Messy, unsorted comments, posted without a proper title

I noticed that to successfully install the plasmoid the kdelibs5-dev package is required. Otherwise CMake throws an error and doesn't compile source code. Jakub 15:56, 27 April 2009 (UTC)


Maybe I have messed something up, but for me copying applet's shared object file (.so) to $KDEDIR/lib will not work (plasma gives: "Could not find requested component: applet_name"). If I copy same file to $KDEDIR/lib/kde4 plasma will find that.


In the "The .desktop file" section, the X-KDE-ServiceTypes=Plasma/Applet is right? Because, if you look at the source code of the default widgets of KDE4.1 you see: ServiceTypes=Plasma/Applet I will edit the page to conform this.

Everything works except the install, which puts the results in /usr/local. KDE does not search those directories. A small section on how to modify the cmake input file appropriately would be appreciated.

QRectF boundingRect()

There are some infos about a QRectF boundingRect() method, but no such method defined in the actual code, is that normal ?

maybe setContentSize would be better than resize there... Chani 15:44, 11 February 2008 (CET)

I was wondering the same thing. I just posted the question in the kde-devel mailing list. Augustin 07:20, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
