Description:

BirthdayList plasmoid shows a sorted list of coming birthdays, namedays and anniversaries from the selected Akonadi collection. Namedays and anniversaries can be optionally switched off. All events are sorted in a table, so you can easily select or reorder columns you want to see.

Namedays can optionally be aggregated by name (one line standing for all contacts that celebrate their nameday on the particular day) -> this is especially useful for frequently used names such as Peter, etc. In that case, individual contacts can be 'unrolled' by double-clicking on the aggregated name entry.
Names shown for aggregated nameday entries are taken from the selectable country-specific nameday calendar.

Many thanks to the authors of K Birthday Reminder (internal logic), Public Transport (visualisation) and EventList (Akonadi).

 Nameday does not work...

 
 by Seniazi on: Mar 10 2010
 
Score 50%

Hi

first of all, very good idea. Unfortunately it does not work as I would expect it to.
How can I configure it to compare the "Given Name" field of KDE address book with the selected nameday definition file?

For test purposes I created a contact named Beatrix (Nameday on 12.03) and selected the German nameday calendar expecting the new contact to show up in the list (without me having to set a nameday date per contact).

what am I missing?

The nameday definitions in the textfile for the particular language are not compared with the 'given name' field. This would be problematic, because there may be various variants of the name, or someone may have a less traditional name variant, which is not in the calendar but yet wants to celebrate a nameday on a particular day.

The way how this works is, that you have to create a special date field for the contact, where you will store his nameday. For instance, you can dedicate the anniversary field for this purpose, and then you can set the "Anniversary" field in the plasmoid configuration as your nameday field. If you want to use both namedays and anniversaries, you will have to create a custom date field for one of them. Creation of custom fields worked in KAddressBook 4.3 and below, unfortunately in KDE 4.4 you have to edit the std.vcf file manually.

I understand your argument regarding the use of 'given name'. However, inserting a date per contact is kind of inconvenient when you have moving namedays (I mean namedays that are not celebrated at the same date every year), as we have quite a few in Greece. I was hoping to be able to just change the definition file once a year to account for such cases...

Anyway, thank you for the applet and the prompt reply.

 Column width is too small ...

Thank you for creating this app.
I've got a problem with the column width of the name. Names with more than ten letters are not shown completly.For that the colunms of age and date could be smaller.
So far I can not find a way to resize columns.

Many greetings

faldo

Hi, you can resize columns by dragging the edge of the corresponding column header. If you later enter the configuration dialog and press OK, your column width settings will also be remembered and used from then on by default.

Thanks for that hint, I just wanted to complain that the name column does not show anything insteadt of three dots... :) Maybe the column edges should be made more obvious in the header part, at least with the themes I use (air, air for netbooks) i cannot see where the part is I have to grab and drag.

Alas the widget does not save the column width. After some minutes it resets the width, so that the name is not visible at all.

Hi,
please enter the configuration dialog when your column width settings have been adjusted and then press OK. The column width settings will be remembered.
You can try if it works by restarting the whole plasma (in the konsole, enter the following commands:
kquitapp plasma-desktop
kstart plasma-desktop

 please less minimum height

I just installed the lucid package from here. Alas the widget window has a fixed minimum height which is not necessary IMHO. Could you please change that so that the plasmoid can be made less high if needed? For me it is enough to have three rows of birthdays and with that it would fit in my layout for which it is now a little too high so that it overlaps other widgets.

Hej,

First of all, I really like that plasmoid, great work :)
I have a little suggestion: What would you think about the possibility to click on an entry and be able to send an email to the contact by that?

Windows decoration is Oxygen, but in its configuration, I checked "outline active window title" in "Fine tuning".
Widget style and color scheme is QtCurve. Font is Droid Sans.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
