Description nttkde 2019-10-05 23:14:08 UTC
Discover's Installed apps view is sorted by app rating by default (and apparently from lowest to highest?).
Sorting by rating is good for recommending the best new apps for a user in the other views; but when it comes to the Installed apps list, 
I think it would be more helpful to have Installed apps sorted _by name_.

(Or if there is some reason for sort-by-rating I can't think of it now. Probably users aren't uninstalling their software just because it has got one star from other people?)

Looks like that's what it's trying to do: https://cgit.kde.org/discover.git/tree/discover/discoversettings.kcfg#n6

...But it's not working for some reason.

Dan, could you take a look?

Make sure the installed page is properly sorted by default
