Icon execute feedback


KDE Improvement

Icon execute feedback

Link:  http://
Minimum required   KDE 3.5.x
Downloads:  2433
Submitted:  Feb 9 2007
Updated:  Mar 6 2007


At first: Look at the screenshots.

Now the description:
This replaces the zooming rectangle that is drawn if you activate an icon in konqueror for execution feedback. It removes the rectangle and instead zooms the icon bigger and fades it out while doing. It's like MacOS X execution feedback.

Currently works in Konqueror, Kicker and all file dialogs. You will need a machine > 600 MHz for this though, else the animation may be slow.

This is a patch against kdebase-3.5.6 and kdelibs-3.5.6! So you have to recompile the two packages. Please only do that if you are experienced enough with recompiling KDE.

Apply the patches as follows:
1. Get kdebase-3.5.6
2. Get kdelibs-3.5.6
3. Get this patch
4. Unpack all archives
5. Change to the dir you unpacked kdelibs
6. Execute "cat /location/of/the/patch/kdelibs-3.5.6-execute_feedback.patch | patch -p1"
7. Recompile kdelibs
8. Install kdelibs (necessary as some header files changed)
9. Change to the dir you unpacked kdebase
7. Execute "cat /location/of/the/patch/kdebase-3.5.6-execute_feedback.patch | patch -p1"
8. Recompile kdebase
9. Install kdebase
10. Logout of kde and then login again.
11. Watch the icons zooming

Have fun. If you don't understand the step by step manual above
please inform yourself about how to recompile KDE on kde.org

If you find any bugs, feel free to leave a comment.


V0.1: No public distribution
- Made it work with Konqueror in list and icon mode

V0.2: First public release
- Now flickerfree in Konqueror (all views)
- Fixed some offsets in Konqueror treeview mode
- Integrated kicker with it. This is a bit hackish, please test and report errors.

V0.3: Minor bugfix release
- Fixed animation on Desktop leaving garbage.

V0.4: Minimal Bugfix
- Slowed down the animation a bit

- Kicker and some other animations do not work with Composite manager enabled (KDE's Transparent Windows, xcompmgr or Beryl/Compiz)

 kcontrol module

 by felmur on: Mar 10 2007

I've done a simple KControl module that enable/disable the effect. It simply changes the value of VisualActive value into kdeglobals file and then reload the configurations for kdesktop and kicker.

If you haven't nothing better this, I can post it here in kde-apps.

Cool thing...

If you wouldn't mind I would include it into the patch. So all is together where it belongs :)

 Lacking 3D

Hi there,

It seems that Kubuntu Feisty Fawn (current beta) has implemented this KDE improvement!

I looks REALLY nice! - Great!

One thing though! - Could it be coded in a way that disabled the effect if no 3D acceleration on the computer?

I'm a beta-tester, and the 3D acceleration doesn't always work ;) - And it's not funny to have to wait 2-3 seconds everytime I click on a folder! :) (The folder doesn't load before the animation is done...)

Just open kcontrol then go to Devices->Mouse->Optical Feedback and untick the checkbox

... i´ve google´d a bit, and i found that compiling and installing kdelibs/kdebase isn´t very easy... to those who have already done it -- is it "possible"? ^^

rfzt... tried it... ^^
downloaded sources via svn, is that normal?

/home/sven/kdebase/libkonq/konq_iconviewwidget.cc: In member function ‘virtual void KonqIActivate(QIconViewItem*)’:
/home/sven/kdebase/libkonq/konq_iconviewwidget.cc:1851: error: no matching function for cvisualActivate(QWidget*, QRect&, QPixmap*)’

Error creating ./libkonq/konq_iconviewwidget.lo. Exit status 1.
make: *** [all] Fehler 1

Why did you use svn?

and scroll down.

And yes, it's possible, I maintain part of the KDEmod community project (64Bit Version is my work) of Archlinux and had no problems so far

I didn't use the svn version and I still get the same error message. Kdelibs was patched, compiled and installed correctly. Why do I get this error when compiling kdebase?

It says "cvisualActivate" in the error message, that should have been "visualActivate".

That's weird... I'll check the patch today evening if I'm home again.

 KDE 3.5.7 support?

 by Consequence9 on: Jul 13 2007
Score 50%

Hi, I was just wondering if there will be an update soon that allows it to work with KDE 3.5.7 . I love this feature, but my system is already running 3.5.7 . I tried altering all instances of 3.5.6 in the code to 3.5.7, but that doesn't seem to be working (no surprise there, but worth a shot). Thanks a bunch :)

It's just me or it *first* load and displays the animation, and *then* executes the program?
Even if i click on "show desktop", i've to wait for the animation to end to see my desktop.

I'd love this tool if it helps the perception of speed, but that way it actually does the opposite!
Wouldn't be possible to execute the action as soon as the user click and in the meantime show the animation?

Maybe am i missing something?

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.
