Description:


A simple idea to minimize to an icon, this icon can be moved to another folder, placed in a storage device for later use. The application used in screenshoots is Firefox, but the idea can also be applied to most applications.


the icon may work as usual minimize / maximize, but also, saving the state of each application, to use later (even after turning off computer) or use on other computers that have applications with similar settings.

Are you talking about saving state of application (freezing application and saving dump to disk) or just icon for minimization/unminimization?

If first, it is impossible without complete rewriting of applications.

You need to rewrite all applications to support it.
Or use something like CryoPID (http://cryopid.berlios.de/), but it works only with simple console applications.
It is impossible now.

Actually I don't think that's necessary. If you've ever run an application from the terminal and suspended it (Ctrl+z) you'll notice it completely freeze, you can then bring it back with fg or bg (foreground and background respectively). Playing a video in Mplayer, suspending it and seeing the video freeze is a great example of this. The only issue I can think of is if the program has poor memory management or dependent hardware changing.

It is two different things.
Suspended process (after C Z) is still in memory. Sockets and files are still open and so on.
After restoring from file you need to:
- reopen sockets and files in same state as before freeze
- restore state in other processes. Eg state of X server...

Only freezing is good.

 And Save Session?

I remember there is a gnome feature that allows you to "save" the session with every running application and logout, to use it again at the next login, isn't there?
However, good idea ;)

 Application State Save

I like this idea, however, as some other people have already suggested it may be hard to implement.

If this were to actually get implemented the way I would do it is I would use drag and drop, every window has an icon right now at the top left corner, so if you drag that onto the Desktop or onto a panel that would be nice. Also if you could drag an drop an icon from the taskbar/dock onto the Desktop that would be nice as well.

 Similar to xfce

 
 by xbmd1 on: Dec 4 2009

Something similar is already in xfce: you can minimize the application to an icon, but I don't think it can be moved from the desktop or "stored" for later use, which I think is what would be hard to implement about this idea.

It's still a very nice feature though, as it allows one to organize minimized applications visually by arranging them on the desktop. It's one of the things I miss from xfce when I'm in gnome.

Anyway, it's a great idea that I'd love to see.
