elcste added a comment to T9965: Consider installing exfat-fuse by default.

FWIW, Ubuntu MATE (and it looks like Ubuntu Kylin) includes exfat-fuse (from fuse-exfat) and exfat-utils.

michaeltunnell added a comment to T8252: Replace Ubiquity with Calamares in 19.04.

I think this is a good idea overall but I would like to point out that by switching to Calamares the minimal install option would be lost. I think a lot of people are fans of that feature so if it can be reimplemented in Calamares prior to official switch I think that would be a good idea.

@tsimonq2 is going to document, based on lubuntu's switch, what we would need to do. Once we have that then we can make an informed assessment on whether this can be targeted for 19.04.

If not, then another option could be to make the warning message in Dolphin not so absurdly technical and instead explain what packages need to be installed for it to work.

That's something we should do anyway. Can you file a bug on bugs.kde.org and preferably attach a screenshot depicting the current error message? I'm semi-familiar with the code in question and may be able to offer up a quick fix.

Not sure I 100% believe this, as:

  • That package only contains the gnome config GUI and auth dialog.
  • On Kubuntu support/IRC recently, a couple of people successfully set up openvpn with just the network-manager-openvpn package (the gnome one installs this as a dep)

Will have to investigate properly...

Anything you can trim away? IIRC, Kubuntu ships with a full boat of System and Utility apps, which a lot of users might not need. I don't know how much space you can shave away with small apps like that - just thinking out loud.

I vote for KPatience and KMahjong. They're two very good-looking games, proving that Linux games aren't pixellated messes from the 1980s. Plus, they're sort-of "classics", included in a lot of distros and even competing OSes like iOS and Windows. It would give Kubuntu a well-rounded feeling as a complete and user-friendly distro.

At the moment it's just a proposal/idea. I'll be testing this out on Cosmic once I get a test rig set up. Then I can provide a definitive package list. Of course, folks already using Cosmic can feel free to try following the above instructions , and then see if the global menu works if they add a Global Menu plasmoid somewhere.

You also tend to formulate your words in an accusatory and inflammatory way that puts people on the defensive.

I intend no harm. Lower your shields :)

Then please stop accusing.

Another actionable path: purge all of Ubuntu's crash handlers from the iso. If users want them, they can apt install them. KDE strives for privacy software. Shouldn't Kubuntu as well?

As the release manager, I will not agree to this. Flawed apport might be, but it is *not* snoopware. In fact, I very much wish that Dr. Konqui would be expanded to allow kde-bug packagename as apport facilitates via ubuntu-bug packagename. This is entirely under the control of the user and make quality bug reporting easy.

Filing issues like this on phab without otherwise interacting with the Kubuntu team is counter-productive. We very much want increased interaction with our upstream KDE, which is why we have our Phab instance here. At least assign the issue to someone so that we can dialog. Just filing an issue without any interaction is like shouting into an empty room. Frustrating and exhausting for no purpose.

Oh! Okay. I stand corrected. It is astonishing how elegant a slideshow can be with just a few well-chosen images and just a bit of text. The installer should probably not be a user manual.
