Description:

This is a modified pager applet for kicker to make it work with
compiz. More generally, it is intended to work with window managers that use
the concept of "large desktops" instead of "multiple virtual desktops" as kwin
does exclusively.

Technically, it is a matter of respecting window managers standards as defined
by EWMH (http://standards.freedesktop.org/wm-spec/wm-spec-1.4.html), using the
facilities already provided by KDE.

The code is based on the minipager applet taken from kdebase-3.5.4.

To install the package, follow the generic instructions found in the INSTALL and README files.Once it is installed, use the kicker dialog to add a new applet, and the pager
will appear in the list.

The code should soon be hosted somewhere in the KDE svn, hopefully to be merged in one of the next releases.

Enjoy !

Is there a way to tweak compiz so that I would be able to specify a desktop for a window (yes, i'm really missing kwin too :) )

I've built it for amd64 (just using checkinstall), so if you want I can send it to you to put in your rep. I can't serve a repository from my server, unfortunately...

Sorry for posting many times the same thing... It could appear as spam, but it isn't... That is due to Firefox which crashed twice, and I've SessionSaver extension that restored this page with old postdata... So that's why there are many equal comments by me

Please remove these comments...

Sorry again!

that *bright halo" under the active window, maybe coupled with dark halo under the unfcused ones, is perhaps the most useful and beautiful effect I've seen in an UI *ever*

I've played two days ago with compiz and KDE and I realized this problem. You have solved my kicker problem.
