filipf added a comment to T10201: Window titlebar colors.

Could work. Another thing I forgot is that when windows are unicolor it would be better if the titlebar font was "Noto Sans Semibold", so the text doesn't quite just blend in with the rest of the window.

What I'd propose is:

  • Breeze becomes Breeze Classic
  • Breeze Light becomes Breeze
  • Shadows of inactive windows become less prominent; setting already exists in some window decorations:

Good point. The only problem I'm seeing is that the password and login box cannot be assigned custom colors. The color is determined by the color scheme, which for root is always Breeze, which in turn means the boxes would always be white, even in the dark theme.

I would be all for that if we can make it look cohesive! Your changes look great Having everything being light or dark definitely improves the cohesiveness. However how would you implement the dark/light theming? For obvious reasons SDDM deosn't have access to user configuration data, so it can't just automatically use the same theme that your user account uses.

^ Yes, it's important to note that additional (and unwanted) padding underneath the icon can happen with master, while this patch can add the same above the icon. From my layman's understanding, there is nothing quite solid and absolute values are based on.

FWIW if I backport the spacings and margins prior to D3560 it works great for me. The symmetry around the icon is better than with this diff. (only NotificationItem.qml is modified)

This diff:

Try rolling back NotificationPopup.qml too. They should look very similar to the ones in this patch. (The idea is that the notification in the second screenshot has padding only because arc-kde provides it.)

It's a total non-issue. @rooty and I have been shifting through loads of wallpapers in the past month or so and it hasn't even occurred to us that this (image editor vs. Plasma cropping) might even be a thing. The difference is minor and not noticeable.

I have some concerns about this. Mostly it's about visual consistency and notifications having different padding than other plasmoids. Notice how there's currently more or less equal distance to the left of Audio Volume and to the left of the album cover icon?

filipf added a comment to T10230: Kubuntu: Use the Ubuntu font unstead of Noto.

My 2 cents:

  • the Ubuntu font has a lot more personality than Noto
  • design wise it may down to preference, but nonetheless I think Ubuntu is not quite a top-tier font (but is better than Noto)
  • the Ubuntu font really is thicker, which makes it a bit more legible
  • Noto has crazy script support, beats Ubuntu in this category
  • 11pt is great for laptops that need a scaling factor of 1.1 or 1.2, but represents a negative change for desktop machines
  • the question of how well Plasma and the Ubuntu font fit together is worth asking, although we may just not be used to the two being paired
  • it's also important to guarantee that upstream will not mess sth up, but anecdotally speaking, I don't think I've ever had a problem with this, and I always non-default fonts.

^ Actually that makes sense, if font rendering looks good OOTB they probably wouldn't tinker with them. Then the problem are the suboptimal FreeType packages shipped with FOSS-committed distros, as well as the font rendering defaults, as you mentioned. That might be where most of the murmur I read come from, but still, we can't be 100% sure of user behavior.
