bug one (not a big bug but why?):
every time i start pc (that's ok i think) or i start something with audio (like i'm reading a txt then i put some music or open youtube) i hear like a "thump" sound from the speakers, every time.
in alsamixer from console i checked the automute to off (what is it?) but nothing change
it's like the os is shutting down the sound card every time is not actively used, it's not a problem because my speakers are somehow low and not big, but what if i have some powerful ones? anyway this should not happen every time i play something after a silence.

bug two:
if i shut down the pc, the pc restart itself after like 3 seconds.
i've not tried yet to disable wake on lan (dunno if i have it on or off in bios) but anyway with windows i don't have this problem.

bug three:
wine just doesn't works.

i could add that discover looks like in an alpha stage but it's for another time. (i just use synaptic if i don't find something, and it happens A LOT)

can someone help me? i don't want to give up right now but those are just bugs.

These sound more like general Linux or Ubuntu bugs, not specific to Neon's Plasma packaging.

As for Wine, 'just doesn't work' means very little. Wine very often requires a lot of fiddling and tweaking to get some Windows software to run. If you are having problems installing wine, there are topics here on the subject.

means that if i install something with the label "stable" i think that i can just use it without any problem.
so "kde neon" is stable? ok.
i go to discover, search about wine in discover, i instal wine and winetricks and q4wine , and it just doesnt work, so what an user is supposed to do?

ok so why a forum about kde neon if any bug related about the system is someone else problem?

Because wine is out of the scope of Neon, even if you can install it with discover. Please note, that KDE Neon is not a distro !

I had the same problem with the 'thumping' speaker. I solved it thusly:

Code: Select all
echo 0 > /sys/module/snd_hda_intel/parameters/power_save


As you rightly surmised, the system was turning off the sound card after a short timeout to save power, and when it turns back on upon demand... thump!
