Flexible Tasks

Plasma 4 Extensions

Description:

UPDATED for KDE 4.6

This is a fork of the tasks applet you know from KDE extended by some extra features. Version 0.2 is the same tasks applet as you have in KDE 4.6.2 + the "icon only"-mode.

The inital additional feature to the common task applet is to hide the text labels of applications - just displaying the icons. Cudos for the feature itself goes to the plasma-devs. Since KDE 4.5 the taskbar will hide the text-label if there is "not enough room". I just added an option to force this behaviour. The plasma-devs have rejected this as a configuration option for the vanilla tasks applet.

REQUIREMENTS (tested, might be lower):
- You need a working GNU Compiler toolchain.
- Cmake
- KDE >= 4.4 Headers files (kde development packages)
- QT >= 4.6 Header files (QT development packages)


HOW TO INSTALL

In the main directory run
- cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
- make
- make install/strip (as root or: sudo make install/strip )


The applet is named "Flexible Task Manager" in the applet list.

The problem was in plasma-tasks-flexible.desktop. The name tag is set to "Fancy Task Manager" so kde finds it like fancy tasks not flexible :D.

It's great, but i miss the "Only show tasks from current activity" option.

The option is there - at least in the current version.

Yeah - the problem is that your KDE headers are either missing or messed up. I cannot support foreign systems.

Jinidog said on previous page that your system probably lacks of kde-headers. Try to download them:)

Thanks for the update! Would it be possible to distribute it in either a tar.gz format or a tar.bz2 format? These tend to be the formats preferred by distributions for making packages.

You are probably missing the KDE development packages. They must be installed.

The 4.6 version of the regular taskbar supports launchers, albeit they're kind of hidden in the context menu. If you can get the option to add a launcher a little more prominent, and add some kind of JumpList (maybe Zeitgeist powered?) that might be good enough to make me switch back off of Windows 7. (Sorry, I haven't tried this yet, but it's certainly caught my interest.)

Hey!

First, thanks for this job. It's great, and does just what I want.

Just a question : I configure it to only show tasks of the current desktop, and icons only. But the first app I open is always shown with icons AND text. If I open a second one, they both change to icons only.
Is that normal? am I the only one in this situation? Did I miss something?

Anyway, it's not killing me, and this plasmoid is great. Keep it up!

It's also present in the default task manager plasmoid, but maybye you could fix it...

When you use custom sorting (draggable icons), you reorder them and they are as you wish. But when you launch any activator, it immediatelly jumps to the end, what results in launchers moving around constantly. If you reorder launchers, they should stay there I think.

Anyway, thanks for a great job :)

That's completly dependant on the distribution. They are often called development packages.

I've installed it, but it appears in the applet list as Fancy task applet like the 0.1 version, and it does non work exactly like 0.1
Have you updated the wrong version?
