Depends on  KDE 3.5.x

Submitted:  Sep 19 2006

Description:

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 !

 Little Fix

 
 by Kahoko on: Nov 12 2008
 
Score 50%

Under KDE 3.5.9 in Debian Lenny I could not get this to compile via source. Kept getting this error.

pagerapplet.h: At global scope:
pagerapplet.h:43: error: 'namespace KWin { }' redeclared as different kind of symbol pagerapplet.h: 43: error: 'namespace KWin ()' redeclared as different kind of symbol
/opt/kde3/include/kwin.h:62: error: previous declaration of 'class KWin' /

Well here is the fix:

/ *
namespace KWin (
WindowInfo class;
)
*/

Just comment it out.

 Mouse wheel switches desktop

 
 by BryanFRitt on: Nov 14 2008

Mouse wheel switches desktop instead of virtual desktop.

The mouse wheel by default should switch virtual desktops instead of desktops, and after it goes to the last virtual desktop it should go to the first virtual desktop of the next desktop.(or back to the first desktop if it was at the last one)

This also could be configured so that mouse wheel switches desktop and left and right scroll switches virtual desktop, (or even to disable the mouse's effect on the pager)

I could try to play with the source code, but I get this error message when I try to compile it. (Same error as another poster)

sudo apt-get install cdbs debhelper kdelibs4-dev kdebase-dev libqt3-mt-dev libxcomposite-dev automake1.9

This got it working!

 Too many crashes ...

 
 by BryanFRitt on: Nov 15 2008
 
Score 50%

This crashes 1/2 the time desktops are switched. (yes, I said desktops not virtual desktops) When it crashes[the taskbar goes away]* on switching desktops it crashes practically every time. This app doesn't deal with switching to vertical virtual desktops, everything goes to the 1st row of the desktop. At least it does display the vertical virtual desktops as being there and I can click on them(it just goes to the 1st row).
-
And the KDE one doesn't understand vertical virtual desktops nor multiple desktops on Compiz.
-
*The command: "dcop kicker default restart" gets it back; usually temporarily, until next desktop change.

It doesn't crash anymore... I think I just didn't properly uninstall / reinstall it before, when I had played around with the source code.(thought I put it back the way it was, but maybe not)

 Desktops, Virtual Vert & Hor

 
 by BryanFRitt on: Nov 15 2008

Note: There are virtual* horizontal desktops, virtual* vertical desktops, and desktops/desktops rows, when using KDE and Compiz-Fusion. The pager has an option for 1,2,3, or auto rows to place the KDE desktops in. Each KDE desktop has virtual horizontal and virtual vertical desktops with in them. The virtual desktops are ordered left to right then top to bottom within a desktop which are also arranged left to right then top to bottom. AKA (trying to say it again) virtual left to right then top to bottom within a desktop then the desktops are left to right in a row and then top to bottom; same as the virtual desktops within a desktop except that the desktops doesn't have to arranged in a rectangle like the x*y virtual desktops within a desktop.

**sometimes called viewports.

example:

3 virtual horizontal, 3 virtual vertical, 8 desktops in 3 rows
--------------------------------------
|1__2__3_ |10_11_12 |19_20_21|
|4__5__6_ |13_14_15 |22_23_24|
|7__8__9_ |16_17_18 |25_26_27|
--------------------------------------
|28_29_30 |37_38_39 |46_47_48|
|31_32_33 |40_41_42 |49_50_51|
|34_35_36 |43_44_45 |52_53_54|
--------------------------------------
|55_56_57 |64_65_66|
|58_59_60 |67_68_69|
|61_62_63 |70_71_72|
------------------------

and this is how this Compiz-Pager numbers them.

<Idea: Maybe Compiz-Fusion could have an option to change this; like for cultures who don't read left to right, etc...>

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
