How do you get this working?
I installed the plasmoid widget and put it in the panel. There was no icon. Clicking the space brought up what it was - but no option to sms!
I uninstalled and tried github.
git clone git@github.com:comexpertise/plasma-kdeconnect-sms.git

ok - so I tried the plasmoid widget again. It installs in the panel and will not work. It cannot install to latte dock. It installs to the desktop AND WORKS but in an open extended form . That's ok if you are someone who litters their desktop with widgets or if you use the de as an office for communication but otherwise it is an imposition.
Can this install as a pop out widget in the panel to be concealed until called upon? Can it be connected to Kaddressbook so as to click a number and have the kde sms widget pop up? Typing numbers that you have to look up means you will simply use the phone instead.
Good job - just needs the extra steps to be awesome!
Or am I an idiot who cannot install and use it right?
Thanks!

hi, thank for this good app.
it should use kopete so as to be less minimalistic. get acces and choose contact would be nice.

Hi, it feels like a good widget and works fine, thanks. However why is it so minimalistic ? I would need to have my contacts listed by name in order to really be able to use it. I've imported the vCard contact lists from my phone into Kontact, if that may help.

I really need this Plasmoid but I don't know how to install it. I have openSUSE Leap 42.3 with KDE plasma 5.8.7, Frameworks 5.32.0, Qt 5.6.2 and kernel 4.4.126-48-default.
I have installed KDE-connect 1.0.3-2.1 but I cannot see any SMS information.
I clicked the "Download" tab and I got a zip file which I unzip but then I didn't know what to do.
I tried this command: kone1:~ # git clone git@github.com:comexpertise/plasma-kdeconnect-sms.git
but I got:Cloning into 'plasma-kdeconnect-sms'...

Could some one help me, please.

Hi Raijar,

You can install the plasmoid directly via the Discover app (Kubuntu) or :
1) right click on the desktop
2) Choose "Unlock Widgets"
3) right click on the desktop (again)
4) Choose "Add Widgets"
5) On the left side bar, click on the "Get new widgets" at the bottom
7) Search for "SMS" and install the "KDEConnect SMS sender (plasmoid)"

when you click in the message field then the text "Your message..." does not disappear. you must delete it.
the text icon is not displayed. instead we have a rectangle.

i don't put plasmoid in the desktop but in the desktop bar.
in this case :
- there is no icon in the bar, only a space
- if i click on this space then nothing happens

i must define a short cut as for example alt_S to open the window of plasmoid.

please add somewhere the version number of the plasmoid. it is useful to know if we had an old version.
i am very impatient about kaddressbook integration.
thanks

Works well thankyou, I'm using Debian Sid.
I was going to mention the need for contact integration but I see that you've mentioned it's a future feature.
In short I love it.

The version from the KDE store doesn't seem to work quite right, but it works fine when installed from GitHub.
With the store version, the GUI didn't show up and it didn't have an icon.

Testing successfully in openSuSE Leap 43.3 KDE Plasma 5.8.7 (Qt 5.6.2) Kernel: 4.4.92-31-default x86_64.

As a suggestion, integration with a Phone Book would make it invaluable.

Thank you so much.
