{December 16, 2010}   quick poll

if you’ve got a spare minute, glance at your taskbar, and tell me:
-which applications do you have open?
-how many windows for each?
-how many of those windows have some sort of tabs inside them?

what I’ve got right now:
-4 konsole windows, 2 of which are on all activities, 3 of them tabbed
-1 kate window, with lots of documents open, that counts as tabbed
-3 konq windows, one of which has tabs
(this is just for one of my activities, though)

edit: okay okay, enough! ;) I’ll try and make some sense of this data tomorrow :)



David says:

– Akregator
– Dolphin (split view)
– Firefox, 2 Windows with 3 and 5 tabs
– Kile with 7 .tex files open
– kmail
– 2 konsole windows one tab each

all on my work activity



KDE SC 4.6-b2. No activities.
– 1 Amarok.
– 1 Chromium (18 tabs).
– 1 Kontact.
– 5 Okular.



Beat Wolf says:

Jonathan Thomas says:

No activities, but I’m using virtual desktops.

VD1: A Chromium window (3 tabs atm as I’ve just begun the day), Konversation. KMail is on this VD, though it’s currently sitting in its tray icon.

VD2: A Kate window with about a dozen files open for programmering.

I have a four-tabbed Konsole window on all desktops.



frogmaster says:

1 chrome with 12 tabs
1 yakuake with 5 tabs
1 quassel
1 kontact
1 amarok
1 kopete
1 dolphin
1 skype



Med says:

konsole, 4 tabs
kontact (kmail+akregator mainly)
kwrite.

This is fewer than usual because i am on my laptop. On my desktop I frequently have a konsole with 10+ tabs, 5-15 okular sessions, 1-5 konqueror sessions (with 1-10 tabs in each), 1-2 firefox sessions (for the all too numerous sites that konqui does not like)



bjoern says:

– akregator; 2 tabs
– 2 konsole; 2 tabs each
– emacs; 10 Buffers
– konqueror; 3 tabs
– anki



Emil Sedgh says:

Iceweasel
Kate
Konversation
A kopete chat window

3 of them have tabs.
I also have yakuake, which isnt really in taskbar. And it has tabs too.



Emil Sedgh says:

Oh, and Konqueror.



LuHe says:

1x Qt Designer
1x Dolphin – 2 Tabs
1x eric4 – 13 Tabs ;)
1x Google Chrome – 7 Tabs
1x Kopete Chat Window
1x Skype Chat Window
1x wxmaxima



markser says:

– akregator
– amarok
– chrome (20+ tabs)
– opera (2 tabs)
– korganizer reminder
– 2x okular
– 2 activities, 1 one which is empty because associations of windows to activities don’t seem to survive a restart in 4.5.4
– in icon bar: kopete, skype, basket, korganizer-reminder-thing



Well, I have only one app per virtual desktop, mostly, so here it’s just Akregator and konqueror with the poll. On the other desktops, there’s vmplayer, konsole, qtcreator, kmail and korganizer. In vmplayer there’s xephyr, konsole and qtcreator.



akreal says:

2 monitors with opera (~10 tabs) & konsole (~10 tabs) maximized, kmail + amarok + kopete + skype in the tray



David Edmundson says:

Okular – 1
Firefox – 1
Kopete – 2
Kmail – 1 (minimised)



joerg says:

Akregator, 1 window, with tabs

Choqok, 1 window, with tabs

Dolphin, 2 windows, 1 with tabs

Firefox, 3 windows, all with tabs

Kate, 1 window, with tabs

Kile, 1 window, with tabs

Konqueror, 1 window, no tabs

Konsole, 2 windows, all with tabs

Korganizer, 1 window, no tabs

Okular, 2 windows, no tabs

OpenOffice, 1 window, no tabs

Pidgin, 3 windows, 1 with tabs

Thunderbird, 1 window, with tabs

Virtualbox, 3 windows, no tabs

All on 9 virtual desktops

Will start exploring activities in more detail with 4.6, in 4.5 I only use 2 – one for my applications, one for plasmoids… don’t like my desktop cluttered and do like my applications maximized, so no use for plasmoids on my work desktop (besides panel, taskbar).

6 virtual desktops, taskbar shows only the apps for the current VD):

### VD1 (“instant communication”):

### VD2 (“mail and company web pages”):

### VD4 (“working area one”):
* okular

### VD5 (“working area two”):
* oowriter

### VD6 (“working area three”):
* nothing (most often konsole with one or two tabs)

Regarding activities: I still haven’t found a single, well written and graphical pimped document which explains me what activities are, in which situations they are helpful, how they can be conigured, and how they are actually used in the daily workflow.

Would be interested, though…

All in 1 activity

When I was trying out KDE 4.6 beta in which activities were much more useable, I used them a lot. Here in KDE 4.5 I do not use them because opening an app puts it to all activities which is not how it works.

Cheers, Wolfgang
