what is panon?
Any suggestion what Category name and items those would be if panon had its own category for it?

We will have a look and hopefully can say whats up. If nothing big, we try
to fix it before monday.
It can take the maximum of 24 hours before a newly added product shows up.
If it does not, we need to investigate. Note that the cache of a running
kde session is not updated client-side until the next login iirc.

I added the new category now here:

We certainly can add a new category = API Documentation QCH Files.
Linking files are possible via "Add url", simply pointing to a file as endpoint.
I'm not sure what needs to be done client-side, so Dan can likely help there.
I just need to know what the category name should be and when to add it.

I'd agree that flatness taken too far becomes unattractive/dull also for me
personally. When comparing Breeze and latest Iphone icons though, I think
our set looks awesomeness, it is so good that i have yet to find something
else that i would stick to and not go back to Breeze after relative short
time, elemantary included. Since its all subjective, I am not sure if
changing some of Breeze would make things better, but leave everyone
unsatisfied in the end, as current Gwenview, K3B fit imho so good with the
rest that starting to change them would rather require a new style
altogether than mixing or going halfway back to something Oxygen-like?
Maybe look forward for this then for Plasma 6?
Personally I find the Breeze icons dope, especially Kontact, Yakuake, K3b and Ark.

Looks wonderful indeed! :)

Will add them to ocs apiserver.
Note that for now those two categories may contain demo imports, which
might change or removed again in the near future, so its mainly for testing
at this point, as we havent also made those categories visible on the

store.falkon.org seems to be operational now.

What if two identical names?

After talking with Dan Leinir, here is another approach:
- Every file can be attached a tag, in this case "plasma-4" and "plasma-5" (or both or none).
- These tags can be set by every developer for their product files themselves
- If Dan does implement looking for the "plasma-5" tag actively set, the themes can stay in the category they are now, but only plasma-5 tagged themes will appear from Plasma 5.16 onwards, which from the end result should be like starting with an empty category.

I agree and therefore looking into a way to achieve the exact same outcome,
but easier implementation and no drawbacks for older versions. Just need to
test to see if its feasable.
Well, we could do many approaches, i think it is important to find something that is the least disturbing, hence having split the categories might not be the best approach.
If we are fine introducing some new method in Plasma 5.16 and keep it backwards compatible for Plasma 5 and also KDE SC 4.x users, then I would rather seek to implement such a method.
It would make use of the tagging system and probably also be best to demonstrate to see and play around with it without actually breaking things or making them irreversible.
That category demonstrates how the not so radicale way would go by moving
one oldest theme to it. This theme should now in 24 hours no longer be
searchable or found via ghns. Imo the other mire radicale way of creating a
total new category would mean much more effort and potentially errors than
this non-destructive, reversible path forward.
The filtering can be done by a db update moving themes older than a certain
date into the new Plasma 4 Theme folder.
The other way would make it impossible for users not on the latest plasma
5.16 then to find moved themes though?
Imo this could be more important than kde4 users not finding their old
themes anymore, but one way or the other it goes when splitting.
Wouldnt be the reverse much safer and could start right away?
That is simply add a category "Plasma 4 Themes" and move old themes there,
so the current category can stay as is, but gets potentially better and

