Revision as of 20:08, 12 September 2010 by Chani (scrapped the old plan, wrote in aseigo's instead)
without the ZUI, we need an alternate way to access the containments of screens that aren't connected...
the latest plan:
- when PVD is deactivated, we offer to purge the unused containments (but, in user-speak of course). other than that, we ignore PVD, because a virtual desktop can always be readded (whereas a screen may be physically unavailable).
- the activity manager UI will use thumbnails generated from the view (look at the code in kdelibs/plasma/animations/widgetsnapshot.cpp to see
how to do this). hopefully we can save these thumbnails out when closing an activity..
- when the current activity has >1 screen, it'll have a thumbnail for each screen. you can click to bring a containment to the current screen, and there'll be delete buttons for ones not in use.
- when a screen is detached its containment is left running as it is now; the performance impact of this should be negligible.
