 Hint

Hello,

this applet is very nice (works fine here in SC 4.4.2), but why is Pluto still in there? Since 2006 it is classified as one of many dwarf planets, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pluto

Yes, I know, I'm an astronomer myself. ;)
It's there for the old time's sake. It -was- a planet back then and someone might miss it. :oP

I can make a new version, in which the user can disable it, if he is an astro-puritan. :))
Because I'm an "old-school" astronomer, I personally would miss it.. O:)

Oh, sorry for carrying coals to Newcastle. ;-)

Maybe it would be nice to have an option of dis-/enabling dwarf planets. I have no idea, however, whether one can specify the orbit of Eris, Haumea, Varuna etc. at all.

Oh, no problem, you can bring all the coal you can carry! :-D (with the energetic crisis around, it would be quite welcome :) )

But now back to being serious. :)
I will add this option to enable Pluto (will be disabled by default), because you are right, of course.

"I have no idea, however, whether one can specify the orbit of Eris, Haumea, Varuna etc. at all."
No. There is currently no possibility to add other objects externally, because applet in its current stage isn't that much universal. Of course, with little retrofitting and knowing ephemerids of those dwarf planets (NASA is our friend here :)) ) it could be done, of course.

And.. thanx for your feedback!

P.S.: Please excuse my engrish, English isn't my primary language. O:-)

In kubuntu with KDE 4.4.2 I've installated it normally, with the "add plasmoid"

Good work ;)

Super! Thank you very much, stribianese91. :)

As I see, it's high time for me to compile some new KDE. :))

Nice little applet. The labels in the config dialog are being truncated on my system, you might want to expand them a little more.

Did you plan to add almost real (ellipse) orbits?

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.
