I dont mind at all, i feel honored.

although i do a lot of advocating for kde and kde apps, and even being a kubuntu ninja and do a lot of packages, i dont develop anything for kde (not yet anyway), so since im not a developer i dont have a planetkde account :( feel free to advertise this review there :) - Mar 19 2011
I took the liberty of writing a review about Veromix and how it works (in english).

http://padoca.wordpress.com/2011/03/18/kmix-veromix-qml-and-other-stories/

Enjoy :) - Mar 18 2011
tks for the update nik, this plasmoid rocks even more with each update :) and also tks you for implementing a long time wish of mine (the increment in sound above 100%) :)

now, can you pls fix the bug #39? (cant change plasmoid settings) :)

anyway, great release :D looking forward for 10.1 and beyond :)

keep up the good work - Mar 12 2011
Kudos to you, 0.9 is shaping up to be a great release, loved the new additions.

still some glitches with the new player interface, sometimes the cover shows when paused but goes back to amarok logo when playing (amarok git) and some musics have wrong times, but overall this is a impressive release.

tabs are crashing the app, so i couldnt test that, but this is normal with new code. already a winner, looking forward for more stuff :D

keep up the good work, amazing so far :) - Dec 03 2010
im only able to do it with the gnome volume control, pavucontrol doesnt appear to have that feature, maybe its gnome only?

best regards - Nov 19 2010
AFAIK, you would need to go to #kde or #kde-devel in freenode and talk to the devs, to see how you could submit this to kde upstream, prolly it would go to the playground repo first, but i think this would be a very useful addition to main KDE :)

best regards :)

ps, im still missing the ability to up the volume above 100% (like gnome volume), besides that im happy as a clam :D - Nov 19 2010
this last version is even better then the previous one, im impressed, keep up the good work.

it would be awesome if you could submit this to the 4.6 release.

best regards - Nov 19 2010
kudos for such a nice app, already a fan

some things i would like to see implemented.

1 - like anyone already asked, ability to control input devices too

2 - ability to control master volume with the mouse scroll by overing it over the systray icon (ala kmix)

3 - ability to turn the master volume above 100% (like gnome applet)

4 - ability to control play/pause/<<>> in amarok and other players (i know this isnt controled by pulse, but it would be a awesome feature) like ubuntu is doing for the volume control of upcoming 10.10.

hope to see some of this implemented, tks again for such a nice plasmoid - Sep 08 2010

Hi, thanks for your swift answer..

ill test this new version asap.
one other thing, could you please append the version number to the download file. i do packages for (k)ubuntu and its very hard to send them upstream when the original file doesnt have a version number.

best regards and keep up the good work - Mar 03 2010
Very nice script and work, i hope you can keep on enhancing it.

it works very well in playlist mode, but if i change the settings to one track only i get this error:

There was an error in the Intelligent Playlist plugin!

Error: TypeError: Result of expression 'sim.setArtist' [undefined] is not a function.
Error Name: TypeError
Message: Result of expression 'sim.setArtist' [undefined] is not a function.

besides that it works like a charm :)

very nice indeed, 0.9.9 is very beautiful and useful but it as a bug so far, if the name of the album or song is too big, the font exceeds the size of the box, besides that its a charm to behold :)

now the wishes.

1 - better integration with amarok (like others said, maybe a scripted plasmoid).

2 - ability to use the query to create playlists (for ex, show me all my sting favourite tracks and click on a "add" button to add those tracks to the playlist.

best regards and keep up the good work, first fan ;) - Apr 29 2009

since last week (latest svn), k3b can't recognize any media, it shows my device in k3b, it even reads the media info, but when i send any command (format media, burn disk, etc), the dialog asks for a writable media and just stay there.

any help appreciated.

one more thing, an option to enable a default background image (local) when the internet connection is down, so it doesnt stay with a black background.

seeya - Apr 03 2009
Great app, i just did a jaunty .deb for both wally and wally plasmoid, should be in my PPA tomorrow (im gonna warn as soon as i make it available).

now for wishlist:

1 - a reload option in the wally menu, since im behind a proxy at work, sometimes the proxy crashes and wally gets stuck.. i know i could do a next photo, but a reload would be great..

