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

Upgraded to kde 3.3 and tried this out - looks great!

One thing - as there doesn't appear to be a configuration panel is there any document on configuration. I have found ~/.kde/share/config/libmtaskbarrc but am not sure what the valid settings are?

I'm rather new to linux, so I'm sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but how exactly do I make this work? I did the configure, make, make install, and it all seemed to work fine, but what do I do after that?

Right click on the taskbar - try on the '3 vertical dots'. Move to 'Panel Menu'/Add/Applet/Taskbar v2. You might want to remove the old taskbar :-)

i know its newbie of me to ask, but how exactly do you use the exclude list. Can someone give me an example. I want to exclude kaffeine, but I don't exactly know how to do it. When i have thumbnails on taskbar enabled, my video lags and skips. thanks.

for everyone that still hasn't figured out the exclued list, i finally figured it out after some research. here is what i used for kaffeine. example: kaffeine,kaffeine_mainview...Now taskbar doesn't grab video screenshots and my video plays normal again. For others just run the application from console. Then in console run xprop. The cursor should then change to this shape +. Now click on application that you would like to exclude. In console look for WM_CLASS and WM_WINDOW_ROLE. I don't know if it's the same for every video app, but hope this helps some of you.

Exactly what I was looking for!!!
and a question :-) How do I remove those "vertical dots" (a kind of separation) between two applets in Kicker... I'd like to make it transparent but those dots suck!!
Thank you

I don't know if this is what you are looking for, but here it goes.

1. Right Click on taskbar
2. Click on Configure Panel
3. Then click on Appearance Tab
4. Then at bottom you see a button that says advanced options, click on it
5. Then under applet handles make sure hide is filled in by clicking on it.
6. Click Ok then that should be it.

Hopefully thats what you were looking for.

 windowlist button

 by temp001 on: Aug 28 2005

the flat look rocks and makes the taskbuttons' labels easier to read. thanks for this. but that minimalistic window-list button is too small. would you implement the option to have the same windowlist button as in the original taskbar?

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.
