If you get an error message from Google saying "Your
browser's cookie functionality is turned off. Please turn it
on.", you should try to log in to google calendar with
Konqueror and then retry. I don't have time to look at this
problem before late December, unfortunately.

Super-simple plasmoid for showing coming events from your Google Calendar.

Stores your username and password in kwallet.

Install with plasmapkg -i gcal-1.2.plasmoid

The code can be found at:


1.2: 2009-08-25
* rounded corners for the webview.

1.1.3: 2009-08-24
* force a white background colour for the web view. this hopefully makes this plasmoid usable on any theme.

1.1.2: 2009-05-09
* don't strip @doma.in in usernames for hosted apps

1.1.1: 2009-05-08
* Fix 404 error for @googlemail.com addresses

1.1: 2009-05-07
* Remembers username and password with kwallet
* Works with Google Apps for your Domain

1.0: 2009-05-05

 KDE 4.3?

 by tamasrepus on: Jul 16 2009

Can anyone confirm that this applet works on KDE 4.3? (currently RC2 as of this writing)

I get "Script initialisation failed" when trying to use the applet. I'm not sure how to diagnose it further.

Sorry it took someone so long to get back to you.

Yes, it works in KDE4.3, however, the background doesn't look very nice with many of the themes for plasma. To make it look nice I made a small modification to your script which you may consider including and improving for distribution:

def storeUserAndDomain(self, username, password):
re_email = re.compile('@(.+)')
m = re_email.search(username)

# if username is an email address with a domain name other than
# gmail.com, assume it's a Google Apps for your Domain thingie and
# change the url
if m <> None and m.group(1) <> "gmail.com" and m.group(1) <> "googlemail.com":
self.url = "http://google.com/calendar/hosted/" + m.group(1) + "/m"
username = re_email.sub('', username)
self.url = "file:///home/<username here>/.kde4/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/gcal/contents/code/displayCalendar.html"

self.settings['username'] = username
self.settings['password'] = password

where displayCalendar.html has:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHtmL 1.1//EN"

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<style type="text/css">
body {
overflow: hidden;
div.container {
position: absolute;
top: 2px;
right: 2px;
left: 0px;
bottom: 2px;
iframe {
background-color: #fff;
border: solid 1px black;
opacity: 0.75;
<div class="container">
<iframe src="http://google.com/calendar/m" width="100%" height="100%" frameborder="0">
<p>This applet does not support iframes</p>

I think that something like this would allow more customization via the css parameters to allow users to match their themes more closely and include transparency if they so choose.

 Resizing every time

 by cfraz89 on: Aug 24 2009

Thanks for this plasmoid, really nice and useful. However I like mine to be smaller than the default size. I can resize it smaller, however next time plasma restarts, it returns to default size. It would be awesome if you could modify the plasmoid to remember its size. I think this can be done by using X-Default-Size or something like that within the metadata file. Thanks again!

Oh yeah, and an option for font size would be awesome too :)

Thank you for the great plasmoid! Only thing that would improve this app is if it were possible to costumise the appearance a bit. I find it a bit crowded as is.

I have used Google Calendar from the beginning (think it's great). Today I upgraded to KDE 4.3.1 and now it doesn't work. Error message is: Object could not be created - could not creat a python ScriptEngine... Is there a fix for this?

I found my own fix... so in case someone else needs it, here's what I did: I just installed python-plasma from the Ubuntu repository and everything works now.

hello - it appears this plasmoid has become broken. I'm getting "please enable cookies" messages when I try to use it.

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.
