I think that is a good idea. If not that, at least give us the option of tweaking things. For me, Firefox is the first option I get. Why is it different for you? Who knows? If I type sleep (looking for the go to sleep command) it doesn’t appear until the 4th item on the list. Even though I use that command every day, it never gets closer to the top. I would at least like to go in there and force it to the top.
+1 from me. I’d say that it’d be awesome to have a manual priority override in the system settings; having written a KRunner plugin before, I know that plugins are allowed to set the priority of their contents; however, it should be fairly obvious that applications come before documents for most people IMO.
We currently have code in place that puts often launched results higher. Having the same for categories seems reasonable. I currently work on unifying the different models we have for the KRunner sorting.
Once that is done, we have a central place to implement such features that gets used by KRunner and kicker/kickoff.
