Panel Spacer


Plasmoid Binary

Panel Spacer

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  9977
Submitted:  Sep 15 2008
Updated:  Dec 14 2008


This plasmoid let you put some blank space between the other applets located in a panel. You can set a minimum fixed size and/or allow the spacer
to stretch if there is free space on the right. Optionally, you can display a thin separator line.

This is useful if you want to place a plasmoid on the right in a panel, if you want to do logical groups of icons in your panel, etc.

Some ideas : there should be an easy way to do that in Plasma (maybe something to set the stretch factor or the minimal/maximal size of an applet directly from the panel-settings-toolbar ?). Moreover, maybe the plasma theme specs should be extended to include a SVG for separators.

Comments, patchs, code review (I\'m quite new to this) are welcome :)

- Kubuntu Intrepid package (checkinstall)
- Fedora 9 package by Phobeus, thanks ! More info here : http://www.floriansievert.de/linux/repo/english.html

This is a good idea.

Especially i like: "I'm a PanelSpacer so i'm quite useless here... Please put me in a panel !" ;)

Simply what I needed for my desktop.

The lack of this was actually keeping me from using a panel at all, so big thanks.

One note for anyone else that might run into the problem I had. The makefile installs the files to /usr/local/lib/kde4/plasma_applet_panelspacer.so and /usr/local/share/kde4/services/plasma-applet-panelspacer.desktop, but Plasma wasn't picking up the applet from that location on my system (Kubuntu 8.10 Alpha 6). This is easily remedied by moving the files to /usr/lib/kde4 and /usr/share/kde4/services, respectively. I'm pretty sure there's a way to tell CMake what directory to install to, but I was feeling lazy and that worked well enough for me. :)

There is a updated sign but the source is still 89304-panelspacer0.1.tar.gz and the Changelog:
- 0.1 first release.

Is this updated ?

sorry, I just added a kubuntu package. The source is not updated (I will do some minor cleaning but nothing important)

Other packages and comments about this package are welcome (don't know if it works)

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.
