KDE 4 Plasmoid Fun

Well, it is almost bedtime, but before I went, I wanted to show off my KDE 4 desktop as it stands right now. Note, I do not use all of those plasmoids, I was just playing to see what all was working. Thus far, weather and temperature (cpu) are the only ones not working for me, but I am sure after further tweaking I can get them to work. Well, w/o further ado, here you go:

KDE 4 Desktop

What you are seeing is the trashcan, battery indicator, network connection, calculator, comic strip from the web, clock, hardware info, and KDE twitter. So, now that I have a Twitter account, feel free to follow me.

    The Image link is broken

  • Stefan

    yeah, fix it! fix it! :o)

  • Wow! Cool! πŸ˜€

  • 404 on the image πŸ™

  • Zyga

    Broken image, come on!

  • Seems to be a KDE4 cover-up conspiracy. Two posts on Planet Ubuntu this week professing to show us the desktop, and no full-size pictures to be found yet. πŸ˜‰

  • Out of curiosity, is this Foresight? πŸ™‚

  • I knew you would come around to twitter. They always do.

    Welcome to the obsession.

  • KDE4 is really starting to look very usable. I’m trying to compile it on my Gentoo machine, but I keep running into errors.

  • Jackflap

    Image is still broken

  • BAH! Sorry everyone. When it uploaded, it was set to 600, I fixed it on the server. I apologize! Now you can see it all big and stuff πŸ™‚

    @Og: Couple more days…int and I are talking about how to install the KDE4 packages πŸ™‚ But I do have it built from SVN on Foresight as well πŸ™‚

  • I’m still getting a 404.

  • Try now Trevor…the WP Cache needed to update first, I should have just deleted the cache after the change…sorry again πŸ™‚

  • Ahh, and everyone knows me as the “guy who hates firefox”, the reason I have firefox, just in case I get challenged, is because Konqueror was constantly crashing on me last night. Hell, I would hit the letter “p” and it would crash. So I am in the process of rebuilding KDE 4 on my laptop to see if that got straightened out.

    Is it possible to get rid of that thing in the upper right hand corner of the screen with the wrench on it? Is it gray? Is it skinnable? Will it adapt to match the theme of the desktop? When I install a theme package, will it be themed along with the rest of the window decorations? Will it have transparency? Can it be smaller or shaped differently? Will it be shiny like the rest of KDE4? Could it be in the notification area verses the corner of my desktop? Will it go away in the final release of KDE4?

    I am just curious… This is the only major thing I am not liking from the videos and screenshots that I have looked at so far. It doesn’t seem to fit in with the rest of the desktop. Otherwise, KDE4 is looking pretty sweet!

    Thanks in advance,

  • @BrokenCrystal: I don’t know if the Plasma toolbar thing will be there after the release or if it is just temporary. I haven’t looked into it much nor paid it much attention. Like you, I hope something can be done with it if it does stay.

  • The time is showing my favorite band

  • dude, is 311 still jamming? I seen them in concert in the mid 90s when I was in the military. Seen them and Biohazard, they freakin’ rocked!

  • nnidza

    I am really in love with this wallpaper…
    Can someone please send it to my email:
    Thanks anyway…

    KDE is just looking good πŸ™‚

  • What additional packages i need to puts Hardware Info or Network Activity plamoids on the desktop?