Any update on this?
Apr 20 2019
That I dont know. The chosen url just needs to point to the same IP adress
An example where this would be useful is that a search only brings back relevant results, e.g.:
Just as info, it is also possible for Falkon to be viewed as a subsection (similar to a subreddit):
Apr 19 2019
I added those to ocs:// install protocol, does it work from Falkon side via "Install"?
Apr 18 2019
So adding Falkon Extensions could need a dropdown to choose either Qml or
Sure. How exactly is an extension or theme "installed"? Like if you would
simply download a Falkon theme/extension, what would you manually need to
do to have them enabled in Falkon?
Apr 9 2019
Good ideas, will be clearer for sure.
We are working on it as I write this.
If there is any such "bug url" for store.kde.org on kde infra that we can
point users to, like bugzilla, we can add this information in the sidebar.
Apr 8 2019
We can easily add a new category and make that compatible to replace the
current one. We could also sort all plasma themes newer as a certain update
date into that or leave it empty to totally cold start. I just need to get
an official confirmation whatever is decided to proceed.
Apr 5 2019
Are there older plasma themes from kde4 times that do work in Plasma 5?
Or are all themes before a certain date broken?
Mar 24 2019
Your welcome! If you like we can also remove the "Dock" from "Latte Dock"
main category name.
Done (Variant 2), should be updated in next 24 hours.
Feb 28 2019
For the other category, I have the info that it was internally labelled "Skrooge report template", so this is what was searched and matched some time in the past.
Since then we never changed that, but if nowadays the exact DISPLAY name is used, we can certainly revise that.
Please double-check if internally the client looks for "Skrooge Report Templates" or "Skrooge report template".
Feb 25 2019
We can try the following: We move the items over to the new category and
set new category name to legacy name in the database and ocs-api server.
Then you do not need to have double entries and we can remove old Scrooge
group, since content in new group Alkimia has set legacy name to Scrooge it
can serve both old client and new one from the new category.
Feb 24 2019
So Skrooge is renamed to Alkimia?
Because there is also a second category for Skrooge?
Feb 23 2019
What is the exact name of the category that Alkimia is looking for?
Added Alkimia Online Quotes category:

Due to protection against attack vectors like automated spam and upload
bots, we do not support upload feature over ghns.
Nov 5 2018
I think it might be needed to wait 24 hours to replicate on the api-server.
So if by tomorrow there still is nothing, please ping again.
I matched all categories to the older naming scheme. Should take a bit
before it becomes visible, though you can see its already used by the
Octave worksheet uploaded.
If anything else needs adjustements, just ping here again.
Upload from within programs is not possible due to abuse reasons.

should be set now

Ronald will have a look on monday, as it is vacation day in Germany.
Meanwhile is there any chance for using a modern alternative like RSS and discontinue the legacy RDF?
Just checking some options.

Thanks. Item should have been switched.
If you notice anything at odds, please report here.
what is your user id on opendesktop.org?
Mar 8 2018
I suggest to wait for the actual switch of the main site and see what Haris has done with the WP, as he consolidated a lot of what has been given and then start to change or finetune that and NOT all change it at once again.
Just my 2 cents.
Mar 2 2018
This is actively being worked on as we speak:
store.kde.org database already added an attribute to exclude any item from being shown via GHNS (called ghns_excluded), and we are now looking into making it available via OCS-API so those items are then easily "filterable".
Feb 7 2018
Would further be also likely more consistent with other toggles in the future, like imagined on mobile "wifi crossed out=disabled", etc.
Jan 20 2018
@ronaldv : Is this done?
Jan 4 2018
Yes, I can confirm subcategories are now searchable. I assume it is due to
that we allow multiple categories now for the same type and are able to

What are wallpaper plugins?
Do they need a new seperate GHNS button, in the wallpaper dialog?
Added a new empty category just in case.
Should be fixed now from the backend side, try and see again if it works.

Your welcome! If there are any more issues, just open a new ticket or re-open this one.
Aug 24 2017
I checked and see the categories listed live here:
Isn't it https://autoconfig.kde.org/ocs/providers.xml nowadays (not sure about what is the prefered URL)?
Also, where do you get the error with what request?
Yeah, that could be.
KNS/GHNS unfortunately has the habit to look for a hardcoded category name, so to make it work backwards compatible, I would need to know the exact string each program tries to match and add it as "legacy name" internally.
Aug 23 2017
Since knewstuff is now retired (and from my understanding didnt feature an account management?) the best would be
- ask the authors to create an account and re-publish them.

Good to know, thanks for the info!
Apr 23 2017
As an idea, add a dropdown box (like in the GHNS Wallpapers dialog) to allow choosing a specific category only.
Mar 13 2017
Category has been backported, should be now available.
Marco Martin investigating this.

Imported 3 categories:

Regarding the amount of visible text: More like almost completely unfixed ;)
