New Design for KDE Store

Thu May 04, 2017 1:39 pm
Hi there, I really love the Plasma Desktop and the possibility to customize it to my personal taste.
So I am visiting the KDE store very often. Unfortutnately I think the store doesn't look as good as it should and furthermore it feels like nobody took care for it over many years.
The main main hompage kde.org got a facelift recently, maybe this could also happen to the store homepage?

I made a mockup how the start page could look like and tried to give it a similar design to the Plasma desktop with the awesome breeze dark theme.

Please let me know what you think about.

The design would surely be better, but as I see it, mostly there is a lot of junk, I'll tell you better, in my opinion the KDE Store should only be stuff of kde and not stuff like themes for gnome like some themes of icons, Furthermore, everything that is on kde store should be installable via the various Plasma KCM, and this is not the case, because many things are just links to other sites, and if you try to install it through KDE GUIs you often have a problem!

Yes you're completely right this is a very annoything thing. One other point I have to struggle against every time I try to install new stuff is that not all themes appear correctly in the kcm becuase the file hierarchy of the package is different like it was expected (mostly one additional folder). Someone should really get trough this big mess and clean it up.

These 3 have recently been posted on kde store but are not for kde
I asked the person who posted Nitrux White to get information, he explained to me that he posted it only on Gnome look so he does not know how it ended up at kde store, i think it's a bug!

Sounds reasonable for me but should we post a bug about it then? And if so, where is the right place for it?

I made another mockup how the details view could look like:
