Please add an option to change the background color for each panel.
If possible it would be interesting to use images as background.
Thank you

You know what a great thing to have would be?
Intercepting the docked applications so the don't show in the taskbar *and* the dock.
We can make them _not_ show in the bar by forcing "skip taskbar" in the window settings, but that makes them disappear from the dock too.

Latte supports Filter by launchers and shows tasks only from the assigned launchers in the dock, I don't know if that would help you

Well, I don't know if that would either ;·)
What I would like is: If I minimize a window for an application that _is_ in the dock, have it minimized just in the dock - not *both* the dock and the taskbar.
It's redundant, a waste of space, the taskbar minimized windows go under the dock, etc.

Now, I can tell KDE to not show them in the taskbar, but if I do that they don't show in the dock either.
Is there I way I can to that?

Μπράβο ψηφιδωτέ, εξαιρετική δουλειά και χαίρομαι που βλέπω Έλληνες στην εμπροσθοφυλακή της linux κοινότητας! Αγγλιστί στο εξής, για να καταλαβαίνουν και οι υπόλοιποι.

I have been using latte for some weeks now and I think it's worth taking a look at some issues I've experienced, all probably directly or indirectly related to latte:

1. After booting my PC, I always notice a black horizontal line flickering only once just above latte dock; it's not too important and it only happens when my mouse interacts with the dock for the first time, but it kind of breaks the immersion.

2. Whenever my PC returns from suspension, graphical issues are apparent all over the desktop, as described in this old thread I found (https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=111&t=143112&p=408101&hilit=latte+graphics+reset#p408101). Graphical bugs, KDE's desktop effects all disabled, latte dock's background and animations resetting and, if I recall correctly, locked in the settings. It forces me to restart just to get everything normal again and is certainly a very annoying issue.

3. Latte also seems to have interfered with KDE's notifications system. I removed the Plasma panel and only use latte dock because I like the cleaner look. Here's what happens: notifications appear differently, with a different layout, and they show up in the top right corner, whereas plasma displays them in the bottom right corner by default. What is more peculiar though is that the first notification that appears after booting, hangs Firefox for ~20 seconds. Just the first one though. This bug was reported on bugzilla by only one other user, also unfixed (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1424344). Enabling plasma's panel seems to fix the issue.

I hope my descriptions of the bugs I encountered are concrete enough. Let me know what you think.

thank u!

1. I havent found a way to solve this under X11, wayland does not appear such issue. From an old communication with kwin developers the fault was on X11 implementation
2. You are using NVidia proprietary driver. This affects all Plasma/Qt stack and it is not only Latte related. News say that it should be fixed with Qt 5.13+ Plasma 5.16
3. Plasma systray -> Right Click, Notifications -> Configure Notifications it gives you a way to set the notifications position

I'm using version 0.8.7 on an installation of KDE over an Ubuntu MATE 18.04, that only allows as far as Plasma 5.12 even with Kubuntu backports. Latte works great so far!

is not available any more

* fix: Show dock properly on first startup. New users where trying Latte but
it was reported that something broke during updates and on first startup

* fix previews that broke after kde frameworks 5.55 update
* fix shortcuts behavior for applets when using "Multiple" layouts

* FIX: support fillWidth/Height plasmoids better (such as plasma taskmanagers), now such applets can be added for all alignments including Left/Center/Right
* FIX: do not show the warning message "Your layout file is broken" when the statement is not valid. This check validates that the containments and applets ids are unique in a layout file but the way this was implemented in the past it was returning false results in some cases

9 It's terrific! I find the zoom animation a bit janky, though. The icons vibrate as the mouse is moved along the dock. Would it also be possible to configure the curve that determines the icon zoom from their distance to the pointer? I'd like a more accentuated zoom around the pointer.

- Definitely needs more work. Placing more than one plasmoid into a dock is very annoying. You have to re-open configuration of the dock every time you want to do it. Another pain in the neck is that it does not respect already inserted panels and icon grid. Therefore, placing it near icons or panels produces mess in your desktop.
