Nice to see a KDE based Thinkpad tool :-) Could you eleborate what existing configurations it uses? I have thinkfan run, but does not seem to use its coniguration. Is there any chance you could make it compatible with TLP -> http://linrunner.de/en/tlp/docs/tlp-linux-advanced-power-management.html ?
and turn it into a KCM? - Jul 10 2012

Hey, Weser-Ems-Transport-Provider is currently broken. Every stop is reported as being ambigious or just showing nothing after being selected. I believe it may have something to do with the fact they are now proving realtime-information for public transport in Bremen. Example for a station not working is "Bremen Domsheide". - Feb 15 2012
There is a crash related to public transport

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=258961 - Dec 06 2010
- Did you ever try to implement mobilitaetsverbund.de? It is only local for avaria, but nice, because it provides real time information for buses.

- How about a page on KDE-userbase or Techbase for collecting possible providers, if they are implementedB or why it is not possible? There are main train and public transport freaks out in the world. Having a resource where they could put that informations easier might be useful.
- Mar 07 2010
I have not tested it in the past months, but in the past the DB did not have all tram and bus stops. They also tend to do not update or do it later, if there are any changes. - Feb 08 2010
Good to see so much improvments :-)

Small bug: autocompletion does not work with Fahrplaner.de (Niedersachsen/ Bremen) - Feb 07 2010
Quote:

I dont't know if bugs.kde.org works with stuff in playground..

I think this depends if you want yourself added to bugs.kde.org. Appart from that I think public transport is already very usable. I installed it via a sidux repository. If not in bugs.kde.org, you should add some contact possiblity for those who do not know about this being published here. I think the basic functionality, appart from Knewstuff-integration, is there. So it would be really worthy to release, so that others can give feedback or even contribute.
Quote:

- It would be great if there could be tabs for different stops/ providers monitored at the same time.
Quote:

Hm.. isn't this the same as the previous one?

No, the first one is meant for the usecase that you want to monitor say 2-3 stop which are around the corner and just show them in one view. The other one would be useful for stops who are further appart and should not appear in one view, but easily accessible.
Quote:

- If there is only one line shown, "minutes" should be replaced with the minutes-sign " ' ".
Quote:

I'm not sure if everyone would understand that sign (in every country). I could make it manually configurable through the config files. I think this would be a 'micro'-setting which I don't want to add to the config dialog. The info can also show "XX hour(s)", hm.. is there a sign for hours? Maybe the best option would be to automatically replace "minute"/"hour" with "min."/"h.", when the column is smaller than some value.
may be this is something which should be configurable centrally in Systemsettings-Localisation-Time?

- It should be possibe to adjust the font size too.
[quote]
The font size is somehow adjustable through KDE's global font size settings. I would say that's enough.. Do you have a use case for that? Maybe an option to display everything "very big" would eliminate the need for that option. "Very big", to use the applet as some big display panel.

Usecase: There are so many different Plasmoids out there now. The information there is more or less important. I like the possiblity to adjust plasmoids individually.

Quote:

Providing the functionality to KRunner is a great idea!

There is allready a competing plasmoid providing this http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Transport?content=117804 , but I would prefer both functionalities integrated in one. I would also prefer a more detailed search, using via stations, selecting the different types of trains and so on.

Quote:
That's somewhat more complicated, than I currently have time. Maybe later..

I understand. If can not program, but if there is any research needed, if may be able to help.

Thanks for all your answers. Meanwhile I discovered another bug: When you set the maxium departures shown, the plasmoid seems to count the departures which are filtered too, so that there are not so many departures shown. - Jan 06 2010
It would be great, if it would be possible to report bugs/ wishes via bugs.kde.org

Until then, here a list:
- with db.com sometimes it is shown that a train has a delay for more then 24 hours, which is definitely not the case.
- It would be great, if it would be possible to ex/include by line number which departures are shown.
- It would be great, if it would be possible to monitor more than one stop at once in one view
- It would be great if there could be tabs for different stops/ providers monitored at the same time.
- If there is only one line shown, "minutes" should be replaced with the minutes-sign " ' ".
- It should be possible to adjust the collumns size
- It should be possibe to adjust the font size too.
- It would be very useful, if it would be possible not only to monitor a stop, but to search for connections and also provide this functionality to Krunner.
- It would be useful, if the widget would provide access to maps of the surroundings (via Google-Maps or Openstreetmap) or even station maps (Deutsche Bahn and may be others offer this).
- It would be useful, if the widget provided the information about a certain train (stops and when) and allow to monitor a single train and give a notification, if this train is going to be late. - Jan 03 2010
This plasmoid is really great, I have been waiting for that.

Car Pooling

It would be nice to integrate car pooling into the widget in a way, that one can monitor requests/ offers for a certain route in a certain time. Both providers have a European wide database. - Jan 03 2010

I have been waiting for this for quite a while.

Some suggestions for improvements:
- I do not need an extra visible plasmoid, I would just like to have the notifications showing up in the KDE notifications area
- It may be worth having a look at the official Facebook toolbar for Firefox. It has also notifications integrated and does them quite well. You can configure exactly what you want to be notfied about.
https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/3794/

- There is no icon showing in the notifications via the KDE notification system.
- Would be cool if pictures would be shown in notifications and if links would be previewable.
- It would also be nice if "See all your notications" would not open a browser. Instead of that the notifications could be shown within the plasmoid.
- Would be cool if there would be a kind of filter "Do not show notications of Person/Page/Discussion" - Sep 01 2010

I think your approach is something which is more useful for me in daily use. But still, wouldn't it be useful to combine the functionality of both plasmoids? I would rather prefer a feature rich "travel" plasmoid which can be configured to do different things than finally having 20 of them and having to find out which one supports what. :-)

Another wish: Support for car polling via mitfahrgelegenheit.de and mitfahrzentrale.de (both are european wide and have pages in different languages) - Jan 02 2010

Hi,

SMS integration into KDE is a really good thing. There are quite a few of these apps on KDE-Apps. Unfortunately most of these only support a few services. Your app seems bigger. May be you could win the other devs for a joint SMS-app, which
- uses the KDE-adressbook / Akonadi as a resource for the mobile no
- allows to integrate new services via the KDENEWSTUFF-API
The later would be very, very useful.
Personally I would be happy to see:
Skype-SMS, http://www.sloono.de/ (SMS-Service for Germany and Switzerland), API is here: http://www.sloono.de/API/ and SMS3000 (a good German service http://sms3000.de/) integrated. - Oct 20 2009

Yes, really nice. I do not now if possible, but notifications about successfull upgraded plugins, plugin updates available and for notifications provided by the Facebook and Boost Facebook-plugin would be cool to. May be this can be done by: Some addons provide Growl-support (notifications originally for mac), may be you can tap into this. - Jun 12 2009

Hey, goog that this exits. It should be full part of KDE. Unfortunately there is a very annoying bug. kio-ftps complains about self signed server certificates without allowing to accept them permanently (like the rest of KDE does). Any chance for a fix soon? - Jun 09 2009
