Flexible Tasks

Minimum required   KDE 4.x

Description:

UPDATED for KDE 4.6

This is a fork of the tasks applet you know from KDE extended by some extra features. Version 0.2 is the same tasks applet as you have in KDE 4.6.2 + the "icon only"-mode.

The inital additional feature to the common task applet is to hide the text labels of applications - just displaying the icons. Cudos for the feature itself goes to the plasma-devs. Since KDE 4.5 the taskbar will hide the text-label if there is "not enough room". I just added an option to force this behaviour. The plasma-devs have rejected this as a configuration option for the vanilla tasks applet.

REQUIREMENTS (tested, might be lower):
- You need a working GNU Compiler toolchain.
- Cmake
- KDE >= 4.4 Headers files (kde development packages)
- QT >= 4.6 Header files (QT development packages)


HOW TO INSTALL

In the main directory run
- cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
- make
- make install/strip (as root or: sudo make install/strip )


The applet is named "Flexible Task Manager" in the applet list.

 Cannot find widget

I compiled/installed with no errors, but this just does not appear in the widget list. KDE 4.6.5/Ubuntu 11.04 (well, it WAS until I dumped Unity like a red-headed step child after about 10 minutes of use).

Did I miss something?

Thank you, kind sir. I couldn't look at default task manager after trying Flexible Tasks. Now I can use it again.

Well - the best way would be to take the tasks applet from KDE 4.7 and applying the patch on it. Currently I have no KDE 4.7 development environment available, so I cannot do it myself at the moment.

Instead of waiting to November maybe you could try some other distro (like OpenSuse in LiveCD mode) to fix this? Soon there will be KDE 4.7.2 and still no update for such good task manager :c

 About the 4.7 version.

So, should we wait for a kde4.7-compatible release some time soon or do we have to pursue alternatives to this lovely widget? I really don't want to switch to something else because this widget fits me perfectly and I have grown to love it during the past months.

Well, actually there are really good alternatives that make this widget obsolete.
There is IconTask available for KDE 4.7.
And in KDE 4.8 this Icon-only alternative to the taskbar is already integrated.

So it really makes sense to switch. This modification made sense in prior KDE times but not anymore

In that case I have to thank you for the hard work you have put on this widget. It has been extremely useful to me.

Thanks. But it was really not hard. I think the difference to the default version is just one line.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
