You have to consider that Parachute is not ready to replace the Present Windows effect, that has more features. So I think the fork with focus on Parachute is perhaps the best option, but that's just my opinion.

Well I guess that patch instruction was just a quick reply from Zren, not the real solution. I never thought that Parachute can, in its current state, replace Present Windows entirely. I meant for Zren to add Parachute as an option (if it is installed) along with the others (Present Windows, Desktop Grid, etc) already selectable in his plasmoid's settings.

Sometime in the future though... (I hope).

Thanks! Are you sure that it works with activities? When you switch to another activity the script shows only windows of the current activity?

It does not. It seemed like it does work for a moment.

Very useful! It would be awesome to have this included upstream. Is there a way to assign it to a desktop corner, like the default present windows tool?

I'm loving how this is looking so far.

It's about time KDE got a decent overview :) Keep up the good work! Parachute does exactly what I want and is near-perfect even though it's still only pre-release. I'm looking forward to no longer having to use CTRL+F8 and CTRL+F9 :)

This is a solid Kwin Script! This does exactly what it claims to and it looks great as well. There are some issues but its super early days so it is very impressive how well it works on such a short project lifespan. Please, keep it up! I am loving it so far!

9 excellent I prefer this over the default desktop overview. Only some animations aren't 100% smooth. I wold also like to see integrated krunner or start menu because now I have 3 shortcuts (start, krunner, parachute) and IMO it could easily be reduce to 2 or, with more effort, even to 1.

10 the best I've been waiting for this! I used KWinOverview for a while, then the dev didn't have time to improve it and it was kinda buggy, but seeing this made me really happy. This is the best thing I've seen for months. Kudos and keep up the development! I hope it gets into mainstream Plasma one day! If you want it, I could make a plasmod for it that opens it through DBus. Similar to Present Windows plasmoid. I can also make a symbolic icon which would look nice with Breeze.
