Show kde activity name plasmoid

febrero 10, 2017

Introduction

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.
