Kubuntu has had a few package managers over the years…..
Anyone remember Kynaptic? Probably not. It’s primary complaint? “It’s not Synaptic”
Adept many people remember from Hardy, though it had been in Kubuntu since Breezy.
It’s lack of Synapticness was still a bone of contention.
And then there was Adept 3, for a bit.
Nothing Synaptical there
Poor KPK slogged on, despite its’ being reviled by many, often a major item on many peoples’ recommendations for the List Of Things To Replace After Installing.
Now enter the scrappy Muon
We find a spanking new program, full of Synapticality, and more. Created by a Kubuntu developer, to boot .
Hallelujah! Now we are nearing the Holy Grail of KDE package managers, at least for Debian based systems. Synapicites rejoice!
What has poor KPackageKit been doing the past 6 months? Not giving up without a fight, that’s what!
KPK arrives in Kubuntu 10.10 dressed for success. With an application-centric interface, new features, tools, and improvements, we finally have a default package manager to be proud of. I sure am floored by it.
Kubuntu users now have two quality KDE-based package management tools tools to choose from. How cool is that?
