ActiveWindow Control

Description:

ActiveWindow Control (0.1)

This KDE4 plasmoid lets you control the active window. Actions currently available : Close, Minimize, Maximize, Shade/Unshade, KeepAbove, KeepBelow. It was created at first to help users with KDE4 on small devices (it's easier to click on a big button...) but it is actually great even with a standart computer (just throw your cursor at the corner of the screen to close your window, buttons are always located in the same place on the screen, etc.). Give it a try !


This is a pre-release but I publish it now because I don't have a lot of time these days and I want some help/feedback from you. At the moment, the plasmoid works great in panel except some minor things so please take a look at the TODO file if you have some time and don't forget to comment :)

Current limitations :
- plasmoid in planar formfactor (on the desktop) is buggy. Use it in a panel for now.
- The buttons don't reflect the state of the active windows : the KeepAbove/KeepBelow/Shade...
buttons should be "pushed down" when the current window has the KeepAbove/KeepBelow state,
some buttons needs to looks like disabled when an action is not available for a window, etc.


Note:
- The attached .deb is a Kubuntu Hardy checkinstall and it installs in /usr/lib/kde4, don't know if it will works for everyone
- you can force this plasmoid to align to the right in a panel by using the PanelSpacer plasmoid




Changelog:

- 0.1 : first release (beta)

sorry, not yet. I have a semi-functional version which works with the new task dataengine but it still needs some work... and my new job has completely took my free time

Please be patient, I'll update it to SVN playground once the code is cleaned up :)

 Add widgets can't find this...

Not sure why, but when I try and install from "Add Widgets" -> "Download new plasma widgets", no search brings this up.

I'm on Kubuntu Lucid with KDE 4.4.

hi,
that's because this isn't a scripted plasmoid but a binary one. Maybe Ubuntu packages it but not sure (it's in kde playground and not really finished).

Maybe AWC has found a new father with more free time and love than me, or a similar applet will be created,

I patched it so it compiles on my 11.10, it should work on 12.04 too.

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.
