Kubuntu against my old Bodhi Linux

Ok I will have to request your help on that one. Because i am thinking of moving over to linux fully.

Do you have a way of making EA games work too with origin?

So let’s start with a nice and simple picture of my desktop in the VM(virtualbox).
My desktop

I am using a custom app for KDE called latte-dock that gives me the docker like fell in MAC.

Moving on to the htop tests:
Mem test with htop

CPU test with htop

Problems encountered in my VM:

Font some times doesn’t scale good
Artefacts even after installing correctly guest additions.


This happens on right click

This is a font glitch

It is faster then bodhi but suffers from the problems that I shown in this post.

I hope that this review can be helpful for others decide what they want to do and what they can expect if they use Kubuntu in virtualbox.

Those problems shouldn’t appear if Kubuntu is installed on a physical hard disk.

I will have to reinstall bodhi linux in my vm to make the comparison tomorrow.

I avoid EA and it’s stuff for moral reasons, but from my understanding it works fine too. Look at the lutris website to see how well a given game works.


Thanks for answering my request.

Just out of curiosity, do you use the default or custom Ubuntu kernel?
(collections of patches, schedulers, …).

Are you happy with the default shell? Bash bores me a little. Which shell do you think is “better”? (bash, ksh, zsh, …)

Hi @fun2src .

I use the default kernel never needed to change it, especially because I am on vm(virtualbox).
I love to use zsh with antigen, because it has autocompletion and a lot of other benefits that come packed as custom packages.

Here are some cool links

Also for the terminal I am using Terminology from here http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2013/12/install-terminology-ubuntu-linux/

My old thread should be OK while i find out why I can’t install from the image.

Also last time i went with an Ubuntu and added the Moksha desktop on top.

Found the issue

Here are the images, also not glitches
Desktop image default

htop CPU


htop mem

Biger images here

All stock kernel for me.

I use ZSH with a lot of plugins. ^.^;

Is it supposed to be installable? Pure-Live-Running images are not uncommon.

Moksha? What be?

Exceptionally tiny htop images, what’s the info in them? ^.^;

it is install-able but you need to search deep in the menu to find it after you enter the test mode. use this for ref https://www.bodhilinux.com/w/installation-instructions/

This is moksha desktop http://www.bodhilinux.com/moksha-desktop/

Weird i will redo the screenshots.
I need to find a new screenshot tool the one in bodhi has bugs in 10 min we should have the new shots.

UPDATE my tool is working the upload from the forum software is not working correctly and makes my images small it resizes them so i used an external service.


scrot has not yet managed to disappoint me… I’m happy with it.

Thanks for sharing
Looks cool and seems easy to use from the docs that can be found here https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/how-to-take-screenshots-in-linux-with-scrot/

I use spectacle to take screenshots in linux. Supports a variety of methods of screenshots, can upload directly to a variety of services, comes with kde, etc… ^.^

I use ImageMagick, Spectacle (KDE), GNOME Screenshot and Firefox Screenshots.

Sometimes I use VLC!


What type of LInux do you use and what tools do you use for dev? @fun2src

My first Linux distribution was Caldera. I’ve been using Debian GNU/Linux for many years (“potato”, “woody” … “bullseye”).

Desktop: Debian stable (“buster”).
Laptop: Debian testing/unstable (APT pinning).

Minimal GNOME (gnome-shell) & minimal KDE.

Oh so your native OS is Linux and you are using Debian. Never could have guessed it Ineteresting tools some of them are new to me especially taiga.io.

I saw that you are on the react band so I would like to ask on front-end do you get the same result in Firefox on Linux as in Windows or Mac?

Or how do you test your front-end, browser wise?

I never used Windows. I’m sorry! :smiley:
The last Microsoft OS I used was MS-DOS 3.30 (floppy 3 1/2).
I used Basic (MSX), MS-DOS, OS/2 Merlin, Sun Solaris (SPARC), OpenSolaris, Plan 9 (Bell Labs), GNU Hurd (multiserver microkernel), Linux and OSX (macOS).

Same result? I didn’t notice anything relevant.

I’m leaving MacOS. In my personal opinion: I think the latest operating system is unpresentable. My first Mac was an iMac G5 rev A. (OSX Panther).
Leopard was bad. Catalina is horrible. However, I don’t want to start an OS war.

I use Jest & Enzyme.
