Opened a bug report as well.

Oh, and the graphics driver is r600g (Mesa 8.0). - Jan 28 2012
How to reproduce:

Assuming that Bespin widget style is used, start any Qt application with OpenGL graphics backend, i.e., "dolphin -graphicssystem opengl". The application crashes. Changing widget style to, say, QtCurve fixes that, but I like Bespin more :) - Jan 28 2012

That's not enough. I actually had to add some libs to .pro file:

LIBS += -lmysqld \
-lcrypt \
-ldl \
-lrt \
-lssl \

Using Archlinux. Compiles well, looks nice :)

Can we have a look at it? - Feb 08 2011
* Lines 8.-11.:
if [ -e /etc/rsyslog.conf ]; then
elif [ -e /etc/syslog.conf ]; then

If rsyslog.conf exists, syslog.conf is used and vice versa.

Should be:

if [ -e /etc/rsyslog.conf ]; then
elif [ -e /etc/syslog.conf ]; then

* Line 48:
cat >>/etc/syslog.conf <<EOF

On systems that utilizes rsyslogd, syslog.conf is ignored. Old bug that I pointed out earlier. Use $SL value determined earlier instead.

Should be:

cat >> $SL <<EOF

In other words, plasmoid ships with an old version of script. Look at the script I posted in pastebin few comments above. - Feb 06 2011
Even two of them. - Feb 05 2011
The script has a mistake. Take a look at it, please. - Feb 05 2011
First of all, Fedora 14 uses rsyslog. Your script does check for appropriate config file, but for some reason doesn't use it. Instead, syslog.conf is created, which is going to be ignored here. Corrected that.


Seems like plasmoid is now working well. - Jan 25 2011
UID version does work, but the rest of script doesn't. Here, I edited it a bit so that it at least creates fifos.

The plasmoid itself doesn't work either, need to investigate the reason. - Jan 22 2011
On Fedora 14, $USERNAME is empty, but $USER always contains the username that has been used to log into system. Solved this by prepending a line "export USERNAME=$(whoami);" to script. - Jan 21 2011
Neither of mkintfifos versions worked for me on Fedora 14, KDE 4.5.5. Keeps saying that I'm not a root, although that's not the case. Of course, no /var/run/interceptor has been created and the plasmoid isn't functioning. - Jan 20 2011

Currently it is not possible to implement this, as the panel is a container for widgets and the widget cannot go beyond panel's borders. The closest way to do this is as it is now, i. e., by using PopupApplet. - Jan 20 2011

I think the only feature needed for ST to fulfil this idea is the ability to show tasks for *certain* desktop, not only the current one. That way, for every desktop one could use it's own ST instance. So you have to make a feature request for ST to see this idea embodied in software. - Jan 20 2011
Smooth Tasks has ability of putting tasks in more than one row, just checked that to make sure. As for desktop thing, you can use Desktop Pager to switch between desktops, but ST will filter tasks depending on currently selected desktop.

I would say that this idea already has been implemented, at least in most part.

In KDE SC 4.5, every desktop even can have it's own wallpaper and a selection of plasmoids, which I find to be a more convenient feature than Activities. - Jan 20 2011
Well, if I get your point correctly, Smooth Tasks has an option "Only show tasks from the current desktop". As for batch operations, grouped tasks can be closed with a single middle-click. Desktop count usually doesn't change that often to be worth of a dedicated task manager option.

To be honest, the only feature missing in Smooth Tasks is launcher support, which will hopefully get implementet when KDE SC 4.6 comes out. - Jan 20 2011

What are advantages of Grouping Panel compared to an ordinary one? - Jul 25 2010
Could it be possible to add containers to panel, thus hiding associated widgets? That way I could add to panel those plasmoids that don't use PopupApplet widget. - Jul 17 2010
IMHO, this is the most useful KDE improvement since Smooth Tasks. Especially Tabbing group helps reduce desktop clutter by hiding away less needed plasmoids.

No crashes so far, the only minor problem was that some fullscreen desktop container is shown when enabling Grouping desktop activity for first time. Had to close it several times before it disappeared completely without returning at next Plasma startup. Fingers crossed. - Jul 17 2010

Setting it all up is a bit tricky because of bugs in Grouping Desktop, but after all is set up, it turns out to be a great plasmoid.

Some wishes for future releases:

* There is virtually no plasmoid around here showing something useful while cover is not available or Amarok is not running. Having an empty widget on desktop is rather unpleasant, so it would be nice to use custom image while no cover is available.

* When Amarok is not running, pressing "Play" button should start it and, if possible, play the first song in playlist. - Jul 04 2010
The widget crashes plasma upon reopening Amarok when it has previously exited while music is playing. - Jul 04 2010

I haven't looked at source of this plasmoid, but usually crash is caused by accessing uninitialized pointers. Maybe you're trying to assign a value to such a pointer or trying to delete it? - Apr 13 2010

Thanks for implementing icons. Since your plasmoid now shows song information too, in my opinion it surpasses SimpleStream plasmoid in terms of functionality. - Mar 28 2010
Works very well, but may I suggest to add an optional feature of using icons along with text (or without text)? This could make plasmoid more appealing. - Feb 19 2010

Plasmoid works well, yet turning is slow, as you already know, and also mouse cursor at clicking moves to the point it was previously released.

And, yes, you should try using OpenGL for that, if possible. It would reveal almost endless possibilities, like creating a scene of room and putting some plasmoids here and there. It would be a true 3D desktop. - Mar 07 2010

Oh, right. I was using v0.1. Updated, now it works very well.

It would be interesting to see how this will evolve (assuming it will) and which direction development could take. - Feb 16 2010
When resizing a plasmoid, it doesn't adjust to new plasmoid size. This is probably just because of incompletion of plasmoid, I assume.

Secondly, if plasmoid is reloaded, it doesn't show anything, leaving plasmoid window completely empty. - Feb 15 2010

Well, you're probably right about that, but it would be nice for plasmoid to display some command's output. Of course, that can be also achieved by defining cron job which then outputs command to text file, but such approach wouldn't be that convenient. - Jan 07 2010

In short, this plasmoid requires a file /var/log/emerge.log to be present in order to run at all. Creation of that file requires root privileges.

Also plasmoid name is a bit misleading because it can only display text files. - Jan 06 2010
