Hi again,

keep up your good work! I really like PlayBar a lot and I don't want to do without it.

The only thing I really got used to is using my media keys on my keyboard for which I have to use Play Control still. If you could integrate that functionality that would be great. I know you mentioned that it is already on your TODO list...sorry for my impatience ;-)

Hi. Sorry for the delay. I had seen days ago but I was still investigating

1. I have not implemented the shortcuts because the QML/API does not offer me that option. So it's not as easy as I thought. :(

2. I have found a way to add shortcuts :D, meaning through a plugin in KCM
that will be written in C++ means that the plasmoid would cease to be a plasmoid Script and would become a plasmoid Binary.

3. I was thinking a lot and I realized that I do not care if it becomes a binary plasmoid. Because I also want to add shortcuts. But you'll have to wait a little longer :D.

Thanks for your patience

If you have nothing in your playlist, there's nothing to play. xP
However you gave me a great idea. :D

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
