Description:

This is a NEW SuperKaramba version of TuxBar!

Now it has full SMOOTH zoom just like in MacOS X! The bar even grows and the icons move almost exactly as in OS X. See the power of SuperKaramba :)

Please make sure you are using SuperKaramba 0.17f or HIGHER! Notice the "f"!
The newest version of SuperKaramba speeds things up A LOT.

PS: You can steal the tuxbar.py to add parametric zoom to your own themes.

hey, how can I adjust it so I can change the icons for the programs that I really use?
I have been looking for the file but the only thing I can find is the one with this;
[internal]
desktop=0
lockedPosition=true

[theme]
widgetHeight=150
widgetPosX=264
widgetPosY=866
widgetWidth=700


where is the file for the config?

It looks really really great !

But when you first mouse over the bar everything moves in an ugly way :(

If you put the only the big background bar and align the icon according to the zoomed size, it should appears really smotther no ?

Very nice theme, I'd like it a lot, but the icons are rendered so slow, that everything looks like slow motion. I've got a Pentium M machine which uses only 600MHz in speedstep mode.

It looks great, runs well, and Smooth Zoom is very similar to Mac OS. Very easy to customize also.

Just tried it out.
It looks really cool.
I remember there's been
an SK theme which could read its
apps/icons from a directory. Maybe
you could grab the code from there?
now one thing I really miss
is
1) the ability to support
app groups (1 level would be sufficient): If I create a subdirectory in that directory
with further icons I would like
to be able to access those icons
by clicking on the directory icon i.e.
the taskbar would be replaced with
the icons from the next level.
This way I could remove my whole
K-Menu with this and edit it
easily by using the file manager.
Finally (I'm just dreaming...)
it would be great if optionally
there would be a text while
hovering over an icon describing
how the application is called I'm
about to run.

Im trying to figure out what code I need to add/change to add new icons to this set. Ive already swapped out the original icons, and program commands. But now I wish to add more programs to the bar. It's probable simpler than Im making it, but if anyone can help, i'd appreciate it. Oh, I have already modified the png files to make room for more icons.

I was reading through the scripts, and it seems its a loop issue. let me know, thanks.

is there something special I need to do to make superkaramba use the alpha channels of the png images? Or do I have to run it in kde?

Please excuse the flameworthy re-posting.
I'll remember to read the entire forum before I post a question that's been asked and answered 3 times before.

Every time I load TuxBar, it is off-center. What are the values I would need to change to get it to load in the center of the screen where it should be?

OK. I looked at the comment that said "get the smooth version, not the normal one", so I clicked on Download, yet it still is going to the non-smooth version. Can someone tell me the URL of the smooth version so I can get it...
And another question: what do I need to do to add icons to the bar?

of it. :(

I know that there has to be something/somewhere where in the files where you specify the position...

Can anyone give me a hint?

Just change X= and Y= in tuxbar.theme

But if that is too much work, just right click and choose "Toggle locked position" and then you can drag it around to where ever you want it.

I told you in reply to your other message:

Just change the first line at the top of the .theme file where it says X= and Y= to whatever you want

or right click , unlock it, then drag it around that way.

Hey i wanna rewrite this to use SVG so it looks nicer, anyone have any idea where i would start looking?

Report

The next version of QT should support SVG files. Then SuperKaramba can easily support it, along with the rest of KDE.

Until then, you would have to write your own SVG library, incorporate it into SuperKaramba's C++ code, add calls to the embedded python interpreter, and then write a python script that uses it.

Waiting seems to be the better option :)

This new version works MUCH better. On my PIII 733, the icon zooming is much more responsive and uses WAY less cpu cycles. Great job on the speed improvement and keep it up. Except i'll still complain that when reloading the tuxbar using your superkaramba, karamba crashes. Once again, thanks for your contributions.

Hi,

First of I would want to thank ageitgey for a great patched version of karamba. It works very smooth over here ;)

I use a calendar theme with my ordinary karamba (0.17), but with superkaramba it crashes. The theme can be found in http://www.kdelook.org/content/show.php?content=5702 and the perl calendar script here: http://www.efd.lth.se/~d98hk/karamba/scripts/cal.pl

Thanks,
