Thanks! Works great, but would it be possible to add the option of having the arrow embedded into the systray rather than as a separate widget? - Jun 16 2012

Hard to tell. For me it's not even present in the widget explorer anymore. plasmapkg -i didn't produce any error messages, but there is a folder in .kde4/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids with the corresponding files. - Jan 31 2011
Really nice plasmoid, and works great!

Just wondering: would it be possible to get it to save the data in a file of its own rather than one of the plasma config-files? It would make transfering data between say a home-computer and a work-computer so much easier!

Failing that, how about an export/import function? - Apr 25 2010

Just upgraded to KDE 4.5.0 and KOSD 0.5, and works great as always.

Even better really since it's now more integrated than it was before.

This is really something that you should consider to move into kdereview for a possible inclusion into kdebase for 4.6 IMO.

Not every program would need to be able to react to multimedia keys but two programs I use regularly could benefit from being able to take Kosd for granted (in a full KDE environment at least): namely Amarok and K3B. Possibly more, but those at least have their own OSD code. It would be great if they could just use your lib so the look and position of the OSD would just be inhertited. - Aug 21 2010

Just wanted to let you know that the plasmoid now runs, which it didn't before.

Just out of curiosity...what was the problem?

I just got a C instead of the temperature though so I changed the code a little to make it work...

I used this in the temp-detection code instead of yours:

sensor=commands.getoutput("nvidia-settings -q [gpu:0]/GPUCoreTemp|grep gpu:0|awk -F'):' '{ print $2 }'");

Of course, that takes it for granted that reading the GPUCoreTemp will always work. - Jan 06 2011

Just wondering...

Would it be possible to change so the locking of activities from within this plasmoid would "follow" the locking of widgets? That is, if plasma is locked then the activities are locked as well. And when plasma is unlocked the activities are unlocked too.

Either that or that this plasmoid remembers the lock-widgets settings. As of version 0.5 the activities are always unlocked upon logging in. - Dec 26 2010
Strange. It should work for me as well then since my version is newer than that.

Hm, new check: now it does work. And I'm not sure what I did to fix it. The only thing I know for certain that changed is that I removed HAL since it was no longer required but that should have no impact on plasma-popups... - Dec 16 2010
So which version of 4.6 are you running? Just to check if the problem goes away when the next update trickles down. - Dec 15 2010
I've been hoping for something like this! Great!

Just one thing though, and I'm not sure if the problem is in your widget or elsewhere.

When I try to use your widget after having logged in, the pop-up is partially hidden beneath the panel (my panel with the systray is at the bottom if it makes a difference). If I remove the widget and re-enable it, that problem is gone. Until the next time I login that is. Using KDE 4.5.86. - Dec 15 2010

Just so you know, the download link for the source to the gtk2-version of 1.8.2 points to a non-existing tarball of the gtk3-version. - Dec 15 2010
That was easy! Thanks! - Jan 05 2010
So, anyway of fixing that save waiting for 1.0.1? I'm completely unable to fix bugs in source-code I'm afraid. - Jan 05 2010
I'm not sure why it doesn't, or what info you need to track it down but I can't get 1.0 (KDE4 version) to compile. Or rather, it's something in style/qtcurve.cpp that errors out. I don't know what's the problem though, but I get a lot of warnings about ambiguous 'else's.

I'm using KDE 4.4 beta2 (earlier versions of qtcurve compiles fine) on openSuse 11.2 (64-bit) with gcc 4.4.1.

- Jan 05 2010
Because when I use a program I practically never use the menus in (amarok for example) it makes no sense to me that the menu is even shown regardless if it's in the application window or in a xbar.

Still, I only came across the problem because I had used the hide-menu bar option before upgrading to a xbar-enabled qtcurve and found out to my great surprise that I couldn't re-enable a menubar again. Well, not until I disabled the hide-menu bar option that is. That particular problem would be a non-issue when the config-option you mentioned is implemented though. - Oct 16 2009
Just noticed that Qtcurve can be compiled with support for the Xbar. No idea how I've managed to miss that before, but great anyway!

Still, I have one problem with that (using Qtcurve 0.69.1 with KDE 4.3.2). If I compile it using that option and keeping the Xbar plasmoid in a panel, the ctrl-alt-m option to show/hide menubars do not work. Absolutely nothing happens when using that key-combo.

I realize both options are experimental (and the xbar even more so considering it requires an additional flag passed to cmake) but I'm confident that will only make it more "urgent" to know of potential problems. - Oct 15 2009

True, but that's because Akregator (all of Kontact really) doesn't use plasma pop-ups at all just yet. That should be fixed when the Kontact 2 (or whatever it will be called) series is released. - Oct 18 2010
Actually, you can make choqok use the icon without patching but you need to do one additional thing.

Export the svg to png, and make sure its dimensions are 22x22. Copy the png to:

In that case, I will try to create an icon-set myself. I'm not very good creating icons either, but I could try to modify the existing monochrome plasma-icon of 4.5 to be suitable for the 5 different icons. No guarantees I will succeed though.

