Icon Tasks

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  21188
Submitted:  Aug 29 2011
Updated:  Nov 10 2011


Modified version of KDE 4.7 taskbar applet and taskmanager library.


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


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

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.

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:

 Compilation Issue

Did anyone solve (or know how to solve) the compilation problem?

Compile failed on me because of multiple "using XXX;" lines referencing classes that were removed in the API change. Removing these lines the compiler errs of fixed the compilation. Removing the lines is safe as the removed APIs are not actually used, just referenced.

The plasmoid needs an internal source code update. A software adaptor (e.g. class(es)) may work as well. The developer obviously does not maintain this project any more.

 Stretch panel

 by DiscipleOfDante on: Aug 26 2013
Score 63%

Hello I am trying to use this excellent plasmoid to make an improvised dock, and it is working pretty well, but I do have one complaint. When too many icons are shown, instead of stretching the panel, it shrinks the icons. Is there a way to tell icon-tasks to stretch the panel if possible, instead of shrinking the icons? And if not, could such a feature be added?

 Missing option ?

 by denebe on: Nov 17 2013
Score 50%


I use a taskbar in a vertical position. I have a little problem.

I would like to put the "miniature box" in the down side left and the "icon tasks" up side left.

I can, but in this situation all the starter application are up with (or nearby) the "miniature box". There is no gap between these two different things.

It would be nice to have the possibility to let, in the icon tasks, all the starter application down (and not up as it is).

Best regards,

sorry, I would say the opposite:

"miniature box" in the UP side left and the "icon tasks" DOWN side left. With Kickoff in the left down corner...

In this situation there no gap between the "miniature box", which is up, and the launchers applications, that are up in the "icon tasks".

It is not very easy to describe.

sorry for my awfully englisch...

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.
