Hi all,

Thanks, Nikita, for the update. Make progress (v0.1.3) now works with the KDE 4.6 series (on my Kubuntu 10.10, at least).

A few notes on the installation:
a. I was not able to in install via the "Get New Stuff" dialogue.
b. I was not able to install by downloading the plasmoid and using the "Install Widget from local file" option.

Hopefully it will just work for you, but, for those of you having problems to install, here is how I proceeded.

1. Uninstall any previous instances of Make Progress!

2. Check there are no related files in (delete related files if existent)

3. Download the plasmoid file from:

4. Extract the plasmoid file (you can use Ark)

5. Now we will proceed with a few terminal commands
$cd /path/to/directory/make-progress-0.1.3/
$plasmapkg -i make-progress-0.1.3.plasmoid

6. Now you should find the Make Progress! plasmoid in your list of plasmoids.

7. If all works, you can now delete the the directory:

Hope this doesn't sound too confusing and that this description helps someone.

Line 155 in main.js seems to be:


All error messages seem to be related to $.i:

Result of expression'$.i' [undefined] is not an object.

Any idea on what is going on?

Thanks in advence.

Hi again,

I managed to install the plasmoid by decompressing the plasmoid file, cd to the folder and then running:

plasmapkg -i make-progress-0.1.1.plasmoid

However, when I try to use it, the area of the plasmoid displays:

"Error in contents/code/main.js on line 155."

and a bunch of other error that I cannot read (they overlap each other).

Thanks again,

First of all thanks for the plasmoid, it is very useful.

However, the plasmoid has disappeared and will not install after I updated Kubuntu 10.10 to KDE SC 4.6.

After downloading the plasmoid file and trying to add it to the available plasmoids with "Install widget from local file" I get a message error saying that the plasmoid did not install.

Is this a known problem with KDE SC 4.6 or is is it a Kubuntu issue (or something completely different)?

Thanks in advance for your help and thank you again for the plasmoid.

I'm sorry I didn't follow up on my initial post. I'm very busy at the moment. The truth is I uninstalled the widget. When I get the time I'll retry and send the outputs. - Nov 02 2009

After following the instructions I don't get the widget in the plasmoid list. Instead I get a .desktop file. If I execute that I get the following message:
The desktop entry of type
is unknown.
I'm using kde 4.3.1 (kdemod) on Arch Linux.

Thanks for your time,
