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

 Request

This is a great applet. Thanks for the hard work!

I do have one request. I don't know if it is even possible, not to mention feasible, but if it is I think it would be really useful. The idea is that, as an additional middle-click option, middle-clicking on a group of tasks displays all the windows in that group using the "present windows" kwin effect.

The normal task manager does this, the effect is triggered by ctrl+left click, but I think triggering it using the middle click would be better since it doesn't involve the keyboard. See below for a description of the implementation in the default task manager:
http://www.notmart.org/index.php/Software/Plasma_and_KWin

A related question: does smooth tasks implement this effect at all? ctrl+click does not seem to work for me with smooth tasks, so I was wondering if it was triggered in some other way, or not at all.

 Launcher support test code

Hi panzi,

I added primitive support for launchers to Smooth Tasks. You can find the change in:

http://bitbucket.org/jinliu/smooth-tasks

Select the group mode "Pinned", then the context menu has a new item "Pin". Use it to pin a task to the bar. (Must have a .desktop file the same name as the window class.)

Hope you can merge this into your code. :-)

you should combine tasks with application launcers... you know... like in windows 7...
fancytasks implemented somthing like that... it should be possible for you :)

Read the description text above. There exists a hack that abuses grouping for that purpose, though:
http://bitbucket.org/jinliu/smooth-tasks/overview/
(I think you cant use any other grouping features when using this.)

It is impossible to select grouped tasks if tooltips are turnet off.
I think, there should be option, to display tooltips without thumbnails on grouped items.

 plasma preview

the plasma preview is nice but is there a way to make the previewed window non-transparent?? I can barely even see it in the preview.

I'm talking about when you hover over one of the preview popups and it tries to hide everything but the hovered window.

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.
