Prodded kdevelop-python/php unstable builds this morning as it seemed the 1.0.0 arm64 heapstrack builds from yesterday were not cleaned up yet, and as expected that made them succeed. Unfortunately if they get cleaned up again, I guess it will be back to failing.

I tried building with qmake instead, as it seems the babe maintainer uses this and does not much focus on successful builds with cmake. This works for Kubuntu with GCC on Artful and Bionic, but fails for Xenial. So reverted changes.

Another option might be to ship PIM on LTS releases, as business/institutions etc are more likely to use those, but excluded it from our interim isos. Make our releases with support for 9 months more lightweight ones.

rikmills added a comment to T7566: Discover Backends.

I think we should either have one backend or no backends installed automatically by default (so that we don't give the impression that we're endorsing one or the other).

rikmills added a comment to T7566: Discover Backends.

The snap backend is or was a proof of concept bit of code, and is still deliberately set to a default of OFF in cmake for building.

  • Maybe aim for Calamares installer after 18.04, and in the meantime overhaul the KDE/Qt fromt end for ubiquity.
  • For 18.04, possible port of update notifier/manager to Qt5 - distribution upgrades needed most of all, and in particular notification of new releases available. (Neon will also want an upgrade mechanism -> 18.04, so maybe another arm of collaboration).
  • Redesign and better looking driver manager front end - Something else Neon have started looking at with Ken from KDE VDG.

I am not keen on the wallpaper to be honest. As bright as it is, the default blue looks good to me for now. Also, unless we mess around trying symlinks, we'd have to manually switch it in the settings package on each plasma update.

To be honest I don't see the point of applying a sub-optimal theme to any other GTK apps, to make titlebars look slightly less ugly due to the application of another hack/change, which was arguably not really needed or sub-optimal itself.

It's there for me in Neon on my hardware. It's not a case that Neon does not install it, as it's all the same Kwin lib. Simply that Kwin only displays it as an option if it determines that your system supports that for the compositor.
