Discussion Points

From "Notifications:

  • KNotify is from "Applications" ?
  • SystemBell and Launch Feedback could be in a "System Notifications" group in "Workspace" ?

Where is the boundary in this notifications-related KCMs ?

--

Where does File Association belongs to ? "Applications" behavior?

--

Should "Custom Shortcuts" ("Input Actions") be a Workspace setting? (it is mostly used to launch apps; but it is also used for some intra-apps things)

--

"Screen Edges" seems to be belong to both "Desktop" and "Windows", so it may end up as a top-level module in "Workspace" ....

Usability Discussion

Started after Trever did a quick usability study with a friend: http://markmail.org/message/ods463crzwjc5erm

Current topics

  • Usability studies are needed.
  • We need a formal policy on what goes where, with something similar to the Desktop Menu Spec by freedesktop.org. Otherwise, everyone will be upset when we change things for every request.
  • Tabs are bad
  • Maybe a better UI?
  • Usability studies are needed.
