That's a good idea, I added an issue for it on github. But I don't have much time at the moment, so don't expect anything, sorry :(.

I tried a few times to install these extension on my KDE 5.10, but nothing happens. I can't, I think it's a compatibility issue. Please, fix it! :)

Up to now, I can't find these widget from the default widget installer. Neither from the Discover. How can I install the package manually?

You can drop the .plasmoid file onto the (unlocked) desktop. A menu with an "Install" option will appear.

Works perfectly, sorry If I'm too late. :)

Anyway I would like to ask you some implementations:

- If you can add the possibility to include also the .plasmoid icons as a separate list,
- If you can add a setting to order the icons like a grid or list.
- If you can add the docklet function (also to places widget)
- If you can add a search bar to the programs list in the PL settings and consent the multiple selection of more programs at the same time.
- Also I would like to ask you If you can add a menu setting to pin the programs directly to the Popup Launcher when are opened on the KDE panel.

9 Oh my. I've been looking for this for about a year. I love new Plasma abilities and how it looks, but i hated it's disability to make user feel satisfied when trying to launch apps.
Launcher are ugly in this DE, and this addon helps one to categorize launchers by their options.
Good luck man (guessing), u did a good job here

Can you please make the icons in the configuration dialog follow the "small icons" settings? I have set that minimum icon size to 32x32 but the icons in the widget configuration are much smaller?

Again, I'm using the plasma units (which are fixed). I don't know if it is even possible to access the icon size config option from a plasmoid.

Only the categories for office and utilities including their submenus appear in the list to choose applications from. No other categories. I cannot e.g. add amarok (multimedia category), I cannot add kpat (games category), I cannot add krusader (system category) etc. The list of applications just ends after the last app of the utilities section. Maybe you don't have much apps and the space is sufficient to display all categories? Here the categories Settings, Development, Graphics, Internet, Educaton, Multimedia, Games, System, Wine are all not listed, only 12 office apps + 27 utilities + some deleted and some hidden apps... I am using Plasma 5.5 (Netrunner 17 + kubuntu-ci).

So does the scrolling not work? Can you double check that.
All I can think of right now is to install plasmawindowed and run "plasmawindowed org.kde.popupLauncher" in a terminal and see if there are some useful messages. Maybe there is a dependency missing or something.

Scrolling does work, I can scroll up and down and see all applications in office and utilities but nothing more. The output in the terminal: http://pastebin.com/5giSwMT3

I added some error logging in version 1.1. Could you please send me the output again.
It should print messages like:
"Error: Menu category ... does not exist"
and
"Warning: Menu category ... has no entries"
Btw. you can look up the menu entries yourself using the application "plasmaengineexplorer" and selecting the data source "apps".

Though the icon I use for the popup launcher is a svg it gets ugly scaled up on my panel. The icon (e.g. system-file-manager.svg from breeze theme) looks fine in the panel when used for a single launcher or the quicklaunch widget, but has horrible steps in vertical lines and bad rendering when used for your widget (looks like a png of 32 or 48 scaled up to 64). I have a relatively high panel (the minimum size for getting a two row systemtray).
