That's pretty cool. I didn't realize you could put it into a panel--I just have it on my desktop. Anyhow, I'm not actively working on this project. Best of luck modifying the code! If you come up with something, let me know! - May 11 2012
If you know a solution, please advise! Thanks! - Apr 13 2010
Yes, where you see all of those QColor() functions those are R,G,B,A values. I.e. red/green/blue/alpha. You'll see that in and Change those alpha values to what you like. I really should write a settings GUI... anyone know some simple code or have an easy to understand tutorial for that? - Mar 24 2010
Try installing python-dbus - Jan 20 2010
I actually developed this under KUbuntu 9.10. Do you have the plasma-scriptengine-python package installed? Do you get any error messages running it from the command line? From the terminal, unzip the file. Cd into the directory, and run plasmoidviewer with no command line arguments. You'll should see all of the debug output that way. - Nov 08 2009
The latest 0.04 version shouldn't have that same line in, rather it reads: def __init__(self, parent, group, buddy, alias, status_text="", name="", status="", picture=None, recent=0): Update your version and try again and let me know if the bug is still there, maybe it's something else causing it? - Nov 04 2009
Pick one of these three ways to install:
1. run "plasmapkg -i"; or,
2. Right click on your desktop, select Add Widgets, click on Install New Widgets then Install from a local file, select Plasmoid, click next, select the file, click finish; or,
3. Download and install directly from KDE's KDE-Look installer--search for PidginPlasmoid and click install. - Oct 31 2009

Does anyone else notice high CPU use (on my system ~10%) with kwin, xorg or plasma-desktop when using this plasmoid on KDE 4.4.90? I noticed that the paint plugin shows Smooth Tasks is constantly redrawing the icons. - Jun 29 2010
Thank you! That was exactly the problem! It now runs perfectly after re-compiling for KDE 4.3.80. I still have the same problem as you do on exit, but I think I can live with that until the author updates. - Dec 15 2009
Mikala, you're one above me! I can't run Smooth Tasks at all since my upgrade to KDE 4.3.80. Any ideas? Does a back trace help--I realize there's no debugging symbols?

I really wish someone would create a KDE version of this screenlet as a plasmoid. I love this screenlet! - Oct 12 2009
