your problem is that this plasmoid is badly done. i've tried to compile it
and i've found out that the CMakeLists.txt is badly made and will only work
when full compiling plasma, that it won't link against qtwidgets, task
manager and kdelibs (i don't know how it would been able to work out showing
the apps on the bar when not linked properly). after fixing the
CMakeLists.txt it would configure properly but won't build due to errors in
the code. i've attached the CMakeLists.txt so that you could try it out, but
i think it won't work. i've looked in the comments of the people and it
fails at the same point where it fails on my box, but i've seen there was
someone being able to compile it on opensuse 11 factory. try sending him a
private message in kde-look.org and see how he has done.
