Kubuntu 12.10 beta 1 screen shots

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

The first beta of Kubuntu 12.10 has been released. It, of course, features an updated kernel (3.5.3), KDE 4.9, and new graphical applications for multimedia use.

Unlike Ubuntu 12.10 beta 1, this release of Kubuntu still makes the alternate installer CD ISO installation image available for download. And also unlike the graphical installer of Ubuntu 12.10 beta 1, that of Kubuntu 12.10 beta 1 does not yet have preliminary support for LVM, the Linux Logical Volume Manager, and full disk encryption, and there is no indication that those features will even make it into the installer by late October when the final stable version is released.

Here are a few screen shots from a test installation of this beta edition of Kubuntu.

The login screen now has an entry for a guest user account, just like in Ubuntu‘s.
