Remember the milk plasmoid in playground
The remember the milk plasmoid now has a new home in the kde svn repository. You can check it out with
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/base/plasma/applets/rememberthemilk
Note that it requires both the librtm library and the rtm dataengine, both of which are also in playground.
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/libs/rtm librtm
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/base/plasma/dataengines/rtm rtm-dataengine
Build librtm first, then rtm-dataengine and finally the plasmoid. Once they are all installed, run
where CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX is the what you specified on the command line (i.e. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=”/local/install”). This defaults to “/usr/local”.
With any luck, you’ll be greeted with the following applet:
If so, pass go and collect $200. Next, you should click on “configure” and in the page that comes up, log in to your Remember The Milk account. You do have one, don’t you? (if not, visit http://rememberthemilk.com to remedy that)
After you have authorized the plasmoid and it asks you to close your browser window, click ok to have the applet get its final piece of configuration, the authentication token. This token is stored so you don’t have to re-authenticate all of the time.
You should now see your tasks in the applet. By clicking on a tab at the top you can change which list is displayed. Currently, the highest priority tasks are shown at the top.
