Where would one put general requirements for plasmoids? For example I think that a plasmoid should be able to glue itself to a normal window, e.g. a kopete chat-window and act as "plug-on", i.e. communicate with the chat-window and e.g. display the buddy-icon of that chat-partner or contact-details, such as new email received by kmail etc.

So plasmoids would have to be able to start automatically when a new chat-window opens and glue themselves to it.

start by discussing it on the panel-devel at kde dot org mailing list where this is on-topic. please be prepared with actual "how this can be achieved" technical details.

I don't know where to report this so I'll do so here: the notice on that links to this wiki links to "Projects/Plasma/" (note the trailing slash), which is a non-existing page, the right one being "Projects/Plasma".

Fixed. Trailing slashes redirect to pages without trailing slashes. --Dhaumann 12:50, 20 August 2007 (CEST)

== Plasmoids should be able to float above other windows

If i am browsing with a maximized firefox and would like to keep myself updated with data provided by some plasmoid then it should be able to float above firefox

For example file changes. I believe there is some plasmoid for keeping track of changes made to files and directories. If i am browsing the internet with a maximized firefox window then i can not minimize firefox everytime to update myself for file changes. Instead the plasmoid should be able to float above firefox window so i can do both the things simultaneously. You should be able to set the transparency independently for each plasmoid.

This is a V E R Y I M P O R T A N T usability issue.

Important Plasmoids

I think a plasma desktop should be come with an essential group of plasmoids. I suggest the following:

    1- Todo list or say Tasks
       a nice place to reminding you what you should do.
    2- Calender 
       No need to more explanations
    3- Clock
      a small and eye candy clock on the system tray
    4- Weather Forecast or information
      to alter you what are happing outside your room.
    5- Connections information
      to visualize the connection you have. Well, let say this plasmoid answer    this question: " Does my computer connected to the net?"

You can add more if you wish
