I have been testing the Alternative image Rocky-9.0-KDE-x86_64-20220806.0.iso
Installed really smooth, and everything was running nice. Then I discovered that the default file manager “Dolphin” was not able to write to SMB shares. Contacted KDE/Dolphin people, and they advised:
“21.08.3 has not been supported for almost a year. Please complain to your distribution.”
After I asked if there might be a simple fix like ‘uninstall then reinstall from another repo’ they replied:
“You’ll have to talk to your distribution, your entire software stack is out of support.”
Since yesterday the supplied KDE “Discover” app for installing software is crashing mercilessly, every time it finds an update for something ( and now just terminates every time I try to open it). Is there a newer “KDE” iso in the works??
Is there any good way to repair this installation or should I just nuke it and start over fresh?? (maybe try the XFCE?). I really liked the KDE desktop, but if its not ready for prime time, then open to something different…
