There we go. Noticed there was a slight imperfection with the icon alignment in the previous edit so fixed that.
Rename 'nepomuk' Plasma Theme icons to 'search' and redesign Oxygen/Air 'search' icon
Rename 'nepomuk' Plasma Theme icons to 'search'
*sigh* It seems scour-icon decided to nuke the layer names that made the icons identifiable, working on fixing that now.
^ that was just me scour-icon'ing the SVG file as I forgot to initially.
Rename 'nepomuk' Plasma Theme icons to 'search' and restyle Oxygen/Air Search Icon
Rename 'nepomuk' Plasma Theme icons to 'search' and restyle Oxygen/Air's icon
Hmph... Oxygen has a low-quality 'search' icon. I'll update the diff again in a bit to add a higher quality version of the icon in SVG form if I can find a higher quality SVG of the icon from Oxygen.
Rename 'nepomuk' Plasma Theme icons to 'search'
Alright, I'll look into having a replacement icon for Oxygen/Air.
If anyone has any issues with removing the 'nepomuk' icon theming, please be sure to let me know so I can add them back in again on this patch to be alongside the 'search' theming to sort that issue out.

Alternatively, we could make use of the tech Plasma uses to launch Latte if a Global Theme specifies Latte as a startup service.
@mvourlakos Is there currently a D-Bus method for starting Latte that can be used? Asking to save myself looking around for it when I work on the Global Theme KCM Code once more.

Some more ideas I'd like to see implemented, when we add accent colours, on the colour scheme creation side:
Fri, Jan 3
If those ideas are implemented, Dolphin looks just like it does in these concepts layout-wise and Recent is placeable in the Places part as just "Recent" it'd be darn perfect.
Just an idea I'd love to see implemented:
- Have the fallback menu button if no menu is shown be an optional toolbar component that can be moved or removed
- Have the menu appear when pressing ALT and then disappear after being used, like in Windows.

But would it still carry out the operation if that message displayed or not?

Does the command work when Latte Dock is already running in the background? Just asking now so I don't accidentally cause the import to happen twice if Latte Dock is running.
Alright, I'm going to try and implement this now Feren OS Dec 2019 is done.

"Re-create a theme that looks and feels like Windows 7?"

Apart from desiring having a 'Global Style' sub-KCM for only applying the Theme part of the Global Theme like how Desktop Layout is only applying the Layout part of the Global Theme, this is pretty much perfect already for a Proof-of-Concept and in terms of its GUI design.

At its simplest, it'd probably look like this, however it would be nice if it had a tickbox directly above it for enabling desktop background dependant colouring instead and maybe also have a bunch more colour options. Max cap, I suggest, for custom colours would be 30 custom colours, with every new colour made after that point causing the custom colours to shift backwards once overriding the 1st colour and then the newest one would be on the end of the 30th custom colour.
+1 on the splitting of Global Theme into Global Theme and Desktop Layout.

Just an idea for the redesign: Maybe have an optional setting for setting an "Accent Colour" at the top of the list which then sets Focus, Hover Decoration and other colours that are basically an Accent Colour setting but with applicable shades. Optional so that people can easily set it all in one go while other people can still have full control over their colour palette.

While I haven't been in the loop much regarding the advantages and disadvantages of both packaging systems, I do know making use of Flatpak or Snaps is a good idea on the terms that we can nail the desktop integration between applications and the overall Plasma and KDE experience first time.

Just in case we do go with the Simple Menu idea, here's the Feren OS mod of Simple Menu to save you flipping the categories and apps list:
I think the layout is entirely fine now if not perfect, TBH, based on the latest comment to have a design in it. The search bar is placed near the menu so users see it first, and the search bar is usually always near the panel.

TBH, I like the Noto Sans design the most, however for font consistency Kabel is kinda decent.

I'll get back to this later, with https://phabricator.kde.org/D23117, but for now this idea is on the backburner (kind of) while I release Feren OS Next. I will get back to this though and start working on making the import Latte Layout call be integrated into the aforementioned patch once I'm done with releasing Feren OS Next officially, though.

How about doing what GNOME does with Adwaita where a small drop shadow is applied on the bottom of the button to create the illusion of a push-in-able button only for the shadow to then go when the button is being pushed down?

Edited code based on feedback and added Latte Dock layout and BorderlessMaximisedWindow value changing functionality
Added in the Latte Dock changing to patch D23117, however direct layout importing is not yet implemented into this patch (I think that should come in a later patch at a later time as you're still working on getting the code completely done on Latte's side at this point in time anyway).
Added support for BorderlessMaximizedWindows and specifying a Latte Layout - Based on a code review, re-added original behaviour for Splash Screen setting if there's no 'defaults' file
Started working on a patch for the Latte Dock layout specifying part at least. Is there a DBus Signal I can use for cleanly quitting Latte so that Look & Feels can also specify to not have Latte running at all?
That is a pretty good idea. Also for Latte not running we can use KWriteConfig for the layout changing part too so it always changes no matter what, though Import will be another pain of its own, potentially.

@fvogt Nope, but now you've mentioned that I've added an extra line if there's no defaults file found to set the Splash Screen to be the Look & Feel name like it originally would do.

Alright, in terms of strings if I were to make one suggestion it'd be this:
Change the SHIFT tips to language like "(Hold SHIFT to Blah)" (e.g.: "Hold SHIFT to Magnify").

To be honest I'd say it'd probably look better if it's more in-line with how status boxes look on Discover (and throughout Kirigami, IIRC) style-wise with its background, border and shadows, but hey that's just my opinion on it.

If I add my late input on this: I'd say the + should indeed be on the right side of the input and on the right of - so that both are touching each other. Just that this is the most commonly used design that users except for a spinbutton outside of both being on top of each other (aka the currently used design), plus it'd add a bit of consistency with the GTK Breeze themeing.

I'd like to step in here if it's fine. I've been working on Feren OS Next, a Plasma-using Ubuntu Distribution that aims to do multiple things. One of those things happens to be providing a more-complete Look & Feel layout application process which affects more than what it currently does.
Examples of things it also affects includes:
- The current Latte Dock layout being used
- The titlebar buttons layout in both KWin and GTK Headerbars (when used in conjunction with an XSettings Daemon like the one Feren OS Next uses, otherwise only KWin is affected)
- The applied GTK 2 and 3 theme
- The icon set applied to GTK 2 and 3 Applications to add consistency
- The cursor theme applied to GTK 2 and 3 Applications for the same reason
- Whether titlebars are hidden on maximise
- Whether to assign Meta input to Latte Dock or Plasmashell (this was before I found out that Latte Dock made that an option in their Settings window)
