Plasmoid Script

Score 86%

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  1668
Submitted:  Oct 29 2009
Updated:  Jan 18 2012


This is a port of the PidginScreenlet to the KDE4 plasma desktop. This plasmoid simply shows your contacts from Pidgin on your KDE desktop. It is very rough around the edges and does not contain all of the features I wish it could. Patches, forks, tips and tricks welcome!

This project depends on plasma-scriptengine-python

TODO: write configuration dialog to configure allow configuring 1) displaying pics 2) showing search box 3) showing all offline contacts 4) showing groups 5) showing selected contacts, even if offline. Need help writing this, please submit patches!


0.01 - Initial public release
0.02 - Shows recent sign in/sign off, more minor display bug fixes
0.03 - Redesign: groups can be collapsed, chats initiated by double-clicking, Pidgin can be launched if it's not running, allows scrolling if list is too long
0.04 - Search all contacts quickly, fix for if Pidgin not running, added tool tips that show on mouseover of picture, icon for Pidgin not running, icons for buddies without buddy pics
0.04 - Updated with transparency. Released update without version bump (3/18/2010)

 Transparent background?

 by EstebanTristan on: Mar 24 2010
Score 50%


Now this plasmoid is working thanks to the last update.

I was wondering if it would be possible to make the background totally transparent or using a .png file that would be either 100% transparent or 80 transparent so that the plasmoid would be fully integrated on the desktop.

I don't know python but I am sure it is just a matter of one sligh modification in the pidginitem.py.

Thank you for your answer

Yes, where you see all of those QColor() functions those are R,G,B,A values. I.e. red/green/blue/alpha. You'll see that in main.py and pidginitem.py. Change those alpha values to what you like. I really should write a settings GUI... anyone know some simple code or have an easy to understand tutorial for that?

 Folding bug

Group doesn't fold on double-click if it's name contains non-ASCII characters (at least it's true for сyrillic letters)

Wow, that was weird. When I tried to debug it in a plasmoidviewer it just... worked. Probably the problem is somewhere in QTreeWidget, maybe it couldn't "click" the item with non-ASCII name.
BTW, I found some bad code:

if item.group in self.collapsedGroups:
del self.collapsedGroups[item.group]
self.collapsedGroups[item.group] = 1

You don't even need a dict here, collapsedGroups can be a list. The code would be simplier:

if item.group in self.collapsedGroups:

 Allow to make it taller when added to KDE panel

Hi great plugin, it allows me to see my Skype contacts in KDE panel via Skype/Pidgin integration. I was wondering if it would be possible to allow resizing the plasmoid when added to panel. I have panel on the right side of the scree with this plasmoid to see my contacts. Currently it shows only 6 lines = 6 contacts. I would like to make it taller to see more of my contacts. Thank you

That's pretty cool. I didn't realize you could put it into a panel--I just have it on my desktop. Anyhow, I'm not actively working on this project. Best of luck modifying the code! If you come up with something, let me know!

 Great applet ... but is big

Congratulations, thats a Great Job :-)
I had experimented this, and this applet is soo big, ocuping very very space in plasma :-D

I think, if it has settings to choose font size and color, buddy icons y/n, transparency %, ... it will be a little better, like piglet for windows, or most better :-)

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.
