Plasmoid is meant to show a progress of your tasks in a convenient form. You can have static progress states and set the completed part manually or you can use dynamic progresses that have a constant speed, timers or poll data from external sources. A supplemental data engine (installed separately) adds DBus interface to the plasmoid. This means you can access values from a command line and from any other program. This thing even let you control your script from the plasmoid (pause it or let it go).

You can have multiple progresses on one plasmoid. This keeps things organized in groups and saves a space. Plasmoid have a few visual interfaces and allows you to setup their style. Everything is done to give you the whole picture on your tasks and to let you manage your time better.

Another useful feature is an action that's executed when progress state becomes equal to 100%. It could be a message through a standard KDE notification system or launch of external program.

See detailed description and more screenshots on the homepage.

 Thanks + install tips

Hi all,

Thanks, Nikita, for the update. Make progress (v0.1.3) now works with the KDE 4.6 series (on my Kubuntu 10.10, at least).

A few notes on the installation:
a. I was not able to in install via the "Get New Stuff" dialogue.
b. I was not able to install by downloading the plasmoid and using the "Install Widget from local file" option.

Hopefully it will just work for you, but, for those of you having problems to install, here is how I proceeded.

1. Uninstall any previous instances of Make Progress!

2. Check there are no related files in (delete related files if existent)

3. Download the plasmoid file from:

4. Extract the plasmoid file (you can use Ark)

5. Now we will proceed with a few terminal commands
$cd /path/to/directory/make-progress-0.1.3/
$plasmapkg -i make-progress-0.1.3.plasmoid

6. Now you should find the Make Progress! plasmoid in your list of plasmoids.

7. If all works, you can now delete the the directory:

Hope this doesn't sound too confusing and that this description helps someone.

 Poll is not working for me

I am trying to (ab)use this plasmoid to meter cpu usage. I have created a script that calculates cpu usage and returns it as a number. When providing this script to Make Progress! plasmoid, it runs it right the first time but then it never gets runned again. Is there a way to fix that?

I have the same issue on KDE SC 4.8.3. It seems that something is broken in the system dataengine "executable", which is responsible for running this command. BTW, I receive these messages on console after the first run of the command 'date +%S':

Object::disconnect: No such slot JsAppletInterface::dataUpdated(QString,Plasma::DataEngine::Data)
Object::disconnect: (sender name: 'date +%S')

I'll try to create a testcase and file a bug to KDE Bugzilla. I don't see any way to workaround this, sorry...

 Add ticking sound while the timer is running

Could you please add some ticking sound while the timer is working?

With this feature the plasmoid could be used as an excellent pomodoro timer.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
