Description Maximilian Trummer 2018-06-22 18:58:13 UTC
I recently installed Tumbleweed with snapshot 20180618 and the KDE pattern from the DVD image. After install, Gwenview was not installed however and I certainly didn't deselect it during install.
Comment 1 Andreas Stieger 2018-06-22 19:04:56 UTC
The KDE pattern did not recommend gwenview. The KDE imaging pattern did. 
And as of very recently the KDE pattern no longer recommends the KDE imaging pattern.

Like I mentioned on IRC, I think that viewers for very common file formats like .jpg (Gwenview) and .pdf (Okular) should be installed by default on a desktop environment like KDE Plasma.

What about splitting those viewers off into a new package like "kde_viewers"?

Opening JPG and PDF is something most people do on their desktops I imagine, while not quite as many people have a scanner (Skanlite) or a camera (DigiKam), so not installing *those* by default does make sense imo.

Assignint to the KDE-pattern maintainer

This was actually not obvious - kde_imaging was pulled in via a supplements on packageand(kde:imaging) patterns, so it was not directly visible.

The missing packages are now part of the kde pattern.
