KDE 4.5 quicklaunch does essentially does the minimum of what I NEED, 4.4 does not, so kubuntu needs to have KDE 4.5 ppa repositories


There are some people working on making recursive grouping, we apperantly cannot call it a container...

Maybe there are errors or extra complications when nesting panels? because I want to make two panels, in one panel. either horizontally or vertically. and then be able to continue to nest. so a 4x4 would be 3 panels. Shouldn't take much resources... and this would allow for custom shaped items too.


I have a taskbar setting like this: (kde3 and windows) Start F C C O V

Prog1 Firef Chrom VMware KDE Dolphin

x y z 12:24pm 7/15/2010

and in KDE4, it is K K K K KK K K K K K K

1 0 0000 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 0000 1


(you get the idea, hopefully, the Icon from Chromium is larger than all of the program starters in windows.. (or if I had the panel horizontal they would also be small)

Version 0.1

a 4x4 grid, where application launchers are specified explicity, with no drags or drops.

Version 1.0

accept drags and drops of application icons, add rows and columns automatically. (basically emulate the kde3 widget)
