Description:

This is an activity containment that adds to the desktop the ability to group your widgets inside frames in various arrangements.
Currently there is a group that layouts the widgets inside a grid, one that puts them in a stack, one that puts them in tabs and one that leaves them free to move.

How to install
First compile it, so extract the package, go into the folder which was created with a terminal, and execute:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$(kde4-config --prefix) ../
make
sudo make install
kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental

After that open the "Desktop Preferences", select "Activity" and then from the drop-down menu "GroupingDesktop". Now you could relogin to make sure it will all go ok.
Now you have only to right click on the desktop, add a group, drop your widgets in it and enjoy!

Be aware that it requires at least KDE SC 4.5, cause 4.4 has some nasty bugs that will break it.

You can see a video preview (already old, actually) on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL0PU2-u0E8

You can find the most recent code on http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdeplasma-addons/containments/groupingdesktop/.
You can download it with "svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdeplasma-addons/containments/groupingdesktop".

 Good idea

Great! I've been looking for a while for a way to stack all my notes plasmoids, this seems to be just what I needed.

Do you think a stacked disposition (I mean, some plasmoids partially covering others) would be possible?

Thanks for your work and keep on it :D

i don't think i've completely understood what you mean: you mean that the plasmoids parially cover each other and clicking on one of them you bring it to the top?
anyway, pretty much all the ways to arrange them could be done from a technical point of view.

Sorry if I didn't explain myself in the previous comment.

Sometimes it's really hard to explain to others what on your mind are simple concepts, and almost always it's better to explain it with just an image, so here it is:

yes, i think it could be possible. a group could layout the applets in that way and bring on the front the applet you want when you want.
anyway i'm sorry but you must wait a bit. i just started the panel containment and i think it will take a bit.

It's great to know it's technically possible, also, I hope you enjoy hacking on it and this containment find its way to main Plasma.

maybe you'll be happy to know i'm doing a StackingGroup :).
It is on the KDE svn, and it isn't yet finished. Anyway the major things are there and it works. And i started it this morning :)

Do I understand that correct?

Your plasmoid is a free floating containment? If so, it is possible to set e.g. a complete taskbar, which does not is attached to one of the edges, that can be placed anywhere on the desktop?

well, i'm not sure what you mean with taskbar. if you want a box containing other plasmoids, then yes. add a group, drop your applets in it and move it where you want.

I mean the standard containment that contains kmenu > quickstart > tasks > clock, and so on ...

well, with this you can make a sort of panel free to move, but it won't stay over the windows or auto-hide or things like that.

 Tabbed Group

 
 by lbl on: Jun 18 2010

Is there any way I can convince you to create a tabbed group? like having a group with a tabbar and on each tab there are different plamoids.

I like having a nice and clean desktop so I put all my plasmoids on my dashboard (separate dashboard). but the space there is limited cause there's no activities for the dashboard.

I'm stunned by your work, it's seems to be well coded is modular and extend-able. (something I failed so far)

Well, i've already thought of doing it, it's only a matter of time. currently i'm focusing on bug fixing (the svn version is already more stable then the one here), and i would like to restart the work on the panel containment.
From your last line it seems you are a developer and you tried to code a thing like this. Am i right? If so you're really welcome to contribute! :-)

I tried to create a Containment but failed. I saw my mistake when I tried your containment and realised how far I'm away from how plasma really works and is meant to be used.

But sure, if I have a good idea and some free time I'll send you some code or ask you questions :)

great! anyway if you're waiting for ideas, you already had one: the tabbed group! it shouldn't be too difficult. you see, it took me 2 days to do the stacking group!
if you have some free time and you want to do it, maybe you could drop on irc, in #plasma. i'm often there.

Ciao!

Great idea, this should really become one of the default activities of KDE.

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