2 - is there any way to activate wallyplugin for kde4 without restarting plasma? i have 4 activities (kinda virtual desktops) and if i add wallyplugin i have to kill plasma AND wally in order for the picture to show up the first time).

3 - the ability to see preview/thumbnail of the next photo would be great.

4 - finally, maybe you could integrate this with the kde4 screen saver since it allows plasmoids also, so i could leave it displaying pictures when im away.

anyway, great app :) a fan already.

tried that already.. actually i tried everything i could think off. doing a kquitapp plasma, relog, no lock/ with lock.
no good, always disappears after a logout.

btw, im translating the .po to brazilian, gonna send it to you ASAP. - Feb 24 2009
hi/2 you :)

With 0.9.2 the bug i talked earlier (data isnt updated after first update) is gone. ONE DOWN :)

Now, one remains for me.

The plasmoid still doesnt "stick" to the desktop after a restart (login/logout), i still need to add it every time i relog :(

I tried creating a new user with a fresh .kde just in order to test this behaviour.. still the same... any ideas?

Its the only plasmoid that behaves like this, both simple weather and yaWP "stick".

kubuntu 8.10 - kde 4.2

best regards
- Feb 24 2009
let me be more precise about but 2.

i select a city, say BRXX0217.
if i clean the plasmoid (AKA no info whatsoever), i get the updated info from the site.
if then, i just wait for new weather info, although the plasmoid conects it never shows me the updated info from the site, just the original first info downloaded. this occurs with every XML you have. Like i said yaWP also has this problem, BUT the simple weather forecast works (with the updates).

Im suspecting that both you and yaWP use the same data engine that is possibly broken :(

Kubuntu 8.10 with KDE 4.2.

Very VERY nice plasmoid, my favorite weather plasmoid.

But i have 2 problems.

1 - The plasmoid doesnt "stick" :P whenever i restart kde4 , the plasmoid is gone and i have to add it again to the desktop.

2 - this problem also occurs with yaWP, after the initial update from a city, the data stays the same, like its stuck, and although the update occurs, the data remains the same, all day long and a week now. if i go to the site in a browser, same city, i can see the weather info was updated. Like i said, yawp also is showing this behviour.

PLEASE HELP :(

I think the best way would be:

if over scrollbar maintain the behaviour it has now.

only one more config (change song/change volume) if over buttons (or cover)

OR

change volume over cover, change tracks over buttons and change position over scrollbar.

brest regards - Feb 09 2009
Hi and thanks for the quick answer.

1 - I didnt knew amarok devs didnt provide a dbus call for ratings... maybe you could speak to them about that, im using amarok 2.1 svn and they are adding a lot of stuff.

2- GREAT :)

3 - By theme i mean for example the way the cover is shown (could have some other graphics changing the cover to a LP or cd with plastic cover, etc etc), also being able to change the icons would be nice. it depends on what you what thinking of doing with playwolf:)

4 - a new feaure: ability to love/hate last.fm tracks on-the-fly from playwolf (i know amarok does that for the drop down menu over the amarok systray icon) but...

5 - finally, some track info on the click over info for tracks depending on track type would be nice (maybe even connect with last.fm info?)

best regards and keep up the good work. favorite plasmoid for sure :) - Feb 09 2009
hi giulio, since you said in the header we can ask features, here goes :D

1 - ability to change the stars from a songs directly from playwolf (like amaroker did).

2 - ability to choose between changing song position or sound volume when we scroll the mouse over the plasmoid (also ala amaroker).

3 - Finally, themed plasmoid ;)

Anyway, im already a fan of playwolf.
Keep up the good work, you are rockin' :) - Feb 08 2009

hi rockman, could you please update thumb? its not compiling anymore with kde 4.2 :( it would be awesome if you could talk to the kde guys to merge it upstream for kde 4.3.
the only missing feature for me would be a dragon backend besides mplayer, so it could be integrated with kde without the need of a external player/encoder.
