Gwenview missing in Tumbleweed 20180618 KDE pattern
Last modified: 2018-06-25 21:20:05 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.
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.

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.
