sorry man , but it's on 11.04 that you need to upgrade kde not in 11.10.

and 11.04 by default install 4.6 so libplasma is still libplasma2 so you can't install takeoff i guess i have read your readme file and it should be something like that :D

Do you think that implements something like meego task manager in this plasmoid, it's a bad idea?

Like that:

I think that is a cool idea... but I think that this feature is out of the objetive of Takeoff. The "exposé" effect incorpores something like this and I think that this is their place.

Anyway, thank you very much for the idea!!

Great work, love it!

My wishlist:
- Option to only show the icons (without text).
- Resizability (as metioned by others).

I really like this app. However, I use Compiz and would like to be able to emulate the menu function I use in xfce, whereby I have the command to invoke the menu keyed to the left corner of my screen.

To do that I'd need to know what commandline string I can issue to invoke takeoff?

If none exist, consider this a feature request! Great app. :)

I never have used this compiz feature, it allows to assign a shortcut?? In this case, right click in Takeoff and assing to it a shortcut.

it allows you to invoke any command by simply moving the mouse into that corner of the screen (via the Commands plugin). For example, in xfce, I have keyed the top left corner to invoke xfce4-popup-applicationsmenu, so the menu opens without having to mouseclick anything, a bit like Unity in Ubuntu.

Problem is, I need to key it to an actual command that I could type in a terminal. A shortcut made in KDE won't do.

You can emulate a shortcut with the xsendkeys program, for example, if the Takeoff shortcut is Alt+F1 try this:

$ xsendkeys "Alt_L+F1"

Hi!

This is my FIRST Debian package, I hope nothing went wrong and you can use it, too. Works well here.

I have two advice:
1. Touch screen and keyboard friendly.
2. this should be think as a bug, when panel is not set with "always show", the popup position should cover the panel, otherwise the current lmplementation will have some part of popup window outside the screen.

Hi!

1 - You can use Touchégg (https://code.google.com/p/touchegg/) to make it touch friendly, I'm using it just right now, and I open Takeoff making a pinch with five fingers.
About keyboard, I'm adding this feature now, along with search support.

2 - I haven't got this problem... When takeoff if visible my panel is visible all the time...

hi, thank you for your reply!
as for #2, I think you misunderstood my problem. (sorry for my english).

Check this screenshot,
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/6007747109/

The panel is set to "windows behind panel", and at the bottom of the screen, the pager is off the screen.

Hello @csslayer

Please, try to reduce the separation between icons (and/or the icon size). Probably this will solve the problems.

Report

csslayer

Hi,
actually I think the problem is caused by you set the popup size to the "maximized windows size", but popup along the panel. I think the reasonable solution is you found the panel height and set the small size, or place the panel in a correct place.
