### Formatting header - "Chapter X" + Chapter Title

Hi everyone.

I am hoping to get some much needed advice here. I would like to format my header of a book according to the standards of my publisher. On the left book page I would like to have the chapter number and on the right book page the chapter title.
I am using TeXstudio and Komascript.

This is what I got so far:


What I want it to look like:

-On the left side of the book I would like to have the chapter number (format "Chapter 1") and on the right book page I would like to have the chapter title (without the word "chapter" or so in front).
-The header needs to be centered.
-On the first page of a chapter, there should be no header
-On those pages that do not belong to a chapter (table of content, glossary, etc), the title should be on both pages (e.g. "Table of content" on the left and right book page).

Anyone any ideas? I appreciate any help.
Thank you.

Hi buddy,

cross-posts with a link to the related discussion are no problem, don't worry.

As you posted there in German: I gladly invite you to join our German partner site TeXwelt. Have a look around there, perhaps you like it. Many very experienced LaTeX friends are already there. There we go beyond the scope of a classical forum: while we provide user support for LaTeX, we use that knowhow to build a solution database, in German language, making using LaTeX easier.
