Is there a chance you'll port this useful plasmoid to KDE5?
Thanks

any chance there could be a setting for using a keybind to make this plasmoid show? This could make it a viable replacement for Yakuake with better integration, appearance-wise

Hi,

Hotkeys to switch between Tabs would be nice. Like ALT+Left like in Konsole it self.

If you could add some option to the plasmoid, like binding the plasmoid to a specific konsole profile AND to launch an executable at boot (if i ask one for tab, am i asking too much?)

Hi,

The plasmoid works well on KDE 4.6.2. Transparency of the outer box is working. (It adapts to my plasma theme). The terminal area does not follow transparency, but I'm not bothered by that. (In fact it's perfect for me like this)

These are the kind of plasmoids that should be included in the main KDE distribution. I totally helps me getting rid of that Konsole window I always need to have open somewhere.

One thing though: it does not seem to remember the number of tabs opened in the last session, so that they are reloaded.

I got a nice screenshot of my plasma desktop with plasmacon:

…would really, really be awesome. Any chance that is still coming?

Btw. I can confirm the menu-placement bug.

Thanks for your work!

BUG: The context menu opens in the wrong position: if you click right mouse button at the _relative_ (relatively to the Plasma widget position) coordinates (x, y), the menu opens at _absolute_ screen coordinates (x, y).

I run two instances of this concurrently and any resizing I do does not persist after logging out. On my desktop I need the two instances I have to be differnet sizes but when I log out, they both end up at the size of the one that I last resized.

Does anyone else have this weird behaviour of the context menu:

http://www.cyrilbrosch.net/plasmocon_menu.png

It doesn't pop up over the plasmoid, but up to the left. In the picture I'm clicking in the plasmoid where the curser is. When I click in the lower right corner, the pop-up menu appears appr. in the mid of the screen.

The menu is fully functional, however, only the position isn't right.

Hullo,

could you list which files exactly your script depends on? I'm trying to get it working on Gentoo and there is no "python-devel" package here.

In gentoo it depends on kde-base/plasma-workspace with USE="python".
