The new and improved Dial-A-Task'omatic allows you to:

1) Switch tasks by scrolling over the active window's Title Bar, a'la ALT-Tab.[To be clear, the functionality is similar to Alt-Tab, and the highlighted task is selected when the cursor leaves the frame of the active window.]

2) Shade and Un-Shade a window

3) Send a window ALWAYS to the fore or background

The Kwin dev I emailed was skeptical of its usefulness but said that he'd consider including it when completed. If you like these features vote for them to be included in the mainline kwin here:

The screenshots are of the new Window Configuration options available and the Alt-Tab switcher (which you can also see by pressing Alt-Tab)


Despite my earlier pronouncement, jrch2k apparently didn't get sick of me or sick of the project and sent me this diff a couple days ago.

The readme.txt has the instructions

Good Luck, and thanks to jrch2k who did a great job programming the whole thing.

Just though it would be even more practical to display or not the "alt+tab" window while scrolling.
What do you think ?

Have a nice day.

How about requiring you to hold down the CTRL (or some other modifier) button while scrolling, and letting go of the CTRL button activates the selection? Otherwise, how do you determine what program will be activated, when the cursor leaves the title bar? That's not so practical.

WinDec doesn't have any mouse events, so it can't get in the way of things.

How about another option: Scrolling over the title-bar changes the desktop, but bringing that window with you. IE: I am on Desktop 1, but want my Konsole window on Desktop 2. I could right-click to do so, or if I have a graphic pager, drag it to that desktop -- or with this option, I could put my mouse over the title bar and scroll until I am on Desktop 2.

I used scroll events in KClip (here or at kde-apps.org) to do desktop switching, so the actual code is really simply. (I was new to C++/QT at the time.)

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.
