Taskbar v2 (flat + thumbnails)

A beautiful taskbar for kicker.

o flat and transparent (if kicker is transparent)
o animated thumbnail views (animation equations correspond to kpager2)

You probably need to restart kicker after adding the taskbar.

based on taskbar of kde 3.2

FIX the file modification times first:
find . -print -exec touch {} \;

(make -f Makefile.cvs)
make install

If it doesn't work, you probably need to remove the autom4te directory. Moreover, using mtaskbar.kdevelop will help in any case.

Have fun!

no changes, just new packages from third-parties

o fix: transparency on nontransparent kicker
o fix: 'on mouse hover and click' works again
o new: semitransparent buttons
o new: application exclude list for screenshots (usage: "className,windowRole;className,windowRole [..]")

o fix: definitely flickerfree
o fix: textcolor, now guaranteed readibility
o new: thumbnail will hide itself after 5 seconds (tool tip behaviour)
o new: apply icon effects (eg. toGray)

o transparency works now!!
o less flicker
o better thumbnail animation on small resolutions
o improved shadow style
o some new options

o new: shadows around text vs. text color
o new: smooth effects when blending in buttons
o fix: thumbnail flicker reduction
o fix: button flickers at window moving

o cleaner animations, animation enabled/disabled like in KControl
o disable animation if popupp was opened
o configuration: show buttons/ show thumbnails

o animated thumbnail views

o make taskbar flat and transparent

 KDE 3.4?

I didn't spot any error upon compiling, but I see no difference... Same old kicker, same old taskbar... Does it not work with KDE 3.4 or do I need to do something to get the new taskbar showing?

With kicker's contextmenu throw out the taskbar applet and put in the taskbar2 applet.

 MPlayer troubles :(

 by Rechinu on: May 7 2005

I love this applet, 2 issues i have with it:
1. mplayer ...how do i add the video window to the exclude list?
... main window i've managed to exclude it, but i have no ideea what to add for the video content window there.
2. For some reason, if i change the
showThumbnails to false in
after a KDE restart the value is again set to true (i've changed my permission to read-only the file and it's ok now :))

I agree that it should be included by default in KDE :)

Yeah....I have the exact same thing....I thought it was my system just being slow, but then I tried a fresh install of mepis on a second hard disk and was suprised to find that DVD playback was fine. So then I went through each program I have trying to figure out which was making DVD playback skip.....and I found it....mtaskbar....but I love it and don't want to go back to the old taskbar....so what I want to do is put MPlayer in the "exclude" list....I've tried about 100 combinations right now and can't seem to get it....for the video window of mplayer (or the whole mplayer program...I don't care) what is the "className" and "windowRole" and what exactly should I type into the "exceptions" box??

Sorry if I repeat a request, but I can't
find it anywhere.

It would be great if the taskbar supported
composite -> screenshots without raising windows.

 Text not visible

 by Czak on: Jun 2 2005

Hi. I like the taskbar a lot, apart from one thing: when I hover over the active window button in the taskbar, its text becomes invisible (the text color becomes the same as the background). The background- and minimized-window buttons work fine.

Yeah i know I don't need to read the description for the active window as it is well...active and on top. But it doesn't look fine.

It doesn't matter what color scheme I ude in kde, and enable the transparency for kicker or not.

Is there a way to change it?

The link was dead for the debian package so I created another one.

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.
