Thread: Installing new widgets

    Default Installing new widgets


    When installing new widgets by having the program download them frm
    KDE-looks.org i only get three widgets to choose from (none of which
    seem to work)is this simplya flaw of KDE that is yet to be resolved or
    is something wrong with my installation?
    There are a lot of widgets on the website that look intersting, but
    there seems to be no way of installing themwithout downloading the KDE
    developer packages first. Is there a workaround?

    Yes, i know, one of them (wolf) made plasma crash and burn when i tried
    to enable it. But that is still only a very small part of what's on the
    site, unless i am missing a repository.

    You should really tell us what version of openSUSE you are using and
    also your kde4 version.

    Sorry, yes of course. I'm using Opensuse 11.1 with whatever KDE 4 came
    with it. 4.1.3 i think.
    I'm connected to the factory repo (an attempt to clear up a problem
    with plasma forgetting customisations on logout) but i don't think that
    has been updated to a newer version yet.

    Make sure you have these repos

    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1'
    (http://tinyurl.com/72r3ru)

    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.1'
    (http://tinyurl.com/7gvvud)

    'Index of
    /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1_KDE4_Factory_Desktop'
    (http://tinyurl.com/a2s2ca)

    You will need to do update all in this list for each repo, use software
    management - filter by repo

    That does not seem to add much.
    In any case, i had hoped to make the "install new widgets from the
    internet", in the add plasmoid dialog, way work. After all, that's how
    it's supposed to be done no?

    If you mean 'Add Widgets', yes that is how it is done.

    kde-look offers all manner of features you can add, but it will require
    some skill on your part to install them. There is usually a link on the
    page in question offering install instructions, or the packager will put
    some info in a text file within the archive you download.

    FYI:
    I count 50+ widgets / plasmoids that I can add. And I haven't installed
    that many from the repo's, and none manually from kde-look. Although I
    am using 4.2 beta which is way more advanced than 4.1.3

    In the add widgets dialog? I guess i'll wait for 4.2 to hit factory
    then.

    Yes in the add widgets from right click desktop

    4.2 is in Factory (here is the root dir: 'Index of
    /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/) )
    it's 'unstable' - but actually works better than 4.1.3
