If you are looking for something lightweight, then go for LXLE or Cub Linux, later is real eye candy. Antix MX is also real light, based on a stripped XFCE. Or you can check NetRunner if as you say KDE is your thing.

Fatdog64 or Puppy are cool, few things to learn about users, save-files or installs and so on but cool.

I've tried Linux Mint, but it has issues like when I'm typing, the touchpad will randomly activate and delete what im typing or will go inbetween a word.

Peppermint OS looks nice, but I'm not a big fan of the "internet" based apps.

Kubuntu I love, but I can't get the Super/Windows key to activate the menu, and it's super heavy on resources.

Ubuntu Gnome really doesn't let you customize...

Xubuntu/Lubuntu look dated.


What are some distros you'd reccomend that are based on Ubuntu...?

maybe get off the beaten path of main lining Distros.

I use void, it is fast install fast start up, fast updates, fast install stuff, fast shut down. lots of desktops to choose from.

as far as your touch pad doing what you say. Yep I hate it when that happens. you just need to turn it off, or set it up to not work while typing.
