Really love this plasmoid thanks However, it unfortunately doesn't seem to work when plasma is configured to have a different activity per desktop.
I have one desktop set up with a slideshow and the other just a single image. with the plasmoid on the desktop for the slideshow desktop clicking it does nothing.

Look forward to future releases

How about a more meaningful icon that shows a changing wallpaper?

Something like this maybe:

I don't think so. But let's see what Plasma/Qt brings for 4.4. Hopefully, better layouts.

Can you please add a tooltip? All other starter and widgets in the panel have a tooltip just yours is "silent".

I tried to set the keyboard short cut for this applet. I installed it from kubuntu jaunty repository. But the shortcut is not working. It will be good if can control it via a keyboard short cut so that I do not have to click.

This is a nice plasmoid - Thank You !


"when in slideshow mode"

Here with the Kubuntu Jaunty Jackalope (alpha-1) it seems to work even when wallpaper is in the image mode.

Thank you for your comment. Yes, it is a known issue. Image and Slideshow use the same plugin and I have not yet found a way to tell which is the used one. I should note this on the description.

That's great! Now I can use your widget to change my wallpaper via a servicemenu and just have to click your widget afterwards to see the new wallpaper (without the need to have a slideshow)! Thanks!

On KDE 4.4 you will be able to simply drop the wallpaper to the desktop.

But, what exactly does your servicemenu do anyway? :)

> But, what exactly does your servicemenu do anyway? :)

With a dirty trick of some file copying and a fixed name for the wallpaper I am now able to change the wallpaper via a picture's context menu in dolphin (and the picture for the splash and kdm). The new wallpaper just isn't shown until I relogin (or open the wallpaper configuration dialog and confirming it without changing something).

Now after choosing the new wallpaper in dolphin I just need to click on your widget to immediately see the new wallpaper on the desktop without the need to relogin or open the wallpaper configuration dialog.

I don't think it's a solution "for the masses". The servicemenu and a german explanation is here:
