This is a modified pager applet for kicker to make it work with
compiz. More generally, it is intended to work with window managers that use
the concept of "large desktops" instead of "multiple virtual desktops" as kwin
Technically, it is a matter of respecting window managers standards as defined
by EWMH (http://standards.freedesktop.org/wm-spec/wm-spec-1.4.html), using the
facilities already provided by KDE.
The code is based on the minipager applet taken from kdebase-3.5.4.
To install the package, follow the generic instructions found in the INSTALL and README files.Once it is installed, use the kicker dialog to add a new applet, and the pager
will appear in the list.
The code should soon be hosted somewhere in the KDE svn, hopefully to be merged in one of the next releases.
