KDE Improvement

KSmoothDock is a cool desktop panel (like KDE's kicker) for KDE 3.2 and above with smooth zooming (2 modes: normal and parabolic). Its aim is to provide a cool alternative/complement to kicker. As it is intended for KDE/Linux, its behaviour will be like that of kicker.
- Programming language: C++
- Libraries used: KDE 3.2 (or above)

Hope it will be useful for you!


It seems that automake-1.9 is not backward compatible with automake-1.7, so please upgrade to automake-1.9 before you compile KSmoothDock. To check the version of automake on your system, run:
automake --version

TO INSTALL: Unzip, cd to the directory ksmoothdock then run:
make install

Then run:

(if when you run "ksmoothdock", nothing happens, then it is likely that your KDE dir is not standard. In this case, either:
- cd to the directory ksmoothdock/src, then run "./ksmoothdock", or
- Re-do the above sequence (./configure ...), but instead of "./configure", type:
./configure --prefix=/YOUR_KDE_DIR

IF YOU BUILD ANY BINARY PACKAGE: please send it to me, thanks.


SCREENSHOTS: normal zoom mode and parabolic zoom mode (#1), config dialog (#2), quick launchers editor (#3)

Short FAQ:
1. System tray? I will implement this feature very soon.

2. Drag-and-drop? I will implement this very soon.

3. Real transparency? I will implement this when the technology (XGl or any other) becomes more mature, stable and widely used. At the moment, it is not so yet.

DANG Viet D(z)ung


New features:
- New command line options:
--resetConfig reset configuration data
--resetLaunchers reset quick launchers data

Bug fixes:
- Fixed some display bugs (on both normal and parabolic zoom modes) in v4.4.

- Parabolic zoom mode now works correctly under latest KDE releases.

New features:
- The "auto-hiding" feature has been re-implemented
- Added right-click popup menu for pager, taskbar (re-added) and clock
- Dock Position Conflict Dialog: added an option not to show it again

Other changes:
- The range of icon sizes have been increased
- Desktop icon area is now adjusted correctly
- Some other minor fixes.


New features:
- The Parabolic Zoom mode has been considerably improved.
- A task that demands attention now has better blinking notification.

Bug fix:
- The dock now does not steal mouse/keyboard focus when being zoomed in
- Fixed other minor bugs.

Other changes:
- The popup menu of a task button has been removed, because while it is of little use, it has problems with the parabolic zoom's animation.


New feature:
- Blink a task's icon when it demands attention

Some minor optimisations

Fixed the following bug:
- Option "Show windows from all desktops": "off" does not function properly


New feature:
- Add a separator between the launchers and the taskbar when the pager is not shown.

Fixed the following bugs:
- Normal zoom mode, LEFT or RIGHT position : the dock does not highlight the launcher on click acknowledgement.
- Normal zoom mode: a tiny part of the dock is not updated correctly.
- Parabolic zoom mode, LEFT position: drawing bug.
- Parabolic zoom mode: mouse click still works outside the visible area of the dock.
- About dialog: some text corrected.

v4.0: Redesign and rewrite the program from scratch. Thus it should now run better overall and is easier to maintain (fix bugs, implement new features...) than previous versions.

New features:
- POSITION SETTING: now the dock can be set to one of four positions on the screen: TOP, BOTTOM, LEFT, RIGHT.
- Switch zoom mode now does not require restarting the dock.
- Left click on the clock now shows the calendar.
- Add a "create a new link to folder" button in Edit Quick Launch Menu dialog.

Bug fix:
- The pager now displays mini-wallpapers correctly when the dock starts.
- Fixed other minor bugs.

ksmoothdock doesn't work with KDE 3.5.5 (SVN of today). the bar starts, but the zoom doesn't work well. it is clipped to the panel's rectangle, which is too small. so, when the icons get big, they are cut.

Have you tried install libgamin-dev?
Some user has fixed the bug by this.

Btw, this is really a strange bug as KSMoothDock works perfectly well for KDE 3.5.1 (in general 3.5.x before 3.5.5). I can't understand why a bug-fix release like 3.5.5 would break things.

nice to see this dock again...

some remarks:
o I can't open the config dialog. I have only a popup menu with one item ("close task").
o Still I don't feel comfortable with that. Is it possible to load Kicker applets? That would be great indeed. Finally, instead of pushing too much effort into an own pager I could use my own, including device applets, systray and so on... You could make these applets zoomable as well - receive the pixmap of the applet and update this pixmap on certain events. This pixmap is scaled down and shown in the dock. When hovering the mouse, the pixmap scales large and the applet becomes clickable, now being in its correct size.

Is that possible?

Moreover, I found some crash:

The popup menu depends on the section of the dock that you are clicking on.

Try clicking onto a launcher, a pager or the clock and have a look ;)

I have only the taskbar visible. I don't like the pager and so on, so I switched them off in previous versions.

I have the same problems to reconfigure my ksmoothDock.After i make the decision to kick out Kstart and the clock, i wasn't able to change any settings.

Also I've seen those errors above in my terminal!
Please make a configuration-shortcut!

Kind regards & Schönen Gruß,

I recieve this error when I run ./configure:
"checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!"
I also got this when trying to do the same for another app. Would anyone mind telling me how to fix this? I am running Mandriva Free 2007, if that makes a difference. Thanks!

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.
