This is a patched version of the stasks for KDE 4.3 RC1 that enables composited peeking when hovering over a preview.

Original stasks by mbaszczewski. Patched to use all panel space thanks to Zawertun. Patched for KDE 4.3 RC1 by BenderBendingRodriguez.

Install instructions are in the folder.
To build it you will need kdebase4-workspace-devel (names may vary for other distributions) I've successfully built it on Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope 9.04 with Qt 4.5.1


If you use sudo for root access, just run 'sudo ./install.sh' (no quotes) in the stasks-0.5.1-peek folder.

Yeah, that's just me forgetting to say Q_UNUSED(event). It doesn't have any effect, just prevents that warning :)

EDIT: The peek is working (just different from what you know from the original task manager).

This is what I did, I logged out and then back in. Opened up the KDE system settings>>Desktop>>All Effects>>Highlight Window>>Unchecked and applied setting. Then Rechecked "Highlight Window" and applied the setting.

Went down to my task bar on Stasks and went over my opened windows. I noticed that the peek wasn't working when I went over a window that was in the background. So I moved the mouse up over the window thumbnail and peek worked!

So the key is to move the mouse over the window thumbnail to get peek!

It is different from just moving the mouse over the taskbar of the window. But it works! Hope that helps!

Thanks SteveMcQwark for this patch!

You're welcome. Glad its working. If you have any problems with it, let me know. And yes, the design is aimed after the one for Windows 7, as is the rest of this plasmoid. The idea is that you get the peek hovering over the thumbnail. That makes it useful for having grouped tasks. And it means that you only get peek when you want it, and right away when you want it.
