    I will remove the staging-kde-applications.

    I also got KDE Plasma 5.18.2 quite a few hours ago and it all went well without a hitch.

    The problem with Desktop Widgets going for a walk about has yet to be resolved on my system, so I shifted my Hard Disk Space Usage to the top left corner and now it stays put!

    Yeah, well, what went BOOM is something else then. It's neon Testing... :·) just coincidentally it got 5.18.2.
    And it did it (and keeps doing it) at boot.
    It's a total freeze. Panel moves to the left, network notification freezes in place, analog clock has immovable seconds hand, Latte is shown but unresponsive. The mouse moves. Ctrl-alt-del does nothing.

    I'll update 20.04 and see what it does, shall I.

    [EDIT] on 20.04, after update and reboot, no BOOM.
    But it's still on 5.18.1.

    The graphic drivers did not add anything at this stage whereas the oibaf certainly adds packages on a daily basis. I do this because my system has an AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL / 870 Graphics adapter. Currently there is no Linux driver for this card from AMD.
    That is because AMD uses and supports the open amdgpu driver, and Mesa. Their AMDGPU-PRO is for professional graphics workstation usage, so seldom adds anything for most users, and is actually based on the open driver. I can see AMD not having a PRO driver for this integrated (with Intel) GPU.

    There are now too many mesa PPAs, but oibaf is one of the best, but some don't like the daily updates.

    The Padoka PPA is another long running PPA that is updated less often, though it has been a month since the last update there.
    If you are a gamer, there are some others, I believe one if not both are maintained by different Valve developers.:

    https://launchpad.net/~kisak/+archive/ubuntu/kisak-mesa

    Using the first one, I did see a small but noticeable improvement in Rise of the Tomb Raider as well as Metro Exodus.
    I have not used the second one since I upgraded to a much newer refurb PC, and 'downgraded' the RX 560 to an older but more powerful RX 480 gpu


    The newest AMD cards, especially the super high end ones require a much newer kernel

    There'll be no kaboom as long as you avoid adding the following (unsupported) PPA:

    ppa:project-K9/ppa

    and then installing the package: Illudium-Q-36ESM.deb

    O_o? Why do you say that? Is it some sort of malware? A true piece of crap? Or is it just extremely outdated?

    Thanks very much for the alternative drivers for the AMD card. I decided to try https://launchpad.net/~ernstp/+archive/ubuntu/mesaaco. Using glmark2, I got the fastest glmark2 score of 2422. My fastest score with oibaf was 3587 on the 10th Feb this year. I decided to remove the software source mesaaso in Muon and enable oibaf. Unfortunately I did not get any updates from oibaf. So as to not waste time, I decided to re-install and start again.

    I found it interesting that when I used glmark2 after this fresh installation, the score was 839 I added the oibaf ppa and, with this new installation, the fastest glmark2 score was now 2520. My current kernel version is 5.4.0-17.

    I decide to remove, the following packages to make sure the provided default AMD drivers were not implicated in the performance.

    • xserver-xorg-amdgpu


    • xserver-xorg-video-all


    This change made no difference. I found it quite useful reading the proposed solutions given at https://linuxconfig.org/amd-radeon-u...r-installation. The comment here was that oibaf was ahead of the stable default opensource driver. To avoid frequent downloads from oibaf, I sometimes disable this ppa in Moun package manager.

    Getting it here. Is this an inconvenience error, or something more? Specifically, should one wait to reboot until this is fixed?
