The mod to the default 'ice cold' here to make a dark version also looks interesting.

I suggest for 19.10 we could stay with cluster (default plasma 5.15).

rikmills added a comment to D21593: [showdesktop][minimzeall] Reduce the maximum panel icon size.

This also needs to be applied to the minimizeall widget, as this is the directly (right click) selectable alternative to showdesktop widget, so the icon size change would revert if a user switched the panel widget to this.

  1. 4 seems a lot, and stacking 4 vertically in the pager makes them too tiny.
  2. Well, if we should have more than one VD by default, then the pager has a desirable use. If we are not, then it just does not show, but appears should a user add some. So either way, I can't see a case for removing it.

Yeah. We do get user complaints about the ugly icon though. It's nicer-looking in a newer Frameworks release, but it's still odd to have one color icon in a panel with otherwise nothing but monochrome icons.

rikmills added a comment to T10576: Reduce default panel height by a tiny bit.

I considered such a change, but rejected it as it also messes up the scaling of our Kickoff menu icon in an unacceptable way. I did it in a different way though, so will have another play to see if it goes better this way, but I fear 30 for a panel height may be pushing it too small.

I would argue not all done. As per https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lmdb/+bug/1812122 the uploads for Bionic and Cosmic are still only in the proposed pocket, and require testing/verification (confirmed on the bug) to allow the fixed packages to reach the updates pocket where they ship to normal users.

I'll have to look at how much actual size it might add. We are very close to OVERSIZE for the 2GB limit, which gets me complaining emails now if we exceed it, and a warning on our image download page. I recently had to take libreoffice-base off the iso to creep under the limit again.

However, just removing files from the repo doesn't actually remove them from users' machines; their packaging system does that. Perhaps we should alert packagers that for the 5.15 release, they shouldn't remove these files from users' machines when they disappear from the repo.

We already had the 11pt discussion, and decided against. It just makes the things bigger and more clownish looking (as if a 3 year old with bad eyesight had designed it), and bumps the UI scaling in ways that hurt on older hardware with lower size/res screens.
