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.

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?

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?

These are the good examples of what I think it should be:
I would like to share some suggestions:

I am ok with that idea. I agree that it is redundant.

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.

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

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.

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.

What about something like this as well
Mockup? I can then integrate into my design. Just use wireframes. Nothing fancy.
I would combine the last two KCMs, not the first one given that lists take up so much of the space. The second two KCMs seem to belong in an "advanced" state and can be grouped together.
I have also seen elsewhere something like:
+1 I like this suggestion.
How about even simpler:
I don't have any objections to this revision. If you used one of the suggested colors for text. Let's go for the change.
I have no objections with this changes. Some parts might need alignment help, just to finish it up. Alignment HIG. I have no objections otherwise.
I have no objections to this change. One thing I am concerned about is the speed that these thumbnails will show up. Imagine a movie a few gigs big versus a 10Kb icon. If there are ways to optimize the loading of these previews, it can help tremendously.

Can I suggest to maybe simplify even a little more and remove the category separators? AKA, system, internet?
That is a good cleanup. I would also encourage you to take inspiration from the settings mockups that I made. Where titles and fields are centered aligned. Just to see if it looks good.

Well, looks like there are no objections... hehe

Ok, the second stage of this redesign might be a little easier, it is aligning labels, shrinking comboboxes, and others to the center. Putting labels or "titles" on the 1st third of the space while the rest of the elements are on the 2/3 to the right. I will add a mockup to explain this.

let's do it!
Thank you for your comments. @mart I have some mockups where this is the case and there is a mix of edge to edge content with other controls. I didn't think it looked bad honestly but feels a bit out of place. I can post something on it later tonight.
I love it! Shall we move to the next phase?
Seems good to me. @jensreuterberg ?
I like where this is going, this looks pretty good. Please note that in the future, the 3 buttons at the bottom will likely be taken away and be placed in other areas. The last 2 on the right will belong, in the design, to the GHNS window while the Size will be managed by an icon within the theme gallery item under "edit" or the pencil icon.

I would even go as far as doing this:
Oct 29 2017
Do you know if your colors match any of these?
We don't seem to have anything against it. My only request is that if we do shortcuts, make them use 2 hands instead of just one. If the keys are too close together, this makes it harder to enter. Possibly harder for people with disabilities as well. So, space the sets in 2, one on the left side of the keyboard and the next symbol on the right.
If you assume that most computers that run linux will have a windows key, I would call it just windows. Everyone else uses exceptions really.
What about Windows/Meta + Something, let's say , comma?
Looks good to me! There may be other areas where spacing is also necessary so this is going in a good direction.
No objections from me.

Hey @subdiff Can you show me what those new touchpad modules look like under wayland? Maybe I can adapt the design here.
My thought here was really at ground level, do people really use this? Do we really need this KCM?
So for my own understanding I'm wrapping up (correct me if I'm wrong):
- Normally list views have a background (which is FCFCFC without any transparency or soft shadows at the borders as in the mockups) in Breeze.
- Current qqc scrollview though doesn't have this.
- So the question is if we should just ignore this background in qqc scrollviews or if there needs to be a version of scrollview with background so that it is like in the mockups and not different from other components.

Could this also be added to global shortcuts if it is not there already? That the user can define the keys to use for Preferences?
any idea how to implement the mouse cursor selection size?
I like this, I would even place the "title" to align with "location" and push the combobox where it says "none" to align with the radial buttons.
blur: another thing i would like to avoid if possible, as we need all this stuff to work correctly if possible also on very low-end hardware where we should render in software mode
I am leaning toward implementing the change. The reason being that the user gets a duplicate indication of focus when likely they might feel confused, I have been at times too, by not knowing clearly where the highlight is. If you have two highlights, how do you know what's going to be activated when hitting enter?
Oct 24 2017
My intention here is that the user manager is simpler, provides focused information and users can quickly identify information.
I hope it wasn't too difficult and I am already seeing an easier interaction with the themes. Even at this early stage.
You might be able to answer those same questions by going to this

Can you guys add a quick picture of what this looks like right now?
looks like many kcms would have a similar structure of thumbnail preview grid... maybe we can componentize that?
Oct 22 2017
Here you can see the full "alpha" graphic design for the entire System Settings. You can find more info in the rest of the design.
Can we do an underline on the text for keyboard focus? (like Dolphin) Or do the two blue shades, like the bar on the left of system settings.
I think this could add "too much" highlighting to the item. What about this? We have the blue line around the item and ALSO have the edit buttons show. The ones where the item gets dark and delete, upload and edit show up. I think that would be pretty obvious to where your keys are. It would also be consistent with the rest of the UI.
I hope I can answer this:

That's a cool idea. I would just try to make it smoother. The proposals still look pretty rough. I don't know programming, but can you tell me the current parameters to create the shadow with this patch? Blur, spread, color?
Oct 13 2017
If you click add, then you see the bottom fields and when you are done, the new identity and server are placed at the top
