Re: Icon-Only Task Manager Colored Backgrounds

2020-06-29 Thread Kai Uwe Broulik

Hi,

I also thought it was pretty cool but I tried that the other day with 
Task Manager by using the k-cluster sampling code from Big Screen to get 
the dominant icon color.


It didn't work very well. Our current design the line doesn't give much 
area for colorization (the background is pretty faint then) and I always 
kept thinking my VLC player was demanding attention as the button turned 
orange.


I sometimes wish I could colorize specific apps so I don't lose them in 
task bar (e.g. my email client or music player) but I am not sure the 
colorization stuff really works well in practice. I think Unity (or 
what's left of it) also moved away from permanently colored sidebar tiles.


Cheers
Kai Uwe

I'm not sure it looks good.
seems to be something kinda coming from windows7 taskbar, but makes it
graphically quite heavy and kinda "ruins" the design of the icons.

This looks really cool. We'd have to change our task manager style yet
again to correctly show the different states though. Still, I think there
are some utilities for generating colors based on image colors, so someone
could make a custom task manager and put it on store.kde.org.
