Due to tighter integration of Plasma with KDE, some changes to the CMakeLists.txt file are needed to compile successfully.
1) Delete the line: find_package(Plasma REQUIRED)
2) Replace ${PLASMA_LIBS} with ${KDE4_PLASMA_LIBS} - Jan 17 2009
Note: To build successfully on Kubuntu 8.10, the additional packages need to be installed first.
build-essential, cmake, kdelibs5-dev, libplasma-dev

Tip: I suggest installing the "apt-file" program. When cmake complains that it can't find the file such-and-such, use "apt-file search such-and-such" to find the package with the needed file. - Dec 19 2008
darn refresh. sry for the double post! - Aug 10 2008
Thank you very much for such a versatile widget! It took some twiddling, but I've figured out how to make a "top" plasmoid from this.

Refresh every: 5 seconds
Font: Monospace 9
Command: Quote:
top -b | head -17 | tail -11 | awk '$9!=0 {printf("%5s %4s %s\n",$1,$9,$12)}'


top -b | head -17 | tail -11 gets the top 10 processes using the most CPU. The awk command filters out processes with 0% CPU, and cuts down the displayed information to just the process name, PID, and %CPU. - Aug 10 2008

Thanks for this theme! I love it! I like Aya because it's simple but not plain, and doesn't have weird glossy borders like the default Oxygen plasma style, and basically ALL other plasma styles I've seen. Plus, I like the stylish stripe/handle on the left. Also, I really appreciate you leaving the default look for the Notes plasmoid! I like my Post-It Notes to stand out in bright yellow, and all the themes that change the notes pale or white put me off. (What's the point of a note if it doesn't stand out?)

Thank you so much for making this theme! You are a talented artist.

Just for reference, I'm using Aya with the Oxygen window and widget style, with the Obsidian Coast color scheme. - Jul 31 2008

Hi! This is a really great applet. Any plans to make a version for KDE 4.0? - Jan 04 2008
Drats! nvr mind. I see it already has the ability to change the name, lol. - Apr 21 2007
<b>You misspelled "right Fan". My version is displaying "rigth Fan".</b>

I like this applet, but I wish I had more control over its display. (And not just to correct spelling :-) For instance, it would be cool if I could change "THM: 44 C" to "Temp: 44C" etc. Also, it would be neat if the font for the value was controlled separately from the font for the whole line. (E.g., have "CPU:" non-bold but the temperature that follows in bold.) One of the reasons I like KDE apps is that they usually allow an enormous ammount of custimization.

But it's good enough for me for now. :-) - Apr 21 2007

Better workspace ordering on taskbar (Mockup)

This might just be me, but the entire reason I put windows on different desktops is so I don't have them cluttering the taskbar. So please don't get rid of the Desktop Pager! This could be an optional feature though.

I also agree that KDE4 deserves a totally new Kicker. I personally would like to see a system that makes the System Tray and the Taskbar simply applets like everything else. People could write their own implementations, much like we have KBFX to replace the default K-menu.

For instance, I want an implementation that merges the Taskbar into the System Tray, because Taskbar entries take up so much space, and have much less functionality than System Tray icons. - Jan 28 2007

I'd really like it if Kdar could make it's own cron files, so that I could set it to do an incrimental backup everyday, a full backup every month, automatically delete backups that are more thon X days old, etc.

I really like the dar utility: it has built in compression that lets you list it's contents without extracting the file, you can extract files from the archive without extracting the entire archive, it supports incremental backups, and it breaks backups into disk sized chunks, which makes writing them to CD's or DVD's much easier. Unfortunately evey simple backup utility that automates backups either doesn't use compression or uses tar.gz files, which simply isn't as nice.

Any chance you could add automation of backups (and removal of old backups)? - Jan 27 2007

To add a preview image, login and click on "my KDE-Look.org" in the top right of the page. Click on "my content" and then "edit". Scroll down and near the bottom of the page you'll find "screenshot 1 (optional)". This is where you upload the preview - just reuse the wallpaper image.

But more importantly, shouldn't it be Renaissance, not Renascence? Both spellings are acceptable, but I see the first one more often. Or is it one of those American English vs. British English spellings? - Nov 18 2006
Removable Media Action Manager (mockup)

I've decided to postpone this project for now for two reasons. First, I've become really busy. Second, with KDE4 just around the bend, the whole removable media situation could improve with the introduction of dbus and Solid. Once KDE4 comes out, I'll re-evaluate the project. - Nov 13 2006
Thanks. I'd based my assumption for posting mockups on the recent "Rotate X window" and "service menu management to kcontrol". I've changed the title now to reflect the mock up status. - Sep 23 2006
As I said, it's only screenshots at this point - the download link just points to the screenshot again. Sorry!

It looks like people are liking the idea so far, so unless the Storage Manager is radically different in KDE 4, I'll try to make this. - Sep 22 2006

I like the rainbow background, and the reflection! It looks really good. (What app did you use to do that?)

I still think Konqui ought to look more like Godzilla, but maybe I'm being too tough on him. After all, his main mascot competition is a window, a penguin, and an apple. How tough do you need to be? :-) (Gnome doesn't really have a mascot does it? Does a footprint count as a mascot?)

But the penguin is cool. I think I'll go play SuperTux...

Maybe we could make a dragon-penguin? That would be... weird. - Oct 14 2006

I would love it if we upgraded Konqui to look more like this. Not this exactly, but you know, more modern. Konqui looks like something from Dragon Tales (tm) in his current state.

We need a lean, mean, green dragon machine! Maybe someone will do this for KDE4? - Oct 07 2006
