rikmills added a comment to D17375: Don't automatically refresh if the user already asked apt to do so.

That's what I thought. Then it doesn't fully fix 401810, since people not using Kubuntu or Neon will still not have a way to change the update frequency.

This helps for Kubuntu (and Neon ?) users, but what about everyone else?

Seems good to me, and a quick test on a stock Kubuntu install gets the updater registering new updates when the system does its own refresh.

@tsimonq2 is going to document, based on lubuntu's switch, what we would need to do. Once we have that then we can make an informed assessment on whether this can be targeted for 19.04.

rikmills added a comment to T9965: Consider installing exfat-fuse by default.

Can easily make a test exfat volume to mount in virtualbox, so should be simple to test. Similar code to install samba via packagekit exists in kdenetwork-filesharing source, so this should be possible.

Ok. Could be doable. My initial comment stands though. I would want a legal OK from higher up.

rikmills added a comment to R883:1523438: Summit update and merge (Indonesia).

Hi @Wantoyo , the Ubuntu packagers (namely @rikmills) noticed that you changed a lot of translated strings back to English.
The changes propagated to the stable LTS branch too (5.12), so as the packagers tried to update the LTS packages on Ubuntu, the Ubuntu stable release updated team is puzzled by this unusual change in stable branch.

Was this change intended?

rikmills added a comment to T9922: Install network-manager-openvpn-gnome by default.

Not sure I 100% believe this, as:

  • That package only contains the gnome config GUI and auth dialog.
  • On Kubuntu support/IRC recently, a couple of people successfully set up openvpn with just the network-manager-openvpn package (the gnome one installs this as a dep)

Will have to investigate properly...

rikmills added a comment to D16031: [SDDM theme] remove blur and increase UI contrast so that it's not required.

It's a bit frustrating to spend a lot of time in the phab task (T9658) getting consensus on a design, implement it, and then hear, "no, no, major elements of this design needs to be rethought." I understand that sometimes implementation reveals issues that were unforeseen during the original discussion, but let's keep the discussion in T9658 or else it will be very hard to follow scattered in two places.
