Submitted:  Mar 24 2009
Updated:  Nov 6 2010

Description:

This is a fork of mbaszczewskis STasks plasmoid. For the original STasks code go there:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/STasks?content=99739

This taskbar replacement has window peeking similar to Windows 7 when you use the kwin 'highlight window' effect. Even if this effect is not used you can click the tooltip in order to activate the corresponding window.

About Launcher Support, Grouping and Sorting:
A feature often requested in the comments is support for launchers and a more comprehensive context menu. Because the information about which task items there are, their grouping, sorting and state (minimized, demands attention, is active, ...) and even their context menu is all provided by libtaskmanager, such feature requests should be directed to kdelibs. I wrote a wishlist entry in the kde bugtracker for these features: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=207902 If you want this feature vote for this wish.

Update:
Launcher support exists in KDE 4.6. I will incorporate this feature once KDE 4.6 is available in Fedora (and I have time).


Update 2:
I pulled all changes made by flupp and jimi312, which amongst other things add launcher support. You can download the most recent source directly from the mercurial repository:
https://bitbucket.org/panzi/smooth-tasks/get/tip.tar.bz2

However, because I experienced some bugs with the launcher support (sometimes they are shown when the associated app is running and sometimes they are not shown when the associated app is not running) I did not make a new release yet. If I can find the bugs in a few hours tomorrow (2nd Apr 2011) or flupp/jimi312 fix them I will make a new release. I don't know how much time I have to work on Smooth Tasks. :/

Update 3:
The mentioned bugs concerning launchers seem also to be present with KDE's original taskbar, so I think the bug lies in libtaskmanager and not in Smooth Tasks.

Bugreports and Wishes:
http://bitbucket.org/panzi/smooth-tasks/issues/

Packages:
Debian, Ubuntu and Fedora have official packages.

Fedora:
sudo yum install kde-plasma-smooth-tasks

And to get meaningful backtraces:
sudo debuginfo-install kde-plasma-smooth-tasks

Note: I didn't check the validity of any of these packages!

Poll: Which Layout should stay?
I have created a poll about which of the various layouts supported by Smooth Tasks should be kept and which I can drop:
http://twtpoll.com/dm5m96

Please participate in this poll so I know whether I have to bother with supporting all of the currently provided layouts. In case you do not use multiple rows please choose the first option. In this case most layouts should look the same anyway.




Changelog:

wip 2010-11-06:
FIX: drop whole groups onto pager (removed workaround for KDE < 4.5 which could not handle groups at all)
FIX: when dragging a task only a tiny bit it's position was not reset
Maybe FIX: a very rare tooltip positioning bug (I have o wait if it reoccurs)

wip 2010-11-05 update 1:
FIX: fixed unwanted highlight behaviour change which reintroduces flickering :(

wip 2010-11-05:
FIX: tooltip appearance and background blur under KDE 4.5 (someone once sent me a patch for this but I cant find this message any more so I figured it out myself by looking at KDE sources)
FIX: less flickering for the kwin highlight effect

wip 2010-02-27:
FIX: less flickering for the window preview effect because I removed the kwin highlight effect bug workaround (that bug was obviously fixed in kde 4.4)
FIX: crash when right-click on startup item, thanks to anonymous

wip 2010-02-13 update 2:
FIX: hopefully fixed bug concerning missing taskbar entries

 Cool!

Absolutely fantastic I love it, I just installed it using the deb package on Ubuntu :)

Only criticisms are tiny little imperfections such as hover lighting being slightly jerky when hovering over different icons quickly, or the manual sorting not being TOTALLY perfect, but for the most part it's really cool!

Oh, any chance of having it included in the normal plasma downloads for KDE 4? I couldn't see it in there but I have to admit I'm not sure how one gets included anyway! :)

Cheers guys,

Mike!

 Single click action

On single click action could Smooth Tasks open up the selection for the different windows of that program, as opposed to minimizing it if it's open? That would be cool :)

Double click could minimize? Or maybe just the option for this behaviour could be given in the Smooth Tasks settings or something :)

Could you rephrase that? I've no idea what you mean.

heh, sorry man :)

I meant like, in Windows 7 when you hover over a taskbar entry and single click, it brings up the available windows (like it does when you hover on Smooth Tasks). I guess it doesn't make a huge amount of difference, maybe I'm just used to the behaviour of Win 7 :)

Oh additionally, are there any plans to add pinning of programs like in 7?

This was the original behaviour of STasks. I think it is inconsistent, unintuitive and unhandy. When I have gimp open, it consists of at least 3 windows, all of them in one group. Now I want to minimize gimp as a whole and than raise it again. A simple click is enough. When I want the tooltip, I hover the task. That's how you get a tooltip.

Read and voted for ^_^

The KDE devs tend to be quite open to suggestions and hard-working, so I suspect we may see this soon! I'll also post about it on the Ubuntu Forums and maybe other places!

Ah ok. I do fully see your point, I actually thought it was a little silly in Windows 7 as well. Howeverrr... if it's not too much trouble I think it would be really nice to see an option for this, simply because you have to bear in mind many people are used to the behaviour of the normal superbar, and may want Smooth Tasks to react the same or predict that it will.. sorry to be a pest, I just think things like this may make it more accessible to ex-7 users! :)

What do you think?

 Color glow position

 
 by warnec on: Nov 25 2009
 
Score 50%

Would it be possible to bound the color glow source to the bottom of the task item?

Right now the source of the color glow

(place, where the center of the circle with the glow is)

is in the place where the moues pointer resides, and I'd like to see an option where the glow would be dependant on the mouse cursor position only on X axis, and it would be always locked in one place of Y axis (so that one always has impression of the glow shining from below the icon)

This doesn't seem to hard, does it? ;) I hope you consider my idea :)

This is how it originally was. Then everyone said this looks weird and so I changed it. I guess someone will always want it somehow different. :/

Why not make it configurable?

Your plasmoid is quite powerful in terms of customizability, so why not let people decide what they want?

You should have it. See here:

http://www.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=cmake

cmake-2.6.2-2.19.i586.html Cross-platform, open-source make system OpenSuSE 11.1 for i586 cmake-2.6.2-2.19.i586.rpm

cmake-2.6.2-2.19.x86_64.html Cross-platform, open-source make system OpenSuSE 11.1 for x86_64 cmake-2.6.2-2.19.x86_64.rpm

If opensuse 11.1 has it, 11.2 should have it as well.

See here:

See OpenSuSE 11.2 for x86_64 or i586, depends if your system if 32 or 64bit.

Click download, and that's all.

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.
