Komposé provides a fullscreen view of all your tasks and/or virtual desktops where every window is represented by a scaled screenshot of it's own.

0.5 now features support for the Composite and Damage extensions (disabled by default, enable it in the preferences), however with the current state of graphics drivers XOrg may be awfully slow (or even crash sometimes) when enabling the Composite extension.
So blame me for your bad gfx drivers :)


- well, 0.5.2 didn't show plain and tiled backgrounds right... here we go
- updated author's email addy

- Nicer layouting (less grid-like)
- ADD: Icons for different views (thanks to Bill Kendrick)
- FIX: no more debug out if compiled normally (qDebug() to kdDebug())
- some code cleanups
- Remove flicker on desktop widget mouseover
- Added the ability to show the currently activated Desktop number on the systray icon (thanks to Debajyoti Bera)
- get rid of KRootPixmap
- Autoactivate when mouse moves on to the screen edge

-Hot corners delay controls whether Kompos�is started and not when it's started :)
-imlib2 error message added to configure script
-Fixed "if a kompose window (prefs, about) is open, you are stuck"
-Added german translation (thanks to Thomas Fischer)

-Composite support to take screenshots without raising windows
-Damage support for live-updates of windows
-major refactoring for a cleaner design
-new View Type (current desktop)
-activate when mouse moves in one of the screen's corners
-added popup menu for windows
-added a small screenshot delay for passive screenshots. This should make switching between tasks seem more responsive (redraws occur before taking screenshots) and help on most of the "overlapping windows" problems
-fixed flashing background when activating Kompos�
-Switched to themable KDE cursors
-Window title changes are now updated properly
-Correct handling of windows that are on all desktops
-additionally using hjkl(vi) keys for moving and c/m keys for close/minimize/restore
-Imlib2, Composite and Damage autodetected through configure
-some minor bugs and various smaller performance improvements

works really well here: kubuntu 5.04, GeForce FX 5700 Go with NVidia 7174 drivers, x.org, GLX, composite, transparency and shadows enabled in KDE 3.4.0

btw: nice background! where did you get that one from?

Thanks a lot for such a handy tool - I got rid of pager promptly ;)

Just one minor niggle - it seems that the perceived physical placement of screens isn't the same as in latest kde (I've got 0.5.1 so you may have fixed it..)

Example: I'm on screen 1, if i go right, I expect to go to screen 2 (as in kde 3.2+) instead it takes me to screen 3... no big deal tho, if it's up to you to fix at all ;)

And BTW - double thanks for the link to backgrounds :)

first of all, I set my shortcuts OS-X like... F9, F10, F11(view desktop)

I'd like to ...


1. press F11
2. select an icon on my desktop.
3. press F9
4. drag the icon still under my mouse cursor to a new application under kompose.
5. wait few seconds or press F9 again to exit from kompose
6. application under mouse cursor got focused.
7. I drop my icon whereever I want on this app ;)


same, URL from firefox, URL from konqueror, etc.

 XComposite works bad

 by bushwakko on: Sep 7 2005

Seems like Xcomposite really doesn't "use" the compositing manager like Expose in OsX does. Seems like it just uses composite to take a screenshot from composite, instead of using a scaled version of straigt from the composite.... that would seem to be a more correct way? Also if one implemented composite correctly one would get cool stuff for free like live video, transparancy and shadows (?), and even at no or little performance loss?

Well, "using a scaled version of straigt from the composite" doesn't make sense. Composite only gives access to the backing pixmaps of windows "as they are". So the problem is that we still need to scale the pixmap, which can not be done as fast as we would need it for videos, etc. What we would need here is hardware accelerated XRender (which is the X thing for doing 2D transformations with pixmaps). This is definately about to come some time soon. I'm very unhappy with how Komposé performs currently, but I also have high hopes for the next XOrg release and if it all works out we may soon have the same cool stuff available on X as MacOS has on Quartz. A man can dream, can't he?

 Show desktop

Mac OS X allows "show desktop" to be binded on some corner and expose on another corner. "Show desktop" would be great option especially with superkaramba.

 Behaviour problem

 by arN34 on: Jan 6 2006

Hi !

I've installed kompose 0.5.3 on a Mandriva 2006 and I can't manage to have a right behaviour.

Here are my problems :
- when kompose is up, I can't exit with Esc. It just don't do anything
- Windows + Tab shortcut doesn't work. More, when I try to set it manually to Windows + [another key] it doesn't want to take more than the Windows key in the shortcut panel (other combinations such as Alt + Tab work fine)

I guess this is not only a kompose problem but rather a KDE config problem, but I can't find what.

My config :
- Mandriva 2006 PowerPack
- KDE 3.4.2
- kompose 0.5.3
- imlib2-1.2.1

Could anyone help me configure kompose ?


a suggestion : wouldn't it be nice to exit kompose by clicking on a dektop area in kompose rather than by Esc ?

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.
