Q4OS 3.8 Centaurus KDE is very nice

Just installed it tonight usin the live DVD and it went flawlessly with the full desktop install. Used a combination of software center and synaptic for apps and updating.
Printer,wifi, multimedia/codecs were fine and performance was excellent.
Nice selection of apps and I had to add very few to get it the way I wanted.
Wallpapers, it was interesting as most of them were Debian, no Q4OS that I spotted but did add the KDE wallpapers and kudos to Jaerrib as I used his Q4OS Penguin theme with blue background.
The Debonaire theme is very nice but I opted for  Breeze Dark as its a bit easier on the eyes.

Im running a Dell E6420 laptop on an Edock and had no issues with it nor with my backlit keyboard.
Resource usage on reboot after setup was 447mbs at GUI which is impressive.

Its using KDE 5.14.5, a bit old but very stable, no issues and the 4.19 kernel for me is fine.
No issues with Calameres installer unlike some other distros Ive tried.

Will post back once Ive used it more but so far a very nice KDE distro,  big_smile

Do you have any other wallpapers?  Thanks CC


On a side note the live DVD was excellent as it worked fine and gave the user a good idea of what to expect. No hardware issues with the live DVD whatsoever.

Thanks Ill take a look.

I demo distros to various friends and clients and having wallpapers with the Q4OS logo and name are far preferable rather than ones that are abstract or only have the logo.

Re: Q4OS 3.8 Centaurus KDE is very nice

I probably don't have very many that meet your criteria. Most are either abstract or use the logo only, which doesn't fit your needs. I had contributed wallpapers to Manjaro a couple years ago. Their community tended to prefer branding everything. The people I asked on this forum were of an opposite mindset so I tried adjust my work accordingly. I can see the advantage of both though. I think branding benefits reviewers and screenshots primarily.

When your showing clients Q4OS its nice to have a logo plus Q4OS branded screen.  Agree, excellent for reviews and screenshots and given how many people are doing youtube video reviews, its nice to have.
