KDE Improvement

Score 77%

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!


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:
make install

Then run:

(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.


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.

New features:
- New command line options:
--resetConfig reset configuration data
--resetLaunchers reset quick launchers data

Bug fixes:
- Fixed some display bugs (on both normal and parabolic zoom modes) in v4.4.

- Parabolic zoom mode now works correctly under latest KDE releases.

New features:
- The "auto-hiding" feature has been re-implemented
- Added right-click popup menu for pager, taskbar (re-added) and clock
- Dock Position Conflict Dialog: added an option not to show it again

Other changes:
- The range of icon sizes have been increased
- Desktop icon area is now adjusted correctly
- Some other minor fixes.


New features:
- The Parabolic Zoom mode has been considerably improved.
- A task that demands attention now has better blinking notification.

Bug fix:
- The dock now does not steal mouse/keyboard focus when being zoomed in
- Fixed other minor bugs.

Other changes:
- The popup menu of a task button has been removed, because while it is of little use, it has problems with the parabolic zoom's animation.


New feature:
- Blink a task's icon when it demands attention

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.
- Normal zoom mode: a tiny part of the dock is not updated correctly.
- 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.

New features:
- 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.
- Add a "create a new link to folder" button in Edit Quick Launch Menu dialog.

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

 Vertical Mode

 by djklein on: Feb 13 2006
Score 50%

Hey - great App. I am wondering if there is some way to have the ksmoothdock appear vertically on the left side of my screen instead of horizontally along the bottom? I run dual displays so the dock is less in the way if it's over on the side.

Thank you very much.

Implementing position setting (top, bottom, left, right of the screen) means rewriting a lot of code, so it is likely I will implement it in version 4 (which will be released when KDE 4 is popular).

 add Quick Browser?

I love ksmoothdock! Thanks!
Is there a way to add 'Quick Browser', 'Recent Documents' or 'Bookmarks' as on the default kicker?
Could help to save space. I have way too many buttons for my small screen... :-)

 Memory Leak!

I compiled Ksmoothdock using Slackware distro qt and kde 3.5.1 packages and I discovered that after several hours the whole system used to work like a turtle (veery slow) - then in "top" i saw that almost 100% of my RAM and SWAP are in use and the fsoult lays on the Ksmoothdock side... I can`t tell you where is the bug, but try to check if there`s a memory leak...

Right click on the panel, then select configure panel. Find "hiding" or something similar. Then select hide automatically. This wont "get rid" of the panel but will hid it untill you touch one of the edges of the screen. Still better than nothing, no?

 Gentoo users FYI

People who use Gentoo Linux and want to install from this site and not portage need to modify the configure script in the downloaded file. To do this open it to your favorite text editor( e.g. 'vim configure' ) and find 'kde_default_bindirs' variable (about line 2088). Add you kde bin directory to this list. Mine was '/usr/kde/3.5/bin/'. Now you can run './configure' and it will find the kde-config and be able to configure correctly and should install.

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.
