Phoronix: Kubuntu 12.04 To Drop KDE Support For Firefox
Besides Canonical no longer sponsoring the Kubuntu distribution following the 12.04 LTS release of this KDE-focused Ubuntu derivative, there's some more changes this cycle. As a last minute change prior to next month's Kubuntu 12.04 release, Mozilla Firefox support is being dropped...
I figure this is (mostly) reasonable, though Ubuntu & Novell/SuSE should have pushed it upstream years ago...
And it looks like OpenSuSE is the saner option.
Maxim: Indeed. My Ubuntu computer doesn't suspend, only hibernates when wifi drivers are unloaded before hibernate.
And if it did suspend, the 3-cell battery would be gone
The proper solution is to figure out quirks and set them up, set up a GUI under Power Preferences or whatever that lets you (THE USER)
1 ) Select which options to enable (there are some computers where even reboot wouldn't work, though they're scarce)
2 ) Select modules to unload/quirks to apply
3 ) Test how it works.
“No longer willing to maintain the patch”??? Canonical, as usual, did nothing. It never was maintained by anyone from Canonical. The patch is a SUSE product and it's being dropped from Kubuntu because the patch was broken for Firefox 10. The patch was updated and is now being shipped to openSUSE users as part of the Firefox 11 update: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=746591
