Thank you for the plasmoid. I've been using for a few years, but one thing I'd like is to change the font color to match my other polasmoids. In all others, I can change the color to be 'softer' than Bright White. I have black desktop with a little less than white color eg, rgb 222,222,222.

I've tried changing the main.py file:
setPen(Qt.white) to Qt.lightGray
and font.setBold(True) to False, but the Bright White 00 00 00 remain.

Please tell me, us how to change the Font Color.

again, thank you, ???????.

I like the interface layout and the simplicity of using / configuring.
The UI is Not cluttered and hard to use.
Amarok has become Too much, too involved.

I want to listen to my music not learn a new app : )

the use of MPD, seems like my music sounds clearer.

Thanks,

Hello...
First Thanks for the menu.
I've been trying to accomplish this for a few years. I had to move the files myself, they were not installed in the /usr/lib64 nor /usr/share directories.

Anyways, my question is:
in you screen shots you show editing a 'menu' file. Where is that? What's it named?

And, your Howto text file says to 'use the settings icon' to change entries... Where is that?

Thanks again,
Landis. Nov 04 2015

i couldn't take it..
i shut it down, restarted.
had to give it another try...

Every conversion, that I know the answer to already, I tried...

All were right this time??? Why???

'Third times a charm' ?

Sorry about my previous post. I don't see a way to delete it... Sorry.
Landis. Oct 02 2015
Sorry, but Everything I've used your 'convert all' for has been Wrong.

Nice idea and a very nice UI...

-52 deg C is NOT the same as +52 deg. you can't just change - to + or add a '-' sign.
nor is 1 deg C 1.8 deg F
meters, kn (nautical miles) is not right...

2 out of 3 units wrong, not worth using or trying more...

sorry, because it's a good idea and looks good.

I cloned the git repo.
build (cmake)
make install.
[code]
Installing: /home/landis/bin/containmentaction-favorites/build/kde4-config-prefix/share/kde4/services/plasma-containmentactions-favorites.desktop
[/code]

i look in ~/.kde4/share/kde4/services/
no 'plasma-containmentactions-favorites.desktop' file.

the only 'changed' file is: plasma-applet-appmenu-qml.desktop - not it, eh. Aug 27 2015
OK, the build and make install completed without error.
I restarted my system and there is No 'favorites' option in default desktop > mouse actions. only the original 'standard menu', switch desktop etc, launcher choices.

Any ideas please.
i have, in the build folder a plasma_containmentactions_favorites.so file.

everything seems to work. no errors.

Thanks,
Landis. Aug 27 2015
I found and installed (thought i'd give it a try), libskde4-devel ( 'base files for building kde applications' )..

DaDa... built just fine.

thanks.
Landis. Aug 27 2015
your plugin looks exactly what i want. i've gotten so used to Enlightenment's favorites menu.

But...
in opensuse 13.1/.2 i can not find kdelibs5-devel.
not even libs4-devel... libs3-devel, yes.

There is NO kdelibs5-devel Anywhere, for any distro

I've Never been successful building an app from source. I want this one to work.

thanks.
I don't like reading de-structions, but...
once i figured out I needed to drag "youtube-dl-applet.desktop" to my desktop, it was so easy.

Decompressed archive in ~$HOME/bin/ .
Root-Action (service-menu): open console here.
run './install' (service-menu allows run as su)
Verify youtube-dl was in /usr/bin/
Drag 'launcher' to desktop.
Open konqueror, go to video site
Drag url to icon and pick a dl location, format.
Done!

Too Cool.
Thank You.

I use DSX desktop with Oxygen-Transparent (NOT transparent-oxygen) and except for the 'glow' on the widget borders, this is the closest i've come to full transparent..
I'm working on the svg borders elements and will offer when done, if i get to it...

Very nice, clean and fairly complete...
It is the icon theme I've been using since openSuSE 12.2 / KDE 4.8 ish. I supplement the mimetypes with my own, but use the rest.

well done,

Well Done.

this would be a decent looking 'theme', but it is Hugely Incomplete. There are No alternate icons, used to show content of folders and the document icons are so dark they are useless.
Sorry, but you need to make a note that it is an incomplete theme Before people download and install May 15 2013

I run KDE, but wanted a GTK theme to go with a theme I like for Firefox, FT Deep Dark from http://stefrosselli.com/pages/bloominbox-gui-firefox (as firefox is gtk).
I tried many themes, but decided on this one.
I like it.

I think the look, feel and concept is very good, but on openSuSE 12.3, KDE 4.10.5 when selecting a task running on a desktop other than the one the widget currently resides, causes Plasma to crash, every time.
bummer,
