How to provide uniformity for active applets (same active line) across all my docks with Latte 0.7?

Plasma uses the tabbar.svg file in order to provide how an active applet would look like. This file is located at your theme directory/widgets/tabbar.svg. So if the user wants to use the same line (color and thickness) found at Latte Tasks plasmoid for its applets as well while at the same time not messing with some lines shown at the top and some at the bottom, they can try the following:

  1. Go to <theme directory>/widgets/ and rename tabbar.svg to tabbar.svg.old
  2. execute the command
    kbuildsycoca5 --noincremental
    to update your cache
  3. restart Latte
  4. go to Tweaks -> Active Applet Indicator -> Everywhere

This way, you will be able to have the same active line for all your applets and tasks as well as one that is animated. ;)

How can I activate the "Internal Tasks Separator"?

Can I change the preview delay in the Latte task manager?

You will need to alter your layout text file:

  1. Close Latte
  2. Open your layout text file from ~/.config/latte
  3. Try to locate your Latte plasmoid settings. A quick way to do this is to search for isInLatteDock=true
  4. The following line sets preview delay to 150ms. Take note that this is the lowest value that can be set and work correctly.
  5. Open Latte



Can I disable the "Unified Global Shortcuts" feature introduced with v0.8?

If you want Latte to trigger activation/new instance global shortcuts only for Latte plasmoids, this is possible from v0.8.1 by disabling the parameter unifiedGlobalShortcuts in the file ~/.config/lattedockrc



Can I have different Borderless Maximized windows options between different layouts?

1. Yes, this is possible. First enable this functionality in Latte's Preferences settings:

2. Enable/Disable this functionality per layout on the Latte Layout settings afterwards.
