I was able to compile and install the weather plasmoid (and others) with no 
(or at least few) problems.

I'm trying now to install "multirows task manager" 
and I'm not the only one with problems although a few people have reported 
success, including someone who installed on SUSE.  I get errors similar to 
those found in the 3rd from last comment on the page in the link.  My thought 
was that the problem is that I am attempting to make install from the wrong 
directory, hence my question.
