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

It'd be nice if Taskbar v2 would honor the 'Group similar tasks: Never' option.

Indeed! I never noticed that issue until KDE 3.5 - but now I find it very annoying. I just hate grouping.

The next time I restart KDE or kill/restart kicker the options I set before are gone, I have to set all options manually each time taskbar-v2 is added to the kicker panel...

Any idea for help?

 graying out

 by Cubalibre6 on: Feb 12 2006

I am using mtaskbar for a while now, and i think it is teriffic!

I have one question:
Is there any way to leave the text beside the icon black, when a window is minimized.

In my version (0.7), the text beside an icon is always grayed out when i minimize a window.

Perhaps it is possible to disable the graying out in the source code?

I tried it myself, but no success...

I've used this applet alot in the passed and just noticed that it is the cause of alot of jumpiness. WHen playing ut2004, for example, I get massive delays once in a while. Using hte normal taskbar, there is no such trouble. Is there any way to change the snapshot interval in the code, or else exclude certian apps from snapshots?

Using KDE 3.5 I can't disable grouping of items.

I blog, therefore I am.

I don't know if there is a new version, but KDE 3.5 does in fact "break" the original code for disabling grouping.
I really like this program, but hate taskbar grouping.. so I changed the source to disable it. Opensource FTW~

To fix the grouping issue the cheap way:
Download source
-> Open KDevelop
-> Open kdevelop project file in the main directory
-> Open taskbar.cpp
-> Find
bool TaskBar::shouldGroup() const

Make the function look like this:
bool TaskBar::shouldGroup() const
return false;
/*return currentGroupMode == GroupAlways ||
( currentGroupMode == GroupWhenFull &&
taskCount() > maximumButtonsWithoutShrinking() );*/

Save the file, and make / make install as usual. re-add taskbar v2 to the panel.

Works fine for me. Good luck.

It seems that the site hosting the file is down. Does anyone have this to host or is the project canned?

Would be a shame if it is canned....

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.
