Hi, I'm really excited about this plasmoid, been using a shortcut to mouse settings for years!

But I don't know if it is working. I installed it though GHNS and can't find it among the plasmoids through search. - Dec 23 2013

Oh that would be awesome. Though it seems like they still haven't made up their minds.

If I can add one more item to your wishlist: online sync so I can use the same software on different systems. :-) - Dec 20 2013

Hey jimmy88,
hope you're doing alright?

I would bet so many of your fans here just cannot wait to get compatibility with the latest Firefox.

Thanks again for your tremendous and masterful work with this theme! - Sep 24 2013
Next to the download buttons to the right on this page is actually an option to subscribe. That way, you can receive email notifications with every update. (If you can't find it, just search the page for "subscribe" with your browser's search function.) - Sep 18 2013
Any word on the update? Thanks so much! - Aug 14 2013
Ok, never mind! It worked when I first disabled Oxygen KDE, but now it's not working again! Must be something else. - Jun 23 2011
Oxygen KDE seems to blame that the add-on Bar Tab Lite (the FF 4-5 version of Bar Tab) isn't working. Bar Tab Lite offers a huge advantage when you start FF with the last session, as it only loads those tabs that you activate. It saves a lot of startup time (and memory) when Firefox only loads 1 or 2 tabs at startup in contrast to 40, and at the same time. The Oxygen KDE theme seems to somehow disable this function.

I tried to deactivate different add-ons to see which of them was to blame, and to my surprise, it ended up being the Oxygen KDE theme. With FF having become such a memory hog, it is not going to be viable for me to use FF without Bar Tab. Is there any way you could verify this problem is caused by Oxygen KDE and work things out so I can use your theme again? I really like it. - Jun 23 2011
I don't know if this has been suggested, but one thing you could improve is the position of the indicator arrow when dragging a tab to a different location. This happens when you use tab rows, I don't know if it works right with a single line of tabs, and it may be related to TabMixPlus. Currently, when I drag a tab to a new spot, the arrow appears at the bottom of the row pointing down. This is so misleading that it generally seems as if the tab were to be placed in the row beneath. So one simple thing to do would be to move that arrow up.

Thank you for your great work! :-) - Mar 29 2011
Same here with FF 4.0! It says the file is corrupted. - Mar 25 2011
I took a screenshot and I have to admit that I was wrong. I don't know what made me see this, but I was so sure about it I even left a comment. Sorry and thank you for your reply. - Feb 07 2011
I've noticed that RC1 doesn't pick up my color scheme correctly anymore (like the Betas mostly used to). Yes, it still finds that my selection color is green - but for some reason it gives me the wrong shade (at least in some places). I use [url=http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Ordinary+Green?content=107944]these colors[/url] on my system, but Firefox gives me a shiny grass green that is about the shade of the Oxygen reload button.

Plus, in the pop-up that comes up when you start Firefox sometimes and that tells you that there are add-on updates available, uses the default KDE colors and does not pick up on my system colors. - Feb 04 2011

- Jun 11 2010
Ok that was definitely a brainfart. I had the old version installed and forgotten about it. All good now!

However, I notice that my tab bar with currently 2 rows is wide enough for about 5 rows, and depending on the amount of tabs the position of the rows actually changes. Is this some kind of bug in the theme, or do I have to go hunt for a buggy extension?

Thanks again,
Alvanx - Jun 09 2010
Hi,

It looks great in your screenshots! However, my FF still only looks like any GTK app with this theme. I realize you mentioned to turn off all user styles related to the theme, but I have to confess that I don't know how to do this (or if it even is my problem). Does this refer to styles like QtCurve?

Hope you can help me. Sorry if this has been answered, but the comment sections here are kind of inconvenient to search...

Thanks a lot,

Care to provide a package for Ubuntu 12.10? Thanks a lot! :-) - Jan 09 2013
0.6 looks very promising. If 0.7 comes with SWORD support (as indicated in the changelog on git), that will be great! One question: How can I install TheWord modules, in particular on Linux? The module installer only helps to install Zefania XMl texts.

Small request, but how about an openSUSE 12.1 repo? Thanks and good work! :-)
- Dec 08 2011
I don't know if you know about this (and I don't know how good it is): http://code.google.com/p/dbst/

Toward the bottom, it says that the library "DSword" is there to help SWORD front-end developers out. Incidentally this software also uses Qt4.

