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.

 panel settings forgotten

 
 by toadhall on: Sep 12 2010

Hi,

I'm on Arch 64 with state of the art vanilla KDE. Everything works fine, but on reboot my launchers in the panel are reset :(

I'm planning on a cheap workaround but would need to know where these settings are stored - could you advise?

It happens only when using panel?
There will be new panel implementation soon, check previous comments. ;-)
All settings should be stored in ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc.

Thanks for your prompt reply! Okay, so I rebooted and it wiped the panel settings once again.

I then copied the backed up file from the previous day over but no joy - it merely remembered to centre and auto hide it but all apps are gone.

Hm, any ideas as to where I might look?

Cheers!

I think that these settings might not be saved correctly, sometimes Plasma loaded wrong settings when I've tested hide options with multiple panels, after restart wrong panel was hidden or even location and alignment options were swapped...
Hopefully it will be working fine with new panel.
If you want I can attach current code but there are at least two bugs, custom background is not applied and other applets have wrong height (so it's basically mostly identical to default panel) or wait about one week (I'm really busy now, work and studies).

The hidden option paintReflections=false is not working for me.

I follow your steps and reload the sesion, but the reflection remains.

I'm in arch linux x86, with KDE 4.5

Thanks, and sorry for my English

I've checked that now and it works for me (KDE 4.5.68).
Are you sure that this setting is in correct group?
And can you check if that line is still there (if plasma-desktop was running during configuration change then it could be overwritten)?

please help
I use slackware 13.1 with native KDE 4.4.3 and compiz and cairo-dock. Before I start compiling I've installed this packages:
kdebase-workspace-4.4.3-i486-1.txz

you're should install the necessary devel files to compile it for example libxcomposite1-devel (or a package named like this) in order to have the /usr/include/X11/extensions/Xcomposite.h file

 plasma-desktop crash

when I added fancytasks, all was well, except that it added the bar in the middle of the screen. when I tried to change some options, my plasma-desktop crashed, and it crashes whenever I try to start it ever since.

Which versions of Qt and KDE?
If there is shown crash information dialog then go to backtrace information, copy backtrace, upload to some text paste service and post link in comment.

Thanks, but it lacks most of information because of lack of debug packages.
Could you install debug packages for fancytasks (at least) and for qtgui (but there will be probably only one bug for whole Qt...) and try to reproduce crash?

 panel settings forgotten #2

Hi,

it worked fine for a while but as I switched my box on today I once again started with the default set.

That brings to mind: is there any way to manipulate the default?

Cheers and keep up the good work :)

There is one possible way to permanently change defaults but it will require source modification and recompiling.
Most of applet (but not panel specific - like size, location etc.) settings are read in method configChanged() in applet/FancyTasksApplet.cpp.
I hope to finally find some time to finish that new panel but currently I'm forced to make money mode. ;-)

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
