Splash Screen (KSplash)

Goal

The splash should hide visual noise during loading of the workspace from the user and shorten the experienced time until the desktop is up. This process should be visually seamless without jumping background images, smoothly blending from the login manager disappearing until the workspace is loaded and usable.

Epics

  • Look and Feel Package: QML bits are shared here
  • Desktop elegance: Splash is an important part of first impression
  • Session management process: splash as part of the login process

Integration Story

The splash screen is brought up by the login manager. It loads QML files from the Look and Feel package to provide visual coherence. Once the desktop is loaded, the splashscreen disappears.

Porting status

KSplashQML is ported to Qt5 and fully functional with its default theme. A basic port of the classic KSplashX to QML is on reviewboard.

Overall KSplashQML needs to be integrated with the login manager, and its QML bits need moving into the L&F package.

Roadmap

  • Merge patch (ongoing right now)
  • until 15 November:
    • move QML bits into L&F package
    • investigate and draft plan with SDDM developers
  • until end November
    • implement changes in SDDM
  • Review and iterate
