Great Job, simply but useful plasmoid for steam users

Some things (i think) would be great: Specials list in another tab, hide games tab without steam id, vertical scrollbar, default tab view...

Thanks for your work!

Hi, as you can see have updated the plasmoid with two of yours requests: hidden tabbar and show/hide scrollbars feature.

Unfortunately, the look of scrollbars isn't plasma native, they're in qt. Match the plasma theme requires a lot of code; since I have planned to port it to QML I'll delay your third request until then.

What do you mean with "default tab view"?

Thanks

I downloaded the file and make a build, but i don't see anything new.. i don't know why.

I want to explain me:
- I think if i haven't set my steam id in options, "my games" tab could be hidden. Or not, it's your choice.
- Spotlight, Weekends deal or today deal could be in differnet tabs (or not). But i think specials list must be in different tab, it would be useful!.
- A vertical scrollbar (any kind of it) it's more easy to use than drag the back of plamoid up or down (This isn't bad... but...).
- Default tab view: If we have two or more tabs, if i want to set the default tab to view when i open the computer, not always the "spotlight" tab. (In my case, a supposed "special" tab)

And in addition:
- An option to set font size, at least.

Thanks to hear me, and sorry for my english!

Have re-checked the package provided by kde-apps and it is ok, so try again.

Like said in my previous post, I have fulfilled two of your requests; about the others:

1) much of the time specials are few so I think it is useful to have all offers in one place

2) since, because of 1), max tabs are two and since I don't think that anyone want to use the library tab as default, choosing a main tab is useless.

Thanks

When i rebooted, the plasmoid had the changes. It's good to know.

I like a tab with specials because it's a fast view of all discounts, and i think is much useful, and now i have to go down, down, down... I try to use Web Slice Plasmoid to view only steam' specials, but didn't work.

Your plasmoid is more complete (obviously) but i don't know what possibilities have you extracting the information from steam website, and what can you do with formatting (Separate information, change font size, etc.) these kinds of personalization are more attractive than a plain page with all the information.

My problem with games tab is because my game list is private, and it's the reason why with SteamID or not i cannot use this. Some others community options would be great, instead.

Great idea - a way to be notified of all the games I would buy if there was a native Steam client for linux :)

I assume this uses a filtered RSS feed from the steam site? Sounds like the logical thing to do.
