Description:

Plasma 5 widget for showing informations about your public IP address. This is useful for informational purposes and to monitor VPN geolocation.

The expanded view shows a map with informations requested from ipinfo.com: you can copy to clipboard the different informations by clicking over them. You can also open the map on the browser.

At the moment, only english language is supported.
It may happens that the widget does not load, complaining about something like QtPositioning and QtLocation. If this is the case and you are using Ubuntu (18.04), run this command:

sudo apt-get install libqt5positioning5 libqt5location5 qtlocation5-dev qtpositioning5-dev qml-module-qtlocation qml-module-qtpositioning

In any other distribution, you must look for libraries regarding qt5 positioning and qt5 location, as well the development libraries and the qml bindings.

Same here, but you can fix it.
Extract the "contents" folder in this new folder:
~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.github.davide-sd.ipaddress/

Then create this file:
metadata.desktop
with this content:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Public IP Address
Comment=Shows public ip adress

Type=Service
Icon=find-location-symbolic
X-KDE-ServiceTypes=Plasma/Applet

X-Plasma-API=declarativeappletscript
X-Plasma-MainScript=ui/main.qml

X-KDE-PluginInfo-Author=Davide Sandona
X-KDE-PluginInfo-Email=sandona.davide@gmail.com
X-KDE-PluginInfo-Name=com.github.davide-sd.ipaddress
X-KDE-PluginInfo-Version=1.0
X-KDE-PluginInfo-Category=Utilities

Then do the following in the terminal:
kpackagetool5 --generate-index -t Plasma/Applet

Then reloggin
