Maybe you should try libvisual-0.2.0 ... the api is inconsistent iirc and could be the issue. - Apr 13 2007
Yeah no problem, it is of course GPL. Though you might want to take a look at my reply to the first comment, as there is a link to the example I based this plugin off of which probably would do you more justice than my plugin. :) - Mar 09 2007
Hmm could be that your system doesn't use pkg-config? This is how I set it up for testing for libvisual.
You can try this:

In comment out:

and in src/ add to the very top of the file:
LIBVISUAL_LIBS="-lpthread -lm -ldl -lvisual"

Hopefully that helps you compile, let me know if that doesn't work. - Mar 09 2007
I thought about that, but then I wouldn't be able to use a QGLWidget for that, thus wouldn't be embeddable in the applet. Amarok, xmms and some other apps use SDL or some other lib for their own libvisual plugins which can do that. If you want to make your own I based mine off this simple and neat tutorial which can probably be easily adopted for any other system here: - Mar 09 2007

Hmm I don't know if this exists in 3.4.x and below, but if you go to:
Control Center -> KDE Components -> Component Chooser;
You can set the Web Browser to what you want... ie firefox, opera, or whatever.
Once that is set, the KDeskBar will open the search in the default browser.
Hope that helps. :) - Jan 14 2006
I updated it so that it displays properly on larger panels, if that's what you were refering to?
Only problem is that it doesn't display well on vertical panels. - Jan 07 2006
