GRUB-Installation failure?

Hi,

I am using Kubuntu 14.04 - 64 LTS with a Raid-Controler and Raid 5 and LVM.

Now I installed a new Samsung SSD and wanted install Kubuntu 18.04 - 64 LTS

The installation proceedes but there are big issues with the LVM-Management!

Nevertheless - I tried all kinds auf installations but it fails always,
after the installation, when - i suppose - the boot-record and Grub ist
written.

The bugtracker-Window ist not active so I cant put there any message!

To be shure that it is not my system - I tried the same with Ubuntu and
miracle there were no problems except the same LVM troubbles - but

Please remove Kubuntu i386 iso image builds for 18.10

I think the intent of the email here:

had this as an implicit request, but may have become held up in
moderation queue for being copied to ubuntu-devel

Regardless, I will now make the request directly and formally to this list.

On behalf of Kubuntu Council (and active developers) I request that i386
iso image builds are discontinued for 18.10.

Backports PPA policy for 18.04 LTS

Our default PPA policy for LTS releases states that [1]

"Monthly KDE software release backports are made available through the
Kubuntu PPA for as long as supported by the native LTS software stack
but no longer than 2 years."

For 16.04 LTS we allowed an upgrade of Qt in the backports PPA [2] from
5.5 to 5.6.x, however this was not altogether a radical decision as the
Qt 5.6 release was a LTS one, and already being built and maintained by
the Ubuntu phone/Qt team in their overlay PPA.

For 18.04 LTS, we are already on Qt 5.9 LTS, with more point releases to
come, hopefully as SRU updates to t

Kubuntu Automation 2.2 first beta released

Hi,

the first beta of Kubuntu Automation 2.2 is now available in the testing PPA:
<a href="https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ninjas/+archive/ubuntu/dev-tools-testing/" title="https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ninjas/+archive/ubuntu/dev-tools-testing/">https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ninjas/+archive/ubuntu/dev-tools-testing/</a>

The most important change compaed with the previous 2.2 alphas is the debian
merging script rework; that doesn't mean we are ready to merge from debian
right now, but we will be very soon. The merging script still has a couple of
glitches which I would like to solve in next releases, but it's already good
enough to be tested and try to find unknown issues with it,

Cheers.

to be done. you know how in ubuntu gnome (of which is now the standard
ubuntu desktop), you've got dots/dashes over an active icon, say you've
got firefox open and above it's icon there's a dot to show there's an
open window for it. and any subsequent windows for it, it displays more
dots above that icon. is there a way to have that feature in kubuntu?

Kubuntu 18.04 ISO live USB: BIOS does not "see" it, laptop does not boot it.

Hello everybody.

At present, I am working at a correctly functioning Lenovo X220 running at
Kubuntu 18.04 LTS amd 64. The laptop has now one SSD of 128 GB at which the
system is running. There is also a HD of 320 GB. Soon, I will replace that
HD and buy this SSD:
KingSpec P3-1TB 2.5 inch SATA SSD

When I will acquire this one, I'll need a bootable usb stick with Kubuntu
18.04. Have tried several times to create it at a "Sandisk Ultra USB 3.0"
with a view to running from there a "live" system, in order to test it.
Have been using mkusb-dus OR startup-disk-creator to put the ISO at the
stick.

However, I do not manage to even START Aptik - not via the K-Menu, also not
via ALT-F2, even not from the command line.

bug reports are still really valuable.

Thanks again,

PS: the sooner we finish our testing and report the images ready, the
sooner the 18.04 release can happen tomorrow. So test, test, test!

Last Bionic Final testing -- we hope!

Hi folks, new ISOs are again available. Zsync really saves time if you

that you are testing on hardware, what sort, or only in VMs.

Thanks!

Wow, you testers overwhelm with awesomeness!

I just looked at the qatracker, and we have done ALL our RC tests and

If so, we may need some more testing, but for now, we are sitting pretty!

Bionic Release Candidate milestone approaching

Hi folks, we had such a good Beta 2 testing, I'm hoping for testing
awesomeness for the RC. The schedule says

* April 19th: FinalFreeze,  ReleaseCandidate,  LanguagePackTranslationDeadline

* April 26th: FinalRelease,  Ubuntu 18.04

We'll see the images (as usual) at
<a href="http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/384" title="http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/384">http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/384</a>

Naturally, testing the daily ISOs is always welcome, as long as bug
reports are reported as you progress. `ubuntu-bug packagename` is your
friend.

As usual we especially need i386 testing on i386 machines. So get ready!

Problems with screen management

I've been running Kubuntu/xfce on 3 Amd64 machines and have run into
serious problems with screen management in editors.  Moving the cursor
into the screen display will often cause the data on that display to
move around on its own or to become corrupted.

I have seen this in the THE editor, as well as nano and vi.   It makes
the editors unusable because once data moves around, you cannot treat
the data as being correct.

This is while running Kubuntu Beta 2 on an AMD64 machine.   Will try to
test it on an i386 machine as well.

