Description Kishore Gopalakrishnan 2019-05-23 08:15:45 UTC
If we right-click on the 'Printers' systray item, we have two options which are both named 'Configure Printers'. One of them is for the plasmoid, and the other is for the systemwide KCM. They should be renamed, since the only way to currently distinguish between them is the icon.

Similar bugs, but for other plasmoids: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=407561 https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=407560
Comment 2 Nate Graham 2019-05-24 20:42:04 UTC
Yet another case of a config window with only one thing in it, and a KCM that has all the real options. I think we should delete the config window and put the single UI choice into the widget's own UI, or its context menu.

One of the last cases of this.

[applet] Remove config dialog and put options in Hamburger menu

This commit deletes the applet's config dialog and puts its three
mutually-exclusive options for what to show into the applet's hamburger
menu, exactly like how the Disks & Devices applet does it. This allows
removing the action to show the applet's config dialog, which means
there is now only a single "configure" action and it opens the KCM. The
net result is a UI that is cleaner, less confusing, and more consistent,
with the options made more discoverable.
