View Full Version : [kubuntu] netbook plasma desktop and running applications

March 20th, 2011, 10:56 PM
When i run the KDE 4.6.1 netbook plasma desktop, there's a icon in the right upper corner telling how many applications i've running. When I click it, the desktop zooms out and shows me the applications in a graphical way, wich is pretty nice....but...then i can not select an application to switch to and have to wait a certain time out to go back to the running program i had in the foreground allready.

When i change the settings of this icon to show it allways in a menu, it does work allright (but is less nice)..

Anyone knows how to fix it or is a bug?

Hm. Go into System Settings -> Desktop Effects -> All Effects and scroll down to Present Windows. Enter its settings and make sure the mouse buttons are mapped to what you expect them to be.

Hello Zorael,
Thanks for replying.

The left mouse button is set to activate the window and the right button for ending the effect. Sounds good to me.

For the Desktop settings the left button is set to end effect, so also sounds good to me.

Nothing happens when left clicking on a window (running application) or on the desktop between the window. I can only wait for a timeout ..

Any other suggestions?

So I'm the only one suffering this issue?
