Bug Description

question is if the there is enough of a use case to justify this and if there is enough space on the CD

Changed in kubuntu-meta:
status: New → Triaged

As always, I again hit the wrong binary :(

Gwenview and Okular are both required for their specific use cases.

Anyhow, depending on the quality of KOffice 2 (and if it is available by 9.04) we probably should consider dumping openoffice in favor of koffice, which also saves us _a lot_ space on the CD. Either way inlcuding an image editor is a good idea (I actually thought we did at some point)...

What about Kolourpaint (always in kdegraphics)?

Degrade status to Confirmed because we need to discuss what image editor to use.

Kolourpaint is a good idea, doesn't need too much space and allows most common editing tasks.

status: Triaged → Confirmed
summary: - kubuntu should include an image editor by default
+ kubuntu should include kolourpaint
description: updated

Kolourpaint is borderline unmaintained last time I checked... I'm not sure how smart of an idea that'd be.

I would go talk to asegio (release coordinator of kdegraphics) about the unmaintainedness and whether he thinks it is a good idea to have kolourpaint in the default setup then.

Otherwise we are a bit short of options:
1) gimp
2) digikam/showphoto
3) ooo draw

Krita is out of the race since it was rebranded into a drawing app rather than an image editing app.

summary: - kubuntu should include kolourpaint

Probably not the best idea, until upstream can guarantee sufficient support for kolourpaint.

Though, gwenview should be perfectly fine for a lot of minor photo editing needs.
