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.

It works! Seemingly no regressions. :-)

Awesome. Since we're in a cherry-picking mood, let me pre-warn you that if we get good results during the 5.14 beta, I'd like should consider cherry-picking https://cgit.kde.org/plasma-desktop.git/commit/?id=a4c724173b5c6a59331587f2e5db746dffbabdc6 too, or else we're going to get a lot of user anger over it.

Should build and reach release pocket in a few hrs, as p-d has no tests.

I was already considering this patch, after I noticed it had been merged into the 5.13 branch but would not get released in 5.13 as there are no more bugfix releases.

If we leave it for 19.04, hopefully things will Just Work™ since Global Menu support was still a tech demo in Plasma 5.13.

We are in feature freeze and approaching beta freeze, so this needs looked at soon or left for next release.

Is it too late to turn these on for 18.10? It would require some testing, I presume.

At the moment it's just a proposal/idea. I'll be testing this out on Cosmic once I get a test rig set up. Then I can provide a definitive package list. Of course, folks already using Cosmic can feel free to try following the above instructions , and then see if the global menu works if they add a Global Menu plasmoid somewhere.

@valorie Neon does not have apport. They say apport is undesirable. Do you have any idea why?

You also tend to formulate your words in an accusatory and inflammatory way that puts people on the defensive.

I intend no harm. Lower your shields :)

Then please stop accusing.

Another actionable path: purge all of Ubuntu's crash handlers from the iso. If users want them, they can apt install them. KDE strives for privacy software. Shouldn't Kubuntu as well?

As the release manager, I will not agree to this. Flawed apport might be, but it is *not* snoopware. In fact, I very much wish that Dr. Konqui would be expanded to allow kde-bug packagename as apport facilitates via ubuntu-bug packagename. This is entirely under the control of the user and make quality bug reporting easy.

Filing issues like this on phab without otherwise interacting with the Kubuntu team is counter-productive. We very much want increased interaction with our upstream KDE, which is why we have our Phab instance here. At least assign the issue to someone so that we can dialog. Just filing an issue without any interaction is like shouting into an empty room. Frustrating and exhausting for no purpose.

I just wanted to mention here that I recently installed Manjaro on a laptop, and they included TLP by default. Out of the box I was getting battery usage on-par with Windows, very impressive. No USB/Bluetooth or other issues so far seen.

valorie added a comment to T8381: Let's improve the look 'n feel of the installer and use more meaningful visuals and wording.

I have translated the Neon slideshow so I'm pretty sure the text is not incorporated into images. Anyway, making the text translatable is a necessity IMO. Non-English users will not be impressed by a partially translated installer.

Oh! Okay. I stand corrected. It is astonishing how elegant a slideshow can be with just a few well-chosen images and just a bit of text. The installer should probably not be a user manual.

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