TARDIS

Plasma 4 Extensions by fatg3rman 32 comments

I'm using Kubuntu Quantal (12.10) with KDE 4.9.95 (4.10 RC1), maybe there is something weird in my configuration (?)

Regarding how to deal with external drives, maybe you could borrow some code from kup, the way kup handles it is amazing (http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/Kup+Backup+System?content=147465)

BTW, Tardis has a lot of potential, I wonder if there is a place to see a roadmap and/or to make feature requests... - Dec 31 2012

It seems that new version doesn't like stats.log missing in ~/.tardis (thanks plasmoidviewer!)

I just created a dummy empty stats.log file and this solved the issue

I also realized of the problem with existing /tmp/tardispipe file, and wondering whether this could be workaround somehow as well... - Dec 31 2012

Congratulations for the new version!

I tried to update to the new version but unfortunately I didn't get it to run, it seems there is some issue and the plasmoid is not initialized correctly. If I achieve to know about the problem, I'll post it here...

On the other hand, I realized that the cron job tries to find and run TARDIS.pl in a wrong path (at least in my case): /usr/share/kde4/apps/plasma/plasmoids instead of ~/.kde/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids - Dec 31 2012

very nice widget/application/concept/thing! I would recommend it to be in section KDE Archiving/Backup too, as it may be difficult to find.

btw, wondering if tardis deals with backups that are done in an external drive and at the time of scheduled snapshot the drive is not connected...

oxygen-transparent

QtCurve by HugoPereira 546 comments

Hi,

Oxygen-transparent is great and I simply love it, but I realized that some apps (kile, digikam, rocs, maybe others) doesn't show icons when using the transparent version compared to the regular oxygen.

It happened the same to me with source code and with packages from this repository:

https://launchpad.net/~hrvojes/+archive/kde-goodies

Somebody has filled an apparently unrelated bug here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rocs/+bug/1012739

But I really think that his issues are also related to the problem I'm describing. I'm linking the two things to figure this out...

I'd love to have icons back and I'd love to help in testing to resolve the bug.

Many thanks in advance! - Jul 08 2012

Hi,

No luck here, my external drive (usb) is not detected in the configuration screen. The filesystem is ext4. I also tried with a pendrive and did not work either.

They work perfectly with other backup systems like luckybackup and backintime.

Is there any log where I could take a look to know what's going on? - Jan 04 2012

Yes, I recognize this should be done at some point, but I must confess that I don't know how yet and I am pretty busy currently, so I cannot tell when... In the meantime I'll change the color to default, so at least it's not ugly when using light plasma themes

If I find the time, I'll try to do what you asked. And eventually also combine 'my little toy' with the menubar and the kwinbuttons applets. But this can take a long while, hopefully not too long... - Aug 01 2011

Thanks for telling. Could you please add an informative backtrace of the plasma-desktop crash?

Once we look at that we can try to get where the actual problem is, surely in Active Application, but might be also possible in Plasma itself, hopefully not. - Jul 21 2011

maybe it would be better to use a panel separator to do the job while keeping lay->setContentsMargins(5, 0, 5, 0); but I also wanted this default behavior for the people that doesn't know/want to tweak little things. I may reconsider if most of the people dislikes this default.

anyways, if you really want to change this, just modify lay->setContentsMargins(15, 0, 5, 0); to lay->setContentsMargins(5, 0, 5, 0); in activeapp.cpp - May 28 2011

This I made on purpose, because I wanted to associate the active application (icon and label) better to the menubar, so I kept here the same separation, but I also wanted to easily distinguish from the launcher, so I put a bigger separation there - May 28 2011

oxygen-transparent

QtCurve by HugoPereira 546 comments

I'm experiencing some small issues using transparency in kde. This I don't think it's a problem from oxygen-transparent but from the fact that some kde developers didn't try their applications when transparency is enabled.

One issue is that quite often there is no blur effect under some text (this happens in most of the kde applications, e.g. kate, kontact, dolphin, rekonq...).

Another one is that there are still small parts of some applications that are not transparent (e.g. arrows to move between tabs in rekonq and choqok).

In the first case, the usability is reduced because for instance it's difficult to read the text when you have some more text below (from other window below or from some widget)

In the second case, the application looks a bit ugly.

I wonder if there is a way of solving this issues. I guess it would imply that developers test their applications with oxygen-transparent too, to be aware of these small but important issues - May 11 2011

Forget about this, it's working properly. my system is updating packages automatically, so it surely updated the driver in between. Sorry about that... - May 10 2011
oxygen-transparent

QtCurve by HugoPereira 546 comments

It seems there is a regression when using oxygen-transparent (transparency different than 0%) so the blur desktop effect stops working (it comes back when transparency is set to 0%).

Please take a look at the bug:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=272899

It has been a bit difficult for me to figure out what was the reason (either the nouveau driver, or some bug in kde) until I've tried removing the transparency completely. - May 10 2011
