A reminder to whoever edits pages

This page refers to KDE 4.1. Please don't include descriptions about features present in SVN. A new page will be made once 4.2 hits at least beta stage. --Einar 11:34, 1 October 2008 (UTC)


This page has a lot of good information but it is laid out as a FAQ. Consequently it is rather long and unstructured. I think that it would be good to have a shorter, structured entry linking to other entries for specifics (eg KRunner, desktop containments).

Perhaps this page could be kept but moved to Plasma_FAQ.

I have started creating smaller articles on parts of plasma, such as Plasma application launchers.

It used to be a FAQ, actually. It was historically developed as a means to stop the trolls by giving answers to common questions. I wouldn't mind restructuring the document, however I can do big edits only in weekends.

Fedora has finally got 4.1 onto the mirrors, so there are going to be a lot of questions about Plasma, as more people try it for the first time.

I was totally baffled when I first saw it, so I gathered together a list of things that I had intended to be an Introduction to Plasma page - not as it stands, but to use for inspiration. I have it on googledocs.

Would it be helpful at all to give you access to that? I'll need your email addresses, if so (send to annew at kde dot org). --annew 11:02, 11 September 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I think it would be nice to mention something about placing application shortcuts in the panel (aka like quicklaunch applet used to do). is it possible, if yes, how to do it? :) (I think the current solution is to use 3rd party quicklauncher plasmoid?)

Einar and maninalift are already re-working the plasma page. If you want to help them you can reach them via their talk pages, from the links above. --annew 11:38, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

I already built a skeleton of a page to serve as an introduction to Plasma, not linked yet because it's very sketchy, but unfortunately the UserBase downtime prevented me from working on it when I had the time --Einar 17:23, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

I made a HOWTO on the forum for configuring the panel, see here. Einar mentioned it could be added to userbase. But first i'd like it to be proof-read. What do you think? --Neverendingo 15:18, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Link added to Tutorials. --Mark Ziegler 15:51, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
  1. 2.6 points to th zui demo, not a video showing panel configuration. --88.97.17.41 10:35, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Changing Plasma "front page"

During the last meeting of the Community Working Group, I presented a sort of template for all application pages (see User:Jucato and Konversation). I'd like to apply that to this Plasma page as well. But that will entail a major reorganization of all Plasma-related pages. So, following the contribution guidelines, I'm giving a heads up notice and will wait for comments for a week. I'll also try to get in touch with the people who made major contributions to this page. --Jucato
