    Just finished installing. Te gui looks very nice and the fonts are great. F-Spot didn't work again so I got Solang instead. Got rid of Rhythmbox and Banshee is working great.

    Replaced Totem with mPlayer and installed Vlc.

    Everything works!

    Does the 9.10 loading screen turn black for like a second while loading for anyone else?

    I'm getting the feeling that Me and Mark are the only ones who actually like Totem. I always do, however, install mplayer with either the smplayer or gnome-mplayer front-end. Feeling zen, so it's the latter right now.

    For me I zap both the default media players and install VLC. I have a lot of esoteric media formats, and just getting VLC is much easier than getting all the codecs for the whole bunch.

    The only serious issue with Karmic I'm having is that Virtualbox is considerably slower than under Jaunty. I had run it with SMP (2 cpus) enabled, and its performance used to be excellent. Now under Karmic SMP is actually unusable on my system (Intel Core2Duo E8400 with 3 GHz). The best combination for me is 1 cpu + VT-x enabled - other users report a better performance with VT-x disabled, though.

    Some posters in the VB forum reported that using the real time kernel fixed the issue but it didn't in my case. (Besides, I shy away from a kernel maintained in universe.) Nevertheless this suggests that this issue is somehow kernel related.

    No such problems here, Nika updated her Ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 last Sunday and all went well. I'm interested whenever the people who have problems had a particular piece of hardware/drivers installed.

    2 machines running 9.10, one perfectly, one has an annoying brightness control bug.

    I think totem is a great lightweight movie player, but I use totem-xine as totem-gstreamer does not play my DVD's well.

    F-Spot works fine for me, but I know of other complaining about F-Spot not even loading up.

    I'm convinced that it runs smoother and does'nt bog down as much as Jaunty, both for Gnome and KDE, especially the KDE LiveCD is second-hand measurably faster.
