Yikes. Sounds dreadful. I wonder did the bugfix releases clivejo and I
worked on get uploaded?
I have been so distracted with my KDE CI I have lost touch :(

> Kubuntu 16-04 Beta2 amd64 testing notes
> Platform: Samsung R710 Intel centrino 3Gb RAM, SSD Drives, NVidia
> Good solid start, with many of the features working, which includes
> resolution to some problems I had been having on 15.10. I did manage
> to find some elements that I believe require attention.
> Testing Notes
> 1 - Live ISO burnt to USB, and booted fine, but the Kubuntu Installer icon
> on the desktop was very small, and you could not see what it was, nor
> read what it said. I was also unable to resize this. There for there was no
> way of knowing what the was for, which would be a bad experience for
> new users wanting to install Kubuntu.
> 2 - At the end of the installation, the reboot dropped me to a black screen
> with a mouse arrow, and just sat there forever. In the end I had to resort
> to power cycling the machine.
> Some application problems
> Kicker > Applications > Graphics > Display and edit image files (Image
> Magick) - There is no icon, and it does not launch. My advice would be to
> remove this, as we have Gwenview sitting 2 entries below.
> Instant Messenger Contacts ( KDE-Telepathy )
> Kicker > Applications > Internet > Instant Messenger Contacts : I tried to
> connect an account, which offered me Telegram as an option, but it does
> not work, looks like a missing dependency
> "This IM Account cannot be created - a Telepathy Connection Manager
> named 'morse' is missing or it cannot handle protocol 'telegram'. Please
> try installing morse with your package manager."
> Also Video and Audio calling buttons are Greyed out - I read an article in
> Linux User and Developer about this, which suggests the problem is due
> to :-
> "Further, most users will have their Video call buttons greyed out, simply
> because either the telepathy-kde-call-ui or the Farstream Gstreamer
> codec, or its QT bindings, will be missing."
> We really should fix this :-D
> Kicker > Applications > Internet > KDE Instant messenger log viewer : I
> am a bit confused as to why we want this included in the base install
> Kicker > Applications > Internet > PIM Settings exporter has no icon set
> Kicker > Applications > Internet > SSH AskPass has no icon and does not
> launch, this should probably be left as a command line tool, and removed
> from this menu
> Kicker > Applications > Internet > Web Browser ( Firefox ) - I suggest this
> be placed at the top of the menu list, or if you want to maintain
> alphabetical consistency, then name it Firefox ( Web Browser ) and place
> it below Feed Reader
> Attempting to click on the Feeds icon in Kontact, results in a Crash of
> Akregator. When you then attempt to report the bug, you get the
> "The problem cannot be reported:
> You have some obsolete package versions installed. Please upgrade the
> following packages and check if the problem still occurs:
> gstreamer1.0-plugins-base, libboost-system1.58.0, libboost-thread1.58.0,
> libcups2, libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-0, libgstreamer1.0-0, libpcre16-3,
> libpcre3, libxerces-c3.1, ucf"
> Which appears to be an issue with Apport
> I setup a new Activity called Test, with a keyboard shortcut Ctl+Alt+1. The
> shortcuts do not work. I tried also setting a short cut for the default
> activity to Ctl+Alt+d but that did not work either. I think Activity
> shortcuts have been broken for a while
> I tried loading the CPU Monitor, and Network monitor, they appear on
> the desktop, but there are no configuration handles, resizing handles,
> and no graphics.
> I tried the digital which did show the time, and clicking would display
> calendar, but the same problem exists with configuration and resizing.
> Hope this is useful
