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:
- The dock now does not steal mouse/keyboard focus when being zoomed in

v4.1:

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

v4.0.1:

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.

 Rename desktops

Is there a 'way' to rename the desktops to match what I've named them in control centre?

Sorry at the moment, KSD does not support this, pager icon is not a launcher and hence cannot be edited.

 System Tray

 
 by kevkim55 on: Aug 4 2006
 
Score 50%

I prefer ksmoothdock over kxdocker. ksmoothdock is easily configurable and behaves like kicker to a great extent. There's one thing it is missing though. It doesn't have a system tray. Ideally, I'd like to have just ksmoothdock loaded with, kicker hidden completely so, I can use ksmoothdock as the only bar. Problem comes where, I need to launch an application minimized to system tray, kmail for eg. For this, I'm forced to restore kicker and restore kmail. Wouldn't it be nicer if ksmoothdock included a system tray as well. This would eliminate the need to have kicker to have as a standby.

ksmoothdock still seems to have some glitches in display as, sometimes when you move the mouse away, parts of the zoomed icons or the desktop background remain displayed on the application that is running in the foreground.

Can we not have the option to stretch ksmothdock to the full screen length and keep the quick launcher to the left, clock and sys tray to the right with task bar in the middle, just like the kicker ?

And, an option to stack the desktop pager icons on one top of the other, like kicker ?

I would appreciate any response in this regard.

I know the author has said previously he's been unable to create the needed code for a systray to be included (no knock on the author at all). He's asked for suggestions but, to the best of my knowledge, none have been forthcoming.

I've also noticed the icon name remaining on occassion.
I'd like to make the clock a little more configurable (date/s, 24/12 hr time... day's... etc).

Still, a nice app.

Thanks for your support.

About your questions:
1. System tray: I will implement it as soon as I know how to do it technically. It s quite tricky.

2. I am always trying to make the zoom effect better. It is still far from the effect in other OSs now.

3. The length of the dock depends on the setting of dock item's size and the number of dock items so I'm not sure if I can do like you said. Whereas with kicker, the lenght of a task button is dynamic.

4. Can you explain this further?

Regards,
Viet Dung

I used
./configure --prefix=/usr/kde/3.5/ --without-arts
make
su
make install

Then, it crashed. GDB reports:

Tried also just ./configure --without-arts --prefix=/usr/ and with no prefix at all.

Tried also this:

./configure --prefix=/usr/ --host=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --datadir=/usr/share --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var/lib --with-x --enable-mitshm --without-xinerama --with-qt-dir=/usr/qt/3 --enable-mt --with-qt-libraries=/usr/qt/3/lib64 --disable-dependency-tracking --disable-debug --without-debug --without-arts --enable-libsuffix=64 --with-extra-includes=/usr/kde/3.5/include --with-extra-libs=/usr/kde/3.5/lib64 --libdir=/usr/lib64 --build=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

That is what my gentoo ebuild uses to compile kde-misc/ksmoothdock-3.6.1, which compiles and runs fine.

But 4.0 refuses to work, the same gdb backtrace.

Sorry the source package I uploaded several hours ago was corrupt.

I have just uploaded the proper one so the dock v4.0 should work now.

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.
