Icon Tasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by CraigD 642 comments


I like this launcher very much. I just wish it would be easier to distinguish open from non-open tasks. Both using indicators and the theme has poor visibility in task management when the icons are large relative to the bar size (90% icon size with oxygen theme).

I have no artistic/usabilty inspiration, but here are some suggestions:

+ A setting to grey-out the non-running icon tasks

+ Using alternate markers in the space between icons. I can only think of having the icons between brackets [O] or <O>, which surely would not look not very good.

Yes, adding gtk to the entry you mention does solve the issue.

I'll leve it set. Thank you. - Nov 16 2010
I am running 1.7.1 together with kde 4.5.3 in ubuntu 10.10.

I noticed today that apart from listing artefacts already posted here, there is a bug with VM consoles as shown by double clicking a VM icon in the list.

If the VM runs in text mode, the screen shown in the window is not cleared and everything you type is superimposed with what was there before.

If the VM runs X, everything seems to be correct.

Thanks for doing such great style :) - Nov 16 2010

Additional problems:

It seems that editing the calendar with the plasmoid on leads to excess CPU consumption in akonadi and lockup if plasma during that time... - Jul 20 2009

I have been waiting for this kind of thing since reading about plasma.

Just a couple of suggestions:

1. A little bit more styling to separate headings from text and dates.

2. The first time I added it to desktop it hanged plasma. Had to kill it and restart-it a couple of times before I noticed it was akonadi that was not started. A fail notice would have helped.

Using this theme I can get much more consistent look and feel on my desktop.

Perhaps the only minor feature I would wish is rounded menus. I don't even know if it is possible.

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by pajas 17 comments


Nice work. Let me just add the nextscript to those who want to avoid perl dependencies. I'm sure someone who understands dcop and shell better will find plenty of ways to improve it:


for i in `dcop konsole*` ; do
( dcop $i | grep nokuake ) && nk=$i

if [ "$nk" = "" ] ; then
konsole -name nokuake &

if [ `dcop $nk nokuake shown` = "true" ]; then
dcop $nk nokuake hide &
dcop $nk nokuake restore &
