Description:

Punt gives KDE users a Dock just like their Mac OS X cousins. It is also intended to eventually be a drop-in replacement for Kicker, but I would highly recommend against using it as such at present. This program is currently in the very earliest stages of development, so I can promise you that it is not going to do everything you want it to do. (Heck, I can't promise you that it will work at all!) Punt is based on early betas of Mac OS X, since Qt/KDE/X11 does not support transparency/translucency to any acceptable degree. Besides, if I were to make it look any closer to the Dock than it already does, I would probably end up getting a knock on my door from Apple (and I just might be pushing it already... ;) )

In any event, you are welcome to download and try this program out. You'll at least get a general idea for what it will eventually do.

0.10-RELEASE:
*Initial public release. I've been sitting on the original Punt for over a year. This is a from-scratch rewrite.

0.10-RELEASE (re-release):
*Missing KdeIcon.cpp and KdeIcon.h prevented Punt from compiling. After adding the files to the archive, it should work just fine. (My apologies. :) )

that people are rating down this good concept... I think, its really good, when its ready. Do you plan transparency by the way? I am not sure, if I read about this. But at least me can not wait to get a (working) version of this ;-)

I believe it's the screenshot. It doesn't show anything special. And maybe the description should tell if it _works_ like the apple one, the way icons "jump" on the screen.

you are kidding, aren't you?
Are you always reacting so quickly?
One is submitting a project, questions are given, I really don't understand why you think , for godsake, that I'm gonna buy a mac just to see an icon jump, as some wm still do it (give a look at windows maker or enlightenment).
Sorry if I seems rude, but I don't find you really funny nor aware of the subject.

Have a nice day

Sorry for the bad screenshot, but it really doesn't do too much yet (no jumping). I'm working on getting the core functionality working (drag-n-drop, configurability) before putting in the eye candy.

It will eventually support jumping icons (KSplash/ML does, why shouldn't this? :)), and will support icon "zooming" on mouseover, but this code is not robust enough to deal with that yet. It will be in the future.

I will be posting updates as I progress on the development of this project.

I meant the translucent Kicker patch...

but it destroyed first my keramik theme, and at the second tryout my whole kde3, cause I installed a missing library and that conflicted a.s.o. a.s.f. :(

keep trying. Also, there is a patch for kicker transparency, i saw it on kdelook a few days ago check it out.
Maybe it would be easier for you to modify kicker itself to look like you want it. just a thought. Some very talented developers worked on kicker.
