Description:

This is an activity containment that adds to the desktop the ability to group your widgets inside frames in various arrangements.
Currently there is a group that layouts the widgets inside a grid, one that puts them in a stack, one that puts them in tabs and one that leaves them free to move.

How to install
First compile it, so extract the package, go into the folder which was created with a terminal, and execute:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$(kde4-config --prefix) ../
make
sudo make install
kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental

After that open the "Desktop Preferences", select "Activity" and then from the drop-down menu "GroupingDesktop". Now you could relogin to make sure it will all go ok.
Now you have only to right click on the desktop, add a group, drop your widgets in it and enjoy!

Be aware that it requires at least KDE SC 4.5, cause 4.4 has some nasty bugs that will break it.

You can see a video preview (already old, actually) on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL0PU2-u0E8

You can find the most recent code on http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdeplasma-addons/containments/groupingdesktop/.
You can download it with "svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdeplasma-addons/containments/groupingdesktop".

 [Crash] Upgrade to 0.2

 
 by lbl on: Jul 23 2010
 
Score 50%

This is dedicated to everybody who upgrades from an older version to 0.2:

There's a change in the TabbingGroup (so all other's should have no problem) which changes the name of some config entries.
To fix it open .kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc and change all "SiteIndex" to "TabIndex".

Should then look this way:
[Containments][404][Applets][371][GroupInformation]
Group=3
Position=-60.083279967308,-7.32438063621521
TabIndex=0

That should fix it (at least worked for me)

I forgot some stuff:

Another name changed: it's right within the config for the group. It's now "Tabs" instead of "tabs" and "CurrentIndex" instead of "currenttab" (later one is not very important).

The entry should then look similar to this:
[Containments][404][Groups][3]
geometry=861,37,313,314
plugin=tabbing
zvalue=2

[Containments][404][Groups][3][Configuration]
CurrentIndex=0
Tabs=Wetter,Musik,Sonstiges

 Suggestion

 
 by TheBlackCat on: Jul 23 2010
 
Score 50%

Great idea! I have been looking for something like this.

I do have a suggestion, though. It would be nice if there was an option to change what sort of containment the widgets were told they are in. So for instance many widgets will behave differently if they think they are in a panel than they do if they think they are in a desktop.

So it would be nice if users could set your widget to report different containment types to the widgets inside it. That way, for instance, someone could put desktop widget in a panel, or panel widgets on the desktop. You could even allow people to set whether the widget should act as though they are in a vertical panel or a horizontal one. And if there are other types of containments that also change widgets' behavior (like the netbook containment or mid containment), this would provide even more flexibility.

Currently it is not possible. I have however asked for the inclusion of this in trunk, so i hope to find a solution once it's in.

What are advantages of Grouping Panel compared to an ordinary one?

Well, it has grouping support. So you can have more that one row and build more complex layouts.

 Wishlist.

These are my wishes.

1. Physics. I love what happens if you drag a plasmoid beyond the screen border in SC 4.5 with a Desktop containment. Can you replicate that?

2. Grid. Since SC 4.0 some of us have been crying for a grid to align Plasmoids to. Can you implement that?

3. Desktop switching in the containment, with previous/next buttons and a small indicator coverable by Plasmoids, as implemented by Aaron Seigo. Can you port that? ;)

Hi,

1) Yes, I can do that, but not so soon :) i don't find it so important, so i've other priorities.

2) I've already tried to do that. Actually it requires very little work, so expect to see it. I've only to decide some things like if it is better to do a new containment type or an option in the config dialog.

3) I don't think, sorry :) I find it rather unuseful while it requires a bit of work to do it. Without saying that it can be in the way when managing widgets. And with the new Activity switcher in 4.5 it will be anyway fast and easy to change it.

 Yet another request!

I compiled without the panel, and was wondering if you could somehow let the grouping widgets be differently/seperately themed? currently they seem to be using transparent-background.svgz.

Wonderful widget btw.

I guess i could make it load a new svg, but then the theme creators would need to do it. ;)
On the other hand i find that the current background fits quite well, so i don't know.

can you let it search for a custom svg, but if it isnt found then have it drop to transparentbackground.svgz?

I ask because if a plasma theme is doing some with the borders then it makes it look slightly odd : see screenshot (http://imagebin.ca/img/mgpM8dwy.png)

Another Bug to report is that the widgets seem to lose their rightclick menus when placed on to tabbing group, this isnt really all destructive for most widgets but for the folderview widget it makes it behave oddly since you cant drag folders around, and you cant right click to open dolphin.

after reading that bug description doesnt make much sense. To reproduce:

1.create tabbing group
2. place folderview in a tab
3. try to drag on of the files/folders displayed in the folderview
3. the whole folderview instead of just the particular grabbed file/folder moves.
4.right click folderview, you lose the options to sort icons and to open in dolphin.

Hu, i didn't notice that. Anyway it seems it happens only when i click on a non selected icon. I'll investigate on that.

As regards the svg, currently GroupingDesktop is in the process of being moved into KDE, after that i can see what I can do :)

So, I've moved Grouping Desktop to kdeplasma-addons.
KDE now has a nice wiki with a lot of documentation for the users. If you're willing to help you could write some documentation at http://userbase.kde.org/Plasma/GroupingDesktop .
It would really be appreciated! :)

groupingdesktop isn't in 4.5's kdeplasma-addons. you must download the sources and compile it, or wait for 4.6

Thank's! I will try to compile from sources.
Can you create the PPA for kubuntu users with your plasmoid? Because compiling from sources in not so easy process for not-advanced users, and after each KDE update they must do the recompile and reinstall.

Or you may add your package to any other ppa, for example, in this: https://launchpad.net/~samrog131/+archive/ppa/

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
