mparillo added a comment to T10230: Kubuntu: Use the Ubuntu font unstead of Noto.

Wasn't this raised some time ago during the transition from Ubuntu fonts to Noto? Of course, I cannot find it, but IIRC, the dispositive factor was not the visual appeal of the font but the broadest possible coverage. Apparently, Noto fonts together cover all the scripts encoded in the Unicode standard. Certainly at the time, Ubuntu did not.

Would that make translations more difficult? That is, instead of merely substituting text, images need to be re-created?

mparillo added a comment to T8142: Plasma 5.8.9 for xenial backports testing.

Hi Marco,

I couldn't reproduce the possible issues you have described. However, a test like yours, just adding backports-landing could be flawed (see below).

Is it possible I need to install backports first, and only then install backports-landing?

They are 2 possible upgrade paths:
a) upgrading from a 'plain' xenial installation, i.e. without backports
b) upgrading from a xenial installation where you already have backports, i.e. plasma 5.8.8 among other things

If you are testing the upgrade path a), and it seems to me that's what you are doing, the correct way to proceed is:

  1. Add *both* backports and backports-landing via add-apt-repository
  2. Upgrade you system, For instance doing "apt update && apt dist-upgrade".

    The reason to do this is that backports might have packages that backports-landing isn't providing, and that could explain that packages being held back.

    Regards.

mparillo added a comment to T7911: Kubuntu should install PowerTOP and TLP and turn them on during installation : Publicity & Testing needed; re-evaluate for 18.10.

My vote is that the default configuration should be maximum performance, brightest screen, etc. when plugged in. I do not mind trading performance for battery life, but a sane default is to turn off power savings when plugged in, especially assuming most users power down their laptops (or at least suspend them) nightly.

IIRC Valorie got testers on real HW for one of the Alphas or Betas. I know I tested three scenarios in VMs (Live, Full Disk, Full Disk with Encrypted LVM) for pretty much every alpha and beta and at least one, probably two, maybe all the final release candidates.

If it is only one line of code, I vote for removing it. I have been getting that nag for years, and I have never installed flash on Kubuntu. Back when a lot of sites needed flash, I trusted that Chrome could handle it, and if there was some important content hidden behind flash, and I trusted the provider, then I copied the link and opened it in Chrome.
