I just downloaded the plasmoid and tried it. But it runs horrible slow and causes 100% cpuload.

I guess it is because I run kde without desktop effects/composite, but really 100% cpuload is too mutch

is there no other way to speed it up?

Hi ibuscher,

give the new version a try! I improved the performance regarding "custom color settings" and "transparency" a lot...

...I hope you are lucky :-)

On my laptop I set the Matrix speed to "very slow" (using the configuration menu).

As result I get a perceived cpu load of pretty much 0% ;-)

When resizing a plasmoid, it doesn't adjust to new plasmoid size. This is probably just because of incompletion of plasmoid, I assume.

Secondly, if plasmoid is reloaded, it doesn't show anything, leaving plasmoid window completely empty.

Hi mreloads,

@resizing: are you sure, that matrix plasmoid V.02 is running?

If so - the matrix should adjust to new plasmoid size a moment later... (not?)

If not, try to restart KDE so that changes between V.01/V.02 could take place.

@reloading: that's right! I'll try to fix that in the following release :-)

Oh, right. I was using v0.1. Updated, now it works very well.

It would be interesting to see how this will evolve (assuming it will) and which direction development could take.

I was thinking of making a wallpaper plugin for the matrix as well. But never got around to it.


Still, nice work.

This says it is GPL but where is the source?

Report

Hi tbaher,

well, this program is a Plasmoid Script! Therefore the source code is included in the package automatically (e.g. JavaScript-Code).

So, if you want the source code, just extract the package and there it is ;-)

Hi Schiwi,

I can confirm that - the same happened to me (KDE 4.4). Thanks for this hint! I'll try to fix that before the next release...

Fortunately there are no settings to do till now ;-)

Any chance of creating a wallpaper plugin of this?
That would be totally epic!

Hi Znurre,

what do you mean with wallpaper plugin?

Are you thinking of a background image (behind the characters of the matrix)?
