lavender added a comment to T10891: Breeze theme evolution.

The first highlighted pushbutton (where the cursor is) is less visible in your version than noah's due to the contrast. And the radiobuttons has weird artifacts but maybe that's a compression thing.

Visible as in readable, or discernible? I agree with the former as it has lower text/BG contrast, but not with the latter as the contrast between the button and the area around it went up. Plasma Blue (#3daee9), as it is, might be just too bright for a dark theme. A darker/paler blue (#428AAE) has a better contrast rating with both the background and the text (3.41 and 3.74 respectively, using https://jxnblk.github.io/colorable/demos/text). As for the artifacts, they are due to me quite literally selecting a color range and replacing it with another, so there was some collateral damage...

lavender added a comment to T10891: Breeze theme evolution.

That might be because the colors are dark and the shadows are just more dark (black). I don't think there's anything that can be done about that and you should probably stick to light themes.

What if the shadow/blur used a color that contrasts the background?

well, in order to have good contrast, the shadow would have to be a glow instead of a shadow. I think most users want to have a shadow and anyone who wants to change the shadow color can already do that.

@johan.boule you are talking about two things if I understand you correctly: inefficiency and inconsistency/bugs. If there isn't an issue open for the konsole issue, you should open one or join the discussion because everyone agrees that manpages should be readable. As for efficiency: where do you feel that Breeze is lacking compared to "classic" themes? Maybe there is a way of improving that too. Glad that you decided to join the discussion.

@ngraham it was closed as wontfix, it's a top down decision that happened without discussion. It has nothing to do with that it wasn't visible, in fact the sysadmin made an effort to make it less visible (removing sysadmin, websites, etc.). I don't know how you don't see this as a top down decision.

The example of school project happened in the other task that's why I mention it. I addressed all the claims made but someone else said they made a school project about tor and the sysadmin immediately disregarded what I had to say and the ticket was removed from sysadmin grouo, that is to say it's not in the wishlist even. It means that they are done talking about it (there was no discussion at all). I don't think this represents the KDE community but what is the next step at that point?

@ngraham I see what you are saying but de facto I've been doing all the things you can expect someone coordinating a goal to do - make a coherent proposal, make the issues, track the progress, keep my eye on other projects and chime in when there are issues that intersect with the goal. The difference is I don't have the social capital of some of the 'big names' who make the decisions, so even though I might know more about a subject it might still get ignored.

For this, a better UX might be provided by taking inspiration from mobile, where the user is generally asked once to allow the current app some kind of blanket permission (access the camera, access contacts, etc). If we did that, then the user would authorize Spectacle to be able to take screenshots once, and never have to think about it again.

There was no discussion, it was made without even understanding the possibilities or how much bandwidth it would take. One of reasons given was that subdomains wouldn't work which just isn't true. It was a top down decision. I'm not too concerned with being called passive aggressive by someone I'm criticising. I'm not talking to you but to the wider KDE community. You passive aggressively removed the sysadmin task to block any further discussion and you're trying to stifle discussion again.

The KDE sysadmins recently closed the onion service task no after it stood open for 1 year with no comments. Does KDE not care about users in places such as Kazakhstan? https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1567114

lavender added a comment to T10783: Right-click on touch.

The problem with two-finger tap/click on a touchscreen is that it's not predictable which part of the screen will get clicked. This isn't a problem with a touchpad because there's an always-visible cursor to show you what will get clicked, but on a touchscreen this isn't the case. I think we need to consider touchscreens as separate input devices with their own quirks. People at this point are quite familiar with how touchscreens work and what gestures they generally recognize (e.g. tap, single-finger scroll, and pinch), probably more so than laptop touchpads.

lavender added a comment to T10783: Right-click on touch.

On most touch devices I'm familiar with, it either does nothing or is the start of a pinch gesture. This seems sensible enough to me.

The screen area covered by two fingers is too big to use it for anything that may interact with any given control, many of which are smaller than the area of the fingers. Imagine if your cursor on a desktop PC was like a 150×100 rectangle lol

lavender added a comment to T10783: Right-click on touch.

