Description:

This is a geOShell style taskbar for superkaramba version >= 0.26.

It grows as you open more windows, though it only displays one icon per group of application windows.

If it can't figure out a suitable icon to use it will use a generic X icon.

Left-clicking the icons will cycle through all the open windows for that application.

Middle-clicking will popup a menu with a list of tasks in that task group to choose from, as well as a "Minimize all" option.

Notes:
(1) Make sure you edit the parameters at the beginning of the gTaskBar.py file.
(2) It's not great at figuring out the right icon to use, but it should get the right icon for most native KDE applications. If you're getting only X's, you need to change the "iconRoot" parameter, and maybe the "iconSize" parameter. Or maybe you need to download a better icon set ;-P

Credits:
The x.png files included in this theme are copyright Carles Carbonell Bernado -- they're borrowed from his excellent "Noia KDE 0.95" icon set.

(despite the poor choice of name, this is NOT a GNOME app... the "g" is supposed to stand for geoshell)

Actually, the tool tips do work -- you just need to click somewhere on the widget background to give the widget focus before they'll show up...

Hi, this theme looks pretty good. I tried it but it sometimes makes superkaramba crash. Another thing is that it displays only X icons. I tried to change the script but i don't find any default.kde file on my computer so it can't display applications' icons.

Replace iconRoot by the path to an icon theme you've downloaded and installed.

If you installed the icon theme globally, it should appear somewhere like

/opt/kde/share/icons/name_of_icon_theme

or

/usr/share/icons/name_of_icon_theme

If you've installed the icon theme to just your account it should appear in

~/.kde/share/icons/name_of_icon_theme

You want to point iconRoot to a directory which contains an installed icon theme, not a file.

As for superkaramba crashing, try launching superkaramba and this theme from the command line and see if it gives any error messages before it crashes.... I haven't had it crash on me yet since I finished development yesterday. What version of superkaramba are you using?
