Plasma 4 Extensions by strobeam 44 comments

I had the same problem. The reason is that 'make install' put the plasmoid's files under /usr/local, but my KDE installation only looks in /usr for plasmoid-related files. For folks who build their own KDE from development snapshots, this works great because their KDE files are already under /usr/local, but if you're running an official KDE release your files will be under /usr.

I worked around this by symlinking the three files in build/install-manifest.txt to the corresponding directories under /usr. As soon as I did this, I was able to see the plasmoid in the Add Widgets list.
