Description:

This is a plasma applet that displays the moon phases. If you click on it, then a dialog showing the dates for the next moon phases is shown. You can press the next and previous buttons to navigate to future or previous dates. Clicking the middle button returns to the current dates.

This plasma applet is based on Luna by Davide Bettio which is part of the default KDE 4.2 installation.

How can I customize the text on background? Now is black text on black (breeze dark) background: not visible. Also the popup is not displayed correctly: all white, text (snow) and background (white). Thank you. Your widget is very beautiful and useful.

Interestingly I noticed today that this plasmoid does not work any more on my Kubuntu 9.10.
Plasma does not report errors, the plasmoid is shown but the moon is not drawn.
Plasmoidviewer claims the following:
Couldn't find node 0. Skipping rendering.
QPixmap::scaled: Pixmap is a null pixmap

Anyone having an idea?

The original luna works.
Updating to last version, rebuilding and reinstalling did not work.

If the moon in Luna2 is supposed to be completely invisible on the new moon, then these remarks truly are a thoroughly embarrassing and, unfortunately, everlasting exposure of my ignorance.
Can someone confirm my assumption please

I like this plasmoid, looks amazing! Thanks for the work!

could you please add current moon day to a tooltip? Nice to know that information too.

Also, I see that "original" luna from kde is not updated for a quite now, is there a chance to replace it with your plasmoid?

Excuse my stupidity, but what do you mean with "current moon day"?

savnn

ouch, that's probably my bad English, sorry for the confusion.

When speaking "current moon day" i mean number of days passed from new moon. Number from 1 to 28

For text "pleine lune" (Luna Piena) I test one think, but the next full moon is the 6 august...

I do that:
Before compiling Luna 2, I edit the luna.cpp and I remove the 324 and 325 lines "assert( false );" and "break;"

After compiling, I launch luna2 and now I wait for the next full moon, the 6 august...
Wait and see

Sorry in my previous post I forgot two lines:
After remove lines 324 and 325 I add at this place:
line 324: toolTipData.setMainText( i18n("Full Moon") );
line 325: break;

And I am stupid because ultimately, I just replace "assert( false );" by "toolTipData.setMainText( i18n("Full Moon") );"

In my town it is very hot and my brain is tired...
Sorry

Bad news...
With this changing, no "Full moon" text appear...
I look for the code, but I am not a programmer...

After having looked the code, I have one solution, and I send you, t3ddy, an private message.
But the private message of kde-look seems not working...
Send me your email to my spam email:chepioq@hotmail.fr and I send you the files I have modified...

It's a shame the image isn't accurate - right now the image shows the thinnest of crescents, but it's now 4 days from the new moon, and last night I saw the crescent moon *much* thicker than this. I'll check out the source code if I get time (one day!)
