 home path

 
 by mherbert on: Jul 1 2008
 
Score 50%

looks nice so far
Just a hint: for the home path you can use the static function QDir::homePath()
eg. home = QDir::homePath();
And as far as I know there is already a weather-dataengine, perhaps it helps you..

hope i could help you

Thanks you!! This is my first QT program EVER so I'm learning as I go. I'm sure I've made a few mistakes along the way.

I appreciate the information about the weather engine. I have a question though. Is the weather engine designed to retrieve weather data for other plasmoids or is it its own plasmoid?

I've had a really difficult time finding good documentation for plasma. It's probably changing daily so maybe documentation is premature. I've managed to create my plasmoid using some of the basic documentation that is available and also reading LOTS of plasmoid code from other developers.

Thanks for the comment.

The engine provides the applet with data, so it's not a plasmoid (=applet) on its own.

Just look through the source in the link given above. Or look into the sources on your disk at home. Or ask Aaron ;)

well every body has to start somewhere;)
The dataengine is only to fetch the data and hand it over to the applets..
It seems there are two weather applets in kde's playground
http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/playground/base/plasma/applets/
called weather and weather_station perhaps you can have a look how they used the weather-dataengine...
The plasma-api is not very well documented yet but that may change...
you can have a look here:

Thank you. That's some of the best plasma documentation I've seen so far. I wish I would have found that earlier ;-).

That's disappointing that there's already a weather widget in the works. I'm wondering whether or not I should continue with my work. Maybe I should try and contribute directly to the new project. What is the best way to get onto a pre-existing KDE project?

Just write an email to the maintainer - the should be a note at the beginning of every source file and also something in the README :)

 Shows only widget background

 
 by ademmer1977 on: Jul 4 2008

Hi,

I successfully compiled and installed it, but when I add the plasmoid to my desktop, it shows only the empty, default plasmoid background. No options for configuration, nothing.

Any ideas?

This may be because I had the wrong tarball posted. Try downloading again and let me know what happens.

Also, there is a dependency of the plasmoid on the wget program. If you do not have wget installed the plasmoid will not work correctly. I am going to try and remove the dependency in my next release but my QT skills are not that great so it may take me a little while.

Let me know if neither of these solutions fix your problem and I'll try and come up with something else.

The link to the tarball leads to version 0.1, could you please update this?

Sorry about that. I finished up the code late last night and didn't realize that when I uploaded the tarball that it was too big for KDE-Look. :-)

I've moved it to a file sharing site for now so that it can be downloaded. I'm going to move it to my web site when I get a chance.

Thanks for the report!!

How about this free iconset for the weather icons:

By far more visually appealing than the current ones. :-)

I am hopefully going to have support for icon themes in my next release.

Those are very icons!! Do you know if they are GPL? I couldn't tell because the author didn't have any licensing information on the site. If they are I can pull them into another theme.

I doubt they are. Per the readme
"If you want to use these icons for yourself (e.g. on your desktop or in your private website) - that's fine! But for any commercial use (e.g. use in your website project for your Client) - you must buy these iconset via PayPal - just contact me: wojciech@iconbest.com"

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.
