I'm not sure what would be the ideal solution, but the current situation is: it
says "Install on Linux", yet it might or might not install depending on your
system, which is not the impression one gets from the button, the moreso if
it's the icon of an app installer that my system has. The hinter about "You can
also use your distribution's package manager" is also not accurate, as the
package manager might or might not have it either.

It also doesn't give any pointers as to where to go if the above doesn't work,
and being a site under "kde.org" gives the impression of being the "official"
installation source, as it would be for e.g. "binary-factory.kde.org" which
pages like kate's or konsole's point towards.

Perhaps it'd be better to rename the icon "Install on Linux" to "Search in
Discover", since that's what it's actually doing, and the sub-text to rename as
"You might also find it in your distribution's package manager".

I was BTW thinking that all KDE apps had some form of CI pipeline generating
binaries, but turns out it isn't the case, so perhaps a link to the
auto-generated github repository or to the inventory page where the current
source code is located would also help.
