I mainly wanted to try the recent kubuntu release, because it is using the new Plasma 5 as its desktop. I downloaded the iso “kubuntu-15.04-desktop-amd64.iso” using “ktorrent”. Supposedly, torrents check the validity of the download, but I rechecked the sha256 checksum to be sure. It was fine.
I then copied to a USB flashdrive, using the “dd_rescue” command in opensuse. That went well. I later booted and tested as a live system, where it seemed to do okay. But I wanted to run it after installing, for better testing. So I did an install.
