Plasma 4 Extensions by dkarnout 72 comments

Firstly thanks for the icons.

Secondly about the colors as you see I use the plasma default colors, so it is a plasma bug and there is no real solution by my part:
fcol = "color: " + Plasma.Theme.defaultTheme().color(Plasma.Theme.TextColor).name()
bcol = "background-color: " + Plasma.Theme.defaultTheme().color(Plasma.Theme.BackgroundColor).name()
Your static solution is the best in this case, for you and any other using a dark plasma theme.

I do not use a special IDE, I write in kwrite. As you saw mykosmos.py code, check my PCompletion class, which inherits PyKDE4.kdeui.KCompletion:
http://api.kde.org/pykde-4.7-api/kdeui/KCompletion.html
I also have a bug here: my autocompletion list works with keyboard arrows, but cannot select an item by clicking. I should fix it soon. I think i should change some properties in the KCompletionBox (maybe by passing the parent)
Thanks for your help! - Feb 23 2012

Could you try v0.93 to see if the colors are fixed? Thanks - Feb 21 2012

Firstly, thanks for the feedback.
About the bug, I had the text fields in mind for modifying an account, and the buttons for adding/removing. But this ability is almost unnecessary, so I will remove them; this confused me also sometimes!
About the color, I think I can fix it, but this does not happen to me so I will need your feedback again at next version.
Thanks! - Feb 20 2012

A lot of time since our last dialog, but if you still use it, from now on it gets the contacts via akonadi, so it may be helpful for you. Thanks for using - Feb 19 2012

Sorry, I am not going to fix it yet.
Debian stable includes KDE 4.4.5 in which mykosmos works perfectly.
Whenever a newer KDE version migrates at stable, I will then support mykosmos for newer KDE versions. - Dec 14 2011

α) Έχεις δίκιο, γνωρίζω το θέμα απλά τότε βαριόμουνα λίγο. Αν και το σχόλιό σου είναι κίνητρο για να διορθώσω το πρόβλημα, δυστυχώς δεν έχω χρόνο αυτό το καιρό. Ίσως στο μέλλον.

β) Ακριβώς για να κάνω απλό το προγραμματάκι, δεν ήθελα να έχει ρυθμίσεις, οπότε βρίσκει το 'standard contact resource' αυτόματα και ανακτά από εκεί πληροφορίες. Αυτό που ίσως σε βοηθήσει είναι να πάς:
System settings->Advanced->KDE resources
να διαλέξεις το contact resource που θέλεις (ή και να το προσθέσεις εάν δεν υπάρχει στη λίστα) και να πατήσεις 'Use as standrard'.

Iσως κάποια στιγμή υλοποιήσω τις επιθυμίες σου, ευχαριστώ για το σχόλιο - Feb 02 2011

Thanks for the plasmoid, i use it every day.
At metadata, when for example artist and title exists, but not album, it doesn't add a new line.
I believe that you should always add <br><br> before every metadata, and just remove the first 8 characters of infoData string, in generateInfoData(). This would also make your code simpler. - Dec 02 2010

Just a note:
This works only if your address book is a file.
A better approach is to export your addressbook at the vCard file "~/.kde/share/apps/kabc/std.vcf" by KAddressBook.
Thank you. - Nov 29 2010
mykosmos plasmoid

Plasma 4 Extensions by dkarnout 72 comments

Thank you for using this plasmoid.
mykosmos loads data from file: "~/.kde/share/apps/kabc/std.vcf"
Since kde4 uses akonadi as default, kaddressbook does not save your contacts in that file by default, but somehow you can change that (obviously not by following my previous instructions)
while i don't have time to search about that, i am not intending to fix that at the moment but maybe in the future.
What you could do is to edit that file by kwrite (or by a vcf editor? does that thing exists?). - Nov 07 2010

please if ~/.kde/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/mykosmos directory exists, remove it first.

Great plasmoid!

- it could be very interesting if user could add more items which could be scrolling like RSSNOW news do (arrows or mouse scrolling)

- what you said about currency is the most significant i believe. i think that krunner uses real-time values from ECB, so this should be easy for you.
Thanks again for your plasmoid - Oct 22 2010

could you try this below?

and please inform me if it worked

How many accounts do you use?
Does this happens from the first time you use it, or after a successful try and a dead long period?
Try to run it from terminal by typing 'plasmoidviewer mykosmos' and send output at my mail.

i have the default (dejavu sans) and works fine. Which is your distribution?

