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.

I guess we are staying with the default. I must admit, I don't hate it (much) now.

For now that is in our kubuntu-desktop -settings package. If we start shipping more things like that, might be worth splitting off to a kubuntu-plasma-addons package or something like that

I would love to see this as default in Kubuntu! I would like to migrate my fathers PC from Windows 7 to Kubuntu in 2020 and the GTK-file-picker in firefox is one the main usability problems for him, because he does a lot of image uploading in firefox.

@rikmills

  1. I don't think 4 is a lot. I think it is a good number for productivity and also looks great in a grid view.
  2. this might be an unpopular opinion but I think the pager in the panel should not even be there. It should be removed entirely.
    • yes, with more than 2 it's pretty bad, it effectively becomes worthless especially if you have multiple monitors.
      • so when someone does increase it more than 2 . . . they have to manually remove it, or ignore it, anyway.
    • instead Kubuntu should ship a button that simply activates the Desktop Grid. (just a simple kwin command, here's a demo)
      • there is an icon already available to do this in the Breeze icons as well so no extra work there.

+1 for making it available by default as an alternative.

I don't know what the technical hurdles would be but I do think it would be a good option as an alternative. The Simple Menu is one of the best alternative menus in the KDE Store so I think it would be beneficial to have it included as an option in Kubuntu.

The mod to the default 'ice cold' here to make a dark version also looks interesting.

I suggest for 19.10 we could stay with cluster (default plasma 5.15).

I'm biased of course, but I recommend using Ice Cold, the new 5.16 default wallpaper. I think it looks fantastic! Just my opinion. :)

ericadams added a comment to T10573: Virtual Desktops & Desktop Grid Suggestions for Kubuntu.

I think having two at least makes the feature visible whereas right now it's essentially hidden unless a user knows what virtual desktops are and how to enable them. I'm not sure how many people use virtual desktops but for me it's one of the more useful productivity features, one that attracted me to Linux DEs before Windows had an equivalent feature.