I noticed the current ones are named knemo-networktype-offline.png and so on.

If I create a theme and just name the files with say monochrome instead of monitor like knemo-monochrome-offline.png (and likewise for the other statuses), will knemo notice a new theme is available or will the source have to be modified as well?

- Oct 08 2010
Great little app, but one request: would it be possible to ship an icon-theme that is consistent with the monochrome icons in KDE 4.5.x? Right now knemo looks kinda out of place... - Oct 05 2010

No problem. On another note, I found an icon-theme that would be well, let's call it appropriate for "stealing" the basis of the icons from. Nothing wrong with the theme you're using, but the one I found is better in one aspect: the icons are already monochrome. Or quite a lot of them are at least.

If you haven't seen it, check out

They do need some touching up, mostly (IMO at least) because they need the dark outline your modified icons have but otherwise they can almost be used as-is. If only my patience (and expertice in using Gimp or Krita was better) with adding small details to icons was higher I would do it myself. Actually, I'm gonna try anyway to see how it goes. - Oct 05 2010
Hm, must be a mistake in packing it up since some of the 22x22 apps listed are missing in the archive itself.

The only ones there are amarok, korgac, and konversation.

Great looking theme but I've run into one problem...

I'm using the default version for Plasma 4.5.0 (and KDE 4.5.0...). Now, I'm a heavy user of Kontact and uses the calender quite extensively.

I keep the digital clock in a top-panel. When I click on it, a calendar panel slides down. In the default theme (AIR, but slightly modified by Suse) dates with events are shown in bold in that calendar. With your theme there is no indication of which dates are linked to an event. I can see the events themselves if I let the mouse pointer hover above the date in question though.

Could you please fix that? - Aug 27 2010

Some, I hope, useful hints in how to install the plasmoid (feel free to add them to the README file).

First, and most important, the local and system-wide
instructions are identical.

Systemwide should look like this:

cd /where/you/downloaded_the_archive
tar -xvf 126981-wattson.tar.bz2
cd wattson
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release ../
sudo make install
kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental

Local like this:

cd /where/you/downloaded_the_archive
tar -xvf 126981-wattson.tar.bz2
cd wattson
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --localprefix` -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release ../
make install
kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental

That way it doesn't matter where KDE is installed (say /usr or /opt for example) or whether the directory is called .kde or .kde4.

Restarting plasma should not be necessary (wasn't for me). And in cases when it might be, it should be done like this:

kquitapp plasma-desktop in newer versions, 4.4 at least and possibly even 4.3 (can't remember), rather than kquitapp plasma (which, indeed, is what it should be like in 4.2) - Jul 02 2010

Thanks for the warning! Just out of curiosity though...what kind of side effects? So far the only one I have come across, and that side effect I expected, is the need to find a good color for the font so the text is readable (which I did by alter the qss file so the font color isn't global for all apps). - Jun 21 2010

I don't use the default fonts from system-settings, no.

I use Apple Garamond, 10p size for all system-fonts except the fixed width one which is Droid Sans Mono 10. Anti-alising is enabled, with hinting style set to medium.

Which font-category is yaWP using? I can experiment a bit to see if I can improve things if I just know which one would affect yaWP. - Dec 30 2009
Ah, okay. That certainly explains the problem.

Sorry to bother you with such a small problem...and thanks for a great weather indicator! - Dec 30 2009
I'm sure. I can switch the behavior on or off by just one click in yaWP's preference window so I'd say it's at least a high probability that yaWP is causing it.

Anyway, here are two screenshots of the panel (using kde 4.4 beta2).

The first one is using the compact mode, the other without. Notice the difference in space between yaWP and the device notifier. - Dec 30 2009
I have tried now and so far I can't see a difference. The spacing problem is still there, and I can only be rid of it in two ways:

1. Either use the compact mode.
2. Or switch to showing only the icon in the panel.

As soon as there's a temperature-indicator to the left of the icon, the problem resurfaces. - Dec 28 2009
First things first: I'm using KDE 4.4 (beta2) and the option of enabling this plasmoid in the systray. That works great but I have a request:

Would it be possible to get a panel-layout somewhere inbetween the standard and the compact one?

My problem is that the standard one leaves quite a bit of "empty" space to the left of the temperature reading - which in my opinion is quite jarring/ugly. The compact one, on the other hand, is so compact that it is impossible to see the temperature reading by just a glance (I need to use the tooltip to see it).

What I would like is the standard layout but without the white space at the left. - Dec 26 2009

Just wondering, is the pulseaudio playback (in version 0.8.5) a must-have? That is, will the program run without pulseaudio if compiled properly?

The reason I wonder is that the suse-packages require pulseaudio to be installed, and I'd rather avoid that if possible. So, if it's possible to get it to run without pulseaudio I'll try to compile it myself. Otherwise, could you please consider making the pulseaudio capability optional? - Dec 30 2009
