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.

Fixed the following bugs:

However, if anybody knows how to get the wallpapers from all desktops from the beginning please let me know.
Thanks,

Speaking of wallpaper...if you have a slideshow as your wallpaper and the dock is set to hide, then after the wallpaper changes, the dock will pop up with the first wallpaper in the series behind it. Also if it pops up in front of a maximized application, it will have the wallpaper behind it...after the application is minimized, the dock will pop up with part of the old window behind it. This is not very smooth, but other than that, very impressive!

 Drag and Drop

Great app. kooldock appears to be dead, kxdocker is as complicated to use as emacs, you are the last great hope.

Any chance of implementing dragging and dropping icons from the kmenu to the launcher to configure a quick launch item and removing items from quick launch with a right mouse click?

Thanks for the great improvement to KDE. I have added firefox to the quick launch menu which works fine except for everytime i open firefox it goes directly to www.arizona.edu. Now since i have never been to that website and my homepage is set to www.google.com. I cant understand this at all.
Any ideas and to whats up with this. certainly has me stumped.

Thanks

Hi,

Did you download the official source code?

And what is your command for Firefox? If it has no argument (because the command with argument "firefox " will go to that URL) then it should go to your default homepage (the effect is just like typing the firefox command from a terminal).

Best,
Viet Dung

I pulled the link in from the desktop which came directly from the KDE menu > Internet > Firefox Web Browser.
When i type "firefox" in the terminal it comes up with my homepage of google.com. The only time it comes up with www.arizona.edu is when i click on firefox from ksmoothdock. So the command in ksmoothdock is "firefox %u" and when i type this into a browser it brings up arizona.edu. So i removed the "%u" and it works fine now.

Very strange error.

Is there a RPM of the version 3.6.1 for Mandriva ?

I really cannot use it live without the autohide feature, and I prefer not installing from source...

Thanks in advance !

There is no RPM sorry. Maybe you can "google" it. If someone has any binary package for KSD, please let me know. Thanks

KSmoothDock comes up fine, when I log out and log back in, the 'ksmoothdock' process is running, but it's not visible any more? I have to kill it and restart it to show up again, and then the same story when I log out and log in. I'm using version 3.6, KDE 3.5.1-1.5, Fedora 4. Noticed in your changelog for 3.6 entry for 'display bug for KDE 3.5', could this be related?

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.
