QuickLauncher Applet

Plasma 4 Extensions by svenstorp 130 comments

Thank's very much for that widget. While playing with it I have met small, but unpleasant issue if it happens. This is how I have received it - make quick launcher plasmoid 1 row, add a number of icons to it (at least 5 or 6 to reproduce the issue easier), put it rather close to desktop bottom border. Now start playing with plasmoid's size - its height should be rather big, and width should be smaller than icons summary width - so at some moment icons would overlay each other (looks very nice) and would also go away from plasmoid's right/left borders. The problem here is that right/left icon would overlay plasmoid's control handle and since this moment it is impossible move/resize plasmoid - I had to delete it and readd all icons again. - Sep 12 2008

Ok, those ones should be better, but don't blame me if they would load longer :) - May 09 2008

Also, just to clarify the situation - romdigger does not extract the shown info (preview image and metainfo) from the rom file itself - it just counts file's crc and searches the database of known games to get info about the rom file.

The game databases are taken from No-Intro and OfflineList projects - without them romdigger could not be much useful. - May 09 2008

Glad that you liked it :) I like it too :))

I am afraid, this will never happen. In addition to those 2 small libraries (romdigger base and kde3/4 integration module), which do the actual work, you will have to install rom file database with all games info (which is not really big - about 1mb for all 4 listed platforms) and also preview image packs (one package for each platform) - for NES its not so big - 26mb in archived state, but for SNES the preview image package is 97mb in packed state and 120Mb in unpacked.

I do not think any distributive would like to put all that stuff to system installation dvd (at least I wouldn't do it if I were a distribution packager :)

I am thinking of adding an option to download preview image from inet when it is requested for the1st time (then it would be stored in local cache), but this is a plan for far future.

But having this available through online repository is also a good option - currently there are 2 repositories for opensuse 10.3 (one for 10.3 default system, the 2nd is for kde4 unstable builds). - May 09 2008
