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".

 Bug report / feature request

 
 by OdinEidolon on: Aug 20 2010
 
Score 50%

Hi! I noticed that with the tabbing group the plasmoids do not resize according to the size of the tabbing container (for instance with a folderview, the folderview itself can be larger than the tabbing container).
If would be nice if the features present in the floating group (nice resizing, intelligent positioning and so on) were avaiable in the tabbing group too.
I do not know if it is a bug or if it is not implemented yet. Of course if you need more infos I'm here.

Just to let anyone know, for some time already the tabbing group in the svn version places its children in a grid.

First, good job!
Is there a way to set the background color of the 'grouping widget' to transparent?

no, it uses the translucent widget background and you can't change that.
it's a bit that i'm thinking if it should have a custom background, anyway it won't be changeable by hand. it would be defined by the theme, like everything in plasma.

you really have "class Handle : public QObject, public QGraphicsObject" ? it is not like that in the source, that is just plain wrong. remove the "public QObject,"

 Crashes...

I would love for this to work and I've compiled and install 0.2.1. I've managed to get a containment to display on my desktop, but as soon as I try to manipulate it, like changing its size, it crashes plasma-desktop. I also seem unable to add widgets to the containment. Is this no longer being maintained? That would be a shame.

did you download it from here? this version is quite outdated.
it is now in kdeplasma-addons so most probably your distribution does provide a package for it.
if not download a kdeplasma-addons tarball from www.kde.org and compile it.
you don't need to compile all kdeplasma-addons, though. just run "cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`" in the base directory, then go into containments/groupingdesktop and do make && make install

OK, installing the official kdeplasma-addons doesn't present me with a Grouping Desktop option in Desktop Settings. Should I download the tarball from the KDE site and compile it myself? I really want this feature.

strange, did you try to log out?
if yes then i'd suggest you to file a bug in your distro's tracker, and meanwhile you can compile it manually.

Righto, managed to compile it fine, logged out and back in. I can now change to a Grouping Desktop, woohoo!, but it seems the only grouping option I can actually drag onto the desktop is "flow", the other grouping options--"tab", "stack" and others--don't want to be placed on the desktop.

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
