Description:

This is a modified taskbar applet for kicker to make it work with compiz.

The work is inspired by kicker-compiz pager (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=46021)

Please note: currently you can't change "Show windows from all desktops" settings while beryl is running, so uncheck it before or uncheck in manually in
.kde/share/config/ktaskbarrc

Enjoy!

Hi,
I found a problem with kde 3.5.10. As soon as you try to insert taskbat-compiz applet into the kicker, it crashes.
I hope you can correct this bug, because I think a lot of people will continue to use kde 3.x for long time.

Thanks very much.

Now you see how the KDE4 developers want us to use KDE4 instead of KDE3 and compiz. That's all part of the plan!

Oh, maybe I was too honest now. Please don't disable my account due to this post. Please!

I have tested KDE4.1 for one week now and I must say: it's usable. You only need to replace the Plasma Taskbar with your old kicker. Then you will not see major disadvantages.

What distro/release is this on? We've seen several reports of this on Kubuntu Hardy with 3.5.10.

I'm using openSUSE 10.3 with KDE 3.5.10. Same this with the other taskbar-compiz applet (I believe the this and the other one are the same?)

I have done some debugging but I don't code in QT or KDE. I have posted my responses in the comments for the other taskbar-compiz here: http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php/taskbar-compiz+for+kde+3.5.7+with+colors?content=61169

That's the pertinent parts; I edited out the previous successful portions.

I"m running KDE 3.5.9, compiz 0.7.6. Any clue what is happening?

Seems like this taskbar does not obey the custom colors, when they are set. At least I didn't manage to have taskbar-compiz display them for me.

Just got this running on Compiz and wicked it is. Thanks.

However there is one little bug. Have filed it here http://bugs.opencompositing.org/show_bug.cgi?id=157 as I'm not sure where it should be ?

There's also a startup issue which needs an elegant resolution.

Doesn't seem to work anymore...
I'm using KDE 3.5.6 and beryl 0.2.1

Like the original KDE-applet, your applet also shows all applications from all viewports... Any advice? Thanks in advance!

Ah, my bad, I had to edit

~/.kde/share/config/ktaskbarrc

and add:

[General]
ShowAllWindows=false


Now everything works fine. Thanks for this applet!!!

This has been added to the Gentoo xeffects overlay (http://www.gentoo-xeffects.org) for anyone using Gentoo and is interesting in test driving.

I still have one or two ebuild issues to work out. See the forum post for more info: http://forums.gentoo-xeffects.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=377

Great Product!!! I do have one request though. I have two monitors and when I drag a window to the second monitor it doesn't show up anymore.

Dual monitor support would be great!!!
Keep up the good work.
