PidginPlasmoid

Plasmoid Script

Score 86%

Minimum required   KDE 4.x

Submitted:  Oct 29 2009
Updated:  Jan 18 2012

Description:

This is a port of the PidginScreenlet to the KDE4 plasma desktop. This plasmoid simply shows your contacts from Pidgin on your KDE desktop. It is very rough around the edges and does not contain all of the features I wish it could. Patches, forks, tips and tricks welcome!

This project depends on plasma-scriptengine-python

TODO: write configuration dialog to configure allow configuring 1) displaying pics 2) showing search box 3) showing all offline contacts 4) showing groups 5) showing selected contacts, even if offline. Need help writing this, please submit patches!




Changelog:

0.01 - Initial public release
0.02 - Shows recent sign in/sign off, more minor display bug fixes
0.03 - Redesign: groups can be collapsed, chats initiated by double-clicking, Pidgin can be launched if it's not running, allows scrolling if list is too long
0.04 - Search all contacts quickly, fix for if Pidgin not running, added tool tips that show on mouseover of picture, icon for Pidgin not running, icons for buddies without buddy pics
0.04 - Updated with transparency. Released update without version bump (3/18/2010)

More work is needed, but a great start. Especially since it's a script and I don't need to look for a .deb.

Keep up the good work and keep improving it.

One suggestion I'll make is needed for Plasma even though it doesn't apply to the original screenlet. Currently the only way to have this in a panel is to create an auto-hiding (or even non-hiding) panel off to one side. Some people might prefer it this way, but others might want an option to normally display as an icon (perhaps also indicating status) and pop up the main window when hovered for a few seconds or clicked. This should be optional as some users would still want the whole window, whether on the desktop or in a panel.

Pick one of these three ways to install:
1. run "plasmapkg -i PidginPlasmoid.zip"; or,
2. Right click on your desktop, select Add Widgets, click on Install New Widgets then Install from a local file, select Plasmoid, click next, select the PidginPlasmoid.zip file, click finish; or,
3. Download and install directly from KDE's KDE-Look installer--search for PidginPlasmoid and click install.

It is not clear that the python is required. Through systemsettings can only *. plasma

 Icons

Would it be possible to disable loading of contact icons/avatars? I like how this applet looks without them.
Except for that, it's looking promising!

 bug: UnicodeEncodeError:

 
 by hefee on: Nov 4 2009

Hello,

i got an error, when i ran your plasmoid:
File "/home/hefee/.kde/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/pidgin-plasmoid/contents/code/pidginitem.py", line 25, in __init__
self.status_text = str(status_text)
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xfc' in position 46: ordinal not in range(128)

but the solution is simple: just change the position of status_text ant status in pidginitem.py. The correct line is:

def __init__(self, parent, group, buddy, alias, status="",status_text="", picture=None, recent=0)

The latest 0.04 version shouldn't have that same line in pidginitem.py, rather it reads: def __init__(self, parent, group, buddy, alias, status_text="", name="", status="", picture=None, recent=0): Update your version and try again and let me know if the bug is still there, maybe it's something else causing it?

 INstallation Failed

Hi,

This plasmoid is a great idea. hgiwever, I wasn't able to install it. I use KUbuntu 9.10. Trying to install through the right click on desktop, add plasmoid and download new plasmoid failed "Initialization script failed". Trying to plasmapkg -i PidginPlasmoid.zip just prints out installation failed.

Too bad because I would really wanted to see what it looks like.

Hope next version will work on Ubuntu.

Cheers

I actually developed this under KUbuntu 9.10. Do you have the plasma-scriptengine-python package installed? Do you get any error messages running it from the command line? From the terminal, unzip the file. Cd into the directory, and run plasmoidviewer with no command line arguments. You'll should see all of the debug output that way.

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
