Activity Manager : have multiple activities a'la KDE's plasma !

Posted on 7:17 PM by SlipKoRnSaad

Activity manager (actman) is a status menu applet that allows the user to have multiple activities (a'la KDE's plasma). An activity is the set of all desktop widgets, bookmarks and icons along with the background.

For example, it is possible to have an activity named "car" where the desktop is customized to be easily accessible while driving without having many icons. Then another activity named "games" to include shortcuts to games. Then another activity named "clean" without any widgets on the desktop in order to conserve battery.

Activity manager comes along with a command-line tool (/usr/bin/activity) that can be used by other applications, scripts or automations in order to handle desktop activities.

Available :  Extras-devel
