Description:

Small web view which does everything you would expect from a desktop widget:

- If you click on real links taking you to a new location, your browser is opened
- It has an auto-refresh option, but does not "twitch" during update as the stock web browser plasmoid does
- You can simply invert the colors to blend the website in (e.g. google calendar)
- When the mouse is inside the plasmoid, auto-refresh is turned off

Please look on the github page https://github.com/x-quadraht/smoothwebview for most recent updates!

Running Debian Sid. I LOVED this app in KDE 4.6.5 for the google calendar functionality. However when I "upgraded" to KDE 4.7.4 I can no longer re-size/remove SmoothWebView as the side panel menu no longer comes up. I tried uninstalling and re-installing with no luck. Unfortunately this plasmoid now defaults to a TINY window that can not be resized (nor removed), which makes the plasmoid useless to me. I hope the developer can fix this as I really miss Google Calendar (I need more than JUST the agenda so many other plasmoids only provide) on my desktop.

You mean the sidebar which appears at each plasmoid and which contains the buttons "Resize", "Rotate", "Config" and "Close" (those buttons only have icons, no text)? If so, then you can have those sidebars back by right-clicking on the panel and choosing "Unlock Widgets". Alternatively you can right-click on the desktop itself and select that option, or you can left-click on the activity label at the top right of your desktop (which has the name of the current activity, by default "Desktop" or something like that) and select that option.

I think rafa412 instead encountered a bug in the event handling of SmoothWebView. It's been fixed in the version on github though.

The version pulled from git works in KDE 4.7.4! Thank you, nice to have this plasmoid back!

Hi,

Newest source code is available at https://github.com/x-quadraht/smoothwebview.

Please try if your issues are resolved with that version.

I'll add a link to the github page above, obviously I forget to upload updates here...

Hi, excellent widget, exactly what I was looking for! The only thing I'd like to see is persistence for the scroll position across sessions. After logging in, the page is always displayed at the top. Would it be difficult to store the offset across sessions?

Hi,

nice idea.
I'll look into it, should be quite easy.
