Yes, that is definitely in the works. In Git I have Muon Software Center getting its "star" rating data from the Ubuntu review website like the Software Center does. I'm close to getting read-only support for reviews working, too.

Submitting reviews will probably take a bit more work, but I do plan on implementing that also. - Feb 25 2011
This is https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=264001 and it has been fixed for Muon Suite 1.1.1.

In the future, please use bugs.kde.org for reports, thanks. :) - Feb 03 2011
That's weird. The notifier looks for that file's timestamp to change, and manually doing so via touch should do that.

The notifier checks if it should show the popup manually on startup, so that explains why it works there. I really don't know why it's not seeing any changes to the file... :( - Jan 20 2011
Hmm, does the file "/var/lib/update-notifier/updates-available" exist? Either way, does running "sudo touch /var/lib/update-notifier/updates-available" make the popup show up? - Jan 20 2011
I really don't see what the problem here is. The install size of all three of these packages is only a little over 0.5 MiB. You can install all of Muon and it's "unstandard dependencies" for less than 2 MiB of disk space. - Jan 17 2011

Development has moved in to the KDE svn repositories, and the wallpaper has become a part of KDE 4.3. I do not plan on making any more KDE-look releases, as I cannot think of anything more to do for the KDE 4.2 version. - Jun 03 2009
Not yet, but I'm aiming to implement this feature for KDE 4.3. (Since the wallpaper plugin is now part of KDE 4.3) - Apr 20 2009
Hmm, good point. It'd be nice to have something better than boring blue there.
I'll see what I can do. - Apr 05 2009
Yeah, it's on the todo list. :) (And top on the list I might add) - Apr 05 2009
The wallpaper plugin has available to it all of the weather sources available to the official weather dataengine. The weather sources would have to be added to the KDE weather dataengine before they'd be available for the weather wallpaper or other plasma applets using the dataengine. - Apr 05 2009
You need the kdebase-workspace development headers. (kdebase-workspace-dev on Kubuntu, dunno about other distros) - Apr 05 2009

This will be coming in QuickAccess 0.9, thanks to Stephan Rave. - Apr 29 2009
That sounds like a wishlist item for the KDE notification system in general :) - Apr 24 2009
This is QuickAccess, not QuickLaunch. ;-) - Apr 06 2009
I've looked, and I don't really see an easy way to do move to trash/delete without a fair amount of work...

On the plus side I did find it was rather trivial to add "copy to" and "move to" actions to the context menu, following the settings set in Dolphin. :-)

Next feature release should also have a tooltip when you hover over the icon in the panel. If possible, I'd like the tooltip to show the current folder, but I haven't gotten to that yet... - Mar 31 2009

Basically it won't build on the PPA, and we don't know why. If anyone can divine why it won't build out of the log, here it is: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/16142924/buildlog_ubuntu-hardy-i386.plasmoid-weather_0.4-0ubuntu1%7Eppa5_FAILEDTOBUILD.txt.gz

The package got approved for Intrepid, by the way. :) - Jul 18 2008
Yes, I'm working on a package that will be available for install with the development version of (K)Ubuntu, Intrepid Ibex. (Which will be released as Ubuntu 8.10)
Unfortunately, most people don't and shouldn't use Intrepid due to it's instability at the moment.

I'll see about trying to get this backported to the kubuntu-members-kde4 ppa where the rest of the 4.1 packages are hosted, but I haven't had much luck with backporting another plasmoid to the same ppa. (the weather plasmoid) - Jul 18 2008

Thanks. :)

Yeah, I'll try to improve the applet background in future releases... My main focus for this release was getting the panel stuff done.

And about the blue border on the panel. I put that there because without it the panel blended in with full-sized windows a bit too well... I was thinking about making it a gradient instead of a straight line in future releases. If you have a better solution I'd be glad to listen. :)

I also need to do something about the logout dialog, because I failed to foresee the issues setting the text to black would cause with it... - Jun 27 2008

If you change line 42 in configdialog.cpp to "page->setIcon( KIcon( "user-identity" ) );" instead of "page->setIcon( KIcon( "user" ) );" you'll get the user icon instead of the question mark one. - May 12 2008
I have made Ubuntu/Debian packages for this Plasmoid. I'm hosting them in my PPA, so they can be installed like any other program.

Add this to your repositories list in Adept/Synaptic or whatever:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/echidnaman/ubuntu hardy main

Then, just install the emailnotify package from the package manager, or do a sudo apt-get install emailnotify . - May 12 2008
Whoops, I was accidentally using 0.3 source.
<.<
>.>
It's all good now. - May 12 2008
I still can't compile in the build directory with 0.3.1. :( If I'm in the source directory I can "cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/lib/kde4/ && make" and it will compile just fine, but if I'm in the "build" directory I made and do "cmake ../ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/lib/kde4/ it fails with the messages in my first post. - May 12 2008
It does compile when I do do a standard cmake in the root of the source directory, and then make from there. But when I make a build directory and do my cmaking/make-ing from there, it fails with the above error.

Still, I would like to be able to compile the app from the "build" directory. (Needed for packaging the deb) - May 12 2008
I can't compile this version. :(

I have placed updated .debs in my repository. - May 04 2008
Sure, that might be a good idea. - Apr 24 2008
Ok! .debs, as promised. I'm hosting them on my personal package archive, so you can add my ppa to your repositories list and just do a sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get install plasma-wifi.

Add this to your repository list:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/echidnaman/ubuntu hardy main

After the Ubuntu feature freeze is over I plan to try to get this package included with Intrepid Ibex. - Apr 23 2008
Removing "set(CMAKE_BACKWARDS_COMPATIBILITY 2.2)" from the CMakeLists.txt allows cmake to find X11, but then, of course, cmake fails when it trys to add the link target plasma_applet_wifi_signal. - Apr 23 2008
I have the same problem here. :( I can compile other Plasmoids just fine. - Apr 23 2008
Yeah, the Plasmoid looks fine, don't sweat it. ;) - Apr 23 2008
I could make a .deb of this, but I would need for there to be a copyright somewhere in the code so I can put it in the copyrights section of the debian files. Technically I could create a .deb without copyright info, but that .deb wouldn't be able to be uploaded to Ubuntu's repositories.

So uh, next version could you include your copyright, it's a good idea anyways, and having a .deb in the Ubuntu repos will open up an entire new audience for your plasmoid.

Oh, and nice plasmoid, I like it. :) - Apr 23 2008

I found the problem. The icons are being installed to "/usr/lib/kde4/share/kde4/apps/icons/oxygen" when they should be installed to "/usr/lib/kde4/share/icons/oxygen".
Even then, wouldn't the icon only work if you were using oxygen? - Apr 14 2008
Hi, I noticed that the coremoid.png used for the Coremoid entry in the Add Widget dialog doesn't get installed. (The one referenced in the .desktop file.) This causes the Coremoid entry to have the dreaded "Question Mark" icon. - Apr 13 2008

..oh yeah, you have to apt-get update before apt-get installing, but if you're just using adept it'll take care of that stuff for you. - Apr 11 2008
I packaged this and uploaded it to my PPA. Add this to your repository list:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/echidnaman/ubuntu hardy main

Then "sudo apt-get install toggle-compositing" - Apr 11 2008
Extremely useful!
Some Wine programs crap out with compositing open, and I always need the extra performance while playing games. - Apr 10 2008
