>While at it, you could make clearer >that this applet is a copy of the >upstream plasmoid, that it can lag

Just like to point out that this plasmoid is not an exact _copy_ but a bit different:
This shows the time remaining _constantly_ and the text has an offset from the image. See the monochrome screenshot.

Sebas, can you carefully see in the DESCRIPTION just below UNINSTALL a bit text called CREDITS. This is where I took the initial code.

>Ow, and for your users, it would >probably be a good idea to also state >how the same can be achieved by >editing the config file.

Several things in gnome can be done by editing the config file but in KDE-SC everything has a nice place in systemsettings with simple tick boxes. I like this plasmoid to be in this way.

With due respect why can't someone else have a different way of doing thing instead of your idea?

>It just struck me that I find some >code on the Net which I've written, >and where my name is removed from the >Author's credits

If I had posted the code with your name also, you might be telling me that other people reading the code _may_ think this code is your idea (instead of editing the config file _easily_). You would have told me at that point that I misrepresent the your ideas.

I can only try to do it within my time constraints. As I told before since the upstream has monochrome and config file editing ease" may be nobody needs this plasmoid. Not everyone has time and so many laptops to run kde-trunk to update it frequently.

I have great respect for all of you kde-devs, but please allow others to express their ideas. Next time I edit the code I will add your name. Is this fine? Anything else?

I created this to have the monochrome icons. No hidden agenda.

>up with bugfixes from upstream?

I just made it for some my laptop at that time to have monochrome icons and time remaining. Since the upstream has monochrome may be nobody needs this plasmoid.

The reason I removed it was not because I am selfish but I did not want anyone to file bug report to you and annoy you. I am being polite. I can now add a big statement that you are original author of this applet :-) if you need the more publicity!

>The original applet already supports >showing the

I did see that. (BTW I read planetkde, planetubuntu, dot.kde everyday) But remember not every one reads your blog. I made this applet to show the time remaining directly - normal users do not want to edit config files!

It works in my laptop so I wanted to help others that may use it. Is this a problem for you?

There are many things in KDE -SC that do not work depending on the computer but it is OK and acceptable. Life is like that!

Since you have admin privileges please delete the project if you think it does bad for KDE SC.

Again, I am not looking for money or so from the author name. Perhaps do you mean that I should not have published it after making changes? - Dec 30 2010

Can you logout or better reboot.

$ kde4-config -v
Qt: 4.7.0
KDE Development Platform: 4.5.00 (KDE 4.5.0)

Does it compile?

Right-click on system tray and select Systemtray settings. you can select the new plasmoid there.

Check what version of KDE you are having?

Try in a terminal

$ kde4-config -v
Qt: 4.7.0
KDE Development Platform: 4.5.00 (KDE 4.5.0)

Or look in Konqueror -> Help -> About Kde

Which version is it?
for plasmoid-0.4 you need kde4.5

If you have old version of kde then use 0.3 - Aug 17 2010

Thanks for the suggestion.

May I request you to perhaps send a patch?

Unfortunately, I am having very busy work these days. - Jul 30 2010
perhaps you can remove the power adaptor (wait a minute) and post the plasmaengineexplorer

some batteries show zero with power adaptor connected.
- Jul 29 2010
the reason for me to do this plasmoid is that I would like to see the time (my opinion).

These icons are the new icons of kde SC. They are not my icons.

If you want to old icons then you can use the previous version of plasmoid. - Jul 29 2010
If you read the description:

$> plasmaengineexplorer --engine powermanagement

Select powermanagement and you should see Battery-> has Battery -> true

Can you type this in a Konsole and paste the output for me here in comments:
$> solid-hardware query 'IS Battery'

May be you can logout or restart the machine?

Does the standard battery applet detect the battery? - Jul 22 2010
Could you try plasma-batterytime-monochrome-0.3.tar.gz - hope it is fixed.

This plasmoid is very nice and useful.

But may I "politely" request you to have simple background or default one while making the screenshot. It is easier to see and appreciate the plasmoid.

see related info.

Please read FAQ - Mar 25 2010
You should avoid running plasmoid as root. Check the permissions of the files inside your prefix:

for example: if you installed with
kde-config --prefix

then change permissions for the files to
chmod o=rxX to the files below.

/usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/rssremix/background.svgz - Mar 24 2010
I do not know if it is possible to run kde-plasmoid in gnome. I do not know what is the answer. - Mar 19 2010
until I fix this bug, just edit the file header.cpp and
delete the line 63:

once again install this. logout and login to refresh.

Hope this works. Please let me know if this solves the problem. - Feb 24 2010

The new version released in Dec will have a transparent background _even_ if desktop effects are disabled. - Dec 18 2009
it does not read this file /usr/share/apps/rssnow/feeds

install akregator and whatever feeds you have there will be available in rssremix

Thanks - Oct 01 2009
Hmm... I have no idea why it does not work. can you type:
$ echo $KDE_SRC
and try to put the files inside this dir. Or try to set $KDE_SRC to both system kde4 and your local install directory. - Jul 24 2009

Step 1: go to yahoo weather -> to your selected city

Step 2: click on the RSS icon (on the right side)

Step 3: look for the city code on the URL.

Yahoo terms and conditions state that "for using their feed " the user have to put it. If you do not want it you can look in the .cpp file and comment that line. Put a "//" in front. line 359: in file plasma-simpleweatherforecast.cpp - Feb 24 2009

The problem happens if you no web connection when you login.

1. remove internet connection

2. logout and login. wait for desktop to load completely.

3. reconnect to internet.

Could you get in touch with the kde-devel (IRC) and integrate this into kde-plasma-addons ? This is a great plasmoid. May you want to read what is the copyright/license information of accuweather if it is bundled with KDE.

It will be a very valuable addition to KDE - Feb 18 2009
