Hi,

You have to run autogen first.

./autogen --prefix=/usr
make
make install

Sorry, my mistake, it is using GTK 2.16 function and you have GTK 2.12. I will try to fix this in next relaese.

If you are using horizental panel, open talika.c file in src folder, and replace line 471 to 503 with:

static void
talika_orientation_changed (PanelApplet * applet, PanelAppletOrient orient,
gpointer data)
{
/* TalikaTaskList *tasklist = data;
GtkWidget *box = tasklist->box;

GtkOrientation new_orient;

switch (orient)
{
case PANEL_APPLET_ORIENT_LEFT:
case PANEL_APPLET_ORIENT_RIGHT:
new_orient = GTK_ORIENTATION_VERTICAL;
break;
case PANEL_APPLET_ORIENT_UP:
case PANEL_APPLET_ORIENT_DOWN:
new_orient = GTK_ORIENTATION_HORIZONTAL;
break;
}

tasklist->panel_orient = orient;
talika_tasklist_update_arrows (tasklist);

if (new_orient ==
gtk_orientable_get_orientation ((GtkOrientable *) box))
{
return;
}

gtk_orientable_set_orientation ((GtkOrientable *) box, new_orient);
return;*/
}

And it should compile fine.

All code have been fixed in svn. Now it will work on older versions too.
Try building from latest talika svn.

svn co https://talika.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/talika/trunk talika


and build like:


./autogen --prefix=/usr
make
make install


** cheers **

Nice work. I've been waiting for this to come :)
btw, gobonja's suggestion with closing windows by middle click would make it even better..

This applet is great.
I have a suggestion. Add closing opened windows with a middle click.

I like it without grouping same apps .
If you are going to add grouping , please make it a option .

Also if possible ,how would i go about themeing it , like dockbar x ?

Great little app and keep up great work !

it looks very nice, just one question, it's difficult to add the interactive previews feature?

KDE 4.4 will have this, lock this vid:

I think this would work similar to a interactive notification system.

Preview feature is nice. But first i am focusing on grouping of of multiple instance of same application.
I will add this feature for sure in future versions. Its a matter of free time available to me.
