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!

o fix: transparency on nontransparent kicker
o fix: 'on mouse hover and click' works again
o new: semitransparent buttons

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

 Feature Request/?

 by SynTruth on: Sep 24 2004

Best version yet. I like the "window bgcolor for text" option.

I have a feature request/question:

I've always wanted a taskbar that would use all space for a button, and only make the buttons smaller when there was more than one task. Something kind of like Afterstep's task bar.

Does that make sense at all, and if so, is that even possible using QButtons? I thought about trying it (many moons ago) using clickable QLabels, but never got very far. (My knowledge of QT/KDE libs using C++ is very limited...)

Yes, it is possible - principally.

You only need to use a QLayout class and set some stretch factors for the widgets to layout. The taskbar however lays out its buttons without using a layout - the positions of the buttons are statically fixed. Without changing the taskbar too much I am not able to implement your wish. (I mean: Just imagine we would use a QLayout - I could make smooth fading animations where a button is moving from outwards and growing in size).

The missing layout was the reason for the transparency bug. Things like setBackgroundOrigin(AncestorsOrigin), setBackgroundModE(x11ParentRelative) and even mapToParent did not work at all. I had to copy the background of the parent widgets manually.
One example that Qt is still far away from perfect.

Best regards

 Problem with preview

 by vdboor on: Sep 24 2004

I really like this taskbar! I hope the preview function will be merged to the standard KDE CVS soon! :-)

I did notice a small problem with the preview screenshots, they often contain an preview window as well. Off course these problems could become history after XComposite is a defacto standard, but could you solve this screenshot problem?

I noticed how the new tabs slowly fade-in, and this is really cool!! Probably the best feature of your app. Could you also make it fade-out, or fade if you switch to another window? (but I'm not sure everone likes constant fading, but I certainly do, perhaps it needs to be make optional from a control panel)

Thanks in advice!

it's not possible with the underlying taskbar classes. When switching desktops from A to B that items of A will be hidden, the others will be shown. A fade-out would invoke an overfull taskbar during desktop switching - just imagine you would already switch to desktop C before the fade-out animation is finished! You would have a flicker for all 3 desktops in your taskbar, including continuous relayouting.

 Drag n Drop

 by Yaba on: Sep 24 2004

Another problem is that your taskbar does not support Drag n Drop. You know, when I want to dnd a file form one konqueror windows to a different window, which is hidden, the classic taskbar allows to drag the file to the taskbar, which then brings this window to the front and then you can drop the file in this window.

This does not work with your taskbar.

But anyway... this problem won't hinder me from using your taskbar. It may just be something that needs to be implemented, if your taskbar will be included in KDE.

To mess up a Linux box, you need to work at it; to mess up your Windows box, you just need to work on it.

I need to check that issue. Originally I just inherit the old taskbar classes. Why don't I inherit the dragndrop thing? Ok. Right now I compile against kde3.2 (but Ii belioeved they alrady had that).

??? ...many question signs... ???

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.
