Rik's list is great! Palapelli is pretty cool too. Single player puzzles. Adding a few games would be excellent. I play klondike from kpat multiple times per week.

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'd vote for Krita over all the others. It's a fantastic piece of software, on par with Photoshop and arguably outdoes GIMP.

sharvey added a comment to T9127: Ship some KDE games with Cosmic.

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.

These are not the smallest of apps in terms of adding to our iso size. Not sure I am convinced.

Awesome. Since we're in a cherry-picking mood, let me pre-warn you that if we get good results during the 5.14 beta, I'd like to consider cherry-picking https://cgit.kde.org/plasma-desktop.git/commit/?id=a4c724173b5c6a59331587f2e5db746dffbabdc6 too, or else we're going to get a lot of user anger over it in Cosmic.

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.

I have translated the Neon slideshow so I'm pretty sure the text is not incorporated into images. Anyway, making the text translatable is a necessity IMO. Non-English users will not be impressed by a partially translated installer.

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.
