Description:

A web shortcut, with a preview, on the desktop. I got hooked on them on the N900 home screen; here's my take for Plasma.

Note: 0.4 requires KDE 4.8. The webcutimage data engine is required ( http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=147461 ). The data engine needs PyQt and PyKDE.

Introducing in 0.4, Webcutcut! A bit like the web shortcuts (gg:, wp:, dd: etc). Enable, set an url scheme, copy, click the Webcutcut button in lower right corner to engage.

How does the author use Webcutcut?
A Webcut pointing to a dictionary on my desktop, with the dictionary search configured as Webcutcut url.
When encountering an unknown word, select the word, ctrl+c, click the Webcutcut button and enjoy the dictionary entry on the word.

And I'm sure there are plenty other ways to use it, too.

is to enable support for adobe flash, because I want to use the application to online radios.

This applet aims only to provide a static picture of the page; probably the webbrowser plasmoid fits internet radios better.

Hmm, could you run it from console with "plasmoidviewer webcut" and see if it shows an error message?

(If I understood correctly) yes, that's the way I intended it (I realize my description was not very clear), but the behaviour you expected sounds also interesting, I think I will try adding it as an option later.
