I had this problem too, but I found a fix! Well, a workaround...

Then, you copy all those icons in the folder /usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps To do so, open a terminal and enter ...

Both the disco repositories and the ppa currently provide version 0.92.4. So you don't need the ppa, remove it: sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:inkscape.dev/stable then update your repositories: sudo apt update and to fix some potential dependency issues (might not be needed, but it's always safe to run): sudo apt install -f then install inkscape: sudo ...

Either way will work fine. KDE is just another skin for Ubuntu, and the same goes for Unity. Both ISOs are the same size, so there's no short-term advantage to downloading one or the other. I recommend you install the one you like the most. That way, if you decide not to install a second DE, or you prefer having a slightly cleaner install, you don't have to ...

It depends on your definition of "useful". It's there so that you don't have to see the different parts of Plasma (e.g. panel, desktop, icons, etc) loading one at a time if your system is slow. There is no problem with turning it off if your system is fast enough that everything appears instantly, or if you don't care that things appear one-at-a-time. ...

In general, it is a bad idea to mix repositories.The KDE packaged for bionic might bring in versions of packages that are incompatible with older Ubuntu versions. Packages will be compiled against libraries available in 18.04 and not necessarily in older versions. If you want to try newer KDE versions and keep a stable system, you could either install KDE ...
