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.

Sounds great! Basically just test the betas. And here's a link to the QA testcases ones for Disco: http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/403/builds/191460/testcases

I can only assume nobody has applied for this because they didn't know where to look?? I am a full-time Kubuntu user with a 20 year background in IT (systems administration, help desk, product management) and am trying to figure out how to get involved. I think QA testing, release review, documentation review or something of the like would make sense for me. I'm not sure what your needs are but I'm happy to discuss. Thank you.

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

I've noticed on KDE Neon, which I assume to be vanilla KDE, this is also true. I can't think of a reason to not have at least two desktops configured as default but I guess there is one? I'd like to second the suggestion for configuring at least two if not four desktops by default. I personally don't want them stacked vertically as I prefer a 2x2 grid but I would be fine with changing it if the default was something else. The rest of Michael's suggestion make sense but just adding the desktops is a good first step.

The sharing tab in dolphin install samba and samba-common on demand. I just checked.

Ping. Just found that samba-common is automatically installed if you install samba, so given that samba is pre-installed, samba-common really should be too.

this is great! I would add a large version of the dingo in the background blended with the dark red/purple colors to give it an extra depth effect but this looks quite good as is.

Since there isn't a new wallpaper for 5.15 I'm thinking of going basic with the design. Still missing the Kubuntu logo but I'll add that in a bit.

This is a bit off topic but can you tell me guys, why touchpad experience on linux is so choppy. I mean there is no multi pinch zoom. No momentum/inertial/kinetic scrolling. It just scrolls in discreet steps. I read a lot on online forums and people pointed out that it has to do with libinput driver which has replaced synaptics(because the moderators have abandoned it). I tried installing synaptics but it was the same. Any reference/pointer where I can tweak this. I am on Asus Zenbook UX330 and the touchpad is so pleasing to use on Windows.

You should use the Kubuntu backports PPA to upgrade to Plasma 5.15 and see if that fixes the issue. https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ppa/+archive/ubuntu/backports

If it's still broken in Plasma 5.15, then you should file a bug. :) https://bugs.kde.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=plasmashell

Please make sure to explicitly state that you are using PLASMA_USE_QT_SCALING=1 for the purpose of finding bugs with that setting.

2x as in Scaling factor in System Settings or setting PLASMA_USE_QT_SCALING=2?

Yeah. We do get user complaints about the ugly icon though. It's nicer-looking in a newer Frameworks release, but it's still odd to have one color icon in a panel with otherwise nothing but monochrome icons.

rikmills added a comment to T10576: Reduce default panel height by a tiny bit.

I considered such a change, but rejected it as it also messes up the scaling of our Kickoff menu icon in an unacceptable way. I did it in a different way though, so will have another play to see if it goes better this way, but I fear 30 for a panel height may be pushing it too small.

I would argue not all done. As per https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lmdb/+bug/1812122 the uploads for Bionic and Cosmic are still only in the proposed pocket, and require testing/verification (confirmed on the bug) to allow the fixed packages to reach the updates pocket where they ship to normal users.

Other than that, I've been using it for months now and seems to work fine.
