Hi,

I've recently discoverd this plasmoid and started some working on it. What annoyed me was the waste of space when not using a title for the applet, so I changed some code to just add the title to the layout if it is non-empty, even removing it if it previously was non-empty and is now empty. I've uploaded my git diff here, as getting a kde developer account has quiete some requierements: http://pastebin.com/ZYApAnML - Aug 07 2014

Yes, it does! But you included your .git-Folder, which makes the download ~10 times as big as it needs to be :)

Also, there are some bugs:
when pressing Meta+Alt and "grabbing" the workspace for movement, sometimes text of underlying windows gets selected, somtimes windows change there (horizontal) size, and sometimes you cannot even move arround because you can not "touch" the strap-preview. Bad thing is, i can not even reproduce these bugs, they just happened once until now, and I'm happy with the old workspace approach, as my screen is big enough :) But one thing was reproducable: when switching to another workspace, the strap-preview does not get updated and the wrong windows are shown.

Just out of interest a question I asked in the comments of your blogpost about this add-on long ago, but did not get an answer: Why either horizontal or vertical, but not both?

And finally: great work! I hope you are still involved at KDE or some other open source project, where you can further show your talent and skills. I for one would be happy to see more of you work :) - Jul 10 2014

I think I found a bug: tooltips do not appear for non-all-day-events when hovering over the text. However, they do appear when hovering next to the text. I've looked into the code but did not find the cause yet. - Apr 06 2014
I've made some changes so I can have bold text for enabled events, the diffs can be found on pastebin.com
diff for daygraphicswidget.cpp: http://pastebin.com/index/bfpMbuHv
diff for daygraphicswidget.h: http://pastebin.com/9EEid245

I did not implement a option in the settings yet, as I currently do not know how this works.

I hope you like my work, it's the first time I'm doing something in C++ :) - Apr 06 2014
I have implemented icons vertically centered to the corresponding day myself, here's my diff: http://pastebin.com/XtFQPDNQ - Apr 04 2014
Thanks for the quick fix :) - Nov 10 2013
Oh, right, I did not think about multiple events on one day. The only thing I could imagine that would be suitable would be something like a bar with indicators for the time used by those events. But that would be to complicated to comprehend and would not give the ammount of information I would like to have.

Something else about the icons: I think it would look better if they were vertically centered to the corresponding day :) - Nov 08 2013
No, those are no "all day"-events. Here's a screenshot of the bug, comparing the stock calendar plasmoid with yours: http://abload.de/img/calendareventbugyhroz.png I'm using the arch linux AUR package, which right now is version 0.3 - Nov 08 2013
Is it a bug that for events the times are all wrong or better: non-existing? If i hover over an event it says it's happening from 00:00-24:00, but that is wrong. - Nov 06 2013
Great plasmoid! Only things missing for me:
- seeing the event texts without hovering, that means directly displaying the details. I'd love something like the long day in line one, the event and it's details in line 2.
- changable icons for visible items
- non-rounded today frame - Nov 06 2013
Icon Tasks

Smooth Tasks is what I've been using before, but with KDE SC 4.8 Icon Tasks "should replace Smooth Tasks", as I read somewere. Eventually I will go back to Smooth Tasks, but nonetheless Icon Tasks would benefit from these changes, that's why I'm proposing theme. - Jul 18 2012
Oh, and annother thing annoying me: If an application gets an allert message (e.g. incoming mail), then my previously hidden panel containing IconTasks gets visible for a few seconds. Please add an option to allow me to disable such behaviour! - Jul 10 2012
At first: great work!

But there are few things annoying me. Ok, only the first thing really annoys me, but the rest might be easy to change.

First, I'm using icon tasks in a vertical panel that expands dynamically to the needed size. What annoys me: The vertical size is getting to small, I'd like to be able to set it to a fixed value instead, so the icons allways have the same size, no matter how many of them are there. Please, PLEASE change this behaviour or at least let me choose!

Second: Why is there no option to disable grouping?

Third: Why can't I adjust the tooltip delay? It might make sense to have a delay-spinbox to choose between 0 (no delay) and some maximum value and make the last value turn off tooltips at all.

And last: Why can't I choose a style "Workspace Theme with Indicators" or "Colored Background without Indicators"? My suggestion: styles should only be "Workspace Theme" or "Colored Background" and the indicators should get an own checkbox to be more flexible.

I would really love to see at least the first problem fixed :) - Jun 24 2012

That so easy you can do it yourself! Just open the perfection-darkrc located in /home/[your username here]/.kde/share/apps/aurorae/themes/perfection-dark/ with the texteditor of your choice and change "TitleAlignment=Left" to "TitleAlignment=Center" and save this file. Now just restart KDE (e.g log out, restart..) or "change" your winodw decoration (that means choose another one, then switch back to dark perfection again) - e voila! - Jun 07 2010

Sadly, this was not the problem. I've uploaded the current state of my work here: http://www.fileuploadx.de/291540 I'd be glad if you could have a look at the svgz's and tell me, what's going wrong. Or better, that it's working for you :) - May 30 2010
Hey there!

Great decoration, really like it. But for my taste the title bar is much too big, so I'm trying to do a less space-wasting minimal-mod of this theme. Only problem are the svg's, if I mod yours with inkscape (saving them as svgz again), they just don't work, they don't display in aurorae. I don't know what the problem is as they have a working preview in dolphin, so do you have any hints for me? - May 29 2010
