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

 controlling apps...

i dont know if you've take a look at the new dashboard for mac os X 10.4, but i was wondering if maybe kompose could allow to control apps on their thumbnail version.
like, completly acting with them, clicking on the menu and stuff.

if you have a kcalc running, and you click on kompose, you'll see its big enough for you to play with it.

would be cool if maybe the user would press CTRL and could click and on the application itself without quitting kompose.

maybe the application would zoom in, then you can interact with it. then when you release the key, it goes back to the normal kompose view.

also, when you look at the current expose in 10.3, windows are shrinking just enough to show them all. kompose actually does that too, in a single virtual desktop, unused virtual desktop are just blank square. thats not as good.

and xinerama.... really important.
more and more computer comes with dual video card.

great work there, i just replace any kind of taskmanager I had by yours.

I have already thought about the same thing. Bringing an app to front in kompos is definately on my todo list.
Desktop shrinking has also been finished some days ago.
Xinemera: I never used it. If someone sends me the code it'll be fine :)
elseways it's on my Todo list, but at the end of it (at least untill I got a second tft here myself ;).

basicaly, with two screens, kompose appear on the same screen as the kicker bar is, or where the systray applet is I guess.

and you can still use the other screen while expose is open.

windows are of course together (no screen distinction) and hmm,...

i dont know,... i think kdelibs have some more work to do on the xinerama side, to make your life easier.

and dont think kwin is aware at all of which screen a window is. part using his position (x-w >= 0)?

anyway.... when 0.4 due for ? :)

somekool: I think it would be hard to use the applet in kompose, it's only a screenshot(?)
I don't know if this works, but when I tried yo close all windows in kompose:
1. Kompose crashed when I got a popup message (Kopete is still running in system tray)
2. A empty kompose.
If there are no windows, then just quit kompose?

Oh, and: Thanks for a wonderful applet! (I was surprised that it didn't lag on my computer ^^)

 no systray icon

// creating new thread

about your idea to not have a systray icon, that is pretty good. allowing people to create their own button, or to just use the hotkey.

even if dcop calls are great and should be available, maybe the icon should just link to a script. That script would just check if the app is running, if so, it just use the dcop call, if not, it runs it first.

however the prefereences are set, with or without systray icon

so the hotkey would need to be a global KDE hotkey installed with kompose instead of a regular app hotkey

Sounds good. This will be the way I'll implement it in 0.4

 Uncover from xapps

 by psykotux on: Aug 8 2004
Score 50%


You can watch to "uncover" apps from xapps. It works like kompose. Light, Powerfull, Real time, work perfectly on 700Mhz ;-) But it only works with DAMAGE/COMPOSITE/XFIXES ;-(. You can use it with Xserver. Now "uncover" works to see in thnumbmail all apps and the apps together. Don't scale the thunbmail and mask the apps and you have your Kompos ;-)


But it's only a demo ;-)

 Xserver extensions

Score 50%

I don't knoww how, and I doubt this has been integrated, but running a server with the Damage Composite and Xfixes extensions and the xcompmgr seems to improve Kompose's performance ;) i wonder what would happen if it were explicitly meant to use those extensions (which are apparently going to be part of the next X.org release)...

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.
