Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This is kind of... Well, good news, I suppose? It depends on where you allegiances lie, but it seems like Ubuntu is warming up to the idea of using Qt to develop applications. It's no secret that Qt is a far more advanced development framework than Gtk+, so it only makes sense for Ubuntu - a GNOME/Gtk+ distribution - is looking at it.

I have issues with compositing and an nvidia card.


Same comments apply: either install and then select compiz for KDE instead of Kwin as the default Window manager (via the default applications in system settings), or use the proprietary nvidia driver.

I wish that the Kwin developer hadn't saddled KDE 4.5 and every single KDE distribution with this issue, but it has been done now and if you are affected then you will need to adopt one or other of the workarounds if you want to use KDE 4.5.

I repeat for those who are apparently having a bit of trouble following this: this is not a Kubuntu issue, it is a KDE issue, specifically with the Kwin window manager in KDE 4.5. Every distribution that ships KDE 4.5 will have the exact same issues.

The problem with NVidia _is_ with the propritary NVidia driver. The new open source drivers works fine. First the binary driver had a long range of performance problems slowing KDE down, and now with most of performance problems solved (as long as you use OpenGL composition at least), all the latest versions have had large memory leaks in the GL driver ;)

That is unless you want to unlock nVidia's 3D and support compositing.

With Gnome you can use the proprietary drivers and use Compiz
