 Great applet...

 by stefan- on: Nov 24 2012
Score 63%

This is a great widget, but it took me some tinkering to find the correct packages required for building on openSUSE (in my case selecting packages cmake, libkde4-devel, libkdecore4-devel was sufficient to get all required packages).

This appplet is aimed at non-geeks but having to cope with tar, sh and cmake makes it a geek-only tool.
The INSTALL script is straightforward, but I guess normal users will not easily get the right development packages required for building.

This widget exists sinc more then two years now and its still not part of the KDE SC.
At least, it should be readily available via the plasma desktop "Get New Widgets"/"Get Hot New Stuff".

Agreed! I was hoping to install this on my Kubuntu 12.10 system but I've no idea how to build it. I installed cmake and then executed in turn each line of the INSTALL file. Needless to say, it didn't work. (Or maybe it didn't, but there was no plasmoid file I could find.)

Some debs or rpms or something would help.

 System Tray Issue

Happens after every kde upgrade. Need to recompile so after putting 4.9.5-or#, did so. In the past, this was enough--reinsert and it is OK. However, this time, can reinsert the widget but on next loging, it is [X]'ed out once again.

Actually, had a older version on /usr/local. Removed that and reinstalled. The applet works on MY login but I cannot get to it on other user's.

 Fast User Switch plasmoid on openSUSE

 by zpintar on: Feb 8 2013

For all openSUSE 12.1, 12.2, upcoming 12.3 and Tumbleweed users I've packaged this plasmoid with screenlocker fix patch.
This works well with KDE 4.9, but in KDE 4.10, after open new session and than return from this new session to previous user, KDE needs unlocking. Only than and only this first time, after that Plasmoid switching well, without unlocking needs. If someone knows where is the problem, please contact me here.

Please, try via my person repository:

Package name is: plasmoid-fastuserswitch

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
