If you’re using KDE and you like docks or rather the task bar icon-based here is a great option . Surely many of those who like this style have opted to use Smooth Tasks, which is a plasmoid excellent for this, but still lacked some of the functionality that they have such as bars and docks or Docky DockbarX.
That’s why this development is particularly interesting because it attempts to combine quicklist Unity, his progress bars, and supplements Docky , and who does CraigD through an update to its widget ” Icon Tasks “(0.9.2) where does this odd combination that looks very promising, because yes, it is a new development and as always, not without some flaws, as clarified in WebUpd8, which is where I find this.
contains most of the options already presented or DockbarX Smooth Tasks
contains most of the options already presented or DockbarX Smooth Tasks, as a preview window, grouping controls to close, full window context menu of KDE, and this adds are buttons to control media players, a list of recent files and windows switching support with the mouse wheel, in addition to those features of Unity and Docky.
To install, you can download the source code from KDE Apps and then compile, using a PPA for Kubuntu there (ppa: gnumdk / ppa), or from AUR for Arch Linux users. Also need to install python-dockmanager dockmanager and to have options and you will surely find Docky in the repositories of your distribution. And as always recommend it to new versions or developments, use with caution;)
Updated: As indicated ‘Migue Chan’ Tasks Icon is at version 0.9.2, not 0.5.0, it was fixed. We also have the good news that will be included in KDE 4.8. On the other hand said that what “use with caution” is not because it is not reliable as a package, it becomes clearer now, like how to install as indicated Mark .
