At last someone has created a version of the Steampunk Orrery for Linux. It wasn't me I am afraid - so I can't claim responsibility for the coding. The developer 'joker' has used my graphics and my design but enhanced the javascript functionality in respect of the planetary movement and the co-ordination of the various components to take adavntage of the increased levels of animation available to plasmoids.

A very good job I say...

calendar.pngThe Steampunk Orrery requires the Plasmoids widget engine and the Marble Virtual Globe plugin is required for the widget to function. At the moment the instructions to install and operate are very sparse. Howver, if you are a linux user then you are generally more technically aware than a standard Windows user so hopefully you will be able to make this work for yourself. As I test the new widget (if I am able) I will create some documentation to allow more naive users to attempt the installation. Have a look at the widget instructions here. Download the widget from here.

The video is available to view here now at Vimeo : and at youtube

 


 

If any of you are Linux users and use the KDE desktop, please can you help me test the recently published Steampunk Orrery Plasmoid?
Let me know how you get on and what you had to do to get the thing installed. I have not yet been able to test as I am on my hols in the sunny IoW and when I get back the only machine I have available to test will be a Linux Mint 1ghz single core laptop. Such Unix/Linux skills that I have are also very rusty...

Any help testing would be really appreciated.
