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:

 Features request!

can you add support to kmess with the unity api, to make possible change status from right-clicking?

and I think you could add some effect to the title on the tooltip preview, have you any idea for that?

Excellent job! :)

There is nothing IconTasks can do to add support for kmess. Either a dock-manager plugin (you could base it upon the pidgin one) needs to be written, or you can edit kmess's .desktop file to have unity quicklist menus.

As for animations on the tooltip, its on my TODO. But is not a very high priority - at the moment I'm tying to get my taskmanager changes merged back into KDE.

 Coloured highlight for running apps?

 
 by fannymites on: Nov 4 2011

Although we have indicators and coloured boxes as options, one more nice option would be to maybe choose coloured boxes for RUNNING apps only instead of indicators?
Sort of like Win 7?

Two functions should be possible be set by user.

1) Close task with middle mouse button
2) Close task with right mouse button

 Dockmanager in KDE?

 
 by acidrums4 on: Nov 6 2011

I don't understand too much the thing about dockmanager scripts. It's possible to use them in an only-KDE environment? I tried to install dockmanager, but it tries to install gtk, pygtk and glade...

Yes. For Kubuntu 11.10, you only need the python-dockmanager package installed. IconTasks should handle the rest.

Hi, I found a few bugs, I loss vlc media controls, what I did was tile windows dragging them to the side of the screen and now, no more media controls for vlc :'(, I was watching two videos....

so, any help with vlc??

But with media controls, I think you're using the same instance (Sorry, I'm a Java programmer, everything is an object for me xD) of controls, when I have dragon player and amarok, I stop amarok, and watching vídeos with dragon everything it's ok, but if I stop dragon (pause) and play again, both start, same thing happen when I push "next" or "back".


That's all, you're doing a great jobs with this tasks! :)

VLC ony has one dbus interface - org.mpris.vlc. This is shared between all instances - or rather, only the 1st will have the interface. So, you cannot control both.

The error was in the tooltip code, it was not calling the tooltipHidden function when the tooltip changed to the next item. So, all items recieved the play/pause presses.

to fix this, edit tooltips/tooltip.cpp and add the following to the start of "ToolTip::setContent"

QObject *source = d->source.data();
if (source && source!=tipper && source->metaObject()->indexOfMethod("toolTipHidden()") != -1) {
QMetaObject::invokeMethod(source, "toolTipHidden");
}

Will fix in 0.9.1 Thanks for reporting!

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.
