I've read one this website that there are problems with Ubuntu 18.04 such as suspending issues or possibly even GRUB2 issues. Are these issues fixed yet or have they been addressed in Linux Mint?

Please post a link to the suspected problems. But there is always Ubuntu 18.04.1.

Good to know everyone. :thumbup2:  BTW it looks like Kubuntu 18.04 is only supported for three years unlike Ubuntu 18.04 which is five. https://youtu.be/c1IMcYAAxkk?t=9

I wonder why thats for? Also dose Kubuntu have a GUI based driver manager like Linux Mint does?

Well yes officially kubuntu only has 3 years of official support but one can keep it updated regardless beyond that.

Also yes the driver manager is there in kubuntu

Just a slightly off topic note here......If this topics title was ...'heard there is a problem in win 10'.....the page count would be enormous...the replies would come fast and furious.

 

However,...seeing the topics title relates to ubuntu etc, the page count is 1, and we are struggling to get beyond 8 or so replies....... :hysterical:

 Yes, but that's not entirely due to Ubuntu being less problematic than W10, there's also the vast disparity between the number of people using Ubuntu and W10 that needs to be considered.

 

Now personally I'm no fan whatsoever of W10, however the reason it has a lot of complaints against it, is in no small way due to the enormously large number of people that are using it.

Yes but also look how fast it took to make a path, if this was windows it would take a while.

Sure Ubuntu isnt perfect and Canonical has made mistakes but its still faster on the uptake

Thanks, So when you say keep it updated beyond that are you talking about an OS upgrade?

No I mean you can still keep the base updated so stuff like the kernel will be able to update, stuff like Firefox and everything else will be fine as well. It's KDE itself that's the problem with kubuntu as canonical really doesn't support KDE and if you want the latest version of KDE you're going to have to use something like KDE back ports or KDE Neon. But yes you can use it's beyond the suggested support as it will still get the Ubuntu updates
