I'll take this as a compliment for checkbox

Thanks for running the tests!

I'm curious about the test where it failed to detect when you inserted the usb
storage device. Could you tell me which one it was?

I know there's one of the tests where, if you plug in the device and
*immediately* press Test, it fails, because the drive still hasn't settled/isn't
mounted. You can press "test again" and see if it works this time, or, better
yet, let me know which test it was so we can fix it

Thanks for taking the time to report this back to me, I really appreciate it.

Regards,

What's the preferred package management frontend in Kubuntu?


sudo apt-get install

We used to have a nice one called KPackagekit but for some reason it was
replaced with Muon, which is the default now.

IMO, the last couple versions of Kpackagekit was pure excrement. I've
been using Synaptic. I don't mind Muon to much. Just use synaptic out of
habit.

Yep, I'm using 4.7.3... still, it has this awful issue:


I have INBOX folder with subfolders: Sent, Trash, ....



If I try to configure them all (default), all folders has mails,

except INBOX.... if I change server-side subscriptions, and disable

all folders but INBOX (root for others), then it shows messages...


Interesting, I'm not seeing that with Gmail, but I did just see it yesterday with a test account I setup on my work IMAP server (Mdaemon 9.x), I had to turn server side subscriptions off before I could see it. What email server are you connecting to?

Yeah, CPU usage too, nepomuk... and not related to kdepim, Strigi

still wants to re-index everything everytime I login.... I decided to

just disable it.... as a matter of fact, I don't yet know how to use

the indexes it creates, so.. it is not like I'm losing something vital

there.


If you switch your message list aggregation to Flat Date View, no grouping (rather than the default thread, group by date) does thhat improve things?

My main issue with the Muon package manager is sorting:

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=284181

although I have seen it hang during installs (as it appears to have done
even as we speak, while I'm trying to install checkbox).
