Kubuntu Welcome
Closed, SealedPublic


The idea of a Welcome center like how Mint has and I believe Ubuntu Mate was thought of by clive last cycle but nothing came of it. Since it still is VERY early in this cycle maybe we could get a working POC (Proof of Concept) to show to the community (Kubuntu Forums?) and get some feedback. Thoughts?

Linux Mint:: https://github.com/linuxmint/mintwelcome

Ubuntu Mate:: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-mate-welcome


  • Documentation: docs.kubuntu.org
  • Drivers (opens our Driver Manager)
  • Software (opens Discover)
  • Forums (Kubuntu Forums)

Nothing came of it because the idea got shot down as people don't want something that is considered nagware on their system. In addition to my -devel ML email [1], I got very negative feedback via off list email and also IRC so I dropped it, therefore I personally won't be involved in working on this.
