Version Control:  Link

Submitted:  Mar 8 2011
Updated:  Aug 1 2011

Description:

A KDE plasmoid that shows active application’s icon and/or name. I think it is useful to use jointly the menubar. It is based on current app control. In fact, it would better if the active application applet was eventually part of the menubar applet.

To install:
- extract to a folder and once there
- mkdir build && cd build
- cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
- make
- sudo make install

Any (constructive) feedback is welcome




Changelog:

Version 0.2.2

- Fixed a bug that caused the applet to look ugly in light plasma themes

Version 0.2.1

- Fixed a bug that caused plasma-desktop impossible to be rebooted

Version 0.2

- Added options to choose whether to show only app name (default), only icon, or both.

- Removed extra left space

Version 0.1.2

- Truncated application names are more fancy now

Version 0.1.1

- Application names are kept to a single line

- Application names are truncated to 15 characters max.

First release 0.1

 Build Error

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:
X11_XTest_LIB (ADVANCED)
linked by target "plasma_applet_activeapp" in directory /media/data/Downloads/active-app

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

That is what I got when I tried building on Kubuntu 10.10

 Menu

 
 by KawaiiMomokoChan on: Apr 12 2011
 
Score 50%

I love this, but it would be even better if clicking the icon showed the current application menu. Something like Kwin Button Applet's 'menu' mode, but with the name of the application as an added bonus. Also it would be cool to have an option to just show the Application's name, without the icon. Just a few suggestions.

yes, I had this idea about the kwin menu too, only that I don't know how to do it yet.

I'm kind of busy right now but it's possible that in a while I try to merge active application into the menubar applet. Then at least the option to show or not the icon will be there for sure.

The use of active application in the menubar will be configurable (for those who like the menubar like it is now)

And this doesn't mean that active application is going to disappear, I can use this part of the code for itself (for those who don't like the menubar)

:)

How did you get menu bar, like on the second and third screenshots? The only thing, that I see, is an icon and application's name.

well, the application icon and name is actually all what active application is (at least right now). what you are asking is about the menubar widget. they (active application and menubar) are two independent widgets, although it could be possible that at some point active application could be also part of the menubar...

That would be nice.
Oh, and by the way, could you point me, where I can find this independent menubar widget?

 Arch package

Good work on this plasmoid ;)

I took the liberty of creating a package for Arch Linux in AUR here: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=49365

If there's any problem let me know.

 debian package

Score 50%

i did:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4127065/debian%20package/natty/activeapps/plasma-activeapp_0.1.2%7Epeace1.deb

to do that i used cpack. cmakelist modified in this way

http://paste.ubuntu.com/614061

===>
sudo apt-get install libxtst-dev
kdelibs5-dev

to correct this :

Linking CXX shared module lib/plasma_applet_activeapp.so
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lkworkspace
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

i did this and it fixed the problem

sudo apt-get build-dep plasma-widget-xbar


mkdir build && cd build && cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`


then

cpack ..

debian packages should be generated so...
sudo dpkg -i plasma-activeapp*

This I made on purpose, because I wanted to associate the active application (icon and label) better to the menubar, so I kept here the same separation, but I also wanted to easily distinguish from the launcher, so I put a bigger separation there

maybe it would be better to use a panel separator to do the job while keeping lay->setContentsMargins(5, 0, 5, 0); but I also wanted this default behavior for the people that doesn't know/want to tweak little things. I may reconsider if most of the people dislikes this default.

anyways, if you really want to change this, just modify lay->setContentsMargins(15, 0, 5, 0); to lay->setContentsMargins(5, 0, 5, 0); in activeapp.cpp

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
