New version works fine for me. Great plasmoid!

Is it possible to add apps scrolling? Now we can scroll categories, but it would be nice to have the same for the list of apps (and jest j know there is pager at the bottom).

Hi! No for the moment and probably no in a near future. I'm focused in more "important" features, like drag&drop icons or search bar ;)

great plasmoid!

with the latest version is finally working (i'm on chakra too ;)

i have just one problem, in the all app view i see only half of the bottom tabs
i would suggest you in the upcoming version to add a resizable window option

anyway you did a very good work!

Hi! You can configure the size of the launchers of the separation to prevent this

Thank you!

I have to agree with robyshot, takeoff window is enormous, minimum size I can resize it is slightly over 1024x768. For a display setup exactly the same this is unacceptable.

The plasmoid fails on my system. I'm running the KDE desktop on a Ubuntu (not Kubuntu) 11.04 system. Takeoff is definitely installed from the ppa. I can see it from synaptic. I imagine I'm missing a dependency since it's not a full Kubuntu install. Not sure where to go from here.

Hello!

The porblem is solved with the 0.1.5 release, check the README file

Thanks for the quick reply. Hopefully the 1.5 version will become available via the PPA. Not sure I want to compile it myself just to test it out except maybe on a virtual machine.

Just upgraded to version 1.5 from the ppa. Thanks. Unfortunately I'm still having the same Component not found issue with takeoff. I even tried uninstalling, purging and reinstalling in case some config files were not being updated. I tried launching with plasmoidviewer as well as adding the widget. Same result in both cases.

If you are using Kubuntu 64bits you can try the deb that @Grindcore has make:
http://uploaded.to/file/uo5wi87d

Anyway, try to uninstall it completely and try again:

$ sudo rm /usr/lib/kde4/plasma_applet_takeoff.so
$ sudo rm /usr/share/kde4/services/plasma-applet-takeoff.desktop

This is BRILLIANT work! One missing feature to make this replace lancelot as launcher for me would be a filter textfield!

Yes, this is an important feature. I'll add it in the future (a Krunner part) and other features...

Thank you very much!

I'm able to successfully complete the install script, however, when I try to add the plasmoid to the desktop I get this error:

This object could not be created for the following reason:

Could not find requested component: takeoff

Any ideas? I also tried running the script with the modification of '/usr/lib64/kde4' as another user suggested but I got the exact same error.

The 0.1.5 release solves this problem ;)

Check the readme for compile (@pejakm now uses sudo make install)
