I get the next error:

Thanks for the information.

denisfalqueto commented on 2016-01-26 18:56

Sorry for the delay... I'm not the author of the software, but in the project page, he states that he may work on it "in first quarter of 2016". If there is any update, I'll try my best to package it. I don't use it anymore, though. I'm using Icon Task Manager now.

SanskritFritz commented on 2016-01-08 21:03

Can I expect this to work in plasma 5?

denisfalqueto commented on 2013-03-08 02:18

Updated. Thanks beta990 for the heads up!

denisfalqueto commented on 2013-03-07 15:23

I'll update this package when I get home. My current computer doesn't have the new packages for qt4 and qt.

francoism commented on 2013-03-07 15:05

Needed to add: -DQT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE=/usr/lib/qt4/bin/qmake to as cmake fla to build correctly.

denisfalqueto commented on 2012-09-25 14:13

@crobe2: well, I don't know if you're really asking for a rename, but anyway it wouldn't be possible, for package names don't allow spaces. Also, there's a name policy for plasma addon packages, as refered by the very comment before yours.

crobe2 commented on 2012-09-25 12:57

Just searched for this and had some problems finding it, because its called Fancy Tasks on .

ilpianista commented on 2012-07-16 10:16

please rename this package following the KDE package guidelines,


denisfalqueto commented on 2012-06-11 01:52

Updated to 1.1.2. Thanks Emdek for the heads-up!

denisfalqueto commented on 2012-06-01 14:07

Updated to 1.1.1. Thanks Emdek for the head-up!

denisfalqueto commented on 2012-03-21 17:56

Hmm, I see. In Arch, that library is provided by kdebase-workspace, which is already a dependency for fancytasks-plasmoid. So, I think the new version is working fine. Thanks for the heads up.

Emdek commented on 2012-03-21 17:28

@denisfalqueto, that depends on distro conventions, I guess, for example in Kubuntu it is libprocesscore4abi1 package but adding it to dependencies ends up with message warning about unresolvable dependencies (the same with libtaskmanager4abi3) when trying to install package generated using CPack... :-D
To be exact, this a lib from current kde-workspace git module (kdebase-workspace back then when SVN was used), path libs/ksysguard/processcore/, it is required to link against it, but since libtaskmanager uses it too it must be always available. It uses it even for the same purpose, but that lib doesn't expose required property (command) and won't do that in future (developers are against that...). For next series (1.2) I'll hopefully finish process of dropping that lib (I'm sick of redoing internals each major KDE release, it changes API and ABI nearly each one...) and will move to use of data engine and resurrect my replacement lib from 2010 (not published yet, it was intended as proof of concept for my GSoC proposal) as they said if it will have proper unit tests etc. then it could eventually replace libtaskmanager. ;-)

denisfalqueto commented on 2012-03-21 16:37

Hi, Emdek! It's always a pleasure talking to you, as is to maintain this package :)

But I can't find the processcore package in any repositories or in AUR. Even google didn't show anything useful. namcap (a tool to help find missing dependencies in packages) also didn't show nothing. Are you sure about that dependency? (asking about that for the developer is silly, but I must do it :))

Emdek commented on 2012-03-21 10:37

@denisfalqueto, there is new dependency, processcore (Kubuntu packages can't have it as dependency, weird...).
BTW, thanks for maintaining package. :-)
And if you have feature requests / suggestions then let me know, I want to restore "former glory" (generic plans are described in comments sections of kde-apps / look and in public TODO) as this is longest developed and still active (maybe except one year of stagnation...) alternative task manager for Plasma. ;-)

denisfalqueto commented on 2012-03-02 11:15

Sometimes it's necessary to run kbuildsycoca4 (strangest name ever...). I'm not using this polasmoid anymore (icontasks ftw), but I've tested it now and it is working as expected. Hope that helps.

Anonymous comment on 2012-03-02 05:07

Thank you but, I don't see the plasmoid after installing and looking for it...

denisfalqueto commented on 2012-02-27 16:11

I've updated the package, but can't test it right now (I'm at my job). I'll test it as soon as I get home and correct it if there's a need. Thanks for the heads up!

ManU commented on 2012-01-28 20:12

updated PKGBUILD for kde 4.8:

# Contributor: marcotangaro <>
# Contributor: Denis Falqueto <>

pkgdesc="Plasmoid Binary"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
makedepends=('cmake' 'automoc4' 'kdebase-lib')

build() {
cd "$srcdir/fancytasks-${pkgver}-4.8"
[[ -d build ]] && rm -fR build
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`

package() {
cd "$srcdir/fancytasks-${pkgver}-4.8/build"
make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

denisfalqueto commented on 2011-12-19 16:50

Hmm, I think you're right. Here in my job, my default locale is en_US but at home I use pt_BR. Probably that's the reason. :)

Anonymous comment on 2011-12-19 16:42

Ok Im stupid... It works but it is translated and its name in polish is "Eleganckie Zadania". But now Im not sure if it was there all the time or maybe because I installed it manually. Nevermind

denisfalqueto commented on 2011-12-19 16:08

@fatino: I'm having this problem also in my personal machine (which I reinstalled i686 just a couple of weeks ago). In my work box (x86_64) it's working fine. I'll investigate it further, but I'm not using this plasmoid anymore. If anyone wants to maintain it, feel free to ask and I'll hand off it.

Anonymous comment on 2011-12-18 18:06

It doesnt show up in my plasmoid list

denisfalqueto commented on 2011-08-05 14:22

Package updated. Thanks CyberConan for the heads up!

CyberConan commented on 2011-08-05 13:20

Flagged as out of date because there is new author version compatible with kde 4.7.

Anonymous comment on 2011-07-25 06:57

sorry i add it from the icon plasma, i try to add with right click and everything works fine :D

Anonymous comment on 2011-07-25 06:56

hi guys can anybody help me? :D when i add a elegant panel only show me a little icon with configure options but not show any dock or applications, and when i try to move to botton i cant :S, the panel only stay in the middle of te screen u.u

petelewis commented on 2011-01-24 17:24

Yes indeed, you're right. I've no idea why I didn't have it installed on my system then... will investigate.

denisfalqueto commented on 2011-01-24 12:31

@petelewis: I don't think so. xextproto is an indirect dependency, met by libext -> libxv -> xorg-xvinfo -> xorg-utils -> kdebase-workspace -> fancytasks-plasmoid.

petelewis commented on 2011-01-24 12:18

Hmmm... seems this needs the package xextproto as (at least) a build dep.

hi, I 've not updated it because the fancytask panel does not work on my kde-box...
But actually I'm not using it so I'll pass it tu you
thanks a lot ;)

denisfalqueto commented on 2010-09-28 02:39

Hi, marcotangaro. Would you like to pass maintainership to me? I use it and like it very much. There's a new version that just needs a version bump. Thanks.

Anonymous comment on 2010-05-06 20:39

sorry, but I'm not using it...
you can post at the kdelook page

fettouhi commented on 2010-05-03 18:46

Does facytasks also crash for you when you activate "show title labels", e.g. when you set it to mouse over?
