KParts Plugin

Version Control:  Link
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  2621
Submitted:  May 21 2010
Updated:  Jul 23 2012


This software implements a plugin for Netscape-compatible browsers in a Unix environment. This plugin uses KDE's KParts technology to embed file viewers (e.g. for PDF files) into non-KDE browsers. Tested browsers include both Mozilla Firefox and Opera.
With this plugin, you can e.g. view PDF files in Firefox using Okular as an embedded plugin.


* Applying patch by Arno Rehn to avoid blacklisting in
Oxygen-transparent style

* Using URL to create a default filename when saving
copy of document
* Minor change in UI to place long mime type labels
in one line
* Adding push button to copy URL into clipboard

* Fixing some minor compilation errors
* Adding KCModule (System Settings module) to configure
which mime types shall be supported, removing this
option from the plugin itself

* Rearranging GUI to be more compact vertically
* Porting from KBibTeX support for custom keyboard shorts
* Refactoring drop-down menu to tree view for mime type

* Adding patch by Rex Dieter
set installation directory by parameter to cmake
* Fixing print menu item issue for Okular part
* Menus and toolbars know separators now

* Various minor changes
* Adding experimental support for menus and toolbars
from embedded part

* Adding various mimetypes to blacklist

* Blacklisting some more Java mimetypes: application/java-archive and video/x-javafx

* Minor code clean-up and refactoring (no functional changes)

* Added .pot file for translations
(no actual translations yet)

* Adding "application/googletalk" to blacklisted mime types

* Adding "application/futuresplash" to blacklisted mime types
* Checking if mime type is valid when reading data to avoid crash
* Minor tweaks in user interface strings

* Manually raising dialog to select part (if multiple
KParts available for same mime type)
* Minor GUI improvements

* Showing current mime type in GUI (right to buttons)
* Adding more mime types to built-in blacklisted list
("application/force-download", everything starting
with "x-")
* Adding release date to internal description
(see "about:plugins" in Firefox)

* Marking some mime types as built-in blacklisted, e.g.
* Adding more mime types to built-in blacklist to avoid
problems with Thunderbird

* Adding dialog to choose which KPart to use if several
parts are available. User can set preference to avoid
getting this dialog again for the same mime type.

* Adding comments throughout the code
* Enabling/disabling mime types possible in GUI
(new push button with menu)
* Improved focus handling using code from Jeremy Sanders
* Make installation path 32/64-bit aware
* Minor GUI improvements

* Major refactoring
* Supported mime types determined through KDE-internal
functions; hard-coded list no longer necessary
* Adding support for keyboard focus.
Tip from Jeremy Sanders (http://barmag.net/)

* Saving file failed if part was not loaded properly.

* CMakeLists.txt contains a variable with installation
* New script src/generate-mimetype-includes.sh to enhance
"raw" source files to final files containing a list of
objects (one for each supported mime type)
List of mime types can be controlled via text file
* Showing a list of compiled-in/supported mime types
while waiting for the file's data
* Open and save buttons are available even if no part
is available to show the file's data
* Fixing warnings

* Initial release

it would be great to have it working in rekonq. to put an exemple, okular is much more powerful in kpartsplugin than in the embedded okular window in rekonq...

 Menubar and Toolbar hiding in Okular

 by nullst on: Dec 16 2012
Score 50%

This plug-in is great and I enjoy having embedded Okular in Firefox very much. The only issue is that menubar and toolbar take some vertical space, and I don't use either of them very often: my typical pdf-file browsing session is "open the file, read some parts, then close it". It would be really great for me to have "Disable UI" option in right-click menu, which will hide menubar, toolbar, and maybe even pagebar, leaving only the content of a file and scrollbar. Then pdf file viewing in Firefox would be really like reading an ordinary web page.

Other commenters proposed a right-click menu option to disable only toolbar or only menubar. I would be happy with this too (and page bar hiding is already implemented).

One more thing, which is probably impossible: what about special "performance" settings for Okular? It has a choice of memory usage politics, and while having "Normal" or "Aggressive" mode in a standalone viewer is OK, forcing embedded okular windows to switch to "Low" memory usage seems reasonable (as an option, indeed). I have to admit that this is very okular-specific and given that (as far as I know, but I may be wrong) okular doesn't support different modes in different instances, the idea looks improbable, but still there may be some way.

Thank you for your work on the plug-in which makes browsing a lot more convenient. I often have to look through pdf files linked from web and using KParts+Okular instead of a clumsy and somewhat slow Adobe Reader plug-in for Firefox is very nice.

 How do I adjust which file types?

I want it to open PDF, but it has taken over all kinds of file types. How do I tell it only PDF?

You could just keep it disabled (no restart required in Firefox) and then enable it when you have a pdf to look at. I do that sometimes.

Dear dev,
kparts-plugin is pure magic. I cannot believe how it enhances my productivity in Firefox. I just love the power of KDE. Thank you!

 Crash report

 by groszdani on: Oct 13 2013
Score 50%

1. Choose a file which can be opened with a kpart.
2. Remove all kparts associated with it.
3. Open such a file in the browser.
Kpartsplugin crashes.

Moreover, if the file type does not have any associated kparts anymore, it does not appear in the kpartsplugin configuration module, so you cannot configure it not to be opened with kpartsplugin.

 NPAPI is deprecated

According to http://blog.chromium.org/2013/09/saying-goodbye-to-our-old-friend-npapi.html, Chrome will remove NPAPI support starting with version 35. Is there any plan for PPAPI support?

Hello, a few hours ago chromium-browser was updated to version 34, and the NPAPI was completely removed. This means that the upcoming Ubuntu 14.04LTS and variants will be unable to have kpartsplugin on chromium-browser.

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.
