Description

Ubuntu flagship and flavors are now generally distrusted. Probably without good reason.

It's not that https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ErrorTracker is not documented, but it's not very obvious to the user base (if at all). Trust can only be regained by helping people to get rid of their misconceptions. Granting them easy access to information plays an essential role in it. I wonder how can this be done in Kubuntu's case.

This task is not relevant to Kubuntu or KDE at all. If you want to make a request like this please submit it to the proper project. Kubuntu doesn't use ubuntu-report and KDE does not have any connection to what Ubuntu does or not.

Side note: Ubuntu and flavours are not "generally distrusted" as you say because that implies a majority and it is a very small minority that distrusts them. Ubuntu is still the largest distro and certainly the largest distro family ever so saying they are "generally distrusted" is inaccurate.

And this as well.

Kubuntu doesn't use ubuntu-report

@michaeltunnell I can use the terminal so I know that. Some people might not.

@michaeltunnell Agreed. Then some but still a significant number of people distrust them due to misconceptions based on insufficient exposure to information/documentation. I stand corrected :)

@raddison what is the actionable path forward here?

@ngraham Like .pdf file that is downloadable from Kubuntu's site explaining in great detail what the packages mentioned in the task's title are and which are and which aren't included in the Kubuntu ISO by default. Just an example tho.

Some people might even want to install 'ubuntu-report' as well after installing Kubuntu :) One never knows :)
