Description:

Modified version of KDE 4.7 taskbar applet and taskmanager library.

Modifications:

1. Show only icons (no text) in taskbar.
2. When a launcher is activated, place the task\'s taskbar entry at the same location as the launcher.
3. Tasks with no associated launcher, are placed after launcher tasks (unless alphabetically sorted).
4. Always group tasks.
5. Only allow launchers for items with .desktop files
6. Add a dialog to manually set the association from a window to a .desktop file - so that launcher can be created.
7. Add option to activate/iconify whole group when left button is pressed (taken from SmoothTasks). If disabled, then present windows is used for the group.
8. Use oxygen \'+\' icon to indicate a collpased group.
9. Use middle button to launch new instance of a task.
10. Attempt to place start-up spinner over launcher/task.
11. Add option to always use the launcher icon for taskbar entry - even when app is active. This works-around the issue where some applications (e.g. LibreOffice) have a different launcher/menu icon than the actual app uses.
12. Workaround an issue with a tasks attention state.
13. More tasks shown in tooltips.
14. Close tasks via tooltips.
15. Show right-click menu for task in tooltips.
16. Option to show job progress over task icon.
17. DockManager API support
18. Media player buttons in tooltips
19. Unity API




Changelog:

0.9.2
=====
1. Allow DockManager "icon-file" to refer to an icon name.
2. Add DockManager API extension (capability "x-kde-dock-item-overlay", dock item property "x-kde-overlay") to allow plugins to specify an overlay icon to be placed top-left of icon.
3. Dont attempt to get commandline for pid 0 - seems to crash KSysGuard library.
4. Use plasma themed close icon for tooltips.
5. Clear any exising entries before showing recent documents menu.
6. When reloading xbel/office recent documents, only clear old documents of that type.
7. When an action is marked as a separator, add a separator to the menu - just adding the action leads to an entry that looks like a menu title.
8. Read LibreOffice 3.4 recent documents from recently-used.xbel
9. Fix DockManager::GetItemsByPid

0.9.1
=====
1. When changing tooltip from one item to the next, call the toolTipHidden slot - so that the item can unregister from the tooltip signals.
2. Fix compilation with KDE less than 4.7
3. Fix dockmanager plugin sub-menus.
4. If compiled against KDE 4.8, dont need IconTask specific taskmanager.

0.9.0
=====
1. Use KSysGuard libraries to read process information.
2. Only ever show the separator if we actually have some launchers.
3. Rename taskmanagerrc to taskmanagerrulesrc
4. Middle click on tooltip is same as middle click on task.
5. Add middle click option - "Move To Current Desktop"
6. When manually moving launchers/tasks, move immediately rather than showing the drop indicator. The previous behaviour may be re-enabled by passing -DICON_TASKS_SHOW_DROP_INDICATOR_FOR_MOVE=true to cmake.
7. If there are too many windows for tooltip, display "Plus X more..."
8. Better calculation of rws and columns in tooltip.
9. Fix not being able to interact with first launcher/entry whilst a task is starting.
10. Fix totally broken dockmanager config UI.
11. Dont check if filename changes dock dockmanager, always update if an icon name is set.
12. Only store 1 container of launchers - not map for launchers, and list for sort order.
13. Fix detection of kcmodule launchers.
14. Try not to use exec() to open config dialogs, so as to not freeze plasma!
15. Remove usage of custom properties in QActions for menus.
16. Use standard KOpenWithDialog to select applications. Allows creation of non-desktop based launchers.
17. Save launcher lock state in applet, not taskmanager library.
18. All changes to taskmanager library are now in KDE/master. Because of this there is no 'basic' menu setting, as the menus have been re-arranged. The only difference between IconTasks's taskmanager and KDE (as of 4.8) taskmanager is the name of the Advanced sub menu. In KDE/master this is now know as "More Actions"
19. Don't set DESKTOP_SESSION to ubuntu, UnityFox has been updated an version 0.2.2 no longer requires this. For an updated UnityFox see:

 Notification for second copy of app

 
 by nirnroot on: Oct 15 2011
 
Score 50%

Probaly it is not Icon tasks bug, but it very nasty. If app is runing, and i run second/third copy, there is no indication on panel when second copy actyaly openned ( do not mean the appearance of the symbol + on group ). In Windows(r) and normal kde panel runned but non-openned app copy got focus or decorate by blue border, for example. Can it be added to icon tasks?

