I installed Kubuntu 7.04 but could not get VPN access working. After some
research I found that I needed some packages that seemed to be specific to
the ubuntu desktop (i.e. gnome) so I installed the ubuntu desktop from adept.
The VPN then worked fine. Next I ran some new updates including the new
After a reboot my keyboard repeats the keys so quickly that I couldn't login
due to repeated keys in my passwd each time. Took awhile to figure this out,
I disabled this in the KDE control cntr and it seems ok now. The bigger issue
is that now my system seems dog-slow, even when typing at the command line in
a konsole window.
I have 2 questions
(1) How do I debug this ?
(2) anyone know what specific packages I can install and get the VPN bit
working without the need for all of ubuntu desktop?
Thanks in advance
