Thread: kde 4.2 google gadget

    Default kde 4.2 google gadget

    I'm on openSUSE 11.1 x86_64 running KDE 4.2 from the Unstable repo (had same issue under x86 also; but had other performance issues leading to a x86_64 install). I add the photos widget from Google and get the widget with a black screen. In my .xsession-errors file I get:

    kwin: X Error (error: <unknown>[DAMAGE+0], request: XDamageDestroy[DAMAGE+2], resource: 0x181f156)
    Not a regular file: /

    Register qtwebkit_browser_element extension, using name "_browser".
    Register qt_system_framework extension.
    Register qt_edit_element extension.
    Register gst_audio_framework extension.
    Register gst_video_element extension.
    Register linux_system_framework extension.
    Register dbus_script_class extension.
    No permissions to access D-Bus.
    slide_shower.js:355: add new feed nature - Google Image Search

    fetchs.js:365: No permission to access network.
    fetchs.js:365: ReferenceError: Failed to construct native object of class XMLHttpRequest
    main.js:161: TypeError: kSlideShower is undefined
    However, if I launch ggl-qt and then add the photos widget it works fine. The same also happens with the rss reader widget (fails when adding via Add Widgets but works fine from ggl-qt. Also, first launching ggl-qt and then adding the widget via Add Widgets does not resolve the issue either.

    Now, is this by design (I must first launch ggl-qt before any Google gadget can access the network) OR is there a buried setting I need to change? If it's by design, what is the point of having Google gadgets show up in Add Widgets.

    Any help much appreciated.

    How do you run your Google Gadgets?
    I also have a similar problem with the widgets. I have always to run it like sudo, otherwise I can't see all the widgets.

    I created a symlink to the google gadget app in my KDE4 Autostart directory (ran this in a terminal [only works if KDE4] ln -s /usr/bin/ggl-qt ~/.kde4/Autostart/). Some google gadgets work fine while others seem to fail miserably (the games I've tried so far fail). And since the gadgets also only run on 1 virtual display, they're pretty much useless to me.
