Description

Kubuntu (/kuː.ˈbuːn.tuː/ koo-boon-too) is an official flavour of the Ubuntu operating system which uses the KDE Plasma Desktop instead of GNOME Shell. As part of the Ubuntu project, Kubuntu uses the same underlying systems. Every package in Kubuntu shares the same repositories as Ubuntu, and it is released regularly on the same schedule as Ubuntu.

sadly desktop email has been a sore spot on Linux for a long time. I think Thunderbird is likely the best of the current options for Kubuntu to include.

Something to keep in mind is that shipping without any of the PIM apps lets us avoid shipping with Akonadi, avoiding a pain point and big source of memory usage. Might also free up space on the ISO.

Moving to Tbird would make our lives easier. Still, this makes me sad. Perhaps if the Kmail team fixes the gmail issue we can revisit after the LTS is out the door?

LOL. The logical follow up, would be how much of the rest of the PIM app do we retain? The only one I use is Akregator, but I fully acknowledge that a RSS reader is slightly 'old hat' now. So I am not sure.

My vote is for Thunderbird. It's a reliable and feature-filled app and it looks great with the Breeze GTK theme. This drama with GMail support in KMail is itself a disqualifier IMO.

I have uploaded a stable branch git snapshot to Focal. tar was created with releaseme, so should be as complete with translations etc as one created by the KDE release process.

Ok. The daily ISO build tomorrow morning (~6 AM UTC) will contain elisa as the default music player. Lets see how that goes with testers.

FWIW I'm using Elisa full time now so I would not call it experimental or unstable. It is still missing a few features I'd like and can always use more polish of course, but it's actively developed, and I think it's a pretty safe choice.

Mauikit doesn't have a stable api yet and there wasn't any release of vvave yet.

I am minded to just go and do this, so at the very least if there are issues we have plenty of time to revert the change. Plus, real testing on more than just 1 or 2 test cases probably needs it going in the daily image?

I notice that we don't build vvave. I do abhor the name, but it has been released, it is KDE software, and some people like it. Building and getting it into our repos would make it easier to test.

Good choice. FWIW, the dev of Cantata said that he no longer uses it, the maintenance is now very limited.

Regarding the suggestion to use ROSA image writer, this may be my American perspective creeping in, but the .ru domain name of the download links might scare off some people. Sucks, but it is what it is. I wonder if Etcher (https://www.balena.io/etcher/) might be a more neutral recommendation.

This tool has been recommended for Neon for ages, and I didn't see any pushback.
