Description:

TaskBar with groupping and group manipulation.

... Many thanks to Nik Skavinsky ...

##### Launchers #####
You can add new launcher by DnD or launch app and press "+" button (preferred) in popup of app.
Button with gears can be used to open new window of app.
Known restrictions:
- Unable to use launchers for GNUStep
- Unable to use launchers for OOo writer, calc, draw, etc
- Only apps from menu can be added
- Some applications written in script languages like python recognized not correctly (because their author forgot to setup name for application)

To pin/unpin launcher you need to open preferences dialog and set 'Attach/Detach' action for group

The X branch by Matias Särs
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Dockbar+Experimental?content=101604

Previews
You need to use compiz plugin KDE Compatibility and check 'support plasma previews'.
If you want live previews for minimized windows too, you can use KWin instead of compiz.
Watch demo video!

Default actions:
Window button:
left click:
- activate / minimize / unminimize

middle click:
- Close

right click:
- Lock/unlock

Group button:
left click:
- activate / minimize / unminimize group
(without locked windows)

middle click:
- close group of windows

right click:
- Compiz scale

Compiz
To use compiz effects you need to activate them in compiz settings manager first.

INSTALL:
- install python-gnome2-desktop
- copy dockbar folder to /usr/lib/
(/usr/lib/dockbar)
- copy theme files to share folder
(/usr/share/dockbar/themes)
- copy GNOME_DockBarApplet.server to /usr/lib/bonobo/servers
- add DockBar applet to panel
- make link:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/dockbar/dockbar.py /usr/bin/dockbar.py

TESTED on Ubuntu 10.04 with compiz and metacity

You can run it in window:
dockbar.py run-in-window

==== AWN applet ====
DockBar for Avant Window Navigator is a simple applet (wrapper) to use DockBar with AWN.
AWN effects are not available for DockBar applet.
Use it only on horizontal awn dock!

AWN applet may not work. Please wait for bug fix.

P.S. Sorry for bad English

I have just tried 0.24 test version, the new concept is great. However I find a minor bug, here is how it happens:

First, open an application, and press "+" button in popup, then close the application.
Second, open that application again and close then.
Third, press "-" button in popup of that application so its icon in dockbar area will disappear.
Finally, open that application again, and its icon won't show up in dockbar area anymore.

Also, another suggestion, to possible add a function to change the icon of launch application.

Hi aleksey

First thx alot for this awesome applet, its really great and actually one of the reasons allowing me to move to gnome :)!

i have a few suggestions (not requests!.. :)) that i think could benefit dockbar (is there a forum/irc or is this the correct place for requests?)

so i would love to see:

a)ability to change the icons to user defined ones?
b)the option NOT to group similar windows together
c)have the pop-up with the add etc button more refined and define how quick it disappears (sometimes it stays to long IMHO)

thanks again

Zeltak

Thanks for your comment.

a) It is already possible but not obvious.
If you really want to change icon for some app you need to change icon in gnome menu and restart dockbar ('killall dockbar.py' in terminal).
More clear way to do that may be a feature in next releases.
b) Please give an example. Or you want it for all apps?
c) Themeable popup is planned to next releases.

 no grouping

 
 by zeltak on: Nov 15 2009
 
Score 50%

Hi again

regarding your question, yeah i would like an option to define which programs do not group if possible.

that is for example define that the "terminal" program each has its own icon in the dockbar while "firefox" windows/instances are all grouped like they are right now.

if thats technically impossible/hard i would also love an option to turn off grouping all together that is each instance of any program will have its own icon

thx

 problems on fc12

Tried to run 24.1 on fc12

README says "install python-gnome2-desktop". There is gnome-python2-gnomedesktop and gnome-python2-desktop in fc12. I already had both installed.

instead of copying the file and folders I made symlinks

when I try to add I get:

The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_DockBarApplet"
Delete / Don't Delete

Looking forward to getting it to run as it looks very cool.

Forgot to put dockbar.py into /usr/bin (which I also did as a symlink).

Works fine now, sorry for the noise.

PS You forgot to add that step to the README
