Plasmoid Script

Score 82%

Submitted:  Jan 1 2012

Py-Cashew is a KDE4 plasmoid that hides the desktop toolbox, also known as the cashew. Some find the cashew pretty but others who don't have no way to remove it. The KDE developers made it clear that they won't add an option to hide it (see http://userbase.kde.org/Plasma/FAQ/4.4#Please_provide_an_option_to_disable_the_upper_right_cashew.), so this plasmoid offers a way out.

Py-cashew is very much like "I HATE the cashew" that seems to have disappeared from KDE-look.org. It is written in python so you won't have to compile it to use it. It simply hides the cashew, if you need more configurability, take a look at Stealth Cashew http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Stealth+Cashew?content=108460.

KDE versions 4.6 to 4.11 are supported. Py-cashew may or may not work with previous versions.

Py-Cashew is a stupid name, another reason to try it !


1.0 first version

1.1 Make it work on kde4.8 in activities like "search and launch"

1.2 Remove __del__, this should fix some potential plasma crash upon logout

(Py-Cashew plasmoid v1.2)

 Segfault on KDE 4.11

Running on Debian Testing (Jessie). Py-Cashew can be installed from Get New Stuff or downloaded and installed locally without a problem, but on attempting to add the plasmoid to the desktop, plasma-desktop segfaults and reloads, complete with cashew.

This is caused by a bug in the updated python-sip package, starting with version 4.15.

I opened a bug in kde bugzilla: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=325667

 Error on KDE 4.13

I've been using this handy little widget for a really-really long time. Today I've upgraded to ubuntu 14.04 with KDE 4.13 and unfortunately the widget no longer works. A semi-transparent grey box is created (similar for example to the folderview widget) and inside it the text says:

This object could not be created for the following reason:
Script initialization failed

I made sure that plasma-scriptengine-python and python-qt4 is installed, not sure what else to try. Please help.

After enabling plasma-desktop, plasma and libplasma in kdebugdialog, I could see the following error in the file ~/.xsession-errors-:0 :

File "/usr/share/kde4/apps/plasma_scriptengine_python/pyappletscript.py", line 75, in init
File "/home/jv/.kde4/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/py-cashew/contents/code/main.py", line 40, in init
self.cashews = self.getCashew()
File "/home/jv/.kde4/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/py-cashew/contents/code/main.py", line 66, in getCashew
if c.toolBoxItem() != None]
RuntimeError: no access to protected functions or signals for objects not created from Python

So it seems that the reason is bug https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=325667 . I am not an expert in Plasma, but I understand from the bug description that the mechanism used by PyCashew is deprecated now by the Plasma API developers. But I wonder: does this mean that there is currently no workaround to fix PyCashew and we should ask the Plasma developers to add a new feature that would allow disabling the cashew (either built in or using a widget like PyCashew)? Is there a bug to vote for?

Yeah... don't bother voting. KDE developers say the cachew is an integral part of plasma and they refuse to remove it, so unless the developer of this plugin can figure something out, I'm afraid we are out of options.
BTW, there's another plugin, it's called maybe "stealth cachew", not sure though, I don't remember. That one is able to make the cachew completely transparent, so you don't see it, but if you accidentally click on it's location, a menu pops out from nowhere, so that's even worse in my opinion, but I'm still mentioning it, because others may like it.

This won't help much but it is the best tip I can give: Move the damn thing *under* your panel, e.g. under the clock plasmoid or the notification icons.

soger, frumble, thank you for the tips! I moved the cashew under the clock, so it didn't interact with mouse any more and became only barely visible (because the panel is semi-transparent). Then I applied Stealth Cashew to make it totally invisible. I guess the Stealth Cashew script will now be eating some milliseconds of KDE startup time and some memory (it needs to load Ruby and all), but probably not very much compared to the rest.

Interesting solution, I didn't think of it because I remember some years ago you couldn't move the cachew below the panel, KDE kept relocating it, but fortunately in 4.13 you can. Stealth cachew has it's own problems, but I better report them on it's own page.

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.
