Description:

I liked the idea of KSmoothDock, especially on my laptop, where space is sometimes at a premium, but I'm not convinced by the idea of replacing the entire panel. So I thought I'd have a go at producing something similar, that worked as part of Kicker.

v 0.1: First cut; only works with panel at top of screen.

v 0.2: I've fixed the clipping of the text and added a shaded hemisphere behind the icons to improve the clarity. Still only works at the top of the screen; I'll work on making it work in the other panel locations next.

v 0.3: I've now made it work it all panel positions and fixed an intermittent crash.

Is it similar to my SpinAndLaunch? ;) http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/SpinAndLaunch?content=22674

Hi pinkworm. I've just had a look at SpinAndLaunch. They're not doing the same thing; they're complimentary :-)

If I've understood correctly from my quick play with it, SpinAndLaunch is an alternative way of launching new instances of applications. TaskSwitch is a way of switching between already running instances.

I really like the translucent background you've got there: I think that might be something I ought to imitate - sincerest form of flattery and so forth!

Thanks ! ;)
Actually i haven't tried your software, just 've seen the circular thing with icons ;)
Some (Italian) guy emailed me the "liquid weather"-like background,
it is really nice.

I'm at work at the moment, but I'll try to have a look tonight.

The two of you should work together.
Don't make me put you both in the box!

Nice idea/app

I've built taskswitch and found...

1 doesn't work at the bottom.
2 fonts are crunched. I can't see the entire thing.

I'm looking forward to see this one develop. If you need help in testing, please visit #arklinux on freenode. I and the others would be very happy to help.

Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback. You know those "minor display glitches" I mentioned... you've found them! Hopefully I'll have time to fix them in the next few days.
