KubuntuKarmicNetbook - Ubuntu Wiki

* KubuntuKarmicNetbook You are here: Kubuntu Wiki » KubuntuKarmicNetbook * Launchpad Entry: kubuntu-karmic-netbook-edition * Created: June 1, 2009 * Contributors: ScottK, Tonio, other Kubuntu devs * Packages affected: kubuntu-default-settings, possibly a new plasma-netbook-shell package Summary Provide, as a technology preview for Karmic, a new minor *buntu flavor, Kubuntu Netbook Edition. KDE4 is designed from the ground up to be scalable to many form factors. Many Kubuntu users are already using it in netbook computers. The intent is to make it easy for Kubuntu to just work. Release Note This release includes a new member of the Ubuntu family, Kubuntu Netbook Edition. This variant of Kubuntu is aimed at netbooks and other small form factor devices. Rationale Netbooks appear to be growing in popularity. An install image optimized for this form factor would be great for users and may have some commercial potential. KDE 4 is designed to be scalable and is easily adjusted to new form factors. It may be particularly useful to have in the *buntu stable in cases where a quick turn around for a particular device type is needed. User stories Jane has used Kubuntu for years and wants it on her new netbook. She is pleased to find Kubuntu Netbook Edition gives her a familiar environment scaled to her new device. Klaus has a new netbook device coming to market with an exciting new form factor. He needs an OS for it, but needs it soon. With a little help, he's able to ship on time and on budget with Kubuntu Netbook Edition. Assumptions None. The settings changes have been prototyped and the plasma-netbook shell will only be included if it is mature. Design Test various settings such and font and panel sizes in the netbook form factor to determine good settings for smaller systems. Test and integrate plasma-netbook shell if ready. Implementation Implementation will have three major parts Settings Changes A new Kubuntu default settings netbook package will be needed along with a netbook metapackage for this edition (in Universe for Karmic) New Flavour Setup A kubuntu netbook seed will need to be created. Image builds for i386 will be needed. Plasma Netbook Shell If it is ready, the plasma Netbook shell will be packaged and used as the default front end for Kubuntu Netbook Edition. It is currenlty in heavy development and likely to be ready for Karmic. * * * Some patching of kdelibs/base/plasma-addons is needed (and doable before feature freeze) to support Plamsa Netbook in KDE 4.3. Test/Demo Plan Images will need to be thoughly tested before release. We will encourage people to test these on netbook and full form hardware. Unresolved issues Inclusion of Plasma Netbook shell TBD pending testing.

Tutorials: TBD REVU: TBD {*} Join us in the #kubuntu chat room for support, the #kubuntu-devel chat room for general development or #kubuntu-netbook for Kubuntu Netbook Edition development. {*} Netbooks are different than larger computers and Plasma Netbook is meant to provide a different way to interact with them. This is a new project for KDE that is planned for release with KDE 4.4 in February 2010. KDE and Kubuntu developers are working together to integrate this exciting new concept into Kubuntu's KDE 4.3 for our Karmic Koala (9.10) release. Plasma netbook is the heart of the new Kubuntu Netbook Edition. Rather than repeat what various upstream developers have had to say about it. Here are some links: * Description with YouTube videos * Ars Technical article * Aaron Seigo's Plasma Netbook manifesto * Technical paper * Associated presentation slides This is not just about making Kubuntu smaller, but delivering a novel netbook experience that will be better. Currently Plasma Netbook has some rough edges. It is still under heavy development upstream and will get better. Upstream is interested in feedback. We are aware of a number of issues already, but want to hear more so we can deliver the best netbook experience. Please file bugs.
