  1. Oh, thanks for mentioning that. That´s a shame! PCLOS is very polished, but they missed that one.

    Which KDE-Distro would You recommend? Mandriva, Kubuntu, OpenSUSE, MintKDE? I would prefer an encrypted installation. I think this is possible via the alternative installer of Kubuntu.

    Chakra isn´t stable yet, setting up Arch is too much fiddling around for me.

  2. Thank You very much for this How-To! A couple of days ago I failed doing this. I went with an installation of PCLOS, as it is based on Mandriva, yet features all codecs preinstalled. Plus both run relatively fast for using KDE4 as their DE.
