Try to ask to the packager (probably he can fix the problem) or compile the source code

Hello, I used takeoff in the first beta versions. Today I try use 1.0 and plasma-desktop hangs. I have deleted .kde4 folder and still don't work. Is possible show a log or debug info with plasmoid-viewer takeoff? I think the problem is when takeoff "take" the application menus, I used fixmime from here (http://forums.opensuse.org/english/other-forums/development/programming-scripting/452482-fixmime-fix-invalid-mime-entries-sloppy-desktop-files.html) that correct many errors of kbuildsycoca4, but the problem persist.

Thanks!

Si, la transparencia está activa, lo mismo cuando probé en Chakra, se que ese factor es clave. Para instalar Takeoff en PClinuxOS solo tienes que seleccionarlo en los repositorios, uno de los desarrolladores hizo el trabajo rápidamente; por cierto que este me mandó un mensaje donde me dice que a el no le funciona.

Y si que tienes transparencia en el panel o en otros popup? (como el calendario o los elementos ocultos del tray)

Si, todo eso está ok,la transparencia del resto de los elementos de KDE no tiene problemas; con relación a los problemas que está presentando el desarrollador que empaquetó Takeoff para PCLinuxOS no te puedo dar detalles porque en su mensaje no me explica.

Pues es realmente raro, ya que Takeoff no hace nada especial, es un Plasma::PopupApplet estándar y de la transparencia se encarga KWin.

¿También te pasa si no lo poner en modo pantalla completa?

Desde el principio tuve que deshabilitar el full screen pues me tapaba el panel y no tenia acceso a este.

Pues ni idea :S Prueba a cambiar de tema, a deshabilitar y habilitar de nuevo los efectos de escritorio (Alt+Shift+F12) o a reinicia plasma-desktop ($ killall -9 plasma-desktop && plasma-desktop) y a eliminar del panel y volver a añadir Takeoff. Debería funcionarte al igual que el resto de plasmoides...

Pues la verdad es que no se que decirte, como te he comentado de la transparencia se encarga KWin, yo no hago nada que no hagan el resto de plasmoides :S Si te funciona con el resto de plasmoides debería hacerlo con este...

PD - No tendrás puesta una imagen de fondo no?

No, el fondo negro por defecto al no tener transparencia.

Saludos Expósito:

Hace unos dias vi su plasmoide, me gustó y como soy usuario de PClinuxOS le sugerí a los desarrolladores que lo incorporaran a los repositorios, todo fué realmente rápido, no más de un par de dias. El plasmoide funciona pero la transparencia no; pensé que pudiera ser un problema de implementación e instalé Chakra pero tuve igual resultado. Pudiera usted darme alguna idea de donde puede estar la dificultad.

Mis saludos una ves más, muy buen trabajo.

Pr cierto, ¿qué hay que hacer para instalar Takeoff en PCLinuxOS? Me gustaría añadir el comando a ejecutar en la página oficial ;)

En PCLinux no lo he probado, pero en Chakra lo tengo corriendo sin problemas, como puedes ver en las capturas.

¿Tienes habilitados los efectos de escritorio? (Preferencias del sistema -> Efectos del escritorio -> Habilitar los efectos de escritorio)

Hi,
I have Kubuntu 11.04 64bit system with KDE 4.7. I made an installation from repository, this refreshed the previous Takeoff installation. After reboot a got a failure message: "Unknown widget, this object couldn't be created for the following reason: Couldn't find requested component:takeoff"
The plasmoidviewer gives the following message:"QFileSystemWatcher: failed to add paths: /home/kribor/.config/ibus/bus
plasmoidviewer(3329)/libplasma Plasma::isPluginVersionCompatible: unversioned plugin detected, may result in instability"
Please help, because I would like to use this great application!

Hi! I use Kubuntu 64 bits too (but not with KDE 4.7) try to download the code and install it. Is very simple, you only need to donwload the current code:

$ svn checkout http://takeoff-launcher.googlecode.com/svn/Takeoff/ takeoff-launcher-read-only

Or the 1.0 code if you prefer (but I recommend you the SVN code ;) ) and follow the instructions of the README file. Of course, if you have any problem feel free to ask

Greetings!!

Hello,
I installed 1.0 from source, everything is working fine but the favorites menu is totally empty. What's the problem?

You only need to add the favorites ;) Make right click in the launchers to add or remove it to favorites (I'm working on import the favorites from Kickoff)

Added the widget from source.
Nice app
Worked OK until I removed the standard menu option.

Then froze. Not responding so had to terminate plasma-desktop.

All went black.
Reboot - all black.
Opened console and uninstalled widget.
Reboot
My desktop OK but now cannot add the widget - freezes the desktop totally. Only a reboot allows access.

Thoughts?
64 bit Natty.
