Bug #1781417 reported by Sebastien Bacher on 2018-07-12
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-initial-setup (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

* Impact

Unity users don't get the welcome wizard after upgrading to bionic

* Test case

- install 16.04
- upgrade to 18.04
- select unity in the session selector before first login

-> the wizard should be displayed but without the "what's new in ubuntu" page which describes GNOME

* Regression potential

Check that the wizard still work correctly under GNOME/Ubuntu sessions

Hello seb! Thanks for the SRU. I was just wondering if it actually makes sense to get this SRUed. I mean, it probably is a bug that the welcome wizard is not displayed, but does it actually cause any inconveniences? What critical bits do the users miss out on when not seeing the welcome screen? Those are regular questions we're asking whenever a low-priority fix is being SRUed, since as always every SRU carries some risk involved (and generates an update to be downloaded by all users) - so I'd just like to be completely sure it's something we'd like to have for good reasons.

Hey Łukasz. Those users are not being told about livepatch and cool applications available as snap, also they don't have the opportunity to help with metrics collecting. I'm not going to argue on whether those are "low" priority, we do believe they are useful to users though.

Just to reiterate what Seb said - I think that its important that we give users the opportunity to send hardware metrics and be given the option to set up Livepatch.
