Taskbar v2 (flat + thumbnails)

Minimum required   KDE 3.3.x

A beautiful taskbar for kicker.

o flat and transparent (if kicker is transparent)
o animated thumbnail views (animation equations correspond to kpager2)

You probably need to restart kicker after adding the taskbar.

based on taskbar of kde 3.2

FIX the file modification times first:
find . -print -exec touch {} \;

(make -f Makefile.cvs)
make install

If it doesn't work, you probably need to remove the autom4te directory. Moreover, using mtaskbar.kdevelop will help in any case.

Have fun!

no changes, just new packages from third-parties

o fix: transparency on nontransparent kicker
o fix: 'on mouse hover and click' works again
o new: semitransparent buttons
o new: application exclude list for screenshots (usage: "className,windowRole;className,windowRole [..]")

o fix: definitely flickerfree
o fix: textcolor, now guaranteed readibility
o new: thumbnail will hide itself after 5 seconds (tool tip behaviour)
o new: apply icon effects (eg. toGray)

o transparency works now!!
o less flicker
o better thumbnail animation on small resolutions
o improved shadow style
o some new options

o new: shadows around text vs. text color
o new: smooth effects when blending in buttons
o fix: thumbnail flicker reduction
o fix: button flickers at window moving

o cleaner animations, animation enabled/disabled like in KControl
o disable animation if popupp was opened
o configuration: show buttons/ show thumbnails

o animated thumbnail views

o make taskbar flat and transparent

 Compilation problems

 by grek on: Jun 10 2006
Score 50%

I tried to compile taskbar but without any success. It always fails at "make" commend with this error:
mtaskcontainer.h:72: error: extra qualification 'MTaskContainer::' on member 'drawShadowText'
make[2]: *** [mtaskbar.lo] Błąd 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/grek/Desktop/mtaskbar-0.7/mtaskbar-0.7/mtaskbar/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Błąd 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/grek/Desktop/mtaskbar-0.7/mtaskbar-0.7/mtaskbar'
make: *** [all] Błąd 2

I use KDE version 3.5.2-0.2.fc5. Any ideas?

I'm not a cpp programmer, but I did find the problem. Just edit the mtaskcontainer.h file in the src directory. On or about line 72, remove the "MTaskContainer::" from the call to drawShadowText. It's apparently a new check for later versions of gcc.

 Some change

 by thufl on: Jul 8 2006
Score 50%

I made some changes to this mtaskcontainer.cpp that reflects my personal tasts :), hopefully somone can find it useful. Here are the changes:
1 - Make the task button font color changeable. I was lazy to create an input field in the Advance dialog option, so I use excludeList (first field if begins with #) in the form #FF0000
2 - Use the task name instead of "(...)" when the task is minimized.
3 - Keep the font color the same (no blending) when the task is minimized.
4 - If the task name is longer than can fit on the button, I used "..." at the end of the task name instead of the original blending at the end.

I know it is like Windows XP, but I m just moving to Linux from Windows so I need sometime to get used to the look and feel of Linux, so I m trying to make it looks and behave similar to Windows XP. Also, this is my first coding in C++ and QT (I m a java guy), so please forgive my dumbness

Please let me know how I m doing :)

Thanks and enjoy

 How to enable?

 by ksamvel on: Jan 24 2007

Well, I believe I have installed the application. configure->make->make install process went correctly but I do not see any differences.

How do I enable or start up given tool?

Is this a kicker applet that has to be enabled via kicker context menu?

And is it possible to get transparent buttons which become non-transparent (like it is in kicker without your patch/applet) but with those very nice and useful screenshots as tooltips?

Want excellent hardware recognition? Get KANOTIX! Also want an easy way to install Debian Sid? Get SIDUX :)

 Compatibility with KDE 3.5.10

Hi, I like this taskbar and I am using it quite long time without any problem. But unfortunately it is somehow not compatible with kicker 3.5.10. Would it be possible to fix it?

Thank you!

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.
