Maverick Meerkat disappointments

Ubuntu 10.10, with codename Maverick Meerkat, was released on 10 October 2010. So far it has only made me disappointed.

First of all, when I have the USB cable for my LG L1510SF touch screen, X crashes in xf86findOption. I have submitted bug reports via Apport, see Launchpad bug #657895.

Second, Spotify crashes on certain mouse events with the newer Qt version. More information:

Don’t upgrade if you want any of the above to work!

  1. That’s disappointing. 🙁 I haven’t had any issues so far, except the Spotify one. It crashed on me even in Lucid… as far as I can determine it’s as soon as it’s going to play a sound.

    Are you running the Netbook Remix btw?

  2. I try to use the Netbook Remix on the touch screen machine, but I’m not used to (=happy with) the new Unity interface yet…
