This is a fork of mbaszczewskis STasks plasmoid. For the original STasks code go there:

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.

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:

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:

Debian, Ubuntu and Fedora have official packages.

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:

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.


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

 Increase maximum item size

Could you please increase the limit for the size of expanded items? It stops at 1000px, but I want my task items to fill up all available space on a 1920px panel.

Nice plasmoid! But how is it possible to disable (or change) the animation?

Which animation? Is setting the animation duration to 0ms what you want?

 Previews problem with Compiz

 by flavs on: Apr 8 2011

This taskbar is absolutely amazing.

Though there's a problem when running it with compiz: the preview thumbnails appear blurred and as if they were behind the plasma translucent frame.

Any idea why this is happening?

Thank you for your work. It's highly appreciated.

I'm amazed that there even are previews using compitz, because I thought I'm using a kwin specific feature here.

 Upside down...

When using smooth tasks on a side panel, the first item starts at the bottom. Thats quite an annoying bug. Its something that i first noticed in Flupp and jimmy's version. Otherwise great plasmoid.
Thank you very much

This was a design decision of mine. Since the task buttons can be expanded and there may be multiple lines (or maybe better call it columns in vertical mode?), I orientated things as you would expect from a book shelf: The Text is written bottom-up and if you read many book titles (i.e. lines of task buttons) you do this from left to right, as usual. (Unfortunately, not all books stick to this rule.) But maybe things should be different for right-to-left fonts.

Okay thanks i understand that. I was thinking about the bug panzi wrote about and from what i experienced its really annoying if one has too many items on the task manager. Maybe it would be possible to make the task manager's size flexible. That would eliminate the inherent settings of libtaskmanager who wants to squeeze everything to the "default" size of the applet in the panel. Thank you again

After rereading this i saw my thinking is wrong. The panel size makes the plasmoid squeeze the icons so it's flexibility has nothing to achieve here.

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.
