No Keyboard State widget.

Sun Oct 25, 2015 4:28 pm
Due to manual disability and my use of Sticky Keys [1] I do need the Keyboard State widget. How might I use the KDE 4 widget with Plasma 5? Thank you.

A Keyboard Status Applet: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=115234
(This seems to be same as the Ubuntu plasma-widget-kbstate)
The last comment is:
Since gitorious is closing down, the project seems to have moved here: https://github.com/xdarklight/keystate-plasmoid


The https://github.com/xdarklight/keystate-plasmoid has a plasma5 keystate plasmoid script.

As it is a script it can be installed with the plasmapkg2 command. man plasmapkg2:

PLASMAPKG2(1) Plasma Package Manager PLASMAPKG2(1)

NAME
plasmapkg2 - Install, list, remove Plasma packages

Thank you. Actually, the two projects are not related.

I did install the xdarklight Keystate Plasmoid and with a bit of fiddling, it works for my purposes. Thank you very much!
