How to make redesign of KDE Store if it is based on opendesktop.org? There you can only change the pictures.

@KonqiDragon: Seems like you never used KPA (or thought about what you're writing here). It's not "old", it's actively developed and up-to-date. And it serves a complete different purpose than Gwenview. Gwenview is a viewer, KPA is a tagging and archiving program. Don't compare apples and oranges.

Why do KDE need to support the old KPhotoAlbum when we have a modern Gwenview? Let's just stop supporting KPhotoAlbum.

KonqiDragon added a comment to T11346: Welcome Screen refresh.

Here is a potential idea for how we can do this. I think the community competition might be a little ways off. When it comes time to implement this, we could do the news section first on the left side and leave the community stuff as-is. Once we get the community competitions going we can start working more on the updated welcome screen integration with it.

Let me know if there are any issues or things that we need to include.

This sounds like a potential sub-task to a larger discussion with the monthly art challenge stuff. We need to do a bit more discussion on what that is going to look like, or who is going to have time to manage it. There might be a task already for that, but I cannot find one at the moment.

KonqiDragon added a comment to T11300: Rename KCalc -> Kalculator.

I agree with @niccolove that we should not rename a project without strong reasons to do so, because tutorials, docs and a lot of other things would suddenly be outdated and not easy to find anymore.

Therefore I don't think renaming Kdenlive or Gwenview is a good idea. KCalc / Kalculator would be fine as there isn't too much information online, but again, renaming programs does always require a non-trivial amount of work to be done (renaming internal functions, changing Bugzilla products, etc.).

KonqiDragon added a comment to T10891: Breeze theme evolution.

On the topic of the dark theme: I think it currently has too much contrast. Most elements you see have a dark background with light text and light borders, which makes you (or in this case, me?) focus almost as much on the borders as their content. Making the borders more subdued, giving the tab area a lighter color to make up for it, making the buttons lighter than their borders, and using more pastel colors could be a start. Here's a quick edit of @ndavis 's screenshot/mockup as an example:

As an extra I also changed how the tabs look a bit, and removed the "General" header (It seemed redundant). I think the result looks easier on the eyes, even for a quick edit.

KonqiDragon added a comment to D12992: New elisa icon.

I think we are trying hard to accommodate and the elements are not lending themselves to turn them into an E with some musical tones. I reviewed a few music sheets looking for commonalities. I feel also that the icon is busy, it is trying really hard to tell you that this app is about music. I feel we can simplify and provide other ideas.

Here is a proposal. Not final. I welcome feedback. The idea here is to show soundwaves instead.

KonqiDragon added a comment to T11243: Update kde.org/plasma-desktop.

The whole situation is somewhat awkward. But until and unless it is somehow resolved, we should not explicitly recommend KDE Neon as "The KDE Distro". I agree with @paulb that we should have some objective criteria (e.g. ships Plasma by default; ships reasonably recent versions, etc.) and use those to recommend a few distros. If Neon winds up meeting the criteria, that's fine. But it needs to be rule-based rather than just us promoting Neon because it's ours. My sense is that a final list based on the above will probably wind up consisting of Neon, openSUSE, Kubuntu, and Manjaro (with a link to the full distro list), but I might be missing a few.

KonqiDragon added a comment to T11243: Update kde.org/plasma-desktop.

@niccolove I agree that this page isn't the best, but promoting KDE Neon too much will make a lot of people angry. Maybe we could only promote distro with KDE edition (openSUSE, Kubuntu, Manjaro, and a lot more). A page with "Buy a computer with Plasma" with TUXEDO, Slimbook, Pinebook, ... could be interesting too, but we should determine first if e.V. agree linking to commercial product.

Or use some icon which we already have.

KonqiDragon added a comment to T11247: Attract LXQt to KDE.

LXQt's biggest problem is that Plasma itself is now so lightweight that it infringes on LXQt's stated reason for existence. Accordingly, I don't really think it would make sense for LXQt to join KDE; rather, LXQt will probably die off naturally due to lack of a real niche it can sustainably inhabit, and hopefully we can recruit its refugee developers to KDE-land. I think they're already using some KDE Frameworks, right? If so, they're already gaining some familiarity with our technology stack. All we need to do is encourage that.

KonqiDragon added a comment to T11243: Update kde.org/plasma-desktop.

Sure they do. But their text size to image size ratio is much more balanced than in your example, their text is spaced better, and their page width seems larger than in your example. If you want to do it this way, then the images from your example should be a lot smaller. Ideally it would be 50:50; it looks like the elementary example is pretty close to that.

Or should I find an example of some other project that puts text below images? I mean, we can find a bunch of examples for whatever we want. The point is, the layout of the page should not negatively impact the readability.

Definitely put the text under images - not just on mobile, but on the desktop version as well. It doesn't look good at all when it's offset like that.

KonqiDragon added a comment to T11243: Update kde.org/plasma-desktop.

https://elementary.io has very kool and informative page. In the Plasma page i think need add:

Completely forgot about ElementaryOs, this is a nice source of inspiration ;)

  • Info about very important KDE applications (Discover, Dolphin, etc.).

+1

  • About the power of Plasma customisation (with screenshot examples).

I already planed to create a kool video with a slideshow of screenshot of plasma with each screenshot having an additional modification than the previous.

  • Tell about Plasmoids what it is and what opportunities they have.

Good but we need an easy explanation ;)

  • Possibly* information about the latest important innovations (for example - rewritten notification system in Plsma 5.16).

This is already available in my mockup: http://identity.carlschwan.eu/plasma-desktop-new ;)

  • Demo video about Plasma, because these kool animations must see all. But it must necessarily be made in very high quality. Linux Scoop makes very kool videos about linux distributions, maybe ask him to make a video for KDE about Plasma desktop? Example - KDE neon.

Interesting we should contact him then we have more ideas how this new page should look.

Also need to update a KDE neon page, there is too simple.

Let's do it one step at a time ;)

Btw if you want to contribute (content, design, video, ...), let me know ;)
