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.

I'm having the same problem as earlier user:
"the object could not be created for the following reason:
file:...main.qml:113.5 type calendar unavailable.../Calendar.qml:16:5:type marble"
then "unavailablefile...Marble.qml:2:1:module org.kde.edu.marble is not installed."

Have followed the instructions to the letter, marble is installed and runs, I created the imports folder as root and created a link to it as suggested. The link is present.

The error still persists.

Running Kubuntu 12.04 in Virtualbox.
Any thoughts?

I'm getting the same error as niceway, the error message says that calendar type and Marble type are not available, and that org.kde.edu.marble is not installed.

Of course, marble and its plugins are installed.

Due to unknown reasons Kubuntu 13.04 loads but doesn't install org.kde.edu.marble.
this can be corrected using the following commands

sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/qt4/imports/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/kde4/plugins/marble/15/org /usr/lib/qt4/imports/org

I don't know how about Linux Mint 13 but with Kubuntu 13.04 the following commands helped

sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/qt4/imports/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/kde4/plugins/marble/15/org /usr/lib/qt4/imports/org

Hi,

Nice work! KDE G+ community was crazy about your work.

I heard news there and got it installed.

Then I found the widget can't be resized.

It's okay.

But whey when I tried to resize it, the help bar's height was changed. That's unexpected behavior, right?

Right, but unfortunately I could not find API to hide resize button.
