Bug Description

Kubuntu users feel more like just KDE users. KDE in (K)ubuntu lacks so much branding, that it's hard to identify with the OS. It'd be easier to identify with Kubuntu/Ubuntu if the menu button had the kubuntu logo.

Note that this is not universally agreed by the kubuntu developers. We already have a Kubuntu logo in the kickoff menu (which could be improved a lot) and we generally like shipping artwork and other settings in line with upstream.

Jonathan, if consensus is reached, will you please either mark this Invalid or Confirm it? Thank you.

I would also prefer KDE logo to Kubuntu logo, but I am the last one to decide it... (I agree with Jonathan and the KDE logo, in my opinion, fits better within other square shaped icons in the bar.)

Please add the kubuntu-menu.png icon also in lucid.
And in my opinion set it as default KDE Menu icon would be nice.

At the least, the icon will be included in the next kubuntu-default-settings release as a manual option: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~kubuntu-members/kubuntu-default-settings/ubuntu/revision/342

Can there be something like popularity contest to inform us how many people chose the Kubuntu icon compared to how many keep the original K-gear?

That's probably asking a lot, but I'm curious.

can this be closed as a won't fix? or maybe even fix released if it is available in the default settings? No need for it to hang around open if we have a solution.

We should IMHO define exactly how much branding is necessary and acceptable.

Aye, I thought branding was a part of the Project Timelord outline.

Btw, I love the new logo as a Kmenu button. Great job.
I'm happy to have this as a optional icon that comes with the initial install.
