Submitted:  Feb 11 2011

Donations Welcome!
1LEpo473e5fBtvrdaKv88mAq6qZ7vu6anx


Installation:

Download the zip file, unzip it, and type:

plasmapkg -u btcRate

if that doesn't work, try

plasmapkg -i btcRate

Then the plasmoid should be available when you select "Add new widgets" from the desktop or the panel. Let me know if it works!

About bitcoins

Bitcoins are a decentralized electronic currency designed for easy exchange of money between individuals over the internet. They can be very useful for people who want to develop simple payment solutions without depending on big players like PayPal. They can also be extremely efficient as a micropayment scheme.

More info: http://www.bitcoin.org/




Changelog:

Version 0.9 is a polishing and bugfixing release. It fixes the URL and a couple other problems.

Version 0.8 fetches the data in the background to avoid freezing the desktop. A new algorithm for computing the rate is also introduced, which should still be robust but respond faster to changes in the market.

Version 0.7 improves icon placement on big screens.

Version 0.6 adds a daily volume estimate, which gives a more long-term vision of what is happening.

Version 0.5 displays the time of the last update and handle network errors more gracefully.

Version 0.4 adds a tooltip that displays current volume and the last trade price

Version 0.3 improves display and refresh rate.

Neat plasmoid. I couldn't get it to install with the -u switch, but the -i switch does the trick.

thanks a lot. I will join the network because bitcoins is a decentralized monetary system which can save the people. We need system like this for the period of time before monetary system, money itself, are abolished once and for all. Untill then, bankers literally own the people.
Will research more then maybe post more, for now thanks for this new project, im for it

 Slows panel

I've never installed a non-standard plasmoid before so it is quite likely user error on my part.

This plasmoid is great! Except when I assume it is fetching new data from MtGox. Then my panel sits there 'frozen' for a few minutes. Afterwards the new data is displayed and everything is fine again.

I'm having the same problem lately. I guess the solution is to run the update in a separate thread.

If someone wants to send me a patch, it's more than welcome!

The new version should solve your problems. Could you test it and tell me if it works better?

Looks like the URL you are fetching says '301 Moved Permanently' now :(

It seems to me you forgot to update X-KDE-PluginInfo-Version field in btcRate/metadata.desktop.

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
