Description:

This is a NEW SuperKaramba version of TuxBar!

Now it has full SMOOTH zoom just like in MacOS X! The bar even grows and the icons move almost exactly as in OS X. See the power of SuperKaramba :)

Please make sure you are using SuperKaramba 0.17f or HIGHER! Notice the "f"!
The newest version of SuperKaramba speeds things up A LOT.

PS: You can steal the tuxbar.py to add parametric zoom to your own themes.




Changelog:

2.0 - 0.17g:

You need this version if you have upgraded to SuperKaramba 0.17g - otherwise there are no changes.

 some problems....

I don't know if I've overlooked any config issues or what, but the bar doesn't show up at all.
It's just there as a hidden thing!!

I've tried changing the picture paths to absolute path and also tried just running the original. Neither worked.

So, here's what i think may be the problem : What is SuperKaramba, and how is different from the karamba by Hans Klarsson ? http://www.efd.lth.se/~d98hk/karamba/karamba.html

Cheers.

Well thats your problem... you are using this SuperKaramba theme with regular karamba.

SuperKaramba is a new version of Karamba (still based on the original Karamba) I wrote that supports interactive widgets (you can program to do all kinds of things that aren't remotely possible in Karamba).

If you view this theme in regular karamba, nothing at all with show up other then a blank rectangle.

You need to download super karamba (look in the new releases under "Kde Improvements").

Make sure that when you install SuperKaramba that you overwrite your old karamba executable or at least make sure you call the correct karamba executable. SuperKaramba can run old regular themes fine but Karamba can't do much of anything with a SuperKaramba theme and you don't want to accidently run the old Karamba when you type "karamba" in a console.

 Slow?

my first reply didnt show up, hope this one does. If I move my mouse over the bar it works perfect without any "lag" and my cpu goes to 40%, only when I start moving my mouse like a maniac in 100km/h it goes up to 100%.

btw, great work, I really love this bar
keep up the good work

Request: maby a systray? :)

sorry for my spamming, need to remember to put all replies in 1 and same submission, but I noticed someone with AMD athlon 2000+ said he got 100% cpu usage, well, I use Intel Celleron, maby thats why my 600Mhz don't die when running the bar

I think it must depend a lot on the video drivers in use.

On my laptop (1.6ghz geforce 2mx), I can't make it go over 6% cpu and mp3s play in the background just fine.

You say it uses about 40% cpu when redrawing on a 600mhz machine with a GeForce2. That sounds reasonable compared to my laptop.

But someone said it uses a 100% cpu on an Athlon 2000XP. They must have really slow video drivers or something. And on my 650mhz desktop (with a crappy TNT2 or something and who knows what video drivers), it is very laggy.

So I guess like a lot of things, the bottleneck isn't the cpu (running the scaling code) , but maybe the video/cpu interface or something else I haven't thought of.

One of the coolest things about SuperKaramba is that all the python functions that you call from your python script are implemented in pure c++ so there should be almost no overhead by using python (unless you do something really crazy in your python code).

Very nice!
Can I suggest only one improvement ?
When the mouse is out the panel is in the standard position. But in the moment when the mouse entries in the panel the enlargment of the icons (and of the panel ) is imediate. For me is better if in the moment when mouse entries in the "hot area" the icon enlarge gradually..so the two moments (mouse out and mouse over) will linked perfectly together and smooth effect will very similar tu Mac OSX

Hi!

 Define "smooth"?

 
 by ThatComputerGuy on: Apr 21 2003

I just built both this and SuperKaramba 0.17d today, so I have the latest versions of both packages, but TuxBar's scaling isn't smooth at all.

If I move from one icon to the next at a rate of say, 1 to 2 seconds travel time, I get about 6 to 8 distinct (read: choppy) movements of the icons.

I'm running this on Slackware 9 system, an XP 1600+ with a GF4 Ti4200 and 512MB ram. As soon as I place the mouse over the TuxBar, cpu usage by X shoots up to nearly 100% (90, 95, and even higher).

Anyone else seeing these problems? If the smoothness can be fixed, the TuxBar will be a VERY nice addition to KDE...

Well, turns out it was Operator Error to some extent.. I was still running the *cough* 3123 NVidia drivers. Just upgraded 4349, and TuxBar is _much_ smoother. Damn near OS X smooth, I'd say.

Keep up the good work.

You are out of your mine.. hehe..

But here's how to replace kicker (you can switch back later if you want)

cd ~/.kde/share/autostart
cp [KDE-dir]/share/autostart/panel.desktop ./

edit panel.desktop and change the line that says "Exec=kicker" to "Exec=/path/to/karamba /path/to/tuxbar.theme"


Thats it.

Replace [KDE-dir] with where you have kde installed. For example on Mandrake its "/usr" and on SuSE I believe its "/opt/kde3". And of course on the Exec line put the full path to karamba and tuxbar.

If you want to switch back to kicker, just:

rm ~/.kde/share/autostart/panel.desktop

and log back in.

Have fun :) Just make sure you do all this as the user your want to replace kicker for.

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
