valorie added a comment to T8016: Disable KWin's default left touch screen edge.

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.

Thanks for the clarification, michaeltunnel. Totally onboard with this small change!

valorie added a comment to T7977: Show Application Names Instead of Description by Default (Kickoff).

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.

valorie added a comment to T7980: Add Ctrl+H as Alternative Shortcut for Alt+. to Toggle Show Hidden Files.

F8 does seem needlessly obscure. However, alt+H now give "Help" which does seem logical.

valorie added a comment to T7618: Turn on Slight RGB font hinting by default.

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.

valorie added a comment to T7856: Turn on Glide effect.

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.

valorie added a comment to T7857: Add a "Show Desktop" widget to the far right side of the default panel.

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.

They do come back indeed. I wonder if I turned that off sometime by mistake.

valorie added a comment to T7855: Turn off translucency when moving and resizing windows.

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.

Fri, Feb 2, 12:20 AM · Kubuntu
valorie added a comment to T7855: Turn off translucency when moving and resizing windows.

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.

valorie added a comment to T7848: Use Ubuntu font.

Clicked send too quickly. I would support this if our international users were behind it. If not, I'd rather stick with Noto.

Fri, Feb 2, 12:10 AM · Kubuntu
valorie added a comment to T7848: Use Ubuntu font.

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.

valorie added a comment to T7854: Use default wallpaper as background for KScreenlocker and SDDM lock screen.

This is *great* looking. I would support this, although the previous wallpaper I thought was pretty bad. This one is just awesome though.

valorie added a comment to T7848: Use Ubuntu font.

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.

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.
