laughed at for saying I was thinking about holding off on switching over. Oh well, onto a new DE and experience I guess. Now I just have to remember to do dist-upgrade now or manually update ecore so Enlightenment stays happy.

Thanks guys for sitting through this thread. Maybe around xmas I'll have time to install Kubuntu again.
what is bhodi?

i was having the problem in 11.04 ubuntu, and debian testing...i've had it once in 11.10 when i went to go do the rage wine test.

Bodhi Linux is Ubuntu running the Enlightenment DE/WM, pretty much. It's stripped of most of the bloaty apps too.

Rookie - the hassle you've had, have you considered switching to another distro? I'd pitch Arch, but it'll take you another day to set up your first time. Plus it's bleeding-edge, so no gurantee of stability. If it's just Kubuntu that's toast, why not stick with SUSE (I see that listed in your sig)? Or PCLinuxOS, that's quite a nice one

Arch would be nice but I couldn't get it working and then of course I just imagine how quick I'd screw that one up. So I've got Bodhi running with just about everything I want out of it and I'm pretty happy since it actually only took like an hour tops to finish everything. As for suse I just got tired of it's little quirks so I've only used it as a back up distro and PCLinuxOS was atrocious the last time I used it so kind of still holding a grudge.

I guess the good thing is this hassle has moved me to try something new. Hopefully Bodhi will work without problems because I'm starting think Enlightenment might just replace KDE as my fav DE.

Will I'll revive this thread when I get around to Kubuntu again and if I still have problems.

@transhour: Is it weird that I didn't notice the openGL/xrender compositing problems until 11.10? I was using the same drivers in 11.04 that I had in 11.10 and the only thing that stood out was that I might have been using one version older KDE.

emerge -uDNpv world && emerge --depclean && revdep-rebuild

perfect everytime. My suggestion to you would be to learn how to maintain a source distro, instead of flailing around, hoping and praying that whoever built the binary packages for you did it right.

i've certainly been there.
stable again

I had a similar issue a while back with my ATI card. KDE 4.2 didn't work as you described and the culprit was OpenGL.

Honestly I have had better stability and Speed from my windows installs on my netbook. Also I have lost count of how many times an update has killed my linux install so I wouldn't necessarily say its always more stable
