Bug ID: 390266
Summary: Krunner window should be wider, doesn't make use of
screen width
Product: krunner
Version: unspecified
Platform: Other
OS: Linux
Status: UNCONFIRMED
Severity: normal
Priority: NOR
Component: general
Assignee: ***@privat.broulik.de
Reporter: ***@web.de
Target Milestone: ---

Krunner cuts off the text of elements shown in the results list if their text
is too long. At the same time the krunner window is smaller than the screen
size allows. Increasing the krunner window width makes more effective use of
the available screen real estate, shows more text, making it easier to identify
the correct result.

The krunner window width should be a percentage of the screen size close to
100%. Since krunner appears on top of other Windows and disappears after you
stop using it, it can take as much screen space as it wants.

As a workaround i have increased the krunner window width using a window rule
with much success.

People already complain that panels and menus in Plasma are too big and take up
too much of their screen. Maybe we could make KRunner's width adjustable,
within sane minimum and maximum values.

Yes, adjustable width is better than changing the default. Although this
feature will probably take a lot longer to complete than just changing the
default width number.
Searching for bugs there don't seem to be any bug reports complaining that
specifically krunner is too large. Since krunner is not constantly visible it
doesnt really take away from your screen space, unlike the taskbar.
