Hi dennis,

here is your code example:

        iconwidget = Plasma::IconWidget.new self
        layout.add_item iconwidget
        iconwidget.svg = "/tmp/ruby-test-applet/lcd_panel.svgz"

I just don't know how to use relatative paths. Relative to what?
So you will have to change the path to fit your folder.

People who just want to run to example extract in somewhere move to the folder 
ruby-test-applet and start the plasmoid in a special viewer with 
"plasmoidviewer". At least it works for me with kde 4.4 rc3 on opensuse

I think if you want to learn how to use svg graphics you should start with the 
weather applet (it uses svg for wind arrows), as it is less complex.
