Submitted:  Mar 8 2011
Updated:  Aug 1 2011

Description:

A KDE plasmoid that shows active application’s icon and/or name. I think it is useful to use jointly the menubar. It is based on current app control. In fact, it would better if the active application applet was eventually part of the menubar applet.

To install:
- extract to a folder and once there
- mkdir build && cd build
- cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
- make
- sudo make install

Any (constructive) feedback is welcome




Changelog:

Version 0.2.2

- Fixed a bug that caused the applet to look ugly in light plasma themes

Version 0.2.1

- Fixed a bug that caused plasma-desktop impossible to be rebooted

Version 0.2

- Added options to choose whether to show only app name (default), only icon, or both.

- Removed extra left space

Version 0.1.2

- Truncated application names are more fancy now

Version 0.1.1

- Application names are kept to a single line

- Application names are truncated to 15 characters max.

First release 0.1

 RE: Problem with X11 Lib

The problems with the X11 Libraries is that you need to install a lib, you can install it on Ubuntu with
Sudo apt-get install libxtst-dev

 Suggestion...

It would be great if this was combined with the Window List plasmoid (http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Window+List?content=96486), so that when the name or icon of the application was clicked on it would show the window list.

I am trying to install it in Kubuntu 12.04 but when I execute "sudo make install" I find the following errors:


[ 0%] Built target plasma_applet_activeapp_automoc
Linking CXX shared module lib/plasma_applet_activeapp.so

Any help?

 Is this plasmoid abandoned?

OS: Chakra (x86_64), fully updated
KDE SC: 4.11.2

I love using active-app + the appemenu-menubar plasmoid on my multi-monitor setup but lately it is consistently crashing my session every time I log out (segfault 11 all the way).

It would be awesome if you can find the time to look what's happening as my KDE/Qt skills are very poor :(

Cheers!

It covers my basic needs and I don't have time for much now.

Are you sure this plasmoid is the one that makes plasma to crash? Show me the backtrace or some debug information and I'll try to take a look...

Btw my programming skills in KDE/Qt are low too :)

Hey, awesome, you're still interested in it ^ ^

"Are you sure this plasmoid is the one that makes plasma to crash? Show me the backtrace or some debug information and I'll try to take a look..."
Yes, 100% positive about that.
Sadly my distribution does not provide the debug symbols for QtWebkit - yet - so this is all I have right now: http://paste.chakra-project.org/5419/ (the paste will longer a month).
Here you can see the build script used to install Active-App: http://chakra-project.org/ccr/pkgbuild_view.php?p=kdeplasma-applets-active-app

And these are my make flags:
CFLAGS="-march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2"
CXXFLAGS="-march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2"
LDFLAGS="-Wl,--hash-style=gnu -Wl,--as-needed

(could it be something related with them? I'm just wondering... gonna tray with clean makeflags and see what happens)

Anyway, anything else just ask, I would love to use Active-App again.

Answering myself: the makeflags have nothing to do with the crash as compiling the plasmoid with a standard - and pretty safe - set doesn't have any effect.

I don't see anything in http://paste.chakra-project.org/5419/ that relates at all with the plasmoid, neither with plasma_applet_activeapp.so nor with plasma-applet-activeapp.desktop, so I have no clue to see whether your crash it's related to the plasmoid and if so, where to start trying to fix it :/

You are sure it's the plasmoid because if you remove it, crashes are gone?

Exactly, when I remove the plasmoid the session ends smooth, in contrast *every* time I add it back the session will segfault(11) crash at log off :(

You could also try the Application Name Plasmoid. I did and works fine to me too...

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
