QuoteSee lets you track stock and currency quotes.

format for symbols:
usdcad=x - USD to CAD
yhoo - Yahoo!

It was tested on Kubuntu 9.04 w/KDE4.3.2 and OpenSuSE 11.1 with Qt 4.5.2 and KDE 4.3.

Known issues
* will most likely crash KDE 4.4 tested on Kubuntu 10.04
* reported crashing on Mandriva 2010.0


To compile on Kubuntu, install:

If you don't want to compile:
check out the info and grab repository or package from:



Mandriva i586: - REPORTED CRASHING



QuoteSee 0.2.2 [2009-10-12]
* Fixed symbol case bug
* Increased width 20 pixels so change and long names don't overlap if hovered over item
* Added identification of invalid symbols

QuoteSee 0.2.1 [2009-08-27]
* Fixed crashing when running multiple instances
* Reverted to KUrlRequester::setPath, compiling for KDE 4.3 will return a deprecation warning but will work
* Modified behavior for handling load/save file path

QuoteSee 0.2 [2009-08-10]
New features:
* Hovering over a widget causes a button for external link to show up, clicking on it opens a browser on yahoo page for the symbol
* Hovering over a widget causes tool tip with trade time and date to show up
* Configuration options for reading and saving a symbol list file
* Configuration setting for increasing/decreasin update interval, this is for widget only, dataengine updates every 1 minute
* Configuration setting for settning applet translucency
* New Icon!!
* Now plasmoid uses quotesee data engine
* Improved processing for currency change fetching, grabs a smaller chunk of xml

QuoteSee 0.1.2 [2009-04-07]
* Fixed currency rate change fetching if compiled with Qt 4.5
* Currency rate change is displayed with 4 decimal places instead of 2
* Stock names containing ',' display correctly, but are still limited to 17 characters

QuoteSee 0.1.1 [2009-03-30]
* Fixed crashing when checking currency quotes if QuoteSee compiled with Qt 4.5 (works fine with Qt 4.4.3). Still won't work correctly but won't crash and take the desktop with it.

 even better

hi there. Quotesee runs perfect and stable with Kubuntu 9.04 and 9.10.

However I had an idea for an improvement: the proposal would be to have a little ticker chart that shows the last 5 or 10 values to get an idea if the stock goes recently up or down.

Secondly it would be great to be able to enter some markers for each stock e.g. a buy value, a stop value and others. You should be able to define that these markers give an alarm, each time the stock crosses them from below from above or both. the stock should then be blinking for a while or red coloured or bold or something that makes it recognizeable.

great work so far, keep it coming...

Hi, I was pretty sure I replied to your post couple days ago, for some reason it didn't show up... or i didn't reply. Anyway, thank you for the comment, I'm glad the widget works.

I thought about adding a chart to the tooltip before, now that there's actually a request, I'll definitely do that.

The marker thing is an interesting idea, I'll definitely give it more thought, thought the data is delayed according to http://finance.yahoo.com/exchanges so an alarm would not reflect a current value.

Thanks again for suggestions.

 Width change

I'm trying to change the width of the widget, due to the text overlapping on some stocks, however, after changing the lines as you specify earlier in the comments, and re-installing, the width doesn't change at all. What am I doing wrong? Changing as below doesn't work. Thanks,

You can change the size in source files.

src/quotesee.cpp:84, 85
setMinimumSize(270, 100);
setPreferredSize(270, 100);

these two lines set the minimum and prefered size for the widget, first parameter is minimum width, second minimum height, parameters need to be integer type


sets the minimum width for the stock item, takes integer parameter.

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.
