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:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5i2S1xCKPk
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wj4W6cqycl8
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfqtnncLNcQ

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.

 Add The Seperating Line?

In your screenshots, you have a dashed line seperating the launchers/ tasks with the clock. How do I add this dashed line into my dock? I want to separate the launchers and the tasks.

Thanks.

This Panel Spacer applet with style from Sabre-Toothed Tiger Plasma theme.
I'm planning to add support for adding spacer between tasks and launchers or maybe even possibility to add more spacers and manage them by drag and drop (or using editor that would behave like tool bar editor, easier to do and more reliable).
But now I have exams and don't have too much time. :-/

 KDE 4.3 Beta 2 Bug...

I gave this a good vote because it can be used as a launcher even though I cannot use it in KDE 4.3 beta 2. I keep getting plasma crash. This one happened after checking the option "Only Show Launchers"

Thanks for report. :-)
This could be already fixed on my hard disc, I'll post update when I'll finish exams and fix some small issues with code, probably at beginning of July.

Launchers shouldn't be removed after restart, they are stored like other configuration in Plasma settings, and sometimes happens that Plasma forgets some changes (for example still shows removed applets) etc.

When I try to compile Fancy Tasks for KDE 4.3 RC, I receive this compiler errors:

http://pastebin.com/d621c7016

After some investigations I found out, that the Typedef "AbstractItemPtr" is not anymore part of taskmanager.
See also: http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdebase/workspace/libs/taskmanager/abstractgroupableitem.h?r1=898322&r2=985920

I'm not a coder, so I can not solve this issue.... :(

With the KDE 4.3 RC (installed from Arch Linux' kde-unstable repo), an additional square background is displayed between the dock and application icons:

I can't reproduce this.
It looks like something wrong with theme file, maybe you have installed also previous version before? Starting from v0.9 applet uses SVGZ instead SVG and maybe old file causes problems...

I'm not sure, here is the list of files it installed:

/usr/share/apps/desktoptheme/default/widgets/fancytasks.svgz
/usr/share/kde4/services/plasma-applet-fancytasks.desktop

Also, what should the md5sum be? Maybe the tarball became corrupted.

Then again, it may be the version of Plasma I'm running, it seems to be pretty unstable (such as locking up whenever I try to add certain plasmoids).

Anyone got a .deb, or know of a PPA, for 64-bit Jaunty?

The normal PPAs I go to for Plasmoids don't seem to be up to date (stuck at 0.8.1, but hopefully, now that I've asked, they will suddenly update).

New Kubuntu packages are prepared only for Karmic, I think, probably because of dependency on KDE 4.3 (needed because of small but incompatible changes in libtaskmanager)...

If users are interested, I can try to create patch for KDE 4.2, but I'll need someone to test it.

I'm using 4.3 on Jaunty. Looks like samrog131 just updated the PPA so I guess that resolves it.

Looks like that .deb is for Karmic only. I guess I still need one for 4.3 on Jaunty.

I think after 4.3.0 hits kubuntu backports Sam Gog would do package for jaunty.
Now there is package only for karmic.

 Nice upgrade

 
 by SteveMcQwark on: Jul 19 2009
 
Score 50%

Its a nice upgrade :)

One thing about the peek, you can prevent the tooltip from disappearing by grabbing its WId with parentWidget()->winId() and add that to the data[] in FancyTasksPreview::highlightWindow(). You could also grab it directly from the *parent parameter in the constructor.

And a bug - The following causes the icons to become irreparably large:

1) Create a horizontal panel
2) Add FancyTasks to it
3) Move the panel to the side of the screen

This does not happen if FancyTasks is added in a vertical panel initially, even after moving the panel several times.

Also, you can remove the flash this creates by setting the tooltip WId ( parentWidget()->winId() ) as the second argument for calls to XChangeProperty() and XDeleteProperty()

Why are you using a QVarLengthArray for data when you know the length of the array?

I'll investigate that soon, vertical panels needs some love now... Probably I'm working too much on new features and I don't have time to polish everything. :-D

QVarLengthArray was added by someone else in SVN. ;-)

Today I'll release version with initial support for showing job progress notifications. ;-)

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.
