 Set as desktop bg.

Why this plasmoid sets itself as not removable desktop background while no other apps are visible or usable? I had to go back to console and uninstall daisy. That's virus like.

So you right-clicked on the desktop, chose "Appearance settings" and in the "Type" entry chose to use Daisy as the desktop, correct?
The option to have Daisy as the desktop background was a "bug" and is now fixed in this current release. To fix this behavior all you had to do was to read a previous post to find the answer.
Download the new version and install it, then restart your plasma workspace.

And please do not post here saying my work is a virus. This is not the place for that, my work is open sourced, meaning everyone can read it, change it, distribute it.

I installed version 0.0.4.18 for the first time ever, rebbooted my machine and Daisy had hijacked the Desktop and deactivated the right click menue of the mouse. The only way to get back my previous settings was to uninstall this app via console.

I don't want to say, your apps are viruses, I only described the behaviour of daisy in this case. Sorry for this.

Now I retried to install - same result. The other application windows and application menus seems to reside behind the automaticly started daisy desktop. It's impossible to start or see any other app, because the daisy desktop is alwasy on top.

It should not behave like that at all. The only way Daisy would display as a desktop would be if it was configured to do that from the "Appearance Setting" > "Type", see image:

Always with user input, not on its own.

You say you've downloaded and installed Daisy 0.0.4.18 from source and it can still behave as a desktop container, that's absolutely impossible. I've removed that possibility in this version.

The widget does not hijack anything, it's working for me and for everyone else who helps in the testing.

To remove Daisy from the plasma workspace all you need to do is this (already posted in the previous page):

Just edit your plasma-applets config file and remove the Daisy entry:

- open a terminal;
- type: "kquitapp plasma";
- type: "kwrite ~/.kde/share/config/plasma-appletsrc";
- search for: "plasma_applet_daisy";
- delete that configuration section;
- save the file and close kwrite;
- type: "plasma";

Normal desktop should now be used as background.

actually I had the same problem as frankqn1. I never even started the plasmoid and when I rebooted my laptop daisy was resized to fit the whole screen and it was impossible to do anything at all. I had to remove the plasmoid from the root shell. Not a coincidence I think :)

That's very weird. No widget adds itself to the desktop let alone sets itself as the desktop background.

With you had you mean that it behaved like this in versions previous to the current one (0.0.4.18), correct?
Currently it is not possible to use Daisy as the desktop background. The widget is defined as being a panel containment. You can check this by looking into the file "plasma-applet-daisy.desktop", where it reads:

X-KDE-ServiceTypes=Plasma/Applet,Plasma/Containment
X-Plasma-ContainmentCategories=panel

Another way to access the Folder View Settings is bind Alt+D, Alt+S keys or holding Alt then pressing D and S (not at same time), then you can restore to Folder View or Desktop. It was rough to figure this binding key, since it's not on System Settings and nor avaiable the option Folder View Settings on it (such a pity for KDE 4).

Nevertheless, it'd seems cool have Daisy as desktop type (again).

Sure, the "taskbar" plugin should be the next "big addition" to Daisy.

Hi,

I'm also getting Daisy as background in Fedora 10 on restarting KDE with 0.0.4.18.
Solution: remove and roll back to 0.0.4.17.

Thanks for a great plasmoid.

Hi. Thank you for the report.
Please test the latest version, should be corrected now and behave as a simple applet.

Heh, I thought that it was a super cool new feature which I do not have a use for, and you now call it a bug?

Think this use case can be worked into an advantage? I can see it being useful for devices with small screens (cough netbook cough). But it will be better off as a rectangle.

It could have some use, yes. But it can also be confusing for some people (like it has proven to be) having a widget as desktop background. For the moment that option is removed.

Is is possible to have a link for kickoff/lancelot/raptor menus inside daisy? Like when I click on the K button? I am assuming that it is 99% impossible, but worth a shot!

It's doable. In theory it is possible to add any kind of applet to a container, like it is done in panel. Just have to implement that in Daisy. Might take some time to do it.

Cool! As long as it is doable, I am happy. I can wait for it.

The features I am waiting for:
1. daisy as a task manager - So I no longer require that ugly task manager.
2. Plasmoids in daisy.
3. Some form of system tray integration.

This is turning out to be a killer plasmoid.
Don't you think you have gained enough millage out of 0.0.4 version? :-)

Task manager available in a few days.
With "system tray integration" you mean having the possibility to display the system tray in Daisy? If so, the system tray is actually just a plasma applet, like others. It's possible do add it, after turning Daisy into a real container.

Right now the point would be to have Daisy as a "stable" applet ( although it's still in alpha stage ), would like to have it usable, so people can use it right-away without any major inconveniences.

This is really an awesome Plasmoid! Best Mac OS-Style Dock I've seen so far for KDE4.

Keep up the good work!

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
