Is there a KDE Plasmoid for xeyes?

In both MATE and XFCE, there is an applet for xeyes, which tracks the position of the cursor.

(Eyes applet in MATE desktop).

Is something similar available on KDE Plasma?

The nearest thing I found is the following GitHub project, but it does not have any installation instructions. Does anyone know how to use it? https://github.com/c0d3xd3v/qt-tuxeyes

lxqt got qeyes :slight_smile:

I think you want xorg-xeyes but it doesn’t work on Wayland just so you know.

Hi, just made an account to let you know I am working on this :eyes:

As you can see, is currently just a very bare-bones prototype so will contain bugs :bug: It’s currently just manual install but I plan to add it to the KDE Store once is polished

How does it work?

  1. Loads and runs a KWin Script on the fly
  2. Creates a D-Bus service
  3. The KWin Script sends the cursor position to the D-Bus service
  4. The widget gets the last saved cursor position from the D-Bus service

Basically service.py takes care of KWin side and the widget itself uses some math to react to that
