Not sure why that is happening, this only requires my Widget Manager and Meecast. As far as I can see groff is in the Jolla repository so should be available. Maybe try manually installing groff using the following from terminal:


pkcon refresh

pkcon install groff

Hey, I'd  love to use the lockscreen manager and this widget. Can you maybe have a look at this:

Very nice. Though I hope you create the same kind of settings as upcoming events has to change the appearance. I have customized my upcoming events widget and now it looks a bit silly with the little differences to this widget.

After that, all that's required is the fine controls in the widget manager. If it isn't too hard to implement, a dim dummy preview of the widget in the boxes would be a great help too. They wouldn't need to show the actual views with personal calender entrys and current weather but just so one can get a better hang of it. Then one could also see how the widgets would actually appear. Currently I'm always a bit unsure how the widget is placed in the box when I'm positioning them.

EDIT: Whops, sorry. I didn't realize you had already implemented the fine controls. Well the widget preview view wish still stands.
