So crazy scripted the installs and had failures both ways but had less failures with the script. It seems more appropriate to do things that way, anyways. Someone want to drum that up?

Since we have a solution that works well for almost everything, I say we keep it. We can include the workaround in release notes for the PDF export issue (we should make a bug for it and link it to the upstream bug). Once we have that in place (maybe we should start working on release notes now?), let's close this.

Although I find it really circumstantial and fails to explain why we suddenly had this problem nor why renaming os-prober seems to work around the issue, upstream sees the problem to be the way we're calling things. Apparently just running sudo calamares "solves" the problem and while I'm skeptical of that, it does seem to work. Subsequently, upstream has changed the docs to reflect this fact.

@kc2bed sadly, no. While I agree that D82 works as intended to automatically use nm-connection-editor as opposed to nmtui-edit and while I see that as a vast improvement, it's still not the Qt-based solution we want. We probably should drop this from 20.04, though.

@hmollercl Of course I don't want it, but it's the best we got. I had supported the change here but only decided against it because I didn't feel it was fair to non-Lubuntu users. For some reason we didn't thing it was XDG-respecting, but it turns out it is. I think my last comment should explain why.

wxl added a comment to rNMTRAYPACKAGING1bc4f5406954: Changed connection editor to nm-connection-editor.

@hmollercl not to dig up the past but I think I was a little too rash to shoot this down. Looking at this post on Discourse got me thinking on the subject and I realize we can instead implement this change in rDEFAULTSETTINGS by using $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS, specifically dropping our own nm-tray.conf in /etc/xdg/xdg-Lubuntu/nm-tray. I just tested this in 19.10 and it works fine and overrides the default in /usr/share/nm-tray. Interestingly, though [/usr/share traditionally is in $XDG_DATA_DIRS](https://specifications.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html) (and it is for us), we also have it in $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS so it works. nm-tray uses QSettings to manage configuration and [it uses $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS](https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qsettings.html#locations-where-application-settings-are-stored) so this makes sense. So want to fix this once and for all in Focal?

wxl added a comment to T128: Alt-Tab and Alt-Shift-Tab feature request (openbox conf).

Sorry for the long delay. I can indeed confirm that the clientActions in lxqt-panel do little more than desktop switching or task switching to a particular task number. I can also confirm that it will likely be problematic even if it was supported based on the bug you mention. I *do* think this is worth mentioning as something to improve. On the other hand, another part of me thinks they'll probably say this is a job for the window manager. And indeed, this is a bit of a window manager-specific task.
