taskbar-compiz is a modified taskbar applet for kicker to make it work with compiz.

The work is inspired by kicker-compiz pager (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=46021)

Please note: currently you can't change "Show windows from all desktops" settings while beryl is running, so uncheck it before or uncheck in manually in .kde/share/config/ktaskbarrc

Currently working:

- all standard taskbar features
- task button filtering by compiz viewport

Known buggy or can be improved:

- "Show windows from all desktop" options in taskbar settings are not shown when running under compiz
- task sorting by compiz viewport
- sometimes I can't minimize window by clicking on its button in taskbar

The code is based on the taskbar applet taken from kdebase-3.5.5.

To install the package, follow the generic instructions found in the INSTALL file. Generally, you will want to install it in your KDE directory, using:

./configure --prefix='kde-config --prefix'
make install

You will likely have to use superuser rights to execute the last 'make install'.

(Alternatively, you may choose to install in a different directory, using for example:

./configure --prefix=/opt/taskbar-compiz
make install

For this to work, you will need to tell KDE about the new prefix, by ensuring that KDEDIRS contains it, e.g. 'export KDEDIRS=/opt/taskbar-compiz:/usr' and then restart KDE.)

Once it is installed, use the kicker dialog to add a new applet, and the taskbar will appear in the list (Right-click on kicker, then "add an applet to the panel" -> "Taskbar - Compiz").
