Indeed, we need the text to remain text, rather than be being embedded into images. Not only would that break the translation workflow, it would make changing anything (including translations) an order of magnitude harder.

No, I truly do not know what you mean. Apport is just a simple crash reporter tool. It discloses everything it will submit. It doesn't send any user data anywhere without the user's explicit consent. It's also disabled on LTS releases already. I'm not sure what problem you're trying to solve.

It should have been obvious as soon as the defaults were changed. That way upstream could have been engaged earlier or the altering couldn't have been delayed. It was an unfortunate happening. All I'm saying is that maybe we can learn something from it. Lol, I'm not blaming anyone. It was OUR failure.

Nobody knew about the upstream bug until we were actually using the new setting. That's how bugs get found.

Wed, Aug 1, 5:37 PM · Kubuntu
raddison added a comment to T8607: Faulty text rendering on file drag - 18.04 release.

It was a upstream bug indeed. Which should have been sorted out before and not after altering the defaults. So the order was all wrong.

Wed, Aug 1, 5:33 PM · Kubuntu
ngraham added a comment to T8607: Faulty text rendering on file drag - 18.04 release.

It's an upstream bug, and it would have to be fixed there anyway. In fact, the fact that Slight RGB font hinting is not the default setting upstream is itself a bug, so once upstream fixed that bug, Kubuntu would have experienced the issue in question anyway regardless of whether or not we made this change ourselves.

ngraham added a comment to T7979: Use kicker by default for Application Launcher : Wait until 18.10; re-test.

On the subject of Kickoff vs Kicker, it goes far beyond the (legitimate and important) desire to be friendly to new users and not-very-technically-proficient users. Rather, Kickoff suffers significant usability problems and productivity reducers for expert users like us, too. The most prominent of them is the agonizingly slow Applications tab, which has no "All Apps" view and requires a large amount of precision mousing to navigate between the categories.

That's not constructive, @raddison. If divergence from upstream defaults is inappropriate, then we wouldn't really have distros at all. We're all trying to make Kubuntu better. If you'd rather argue than do that, you're welcome to go do it somewhere else. If you'd like to stick around, please avoid impugning other people's motivations and using charged language ("just a a front-end for propaganda"). Thanks.

Whatever you like, but I can't shake the feeling that you're pushing your own agenda, instead of the wider community's. You're also implying that the user base is not very smart. I don't know who on earth coined this "new user" concept that is void of any real significance and it's just a a front-end for propaganda. The user is expected to learn how the desktop works and all these deviations from upstream defaults are not very smart. This is not addressed to anyone in particular. Changing some defaults won't make Kubuntu any better.

ngraham added a comment to T9151: Move default hotcorner to top-left corner.

I don't think in practice it would be a problem to have the hotcorner separated from the Desktop Toolbox button. I wouldn't be in favor of moving the Desktop Toolbox patch to the left again because it's always supposed to have been be on the right with RTL keyboard layouts. Only a bug was preventing this, which has since been fixed upstream; when we revert our patch for the 5.13 timeframe, the Desktop Toolbox will remain on the right.
