Kate simple tabbar plugin

Every time I open kate tabbar is shown in the bottom, but in plugin's configuration tabbar position is 'Top'.
After clicking 'OK' on configuration window (without any change) tabbar goes to 'Top', but after kate's restart situation repeats.

When I try to compile (using the following steps):

mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde-config --prefix` ..
make

I get the following error:

For kubuntu:
apt-get install apt-file
apt-file search kate/pluginconfigpageinterface.h

in my case:
kdesdk-dev: /usr/include/kate/pluginconfigpageinterface.h

apt-get install kdesdk-dev

Hi, I really like this plugin and I also created a package for archlinux, but there's a problem that keeps me from using it at the moment.

Even if I configured it to be positioned at the top, it always starts at the bottom when restarting kate. If I go to the plugin config dialog, I find that it is already configured to be at the top, then I click OK without changing anything and the tabs go to the top.

This plugin breaks the KDE HIG doctrine that KDE applications should not have MDI interfaces. Please respect the HIG doctrines when writing KDE plugins. Thanks.

Please excuse any inconvenience, but
Does konsole, konqueror or even kdevelop break KDE HIG doctrine ?

But you can installing it with cmake


mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/your_kde_installation_dir ../

While I wouldn't use this as I usually have so many files open in Kate tabs become unusuable for me (compared to Kates document list) I voted Good as I like this. However I do have one suggestion, the tab bar should be coming away from the file editor not the toolbar (since your tabbing the files not the toolbars ;-) ) in the same way they come away from the web pages in konqueror.

Other than that, good work.

Hi, thanks for you comment.

The tabbar position and shape can be configured.

Anyway, i don't know why but like the tabs comming from the toolbar (something like safari http://images.apple.com/euro/safari/images/tabs20070611.png)

Oh ok, well if it is configurable then thats fine, good job! Although I would recommend that by default it conforms to the KDE style of coming from the file not the tool bar, when i first saw it my first thought was "wow some people more really use tool bars a lot" till I suddenly realised I was being an idiot :-P

Yes, you are right :) i must put the normal tabs as default style (this was my first intention btw, but i must forget)
