Or perhaps gray instead of blue?

I've noticed the single vs double click debate. Seemingly, the purpose of switching the default to double is to ease usability for some people coming from Windows. Fine.

Are you saying that Kubuntu should disable the behavior of apps that minimize to the system tray when closed, and that instead they should always quit instead?

ragreen updated subscribers of T8377: Make KSystemLog use Breeze theme when when run as root.

It must be fixed upstream, either by adopting PolKit (preferable) or by adding a hack like KDE Partition Manager does (less preferable).

@ngraham It's important for root apps to be visually consistent with the rest of the desktop but a different color scheme is advisable. Re-open at will.

Neon's selling point is it's a slim build. Several legacy apps shouldn't be included into the iso, but made readily available in the repo. I'll refer to them soon. At any rate, it's pretty annoying when some of those get pinned to Notifications by default.

I guess the readability of text was the reason to introduce the overlay in the first place because only blurring the background (like 5.8 seems to do) is not enough in general.

64 looks a nice compromise to me. On a large but not hi-res screen, 80+ starts to look a big much/odd IMO, and we have to take into account that large amount of our user base will be people not blessed with hi-dpi,
