could you make a sticky option show that it stays maximized if I click somewhere else on the desktop? - Mar 30 2010
Would you consider adding a filter so that proxy programs would not be shown? Ex. would be the use of Privoxy, not only does the browser show but also Privoxy, which appears redundant, at least to me.

thanks, - Mar 30 2010
way kool but it's shows too much & takes too much space if left on the desktop. It would be less intrusive if it could be contracted to show just total traffic in/out and then when needed expanded (or hovered on) to show details - of course then it would be a program, not a plasmoid

well after an upgrade and kde4 restart the text is once again white but the progress meter is like a squished oval with a curve on top that goes from green to red as it widens but because of the light grey the %played is barely readable - could it be because I'm running a kde4.5 alpha/beta? - Mar 05 2010
I use a black desktop theme and earlier iterations used white text but now I have black text on a black background. Could you add a color chooser for text in settings?

just a thought (maybe a good one, maybe not)

found this greasemonkey script for FF that views the video in m44 using mPlayer or vlc plugins - what's should interesting about this is that it should allow hw acceleration using the gpu (if Nvidia's vdpau is present) something not available with Linux Flash (

currently I don't use the script because I use Opera and it doesn't seem to work there

right click and "compact mode" - duh! - Nov 19 2009
to me this is strange behavior

if I'm watching a video and wish to see search results in left panel switching tabs shouldn't change the video playing to the top video in the clicked tab - of course this is my opinion (ymmv) - Nov 19 2009
suggestion - that the left hand search panel can be hidden once playing starts

also, couldn't move the position bar to fast forward on a video not yet fully played

seems extreme to set interval to 2 minutes but if I may make a suggestion (or 2) consider posting on the the development sub-forum on the kde forums or contact a developer whose plasmoid works correctly like that of the lcd weather station plasmoid.

But thanks, this is my favorite weather plasmoid

- Nov 24 2009
After upgrading this week and changing form using ifup to knetworkmanager for network control the simple weather plasmoid doesn't display the weather (just a circle of balls) when kde starts. If I click on the plasmoid's settings and then ok the weather will show.

I'm thinking the problem is due from where in the boot process my dsl connection is made (during boot vrs load of kde) but the plasmoid should still find the connection even if it's not there when it first loads.

Sorry for late response

I didn't see that the option was in "profiles" and I was using a custom profile. Even though checked it wasn't working as it was set to "covers/$title" (which i guess I did?) but editing it fixed it and now it works


PS - wonder if filenames and "extra files" shouldn't have a default setting or be in the more global settings - Nov 17 2009
add a copy of the cover jpg to the directory created? - Oct 05 2009
just a note I compiled 72b1 and cover was retrieved correctly, also tested the "fetch cover" option and it too worked well.

1) the right click on the cover image to initiate the cover menu is not obvious
2) on the "fetch cover" window adding a editable search string would be nice
3) much nicer than what Amarok 2.2beta has, maybe you all could share
4) is the "title correction tool" new? also nice

strange but until today's kde update I had readable text in the plasmoid but now it's black on black. K Desktop Environment Version 4.3.3 (KDE 4.3.3) "release 182".

for me the default sound is not played for an "anonymous countdown".
It doesn't matter is I click or not the "play sound" button, for a sound to be played a file must be explicitly named - but it should use the "default for finished". The default sound file only seems to be for the predefined countdowns.


also be nice if there was a way to create a popup more visual by changing color and size - Nov 14 2009

would it be possible to allow selection of browser instead of using xdg-open? When I set my default app in systemsettings to use "opera --newtab" kid3 opens a new window with the default Opera settings (for tab bar, etc) - the first time I did this it even ran the Opera first run script.

Future suggestion/request use something akin to what audex does (maybe borrow the code) - it opens it's own window with possible covers then when selected it populates the picture tag field and (iirc) even drops a copy into the album's directory

again, thanks

yes and no

case 1) edit tag2 as described
rename filename from tag2
result filename correct

case 2) edit tag2 as described
rename tag1 from tag2
result tag1 tags NOT changed
AND tag2 reverts to pre edit

case 3) edit tag2 as described
rename filename from tag2

posted m4a issue as a bug on openSuse's bugzilla - Nov 08 2009
got it thanks

question why do other binaries that openSuse provides have m4a support? do they use a diff. library or do the others provide the support in their source.

sorry for all the hassle but kid3's the only tagger I feel comfortable with.

- Nov 08 2009
thanks, did as suggested and vbr's now fine but m4a's still blank. I recompiled the taglib src.rpm you pointed to.

rpm -q libmp4v2
rpm -q taglib
taglib-1.6.1-8.1.x86_64 (it is in the kde43 lib

since easytag is displaying m4a's shouldn't kid3?

thanks, - Nov 08 2009
If I open a .m4a file nothing shows in kid3. These are mp4/aac's correct and kid3 should process them (I thought earlier versions did).

Fyi mediainfo and easytag see the tags fine so I assume I have the proper lib's installed

ps - nice change log, any chance the need to open the edit box to edit the tags for multiple files simultaneously will be resolved?

thanks, - Nov 07 2009
dl'ed the new src and it built fine - thanks, why both a kid3 and a kid3-qt rpm

BUT it's crashing when trying to process vbr mp3's (if I convert them to cbr using pacpl then no issue). I filed a bug report through dr konqi to you. Crashes using both your src rpm and openSuse's

- Nov 07 2009
maybe openSuse specific?

File not found: /usr/src/packages/BUILDROOT/kid3-1.3-1.x86_64/usr/share/doc/kde4/HTML/de/kid3

--> I then changed kde4 to kde in the spec for the doc files and got this error:

Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files /usr/src/packages/BUILDROOT/kid3-1.3-1.x86_64
error: Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:

but I did get executable (though no rpm or src rpm but of course I have no clue as to what I'm doing so will wait for instalable rpm from Suse)

fyi - I posted on both the openSuse forum and kde forum and got back but 1 response which was:
"it sounds like this plasmoid is not using Phonon correctly, if it was sourced from KDE-Look or KDE-Apps then you need to inform the author that it doesn't work.

If they are using Xine or GStreamer directly...... well then it probably will have issues."

I updated to 4.3 final and now (not sure why) I am getting an error message when attempting to play "Playback failed because no valid audio or video outputs are available". Of course all the other players dragon, vlc, amarok, kaffeine play fine. I use xine as a backend and my soundblaster card as my output device.

had to dl and install dragon but it works fine and volume on mini is 80%, preferred sound device is sound card not phonom but all other players work fine

Sorry, I was trying "media-player" not mini-player plasmoid.

So I did install mini-player and now I see the filters, more controls and the timeline moving BUT no sound or video - I'm just assuming there's issues because of my running rc3, 64bit, xine and openSuse
