Ubuntu released its latest iteration couple days ago if I’m not mistaken, and it’s known as Ubuntu 12.10.  Ubuntu 12.10 is nice and all, but I’ve noticed that its default desktop graphical user interface which is Unity is super sluggish for older hardware and virtual machine.  With that being said, if you have a newer computer hardware and better graphic card, Unity on Ubuntu 12.10 should be very responsive, and you won’t have a bad experience at all.  Anyhow, since I’m going to use Ubuntu 12.10 in a virtual environment for some time to come, this is why I had installed another desktop graphical user interface which is known as KDE for Ubuntu 12.10.  With KDE desktop graphical user interface, things should be zippier on Ubuntu 12.10 when Ubuntu runs on a virtual machine.  Anyhow, I have made a video on showing whoever wants to know how to install KDE desktop graphical user interface on Ubuntu 12.10, and you can check this video out right after the break.  Enjoy!!!
