 A DockBarX alternative?

 by Dart00 on: Apr 23 2010
Score 50%

When I first started using Ubuntu I liked the "Window Selector" Applet for Window Management cause it reminded me of windows and felt comforting to my first few months to Linux.

Then I switched to DockBarX for its grouping ability and its Compiz Shift and Scale effects which really helped me move between windows!

But now im looking for a Window Manager that supports Window Previews and lets me open and close windows from the previous too like Windows 7 does and with all or simmler DockBarX features that iv grown to use and depend on.

I liked the look of this:


From the Vistar7 Project:


But for Gnome (Not KDE).

Today I found Talika and it looks pretty good...its not everything DockbarX is...or windows 7...but it has Windows Previews. I think this is a project that could have a HUGE amount of potential..and I mean HUGE! And I hope the project gets to that level because I would LOVE to use it but i cant really due to the Compiz Scale and Shifter features. :(

Juandejesuss and daenuprobst have some great ideas but heres a few more from me:

- Themeing Engine
- Integration with Compiz (Shifter and Scale) assigned to left, right or middle click instead of minimize/maximize...or maybe even a drop down selection.
- Adjustable Panel button widths
- "Stack" graphic to give a idea of how many windows are in that group.
- Drag and drop pinning
- Adjustment for thumbnail fade time (Like I would like the window preview to fade quickly as soon as my mouse leaves the window preview and not linger on my desktop for a second or 2)
- Transparent borders
- Close button to close programs from the window preview

And that's about all I can think of now. Just a lil brainstorming. I hope any of this helps.

Also if this project ever got close to the Windows 7 Window Manger equivalent level for Linux it could be featured in the Win2-7 Pack. :D

Oh...and also have it inherent the themes icon set instead of the default icon set for the button icons.

Thanks for your brainstrom. Few of those ideas are already in development. I am working to get rid of gtk buttons and use images to support themes.

Preview feature is very basic now. It would have been delayed until perfection but i want to share it will all of you even early versions. It is definatly going to be improved.

I will realese a minor bug fixed and updated translations version one or two days.

The next relaese (Big one, might have 90% of features you requested) is going to be after 2-3 months. I have very tight schedule and get less time to work in these days.

I took a look at the new DockBarX version .30 with the window previews...and I think you did a better job with your mock up. :)

 Toggle switch needed

 by TheSpoon on: May 2 2010
Score 50%

I think this is a fantastic applet and the most usable dock there is. However it's hardcoded to hide windows on other monitors, and this should be a user-configurable option.

The current svn version show windows from all monitors. Making it a user option is still pending.

If you want to include window from all monitors try installing from svn.

 Tabs in preview?

 by mariuslv on: May 4 2010
Score 50%

I can imagine this one being extremely difficult to implement, but it occurs to me that, since a lot of applications (web browsers, text editors, file managers etc.) use tabs, it would be very useful to see each tab being represented by its own preview window. In other words, even if I have only one instance of Nautilus or Epiphany-browser open, I would see several preview windows, each displaying the contents of the various open tabs. I have no idea how one might achieve this, so I'm just throwing this idea out there :-)

Anyway, love your applet, keep up the good work!

 Ubuntu PPA

Have you considered mantaining an ubuntu PPA?
This project shows a lot of promise :) specially for those not interested in full 3D docks.

I noticed that if you enlarge the panel to 46 pixels for example, the icons used are not really high resolution and dont look sharp. Will it be possible to address this?

I don't know about how to create a ppa and don't have much time. I really appreciate if someone could maintain a ppa for this project.

Icons will look sharp at 24,32,40,56 panel sizes.

Future versions will have sharp icons at any size.
