View Full Version : [kubuntu] Plasma widgets not working

May 19th, 2009, 11:03 AM
I'm presumably being stupid, but adding widgets to my taskbar or desktop just doesn't work.

The only thing I really want is the 'Show Desktop' widget, which is shown as being available in the 'Add Widgets' menu. However, when dragged into place it just displays a big red cross with the error message "Unable to load the widget. Could not find requested component: showdesktop".

I'm very inexperienced with Kubuntu; all I know is that this used to work but doesn't now I have upgraded to Jaunty.

Can anyone help?

It works on my (clean) install of kubuntu jaunty.

I think that plasmoid is part of kdeplasma-addons.

Try doing:
sudo apt-get install kdeplasma-addons

Excellent, it works perfectly now. I knew it would be something straightforward. Thanks :)
