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.

 Autohide has an error

 
 by FSchulz on: Sep 22 2009
 
Score 50%

I'm very happy with the new version and I use the stand alone version, so I don't need a seperate panel any more. The reason I wrote here is to post a bug. Sometimes, when I go over the plasmoid and I leave the plasmoid with the mouse, the plasmoid don't hide anymore. I use the autohide option. This error happens often. When I restart plasma, then the plasmoid acts the right way and hides automatical. So I have no idea, why it happens. With a normal panel, I don't have this bug.

Best regards!

Thanks for report. :-)
This is known issue, in my case Plasma often mixes settings for panels, for example autohide setting for Fancy Panel is applied to another one, the same for placement...
I'll try to find reason but probably these all issues come from one reason, nobody else uses custom panel containments so that use case was not tested extensively and there are no examples (except default panel but it is used to contain multiple applets).
It would be better if there could be hidden option for panel to set custom background, then that whole custom panel wouldn't be needed, it's only benefit is that it gives possibility to use own background. ;-)

 Raising windows from tooltip

 
 by steveke on: Sep 26 2009
 
Score 50%

Hello again!

I have noticed that when a tooltip is clicked for an application that is grouped, and these windows are behind (unfocused), the window that is clicked in the tooltip is minimised rather that being raised - is that expected behaviour? Only it seems to me that the first click should raise the window and the second minimise it once raised.

As always, thanks for your attention and to let you know that I have become extremely dependent on the Fancy Panel now ;-)

This is not intended.

Hi! thank you for this app... i just love it! i've been waiting for such a dock for kde4 since its early releases...
that's why i want to help you turning it into a stable killer-app ;)
that's what i noticed: if you set no sort for icons and you have some launcher with a customized icon, as soon as that app gets minimized, or whatever other action, plasma starts crashing.
i tried it with amule and firefox with customized icons... no way! on the other side, with other apps/sorting settings it's perfectly working.
Hope it was useful and easy to fix :D
cheers!

uh, i'm using fancy panel 0.9.8 on kubuntu 9.10.. just as you know

and by the way, there's another bug i forgot to tell you: if you add A LOT of launchers (and tasks of course) and the panel gets wide enough to go over the screen width, it auto cuts itself into a higher and shorter panel that only shows the first 4 or 5 icons.. the way to resolve it (till now) is just to reduce the height of the whole panel... it would be a great thing a sort-of auto resizing of icons on a too long panel.
cheers!

Thanks for report and idea. :-)

Do you get dialog with crash information when it happens? If it contains valid backtrace (you can paste it somewhere and put link in the comment) it could help in fixing it. But it will be done properly when I'll finish my libtaskmanager replacement which was designed to be used also in dock like managers (Fancy Tasks 2.0 will be based on it, when ready).

There is one problem with that issue with too big icons, applet needs to know that it has nor enough space (I'm not sure if it is possible to check it automatically). It could be done by specifying behaviour (static size or flexible with maximum and maybe minimum size). Also there are two ideas how it should behave then, one is smaller icons other is kind of scrolling interface (like in Raptor mockups or similar to new widget explorer).
Also these changes are planned for new milestone which will be started after releasing first stable version (I hope that it will be in this or next month, studies started again...) and will be available along updates for milestone 1.

 Bug: plasma crash

 
 by gzmorell on: Nov 4 2009
 
Score 50%

fancytasks seems to crash plasma when closing some applications.
I have noticed this closing krusader and also evolution.
Sometimes the application icon in the applet keeps bouncing after closing.
I am using Kubuntu 9.10 release. Fancytasks is version 0.9.8 and KDE 4.3.2
Is there any debug version of the package in order to include a better backtrace?

Include the backtrace:

 Saving configuration

 
 by dsfitzpat on: Nov 4 2009
 
Score 50%

First of all, great job on this panel, I like it a lot!
I noticed (as one or two other people mentioned I think) that my config settings weren't being saved - the panel returned to the default every time I logged in.
I checked the file .kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc and found my setting there, but noticed that the old settings were there too - instead of over-writing, it makes a new configuration entry with a different number every time the config is changed - and it loads the oldest of these on login. Deleting the old entries seems to have fixed the problem - I now get my custom settings.

Two additional themes are inside source package in themes/ directory.
It uses standard Plasma background format so you can try to use every SVG compatible with this specification:

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.
