Follow instructions for the last few kubuntu version, with the additional:

  • Problems seen in 19.xx seem to have been solved, so this is now a new safe version that works (test on multiple machines) - 20.10 also seems to work
  • Ubuntu requires an EFI partition - either select this partition (1GB should be more than enough) or create a FAT32 partition at /boot/efi
  • The network connections manager is now good enough to set up network - setup using the icon in the taskbar
  • Some packages don't appear on muon (e.g. nis), just use apt

Notes for RP below

  • cd /home/share/suse_hacks/kubuntu_16.04/; sudo ./install_remove_std_packages
  • sudo apt install tcsh ksh thunderbird cmake git mercurial subversion valgrind gimp gv inkscape texlive libreoffice-core libreoffice-base libreoffice-writer libreoffice-impress libreoffice-calc xfig fail2ban tmux libgtk-3-dev libgtk2.0-dev default-jdk p7zip remmina xrdp detox libncurses5
  • su
  • cp -f fail2ban-local.conf /etc/fail2ban/jail.d/fail2ban-local.conf; cp -f f2b-loop.conf /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/f2b-loop.conf; * systemctl enable fail2ban --now
  • if [ -f /lib/udev/uvcdynctrl ]; then sed -i 's/debug=1/debug=0/' /lib/udev/uvcdynctrl; fi
  • mkdir -p /eee/tmp; chown root:root /eee/tmp; chmod a+rwt /eee/tmp; cp -f idmapd.conf /etc/idmapd.conf; cp -f sudoers-local /etc/sudoers.d/; cp -f environment /etc/environment; systemctl add-wants multi-user.target rpcbind.service
  • ./install_eee_packages;

If you can't log-in without running ypbind after each reboot (and have tried fixes listed in previous versions) then comment out the line $YPBINDARGS=-no-dbus in /etc/default/nis. This only seems to be an issue with upgraded machines and not clean installs. Apparently, this option is no longer used and causes ypbind to silently fail on boot.
