Minimum required   KDE 4.x

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

It is telling: "Could NOT find KDE4Workspace "

With the (K)ubuntu package: kdebase-workspace-dev

Glad to see that this project is still alive. At the moment, I see no real replacement for this.

 still crashing plasma-desktop

Using the launchpad ppa in the description and installing kde-plasma-smooth-tasks still causes the widget to crash when attempting to add it to the panel. This is in KDE 4.4. Is it just my set up? Is there a configuration file that perhaps needs deleting?

That is becasue smooth-tasks has to be compiled against KDE 4.4 (don't know why)

I installed a smooth-tasks package from this PPA https://launchpad.net/~g-christ/+archive/ppa and it works in Kubuntu 9.10 with the KDE 4.4 PPA

Hey that worked, thanks! (And there's even a newer version of rekonq in that PPA.)

it still crashes even when compiled against 4.4. A user on Mandriva forums reported that it worked fine with 20100212 but started to crash with 20100213.

Hi mikala,

I did the backport to 2010 and it is crashing for me and for another user on the forum:

http://forum.mandriva.com/viewtopic.php?p=780532#780532

Can you try on a 2010 box ?

If i understand the user is using kde 4.4 and your « backported » version which is build against kde 4.3 (remember that the backport are using package only available for 2010.0 in mandriva's repository) so it's definitly not going to work.
You need to rebuild them using -devel package for the kde 4.4 of 2010.0 to make it work correctly.
Which kde 4.4 are you using? build by yourself ? or from ftp.kde.org (build by neoclust) ?

You're totally right, I'm using KDE 4.4 from KDE FTP, but I didn't notice that "little" detail :p

Forget this comment and sorry about the noise.

 fixed Plasma crash

 
 by OdinEidolon on: Feb 16 2010
 
Score 50%

If anybody is interested, I fixed the plasma crash at startup just by installing smooth-tasks from AUR (I use Archlinux), without even uninstalling the previous version. This worked out of the box. 2010-13-2 is on AUR at the moment.
Don't ask me why this works tho :D

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
