mmikowskiRikMills Eickmeyer: Been testing the 5.27 experimental. It looks great so far.01:24
mmikowskiahoneybun[m] ^^ What needs testing for 22.04.2?01:24
ahoneybun[m]Looks like this: http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/442/builds/272152/testcases01:32
ahoneybun[m]mmikowski: ∆01:32
mmikowskiHey ahoneybun[m], thanks!02:54
mmikowskifwiw, 5.27 is looking amazing.02:55
mmikowskiahoneybun[m]: We'll pick a few and submit results tomorrow.02:59
BluesKajHi all13:41
ahoneybun[m]Heyo BluesKaj16:15
ahoneybun[m]Looks like 22.04.2 is out so I needed to update the website.16:23
=== Eickmeyer is now known as NoLongerEickmeye
=== NoLongerEickmeye is now known as NotEickmeyer
mmikowskiahoneybun[m] We still plan to load a disk today and will report back.19:43
ahoneybun[m]22.04.2 testing?20:18
mmikowskiWe haven't gotten around to a load today, but we do plan to.21:55
mmikowskiIt fits right in with our plasma 5.27 hardware testing.21:56
mmikowskiBut right now the tester is finishing up with VM testing.21:56
mmikowskiahoneybun[m] ^^ Yes, 22.04 testing. I know it's released, but we can still run at least one test plan.21:57
ahoneybun[m]That's good either way. 22:20
ahoneybun[m]I'm kinda wondering if you folks do anything upstream from us?22:20
mmikowskiahoneybun[m]: we do :)22:21
ahoneybun[m]I've been wanting to have meetings with the KC to see where we're going Kubuntu wise and such. Build out a roadmap.22:22
mmikowskilots of testing of course. We sent reports to Rik and Nate Graham for KDE testing.22:22
ahoneybun[m]Also about the Kubuntu Manual and if KFocus uses it at all.22:22
mmikowskiThen we have upstreamed quite a few changes, especially concerning first-touch experiences.22:22
tsimonq2A good suggestion would be to make it an opt-out desktop icon, as we've done in Lubuntu22:22
ahoneybun[m]Desktop icon?22:23
mmikowskiahoneybun[m] Please include me if that works. We definitely have some ideas.22:23
tsimonq2ahoneybun[m]: For the manual22:24
mmikowskitsimonq2 Good to see you. Say, we have been testing the experimental build of 5.27 in Kubuntu, and I didn't want to say anything until I got a feel for how it looks...22:24
mmikowskiBut it looks really good so far (VM testing only, at this point).22:24
mmikowskiSo today we wanted to load up on hardware and check that out.22:24
ahoneybun[m]tsimonq2: It's not a package in Kubuntu, I never got that far...22:25
mmikowskiSo ahoneybun[m] and tsimonq2 and RikMills if testing goes well, do you think the 5.27 build might be a good candidate for backports?22:25
tsimonq2ahoneybun[m]: It isn't a package in Lubuntu either ;)22:26
tsimonq2mmikowski: Possibly, I don't have an objection right now :)22:26
ahoneybun[m]tsimonq2: Just an browser shortcut? It's not on line as a website22:27
mmikowski+cc arraybolt3: 5.27 appears to fix many of the bugs we had against 5.24, has great new features (people love the tiling), and looks more stable.22:27
ahoneybun[m]Just a ePub and PDF for offline22:27
mmikowskiEven as built currently against a slightly older QT.22:27
mmikowskiSo I could send out a desktop check report which should provide additional value. The tests are pretty comprehensive, so it should definitely provide a level of assurance.22:29
mmikowskiahoneybun[m]: re upstreaming, other examples include Kubuntu decrypt screen, kernel patch for Intel frame buffer flickering, etc. We expect to remain actively involved with KDE and Kubuntu of course, and offer all our software for upstreaming via kfocus-source.22:30
mmikowskiThat said, it's new-hardware season, so we are quite focused on that currently.22:31
ahoneybun[m]Decrypt screen? Interesting 22:31
ahoneybun[m]Are sales good over at KFocus?22:32
mmikowskiahoneybun[m]: Yes, the decrypt screen was not responsive, so if you used it on 4k monitors it would move off screen.22:32
mmikowskiThen the SDDM profile would have screens overlap causing an annoying inset effect. We created a work-around for that and upstreamed it as well.22:33
mmikowskiThere are quite a few others, but yeah, we're involved.22:33
mmikowskiSales have been good, thank you :)22:34
mmikowskiSome big names recently, lots of scientists.22:34
arraybolt3And I can vouch for the fact that the machines are awesome :D22:35
mmikowskiThanks Aaron :)22:35
ahoneybun[m]Clevo/Intel makes good hardware 22:35
mmikowskifwi, the kernel will be switching to 5.19-generic-hwe as early as this weekend.  It's in final testing and looks good.22:35
ahoneybun[m]I want to put Kubuntu back on my HP if it wasn't for that GRUB bug22:37
mmikowskiIntel NUCs are incredible.22:38
mmikowskiClevo chassis that have matured can be quite good, and their quality has improved substantially recently for new chassis.  They definitely have excellent features and connectivity.22:40
ahoneybun[m]I've thought about working on some of your projects personally. I have one idea that is good for support about using chroot from a live disk to fix an OS install. 22:51
ahoneybun[m]It's on my GitHub in a kinda working state.22:51
mmikowskiThanks ahoneybun[m]. Sorry, I was AFKB for a bit. 23:01
mmikowskiWe do have detailed docs for that: https://kfocus.org/wf/recovery#bkm_use_chroot_to23:02
mmikowskiBut that's as automated as it gets right now :]23:03
mmikowskiWe do have an interesting QT project that's underway too. You can see that also in GitHub under kfocus-source.23:07
mmikowskiahoneybun[m]: The QT project is a unified power + fan selector. Nicco did that for us and a bug bounty, but it needs to be finalized. If you are interested in QT coding and want to tackle it, let me know. We haven't packaged it for public development IIRC, but we have all the specs and sketches and could do so in short order.23:43
mmikowskiIt is an interesting project, and probably something that could be finished in perhaps 2 weekends by a developer.23:44
mmikowskikk, gotta sign off now. Thanks for catching up!  Will report on ISO install today, as we will be walking through the OEM scenario presently.23:45
