    Phoronix: Here's Your Chance To Improve The KDE Plasma 5 Wallpaper

    When recently covering how Kubuntu 15.04 is turning out quite well and a nice way to enjoy the latest KDE Plasma 5 experience, several Phoronix readers had commented about the "ugly" wallpaper. Well, now here's your chance to improve the situation...

    Is that really a wallpaper? I thought someone had vomited on the screen.

      I really wish we'd get more artistic people instead of trolls to post in threads that are about art

        Honestly... you people... while I personally would never use that wallpaper (or for that matter any default wallpaper, I have my own set of pictures I like to use) it doesn't look horrible, or even bad really. It's not particularly nice either, but ffs it's a wallpaper, the easiest thing to change in a desktop and almost no distro uses the default ones, do you really feel it's worth your time to bring vitriol about it?

          it still beats the wallpaper opensuse 13.2 ships with. i mean, i understand design and stuff but in that particular case - what were they thinking?

            With these types of articles lately, you should consider a "Wallpapers" article category, Michael

              Have you seen the default ubuntu wallpapers?
              They look as if you closed your eyes turned your face to the sun and pressed your fingers into your eyeballs.

                Oh yes, please fix that. Once that is done, find out what is introducing the extra whitespace above and below text in widgets. I am pretty sure that is a bug since it also happen in the Oxygen style that should look like KDE4.

                  Having used Mint KDE for a while I can say that Mint KDE is bad, probably because is done in 2 weeks by 2 guys.

                  how many dependancys to install Okular(KDE5) on non KDE distros? Right know for install it on debian 7 (KDE4) ( 96 ). The modularization is for less dependancys or for more? (And Gnome related libs are modular since always )

                  The wallpaper looks cool, but KDE looks more uglyiest than ever. :=) , Besides that I don't see any improvement more than a flat theme....

                    Well "KDE Plasma 5 wallpaper" but it looks pretty aligned to Ubuntu Wallpapers guidelines. But what about the war between KDE devs against Ubuntu?(seigo/graslin) Why are they using a Ubuntu style wallpaper... it very confusing...
