No, I had not. I've installed it and now it works.
Thank you. Now mi media info doesn't look like from the 90s :D

If you allow me a couple of sugestions, a preview (the same that Dolphin shows, for example) of the analyzed file would be a nice thing. It'd be very practical if you are comparing metadata from several files since it's way quicker and agile than looking for the title bar to read the file names.
Also, being able to resize the window would improve usability, I think.

Very nice addon, nonetheless. Thank you - Nov 25 2020
Mediainfo Service Menu

Dolphin Service Menus by alex1701c 7 comments

I tried this service because Mediainfo is a great program, but ugly as hell, so I thought this alternative UI seemed to be well integrated with KDE/Plasma.
The pity is that I cant make it work; well, partially. The generation of TXT and HTML works, but getting media (short or long) info, don't. Doesn't report any error either, just doesnt seem to happen anything.
Mediainfo, the original program, is installed and working well. - Nov 25 2020

Latte 0.9.11 here. My distro is Gentoo, which as a rolling release one, so there are no versions. I've updated the system about 6 hours ago so it should be running recent versions of everything, in case this info helps. And yes, I'm using TM v41.

Deleting resizeHeight.restart() effectively makes the preferences tool keep the 600px height I set, thanks. although the real size of Tiled Menu is still 0 grid colums x 404 px.

Thanks too for the alpha channel hint. I have installed your plasmoid just today and hadn't had the chance to see that tiles colos were also confgurable; I thought that "transparency" meant transparency for the entire widget.
Tile color transparency works well, BTW, in Latte Dock too. - Nov 25 2020

Oh, I didn't know that the plasmoids could behave diferently in Latte than in the native panel.

Yes, I'm using Latte Dock. I've created a Plasma panel just for testing, and TM works perfectly; well, I can't set transparency for the tiles either, but maybe I have to use some transparent Plasma desktop theme. In any case that's not very important, and the rest of customizations seem to work with no issues.

But the proposed fix for Latte hasn't improved much. I hope I've followed well your instructions:
I opened ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.github.zren.tiledmenu/contents/ui/Main.qml and deleted the line 149, and only that one, where it said ┬źresizeToFit.run()┬╗, and saved.
Then I "kquitapped" Plasmashell and terminated Latte Dock just in case.
Finally I relaunched Plasmashell and Latte.

The popup window size is the same than before, the default one; the only difference I see is that now, in the preferences tool, the grid columns value is the one I wanted to set, 6, to be precise, that value has now been kept; not so the height, which is is still 404px despite I set 600.
Anyway, this little change doesn't matter too much, because as I've said the popup window size and the number of grids is the same than before no matter what says the config tool.

I'm also on Plasma 5.20, BTW, Frameworks 5.76, but this seems to be related to Latte. - Nov 25 2020

Oh, I've forgotten to mention that Alt + Right click and drag also works but, as expected, once TM is hidden and shown again, I still get the default size.
It seems like it weren't saving the configuration to the corresponding config file and just keep it in memory as long as TM is visible - Nov 25 2020

I think there's a bug: I cant set the number of grid columns nor their size, better said, I can, but the plasmoid doesn't save the configuration: when I pop TM again, it shows the default values, with no grid columns. If I open again the TM preferences, efectively, Grid columns seeting " is "0 x 404 px".
The changes are applied as long as the plasmoid is visible, I mean if I open the configuration tool of Tiled Menu and then I pop it up so it's visible, grid columns changes are perfectly applied, but once TM hides, if I pop it again, said changes have disapeared and the default ones are used.

I have tried to edit the layout, modifying the values for the items "favGridCols" and "popupHeight" in the "Import/Export layout" section, but changes have no effect at all either and once TM is relaunched the user made changes have vanished as before.

So I tried to export my layout, again in the "Import/Export layout" section in the preferences, but there's no button/tool to save your layout or to load a saved one (if saving where possible). Is there some config file in ~/.config or something like that, that I can edit to make my preferences persists?

Thank you. Your widget should be the default Plasma launcher, when it lets the user adjust to his needs, of course, heheh.

PS: Transparency neither works, BTW.

Sorry, I had missed other two mistakes. Here's the last edition:

Spanish translation with corrected orthography, some wrong vocabulary and adapted some translations that weren't bad but too long and too literal some times.

Plasma 5 Applets by adhe 5 comments

Marvelous plasmoid! Should be included in Plasma by default.

Nevertheless, it could be improved by permitting the user to chose which theme to use. There are a lot in the preferences of Plasma, plus the ones that the user may customize, but Dynamic global themes only permits to choose between the default Breeze light and dark themes.

I dont give it a ten just for that limitation, that for users who have taken care in customizing their desktop is important, but apart from that, it deserves the highest rating.

Thanks a lot for such a good job! - Aug 24 2020