The behaviour *is* the same as the current taskbar. If the app demands attention, it will get a blue border/indicator.

I've just tried with the standard taskbar, started a second konsole instance and no blue border was drawn.

Maybe it's time to change project name? It's more like a dock.

Using the firefox addon? Please try this https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/unityfox/versions/?page=1#version-0.1.7

(just in case it isn't clear from the link, you want 0.1.7)

Its possible that the Unity API has changed - I have not updated to 11.10. Or, it is possible that the .desktop filename of firefox is different. (Unity matches apps to taskbar items based upon the .desktop filename). To find out which .desktop files IconTasks has associated with your tasks, do the following:

1. Enable DockManager support, if not already enabled (this can be turned off afterwards)
2. In a konsole run:

for item in `qdbus org.kde.plasma-desktop | grep "/net/launchpad/DockManager/Item"` ; do
qdbus org.kde.plasma-desktop $item DesktopFile;
done

The UnityFox plugin will be looking for firefox.desktop or firefox-trunk.desktop. If one of these are present, then it could be that the API has changed. To see whats happening, you need to rebuild IconTasks with debug support.

1. mkdir build
2. cd build
3. cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` -DICON_ENABLE_DBUS_DBUG=true
4. make
5. sudo make install
6. stop firefox
7. kquitapp plasma-desktop
8. plasma-desktop
9. qdbus org.kde.plasma-desktop /IconTasks toggleDebug 8
10. start firefox
11. perform download, etc.

In the konsole window you should see debug such as:

void Unity::registerTask(AbstractTaskItem*) 0x8476310 "" "application://firefox.desktop"

...and

void UnityItem::update(QMap<QString, QVariant>, const QString&) 0x848c868 "" "application://firefox.desktop" QMap(("count", QVariant(uint, 2) ) ( "count-visible" , QVariant(bool, true) ) ( "progress" , QVariant(double, 0.75) ) ( "progress-visible" , QVariant(bool, true) ) )

Its this update line that I am interested in.

Yup, you need to update to the latest version - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/unityfox/versions/

However, this also check that the DESKTOP_SESSION env var is set to ubuntu before it will work - why I dont know. Supposedly its to stop it trying to load libunity on non-unity systems, but why this matters I really dont know...

So, for now you need to set "DESKTOP_SESSION=ubuntu" before starting firefox. IconTasks 0.8.0 will do this automatically if unity support is enabled.

I use that addon in 11.10 and everything is fine on my end. The examples for the python Unity API also work fine as well...

 Too difficult to install

 
 by Eruaran on: Oct 21 2011

Who is this plasmoid widget for? Because its not for the average person. It's not for my mum, its not for my buddy who is completely new to Linux, and its not for me either. Where exactly am I supposed to "mkdir build"? In the folder I extracted? Somewhere else? I have no idea...

Do you realize that 99% of average users will NEVER install this? They'll just give up in frustration and, like me, wonder why the developer hasn't made it so that it is easily installable at least through the "Install Widget From Local File" dialogue??

Or at least providing clear step by step instructions... at least...

No doubt I'll get flamed for this post but it needs to be said. The problem of developers doing this kind of thing existed back in 2005 when I first started using KDE and it still exists now... in 2011... Completely defeating the purpose of all the work KDE developers have done to provide an interface that is reasonably easy for users to use.

The bottom line: Its just too hard for the average person to install.

com'on, linux is about learning how your system works!

Don't throw away this opportunity, this is the specific difference between linux and other OS users, learn!

anyway, i'll try to explain how to install a plasmoid in a more verbose way than the kde-look.org wiki.

1) Download the plasmoid (in the "download" directory, for example)
2) extract the content of the archive you just downloaded. Use ark or the command "tar -xvf plasmoid.tar.gz". A directory called "plasma-icontasks-0.7.3" will be created.
3) open a terminal into the "plasma-icontasks-0.7.3" directory and then run "mkdir build". This will create the directory "build" inside "plasma-icontasks-0.7.3".
4) from the terminal, go into the "build" directory.
5) Type the following commands:
5.1) cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
5.2) make
5.3) sudo make install
6)run the command "kbuildsycoca4"

the new plasmoid should be in theplasmoid list!

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.