A very serious problem for me.

xrandr question

Running Kubuntu 16.04 here.

I'm told that if you want xrandr to do a particular resolution
on boot up, you have to put the command in a file named,
".xprofile". That's nice as far as it goes, but where do I put
the file? Does it need any special treatment like:

chmod a+rwx ~/.xprofile

or whatever?

Hi folks,

We had a lot of help testing Beta 2 candidates, thank you so much! It
was Hell week for me and the extra testing -- especially the i386
testing helped sooo much.

Our next testing push will be the Release Candidate scheduled for 19
April, so put that on your testing calendar. Of course, testing of the
dailies is always useful as well.

KDE Plasma is working fine on Manjaro, but not on Kubuntu 18.04 Beta2

Hi,

I've been trying to move to KDE for a long time, but the only Plasma
release for me that worked on Kubuntu was with Kubuntu 15.10. And after
that, none of the releases are working on my hardware. So, what happens is,
if I use Plasma and KWin (OpenGL 2, OpenGL 3, or Xrendr), I get this weird
flickering when resizing application windows. It's easily observable if I
open up a Dolphin window and start to resize it by the corner rapidly in
every direction. At times, there will be a white patch covering the entire
window for a few milliseconds (or so).

amd64 Beta 2 candidate testing going well; i386 testing -- none?

I didn't write to the list yesterday about the candidate ISOs
dropping, because of computer problems here. I lost a SSD (I think)
but created a Bionic upgrade on another disk. So that was a success,
but it takes time to provision a new install, as you know.

Anyway, i386 users, now or never! I mean literally if we don't get
testing on this LTS on i386 hardware, we will NOT be offering it from

Kubuntu 18.04: Screen contents flicker on resize

I was trying out the Beta build of Kubuntu 18.04 LTS and I faced the same
issue I faced earlier with 17.10. When resizing any window, there are times
when it will flicker. It's random, and switching compositing backend to
openGL 3 didn't help either.
Using Xrender helped in removing the flicker, but then everything started
to tear. Even when I forced full screen repaints, the tearing wouldn't stop.

I don't know if it's a Xorg issue or something with KDE.

for details.

Remember: we need people to test on so-called bare metal - real
computers rather than VMs - if possible. This is crucial for the i386
images. The Xenial dot release situation was terrible for i386 with
none of the people begging us to do the work to release for this
platform actually stepping up to test.

Remember to login to the qatracker and *report your bugs* and link the

18.04 i386 testing

Just did an install of 18.04  i386 and it went very well.  The only
glitch I have seen so far:

I usually do a manual config of disk partitions.  So I selected home,
root, and boot partitions and all of that went well with one exception. 
I first decided not to format the /home partition and didn't flag it to
format in the manual partition selection.  But when I came out of that,
I clicked on the 'format' box for /home and the installer crashed.

Not a biggie in my view because I RARELY get through an install without
at least one installer crash...  I think that is a big weakpoint of

Kubuntu Automation 2.1 released

Hi,

Kubuntu Automation 2.1 was released. This new version provides new features,
bug fixes and some code refactoring. Feel free to inspect the changelog to see
the technical details.

"official" one.

* Drop Adobe Flash as it will be EOL before end of next LTS

I believe we did have some discussion of this at the time, and either
said leave it, or did not make a firm decision.

I think it is appropriate to re-visit this discussion before be go to beta.

Unable to open files in LibreOffice

Ever since yesterday's Plasma updates, I am unable to open any documents in
LibreOffice; it seems to run fine until I try to open a document in any LO
program (Writer, Calc, etc.).

Looking forward to Bionic Beta 1

Hi folks, for various reasons there was no Alpha 1 or 2 this cycle, but now
we're on the march to Beta 1, which will be on March 8 [1].

Now is the time to get your VMs ready, or dust off that old 32 bit machine
in preparation. Rik has got Plasma 5.12.2 uploaded to the Archive, so this
is gonna be exciting! (New plasma is available for Artful users too:
<a href="https://kubuntu.org/news/plasma-5-12-2-bugfix-updates-available/" title="https://kubuntu.org/news/plasma-5-12-2-bugfix-updates-available/">https://kubuntu.org/news/plasma-5-12-2-bugfix-updates-available/</a>)

Remember: we cannot release this LTS for i386 if we don't get testers. And
we need some of that testing to be on actual 32-bit machines.

Kubuntu Dev Meeting

Hello all!

We're very close to the Kubuntu 18.04 LTS release and I would like for us
to go though the Phab board [1] to see what needs doing to polish our next
LTS release.

(solved) KDE root programs' fonts very small

Hi!

I've had the problem, that graphical programs (or program parts), which run as root, had a very small font size - such as systemsettings5 or muon's settings->configure software sources window.

I've investigated it, and I found that the following has to be added to /etc/environment:

XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=KDE

That is, the XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP environment variable needs to be set to "KDE". But this doesn't work when set in ~/.bashrc, ~/.proile or /etc/profile. Looks like these scripts aren't called by kdesudo.
