Plasma is the component of the [[KDE]] project that actually displays the desktop (i.e. wallpapers, panels, etc) using 'containments'. The containments are capable of containing other widgets called plasmoids.

==Get new plasmoids==

You can get new plasmoids from [http://www.kde-look.org/index.php?xsortmode=new&logpage=0&xcontentmode=70x77x78&page=0 kde-look.org].

There are a large amount of plasmoids in the AUR, including {{AUR|kde-extragear-plasmoids}} which collects popular plasmoids from [http://www.kde-look.org/index.php?xsortmode=new&logpage=0&xcontentmode=70x77x78&page=0 kde-look.org] and places them in a single package.
