STDIN Plasmoid

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  4609
Submitted:  Nov 1 2008
Updated:  Feb 9 2009


This plasmoid executes a process and captures its stdout or stderr output stream, it can also display the content of a local file or a remote file via KIO.
You can think of this plasmoid as a general purpose scriptable plasmoid, even for languages not supported by kross, because you can make an script and capture its output :-).

This package contains both, the 0.2 and 0.1 versions, to install the package just execute the install.sh script or these commands in order:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
sudo make install
kquitapp plasma; sleep 1; plasma (or restart KDE)

The 0.2 version requires KDE 4.2, users of KDE 4.1 may only install the 0.1 version. The build script in the root directory tries to find your KDE version and select the proper version, if it fails enter to the 0.1 or 0.2 directory and execute the corresponding install.sh script

These are some demonstration videos

* http://ezeaguerre.googlepages.com/cpu.ogg: Watch cpu speed and temperature.
* http://ezeaguerre.googlepages.com/encoding.ogg: Select from all the different encodings KDE supports.
* http://ezeaguerre.googlepages.com/log.ogg: Watch a log across a network on realtime using tail, or with a 1 second delay using KIO.
* http://ezeaguerre.googlepages.com/svnygit.ogg: Monitor Subversion and Git logs.

The Subversion repository now has a 0.2 directory:
0.2/trunk: The most recent version.
0.2/branches/0.2-workarounds: trunk + workarounds for various bugs found in Qt and KDE.
0.2/tags: Tagged releases

0.1 trunk: svn co https://plasmoidstdin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/plasmoidstdin/0.1 stdin
0.2 trunk: svn co https://plasmoidstdin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/plasmoidstdin/0.2/trunk stdin
0.2-workarounds branch: svn co https://plasmoidstdin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/plasmoidstdin/0.2/branches/0.2-workarounds stdin
This package: svn co https://plasmoidstdin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/plasmoidstdin/0.2/tags/0.2-beta1 stdin

This package is based on 0.2-workarounds branch, which is the one we recommend, and has workarounds for at least these bugs:
* Qt 4.4 doesn't propagate changes in geometry to parent QGraphicsWidget, hopefully it will be fixed by Qt 4.5.
* Plasma::PopupApplet doesn't remember the size nor the aspect ratio of the plasmoid after iconifying to the panel.
* Plasma::Applet::setBackgroundHints(Plasma::Applet::NoBackground) fails when called from Plasma::Applet::init().
* Maybe more which I don't remember right now...

Translated into:
* Spanish.
* Czech.
* Brazilian Portuguese.

Some Useful Commands
You may need to edit them slightly for your system.
* WLAN SIGNAL: iwconfig wlan0 | grep -i quality.*signal | cut -b 11-100
* WLAN USEAGE: ifstat wlan0 | grep -iE "(wlan0)|(Interface)"
* NVIDIA TEMP: printf "Core Temp: "; nvidia-settings -q gpucoretemp |grep '):' | awk '{print$4}' |cut -b 1,2


* Completely rewritten from scratch.
* Support various encodings (not just ASCII or UTF-8).
* Get files with KIO.
* Capture standard output and/or standard error.
* Select the background style (Normal, Translucent or No Background).
* Basic filtering (how many lines to display, counting form the start or the end...).
* Contextual action "refresh" and "copy".
* Many more...

* Added build 4 kde 4.2 same as yaWP
* Some fixes to the running of commands (by Ezequiel -thanks)

Major upgrade ;) :
* Added update() (1 line)
* Fixed spelling mistake in description, (waisting or necking rather than wasting ; the opposite).
I'm still happy to say that it is still dumb, nothing changed, ... really.

* The start of great things (maybe not).

- reset console attributes correctly

SVN trunk has support for ANSI colour escape codes, but this package (based on 0.2-workarounds) does not. Unfortunately trunk is buggy for me (doesn't work in panels), so I have to install this one too!

That plasmoid provoked a crash on my Debian stable, I had to remove the plasmoid from the system by tty because the DE wouldn't start.

 Workaround for horizontal panel bug

 by Waseda on: Apr 12 2014
Score 50%

I was having trouble with vertical alignment when this plasmoid was in a horizontal panel. The text would half disappear off the bottom.

A workaround is to make sure that:
Appearence [sic] > Background > No Background.

Any of the other two settings, and the vertical alignment is broken.

(You'll need to restart KDE for it to be fixed.)

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.
