Many thanks.

I've changed the way of dealing with config in the latest version (to satisfy other demands), and I guess what I have done is not clean at all.
However, it seems to work on KDE 4.5.5, but maybe the previous or further versions don't deal with plasmoid id as I was expecting.

Can you provide me the kde version you are using ? (and do you use a lot of other plasmoids ? does this problem appear also when this plasmoid is the only one running ? ...)

If you want to fix this quickly, you can go back to the previous way of dealing with config by editing the file (~/.kde/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/fading-calendar/contents/code)
Just change:
on lines: 20, 55, 70 and 98
(but then, the problem raised previously (no different config for multiple plasmoid) reappears)

I will try to find a better solution, but unfortunately, I don't have time for the moment to dig into kde and qt docs or to spend a lot of time in experimenting myself.

Finally, I've found some time to work on this.

1. Done. It's an ugly workaround, but it works and I haven't found any documentations on the subject (maybe I haven't seek enough).

2. Done. The "w-e days" style can be customized. And if today is a w-e day, the "Today" style is applied.

When downloaded with firefox, in a terminal, what is the result of:
$ plasmapkg -i *fading-calendar.plasmoid

A .plasmoid file is simply a zipped file. You can also try to open it:
$ ark *fading-calendar.plasmoid

You can also try to install it via the plasmoid panel:

Hehe, I don't try to compete with conky, I don't want to lose :) - May 15 2010
Thanks for the feedback.

Hum, do you have more info ?
What is the error message in a terminal when you try:
plasmapkg -i ./fading-calendar.plasmoid
plasmoidviewer fading-calendar

It's a python script, it then needs pyKDE4, pyQt4 and pyKDE4.plasma
Try installing kdebase-workspace-python-applet or something similar.

I've added an option for a circular version.
The config in this mode is then a bit messy, but there are explanations in the description.
It's not yet as sexy and flexible as what conky can do, but it's my first plasmoid.
Feel free to hack it.

sorry for the delay.
Unfortunately, I can not test on such resolution.
It's probably a problem of resolution of the background picture (splash.png), that maybe you can resize.
Maybe it's also possible to play with the position or the scale inside the script (lines 7 -> 12 in FedoraVizta.script)

Thanks (and sorry for the terrible delay).
Changing the logo is really easy, it's just a matter of changing the logo.png picture.
(It's in fact mainly the only thing I've done, the real great work has been realized by ) - Jan 16 2011

On Fedora 11, KDE 4.3.1

When I compile, I get:
abstracttaskitem.h:127: error: ‘AbstractItemPtr’ in namespace ‘TaskManager’ does not name a type

I succeed to compile by changing each "AbstractItemPtr" by "AbstractGroupableItem *"
It compiles and runs.

Hoping this can help other people (or used to patch the release ?) - Sep 16 2009
