Description Lukas Sabota 2019-03-09 14:59:00 UTC
SUMMARY When searching "logout" in the Application Launcher (at least in English), the "Desktop Session" kcm module is ranked higher than the "Logout" function. I imagine most users will more frequently want to log out of plasma when typing "plasma" before adjusting their desktop session settings. I'm not sure the details of how the search results for application launcher are ranked, but for usability reasons it would make sense to rank "logout" (which is an exact match) over "Desktop Session" STEPS TO REPRODUCE 1. Use English langauge (en_US in my case; haven't tried others) 2. Click the application launcher (or press the hotkey) 3. Type "logout" OBSERVED RESULT The first result is "Desktop Session" kcm session. The second result is "Logout". EXPECTED RESULT I'd expect the exact match and likely always more frequently used "logout" to be the first result. SOFTWARE/OS VERSIONS Operating System: Arch Linux KDE Plasma Version: 5.15.2 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.55.0 Qt Version: 5.12.1 ADDITIONAL INFORMATION This is a minor usability improvement

Minor typo in bug report (and I don't see an edit function). Second sentence should be: "I imagine most users will more frequently want to log out of plasma when typing "logout" before adjusting their desktop session settings."

Confirmed in Kickoff. This doesn't happen in KRunner though, oddly enough.

Rank Kickoff desktopsessions search results over services Summary: Users more frequently want to log out rather than change desktop session settings. Also makes it consistent with KRunner. Test Plan: Open Kickoff and search for "logout".
