Description:

Plasmoid providing fancy visualization of tasks, launchers and jobs for those who need full power of task manager and fresh look.
Developed and tested on KDE 4.8 with Qt 4.8 (Kubuntu 12.04).

Some screen casts:

Milestone 1.1 (current) will be last one using libtaskamanager and hopefully will be soon replaced by currently developed data engine based version (which should lower requirements back to KDE 4.6 or maybe earlier, depending on which one shipped first functional version of tasks data engine).

Milestone 2.0 will bring new dock management library which will allow for more advanced features. There will be also new, QML based, applet interface (might be available earlier, depends on progress on library).

Note that included panel was made only for test and could make various problems, use it on your own risk (I'll focus on it later).

This applet uses standard libtaskmanager like other task managers in KDE, so before you report bug check if it also happens in other applets (for example default Tasks applet).

Tips:
- to make applet more usable you can put it on panel with enabled option "Windows can cover" or similar;
- you can use theme with panel background similar to that of dock (for example Sabre Tiger) or modify current one using Desktop Theme Details;
- you can add launchers to applet by drag and drop of URLs and desktop files when Plasma is unlocked or using configuration dialog;
- to show only launchers you need to remove tasks area item from arrangement;
- to show application jobs you need to add jobs area.

Hidden options:
You can set them in applets configuration file (usually located at ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc), in group containing line plugin=fancytasks or plugin=fancypanel;
- initialZoomLevel - initial zoom level for zoom move animations (value ranging from 0 to 1, default: 0.7);
- paintBackground - decides if background should be painted or not (true or false, default: true);
- paintReflections - decides if icon reflection should be painted or not, note that it won't change icon size because of space allocation for drawing task indicators (true or false, default: true).

Features:
- manages your tasks, launchers and application jobs;
- tasks filtering, grouping (including manual) and sorting;
- keyboard navigation (Tab and Shift+Tab);
- launcher to task transition with custom connecting rules (icons of launchers with running tasks are hidden if sorting other than manual is enabled);
- tool tips with live preview of windows when KWin Taskbar Thumbnail effect is enabled;
- highlighting windows when hovering cursor over task or window preview when KWin Highlight Window effect is enabled;
- dropping files on launchers runs command with parameters or gives option to move, copy or link them (if target is directory);
- visual drop indicator that helps in manual tasks sorting and rearranging launchers;
- possibility to browse directories of directory launchers using context menu;
- possibility to add application menus;
- menu with list of all icons shown after activating keyboard shortcut;
- configurable animations (zoom, jump, bounce, highlight, etc.) and appearance (optional thumbnails and text label);
- fully animated icons (including animations of starting applications, tasks needing attention and application jobs progress).

If you have found bugs or have suggestions you can contact me via email, message or using comments, before you will vote bad.
And remember that not everybody has enough time for fast replying. ;-)

Don't be silly, don't vote bad just for fun!




Changelog:

1.1.2 (10.06.2012):
- increased task light size a bit;
- fixed label position for zoom animation;
- avoid hijacking of icons with launcher connected to task group (if grouping by program);
- clear thumbnail when launcher looses connected task.

1.1.1 (01.06.2012):
- reuse launcher icons by tasks also when using manual sorting;
- let startups connect to launcher icons (when there is no sorting or it set to manual);
- do not lose connection with launcher when group is created (if grouping by program);
- enable Apply button when configuration values are changed;
- do not propose to drop icon in place which equals its current index;
- enable Add / Remove action buttons;
- many other fixes and changes.

 some bugs on 0.9.5

Hi,
I just noticed a bugs (maybe it's a misconfiguration on my part).
Regarding the applet, it's just install with favorites as mentionned in the changelog, but if i try to configure it (event without changing anything in the configuration ) it's loosing all the favorites, keeping only the current tasks.

Regarding the panel, it is normal that i can't resize it?

Thanks for reports. :-)

1. Yes, possible, I'll fix this in next release.

2. Yes, it's normal, it is only for testing purposes, to check if this is right way to go.
You can read more about Plasma limitations and problems with custom containments on previous page. ;-)

This fix should resolve problem with disappearing launchers from Kickoff, replace similar code from init() method in applet/FancyTasksApplet.cpp:

if (!configuration.hasKey("arrangement"))
{
KConfig kickoffConfiguration("kickoffrc", KConfig::NoGlobals);
KConfigGroup favoritesGroup(&kickoffConfiguration, "Favorites");

m_arrangement = favoritesGroup.readEntry("FavoriteURLs", QStringList());

if (m_arrangement.count())
{
m_arrangement.append("separator");
}

m_arrangement.append("tasks");

configuration.writeEntry("arrangement", m_arrangement);

emit configNeedsSaving();
}

Hi Emdek!

After long-time on kde 4.2 I finally upgrated to kde 4.3 (there are still no official kde 4.3 for mandriva stable grrrr 'evil') and the first thing I did is I installed new fancy tasks.


Well, great as allways. :-)
But
Is there any posibility to resize applet(make it smaller)when placed on desktop?

Thanks. :-)

Still no packages for 4.3? Maybe in backport repositories (using 2010.0 alpha 2 is not so bad ;-))?

Resizing of applet on desktop works (for custom panel there is no option, I need feedback to decide if I should use panel controller or work on custom thing that simply can't have all needed features, check comment on previous page for details), smoother than in the past but should be better (and I hope that will be ;-)).

There's some kde 4.3 package made by helio available on ftp.kde.org if you didn't find them before (for 2009.0 & 2009.1).
It's not going to be an official backport for 2009.1 (so i can't put this plasmoid as backport too)

Yes, this is what I did.
helio's packages work without any issue, but the french translation is not complete, so I have now a semi-french - semi-english KDE.

This is kind of new dependency (for trash better integration), try to install kdebase-runtime-devel or something similar.

When is the applet on left screen the tooltips gets on the right screen. To fix it add to the FancyTasksApplet.cpp on line 1568 this

if (location() != Plasma::RightEdge && position.rx() < screenRect.left())
{
position.rx() = screenRect.left();
}

Thanks for patch. :-)
I'm planning to release new version tomorrow.

By the way, I want to merge already accepted elements of mine tool tips implementation upstream for 4.4 and drop custom custom ones because this is the road to hell. ;-)

Check if you have all needed packages (there is some dependencies to avoid code duplication and get better integration), you can find some common problems in comments (like usual lack of libkonq, sometimes packaged with other libraries as kdeabse-devel probably);

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.
