it there a way to show windows only on current workspace...? i think this is some compiz settings or somethink... i want something from this sort without applets long time before i see windows 7... i just want to disable labels :D but i've been trying with dockbarx with iconbox in xfce and all applets show windows from all workspaces :( i think compiz tells them that there is only 1 desktop and compiz just add viewports... if not wrong.

Nice work. Just a suggestion: I've changed the relief style of the buttons to "none", looks and fits much better. http://img504.imageshack.us/img504/9452/taskdockreliefnone.png is a scrot of it.

It's great (I can now make my ubuntu look like win7 :) )

But I miss 2 features:
1. Switching windows using mouse wheel
2. Showing windows only from one desktop

It would be nice to have notifications on app the icons....so we can replace traycon with one more-logical system!

I'm on Ubuntu 8.10 and the dependencies of this package are not present...

fra@fra-notebook:~/Scrivania/taskdock-0.0.1$ sudo apt-get install libpanel
libpanel-applet2 libpanel-applet2-doc libpanelappletmm-2.6-1
libpanel-applet2-0 libpanel-applet2-ruby libpanelappletmm-2.6-1c2
libpanel-applet2-dev libpanel-applet2-ruby1.8 libpanelappletmm-2.6-dev
fra@fra-notebook:~/Scrivania/taskdock-0.0.1$ sudo apt-get install libwnck
libwnck-1 libwnck2.20-cil libwnck-dev

Too many T's in libpanelappletmm-2.6-1c2 and libpanelappletmm-2.6-dev. And you can do this all on one line...

sudo apt-get -y --force-yes install libpanelappletmm-2.6-1c2 libpanelappletmm-2.6-dev libwnck22 libwnck-dev libwnck-common

The "-y --force-yes" is for all the dependencies... There are a ton if you don't already have a lot of -dev packages installed.

Ok at the end I understand what to install, give this from terminal:

Quote:sudo apt-get install libpanel-applet2-dev libpanel-applet2-0 libwnck-dev libwnck-common

then compile with
Quote:make
sudo make install
in the directory of the sources...

Hi, the size of icons is the bigger when you have a size panel of 37, well this for my cfg.

yes, when i set 37 for the panel icons are bigger. My panel is 32, so it doesn't deals much space...So is not possible to make they bigger with a 32 panel?

I think that is not possible, the size in the screenshoot is 37, i same like you i will try to lower size, but in 36 the icons still small.
