Fading Calendar

Fading Calendar

Fading Calendar

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  1024
Submitted:  May 3 2010
Updated:  Sep 26 2010


A simple plasmoid displaying the days of the calendar in one column, with several fading options.
No mouse or keyboard interactions.
Quite useless, only intended to decorate the desktop.

update version 0.1.1
A new option: "circle shape" was been added.
The configuration is however a bit tricky: the general option "origin" defines the center of the circle, and the x position should then be negative (let's say -600). The size of the rectangle and the text horizontal shift should then be higher to appear on the screen (let's say 630 and 640).
Space between rectangle turns out to be useless in this "circle" configuration, and you have to play with "angle" and "rectangle width" to get a proper plain background.

Todo list:
* \"right side of the screen\" option
* other options


update version 0.1.1: circle shape

update version 0.1.2: small debug, plasma background

update version 0.1.3: the plasma background theme can be used for the rectangles

update version 0.1.4:
- WE days
- default color = plasma theme color
- fix the config for multiple instances (with an ugly workaround)
CAUTION: this version resets the config parameters w.r.t. the old versions

1. Can I have separate settings for separate calendars? I have 4 calendars, because I have one activity per desktop, 4 desktops, and one calendar per desktop. When I set the colors for each calendar, it looks pretty until I reboot or restart Plasma Desktop. After that, the last settings remain in effect for all my calendars. Please, can you correct that?

2. Can I have a separate font/size for the weekday and the day text?

Finally, I've found some time to work on this.

1. Done. It's an ugly workaround, but it works and I haven't found any documentations on the subject (maybe I haven't seek enough).

2. Done. The "w-e days" style can be customized. And if today is a w-e day, the "Today" style is applied.

I try this plasmoid, but it does not appear to save its configuration (number of days and colors).

I've changed the way of dealing with config in the latest version (to satisfy other demands), and I guess what I have done is not clean at all.
However, it seems to work on KDE 4.5.5, but maybe the previous or further versions don't deal with plasmoid id as I was expecting.

Can you provide me the kde version you are using ? (and do you use a lot of other plasmoids ? does this problem appear also when this plasmoid is the only one running ? ...)

If you want to fix this quickly, you can go back to the previous way of dealing with config by editing the main.py file (~/.kde/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/fading-calendar/contents/code)
Just change:
on lines: 20, 55, 70 and 98
(but then, the problem raised previously (no different config for multiple plasmoid) reappears)

I will try to find a better solution, but unfortunately, I don't have time for the moment to dig into kde and qt docs or to spend a lot of time in experimenting myself.

Thanks a lot for answering :)

Currently, the only thing that is not saved appears to be size, but i am unsure why it didn't just save. Maybe kde crashes during shotdown, it sometimes does. But other applets does save their config without problems - maybe they do so by saving immediately? most applets seems to use plasma for saving their configuration, fading calender does not.

Apart from that, I do like your applet, it provides valuable information in a relatively discrete manner :)

I have fixed the problem with size restoring, by simply commenting away the line in your init method that sets the size. Plasma takes care of it. The line is 121 in main.py:

#self.resize(self.param.width, self.param.height)

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.
