I will do a new ISO in a few days/weeks with the proper neon repo configuration, so I think it is better to wait for that.
Neon repos are ready for 18.04, so a installable beta ISO will come soon.

Oh really? Are they rolling that out to stable soon?

Is it (reasonably) safe to use the repos with Mate 18.04 ?

Yes, except for wine-rt, everything else should be working as usual.

Actually I'm using wine staging on 16.04 without any problems.

Thanks @falkTX,
I'm keen to install and it is my first mac dual boot, so I have extra effort of refind etc, so it would be good to have a known reasonably working install. At the moment, I'm working off the livecd, adding a swap (kind of unnecessary), and working off a partition.
I'm getting good results, but have a reasonably high DSP Load, reaching 27% with only Ardour (plus plugins) running. There are few enough Xruns with a 5ms latency to consider live recording, which I'm going to do in the next hour or so, to see if it can handle it.

Yes, I use Ubuntu Mate 18.04 with KXstudio. It's very safe
. Just 9 audio softwares lost their icons.

Neon is testing upgrades to 18.04. Working... smooth-ish. Only issue so far seems to be fixing my PPAs and other sources.

Your PPAs are quite mixed in terms of the release that they reference from memory. Should one update the apt sources.lists for the kxstudio packages to reference bionic?

you mean the ones in the ISO?
yeah, it was a weird mix of xenial and bionic stuff.
if you installed it, well, it will be too messy now to revert to proper packages, I said I would not support that.

I have a new ISO ready, but detected some issues that need to be fixed first. (mainly that there is no internet after install :P)
I am using 18.04 myself now to give a real test case of what is needed.
In a few days or weeks I will have a beta image for testing, one that can actually be installed.

PS: the 18.04 I have now is installed from the ISO I made, so we know installing will work. :D

What I found was that the /etc/resolv.conf was present and may have permissions issues. If you delete it and then connect, then it is replaced with a valid address containing resolv.conf. If that doesn't work then a symlink to /run/NetworkManager/resolv.conf worked for me. In order to generate the correct /etc/resolv.conf you might need to delete the old one and then restart NetworkManager or networking with systemctl.
I can't wait to see it btw... :D

networking issues aside KXStudio worked great straight out of the box, but after `dist-upgrade` I cannot add plugins to a session with Claudia. (Image attached)

I have tried a bisection by manually installing packages that would have been installed by the upgrade but haven't found the culprit yet. The same is true when installing Claudia on non KXStudio Ubuntu machines from 14.04 to 18.04 8(

Is there a minimal set of repo's to use for 18.04+? Are there instructions/scripts for building the KXS packages from their sources?

Cheers
