@kossebau You say stay focused and then repeat my criticism of this being security theater, except needlessly wordy. That's... interesting. I'm very focused on what we can do to improve the security situation, I think pointing out others that actively work against it (some sysadmins to say the least) is a part of that focus. I think you ignoring my criticism and acting like you came up with it on your own is part of this social capital problem I'm talking about.

lavender added a comment to T10891: Breeze theme evolution.

The first highlighted pushbutton (where the cursor is) is less visible in your version than noah's due to the contrast. And the radiobuttons has weird artifacts but maybe that's a compression thing.

Visible as in readable, or discernible? I agree with the former as it has lower text/BG contrast, but not with the latter as the contrast between the button and the area around it went up. Plasma Blue (#3daee9), as it is, might be just too bright for a dark theme. A darker/paler blue (#428AAE) has a better contrast rating with both the background and the text (3.41 and 3.74 respectively, using https://jxnblk.github.io/colorable/demos/text). As for the artifacts, they are due to me quite literally selecting a color range and replacing it with another, so there was some collateral damage...

That might be because the colors are dark and the shadows are just more dark (black). I don't think there's anything that can be done about that and you should probably stick to light themes.

What if the shadow/blur used a color that contrasts the background?

well, in order to have good contrast, the shadow would have to be a glow instead of a shadow. I think most users want to have a shadow and anyone who wants to change the shadow color can already do that.

@johan.boule you are talking about two things if I understand you correctly: inefficiency and inconsistency/bugs. If there isn't an issue open for the konsole issue, you should open one or join the discussion because everyone agrees that manpages should be readable. As for efficiency: where do you feel that Breeze is lacking compared to "classic" themes? Maybe there is a way of improving that too. Glad that you decided to join the discussion.

@ngraham I see what you are saying but de facto I've been doing all the things you can expect someone coordinating a goal to do - make a coherent proposal, make the issues, track the progress, keep my eye on other projects and chime in when there are issues that intersect with the goal. The difference is I don't have the social capital of some of the 'big names' who make the decisions, so even though I might know more about a subject it might still get ignored.

For this, a better UX might be provided by taking inspiration from mobile, where the user is generally asked once to allow the current app some kind of blanket permission (access the camera, access contacts, etc).

lavender added a comment to T10783: Right-click on touch.

The problem with two-finger tap/click on a touchscreen is that it's not predictable which part of the screen will get clicked. This isn't a problem with a touchpad because there's an always-visible cursor to show you what will get clicked, but on a touchscreen this isn't the case. I think we need to consider touchscreens as separate input devices with their own quirks. People at this point are quite familiar with how touchscreens work and what gestures they generally recognize (e.g. tap, single-finger scroll, and pinch), probably more so than laptop touchpads.

lavender added a comment to T10783: Right-click on touch.

On most touch devices I'm familiar with, it either does nothing or is the start of a pinch gesture. This seems sensible enough to me.

The screen area covered by two fingers is too big to use it for anything that may interact with any given control, many of which are smaller than the area of the fingers. Imagine if your cursor on a desktop PC was like a 150×100 rectangle lol

lavender added a comment to T10783: Right-click on touch.

A touchpad is:

  1. smaller than a touchscreen
  2. not visually mapped to the content (no hover semantics, no guide markers contents to help orient a touch relative to viewport)

    What this ends up causing is from the first point, we can't possibly map an absolute (x, y) on the touchpad to an absolute (x, y) on a viewport because the accuracy is too low (imagine having to tap the right part of a touchpad that corresponds to where a link is on the screen),

Also, should KDE review it's default key mapping ? I end up having to configure switch desktop up/down/left/right to crtl+alt+arrow. Are there many other default mapping that could be added ? also never found what was : alt+shift+backtab ...

I like using meta+arrow to title a window, but more commands should be added for true keyboard navigation. like move to desktop/screen, fullscreen, put focus on screen X...

