I see @aacid's point about the announcment pages. The new style *looks* much better to me, but is more difficult to read, because each line is longer. When my eye gets to the end of one line, it is hard to find the beginning of the next line. Because it's more work, my eyes tell the rest of my brain: stop reading this.

Could not Muon be updated in this way as well? It now uses a package icon for all packages which seems a waste of space.

Bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/exfat-utils/+bug/1649537 links to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/legal/intellectualproperty/mtl/exfat-licensing.aspx which explicitly states:
My only suggestion: KDE creates the efficient, powerful Plasma desktop environment, hundreds of high-quality applications and the many software libraries that support them.

I love the new Konquis - all of them -- but this use is not good in my opinion. Distracting and somewhat pointless. I would rather see a solid color or gradient. Simple and elegant.

Rik's list is great! Palapelli is pretty cool too. Single player puzzles. Adding a few games would be excellent. I play klondike from kpat multiple times per week.

This sounds exciting. Where are we on this? Should we discuss on Kubuntu-devel?

Thank you ragreen. I failed at finding it in KDE sources.

All checked for redundancy.

As Rik said in irc, " if we are too push that on people by default, then we need a good case for it being of benefit to that majority, and no detriment to others."
Perhaps by 18.10 we'll have Simple Menu, the One Menu to Rule Them All
@acrouthamel good point; done.
So Peruse, Cutelyst, kio-stash, systemdgenie, Plasma Mycroft and kube remain unpackaged or not uploaded.

Nice! Those are some of my favorites from the past too. +1

I've been using KDE software since around 2002, and Plasma since the very beginning. I think I never changed the default of single-click, but since I can't seem to find a setting for that, without consulting some of those "how-to"s I'll just assume so. Even when using Windows and before that Mac (and before that Coleco ADAM) I've never figured out when it is appropriate to double-click and when single. I'm sorry to say that in KDE software that sense of mild bewilderment is unchanged, which is why I often resort to the commandline when possible.

mparillo, what packages besides Firefox would be excluded by your no-gtk rule?
Feb 26 2018
Any movement on this behind the scenes? Kubuntu would love not to have to keep up a Kubuntu-only driver manager, and Neon doesn't want to do that either. Surely other distros who use Discover have similar needs?
Feb 19 2018
A non-coder's perspective: please provide a config file rather than patching. Users can merely remove the config file if they don't like the change.
Feb 16 2018
Thanks for the clarification, michaeltunnel. Totally onboard with this small change!
Feb 15 2018
I have no clue (and never had) which is kicker and which is kickoff! So +1 for me for showing the name somewhere -- and also the description. The popups in the icon-only panel (pinned) do show this now.
F8 does seem needlessly obscure. However, alt+H now give "Help" which does seem logical.
Feb 6 2018
I think you are doing the job. Rick created the task, so I guess he should chime in when he can.
Feb 2 2018
The side-by-side is quite dramatic.
I will add comments to your email. I wanted to check out all the links before doing so.
I have those setting already, and I think I set them after reading someone crab about the defaults. I don't know that these are the best settings for the most people, so I guess am a very lazy +1 on this.
Now that I have compositing turned back on, I see the glide effect. I had missed that; I think we used to have it on by default.
This is a truly cool widget, and I did miss the ability to do that easily when leaving my computer. So +1 for this suggestion as well.
Aha, now I see the difference. And while I sort of like it is no professional, as you say.
They do come back indeed. I wonder if I turned that off sometime by mistake.
I have nvidia which I imagine supports it, but I rarely meddle with settings. How would I know if compositing were on or off? I don't think I see shadows.
Turning that effect on and off for me shows no difference when resizing or moving windows, so I have no opinion. On the other hand, turning off effects seems sane unless there is wide-spread support for having them.
Clicked send too quickly. I would support this if our international users were behind it. If not, I'd rather stick with Noto.
As far as I know, it does not. Look at the choices you are offered if you want Noto, in contrast to what you are offered if you choose Ubuntu.
This is *great* looking. I would support this, although the previous wallpaper I thought was pretty bad. This one is just awesome though.
Feb 1 2018
I followed the discussion in KDE which led to the adoption of Noto, and it was based mostly on their coverage of the world, in particular Asian font families, and right-to-left fonts often used in west Asia and some places in Africa. This really is a huge advantage around the world.

VikingRedWolf, really good to see you joining in here!

Wow, I love this second iteration, Andy! Thanks so much for your work. <3
Jan 28 2018
Hey Andy, thanks for the quick work! Of course the k has to be in there, and I agree on the eye. Maybe a bit more open and friendly. The beak is tough enough to fight off malware. :-)
Jan 15 2018
Oh gosh another competition. Please no. On the other hand, it would be cool if people felt so inclined that they could contribute wallpapers with the proper licensing. That could perhaps be done through store.kde.org with a tag of Kubuntu?
Jan 11 2018
For now I added some information at https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved#Ways_to_contribute
Dec 27 2017
We do blacklist it: http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/seeds/kubuntu.bionic/desktop
Package now called network-manager-config-connectivity-ubuntu

Well, it would be nice to see snaps offered for those who want them. Are the KDE store offerings available through Discover?

Reasoned criticism is necessary -- and this fellow can help us make the LTS great.
Budgie seems interesting -- anybody have some names of folks we should start chatting with?
Nov 7 2017
Hi folks, I was invited to add input here, so I thought it over. This year was a very heavy travel year for me, and I can't face international travel so soon, so I'll bow out. Have a great time though!
Nov 3 2017
+1 from me, although I always install flash and then block by default. :-)

One thing we've discussed a few times in the past is putting some text somewhere in the applications or other menu places. Putting info into installer slides is useful perhaps, for those who see them, but once the install is done, the information is gone. I don't know where such text could live, however.

Evidently there is a calendar function here -- would be cool to integrate that for stuff like this!
Clive, what an excellent idea. Sorry I didn't see this for 3 months! But would be an excellent addition for our LTS.

I'll try again to get BBB working.
Thanks, Rik! That vision was a great start, and I think we've come a long way since then. And I think this is the perfect time to take stock and lay new plans.
Can we get 1. a post to the Council ML about this with a CC to the developers ml, and 2. a link to Ovi's Kubuntu Vision?
Sep 15 2017
I like all but the wallpaper -- unless we have it set to change when there is new wallpaper, in which case if the majority wants it, I'm fine with it.

If it does what ngraham says it does, and it is small, of course we should include it.

Thanks for adding me to all these tasks, skadinna!

Oh, and removing KDE-Telepathy should be done if we're not giving people a working client now. I've not been able to get it to work in Zesty. I plan on upgrading to the alpha once it is released.
