KDE Improvement

This is a modified pager applet for kicker to make it work with
compiz. More generally, it is intended to work with window managers that use
the concept of "large desktops" instead of "multiple virtual desktops" as kwin
does exclusively.

Technically, it is a matter of respecting window managers standards as defined
by EWMH (http://standards.freedesktop.org/wm-spec/wm-spec-1.4.html), using the
facilities already provided by KDE.

The code is based on the minipager applet taken from kdebase-3.5.4.

To install the package, follow the generic instructions found in the INSTALL and README files.Once it is installed, use the kicker dialog to add a new applet, and the pager
will appear in the list.

The code should soon be hosted somewhere in the KDE svn, hopefully to be merged in one of the next releases.

Enjoy !

Thank you very much for the applet.
Could be possible to switch desktop with the wheel mouse? it works on the desktop, but not on the applet, would be great!

Thank you very much! That is an excellent thing! After run beryl i was lost without all my workplaces. And kicker-compiz is the solution.

Three small glitches so far:

1. Mouse wheel is really most needed feature.
2. That is impossible to use it on vertical panel with 8 workplaces. They are so small.. :-)
3. On horizontal panel it want not to switch into two-rows mode -- all 8 workplaces are drawn in top row.

Again: thank you very much! Please not drop you work.

 Lost Thumbnails

 by mutlu on: Oct 19 2006

Really great that you work on this!

The only problem I encountered so far is that somehow the thumbnails of the first viewport get lost whenever I switch to the fourth viewport. They reappear when switching to viewports one or two.
Thumbnails on the fourth viewport disappear when switching to the first and reappear when switching to the third or fourth. Thumbnails on the viewports two and three never get lost.

I am using the standard setup of four viewports by the way.

(Kubuntu Edgy, Xorg 7.1(Aiglx), KDE 3.5.5, Beryl+Emerald)

 Just one request

Thank you for your great work!
I really needed this...
Just one reqest: can you add the possibility to change the layout?
In fact, the desktops are always placed horizontally, and on a large panel (my panel height is 52 pixels), they occupy a large amount of space!
It would be great to set up, for example, 2 desktops per row (like default Kpager does), so with 4 desktops/viewports we can have 2 rows, and in each row 2 desktop (for example...)

Keep up the good work.

Yeah this is also the only major thing that currently bothers me. I would like to have my 4 desktops in a 2x2 layout.

Live long and prosper!

 Great work

Great work on this app. I'm using Kubuntu Edgy Xgl + Beryl and using the pager. It works nicely and I'm pretty satisfied and even more pleased with the potential that the kicker shows. Just need to fix the doubling up of the rows when there's alot of space

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.
