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

The whole point of good defaults is that they should work well for the majority of people and use cases without needing to be changed.

raddison added a comment to T8480: Make VLC VDG-compliant.

VLC is a Qt 5 app, which is great. We should get in touch with the devs and propose them to package it with breeze icons. https://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?t=145054

Since one can customize his/her setup, your proposal doesn't bother me at all. Different people are likely to favor one setup over the other.

This is my Neon setup. Hotcorner at the top-right seems reasonable to me. No matter how you set it up, there will always be somebody complaining.

It's not that https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ErrorTracker is not documented, but it's not very obvious to the user base (if at all). Trust can only be regained by helping people to get rid of their misconceptions. Granting them easy access to information plays an essential role in it. I wonder how can this be done in Kubuntu's case.

Now the question is: is this a Kubuntu issue or an Ubuntu issue? Can you reproduce the issue with a fresh install of regular old Ubuntu 18.04 too? If so, it should be reported on launchpad. If not, it can stay here.
