Updated:  Jul 23 2012


This software implements a plugin for Netscape-compatible browsers in a Unix environment. This plugin uses KDE's KParts technology to embed file viewers (e.g. for PDF files) into non-KDE browsers. Tested browsers include both Mozilla Firefox and Opera.
With this plugin, you can e.g. view PDF files in Firefox using Okular as an embedded plugin.


* Applying patch by Arno Rehn to avoid blacklisting in
Oxygen-transparent style

* Using URL to create a default filename when saving
copy of document
* Minor change in UI to place long mime type labels
in one line
* Adding push button to copy URL into clipboard

* Fixing some minor compilation errors
* Adding KCModule (System Settings module) to configure
which mime types shall be supported, removing this
option from the plugin itself

* Rearranging GUI to be more compact vertically
* Porting from KBibTeX support for custom keyboard shorts
* Refactoring drop-down menu to tree view for mime type

* Adding patch by Rex Dieter
set installation directory by parameter to cmake
* Fixing print menu item issue for Okular part
* Menus and toolbars know separators now

* Various minor changes
* Adding experimental support for menus and toolbars
from embedded part

* Adding various mimetypes to blacklist

* Blacklisting some more Java mimetypes: application/java-archive and video/x-javafx

* Minor code clean-up and refactoring (no functional changes)

* Added .pot file for translations
(no actual translations yet)

* Adding "application/googletalk" to blacklisted mime types

* Adding "application/futuresplash" to blacklisted mime types
* Checking if mime type is valid when reading data to avoid crash
* Minor tweaks in user interface strings

* Manually raising dialog to select part (if multiple
KParts available for same mime type)
* Minor GUI improvements

* Showing current mime type in GUI (right to buttons)
* Adding more mime types to built-in blacklisted list
("application/force-download", everything starting
with "x-")
* Adding release date to internal description
(see "about:plugins" in Firefox)

* Marking some mime types as built-in blacklisted, e.g.
* Adding more mime types to built-in blacklist to avoid
problems with Thunderbird

* Adding dialog to choose which KPart to use if several
parts are available. User can set preference to avoid
getting this dialog again for the same mime type.

* Adding comments throughout the code
* Enabling/disabling mime types possible in GUI
(new push button with menu)
* Improved focus handling using code from Jeremy Sanders
* Make installation path 32/64-bit aware
* Minor GUI improvements

* Major refactoring
* Supported mime types determined through KDE-internal
functions; hard-coded list no longer necessary
* Adding support for keyboard focus.
Tip from Jeremy Sanders (http://barmag.net/)

* Saving file failed if part was not loaded properly.

* CMakeLists.txt contains a variable with installation
* New script src/generate-mimetype-includes.sh to enhance
"raw" source files to final files containing a list of
objects (one for each supported mime type)
List of mime types can be controlled via text file
* Showing a list of compiled-in/supported mime types
while waiting for the file's data
* Open and save buttons are available even if no part
is available to show the file's data
* Fixing warnings

* Initial release

 Mime Types lists too big

 by wakajawaka on: Feb 17 2012
Score 50%

Sorry for my poor english.
If I want blacklist a mime type, I click on "supported mime types". The "application" list is more bigger than screen dimensions and a lot of mime types are unreachable, out of screen.
Would be better if the lists were sliding rather than fixed.

 Broken archive handling?

 by lucke on: Mar 6 2012
Score 50%

I'm using the latest kpartsplugin, in Arch. It works okay with pdfs, not so okay with archives (can't readily find other filetypes to test). When I try to download e.g. http://www.unix-ag.uni-kl.de/~fischer/kpartsplugin/kpartsplugin-20110823.tar.bz2, I get, both in Opera and Firefox, the "choose your program" dialog instead of the ark kpart. Conversely, sometimes, e.g. when trying to download packages from archlinux.org (say, http://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/i686/mlocate/download/), I get the ark kpart, but with KPartsPlugin* as the contents of the archive - clicking on it shows the preview of the contents of the archive, but using the kpart like that or opening it in external viewer is mightily unwieldy and thus annoying, much more than being presented with the "choose your program" dialog from the beginning. Well, can't find a proper bugtracker, so I'm posting here.

Keep up the good work.

This is most likely not KPartPlugin's fault, but rather a configuration issue of either your browser or KDE.
  • For Firefox, check in its preferences -> Applications that KPartsPlugin is configured for the archive's mime type.
  • In KDE's File Association settings, check that an embeddable viewer is selected for this mime type.

     Always crashing

    KPart plugin crashes on me when using with Firefox 11 to view PDF's (probably does it to all other mimetypes though).

    Question: You know the new menu support you added? Is it possible to align the menu to the top? Could save a little extra room.

    I deselected certain mime types I don't want KPart to take over, but it's still taking over...

    Thank you for making this plugin. It is really awesome. There is one minor issue though. The menu provided by the loaded kpart is not translated although the rest of my system is. For example if I open a PDF in Okular its main menu is in Czech (my system language) but if I open it in Firefox using the plugin, then the menu is in English (but only the items in menubar, the items that show after clicking on one of the menubar items are correctly in Czech).

    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.
