kubuntu-settings (1:14.04ubuntu15) trusty; urgency=medium

  * [desktop] Drop etc/default/grub.d/50_kubuntu.cfg which contained a
    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR override to turn from Ubuntu into Kubuntu. This issue
    has caused a substantial amount of UEFI/SecureBoot issues, and once again
    is causing Kubuntu to not correctly install on such systems.
    The primary difference is that grub-install will base various attributes
    of the UEFI boot entry on the information set in the variable. However for
    signed UEFI loaders to work it must be locked to the signing name
    (i.e. ubuntu). Instead of continuing to patch compatibility mapping from
    kubuntu to ubuntu every once in a while and having broken UEFI in the
    meantime, we are now stopping to set this variable. While this slightly
    degrades branding (i.e. grub entries will show Ubuntu rather than Kubuntu)
    it is in everyone's best interest to not keep screwing up installation for
    no good reason.