- try to run "plasmoidviewer mykosmos" and tell me what terminal prints.
- if you upgraded from an old version (before kwallet supported), try to remove all your accounts, close the configuration dialog, and add your accounts again.

waiting for your news.
thanks - Oct 26 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by dkarnout 72 comments

1) Have you kwallet enabled? Do you allow your plasma-desktop to open kwallet?

2) About fonts, go to system settings and select an appropriate font supporting greek (System settings -> Appearance -> Fonts -> Desktop) - Oct 25 2009
mykosmos plasmoid

Plasma 4 Extensions by dkarnout 72 comments

1) Check if you have installed package "plasma-scriptengine-python" (maybe at your distribution is named differently, which is your distribution?)

2) Try to run plasmoid by terminal by typing:
"plasmoidviewer mykosmos"
and write me the output.

- about your future request, it will be done, but at the moment i don't have time. Thanks - Oct 13 2009

A drawer-like kickoff plugin would be great. However, classic KDE Menu is also very good.

Plasma 4 Extensions by Lechio 574 comments

This taskbar plugin is really great. When you manage to make auto-hide appear on top of other windows, it would be also great to pop-up application launcher instead of opening applications:/ with dolphin. In that way bottom-panel could be eliminated at right corner.
This could be possible if in some way kickoff is loaded by plasma-desktop and by sending a dbus action to it.
Great job, thanks! - Sep 23 2009

As new pykde bindings' readEntry provide QVariants, your plasmoid cannot initialize.
I think this is solved by changing all your
readEntry(...) to readEntry(...).toString()
and all your int(readEntry(...)) to readEntry(...).toInt()[0]
but check it yourself, i may be mistaken. - Sep 22 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by dkarnout 72 comments

~/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc is the file that settings are saved.
1) If you can find your settings there, loading sector (init subroutine) has problem.
2) If after pressing "OK" at settings (after any change of course) and this file does not get updated, saving sector (okPr subroutine) has problem.
About add account dialog, if you can add and use an account, it works fine. The problem should be at saving or loading proccess.
Please check the file above and inform me.
Your KDE version is 4.3.1? - Sep 20 2009
mykosmos plasmoid

Plasma 4 Extensions by dkarnout 72 comments

Strange, it works fine to me.
Can you run it via plasmoidviewer (add an account, close it and run it again), and write the output here?
Maybe the same problem we met at loading..
can you try changing at lines 145-146
"buf1[1:]" to "QVariant(buf1[1:])"
and
"buf2[1:]" to "QVariant(buf2[1:])"

I did my best about colors (v0.83). Thanks for reporting.
I used Plasma.Theme Colours and fixed it. However, right-click pop-ups blend system colours with plasma colours, so these popups do not appear nice if you have a dark plasma theme combined with a light system-colour theme and vice versa.
Things will get better when/if plasma will have its own popup dialogs (right-click dialogs or dropdown lists).
As you can see at contact's dropdown for example, there is no scrollbar at all. These plasma bugs should be fixed sometime. - Sep 17 2009

Thanks for reporting:
1) Just fixed enter key bug. (v0.83)

2) An upstream bug? Plasma theme colors or css stylesheet problem maybe?. if somebody has as idea, is welcome. I don't think i can do something for that right now. However, it does not happen at every paste. - Sep 17 2009

Sorry bothering you again. I really appreciate your help as i cannot reproduce this error.
I just have to try solving this bug like blind so don't get mad if it wouldn't work again.
Please give a try at v0.82 if you have time. Thanks - Sep 16 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by dkarnout 72 comments

I think i fixed it.
If no accounts existed by previous versions, it could not initialize. Hoping that was the bug you reported, v0.81 should be fine to you.

Thanks!
About indicator, mycosmos does not provide such a feauture. However, i could do the following:
i can reversely count from 10 to 0 by every successful sent sms, but i cannot have known whether an sms is sent by another pc using the same account, or even by the official site. Although this makes sometimes mykosmos indication invalid, i will have a try.
Thanks again. - Sep 12 2009

i have selected at layout2 tab, Background:"None", and everytime plasma starts, background shown is "Default". To have no background again, i have to click on (already turned on) "None" radiobutton again.
To be more clear, it does not lose saved setting, it just do not look for the setting when it loads. - Jun 19 2009
