Depends on  KDE 4.x

Submitted:  Dec 26 2009
Updated:  May 26 2011

Description:

This is a \"containment action\" (mouse action) plugin for the KDE Plasma Desktop (KDE SC 4.4 or newer).

With this plugin, you can configure a mouse button click to invoke a menu with your favorite applications.

Instead of listing all applications, it only lists the Kickoff favorite applications. The code is written by Chani Armitage, I only modified it slightly to parse the favorites.




Changelog:

0.2 fixes invokation on right mouse button click with KDE SC 4.6.

 Excellent!

I was hoping someone would make such a plugin, and I was rather surprised it wasn't included by default to be honest!

Anyhow, that's now taken care of! Thanks a lot!

 Okay, one bug...

It doesn't seem to like wine-programs. Everything in my kickoff favourites show up using this plugin EXCEPT the two wine-programs: Photoshop and Spotify.

The two programs run fine from kickoff though.

Forgot to mention: they show up in Chani's original "Application launcher" plugin.

How do these entries appear in .kde/share/config/kickoffrc? Usually it is /path/to/name.desktop, but might be different for wine apps.

That's how they look, yes. This is what spotify looks like:

/home/username/
.local/share/applications/wine/Programs/Spotify.desktop

And the .desktop file looks normal as well.

Like this:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Spotify
Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/username/.wine" wine "C:\\Program Files\\Spotify\\spotify.exe"
Type=Application
StartupNotify=true
Path=/home/username/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/Spotify
Icon=/home/username/.local/share/icons/bdbf_spotify.0.png

 Broken?

Sadly I can't get this to work anymore, running Arch and KDE 4.8. It installs fine but when activated all that ever pulls up is the "Desktop Settings" listing instead of any favorites.

I really miss this functionality!

Are you sure you are using version 0.2? It works fine here, even when configured to use the RMB.

You're right, I wasn't paying attention and was using the older version.

Version 2 is working fine. Thanks!

 /usr/share instead of /usr/local/share

Hi,

good stuff, it works for me when I

cmake . && make && make install
cp /usr/local/share/kde4/services/plasma-containmentactions-favorites.desktop /usr/share/kde4/services
cp /usr/local/lib64/kde4/plasma_containmentactions_favorites.so /usr/lib64/kde4/

in other words, please install to kde4-config --path services, not to /usr/local/share/kde4/services


Attention! Dates in calendar are closer than they appear.

Unless you tell cmake where to install, it will always default to /usr/local

Use cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`

Hi, Is it possible to get something like this but for browser bookmarks?

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
