Chances are they've changed some internal aspect of the kwin API without telling anyone.

I'm very busy at the moment, but remind me constantly (you can see my email at the top of any of the source files) and I'll get round to it.

Alternately you can possibly post on the kwin bugzilla page saying "you've broken this plugin". It's a bit rude, but I think technically valid. KDE Libs isn't allowed to break compatibility within a 4.x series. - Jan 05 2012
Appears to be a Kubuntu packaging bug.
I'm on Kubuntu too. Will report it - Sep 11 2011
Partly my fault.

Try this version
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/scratch/davidedmundson/nightmode

Let me know if it fixes it/is still broken. - Sep 11 2011
I updated my personal website, and forgot to update everything that links to it.

Sorry! Fixed now. - Jan 17 2011
There is a binary incompatibility. i.e the code stays the same, but it needs to be compiled again against KDE4.5 - Sep 15 2010
Aww. Thanks :)

- Sep 04 2010
Edit: sorry misread your first comment.

the kwineffects1 vs 1a is the reason the debian package doesn't work.

the deb package needs rebuilding against the newer lib. I hate building packages, and have no idea how to fix it. Pester srog, he's got the skills. - Sep 04 2010
It appears more likely to me that you don't have kdebase-workspace-dev installed.

pro tip: any error about "foobar.h" when compiling probably means you're missing a "-dev" package (which contains the header files needed for compilation but not for running)

"apt-file search foobar.h" is quite good for telling you which ones. - Sep 04 2010
Doing these features is a lot more work, kwin has some conveneience functions for setting brightness and saturation. For colour shifting I'd have to do some actual work.

I've got a few projects on the go at the moment, but I'll try and at least have a go - any advice/hints/help from anyone would be appreciated. - Jun 11 2010
If you're on Ubuntu, just follow the ubuntu package links.

Otherwise:

download source
extract

run the following

cd nightmode
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr
make
sudo make install - May 23 2010
Thanks ever so much. I hate packaging, and this will make it much more accessible.

Any chance you could build up version 0.2. The build should all be the same, except your patch isn't needed.
- Apr 29 2010
That's awesome!

I've implemented it into 0.2, and will push it on here tonight.

Thanks again! - Apr 27 2010
If you can draw or find me an icon I'll be happy to use it.

I'll also happily link to any packages that anyone makes. - Apr 26 2010

My fault, try now. - Dec 29 2010
The Exec line supports the following:
http://standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/latest/ar01s06.html

This may well be different from the Gnome equivalent, as the two file managers get their service menus from different files which store data in different ways.

I haven't worked on this program in a while, I'll try and at least find time to fix the icon issue. - Aug 24 2010
Seems to work now. - Feb 14 2010
Sweet. At that point, it's not my fault :-)

KDE4.4 comes out tomorrow(?) hoepfully someone wil release the python-bindings too.

(also maybe submit a bug report to the kubuntu guys that kde4.4 should 'conflict' with python-kde4.3 ?) - Feb 02 2010
Bindings/Library conflict sounds likely. Try another pykde4 app (like usb-creator-kde, or jockey-kde) and see what happens then.

As for KCM-ing. I'm not sure, it's not really a setting, and as such is nice to be stand-alone. I'm not disagreeing either, I'll get the opinion of a few more people and go with the majority.

Traditionally python in KCM was tricky, not sure if that's still the case. - Feb 01 2010
Slightly late.. but:

Debian packages are available for the new version of kservicemenueditor (0.2)

I've written PPA details on my site.

http://www.sharpley.org.uk/page/software/servicemenu

Please report back (even if just to say it works)

I'll update this page shortly. - Jan 31 2010
Not yet. I stopped doing any work on this because I didn't get that much interest back.

As you've asked I'll go investigate trying to make one :-). I don't (currently) know how to package a python app, but I'll take a look for you. - Nov 20 2009
Fixed in SVN. It now runs that command on load and parses the result. - Jul 12 2008

If so, go right ahead, I'll happily help with anything. My email address is in the code. - Jan 08 2011
Fixed it. I rearranged my personal site, and forgot about everything that links to it. Thanks.

I'd be happy for other projects to use the code. Feel free to suggest it to them.

I really don't have time to do any work on here right now. I'm busy helping out with KTelepathy, and I'm moving house/job too.

Given it's only had ~25 downloads, it's not one of my more important projects to maintain.

Sorry. - Aug 19 2010

I made a deliberate decision to not show all daemons. There isn't anyone in the world who would want to disable something like dbus - and letting a user do so would be a bad thing (imho).

I opted for storing a list of services a user would want to enable/disable. Perhaps I would be better off storing a list of services that they wouldn't, and then parsing the list as you suggested.

Something I can think about for V0.2 - Oct 21 2009

Wake On Lan is awesome. It allows me to turn my server on from my laptop without getting out of bed :-)

I'm trying to remember each time I use a command line app to write a GUI for it. Writing a small wrapper doesn't take all that long and brings Linux a bit more user friendly for everyone. - Mar 30 2009

I was really disappointed to find me clutching for the command line just after I bought a new USB pen.

Could you list what your upcoming plans are? I would love to see this become a gui for all disk tools, showing s.ma.r.t status and being able to set up RAID etc. In fact, let me know if you want a hand with anything. I'm looking for a new project to help hack on. - Oct 18 2008

From the enclosed PDF:
"Trying to read or use the source of the Software is not allowed as well."
That's not very KDE-esque.

Also I should note to anybody downloading that the software is written in Java. - Jun 24 2008

Must have been a temporary thing - They'd best not have gone down. I've just spend ages adding auto icon fetching using their API! - Oct 04 2007
This is fixed in what will be version 0.2 - Sep 03 2007
I agree entirely, that's the main feedback I've been getting. The main reason that isn't in the 0.1 release is because I'm yet to find a good default icon to use for the files.

I've just been reading your blog. (as best as google can translate it). I'm glad you like it. - Aug 22 2007

Brilliant idea, well implemented. You can also install it through Amarok's "Get New Scripts" inside Amarok.

As for working out badly-tagged albums I would suggest using Levenshtein.

Looks nice, but seems to have a bug when there are two kicker panels, for example on two monitors. The second panel has no icon.

Uninstallation is also a bit tricky.
It replaces kicker, which then doesn't want to be removed. I'm sure there must be a better way round it.

Should anyone need to uninstall it, the approach I found worked is:
sudo dpkg --force all -r kicker
sudo apt-get install kicker - Apr 08 2007

lol, I used to run it for a while. It's not as processor heavy as it looks in your screenshot of top, because most of it runs on the GPU. Unfortunatley apps which dock, go slightly mental with the compiz window manager in KDE, you can see amnarok creating that little window in the corner on yours. On my box it became unusable. - Mar 21 2006

A combination of two things me thinks. In the configuration there's an option marked "show programs without icons". If you don't have a firefox icon..There's your problem. Solution icon FF, check the box, or start using konqui! - Feb 15 2006
