Depends on  KDE 4.x
Downloads:  234
Submitted:  Mar 15 2013
Updated:  Nov 7 2013

Description:

A rudimentary nested Windowmanager, tiling clients vertically, horizontally or a row or column oriented grid.

NOTICE:
This is NOT intended as full featured windowmanager (tiling or not), but as sidearm to combine some windows in one.

It will work with most windowmanagers, for KWin you currently have to keep WORKAROUND_KWIN enabled (a workaround including a usleep...)

More thought for playing around and to trigger some feedback.




Changelog:

0.2
---
* fixed QApplication API invocation (geee, that's really picky ;-)
* added two apparently prominent tiling modes (with a major window and many sidearms)
* regrab button for the active tile when the window gets deactivated (thus the focus usually somewhere else)
* use a QMainWindow (to get the menubar integrated with the decoration or the panel in case)
* added license stuff

0.3
----
* Added Ctrl+Tab shortcut to cycle tiles
* added "--title" switch
* added "--rowlayout" or "--collayout" custom layouts
* added hinting label for the switches ;-)

0.4
-----
* added dbus interface, supporting "toggle" and "toggleMenu" to be used eg. by khotkeys
* added dock mode (eg. "--dock topLeft", "--struts"
* releasing windows on sigsegv

0.4a
------
* fix slide hint and struts for some dock modes
* add KStyleFeatureRequest hint for shadows on docks (applies to recent bespin and upcoming oxygen)
* added "quit" to dbus interface

0.4b
-----
* Only grab ctrl/ctrl+numlock + tab

0.5
------
* Grab ctrl+alt/ctrl+alt+numlock + tab for cycling the active window

 Tab button stops working

When I put a window into Kontainer, Tab button stops working in it.

E.g. I can't use autocomplete in Konsole.

I'm using KWin. Is WORKAROUND_KWIN enabled by default?

Yes, but that's not related (is required to actually embed sth.)
The tabkey should only be taken when ctrl is held.
I'm looking into it.

It's a awesome application! Can you to add ability to start Kontainer with some other apps, I mean something like that:
kontainer --rowlayout '1 x 0.6:0.4' --apps "livestreamer twitch.tv/krakenslair mobile_low ; konversation"

As you can see, I use Kontainer for watching streams on twitch.tv with custom player and direct connection to IRC-server. Will be useful to start all applications inside Kontainer with one command =)

Not this way, because there's a difference between windows and processes.

What however would likely be possible was to specify some window attributes (class, type, title; "class" is *usually* a case insensitive variant of the process name) and autoadd them when they show up ("if" in the next ten seconds or so) - similar to how kstart operates.

 Key binding for switching window?

 
 by kindlychung on: Nov 7 2013
 
Score 50%

Is there a keyboard shortcut for switching windows within the kontainer?

Currently there is the ctrl-tab, which swaps positions of windows, but it would be better if there is also a shortcut to change the Focus to another window, like the ctrl-w h j k l keys in Vim.

Thanks, I really like this app!

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
