CHANGELOG

Last changelog:

update to v0.8.3 24 days ago

* FIX: support multi-screen plasmoids that use plasmoid.screenGeometry such as plasma pager, plasma taskmanagers etc. Latte did not update the plasmoid.screenGeometry value properly in previous versions
* FIX: do not crash when moving launchers that are being synced between multiple docks/panels
* FIX: make sure that launchers order between synced docks/panels is always the current one after the user has ended its dragging
* 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

Why isn't Latte included with KDE by default?

Hi, I just installed Plasma 5.12 on my Kubuntu system. Now my Latte Dock soes not start any more because of a segmentation fault. Unfortunately, the new latte plasmoid does not provide by far the features the app does. Any solution or workaround except for using the plasmoid?

Hi. I had a problem running Latte on left screen on KDE Neon. The hidden dock would not reappear unless changing screens or activities. For anyone experiencing the same problem, the fix that worked for me was to turn off: "Behave as normal dock window" in Settings/Tweaks. All good now.

You dont have to disable the "Behave as normal dock window" option. You can just disable all touch gestures from plasma systemsettings, more info at: https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/wiki/F.A.Q.#q-my-left-dock-behaves-strangely-from-plasma-510-and-beyond-can-i-fix-this

Didn't work. I looked at the plasma systemsettings as suggested and found that none of the touchscreen swipe settings was in use. Anyway I am quite satisfied. The dock works fine with "Behave as normal dock window" off

Hello,
I have installed and used Latte v. 0.6.2 for OS Leap 42.3, downloaded from the repositories of audoban. It seems to work fine but the application has a bug which disables the key shortcut FN+Play/Pause. This is annoying because it does not work for any multimedia application!
I go back to Plank because it does not show this behavior.
I have KDE Plasma 5.8.

I love the latte dock, but it could use with an update that includes the option for "windows go over". As a temporary solution, I used the widget that is supposed to be "just for testing". I understand that many people want their windows to extend to the whole of their monitor. I think it would get more use if it had this feature as an option.

Thanks for your work on this, really nice Dock. I am running it on Fedora 25. I had to install a LOT of dependancies before I could even compile the dock, but got there eventually after a bit of searching. I saw a comment/issue (203 i think) on github about the issue with where it is putting the QML folder on Fedora, which is a problem I had to begin with, but I resolved it by symlinking the folder into the location you mentioned. (e.g. instead of /usr/lib64/qml/org/kde/latte I created a symlink in /usr/lib64/qt5/qml/org/kde to point to the location of the latte folder which has resolved the problem for me). I'm not sure why latte dock compiles this way in Fedora, because all other qt5 apps using these qml files store them in the right place. The only issue I have now is that I can't seem to get it to autostart without manually configuring it in KDE settings, but that's minor because I have manually configured it now. Thanks again and keep up the good work

Are you planning to make a 3D version or customizeable backgrounds? So it would be independent from the plasma theme. Plus, a idea: make a launchpad like launcher, like the osx has. But simple, without any additions like categories etc. I like your work! :)

in next version you will be able to enable/disable the panel shadows, change the transparency of the panel background and alter the widgets shadows(color, size, transparency)

there are no plans for supporting independent themes or 3D version, only what we get from the plasma theme

there are many launchpad like launchers that you can find as widgets to add them in Latte such as:
https://store.kde.org/p/1169537/
or from default plasma: fullscreen app launcher

So, I love the work that has been put into this thus far, but after playing with it a bit I'm going to give my feedback:

1. Is there a way to maximize the panel without using justified mode or spacers?
Bit of an example here. I use the Active Window Control plasmoid to allow me to doubleclick on any empty space on my top panel between the global menu and the system tray. I use the "Fill Width" setting in AWC to achieve that. I could use a fixed with, but then it creates an issue where applications with a lot of menus cause the applets in my Latte panel to shrink, or if it's an application with no menu or a small menu exported, I think have empty space where I can't click.

2. A feature request. Can there be more finite control over the size of the plasmoids/dock size? When I'm trying to set my top panel for the global menu, 24px just seems too small and 32px too big.

3. This is a huge praise. Latte Dock works amazingly well on multiple monitors. Any issues that I had with the stock Plasma panel autohiding/not going under a window correctly on a panel adjacent to another display doesn't exist in Latte Dock.
