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.

Reasoned criticism is necessary -- and this fellow can help us make the LTS great.

  • Maybe aim for Calamares installer after 18.04, and in the meantime overhaul the KDE/Qt fromt end for ubiquity.
  • For 18.04, possible port of update notifier/manager to Qt5 - distribution upgrades needed most of all. (Neon will also want an upgrade mechanism -> 18.04, so maybe another arm of collaboration).
  • Redesign and better looking driver manager front end - Something else neon have started looking at with ken fro KDE VDG.

Now we have the Cafe Live up and running, we need to introduce a developer feedback section. I have provided a slide for this is Show Presentation.
All that is required to organise getting the developer updates ahead of the show.

blaze added a comment to T7452: Add kwalletcli to kubuntu-packaging.

pinentry-kwallet is not a replacement for pinentry-qt or pinentry-gtk binaries (that's what I was thinking). It just kind of works on top of them. Too bad this fact is not documented anywhere.

I realized that there's no need for these changes. Actually they can even break something. Also the project is not a part of KDE Apps https://www.mirbsd.org/kwalletcli.htm
Sorry for the noise

i think if you don't have enough manpower or willingness to maintain and test 32-bit then you should drop it no matter what other distributions do.

can someone please explain why you need a separate audio player? VLC can play virtually any audio and it does the job well. i think VLC makes a perfect default player for both video and audio. no, it can't satisfy everybody and no player can, but Kubuntu users have so many options which can cater to their particular needs.

humanbeing added a comment to T6419: i386 / 32-bit.

so, you've decided to continue with 32-bit versions. therefore you should check the first box in the description and close the task. or do you want to return to this question for Bionic?

IIRC Valorie got testers on real HW for one of the Alphas or Betas. I know I tested three scenarios in VMs (Live, Full Disk, Full Disk with Encrypted LVM) for pretty much every alpha and beta and at least one, probably two, maybe all the final release candidates.

+1 from me, although I always install flash and then block by default. :-)

mparillo added a comment to T7394: Notifications helper - don't bug users to install flash for Firefox in 2017!.

If it is only one line of code, I vote for removing it. I have been getting that nag for years, and I have never installed flash on Kubuntu. Back when a lot of sites needed flash, I trusted that Chrome could handle it, and if there was some important content hidden behind flash, and I trusted the provider, then I copied the link and opened it in Chrome.
