Description:

UPDATED for KDE 4.6

This is a fork of the tasks applet you know from KDE extended by some extra features. Version 0.2 is the same tasks applet as you have in KDE 4.6.2 + the "icon only"-mode.

The inital additional feature to the common task applet is to hide the text labels of applications - just displaying the icons. Cudos for the feature itself goes to the plasma-devs. Since KDE 4.5 the taskbar will hide the text-label if there is "not enough room". I just added an option to force this behaviour. The plasma-devs have rejected this as a configuration option for the vanilla tasks applet.

REQUIREMENTS (tested, might be lower):
- You need a working GNU Compiler toolchain.
- Cmake
- KDE >= 4.4 Headers files (kde development packages)
- QT >= 4.6 Header files (QT development packages)


HOW TO INSTALL

In the main directory run
- cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
- make
- make install/strip (as root or: sudo make install/strip )


The applet is named "Flexible Task Manager" in the applet list.

 Fix request: group indicator

 
 by ademmer1977 on: Aug 27 2010
 
Score 50%

Hi,

the indicator for grouped tasks (number of tasks in group with little arrow point above) on the right sight of a task covers the task item and is really hard to read when in "ony icon" mode.

Could you implement that (if in icon mode) grouped tasks are not square but rectangular so that the group indicator is shown right beside the icon? This would be awesome! I had a look at the code myself but the "taskgroupitem.cpp" (where i suspect the indicator rendering code to be in) is quite longish. If you give me any hints, I try to come up with a patch.

Haven't understood all of the code yet. But the actual drawing code is in the abstractitem, so you have to look there.

 direction for development

 
 by KAnton on: Aug 27 2010
 
Score 63%

till now this applet is really "yet another tasks applet"
But I have an idea for how to let it stand out from the others as a taskbar with a diffrent target.
Why not target on creating a fullfeatured and easy to use tasks applet for small devices (about 10-15inch)?
What I think of is the following concept:

-The panel is on the top
-The titlebar is hidden for maximized windows
-The item of the active window is expanded, the others are collapsed
-The X for closing windows is shown on mouse-over in the expanded item
(of course everything is configurable)
Just a few ideas...

I think I could help on developing this.

You may have to restart plasma - or it is just called the same way as the normal tasks applet. It just has the version number 0.1 instead of 1.0.

 KDE SC 4.6 Beta 1

Can you please release an updated version for KDE SC 4.6 Beta 1 that supports activities? Your current release causes a Plasma crash. :(

Alternatively, you could just post your patchset and I'll patch the 4.6 sources myself.

Thanks! :)

I made a diff between your flexibletasks and the original tasks plasmoid from August. However, it took me some manual adjustments to port the patch to the current task plasmoid because it was partly rewritten due to activity and app launcher support.

It's not 100% there but about 90% (app laucher support is missing). If you are interested to take my efforts as base for your update, just contact me.

PS: It's already working on KDE SC 4.6 Beta 2, but no app launcher support yet.

Sorry for my negative comment but Smooth Tasks has the feature already. I suggest you work with its author to improve his tasks applet.

I've installed it, but it appears in the applet list as Fancy task applet like the 0.1 version, and it does non work exactly like 0.1
Have you updated the wrong version?

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.
