[QT] Desktop Derp
« on: June 04, 2013, 10:43:36 pm »
Inspired by jujus Browser Derp I made a Desktop Derp in C++ using QT! So far all it does is moving randomly around (with gif changing).
I'll have to come up with some good rules for which gif comes when (or make somebody else do that for me :P)
code upload soon!

Here we go (as promised): https://github.com/Sorunome/DesktopDerp

EDIT: I'm having trouble with a systemtrayicon and a rightclick-menu, if anybody wants to help me :D

Warning ! |\|00|3 question incoming ! 3... 2... 1...
How do I compile it ? I tried g++ main.cpp -o derpy but I have a no such file or directory error about QMainWindow (I installed the full Qt5 group in Arch).
I also tried qmake, make then ./DesktopDerp but it does nothing.
Edit : Aww... maybe I'm missing the GIFs ? :P

I downloaded a gif and it appears, I suggest using QMovie.isValid() ;)
BTW: Compiling with qt4 works, too.

I may be able to help. Did you read http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qsystemtrayicon.html#setContextMenu]http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qsystemtrayicon.html#setContextMenu]http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qsystemtrayicon.html#setContextMenu?
It accepts a QMenu, like in http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/mainwindows-menus.html

Yeah in README.md it says Qt5 but in DesktopPonies.pro it says "greaterThan(QT_MAJOR_VERSION, 4)".

I've put a GIF and hardcoded the name to see it work, it looks like Derpy's just randomly moving around. You need to make her follow the mouse like Juju's ! :D
Edit : Whoops, didn't read the OP correctly I guess. :P Seriously, you owe it to the world. :trollface:

Yeah, i still have to upload the gifs, and i compile it over qt creator, it says it uses these lines (untested):
qmake /home/sorunome/desktopponies/DesktopPonies/DesktopPonies.pro -r -spec linux-g++-64 CONFIG+=debug CONFIG+=declarative_debug CONFIG+=qml_debug
make in /home/sorunome/desktopponies/build-DesktopPonies-Desktop-Debug

it just has to create the c++ files out of the .ui files and then make in the new directory.

EDIT: Yeah Vogtinator, i'll take a look, thanks

And I noticed a bug O.O after like a sertain number of gifs it just can't load new ones anymore, any idea why?

While reading the source I noticed you're not freeing "QDesktopWidget *desk = new QDesktopWidget;", maybe that's the issue?

As simple as it sounds:
Code: [Select]
desk = new QDesktopWidget;
free desk;

Edit: If you don't use pointers, it'll be done automatically if it gets out of scope, like this:
Code: [Select]
{
QDesktopWidget desk;
}
//desk will be freed

uho, i need to decalre by QDesktopWidget *desk = new QDesktopWidget;
and free desk gives me the error that it expects a ; before desk

EDIT: but for soem reason i don't think it is the desk, because i just use that to check the boundries of the screen every frame.

Ok, let's see, it'll take like half an hour or longer.

BTW, can I somehow overgo the minimizing on when somkebody hits the show desktop button?
If not, can I somehow maximize my window?

Hmmm... That's why one shouldn't use two languages that are similar in the core but with little differences. :P
