The extra icons are uploaded to the same location as before. Done!
Thu, Feb 22
I am in favor of placing the Titles right aligned, but only if we don't put more than 1 control to the right of the title. If we can't compromise on that, another option is to keep titles center-aligned.
I made some changes to the wiki to express my feelings about streamlining the design efforts for the community. Please review the changes and let's discuss it.
The link to all the assets and icons is here:

Guys, what sizes do you need for the icons?

Can you make the navigation open the submenus as soon as you click the heading?
Looks good to me. I would change the hover animation. Most places that use star ratings tend to highlight all stars up to where your cursor is located. It gives the impression that you are also enabling the starts up to your location. If your cursor is in the fourth star, then also highlight the 3 start before it.
I like those suggestions. I would probably not move the previous, however, since they are already loaded in a different screen. But maybe, what would be helpful is to use a menu that showcases the font in some way. For example, like this:

If we work on this new KCM, can we use this image as a guide? This is a system settings design proposal that Marco is also intending to work on. Maybe we can use it for this Wayland KCM as a guide.

Sorry guys, this proposed left alignment just won't work IMHO. The reason is that we are turning the bar into a CSD. Unlike a desktop application, we don't have the ability to shrink the application in mobile. What this amounts to is that people will want to add more controls to the top bar, this will cram the interface and the limited space will run out. Pushing the title to the left doesn't work either, it will bump into the back button. I feel it is best that we drop this conversation for now and focus on the HIG first where we can address these ideas first and then try to adjust applications to it.

How are we accounting for stacking menu items that have:
Will this hide "All" menu items or will it hide after a certain amount of them are in the menu? For example, it will turn into a sub menu after 3 items?
This could work, just the left padding is too much in this patch. Maybe reduce by a 3rd? or Half?

Keep in mind that in most instances, the label is not going to be used. This is just so that we can make sure we have a complete design and don't scramble for a label when we are asked about the design. I selected these because of 2 things. In any logo design, we need monochrome variants so that we can use them as buttons, or even on printed work. The label is an addition to make sure we address that design aspect. But in the desktop, it will appear like any other icon with a label at the bottom. Nothing fancy there. Then the colored one, that is generally used for the application itself or anything that is promoted online, like an app store. So, don't stress too much over those. Are we ready to move forward with the design and create the various sizes? Any details we need to address?
I took the liberty to edit a couple of them and make a final color selection.

Yes, I will upload later today.
Yes! @januz I think you have the best results here. Would you want to take this on and create the final product?

Does this have a look yet?
Wed, Jan 31
I like it! Maybe a way to accentuate that this is an "E" a little more. As a first impression, it didn't strike me as an E for emacs. Overall, the colors are great and the circle shape fits well.
Tue, Jan 30
The second proposal is great too! I love it!
Mon, Jan 29
Ok, so I changed the eye to be more rounded, a little more inviting. I changed the C to a K. Then titled the image more upwards so as to show a view and not like the falcon was soaring. With the colors, keep in mind that all of these can be changed and altered. Most logos have a monochrome version as well. Also, I am not sure what is meant with making it darker. Do you mean adding more black to the icon? Or making the colors closer to their darker level? I also added some color variations that you can see.
Sun, Jan 28
Ok, here is a first draft for an application icon.
Sat, Jan 27
I can help with the application logo. @andreask Would you be able to help with the app control icons?
Fri, Jan 26
I am interested in this, I would like to help. Maybe @andreask can also help. Can you please detail what icons are needed? For example, application icon, navigation icons, menu icons, etc.
Is this change purely a conversation of what developers use in code to call up fonts in their applications? Or does this also include a discussion where regular users have interfaces that allow changes to font naming? Let's say, something like System Settings that would allow users to change the naming for system fonts?

