Hi paulocr,

this is a plasmoid written in python. You do not have to compile it. Just open you "Add Widgets..."-Dialog from your panel (i.e.) and choose "Install New Widgets" .> "Install Widgets From Local File". Select the plasmoid-file you downloaded and it should work.

Make sure you have python, python-kde-bindings and python-plasma-bindings installed.

Also please keep in mind that it (right now) works only on ArchLinux smoothly. - May 07 2009
Thanks for trying again and for your patience. Please temove the * from *.pid (just the suffix, no wildcards). Then it should detect the running daemons correctly.
When I click on a listed daemon it opens up kdesu. You do have kdesu available on kubuntu, haven't you?
Maybe it is better to continue working on the via email and ot fill up this page too much (I had nearly overlooked your post). Would you mind contacting me that way? My address in in the readme.txt within the plasmoid-file. - Apr 24 2009
Thanks for all your information. I just talked to brillux13 about adding a version suitable for python < 2.6. I am also working on finding out how to get the running daemons on debian/?ubuntu. I already have an idea and it should not be difficult to adopt the plasmoid. Do you have a file named xyz.pid for a running daemon xyz in /var/run?

Just two more quick thoughts. The error seems to arise from a MessageBox called with a wrong parameter. For now please make sure that the directory

/var/run/daemons

exists, when you add the applet. I will upload a corrected version later today.

I am not at all sure that it works with Kubuntu out of the box though. As I said I will have a look at it.

Since the file is just a zip-file you can open it with Ark (for example) and have a look at the source inside. - Apr 22 2009
Thank you both for your comments. I do not have an installed Kubuntu available, but I will look into it as soon as possible. Can you see any more messages in your ~/.xsession-errors (hope this exists in Kubuntu)?
I will also add a source package the next few days. - Apr 22 2009
