Maybe we should just do it while we wait for a more universal solution.

Unbreak Now! (4)
Needs Triage (7)
Is there any other way to make this work? Or hope that upstream will fix it?
Yeah I guess it should have something similar to the original where this was inspired by so-and-so and we modified it and so it should have a Lubuntu copyright. I wonder who Dino Duratović is and where the original came from.
Are you suggesting we drop this?
- A nice improvement would be a way to better keep Phab and the archive synced. At the very least, a notification system.
- A really nice improvement would be a notification system about failed merges.
BTW ka-sync-archive is here.
T42 was broken again due to security issues outlined in T147 (internal access only to Infra and Council)
Although it would be better to have the colorful icons, the e-papirus make them look in the menu. And it might be hard to maintain the .desktop in the different languages, if only we could "touch" some lines and not the whole .desktop.
- …is this just a copy of the original?
99% is, except the close.xbm and in themerc the lines:
A debdiff between previous and next ubuntu versions is also pretty helpful. Can be used once you build with merge-scripts. Just used that with D73.
it's less than easy to get the Phabricator repos updated to match the archive if you upload before landing
I wouldn't recommend installation of nvidia by default, I believe it can bring us more problems than benefits.
I'm dealing with nvidia, still is a pain, manually had to blacklist nouveau and fonts appear very small apparently because of dpi miss lecture and and when xorg.conf is created back screen appear https://askubuntu.com/questions/1189311/ubuntu-19-10-nvidia-xconfig-makes-screen-black
mmmm, maybe we should revert this, there is a bug when exporting to pdf using embeded fonts see https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125234
@hmollercl update from the various upstreams? I think at the very least we can implement the changes to LXQt applications for everyone.
Well maybe I'm backpedalling on all of that:
- It seems that the main menu background was somehow based off of the text palette rather than being hardcoded, which, I'm thinking, might make it more dynamic.
It sounds good in theory but in practice I haven't been able to make it work well because of our strange combination dark/light. palette(text) gives the light backgroundhttps://phab.lubuntu.me/file/data/ttrldxvuelxtrwlrkxqd/PHID-FILE-rewnjzd6z5bnokqc2cbs/image.png , palette gives black https://phab.lubuntu.me/file/data/f7xfnxptzrtpbccbv6aa/PHID-FILE-t3uhfy727jqnveam45z7/image.png . If same result https://phab.lubuntu.me/file/data/5ca5lmzalxicymra5icf/PHID-FILE-p6c4vzko4e7mmmoivcxp/image.png could be achieve with palette I would prefer palette, but I'm not having been able to do it. I'm no expert on colors so if there are better options I'm willing to use them.
- The main menu selected item goes from being an rgb (decimal) value to being an html (hexidecimal) one. I'm sure as far as the end result is concerned, this doesn't ultimately matter, but perhaps consistency might not be wise?
I used the same consistency of the original file https://phab.lubuntu.me/source/lubuntu-artwork/browse/ubuntu%252Ffocal/src/usr/share/lxqt/themes/Lubuntu%20Arc/lxqt-panel.qss in which alll backgrounds are rgb. We can change all of them, but I don't know if that has been done for a reason or not.
- The commented lines which should be removed, unless we're trying to expose some options to allow people to change, in which case, they should be documented.
In xbm lines starting with # are definitions, not comments https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_BitMap
- It should have a Lubuntu copyright.
You mean change this?

As I said before, I trust you fully as far as theming is concerned. So I'm not too worried about the aesthetics of the theme.
