jensreuterberg updated subscribers of T6831: Top-notch usability and productivity for basic software.

There is a huge amount of antipathy towards installation wizards but one idea me and @adridg have talked and worked a little on is making Calamares have a "first set up" thing during the installation phase where you usually have a random slideshow. So instead of seeing random information that few bothers with you use that time to set up things for the core user (multiple users is a bit of a PITA)

Sure thing - I worry that there may be some technical difficulties even though I, with my limited technical skillset, can't foresee any. (Waiting nervously for a dev to kick down my door and kill me :) )

jensreuterberg added a comment to D8441: Wallpaper: hide color or blur filling options for full filling mode.

Heh I may be the one who used transparent images - the idea being that you could, in theory set colour of an entire wallpaper based on icon colour using the correct kind of transparent image (essentially making darker parts less transparent meaning the lighter the area the brighter the underlying colour, creating a monochromatic image). To be quite frank as an idea it demanded slightly more work than was feasible, so I support this.

I agree with this change but want to add, for posterity, since we don't know the future effects: IF something collaps due to this, some text-colour-to-icon thing pops up - we need to revert or work around it. So essentially banking on the edit to be easily done and easier reverted.

To be quite honest I don't think there is a complete agreement on the layouts of the systray dialogues, although one should be considered - but since systray dialogues have a bit of a history and there are still plans going about another systray dialogue layout, we should be careful with adding work to current design.

jensreuterberg updated subscribers of D7810: Add missing icon sizes.

Well the issue is that they are not "scalable" - I mean the goal should rather be to make them functionable on all sizes but being SVG's means that they may become misaligned when rendered. (Ie if you make an icon made for one size slightly bigger or smaller it will risk suddenly becoming blurry).

I would avoid the shadows and frames personally - it would be better to focus on better spacing between the two areas and a clearer font usage to define them. Like Broulik mentions it was removed more or less by active choice.

In regards to print material - the flyer is the big downside I feel. It looked nice, but there where problems during printing (two graphical elements fell out and since there was no time for proof-printing it all had to just trundle on ahead) - it was also rushed through in terms of content and I feel that this is something I would love to work on for the future. Tbh I also think that we could - IF we rewrite the forward facing wikipages or project pages core description (as per Pauls suggestions from Almeria) we should be able to slot them in if there ever is issues finding text. It would be rather nice to have that as well:

The hamburger menu was my suggestion so I should probably say something about it - for me the "launch" option is completely meaningless fluff. Another button to nothing. That being said, if this is something critical in normal usage then it should be in there - and as we have no chance to do a proper test of it doing what everyone else is doing might be preferred.

No end users (depending on how you see "end users" since that includes devs etc but no typical end users at all) but its highly technical since the subject is Qt/QML stuff at the same time there are quite a hefty amount of salespeople and people in charge of purchases (a waaay higher suit-to-tshirt ratio).

We could use some sort of "glow" around a flat event? Essentially a deeper colour as border around the event (with square shape) and then the event itself in a lighter colour? That way the events would be easily seperated.

Really nice @amunshi although I would prefer it if the buttons followed some colour scheme further indicating the risk inherent in the varying versions. The initial idea was to make a seperate page entirely for the testing editions and invert the colors (black background etc) to show "this is really not suggested unless you ACTUALLY know what you're doing". Essentially doing the testing version buttons on the right #31363b and the same white text would have the same effect in this case, so keeping the layout but changing the background of the two right hand options (Testing Edition and Neon Developer Edition (Git Unstable))

jensreuterberg added a comment to D5339: Include a bottom toolbar for the application page.

I think both are good (but man those colours Aleix :D also the text should be white)
The logic behind the alternatives for posterity:

  1. Buttons on bottom of Detail view - the install button in the detail view is there for those who will want to read information about the application. The goal being that all applications should have a wealth of meta data (we're not there yet but "one day" etc) and since a user can install from the middle column as well the assumption is that a user in the detail view will be interested in the information within. So the bottom right is in that case (and in the case of left-to-right reading of course) is the naturall place for such a button.
  2. Buttons on the top of Detail view - the back button is in this case slightly more natural as it resembles a breadcrumb its a page system and that is where its often expected, that being said the downside is that it camoflages the install button. Since we don't have coloured buttons and can't make the install button pop out that makes it slightly more tricky.
  3. Coloured areas instead of buttons - this is the tack-and-paste solution to #2's problem. By making strikingly coloured areas instead of buttons we can essentially put the install button wherever we like since it will scream for attention no matter what.

This is tricky, simply because we need communication to reach out to devs - I am not a dev so you guys know best what would attract you, and what is needed. As for Developer Edition with dev tools we could have Neon split into "Unstable", "Stable" and "Developer Edition" and split the page properly into three sections, three individual pages. One Normal ("Stable" former User edition), one with inverted colours (so its dark and scary) which is unstable - and the this. That page need to be marketdly different, not shy away from being technical and provide links and information to development relevant pages as well as contacts to KDE Devs in general.
(which would be interesting having "mentor devs" who's job it is to try to guide people to the right place, or right person to talk to - like welcoming devs or whatever)

This is becoming a huge problem for the future. The issue is that just saying "we need touch gestures" is meaningless unless we know WHY Plasma needs touch gestures. Not as in "everyone else has it" but rather looking closer at what kind of experience we are trying to provide for touch users? Are we intending for it to be something someone sets up? Like a fake touch experience by editing widgets and extensions to make it mimic a touch experience or is this something we need to create?