I like it, it is definitively softer. The horizontal length could be shrunk a bit. Maybe 150, or 100?
Jan 23 2018
Could you please share a screenshot of the issue?
I like this idea. Can the bookmark list be offloaded to a temp file while the browser isn't running?
I am in favor of this idea visually.
Jan 22 2018
I highly doubt that we will turn this work into a mobile app in the same way. We are not close to that discussion yet. Empty space works best in desktop. It allows people to focus. To cram every corner of the interface with a lot of data is also very challenging for finding your way. I can definitively review the margins. As of right now, we don't have a lot of work going into this project so I prefer to address this question once there is more development into it.

Will this OSD need any kind of styling? Or will we just use what was shown above in the screenshot?
Jan 10 2018
I like it. I think it falls in line with a less obtrusive bar and one that demands attention.

Would you consider changing the word "Normal" for something more related to measurements? For example, regular, default, current. Normal works better in other languages like Spanish where it is related to measurements. In English that link is not as strong.
Jan 4 2018
Make it really obvious where newly-installed apps can be found
Jan 3 2018
I like this, seems very intuitive, in a corner, less thinking in selecting the item.
This is great work. I like the results. I like the gap as well. It makes for a good idea of separation. What I would maybe want to add would be some sort of effect, darkening, or slight zooming in/out when moving a window from one desktop to another. Also, to make transitions even smoother, is there a way that Plasma can know the framerate that the computer is capable of?

The only thing that we could address later is that the concentration of this shadow for the menus makes it so that the shadows become a tad darker. Since the space they have to spread in is smaller, the colors combine a little bit making the shadow be more pronounced. This is work for the future of course. It looks pretty acceptable to me from the screenshots.

Could you please post a new video with a before and after? I would like to preview it.
Dec 30 2017
@hpereiradacosta I feel this is a good direction for the theme. I am sure we can evolve it to fit new ideas.
Dec 29 2017
I love it! People, please accept. Just notice how the depth perception works better this way. With the current implementation, shadows don't show a strong depth perception and they almost disappear. I like this new patch a lot!
Dec 27 2017
Can you post an image of what this will look like?
Dec 14 2017
What should be the move here?
@ngraham Do we want to push something like this forward?
Dec 13 2017
I like it! Sometimes you don't know where your screenshots went.
Dec 12 2017
Does the grid and spacing cover only the areas in yellow, or does it cover the entire screen?
Is there a screenshot of this change?

I agree. Wizards in mobile are simple, to the point and disappear once you learned your way around. We could follow a similar concept for wizards on the desktop.
Nov 27 2017
Is there room for visual redesign in this proposal? Or are we thinking that this is more of polishing existing applications without a lot of changes?
Nov 22 2017
Could you maybe add a rough mockup of this suggestion? Just for more clarity. Also, we discussed some time ago that it would be ok for the "install" from file to be in Discover and that GHNS would "also" be in discover. What do you think? Should we do that or keep "install from file" in the same window where the themes are?
Nov 21 2017
These are the good examples of what I think it should be:
I would like to share some suggestions:
Nov 20 2017
I am ok with that idea. I agree that it is redundant.
Nov 17 2017
What's the point of having the "open" button if this scrollview is accepted? After all, you won't see much more if you click open and an install button and a package description.
Nov 12 2017
My perspective here is that instead of using an actual checkbox to enable the dragging, I would create visual handles instead. Maybe something like this:

I think that people these days understand that indexing your files is a component of searching. If the word indexing is not liked, maybe it could be
Nov 8 2017
I like this change, I think it makes sense. However, if there is a way to know that the user "means" to use shadow then lets do this. If the user means to do "glow" this behavior should stay.
Nov 7 2017
Can we at least find something more legible? I don't care if it is my suggestion or not, just something more approachable and readable.
Just on the first image
I would agree, keyboard shortcut seems better. It just felt like the label didn't have context for the shortcut button next to it.
Nov 5 2017
What about something like this as well
Mockup? I can then integrate into my design. Just use wireframes. Nothing fancy.
