La entrega

febrero 12, 2017

Salvo menores,
todo analizado,
aquí se ha acabado,
brota nueva vida,
que ha empezado.

Dos vinilos,
uno resultante,
del otro fuente.

Resarcir la afrenta,
objetivo inalcanzable,
mas suavizar la misma,
mi objetivo loable.

Mi olvido reafirmo,
sepa vuestra merced,
tercero desde aulos,
resalto buscado.

El segundo figurante,
por fin coronado,
mas aquí sólo honrado
y bien acompañado.

De la música disfrute,
de lo que no llegó,
para siempre: ¡Descarte!

Show kde activity name plasmoid

febrero 10, 2017


I use Kde activities a lot and I want a simple plasmoid which shows the current activity I’m in. I have so many activities that the activity switcher (not sure of the correct name) would be too big for me to be usable.


There’s a plasmoid which it’s aimed originally aimed at showin current application name which we can install and setup so that it shows current activity.

Its name it’s applicationname-plasmoid .

Fetch and Installation

This installation it’s aimed to your current user. It won’t make the plasmoid available for the rest of the users of your machine.

git clone
cd applicationname-plasmoid/
zip package -r
plasmapkg -i


From a panel. Add graphical items. Filter by ‘name’ or search for ‘Application Name’. Double click on it for adding it to the panel.

Then right-click on it. Settings. Select «Always (never display app title)» at the «Show activity name» dropdown. You can optionally set a fixed width too. Finally you just need to click on OK to save the new settings.

curl -sL |\
 sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install nodejs


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git

This is one of the two components needed. It’s an auth server.
