Description:

KSmoothDock is a cool desktop panel (like KDE's kicker) for KDE 3.2 and above with smooth zooming (2 modes: normal and parabolic). Its aim is to provide a cool alternative/complement to kicker. As it is intended for KDE/Linux, its behaviour will be like that of kicker.
- Programming language: C++
- Libraries used: KDE 3.2 (or above)

Hope it will be useful for you!

---------------------------------------
NOTE***:

It seems that automake-1.9 is not backward compatible with automake-1.7, so please upgrade to automake-1.9 before you compile KSmoothDock. To check the version of automake on your system, run:
automake --version

TO INSTALL: Unzip, cd to the directory ksmoothdock then run:
./configure
make
su
make install

Then run:
ksmoothdock

(if when you run "ksmoothdock", nothing happens, then it is likely that your KDE dir is not standard. In this case, either:
- cd to the directory ksmoothdock/src, then run "./ksmoothdock", or
- Re-do the above sequence (./configure ...), but instead of "./configure", type:
./configure --prefix=/YOUR_KDE_DIR
)

IF YOU BUILD ANY BINARY PACKAGE: please send it to me, thanks.

BUG REPORT & FEATURE REQUEST & PATCH & TRANSLATION GUIDE (INTERNATIONALISATION): Please visit KSmoothDock's homepage:
http://ksmoothdock.sourceforge.net/

SCREENSHOTS: normal zoom mode and parabolic zoom mode (#1), config dialog (#2), quick launchers editor (#3)

Short FAQ:
----------
1. System tray? I will implement this feature very soon.

2. Drag-and-drop? I will implement this very soon.

3. Real transparency? I will implement this when the technology (XGl or any other) becomes more mature, stable and widely used. At the moment, it is not so yet.

Bug fix:

Some minor optimisations

Fixed the following bug:
- Option "Show windows from all desktops": "off" does not function properly

New feature:
- Add a separator between the launchers and the taskbar when the pager is not shown.

Fixed the following bugs:
- Normal zoom mode, LEFT or RIGHT position : the dock does not highlight the launcher on click acknowledgement.

- Parabolic zoom mode, LEFT position: drawing bug.
- Parabolic zoom mode: mouse click still works outside the visible area of the dock.
- About dialog: some text corrected.

v4.0: Redesign and rewrite the program from scratch. Thus it should now run better overall and is easier to maintain (fix bugs, implement new features...) than previous versions.

- POSITION SETTING: now the dock can be set to one of four positions on the screen: TOP, BOTTOM, LEFT, RIGHT.
- Switch zoom mode now does not require restarting the dock.
- Left click on the clock now shows the calendar.

Bug fix:
- The pager now displays mini-wallpapers correctly when the dock starts.
- Fixed other minor bugs.

Sorry, at the moment KSmoothDock can be placed only at the bottom of the screen. You can place kicker at the top, by the way :)

Thanks for this new release.

BTW: Ugly fast ebuild for gentoo (the previous did not work for me, so I made this ugly hack):

Note that this has not been tested with arts and might completely fail to compile in your system.

I compiled it fine and seems to run fine, but I have a problem, nothing appears on the screen, in the console the only out is this:

┌─(jue ene 12, 21:04:49)-(i92guboj@localhost)-(~/.fvwm)-·
└─[11]-> $ ksmoothdock
libpng error: Not a PNG file
wallpaper loaded
wallpaper loaded

Any idea? Im using 3x2 desktops layout, if that matters. No compositte nor any other fancy stuff.

 COmpiled manually

Compiled again manually and no difference. Thou I had to link /usr/kde/3.5/bin/ksmoothdock to /usr/bin/ksmoothdock, because otherwise I get:

┌─(jue ene 12, 21:11:39)-(i92guboj@localhost)-(~/.fvwm)-·
└─[16]-> $ ksmoothdock
-l: /usr/bin/ksmoothdock: No existe el fichero o el directorio

Maybe it is looking for something into a wrong place?

 Great Stuff

This is pretty cool ... I haven't given this a try for a while now and I really like the way this project is progressing.

I do have a question though, is there a systray available or in the works?

Keep up the good job!

The systray is not yet available. We will strive to make it in later on.

Thanks,

 No way

I tried 3.6.1 today, removed all the old crap from ~/.ksmoothdock and ./kde/share/apps/ksmoothdock. But the creature does not appears on the screen. It compiles fine and runs fine, but I cant see anything, nor even the config dialog that should pop up (I removed all the config files).

The console as usuall says only:

└─[17]-> $ ksmoothdock
libpng error: Not a PNG file
libpng error: Not a PNG file
wallpaper loaded

But nothing more. I compiled it against 3.5 and using --without-arts.Hasn't anyone experienced a similar thing? Since there are no aparent errors I dont have any clue where to start looking. It just seems to work ok, but nothing appears.

In KSmoothDock 3.6.x there is an "autohide" option. It may not be perfect though, as at the moment the transparency is still "fake". When xorg with composite is mature I will implement KSmoothDock using it.
Thanks,
Viet Dung

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
