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.

+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.

  1. 4 seems a lot, and stacking 4 vertically in the pager makes them too tiny. 2 stacked vertically does look just about ok.
  2. Well, if we should have more than one VD by default, then the pager has a desirable use. If we are not, then it just does not show, but appears should a user add some. So either way, I can't see a case for removing it.

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

Also, @michaeltunnell suggests using Meta + D but I see that in Plasma 5.16 they are assigning that as the default for Show Desktop. Not sure that matters but figured I'd mention it.

Well that is certainly annoying because it took them so long to do something that has been in Windows for over a decade but alright. Meta+Alt+D then 😃

If you saw the kind of pushback I sometimes get when I submit patches for things like this, you'd be happy they wind up getting done at all rather than annoyed that they took so long. :)

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.

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.

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.

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.
