K Birthday Reminder

Plasma 4 Extensions

Description:

Plasmoid reminds you of birthdays and anniversaries of contacts[¹] in the (standard) KDE address book.
Inspired by the KDE3 kicker applet KBirthday from Jan Hambrecht.
As the version number indicates, the plasmoid isn't quite ready yet. Also there are a few issues I know of. You will find the list in the TODO file.
The popup displayed when clicking on the plasmoid's icon is supposed to show only when living in a panel. This popup dialog is not ready yet!
Hope you will enjoy using it anyway.

Problems with es_ES.po should be gone. Sorry for that.


[¹]Contacts can be added using KAddressBook or Kontact.

I build the plasmoid for fedora 9 and tried to use it. However, the plasmoid is completly black. Using the plasmaengineexplorer I notice that "kabc" does contain some around 10 entries with value "not displayable" (translated). Any idea, what this might be or how I can help debugging it? I am running a kde 4.1.1 with kdepim in the same version (kde-redhat)

Not displayable in the plasmaengineexplorer only means, that the explorer has no means of displaying the content (KabEntry) which is a typedef QPair<QString, QDate> which is registered as a QMetaType by the dataengine.

Is it complete black as in "black"?

You could try to change the settings "Show comming events in" to the highest possible value (90 days).
The 10 entries you can see in the explorer are the contacts from KAddressbook, which have either a birthday or an anniversary set.
However, that doesn't mean that these events are within the treshold defined it the settings of the plasmoid itself. The filtering is done in the plasmoid. If no events pass the filter an entry "No events" should be displayed. At the moment it is displayed - like the headings - in black. In case you have a black background you won't see either.
I'm still havn't made up my mind if I should add an extra option for the heading colour or just use the same colour as used for coming events.

If you still have no luck, you could try to change the desktop theme.

Let me know if that worked or not.

Thanks for your comment and sorry, that I reply so late. Everything seems to work fine now. Looks like something went broken with may kaddressbook while updating to an own trunk version of kde 4.2. I recreated the addressbook and everything works as expected.

By the way, I added your plasmoid as an rpm package for fedora 9: http://www.floriansievert.de/linux/repo/english.html
64bit version might follow at weekend.
