Hi all,

I just tried the current "nightly" builds on a fresh Ubuntu Quantal and 
it seems there are still several major problems left. I'll describe my 

When TDM started up, it gave the following error:
Cannot open theme file /opt/trinity/share/apps/kdm/themes/kubuntu-trinity
There was also a process called tdm_greet using about 99,8% of my CPU.
I then shut down tdm thought the init script.
I symlinked kdm to tdm in the above path and this problem went away. I 
got a nice login screen, but I was unable to type anything in it at all! 
I could click on things, but couldn't use my keyboard at all.

I wanted to test a bit more, so I started another X11 server and ran the 
starttde script in it. This got me to the desktop, but with a kicker 
process using 100% of my CPU and I couldn't do anything till I did a 
kill -9 on it.

Are these problems known or should I report them and try to get more 
information? How stable should the current nightly builds be expected to be?

Best regards,
