upgrade from ubuntu 10.10 to kubuntu 11.04 unstable

Asked by MalcolmFerguson on 2011-04-17

I would like to switch to using KDE desktop instead of Gnome or Unity. Is it better/safer to instal Kubuntu-Desktop before or after the version upgrade?

kde has the same issues!

I'd do it after, fewer packages to upgrade ;)

Opinion.
I'd backup my data and install KDE from scratch to avoid huge data mixture and start with a clean architecture.

I had the same problem kubuntu 10.10 to kubuntu 11.04 horribly unstable. Had to wipe system clean and re-install kubuntu 10.10 . It knocked out my sound card. I'm going to wait until the end of June to upgrade.

Can you help with this problem?
