Workspace-Strap Effect

Workspace-Strap Effect
zoom


Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  929
Submitted:  Jul 23 2011
Updated:  Oct 25 2014

Description:

This is a KWin Effect that lets you organize your windows on a linear strap, that is bigger than your screen. Using configurable modifier keys, you can easliy move the part of the strap you see.
This gives you more space on your Desktop and more freedom in organizing your windows.

Requires KDE 4.7.

Attention: After updating your KDE-Version to a new Feature-Release (4.x) you have to rebuild this effect, as KWin doesn't load effects that were built against an older KDE-version than installed.

Features:
-A preview of the whole strap when pressing the modifier keys
-Automatically moves your view to a just activated window
-Choose between a horizontal strap (better for big screens) or a vertical strap (better for small screens)
-Shortcut (ALT+Meta+Space) to move the view to the center of the strap




Changelog:

0.1: Initial release
0.1.1: Added a README-file
0.1.2: Have a separate position for each virtual desktop and activity
0.2: Optionally make the strap vertical
1.0: -Make the strap automove when less than 33%(configurable) of the window is shown
-Shortcut to move the view to the center of the strap
-Remove the annoying flickering
-Fix a bug with tabbed windows (Requires 4.8)
-Improve the handling of maximized windows
-Fix the compiling bug of not finding kactivityconsumer.h
1.0.1: Fix 3 compiling errors, concerning kactivities
1.0.2: Fix a bug that caused the effect to move only one window on 4.7
1.0.3: Make the effect work again with KDE >= 4.11 (tested with 4.13)
1.0.4: Fix two small bugs from previous version
1.0.5: Fix automove

To give you any help you need to do what the error message sais:
"Please run 'find /usr/include -name *consumer.h'."
and post the result here. Moreover you should look out for a package called kactivities-devel (or similar) in your packagemanager, you will probably need it.

 Shortcut to center

 
 by FSchulz on: Jan 6 2012
 
Score 50%

Maybe you said it anywhere and I didn't found it, but you should say the users, that you can center the view/strap by pressing meta+alt+space. A few months ago I suggested this feature and you implemented it (and I love it), so I think its important, that other people also now it. ;)

Best regards!

Sorry, I planned to inform you, but I have forgotten it...
What exactly do you mean with "say the users, that you can center the view/strap by pressing meta+alt+space"? a kind of hint, when using the effect (do you have an idea where to place the hint?) or what did you think of?

No not in the effect-setting-window, but maybe on this kde-look-page (in the information area) ;). Another suggestion is, that the user can set the time, the slide effect needs to change the window, which is focused (I hope you know what you mean). At the moment the slide effect is a little bit to slow for me.

Best regards and thanks for your work! :)

first check whether /usr/lib/libkactivities.so.5 or /usr/lib64/libkactivities.so.5 exists.
If not there should be a package libkactivities (or similar) in the fedora-repositories. If it exists, install it, else post again here with the information you gained.

hi kanton,

thanks for your fast reply.

funny thing is, libkactivities is installed (libkactivities 6.1-2.fc16), but there's no

libkactivities.so.5, libkactivities.so.6.0.0 is installed...

ah...
well, do you use the standard-repos for kde or do you use some other e.g. a seperate update-repo?
If not, I fear I can do nothing, until the OBS gets current packages.

This is because the OpenSUSE Build Service is currently down for maintanance. I guess it will be available again tomorrow. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I can't help here. Just wait ;)

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.
