Bug ID: 391701
Summary: Searching for a program needs the whole package name
Product: Discover
Version: 5.12.3
Platform: Manjaro
OS: Linux
Status: UNCONFIRMED
Severity: normal
Priority: NOR
Component: discover
Assignee: ***@kde.org
Reporter: ***@gmail.com
Target Milestone: ---

I was looking for Wayland in Discover but got no answer. Even Plasma-Wayland
gave nothing. Only Plasma-Wayland-session showed what I was looking for.
It would be nice if the search became more intelligent and as a result shows
everything matching the search item, so it would be more like a filter than a
search.

Discover isn't a package manager, it's an app store. It doesn't show packages,
only pieces of software that have AppStream information. What does
`appstreamcli search wayland` show?

Maybe the bug here is that plasma should export better appstream information?

That certainly couldn't hurt. I'm not sure we can keep people from thinking of
Discover as a general purpose "Find all kinds of things to install" app, which
means we need to get AppStream information for more of the commonly-installed
things (NVIDIA drivers too, perhaps?).

You can certainly install all kinds of things (e.g. kate snippets, apps and
wallpapers).

So from my point of view: yes, plasma should come with proper appstream
information and yes, lots of stuff need metadata.
Or their own backend, which for drivers specifically seems like it's the way to
go.

I'm not sure how to turn this bug report into an action item though.

Maybe to ship al AppStream file for the Plasma Wayland session with
plasma-desktop so packagers can package it?

If it was my decision, I'd suggest having an appstream entry for plasma desktop
at bulk explaining it's for X11 and Wayland.
