Submitted:  Mar 24 2009
Updated:  Nov 6 2010

Description:

This is a fork of mbaszczewskis STasks plasmoid. For the original STasks code go there:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/STasks?content=99739

This taskbar replacement has window peeking similar to Windows 7 when you use the kwin 'highlight window' effect. Even if this effect is not used you can click the tooltip in order to activate the corresponding window.

About Launcher Support, Grouping and Sorting:
A feature often requested in the comments is support for launchers and a more comprehensive context menu. Because the information about which task items there are, their grouping, sorting and state (minimized, demands attention, is active, ...) and even their context menu is all provided by libtaskmanager, such feature requests should be directed to kdelibs. I wrote a wishlist entry in the kde bugtracker for these features: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=207902 If you want this feature vote for this wish.

Update:
Launcher support exists in KDE 4.6. I will incorporate this feature once KDE 4.6 is available in Fedora (and I have time).


Update 2:
I pulled all changes made by flupp and jimi312, which amongst other things add launcher support. You can download the most recent source directly from the mercurial repository:
https://bitbucket.org/panzi/smooth-tasks/get/tip.tar.bz2

However, because I experienced some bugs with the launcher support (sometimes they are shown when the associated app is running and sometimes they are not shown when the associated app is not running) I did not make a new release yet. If I can find the bugs in a few hours tomorrow (2nd Apr 2011) or flupp/jimi312 fix them I will make a new release. I don't know how much time I have to work on Smooth Tasks. :/

Update 3:
The mentioned bugs concerning launchers seem also to be present with KDE's original taskbar, so I think the bug lies in libtaskmanager and not in Smooth Tasks.

Bugreports and Wishes:
http://bitbucket.org/panzi/smooth-tasks/issues/

Packages:
Debian, Ubuntu and Fedora have official packages.

Fedora:
sudo yum install kde-plasma-smooth-tasks

And to get meaningful backtraces:
sudo debuginfo-install kde-plasma-smooth-tasks

Note: I didn't check the validity of any of these packages!

Poll: Which Layout should stay?
I have created a poll about which of the various layouts supported by Smooth Tasks should be kept and which I can drop:
http://twtpoll.com/dm5m96

Please participate in this poll so I know whether I have to bother with supporting all of the currently provided layouts. In case you do not use multiple rows please choose the first option. In this case most layouts should look the same anyway.




Changelog:

wip 2010-11-06:
FIX: drop whole groups onto pager (removed workaround for KDE < 4.5 which could not handle groups at all)
FIX: when dragging a task only a tiny bit it's position was not reset
Maybe FIX: a very rare tooltip positioning bug (I have o wait if it reoccurs)

wip 2010-11-05 update 1:
FIX: fixed unwanted highlight behaviour change which reintroduces flickering :(

wip 2010-11-05:
FIX: tooltip appearance and background blur under KDE 4.5 (someone once sent me a patch for this but I cant find this message any more so I figured it out myself by looking at KDE sources)
FIX: less flickering for the kwin highlight effect

wip 2010-02-27:
FIX: less flickering for the window preview effect because I removed the kwin highlight effect bug workaround (that bug was obviously fixed in kde 4.4)
FIX: crash when right-click on startup item, thanks to anonymous

wip 2010-02-13 update 2:
FIX: hopefully fixed bug concerning missing taskbar entries

 Shadows in kde 4.7

 
 by HugoPereira on: Oct 16 2011
 
Score 70%

Hello, with the new shadow system introduced in kde for KDE4.7, the smoothtask tooltips get a new shadow (installed by the widget style) on top of the plasma one, when using oxygen as a style, and it does not look good.

See screenshot at:

http://i.imgur.com/B8RpI.png

To "fix" this, simply add:

setProperty( "_KDE_NET_WM_SKIP_SHADOW", true );

in TooltipWidget's constructor.
(... I know: there is no documentation for this)

Cheers,

Hugo

Same problem on Ubuntu with 4.8. Some classes were removed from libtaskmanager in 4.8.

 Smooth-Tasks Outdated

 
 by joergm2706 on: Jan 9 2012
 
Score 63%

Don't worry about smooth-task, this addon is outdated. You can use the build-in successor in KDE 4.8, which will be installed with the plasma-widget-addons. This is called there symbol window-bar (or similar, my desktop is in german language).

The flupp's Smooth Tasks Fork seems to work excellent.

Yes. The flupp fork with this patch seems to compile and work fine on KDE 4.8 RC2

Hi! I am on gentoo and smooth-tasks is in portage which did the installation for me. Can you tell how this patch is applied?
Thanks!
PS: The "symbol windowbar" in kdeplasma-addons is nice but lacks the ability to display text.

Download the flupp source

Save the patch as say fix_kde4.8_compilation.patch

Apply to the source with

patch -p 2 < fix_kde4.8_compilation.patch

compile as per instructions in INSTALL file in source folder

I guess upstream took up Icon-Tasks: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/Icon+Tasks?content=144808. So long smooth-tasks, you worked like a charm for 2.5 years.

Yeah, icon-tasks is more compact than the standard task manager, but it still lacks smooth-tasks' expanding entries on mouseover and/or focus.

Yes. That is why I am continuing to use smooth tasks.

Icon tasks also has no option to disable automatic grouping, which is another major annoyance.

@Dhraakellian

Thanks for making me eat my words, as I too noticed the lack of expanding tasks when I started using icon-tasks. Okay, off to compile flupp's fork.

I think the look, feel and concept is very good, but on openSuSE 12.3, KDE 4.10.5 when selecting a task running on a desktop other than the one the widget currently resides, causes Plasma to crash, every time.
bummer,
Landis.


the Right is right the Left is wrong.

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
