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.

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.

I edited the original comment to add Super+Tab and Super+Shift+Tab option for desktop switching because Activities are rather pointless to be taking of space for such a valuable shortcut.

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.

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

I just wanted to mention this still works fine for me and resolves numerous icon scaling issues.

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

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 also have concerns that the smaller monochrome icon is not as clear as to what its purpose is to someone looking at the panel for the 1st time.

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.

This doesn't happen on Wayland.

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

I'll have to look at how much actual size it might add. We are very close to OVERSIZE for the 2GB limit, which gets me complaining emails now if we exceed it, and a warning on our image download page. I recently had to take libreoffice-base off the iso to creep under the limit again.
