KonqiDragon added a comment to T12707: The New Future of KDE neon.

I agree, the proposed "KDE OS" version of Neon should continue to strive to be as vanilla as possible. It doesn't make sense to create a showpiece for KDE software that diverges from what KDE software does by default. If the default is bad, change the default. :)

I think a large part of this task is simply admitting that Neon is already an OS, and being proud of this fact rather than trying to hide it in the futile effort to avoid upsetting people who are already upset. Slimbook ships it on hardware. My wife who is sitting next to me has it on her laptop. It's an OS; if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is a duck. :)

Let's not get sidetracked with the promo angle too early. Paul is right: we need to decide on a course of action and then execute the plan before we promote the message we want to communicate as a result of this plan.

I don't think Promo is the place to start carrying out this task. It seems to me that you would need to incentivise some deeper changes in KDE neon before thinking of promoting it as feature-complete distribution. As you say:

I really want to see KDE neon as the flagship os, but to realistically, this is requires to (hard) development.

And the Promo workboard is not where you should be asking for support to do that, (a) because we don't do that kind of thing in Promo -- it is more a developer/packager thing; and (b) because we don't tell others what they should do. We work with the end product, not influence (or try to influence) what that end product should be.

I do agree that this would be a good thing to promote when the first part, the part where you turn neon into a feature-complete distribution, is completed, but to carry out that, I think you have to take this task to another board.

KonqiDragon added a comment to T12419: OSD improvements.

Thanks for the detailed summary, @alexde!

I like how looks a Volume and Brightness indicators in MacOS, it's has a dividing lines (blocks), if i'm not mistaken 1 block has a 5% of volume or brightness level.

That's basically the current style (ours uses a slider instead of blocks, but that's not a big difference). The problem we're trying to solve with is that some people complain about the large square OSD style because changing the volume while watching a full-screen video results in the OSD briefly obscuring the center of the video. macOS suffers from the same problem with their large square OSD, so it is a legitimate concern.

Though I like the status quo for aesthetics, I find myself gravitating towards variant 1 as my favorite solution to the problem described here. The biggest drawback with this style is that it can obscure subtitles in full-screen videos if it's positioned too high up. But if it's positioned quite close to the bottom of the screen, maybe that concern can be alleviated?

We can always not having anything on top.

A few thoughts about the mockup:

  • Search button placement is not good. It's visually disconnected from the part of the UI it affects (Dolphin has the same problem)
    • Elisa currently puts it in a very good spot
  • Main control bar is too wide and tall.
  • Elisa seems to built around playlists, so adding a way to quickly access them to the sidebar is a good idea that can be adapted into the current design.
  • Is the heart Last.fm integration? Isn't that out of fashion now?
  • The repeat and shuffle buttons look like they're on opposite sides for visual balance, but it's better for usability to put them next to each other. They're strongly related to each other and are placed next to each other in every other music player.

Sorry, i don't know how improve toolbar. But, you can improve it! I attach a SVG file of this mockup in description.
I VERY don't like that in current Elisa a playback controls is on top, becouse i use Spotify and on other my favorite music players playback controls is on bottom, so I decided to move the playback control to bottom.

"I personally don't like it" is not a good reason to change something. Having the playback controls on top is natural since it puts them into the app's toolbar area, where most apps have their global tools and actions.

Based on this screenshot, I don't think Elisa needs a complete redesign. It mainly needs the following:

  • More colorscheme compatibility, unless that has already been fixed
  • We need to decide if some of the styling for its UI elements should be changed to match the Breeze widget style or if our widget style should be changed to match Elisa
  • Pixel perfect icons (maybe colorful icons, but monochrome looks so nice here), but this is mainly a breeze-icons problem, unless Elisa is using 24px icons.

KonqiDragon added a comment to T9041: New "Home" tab for Kickoff.

That's basically the "All Apps" page. If the home page looks like that, then we don't need the "All Apps" page.

This does make some sense though. If we add favorites as the default category on the apps page, then we can use that as the home page. Recent apps could simply be another category there too. And I happen to know that the model supports showing recent documents in yet another category.

So maybe we should just do that.

btw, i'm uploading this from my phone, it might be a bit compressed

alternating stripey backgrounds colors are only used for multi-column lists, because they help you visually align the data for a particular item in the other columns. For single-column lists, we don't need to use alternating background colors.

also, should the tabs have the line over the text like the other mockups or over the text like D25334?

Like in D25334. Thanks!

KonqiDragon added a comment to T9041: New "Home" tab for Kickoff.

I agree, and I also like SimpleMenu quite a bit. It seems that people are settling on having a the main page display list or grid of apps, with a category chooser to narrow down the set, and a subset of the power/session actions visible right there.

I would be quite in favor of simply using SimpleMenu instead, with a small number of tweaks to make it suitable as a general-purpose Kickoff replacement:

  • Use the sliding popups effect to show and hide
  • Scroll long grids rather than having discrete pages
  • Show favorite apps and recently-used apps and documents
  • Make the row of icons-only power/session buttons into a 2x2 grid with text beneath the icons

    I actually started working on a fork of SimpleMenu with some of the above changes in an attempt to make something upstream friendly: https://cgit.kde.org/scratch/ngraham/supermenu.git/

    But I kind of forgot about it and stopped work more than a year ago. :/

Plasma Default Application Menu:
I dont like this.


Simple Menu:
This is my favorite Application Menu, There's a Search, Categories (even "All"), Grid of Applications with big icons and Shotdown, Lock etc. buttons, it's all in one place :)

Windows 10 Menu:

Brand new Windows 10 Menu: (WIP)

Elementary OS Apps Menu:
It looks like Simple Menu for Plasma, but categories only on second button.

XFCE Menu:
It's simple and convenient, but it doesn't looks modern.

Linux Mint (Cinnamon) Menu:
Reminds me a XFCE Menu, but in the left have place for Favorites Applications and Shotdown.
