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 https://github.com/ilpianista/applicationname-plasmoid cd applicationname-plasmoid/ zip applicationname.zip package -r plasmapkg -i applicationname.zip kbuildsycoca4
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.
