View Full Version : Taskbar with Icons only or Thumbnails? (for KDE)

Is there a program in KDE that let's you have something like a Taskbar except that it either has Icons only without the text (sorry I have no screenshots) or Thumbnails like
this (http://www.lynucs.org/index.php?screen_id=140407135640c8970070189&p=screen&PHPSESSID=23d1bb98abbb8515ef6ec3ca94b87eb1)

There's something like it in KDE called Tasbar v2 (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=31611) but it's still based on the regular taskbar applet and the thumbnails only pop up when you mouse over the window titles.

the 'icon box' applet for gnome (or xfce?) was awesome; i use it to replace my taskbar on my seedbox (xubuntu gutsy)...i'm also looking for a similar applet for kde, anyone help us please?

Yes, that is called a dock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dock_%28computing%29). Most well known from OS X. You have a couple different choices.

Avant Window Navigator (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avant_Window_Navigator) - Considered *the* Linux dock
Kiba Dock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiba-dock)
KXDocker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KXDocker)
