Check out these awesome ideas: http://justgetflux.com/news/pages/mac/

The KDE Redshift could potentially add those types of features. It'd be pretty awesome… - Mar 07 2014
Great! Sorry if I posted a bunch of comments here just now. Every time I tried I got a "content not found" error and I thought it wasn't posting. - Jan 08 2013
Hi, I installed a new system with redshift and then compiled the latest 0.51 version of the plasma widget. The instructions didn't tell me that I needed to install g++ but once I did that it worked. But then I had the icon problem.

All I had was file:///usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/redshift-status-manual.svgz

I moved the icons from my old system into the new one and now it works, everything is great! But you should know that this didn't work right automatically. - Jan 08 2013

I installed the latest 0.51 version after installing redshift through apt and I have the icon issue again. I did not install redshift-gtk.

In the icons folder all I have is /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/redshift-status-manual.svgz

I took the 3 icons from my old computer redshift-status-on.svg redshift-status-off.svg and redshift.svg and copied them to my new isntall. I'll see if that does it. - Jan 08 2013

get v. 1.3, I don't recommend any previous version. - Apr 29 2013
The new update was redone with a different set of widgets, and I think it is much more standard and will get the effect I actually intended! - Jan 06 2013
I hope people like this. I couldn't find any color scheme I really liked. I don't want translucent fancy stuff, I want clear, and not too bright. I am sure there is room to improve this. I may have a few quirks here that are odd. I hope anyone who likes this will build on it. Please feel free to give me any feedback! - Dec 15 2012

instead of clicking to get the popup, I'd like a setting that would make clicking go right to the website, so that is done in one click instead of two. Thanks! - Jan 28 2013

NEVERMIND. I see that you effectively have a spacer included in the widget. I just needed a spacer on one side and to make it flexible and I basically got the centering I was looking for!

Cheers! - Jan 11 2013
Using two spacers helped, but this still demands extra space only on one side, so it is still off from center of the empty area.

So instead of a "centered" option, could you just make it so it doesn't automatically add extra space on the right? Then it could grow and the spacers will keep it centered. - Jan 11 2013
I assume this is the same thing as the widget that is included by default in KDE now, the Icon-Only Task Manager.

I am very happy with it, it solves the clutter problems with the normal KDE task manager. I just wish that it coul dbe centered. I am using it on the bottom panel instead of the side, and I have other things in the panel. I'd like the items to be centered within the range of the panel that the task manager uses.

Thanks! - Jan 11 2013

So, that switch fixes the problem?
Incidentally, I just got rid of this and went with KGmailNotifier and that widget works fine. I don't remember if there's any reason I'd prefer this… - Aug 27 2012
I isolated the gmail-plasmoid as the source of this problem.

I have a glitchy internet connection. Sometimes my wifi connection to the router is still on but no network traffic is successfully going through. I have no clue what's wrong, but it happens to all devices on the network. Mostly, it means that web pages just sit there trying to load and don't get anywhere, and eventually give up. By turning off and back on the wifi connection, I usually am back and running. Reseting the router works too.

But since installing the gmail-plasmoid, if it fails to connect in this situation (where there is a router connection, but the real internet access isn't going through), it makes the whole plasma desktop hang. And if I get the network connection stopped and try to start it again, the whole KDE session goes down to a blank screen.

So the plasmoid is missing some necessary command to let go of the system when it fails to connect. It is a problem with it not giving up I think. It needs something that says that if no ping back occurs or no data or something within a couple seconds, then give up and try again later. I think that would solve it.

Until this is fixed, I can't use it at all. - Jul 29 2012
