Panel Spacer

Plasma 4 Extensions

Description:

This plasmoid let you put some blank space between the other applets located in a panel. You can set a minimum fixed size and/or allow the spacer
to stretch if there is free space on the right. Optionally, you can display a thin separator line.

This is useful if you want to place a plasmoid on the right in a panel, if you want to do logical groups of icons in your panel, etc.


Some ideas : there should be an easy way to do that in Plasma (maybe something to set the stretch factor or the minimal/maximal size of an applet directly from the panel-settings-toolbar ?). Moreover, maybe the plasma theme specs should be extended to include a SVG for separators.

Comments, patchs, code review (I'm quite new to this) are welcome :)

Pleasepleasepleaseplease!

WHENEVER:

- you refer to a Playground item,

ALWAYS:

- do give the _exact_ full svn line to check out the sources. The websvn url is NOT what one needs when one wants to actually checkout the sources and build the stuff.

Ooops! This wasn't intended to you. Your comment was visually similar to the one I intended to reply to. Sorry.

There is a updated sign but the source is still 89304-panelspacer0.1.tar.gz and the Changelog:
- 0.1 first release.

Is this updated ?

sorry, I just added a kubuntu package. The source is not updated (I will do some minor cleaning but nothing important)

Other packages and comments about this package are welcome (don't know if it works)

The lack of this was actually keeping me from using a panel at all, so big thanks.

One note for anyone else that might run into the problem I had. The makefile installs the files to /usr/local/lib/kde4/plasma_applet_panelspacer.so and /usr/local/share/kde4/services/plasma-applet-panelspacer.desktop, but Plasma wasn't picking up the applet from that location on my system (Kubuntu 8.10 Alpha 6). This is easily remedied by moving the files to /usr/lib/kde4 and /usr/share/kde4/services, respectively. I'm pretty sure there's a way to tell CMake what directory to install to, but I was feeling lazy and that worked well enough for me. :)

This is a good idea.

Especially i like: "I'm a PanelSpacer so i'm quite useless here... Please put me in a panel !" ;)
