Mataro Sessions II: the breakouts

Notes from breakout on Homerun:

  • Needs to move to Extragear
  • no upstream designer in Plasma so hard to change fundementals like app menu
  • KWin would be against it as default, uses full screen blur, no visual consistency between it and dashboard
  • Does not show app generic names
  • netrunner says full screen is distracting for a menu
  • no filters
  • no recent apps

Notes from breakout on High DPI sceens:

Kubuntu Developer Summit @ Akademy

Since there's no UDS we have a room booked at Akademy to spend the day discussing things in Kubuntu

if you're coming put yourself on https://notes.kde.org/p/kubuntu-akademy

Would be good to have as many Kubuntu people there as possible.
The Kubuntu Council has funds if you need sponsorship for travel, don't be afraid to ask.

Mataro Sessions II

The Ubuntu Developer Summit should have been this week but got cancelled in order to increase transparency. But you wouldn't want to let an expensive hotel booking go to waste so there seems to have been a meeting of Canonical engineers this week anyway just without the community. Twitter says some grumpy things.
