Does or can it share bookmarks with KDE? For example, Konqueror and rekong use the same bookmark store. - Jan 27 2012

Bugfix:
http://paste.kde.org/156830/ - Dec 08 2011
Sample slideshow script has the following deficiencies:

1. It does not explore subdirectories.
2. It fails with directories with accented characters in its path.

I made this shell script that addresses these shortcomings:

For it to work you need this change on inputmethods.cpp.

Thanks for the tip. I think I will not be the only migrator from GTK ibus to kimtoy. So, should this not be in the FAQ section? - Nov 24 2011
Maybe I am the only one but, iBus does not work if the daemon parameter "-c .../ibus-kconfig" is set. The default engine, Anthy, does not load and the kimtoy panel does not show. ¿How can I help you to debug this?
Kimtoy 1.3
iBus 1.4.0 - Nov 19 2011
Suggestion: add "-r" as a parameter for the iBus daemon so that kimtoy can be used even if iBus is already started. - Nov 19 2011
Nevermind. I did not find a reference to 1.3.99 in the git repository but it is in Google Code downloads. - Jul 03 2011
Hi, do you mean 1.3.9 and not 1.3.99?
Because currently in Debian is ibus-1.0 according to pkg-config, the headers are installed under ibus-1.0 but the library is still called ibus (libibus.so). If that is so you should add ibus as a possible library name in FindIBus. - Jul 03 2011
This depends on some parts of kimpanel, right? For example, the glue code for IBus/SCIM is missing. I had to run ibus-daemon with Kimpanel's panel.py code.

An issue I have with your panel is that I can not move it. It is stuck at the top of the screen.

Another note, Kimpanel can run as an standalone application too, running outside Plasma-Desktop. - Apr 18 2011

Asking code verification every time makes me suspect that it is another problem with some other software or a overly paranoid security setting in gmail. - Sep 23 2011

Please try the advanced version:

KDE version? - Sep 23 2011
It seems white is the new black ;)
As I said above, patches accepted. - May 07 2011
Thanks :)
How could I forget this feature? It's a one-liner change and it does not even involve code. Check v1.3. - Apr 26 2011
Sorry about that. I could verify that the panel and network fixes do not work in KDE 4.4.5. That Plasma-Desktop version is very buggy. I suggest to upgrade KDE.

A workaround:
Create a launcher for `plasmoidviewer org.orbitalibre.google-tasks` and put it in the panel. - Apr 24 2011
It now turns into an icon in panel. The popup features a themed border as well. - Apr 23 2011
Done. - Apr 23 2011
Please try the new version. - Apr 23 2011
Feature is looking for icon.

Patches accepted :) - Apr 17 2011
Thanks for the detailed problem description. That helped me find and workaround it. I think it might happen due to a Qt bug. Can you try the new version I just uploaded? - Apr 14 2011

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. What is the advantage of not using GLib? Most distributions nowadays ship Qt with GLib mainloop integration. - Mar 24 2011

I have seen this reported for Python widgets as well for KDE 4.5. Sadly, I do not have KDE 4.5 installed anywhere so I cannot test this at the moment - Mar 04 2011
Hi, which one did you install? Did the last message appear on the desktop or plasmoidviewer? Please install the 45 version and execute "plasmoidviewer olibreplaces" in the terminal. - Mar 04 2011
Hi. Are you using KDE 4.5 or older? Please try the 4.5 download.
If that does not work, please tell me the output of:

plasmoidviewer olibreplaces

or

plasmoidviewer org.orbitalibre.places - Feb 24 2011
Sorry about that. It now should be installable from the Plasma desktop.

You can also download it. Click on it and open it with "plasmapkg -i". - Feb 22 2011
You should be able to install without problems plasma-scriptengine-ruby from Fedora 15 because the package only contains ruby scripts, that don't change very much between KDE versions. - Feb 22 2011

I don't think so. But let's see what Plasma/Qt brings for 4.4. Hopefully, better layouts. - Sep 26 2009
On KDE 4.4 you will be able to simply drop the wallpaper to the desktop.

But, what exactly does your servicemenu do anyway? :) - Sep 26 2009
Text: "Next wallpaper"
Subtext: "Shows the next wallpaper in slideshow mode"

Suggestions? - Sep 26 2009
Nevermind. I already implemented it. Will shortly upload with other improvements :) - Sep 26 2009
Hi. Can you reupload it, or email it to me? Thanks :) - Sep 26 2009
Thank you for your comment. Yes, it is a known issue. Image and Slideshow use the same plugin and I have not yet found a way to tell which is the used one. I should note this on the description. - Dec 13 2008

It works perfectly in pure Debian (my laptop).

The includes issue must be a difference from the debian-multimedia repository. Maybe the white background is a bug there too. I'll try again later. - Sep 19 2009
I restarted plasma-desktop from konsole to find some clues on the white background.

Output is filled with:
[swscaler @ 0x7fbec1063040]No accelerated colorspace conversion found.

But it appears when I only use the preview as well. - Sep 18 2009
Debian 5.0, with self compiled KDE. Nvidia card, and two screens.

I commented on the includes below ↓ - Sep 18 2009
The same as in Debian.

you need the Find modules like this:
find_path (libavformat_INCLUDES libavformat/avformat.h

and change the vid.h includes to
#include <libavformat/avformat.h> - Sep 18 2009
On my system I had to tweak the includes to the format livavcodec/avcodec.h in the cmake modules and vid.h to get it to build.

Once it builds, the preview plays fine but, I get a white background on the real thing. - Sep 17 2009

As you can see in http://websvn.kde.org/?view=rev&revision=917041 the comicbook backend got a nice update :)

This is from kde trunk (soon to be 4.3). I am not sure if this will be backported to 4.2. - Jan 26 2009
The problem is that the Okular backend opens *every* image when loading the comicbook to get the pictures sizes, which is suboptimal.

Gwenview, in KDE both 3 and 4, opens only one image. I forgot Gwenview. It is almost perfect, yes. I just have not filed some bug reports for some annoyances. - Jan 15 2009
>What's the purpose of a comic reader with okular as backend? Just to have a simpler menu?

Because I like Okular. QComicBook has some annoyances and Comix(just tried it) has an horrible interface. And yes, Omaque is simpler. It can improve and get more features, though.


> I used to use gwenview + kio-slaves in kde 3, in kde 4 it moved to okular, but okular speed
with archives/cbr/cbz is really too low, so I moved to comix (not a kde app), and it's way faster!

The Okular backend can see improvements in load speed. I might tackle this in the future. But it uses the same libraries the KIO Zip slave uses. - Jan 15 2009

A recent change in kdebase broke the ruby plasmoids. You can fix it by reverting the ruby scriptengine package. - Jan 11 2009
