That was a bit much but okay...
I have no clue what is happening there, it installs fine on both my 4.3.4 and 4.3.90 machines (both running karmic under the hood)
Maybe removing .kde/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/magic-folder and .kde/share/kde4/services/plasma-applet-magic-folder.desktop with rm and reinstalling the package via the widget explorer resolves it, but I can't promise it. - Jan 17 2010
Not really. What distro are you using?
Have you reopened the Widget Explorer after installation? - Jan 12 2010
Sorry, I only have a vague idea what could be wrong. Maybe the config isn't saved, as KConfig seem to only save on destruction. Maybe KConfig.sync() will help. I hope to accumulate some more reasons to update within this week, so I can't promise anything before sunday. - Nov 17 2009

Do you want .* to mean "All hidden files" or "Any File"? In the later, you have to use * only, or disable simple wildcards.

What you want is either *.{avi,ogg,wmv,mkv,qt,mov,mpeg,mpg} or *.avi *.ogg *.wmv *.mkv *.qt *.mov *.mpeg *.mpg. Simple Wildcards work just as in sh.

Just type it into the target box, or choose it in the "Select Directory" dialog (and yes, it works, I have tested this one several hundred times ;) - Nov 17 2009
You something like a daemon watching a certain directory and moves each file saved there according to magic folders rules? That isn't anything I would let a plasmoid do. Maybe a connected configuration (e.g. to configure both the plasmoid and the daemon from both the plasmoids config dialog and a standalone config dialog). - Nov 06 2009
I'm sorry for not answering in two weeks.
Yes, this is indeed a bug, and I think I fixed it. - Aug 07 2009
Did you use the graphical installer?
I'm not sure, but it appears to be broken. On Kubuntu it sometimes worked, but always gave an error message. Try to use plasmapkg -i plasmoidfile.plasmoid from the CLI. - Jun 15 2009
My bad, sorry.
I have forgotten to remove the protocol prefix kio uses, so you get URLs starting with "file://", which bash doesn't like.
I will fix that asap.

I will also add this "copy"-option. Really didn't thought anyone would want that, sorry. - May 17 2009
Right now it's kind of difficult to use it if you don't already know how. A word like "regex" is non-explanatory for newbies.

Indeed, but I haven't yet figured out how to make own translations, or even how to get a listing of all existing i18n-keys :(
Any suggestions where to look?

My suggestion is that you could use predefined filters for different kind of files. For example a video-filter, document-filter etc. Classifications that are common to sort into. All the user has to do is fill in the destination for the different classes. This way, the user also gets an example of how the regex is supposed to look, and can thus learn how to define own filters.

I will look into that. - May 08 2009
Theoretically yes, practically not really.
A the moment you have to set it up similar to using the script support, as the editor gui currently checks for existence of the destination. This will be fixed, read removed, in the next version. - Apr 23 2009
Will you move this widget to kdesvn by any chance?

not any time soon. It's to little to justify an account, and I think Script Plasmoids are better of on pages anyway.
However, I neither will I step in if someone else want's to take it there. - Apr 22 2009
Didn't got to develop anything the last week, but I will add your tip to my "Will be considered" list. - Mar 23 2009
Use complex regex instead, e.g. \.(swf|jpe?g|png)$. To enable them, uncheck wildcard. - Mar 19 2009
1. Downloaded the file, but "add widget" failed to locate it on my system.
2. Tried to install over internet resulting in following errors.
[Installation of /tmp/kde-snirp///100348-plasma-magic-folder_1.0.2.plasmoid failed]
[Installation of /tmp/kde-snirp/// failed!]

Both known, both not my fault. Those are either Bugs in KDE or in Kubuntu (I have 9.04 with 4.2.1, same shit happens to me all the time)

3. The widget does show in my "add widget" menu, but after adding it to my desktop, the following is displayed:
[Could not create a python ScriptEngine for the Magic Folder widget.]

Install python-plasma - Mar 18 2009
Thanks for reminding me. Should be fixed now. - Mar 13 2009
Not at all. Either you download it, then you go Cashew->Add new Widget->Install new Widget->From local File, click Next then browse to the *.plasmoid file and install it (the browsing part is fucked up for me, dunno about others),
-OR- (better way)
you go Cashew->Add new Widget->Install new Widget->Download, choose Magic Folder, click the Install-button next to it and then click close

(Button labeling might be subject to correction, mine are in German...) - Mar 12 2009
Indeed a solution, but not a good one.
I'll do add a button to the config, no problem. - Mar 11 2009
I originally intended to, but rushed in the end. But I'll get to it as soon as I can. - Mar 11 2009
Sorry for taking so long to answer.
I noticed this behaviour with some other of my codes, but I can't figure out why, but it didn't happen anymore after I added the size and margin fixes. - Mar 11 2009

I think there might be a problem with the uppercase F, it's almost a whole letter-width to far left: - Dec 23 2009

@cfigura: yes, it works now out of the box :D

@AM088: Do you get something like:
The installation of /tmp/kde-bizzlE6HdTB///100937-NixieClock.plasmoid failed.

followed by
The installation /tmp/kde-bizzlE6HdTB/// failed.

I get those alot, too, but it appears to be a problem with plasmapkg, as it always happens in combination with ghns :( - Mar 15 2009
When I originally wrote the clock (as a non-plasmoid), I used sys.path[0] to specify the location of the images and the configuration file. I've found that that doesn't work under plasma, and haven't been able to find a solution.

Replace it by nixiePath = self.package().path() + "contents/code/images/"
However, it still crashes, so this wasn't the only problem.
After a quick check I also removed self. from zoNa = self.zoNa[0]+"S"+zoNa[2]
It work with this two changes.

However... you have changed the code, right? In the new code are dozens of lines that cause trouble, mainly of the "x has no attribute y" kind. So I sended you the code that works for me(tm), maybe it will help you more then my comment...

  • [*]Please Tag it as "Plasmoid Script"
    [*]Upload it with plasmoid as extension, not zip (for GHNS)

  • Also, it won't start, neither in plasma nor in plasmoidviewer. I got the following backtrace:

    Sorry for inconvinience, I just figured that something must be misconfigured with my plasmapkg.
    It installs it correctly, yet still throws an error message :/ - Feb 23 2009
    bash: plasmapkt: command not found
    Hello. wont work for me on kubuntu w/kde 4.2.
    Perhaps I'm missing some python dependency?

    Nope, thymythos simply misspelled the command, it's plasmapkg, not plasmpkt ;) - Feb 23 2009
    Please change the value of X-KDE-PluginInfo-Name in metadata.desktop to lowercase, it won't install with uppercase letters.

    Could you please upload the *.plasmoid file without the surround tgz, preferably as first file?
    The way you packed it is interfering with GetHotNewStuff (Download new Plasma Widget) - Feb 22 2009

    Actually, I would be disappointed if the browser would not open a new tab on MMB. Perhaps Shift+MMB instead. Or make it optional. - Jul 31 2008
