Widget not working on Kubuntu 16.04 needs to be updated to work with the latest version.

doesn't always minimize totally on all distributions.
In RHEL7 (SL7) it doesn't with KDE 4.14 but it does in RHEL6 (SL6) with KDE 4.12.
IS there an easy way to fix/debug the issue.

Thanks for a great time widget.

I'm trying to get this to work in SuperX 2.1.1 Ada which is built with the KDE desktop. I think it was built on top of Kubuntu 13.04 or 13.10
Found this plasmoid in the get "new widigets" option in the KDE task bar.

Followed directions for Kubuntu to the letter. Even installed "pacman" from terminal (had to, was directed to when typing in the command below), but when I type this into a terminal:
[code]
pacman -S kdeplasma-addons-wallpapers-marble
[/code]
All it does is open up "Pacman"

Followed path and all elements of timekeeper plasmoid are in the /home/.kde/share/apps/plasmoid/timekeeper folder as well as plasma-applet-timekeeper.desktop being in /home/.kde/share/kde4/services.

I got zip, nada, nothing.

What am I missing?

Thank.
Just an observation :
you name the first field "Week"
I think "Day" is more appropriate.

I've updated to you new version of timekeeper and it will not start cause one of the import statements is looking for a folder at the wrong place (OpenSuSE 12.3 x86_64) The path there is "/usr/lib/kde4/imports/org/kde/plasma/components" but in OpenSuSE 12.3 x86_64 the folder resides at "/usr/lib64/kde4/imports/org/kde/plasma/components". I've changed the path in the xml file and timekeeper runs as expected. Is there a way to check for the approprirate path?

This doesn't work with Mageia 2 64bit, so I tried lookin for a different path as you mention here bit I can't seem to find this.

I haven't tested this in mageia 32bit.

Do the following command in a command shell:

find /usr -wholename '*org/kde/plasma/components' -print 2>/dev/null

This command takes a while to run but it will show you where in the path /usr the folder components resides.

On OpenSuSE 12.3 i got two results. You may try out which one will work for you :-)

Good luck.

I got a tip from Dimitrios Glentadakis on the Mageia bug report site.

Try this first from root:
ln -s /usr/lib64/kde4/plugins/marble/org/kde/ /usr/lib64/qt4/imports/org

For a 32bit system, try:
ln -s /usr/lib/kde4/plugins/marble/org/kde/ /usr/lib/qt4/imports/org

And it works great with Mageia.

Whenever a KDE developer brings up the beautiful interfaces being made possible by all the work going into porting stuff to QML, they need to start including a link to your profile page here. Both of your steampunk-inspired widgets look absolutely stunning, and are prime examples of what's possible. Thanks for sharing this awesome work with us, and keep it up!

Thanks for the update, looks good now.

For the CPU usage it goes up if the gear animation is toggled ON, but then it stays up even if the animation is toggled back OFF.

Do you have the source code hosted anywhere, I would like to contribute some patches.

So far this is what I changed for my local copy:
1) In mani.qml increase the timer interval to 250 ms (increasing it to 1000 also works, but needs some more testing). will reduce the CPU load a bit.
2) Changed the calendar texture to accommodate full year display (2013 instead of 13).
3) Renamed the rectangles to give an indication of where they are used.

Thanks again for your work.

Hi! Nice plasmoid! The only thing: when I collaps it and reboot PC - it expands back. Could you make it remember everything I've done to it before?

Thanks!

First, thanks for this really "smart" plasmoid. It is one of those rear software that one has fun discovering.

Now a few suggestions if I may.
1. For the moon texture, would it be possible to use the one from "Luna.svgz (Full Vector)", this one looks a lot cleaner. http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php?content=107033
2. Is it possible to make the earth show the day/night area when it is zoomed out?
3. There seems to be a small graphical corruption on the right side of the clock where the month display is.

Thank you.
