A little distraction for plasma. Throw the ball around the screen to relieve stress. Email me with suggestions! :)


Version 0.5: Very big update! Added lots of configuration options, including modifiable image and colour, physics settings, sound and an auto bounce feature. Please note that the sound is *strictly experimental* as in, it should work, but as my phonon is broken, I've never actually heard it work :). Thanks to MJD for the initial config patch, and a HUGE thanks to Christoph Burger-Scheidlin for all his help, bugfixes and patches. Enjoy.

Version 0.3:
This has the david roberts patches, so it looks nice again :) . Still to do is some config, eg colour change, image change, and maybe physics change. Ill dig into the plasma api :) .

Version 0.2b:
Quick little bugfix

Version 0.2:
Got a new image, thanks to Chris Sharkot (http://openclipart.org/media/people/chris_sharkot) on openclipart.org :)

Version 0.1:
Initial release, basic functionality.

Nice applet! I really like it ;-)
Thanks, this makes the desktop look more interactive....
It will be nice if the balls bounce one-over-the-other and if they stop issuing paint events when stopped (they still do)

Thanks for the great plasmoid!

I created a patch (available from http://pastebin.ca/868115) to add a config dialog to edit the basic physics parameters.

Just to keep you up to date, I'm working on 0.4, integrating MJD's ideas, and adding some more on the config side of things, if you have anything you'd like to be configurable, let me know and ill give it a shot :)

I make it.

I changed cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/lib/kde4/ into cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/ and all work good.

And i have another questions, it is possilbe to make ball not go behind other applets... like K toolbar.

I dont know anything about the layering off applets, but mine goes behind automatically, I'm still new to this plasma lark. Can anyone point me to a good short boing sound for the bounce please? Its really starting to annoy me that i cant find one :D

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.
