Plasma 4 Extensions by jmthomas 54 comments

I had the same problem when I upgraded to KDE 4.5 on Mandriva 2010.1. I got it to work by compiling the latest source code from the above link, but it's buggy. It doesn't resize right and if you change any settings all the icons disappear, but it's better than nothing. Hopefully someone will pick up development again, this is my most-used Plasmoid.

For anyone who tries to build from source, I had to make the following changes to quickaccess.cpp to get it to compile:

Line 73: Missing closing parenthesis
Plasma::ToolTipManager::self()->registerWidget(this ;
vs
Plasma::ToolTipManager::self()->registerWidget(this) ;

Line 162: Missing parentheses
uiAppearance.iconSizeCombo->setCurrentIndex(uiAppearance.iconSizeCombo->findText(QString::number m_settings->iconSize()))
vs
uiAppearance.iconSizeCombo->setCurrentIndex(uiAppearance.iconSizeCombo->findText(QString::number (m_settings->iconSize())))


If anyone wants to try my precompiled binary I put it up here: http://www.softcom.net/users/nye/knormal/quickaccess_mdv2010.1_0.9b.tar.gz. I have no idea how or if it will work on other distros. - Aug 27 2010
