What version of KDE are you using?

Maybe this helps: http://code.google.com/p/veromix-plasmoid/wiki/VeromixComponents#KDE_4.4_compatibility

I have the same problem when veromix is added in systray. Adding to desktop works okay.

Which service are you talking about?

When I reboot my computer, the plasmoid states "script initialization failed." But if I run
Quote:cd /usr/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/veromix-plasmoid; plasmoidviewer
in terminal, it works fine. And when I put the plasmoid on the desktop normally it works. But then on reboot it doesn't work again.

(I installed it via the arch linux AUR)

UPDATE: I've finally got it work!
Sorry for my multiple reply, I'm hoping I have not piss you off :)

I successfully installed Veromix with the plasmapkg -i method (previously I was trying with cmake and with the plasma dialog itself...my bad...I'm still new to kde)!

I started with the latest version and went back through the previous versions...I found out that 13.0, 12.1 and 12.0 didn't work at all (gave me a big "X" on the panel without messages); 11.2 gaves a message saying to remove and re-add veromix, but the trick did not work; finally, 11.1 said the same but instead, this time, the trick worked!

11.1 is the most recent version working on Debian Squeeze.

I'm truly sorry and I thank you very much, hoping that, at least, my test could help you in some way.

Bye!

Hi! Does anyone know if there is a way to make veromix work on Debian Squeeze? I successfully installed the wheezy package, but when I add the widget to the panel it does not work...Thanks!

Hi

squeeze has kde < 4.5 right? Then it sould be possible to change the line

ServiceTypes=Plasma/Applet,Plasma/PopupApplet

to

ServiceTypes=Plasma/PopupApplet

in /usr/share/kde4/apps/plasma/plasmoids/veromix-plasmoid/metadata.desktop

Afterwards you will have to reload plasma (or logout and login again).

http://code.google.com/p/veromix-plasmoid/wiki/VeromixComponents#KDE_4.4_compatibility

_

Alternatively you can install veromix in your home-directory (e.g. download the .plasmoid file from here - I didn't test the newest version with old kde versions, but older versions should work: http://code.google.com/p/veromix-plasmoid/downloads/list?can=1&q=&colspec=Filename+Summary+Uploaded+ReleaseDate+Size+DownloadCount)

Please let me know if you succeed..

Thank you very very much for the reply!

Squeeze ships with KDE 4.4.5, but unfortunately the first workaround does not work...

To proceed with the second suggestion, which version do you suggest to try?

Report

Well I tried to install a bunch of old versions but I could not install them, they all gave me error during the install process.

So I went back to the debian package, applied workaround #1 and tried to debug a little...here's my output:


$ plasmoidviewer
plasmoidviewer(4297)/kdecore (services) KServiceFactory::findServiceByDesktopPath: "" not found

What about having the meter in a form of a colored bar that would fit in this thin space of a slider row, behind the knob?

agree - I already tried to use plasma.BarMeterHorizontal some time ago but it always crashed the whole desktop (known bug). I will try again.. I don't want to implement it myself :-(

Hello.
Something strange happened. I installed the plasma and put it in the system tray (Kubuntu 11.04 64bit). Everything worked until I rebooted getting a plasma-desktop crash. After uninstalling veromix the problem is solved. But I do not know if it really could be a problem caused by Veromix. I attaching the log that I got when trying to re-launch plasma-desktop:

Is this the log with the veromix installed? There is no output from veromix in it. I also just rebooted (same system: KUbuntu amd64) and got no problem.

Hope you give veromix another try .-)

Hello.
>Is this the log with the veromix installed? There is no output from veromix in it.
Yes.

It is always reproducible.
After installing Veromix and rebooting, I get a black screen and the report of plasma-desktop crash with signal: Segmentation fault. Running plasma-desktop from console I get the crash again. Uninstalling veromix-plasmoid I can run plasma-desktop.
I forget to say I have KDE 4.6.4
I must say I have a system with many things installed. As pulseaudio-equalizer using "Multiband EQ LADSPA Plugin" with which sometimes I have problems and the system does not load it by default. That's why I'm not sure the problem is directly related to Veromix, but I'm sure that always happens when I install Veromix, and disappears when I uninstall.
The following is the crash report information:

I have the same problem (KDE 4.6.2). Unable to use the plasmoid because plasma-desktop crashes with segmentation fault on startup. After uninstalling the plasmoid everything is fine again.

there is no reference to veromix in this output. If veromix does not appear in the plasmoidbrowser (or plasmoidviewer -l) please try to install another plasmoid (for instance gmail-plasmoid) - just to narrow down the problem. A next step could then be to create a new user-profile and install veromix there...

I hope you can someday integrate pulseaudio equalizer in this plasmoid.
