Kubuntu rocks on Dell Inspiron E1705

Filed under
Ubuntu

I've finally installed Kubuntu in my Dell Notebook (a Inspiron E1705). It's just lovely. Kubuntu really "gets it"! It looks and performs great and its really easy to use.

The installer from the live CD worked great. It even set up my wireless network card (Intel one) without any issues. OK, yes, I had to manually add a few things here an there (such as 915resolution, a mapping for the media buttons, the SMP kernel, etc), but that did not take too long: altough I'm more of an 'rpm' guy, setting up the extra goodies was very, very easy and straight-forward just using EasyUbuntu and Adept or apt-get.
