Web slice

I'm using 4.4rc3 atm (the one that's on Lucid).

A fun hack with the "web slice" plasmoid

- Add plasmoid

- In settings, have:

Element to show: #sidebar

Voila', you got the "news" section of osnews on your desktop. You do need to adjust the size for readability.

This might work with earlier kde too, didn't check.

This is one plasmoid I'm going to have some fun with for other websites as well...

This, sir, is a hell of an idea.

I'm not on Linux+KDE, but you can do something similar on the mac side.

The benefits of the new OSNews interface keep on piling!

That's a new feature in 4.4 and isn't available in earlier KDEs. Glad you like it. :-)

Within a GNOME session run ''plasma-desktop''. Sounds weird, but actually works (clicking on Logout in Plasma shows GNOME's logout window -- FDo and dbus FTW)
