Description:

You can check out the SuperKaramba web site at:

http://netdragon.sourceforge.net

Here is the FAQ:

http://netdragon.sourceforge.net/faq.html

And for you developers out there, here's the API:

http://netdragon.sourceforge.net/api.html

What is SuperKaramba?

SuperKaramba is, in simple terms, a tool that allows you to easily create interactive eye-candy on your KDE desktop. Currently, only linux is officially supported.


How does it work?

Theme writers create themes, or text files that define their widget. Then, they can optionally add python scripting to make their widget interactive. The possibilities are endless!


Here are just some examples of the things that can be done:

Display system information such as CPU Usage, MP3 playing, etc.

Create cool custom toolbars that work any way imaginable

Create little games or virtual pets that live on your desktop

Display information from the internet, such as weather and headlines


The possibilities really are endless!

Any questions, you can ask in our forum:
http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=67470

Or drop by IRC anytime:

irc.freenode.net #superkaramba

Thank you for your continued support while things are in transition.




Changelog:

Changes in 0.39:

- Themes now go to the background correctly when opening multiple themes at the same time
- itemDropped() callback now has x/y cooridinates
- Fixed the New Stuff dialog's installed status check marks for failed downloads
- Don't pop up the Theme Dialog when restoring a session and there aren't any themes saved in the session
- Local themes can now be removed from the theme dialog, although we don't delete the theme out from underneath the user. It is delisted so that they can change their mind later and run it again.
- Downloaded themes from New Stuff get moved to trash:/ when a user clicks uninstall so they can restore it if they wish.
- Better checks for libknewstuff when compiling.
- Using New Stuff where theme authors post url links instead of file downloads will now open in a browser window for the user. Beware that closing this without downloading a package will still leave it as installed as far as New Stuff is concerned. (shortcoming of KNewStuff)
- new format options for things like kilobits, kilobytes and gigabytes as listed on our sensor information page: http://netdragon.sourceforge.net/ssensors.html
- Many new functions added and the examples of how to use them:
callTheme - Pass a string to another theme
changeInterval - Change the refresh interval of the theme
createServiceClickArea - Create a Service-named Click Area Sensor
getIncomingData - Get incoming data passed from another theme
getPrettyThemeName - Get the pretty name of the theme
getServiceGroups - Get KDE Service Groups
getSystraySize - Get the size of the Systray
getUpdateTime - Get last updated time
managementPopup - Activates the Management Popup menu (i.e. SK right click config menu)
openNamedTheme - Open a new theme giving it a new name
removeClickArea - Remove a Click Area Sensor
run - Execute a command with KRun
setIncomingData - Set incoming data passed in another theme
setUpdateTime - Set last updated time
setWantRightButton - Set to 1 to deactivate management popups (i.e. SK right click config menu)
setWidgetOnTop - changes 'on top' status

Note: API documentation will be updated in the coming weekend, but there are examples of how to use the new functions in the download package.

The auther has already posted that he suspected slowdown in image rendering, which hasn't been pinned on Superkaramba yet, but he didn't state any problems with the overall functioning of lwp.
Please post your errors/question in the respective theme's forum, so that you can get this resolved.

Coincidentally, I've just installed it on my work machine that I've never ran lwp on, and it worked fine for me.
Although there was some quirkiness on the return animations of the detailed weather information graphic.

 Themes: no dialog

 
 by PARENA on: May 5 2005
 
Score 50%

None of the themes I've tried (like LiquidWeather++ 4.x and 5) work correctly anymore. When I right click on the theme (tried liquidw++ and soundmania) and select configure -> some_option_that_should_give_a_dialog, nothing happens. Console doesn't show anything either. Also, themes look broken, like LiquidWeather doesn't show the icon at all. I'm using python 2.3.5, KDE 3.4, Qt 3.3.3 and SuperKaramba 0.36, all compiled from source (gentoo).

 ugliest tray icon

 
 by puijob on: Jun 1 2005
 
Score 50%

The problem I have with the icon it's not that is a bomb, but its LOW quality. An application which is meant to provide eycandy for the desktop has the worst systemtray icon. That's a big drawback.
Why putting a *.xpm icon instead of a *.png?

that' great news. anyway, one more thing: i would sugest to make it a standard 22x22, not 24x24 as it is now. systemtray icons should have all the dimensions.

The systray icon should now be 22x22. Does it still look a bit different as far as size is concerned?

I've just installed the 3.7 RC1 version and I have to say that it's a big step forward. No more ugly icon, not to mension the great feature of hiding it (the systray icon).
Keep up the good work!

 Strange

 
 by phil on: Jun 6 2005
 
Score 50%

Hello community

I found a strange behavior with - I guess - superkaramba. Several superkaramba apps are running on my desktop (SuSE 9.0, KDE3.4.1). And there runs gkrellm with the gkrelltop-plugin. This plugin shows the 3 processes using most of CPU. My computer runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without any restart or reboot - Linux and KDE. After a while - about a day - everything slows down. Gkrelltop shows that the X-process uses 1%. The next day everything (really everything) runs even more slower. Gkrelltop show X with 2 %. This goes on and on and the machine gets slower and slower.
I thought this is a problem in KDE. I mean KDE is a big project and there could be any kind of memory problem one can imagine. After a KDE-restart everything was fast again and the Gkrelltop plugin shows quite normal. But a KDE-restart slows my work and so I tried to find another solution.
I found out that a superkaramba restart does exactly the same. So maybe there is a problem in superkaramba.
Does anyone of you observe something similar? Are the any known bugs concerning this?
I'd like to hear/read from you. Let's keep the discussion running.

It would be intersting to know what themes you are running when this occurs.

Thank you for your answer and sorry for the delay.

The following themes are running:
dbKalendar
evobiff
TubeClock
skSeti
liquid_weather
schedule
kTerrorAlert
aero-metar
Bior
moontool

I installed superkaramba (0.36) on another computer and started the same themes and I have the same phenomenon.
btw: I start superkaramba /path/theme1 /path/theme2 /path/theme3 and so on. I do not call superkaramba with any single theme. But I guess that's not the point.


Thanks in advance
phil

The correct way to debug this would be load one theme at a time to find out which one is causing this.

Loading all them and complaining just isnt going to work. You have to know which theme it is and then go from there.

Of course I'm trying to find out which theme it is.
And .... I'm not complaining. I asked if anyone has the same problem. After all it isn't really a problem - it's just strange. I found a 'workaround'.


Waiting for more discussion and debugging

What is the workaround?
And have you investigated it with different/less number of themes to limit which one may be causing the problem?

Congrats on this excelent new release of
Superkaramba, excelent work. Only have one question regarding this new release.
Did the function for text shadows got changed? It seems to draw shadows on text with the same colour of the text itself and not in black as it did before. For instance if a text is white, shadows also draw in white, making the text appear blured.

I don't think we touched any of the text shadow api. As this is a release candidate, I'm glad you reported this so we can look into it before 0.37 final.
Please post this as a bug on our sourceforge site so we can keep track of this.

This version would not compile for me. Oh well, an older version still is working. I'll wait for an rpm for suse9.3 before I try to upgrade again. Thanks anyway.

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.
