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.

As I mentioned in T10568 we need IMHO better discoverability not yet another global shortcut.

Given that it is a task relevant only to Kubuntu, I suggest to un-tag KWin to keep downstream things out of our workboard.

The action to toggle window borders is already implemented. It's called "Hide Window Border". However, no default shortcut is assigned to it.

Nevertheless you have IMHO a valid point: hard discoverability. The global shortcut
settings page could be enhanced. Enhancing this would not only help others finding
you personal favourite feature(s) but all others too.

Adding 'User Feedback' what global shortcuts people really set, could help in
future decision what action is probably a candidate for a global shortcut.

stay healthy, Achim

  1. Screen Real Estate optimization.
    • it saves vertical space especially on maximized windows that you are isolating anyway because its maximized
    • it makes the quick tiling functions better because it allows for windows to use the space more effieciently.
  2. Its a nice feature for gamers because Fullscreen Gaming can sometimes be an issue for some games especially via Proton layers.
    • Removing the border allows you to put a game in Windowed Mode and then maximize it for a Faux-Fullscreen experience so it performs as if it was in Windowed Mode but looks like fullscreen.

What's the use case for toggling the window decorations of the active window?

michaeltunnell added a comment to T13038: Implement a Default Shortcut for "No Border" function in KWin.

The function should be called "Hide/Show Window Borders" but it's called "No Borders" which is fairly awkward.

darinmiller added a comment to T13038: Implement a Default Shortcut for "No Border" function in KWin.

Ironically, if shortcuts are filtered for "hide" or "border", Hide Window border is the only option. I don't use meta+b so we use both meta+B and meta+H as primary and secondary.

Here is my follow up to why this should be done since this was denied for a silly reason (typical for KDE in my experience) [reason: 'what could be done' somewhere else]

I use meta+H to "hide" the borders.

wxl added a comment to T7566: Ship Discover with Snap and Flatpak backends installed, and Flathub pre-configured as a source.

I think having all of the backends turned on would make sense. Choice is a good thing to have. Without that, it would be something analogous to having Okular without anything besides PDF support.

eszlari added a comment to T7566: Ship Discover with Snap and Flatpak backends installed, and Flathub pre-configured as a source.

They wouldn't even need to enable the Flathub repo like Neon did. Just having the backend installed by default would improve the out of box experience enormously. (You could then just go to flathub.org and click-to-install, no restart needed)

The effect is this, a small modification is enough. It has a higher contrast and to me personally it looks more elegant / beautiful.
What do you think?

Thanks for taking the time to answer me.
In fact, the change isn't worth the extra maintenance, because it's a slight improvement.
Maybe the change could be made upstream on breeze-dark?

BTW Neon is shipping with the Snap and Flatpak backends (+Flathub) installed by default and it's worked out very well for them. Kubuntu might want to consider doing the same thing.
