KDE Improvement

Score 77%

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.

 Compiz trouble

 by sebasch on: Apr 4 2008
Score 50%

Hi, I can't get this working under compiz, sometimes X server crash if I start ksmoothdock manually, but it can't finish starting if I put in the kde auto-startup folder.

If I disable the Compiz Window Manager, it works fine.

Any ideas?

 Signal 8

I LOVE this app and have it on all of my machines. I have one that sometimes crashes Ksmoothdock with a signal 8. I am pretty new at using Linux and don't know what that means. This is a wonderful app and I cannot thank you enough for creating it. Signal 8? What does it mean?

 Wine stuff broke

 by tipp98 on: Apr 17 2008
Score 50%

I've got two issues, both involve launching wine apps Ventrilo and World of Warcraft.

Issue #1 - Ventrilo

Ksmoothdock truncates the command of the launcher (i.e. the launcher works until I try to launch it from the dock)

command: env WINEPREFIX="/home/Fred/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\Ventrilo\Ventrilo.exe"

after the failed launch, the command is broken to the following and no longer works from within the menu folder.
env WINEPREFIX="/home/Fred/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\Ventrilo\Ventr

Issue #2 - WoW

command: wine "/games/World of Warcraft/Wow.exe"

clicking this icon works from the menu folder, but not from the dock.

Try this way without quotes:
wine /home/user/.wine/drive_c/path_to_game

This is how I have issue #2 set up. "/games" is mapped to "g:". Like I said, this works outside of the dock. I have also tried the wine "g:\{game}" method. I was thinking it was a permission issue and tried the "env WINEPREFIX=" that my ventrilo launcher uses but that failed also. I still think the wine issue (I've seen others complain about wine not working on this dock) is permission related. Such maybe that the dock runs programs under it's own ID, and said user ID doesn't have permission to my WINEPREFIX.

I dont use any env WINEPREFIX words in my command line and ksmoothdock works with my Warcraft 3.

I repeat, try this:
wine /home/Fred/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Ventrilo/Ventrilo.exe

wine /home/Fred/.wine/drive_c/games/World\ of\ Warcraft/Wow.exe

Nope, doesn't work. I copied and pasted exactly as you instructed and they both failed. Of course, the ventrilo shortcut is no longer truncated as the command is shorter without wineprefix (The only reason the prefix was there in the first place is because it was a straight copy from the shortcut wine placed in the K menu). Your Wow.exe fails because it is not installed on the wine C: drive, it is installed on the wine G: drive, which is mapped to /games on the local file system. Like I said, the shortcuts work outside of the dock, including your ventrilo.exe example, and I don't think any amount of tweaking the command to do it this way or do it that way will solve the problem, save for the truncation issue, which is not really a problem. I saw a post earlier that had a link to a similar or same issue, but the link was broke....

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.
