We have gone through how you can upgrade your Dropbox to version 1.0 in Ubuntu, but that method won’t work for Kubuntu (which is running KDE).

KDE 4.5 is a milestone release that took several months to complete, fixing over 16,000 bugs. While it also added new features, the selling point of this release is the stability that typically comes with a x.5 version of KDE. The desktop, applications, and development platforms have matured, and many of the outstanding bugs have […]

The release of the newest version of Ubuntu is only 10 days away. Many sites, including MakeTechEasier have covered its pending arrival and given you a glimpse of the Beta version. Today we are going to take a look at Kubuntu, the KDE-based version of Ubuntu.
One thing that I love about Linux (and Ubuntu) is that it is fully customizable and I can configure it to the way that I want it.
