Does anyone know how to get KDE to do the crazy hide all windows, Mac OSX F9 thing? It's really awesome. The F11 - show me all the windows on my desktop thing is cool too. Not very important, just cool.
That's awesome! For onlookers: the reverse works as well (press control+alt+D again and all your windows fly back). I guess I'll have to wait for the snazzy "see all windows" hotkey, or program it when I learn C/C++. Thanks.
Ok, now that's cool like nobody's business. It's not as "eye-candy-ish" as the OS X expose, as you called it, but it'll do just fine. Thanks again.
P.S. I try to put a "noob simplification message" in my posts, so here it is. To get kompose to work, install it and then run it. You won't see anything popup. Then press Ctrl+Shift+J or Ctrl+Shift+I. The first time it exposes the windows, it'll take a second to open all your minimized windows, but then it will go faster. When you select a window, all the minimized windows will return to being minimized, except of course for the one you selected (if it was minimized in the first place).
Distribution: Ubuntu, Debian, Various using VMWare
Kompose looks awsome!
It is slower than Expose on the mac, but I like the ability to switch between desktops.
One thing though - on the Mac, pressing F9 again makes the desktop go back to normal. Anyone know how to do this with Kompose? To close Kompose, I have to click on a window and I would rather be able to press Ctrl-Shift-I again to close it.
