Description:

UPDATED for KDE 4.6

This is a fork of the tasks applet you know from KDE extended by some extra features. Version 0.2 is the same tasks applet as you have in KDE 4.6.2 + the "icon only"-mode.

The inital additional feature to the common task applet is to hide the text labels of applications - just displaying the icons. Cudos for the feature itself goes to the plasma-devs. Since KDE 4.5 the taskbar will hide the text-label if there is "not enough room". I just added an option to force this behaviour. The plasma-devs have rejected this as a configuration option for the vanilla tasks applet.

REQUIREMENTS (tested, might be lower):
- You need a working GNU Compiler toolchain.
- Cmake
- KDE >= 4.4 Headers files (kde development packages)
- QT >= 4.6 Header files (QT development packages)


HOW TO INSTALL

In the main directory run
- cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
- make
- make install/strip (as root or: sudo make install/strip )


The applet is named "Flexible Task Manager" in the applet list.

 smooth tasks

Isn't this exactly what smooth tasks does?
Sorry if I'm missing something.

When I saw it on the front page I was hoping this was going to be a dockbarx for kde.
The taskbar really needs app pinning, it's such a waste of space if you also use launchers to have each icon on there twice when running.

Smooth tasks is written from scratch. This plasmoid is a fork of the default kde taskbar.

launchersupport is included in libtaskmanager in kde-trunk and soon the applets will implement it too so for KDE 4.6 you'll have support for "app pinning"

You may need to install the 'kdebase-workspace-dev' package.

 Middle click close

One feature I really miss in the default taskbar is middle clicking a task to close it.

It makes closing multiple windows so much faster (rather than right click > close window for each window).

It would be great if you could add that feature.

You can already find this option in the settings of the "Smooth tasks" plasmoid, which I strongly recommend as a stable and feature-rich replacement for the original task manager.

I must say that I don't really see a need for yet another derivation (after Stasks, Smooth tasks, even Fancy tasks) which does basically the same thing.

Actually I think there is a good reason for this plasmoid to exist. Firstly the default task manager has some features that smooth-tasks and the others don't (animations when closing, splitting groups, present windows on a group).

Also the plasma devs do not want certain features to be present in the default task manager, which is understandable as it can make the configuration difficult for normal users. So this plasmoid is useful for users that have advanced functionality that won't be added to the default task manager. And if some of the features are useful enough, the plasma devs may add it to the default task manager. A similar thing happened to the nitrogen style and window decoration, which has now merged with the official oxygen style.

Another advantage is that if there are any features / bugs fixed in the default task manager, they can be added to this plasmoid and vice versa.

OK, convinced.
Maybe the Plasma devs could hide the option somewhere deep in the settings, so that it doesn't *cough* confuse some users, while experienced users tend to dig through all those tabs anyhow and will find it useful.

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.
