Plasmoid doesn't remember credentials. Could embedded webkit browser be configured in any way?

It isn't usable anymore, always crashes the plasma-desktop (KDE 4.5 & 4.6 on Debian Sid). Tried with a new user, same effect: as soon as the widget is in the panel the plasma-desktop crashes.

It doesn't seem to work with KDE 4.7 either. Anyone able to fix it?

Please add a message and it is desirable to chat with a facebook widget, and it would be ideal

The font size for "See all your notifications" is very tiny. I don't care about the date font size that much, but the all notification link really should be bigger, at least as big as the notification links.

I also would appreaciate a link to the facebook news page.

And/Or maybe you could add both links, the facebook news and the notifications page, to the right click context menu of the widget?

I am looking for something exactly like this. But I cant type in the add account box which shows up as blank anyway.

For some reason this plasmoid has "forgotten" to remember my login credentials so I never get any notifications. It used to work so I'm not quite sure of what the culprit may be. The only thing I can think of, and it seems like a stretch, is the update to KDE 4.5.2.

Only thing I'm missing, is a button to clear the plasmoid's history. But it's a nice start (and more handy than the chunky facebook widget).

seems there's an issue in kzip kde library:
(from a discussion on gmail-plasmoid thread)
Here is workaround:
1) unpack it
2) issue install command for the folder, where you have unpacked it.

Something's not right. I've installed through the Get New widgets dialog and with your instructions. It installs fine, I put it in the system tray and open the configuration dialog. Alls I get is two tabs, one that says 'Account' and one that says 'Misc'. Under Misc I get Polling Interval, however, under Account, I get a blank box that says "Login and Authorize the Application". Alls I can do is right-click the box and hit Reload. Am I missing something? The Amarok Now Playing widget is similar in the way that you add your account to the widget, and login to FB, then FB asks if I want to authorize it. But I can't my account or anything to this widget. Help?

The box where you right-click is a webkit widget that should load the facebook login page. What Qt and KDE version have you got?

I have been waiting for this for quite a while.

Some suggestions for improvements:
- I do not need an extra visible plasmoid, I would just like to have the notifications showing up in the KDE notifications area
- It may be worth having a look at the official Facebook toolbar for Firefox. It has also notifications integrated and does them quite well. You can configure exactly what you want to be notfied about.
https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/3794/

- There is no icon showing in the notifications via the KDE notification system.
- Would be cool if pictures would be shown in notifications and if links would be previewable.
- It would also be nice if "See all your notications" would not open a browser. Instead of that the notifications could be shown within the plasmoid.
- Would be cool if there would be a kind of filter "Do not show notications of Person/Page/Discussion"

Thanks for the suggestions. As you said, it's just a start.

Since KDE 4.4 (i think) you can insert a plasmoid in the systray and so hiding it.

Again thanks for the suggestion, i'll add them to my TODO list. I'm working on it in my spare time.
