Plasmoid Binary

Score 75%

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  1110
Submitted:  Jul 24 2008
Updated:  Mar 24 2011


This is a plasma applet that provides a countdown and a stopwatch.
The countdown could be started anonymous or with a preset.
The anonymous countdown asks for hours, minutes and seconds after
which the timer should fire.
The Presets could be configured and used to e.g. count down the
time to cook pasta or make a tea.

- since the commands can have different notification methods, the config interface needs a redesign ;)
- size issues when used in panel

- extract
- navigate a konsole to source dir
- create a build dir ("mkdir build")
- change to build dir ("cd build")
- generate makefiles: "cmake .."
--> on my system (debian) i need to use "cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr .."
- make... ("make")
- become root ("su")
- install ("make install")

- now you need to either restart KDE or use:
- "kbuildsycoca4"
- "kquitapp plasma"
- "plasma"

The source for this applet is now available at:
via git etc...: http://gitorious.org/timoid
as tarball....: http://gitorious.org/timoid/timoid/archive-tarball/master

i have neglected this applet for a very long time and this latest update is just a compile fix.
further improvements are planned, but i do not promise anything ;)


0.99 aka "one bug remains" - first release
0.99.1 - countdowns can now have different notification methods (popup, sound, run command)

0.99.2 - made the applet compile again (KDE 4.5) and fixed the time problem (see comments)

Good job, works really nice. Is there a sound alarm on your todo list, perhaps? :)

originally i tried to use knotify which could fire a sound, a command or whatever and would be configurable through system settings, but for some reason it wouldn't work.
but i definetly will try again ;)
-- check back later...

What for use KNotify for such plasmoid? You can use phonon library available in Qt4.4.

 Timer Idle

I can't get this plasmoid to do anything. Is there something I'm missing? I've clicked around in the settings and no matter what I do it just says "Timer Idle".

 Strange timer

 by dcrabs on: Sep 1 2008

I really would like to use your app but when I input values bigger than 1h it displays something very different. For example 1h6min will display 66h6min. Can someone confirm this behavior? I compiled it for KDE 4.1 on amd64
Thanks, dcrabs

I can confirm the weird hours behavior.

KDE 4.1.3, Kubuntu Intrepid Ibex 8.10

This used to work in Hardy 8.04.

to repair hours bug you must edit source before compilation:

edit file src/TimeFormater.cpp (line 79) where is:
*h = *m-(*m%60)/60;
and should be:
*h = (*m-(*m%60))/60;

 anonymous preset

 by google01103 on: Nov 14 2009
Score 50%

for me the default sound is not played for an "anonymous countdown".
It doesn't matter is I click or not the "play sound" button, for a sound to be played a file must be explicitly named - but it should use the "default for finished". The default sound file only seems to be for the predefined countdowns.


also be nice if there was a way to create a popup more visual by changing color and size

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.
