Orkut plasmoid is a simply webview showing the mobile version of Orkut. It uses a flake iphone user agent to display the page correctly. This is mostly based on the facebook widget written by nferenc and modified by aderocha.

plasmapkg -i orkut.zip

this is the output I got after installing the package

sam@sam-desktop:~/Downloads$ plasmapkg -i 127451-Orkut.zip
plasmapkg(27413)/libplasma Plasma::PackageStructurePrivate::createPackageMetadata: No metadata file in the package, expected it at: ""
Successfully installed /home/sam/Downloads/127451-Orkut.zip

and moreover I couldn't able to get any orkut basic login page, reload the page or even the ORKUT SETTINGS is also not working ..I mean I couldn't get any settings ...all I get is blank widget .

if this is not the correct way to use it then please shed some light on using it

Do you have libqt4-webkit and plasma-scriptengin-webkit installed ? I tested this plasmoid on KDE 4.5 RC2 on kubuntu 10.04. I am not sure if it will work on any earlier version of kde 4.

go to ~/.kde/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/Orkut/contents/code and open main.py

Comment this part :

class FAgent(QtWebKit.QWebPage):
def __init__(self):
def userAgentForUrl(self, url):
return "Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Mobile/1A543a Safari/419.3"

also Comment these 2 lines:

self.page = FAgent()

Then try running the plasmoid using :

plasmoidviewer Orkut

If it starts fine, remove the comments from main.py and run the same command and send the error.

there is a scrolling issue with the plasmoids and top right corner ...I have heard that is plasma bug ..so I will wait for an update to clear this ...well if you have any workaround for this then please share with me

Thumb hotlink:

as one can see that the left top corner is disturbed by the scrolling in the orkut widget .

This effect is not alone the problem of your widget ..but it is a bug of plasma ..I read it in kde bugs list ..but if you have any workaround for it then please post it here

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.
