    Default KDE 4.2 BbalL widget invisble by default


    On every install of KDE 4 I've ever done the BbalL widget hasn't
    appeared to work. I just updated to KDE 4.2 (on openSUSE 11.1) and it is
    still invisible by default. I have a virtual machine running openSUSE
    11.1 and KDE 4.2 and it's invisible there too.

    The widget is installed as part of the kde4-plasma-addons package and
    there's a file called /usr/share/kde4/apps/bball/bball.svgz which is
    presumably supposed to the image used by default.

    I decided to poke around a bit and noticed that in the dialogue for
    specifying your own image the file types it filters the to include svg
    but does NOT include .svgz. If I create
    /usr/share/kde4/apps/bball/bball.svg by using

    Code:
    --------------------
    cat bball.svgz | gunzip > bball.svg
    --------------------

    then try adding an instance of the BbalL widget then the ball is now
    visible.

    I cannot find any mention this problem and yet in my experience it has
    always been there. Does anyone else see this problem? I'm wondering if I
    ought to file a bug report.
