Raise Gimp

Kwin Scripts

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on opencode.net


KWin Script: When Gimp image window is activated raise toolbox and docks of Gimp. When image window is not active anymore toolbox and docks are lowered again.

Note probably needs KDE 4.9 and higher due to API changes between 4.8 and 4.9.

Installation instructions for scripts can be found at http://techbase.kde.org/Development/Tutorials/KWin/Scripting#Packaging_KWin_Scripts

fixed bug in package structure

Nice idea and it does work. But alas it also does have a very nasty side effect: if the script is active the image window of Gimp always is behind Gimp's toolboxes :(, it is not possible anymore to raise the image window above the toolboxes. Therefore I had to deactivate the script. Would be great if this could be fixed.

This is a really useful and cool idea, unfortunately it doesn't seem to work in KWin 4.10.

I also wonder why I can't download it from the kwin script download screen in the kwin settings?!?

Personally I mostly use the single window GIMP mode nowadays. But you are right, I see the same problem, if I install the package via system settings. But it works for me, if I run it from the KWin console (qdbus org.kde.plasma-desktop /MainApplication showInteractiveKWinConsole). Will look into it.

> I also wonder why I can't download it from the kwin script download screen in the kwin settings?!?

That is probably because I uploaded it shortly before the kwin script category was available. When I figure out above mentioned bug, I will reupload it in the correct category and put a link in the description of this package.

Thanks for reporting.

To install any downloaded Appimage via GUI, use this tool AppImagelauncher.

To install Appimages from Appimagehub via CLI use appimage-cli-tool.
This allows you to e.g. search appimages with "app search xyz" and install any appimage via command "app install #id".

If you are a developer who is interested to easily build appimages from your code repo, read the guide here.