Perhaps review defaults shortcuts, do pools to find what ppl change and try to define a complete set of shortcut commands that would please most ? Or provide different default key-profile ?

IMO a good default key mapping is a huge part of Accessibility. I think those should be intuitive and easy to remember.
agree here. many parts are not reachable using shortcuts at all.
try to access the notification area or networks using shortcuts..

it is what i m going to tell here... we talk about enterprise desktop. but simple tasks are not possible using keyboard only at all... until this happens..we don't need even to think about kerberos or special auth algorithms.

we strugle at the basics here.

by the way... also if wikipedia is an other opinion. accessibility is not only a part for blind or impaired people. i m not blind and want to use my desktop like an pro using my keyboard....

On trackpads we already have two point touch. If we want to introduce a different/special case for touch screens we should also discuss whether it should be a special case or if for example long press should be right click on trackpads as well.

Trackpads are a different use-case, and users may spend time with their fingers resting on them and will not expect a right-click to be generated. I wouldn't expect the same conventions on a trackpad and a touchscreen.

The problem is that the proposal doesn't tell us how we should prioritise differently. Because people have different experiences (broadly speaking) they will think different things should be prioritised so with setting the goals we are already trying to have a discussion on what we want to prioritise. So just saying "prioritise the things that are good" is too vague because good means different things to different people.

I think there is merit in having a robust tiling experience out of the box no matter how it is implemented, whether baked into kwin or through kwin scripts. Having support in Plasma for it would also mean then exposing it to the user in a discoverable way and documenting it (some users might have never heard of tiling but would like it), I think there is something to be said about it being an accessibility feature as well.

My suggestions for this proposal would be to focus it around Organizations which is far more general instead of Big Enterprise and change the "how would we know we succeeded" to something like "we see more distributions switch to Plasma as default" or something like that instead of naming specific ones. We have no control over whether a certain distribution picks Plasma because those choices are not just based on popularity or how good our software is - for example Red Hat is heavily involved in GNOME and I don't see them switching to Plasma even if a lot of people on a forum asked for it.

Instead of just using it when it's there, it would probably make more sense to add a CMake variable that allows the distro to choose which code path to use. See for example https://cgit.kde.org/kdenetwork-filesharing.git/tree/CMakeLists.txt#n50

When there are 2 or digits, maybe the circle can expand to become pill-shaped

The circle comes from Plasma theme, cannot transform it.

lavender updated subscribers of T8755: Use colors from the system colorscheme for the Task Manager's accent color in Breeze Light/Dark desktop themes.

@Zren Since you have experience with https://github.com/Zren/plasma-applet-alphablackcontrol I'm interested in your thoughts about how it could be upstreamed in some form. Eventually we can maybe get to an experience like we were talking about:

If you mean automatically adjusting rows with checkboxes and radio buttons, this could be nice. However, I see some possible technical problems (sizeHint() races as the size depends on other elements, etc).

lavender added a comment to D21378: Make Breeze Light/Dark use more system colors.

So I have a light widget color scheme, but I want to be using a dark Plasma theme. My color scheme is a bit funky and when I use Breeze Dark it doesn't respect my colors. So this is a good solution, +1 for the idea.

I gave it a quick spin with Breeze Dark however and it's just not picking up some color schemes. It remains stuck on the colors of some previous scheme that worked. This seems to be random and may be a bug originating elsewhere so I'm hitting accept.

After changing the system colorscheme, did you try restarting plasmashell or switching to a different desktop theme and switching back? I'll admit, it's a bit janky, but it should work if you do that. It definitely seems like a bug that originates from elsewhere.

Restarting plasmashell yes, switching to a different theme nope. But I did now and that seems to be working.

the idea is kinda nice and with some schemes it will work just perfect...
however i think it risks a lot of having loss in contrast on certain color schems with your patch try for instance breezedark and the honeycomb system theme, the current task highlight would probably almost disappear
