Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  861
Submitted:  Jul 23 2011
Updated:  Jul 31 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

Some suggestions should improve UX: use keyboard to move the strap; kinetic move (useful with touchscreen and long strap).
This is a great effect. Keep up with the good job. :D

Well, first: it's GREAT.
Then second: BUT. (well, yes, there always is a but ;) )
Your idea was nice and the realization is even better. But I think it can be enhanced this way :
* allow direct clic & drag from the popup miniature (a bit like a task manager: click on an icon to go to the app; click on a free space to go to it)
* allow keyboard navigation (Windows/Cmd key + arrows, for example)
* allow the mouse to instantly move from right/left edge to the left/right one while sliding. It will allow us to have bigger straps, without any loss of time. To have a look at this functionality, open a long pdf file with okular and click & drag the document until your cursor reaches the top of your screen. It will disappear and appear at the bottom, without having lost its grip ;)
* Create some automated dispositions: for example, Windows/Cmd + Shift + A will make all windows vertically maximized, and wide enough for all them to fill All the strap (5 windows, 3840*1080 pxl strap -> 5 times 768*1080 windows, next to each other)
* Perhaps allow both vertical & horizontal strap?
* Allow reverse mouse movements (mouse goes right, strap goes right, not as it does right now)

Well, that's it!
Thanks a big lot for this awesome addon, I think I'd miss it if I couldn't use it anymore :)

 Can't cmake it, doesn't work

KDE 4.8:

If it finds something related to KActivities please send me a mail
(akreuzkamp@web.de) or add

a comment at kdeapps.org with the output of find in it. Else check your
KDE-Installation.


I have all the devel packages installed. None of them carry anything about /usr/include/kworkspace

For the record, it is a bug in the strap:

I don't have an account at redhat's bugzilla so I'll reply here:
kactivityconsumer.h and others have been removed from libkworkspace in 4.8, in favour of libkactivities:
http://commits.kde.org/kde-workspace/c3599917
libkactivities is not part of kde-workspace but a own repository and such a own package: kactivities(-devel). (See comment #1). So it is not a bug.

This effect is able to use /usr/include/kde4/kactivities/consumer.h (from kactivities-devel). You should install that package and retry.

Of course it is a bug. Your program does not compile as advertised in kde 4.8. This is a bug by definition. Fix the source to detect the correct header and use that header, then push the fix to your repo.

Nice to know it's working now :)

May I ask, what the problem was? just for personal interest. (Maybe I can use it to help others, who have the same problem)

you need the package "kactivities-devel". Are you sure you have it?
Which version of Fedora (I guess you're using Fedora) are you using and which repositories?

 OK the strap is working nicely

 
 by Rudd-O on: Feb 20 2012
 
Score 50%

but now I have the problem that I would like to situate newly created windows on empty space of the strap, or the newly created window to be kind of "wedged" between two open windows right now, bumping the windows on the right more to the right and making room for the new window.

Is that feasible?

So far great thing here.

Technically it's feasible, yes.
But it requires a really good concept how windows should be organized, how windows will moved when what happens (e.g. when a window get's closed or minimized), what cases exist, why one would open a window, what behaviour is expected in which case, etc.
If you can provide me such a concept, I'll do my best to implement it :)

PS: sorry for the delay of the reply, my first reply (~2days ago) was lost somehow...

Which distribution do you use and which version?
Do you have the kde devel packages installed? You'll eventually also need kactivities dev-packages.

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
