SYSTEM WIDE INSTALLATION

ARCHLINUX : there is a package on aur i guess but it\'s old
if you want install the new one just install it using LOCAL INSTALLATION the script install doesn\'t work on arch

of others should be enough

just download extract and run

sudo ./install

NOTE THIS INSTALLER INSTALL PLASMA PANELS COLLECTION ON /USR/BLABLALBA so if you have installed kde in another not standard folder you need to edit the installer.









REMOVING

The file is installed locally
so you have to remove folder that you can find here

~/.kde/share/apps/plasma/layout-templates/

and here

~/.kde/share/kde4/services/


USE

-remove your panels
-right button on the desktop
-add panel
-add MAC panel for example


-FOR MAC STYLE YOU SHOULD CLOSE ALL APPLICATION AND REOPEN THEM TO SEE THE MENU BAR


-MAKE SURE YOU HAVE KDE 4.7.4 or higher IF YOU HAVE NOT YOU COULD HAVE PLASMA CRASH, IT DOESN\'T MATTER BECAUSE YOU CAN RE-ADD YOU PANELS BUT IT NOT SO NICE SEE AN APPLICATION CRASH


I WANT CREATE MY OWN PANELS HOW TOO FOR SMART ONE

Always like the option your panels offered. I am currently trying out an upgrade to plasma-desktop 4:5.4.2-1 Debian based KDE complete with all the kf5 libs and your panels do not appear anymore (only 2 options appear on right click on desktop servicemenu - Default Panel and Empty Panel). Can you please indicate what changes i must make to have your panels working again. I believe the changes have to be made to /usr/share/kservices and /usr/share/plasma as i wish to implement the changes system wide.

Thanks in advance for your great work.