A touchpad is:

  1. smaller than a touchscreen
  2. not visually mapped to the content (no hover semantics, no guide markers contents to help orient a touch relative to viewport)

    What this ends up causing is from the first point, we can't possibly map an absolute (x, y) on the touchpad to an absolute (x, y) on a viewport because the accuracy is too low (imagine having to tap the right part of a touchpad that corresponds to where a link is on the screen),

I agree, I think it's unhelpful that an issue that was open and stood there for more than a year was closed based on misinformation. I would like to have a discussion without dismissing the concerns and insights of others, especially when one might have a misguided sense of being an authority on a subject. It gets in the way of a constructive discussion. I was trying to say that it got personal for no reason and that now the conversation isn't about how to set up onion services and the benefits that it might offer or clearing up the misconceptions about subdomains for example.

Would have liked to hear some of the discussion as this has been sitting here with no discussion for more than a year. I think there must be some misconceptions because you can have subdomains on onion services (for example facebook has subdomains on their onion service) and as for referring to kde.org I think a simple regex can fix that pretty easily (the same thing that is done to http:// links). Users of tor browser can and will prevent third-party connections if that is what they are worried about, there's a very nice security slider where you can set that.

Also, should KDE review it's default key mapping ? I end up having to configure switch desktop up/down/left/right to crtl+alt+arrow. Are there many other default mapping that could be added ? also never found what was : alt+shift+backtab ...

I like using meta+arrow to title a window, but more commands should be added for true keyboard navigation. like move to desktop/screen, fullscreen, put focus on screen X...

Perhaps review defaults shortcuts, do pools to find what ppl change and try to define a complete set of shortcut commands that would please most ? Or provide different default key-profile ?

IMO a good default key mapping is a huge part of Accessibility. I think those should be intuitive and easy to remember.
agree here. many parts are not reachable using shortcuts at all.
try to access the notification area or networks using shortcuts..

it is what i m going to tell here... we talk about enterprise desktop. but simple tasks are not possible using keyboard only at all... until this happens..we don't need even to think about kerberos or special auth algorithms.

we strugle at the basics here.

by the way... also if wikipedia is an other opinion. accessibility is not only a part for blind or impaired people. i m not blind and want to use my desktop like an pro using my keyboard....

On trackpads we already have two point touch. If we want to introduce a different/special case for touch screens we should also discuss whether it should be a special case or if for example long press should be right click on trackpads as well.

Trackpads are a different use-case, and users may spend time with their fingers resting on them and will not expect a right-click to be generated. I wouldn't expect the same conventions on a trackpad and a touchscreen.

The problem is that the proposal doesn't tell us how we should prioritise differently. Because people have different experiences (broadly speaking) they will think different things should be prioritised so with setting the goals we are already trying to have a discussion on what we want to prioritise. So just saying "prioritise the things that are good" is too vague because good means different things to different people.

I think there is merit in having a robust tiling experience out of the box no matter how it is implemented, whether baked into kwin or through kwin scripts. Having support in Plasma for it would also mean then exposing it to the user in a discoverable way and documenting it (some users might have never heard of tiling but would like it), I think there is something to be said about it being an accessibility feature as well.

My suggestions for this proposal would be to focus it around Organizations which is far more general instead of Big Enterprise and change the "how would we know we succeeded" to something like "we see more distributions switch to Plasma as default" or something like that instead of naming specific ones. We have no control over whether a certain distribution picks Plasma because those choices are not just based on popularity or how good our software is - for example Red Hat is heavily involved in GNOME and I don't see them switching to Plasma even if a lot of people on a forum asked for it.

Should we have input methods as a goal or maybe something a bit more broad such as Accessibility?

Hey, thanks for taking the time to write this! I have to say though I think this is way too specific to be a Goal. If you search around here and the bugtracker you will find multiple discussions about this and what the current roadblocks are.

I created T11052 to discuss the idea of an Accent Color system and related components for Plasma.

lavender added a comment to T10497: Clean up the default color scheme selection.

Tangentially related; I created T11052 to discuss the idea of an Accent Color system which would kind of fill the void of the additional color schemes we don't ship anymore with Breeze ;)

Radically improve the UX for switching between common panel UIs (e.g. Windows XP style task var vs Dock). This probably needs its own Phab task.

Really good effort, here are two relevant links: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorifyHOWTO

lavender added a comment to D21489: Add a case for mkinitcpio (Arch Linux) in helper.cpp - plymouthhelper.

Instead of just using it when it's there, it would probably make more sense to add a CMake variable that allows the distro to choose which code path to use. See for example https://cgit.kde.org/kdenetwork-filesharing.git/tree/CMakeLists.txt#n50

When there are 2 or digits, maybe the circle can expand to become pill-shaped

The circle comes from Plasma theme, cannot transform it.