(Just thought it might be helpful.) - Jan 06 2011
Sounds very promising! I'll check back frequently then.

Could you use any help that a non-programmer (but theology student) could offer?

Also, your website seems down.

Alvanx - Jan 03 2011
Hi,

Nice and simple, appealing app! It works pretty well considering its young age, but there is still a ways to go until it reaches feature parity with BibleTime (this is not to say you can't get there). But I especially like the modular interface. Also, it is the only Zefania App that I know that directly downloads modules.

I was wondering if you had any specific plans in terms of the direction of the development. Are there by any chance plans to support SWORD at some point? I realize Zefania XMl is probably easier to support, but SWORD would just be one more step (and many of the Zefania modules don't work)...

Also, I was wondering what kind of app BibleQuote is, and where I can get modules for that.

Thanks! You are doing a good job!

This fixed it, thank you. Great widget.

There is one more thing I noticed. The options dialog window is way bigger than it needs to be.

Thanks for your great work. - May 16 2012
Great, thanks, works now!

I have one issue now: The widget claims that Akonadi isn't running when it is. It worked right when I added the widget, so the problem seems to be that eventlist doesn't recognize when akonadi is started.

Thanks! - May 12 2012
Hi, I'm excited to try out this widget, but all the opensuse 12.1 packages are for KDE 4.7. Is there any way to provide a package that works with 4.8 (and akonadi 1.7?) Thanks! - May 10 2012

Thanks for the reply, I hope it will help.
When I try to start the service manually, I get "Failed to create secure directory: Keine Berechtigung [no rights]
main loop". The service doesn't appear to be started. I also don't have pulseaudio running. But I guess right now I don't want to take the trouble to switch over. Maybe another time. - Oct 14 2011
Are you building the openSUSE package as well? If so, I have to say that it doesn't have all (or any?) of the dependencies sorted out. I am glad you had them listed here. I had to pull in swh-plugins and python-kdebase4 (which is the package that has the plasma-scriptengine-python) manually. Also, Veromix runs twice in my system tray, and the only thing I can get it to display was amarok playback information. I thought I might have to set pulseaudio as phonon-backend, but I don't find packages for that, so I must be wrong. How can I get it to display more than playback information? And how can I reduce it to 1 instance? Thanks! Can't wait to see on my own system what veromix can do. - Oct 13 2011

I installed Konstruktor beta from openSUSE KDE 4.6 playground. It asked me for the library, so I downloaded the .zip and unzipped it to /home/user/.LDraw/ldraw. I also added the updated parts file. Now Konstruktor crashes at startup after I selected that path. After I click away Dr.Konqui, I get a popup saying "Could not scan LDraw part library."

Here's the backtrace:

Thank you for your help. For some reason my dropbox.py had been within my Dropbox folder (I don't remember what I did when I first installed it). I reinstalled it again according to your instructions and was confused because I thought that the location should be /bin/dropbox.py, to where I installed it. Later I saw (from the last screenshot) that you actually installed it into /home/[user]/bin. Does this make a difference?

I get this output when starting it from a cli:
"$ dropbox.py start
Starting Dropbox...Exception in thread RTRACE:

And it still doesn't seem to connect after setting up kdropbox right. Is the problem with the folder I put dropbox.py in? Or is it something else?

Works great an looks nice! I will probably keep it on my desktop!

Here are a few suggestions:
-it's a little chunky. I don't want a plasmoid to take up an 8th of my desktop, so I sized it down. This would work better if it was designed a little smaller (I don't know if that's possible). Specifically there is a lot of unused space at the bottom.
-Is there a way to display more than max. 4 verses? Or to change the default translation? - Apr 11 2010

Your original button color (this: #7B9747 ?) would also look nice as a background for the active selection... - Apr 05 2010
It looks a little better in terms of contrast. I have tried it and messed around with it for a while. I don't have webspace to upload it, but I can give you color code. Maybe that will help you understand what I mean. My take might not be the best, but it's what I could come up with for now.
I like a few contrasts, so I made the following changes:
-button background color=window b.c.
-selection text to white
-selection background to maybe something like #858E50 (which is a darker version of yours) or #6C9945 (which makes for a nicer contrast, but deviates from your theme a little), or something in the likes.

What do you think?
