Thread: How Do You Disable the Application Text in the KDE TaskBar?

    Default How Do You Disable the Application Text in the KDE TaskBar?

    Hey guys, quick question for ya. How do you turn off the Labels in the TaskBar that are next to your Running Applications? You know, to basically make it look like Windows 7 where you only see the Icons.

    I'm running openSuse 11.3 with the KDE 4.4 desktop. Thanks in advance!

    So you want to get rid of the text, right? Try 'plasmoid-stasks' instead of the default application-switcher. It also offers an animated preview on mousehover and can be configured in many ways.

    I downloaded the src tarball for stasks and installed cmake. I followed the instructions in the INSTALL file but cmake continues to give me this error:

    guffaw-linux:/usr/share/stasks-0.5.1/applet/build # cmake ../ -DMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX='kde4-config --prefix'

    I added the cmake_minimum_required to the CMakeLists.txt located in the stasks directory, but I still get the error stating:
    ERROR: cmake/modules/FindKDE4Internal.cmake not found in
    /root/.kde4/share/apps;/usr/share/kde4/apps;/etc/kde4/share/apps
    Do you know what I can do to fix this problem?

    Looks like STasks doesn't work with KDE 4.4. Can any of you confirm this? Or tell me how I could get it working if it's possible? If not, I guess I'll have to try Smooth Tasks.

    You need some KDE4-devel packages, for example

    Code:
    ERROR: cmake/modules/FindKDE4Internal.cmake not found in
    /root/.kde4/share/apps;/usr/share/kde4/apps;/etc/kde4/share/apps
    is referring to 'libkde4-devel'.

    If you have Extra repo for KDE4.4 (i think its called stable). There is a plasmoid in it, which works like Win7 taskbar. One don't need to download and install from src.
    I am currently using it from KDE4.5 Factory Extra repo.
    I am on different machine ATM, so cant tell the exact name but it is some thing like plasmoid smooth tasks, some thing like that. You can search in YaST.

    Good luck!

    That's the plasmoid I was referring to - stasks = short for 'smooth tasks'. Maybe Sidewinder will find it in the 'KDE4.5-stable' repository (using KDE4.5 from Factory here as well), though that means he needs to upgrade KDE.
