Description personalizedrefrigerator 2021-11-22 07:13:17 UTC
A long tap on items in the task manager (Icons-Only Task Manager) should open the context menu for that item. Without this context menu, users cannot easily remove an item from favorites.

1. Tap and hold on an icon in the task manager

The icon activates as if left-clicked.

The context/right-click menu should be shown.

Only tested on Wayland.
Comment 1 Nate Graham 2021-11-23 17:32:07 UTC
Works for me on Wayland; cannot reproduce.
Comment 2 personalizedrefrigerator 2021-11-24 13:43:06 UTC
I can also reproduce this on Manjaro/Plasma 5.23.3. I am not running touchegg (a possible cause for not being to able to be reproduced?).
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2021-11-24 20:33:30 UTC
Neither am I.
Comment 4 Patrick Silva 2022-02-17 12:45:22 UTC
Can reproduce on neon unstable. I can't remove apps pinned to icon-only or classic task managers using my touchscreen.

Operating System: KDE neon Unstable Edition
KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.80
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.92.0
Qt Version: 5.15.3

Comment 5 Nate Graham 2022-02-17 18:33:18 UTC
I think I was testing the wrong thing before.

Indeed, the task manager doesn't show a context menu on press-and-hold the way Kickoff does.

applets/taskmanager: show context menu on press-and-hold

This makes the applet more touch-friendly. Most applets are designed in
such a manner that they don't have any features that can *only* be
accessed from a context menu, but the Task Manager is an exception, and
it's not at all simple to envision how we could move all the items in
the context menu to a visible UI, or if it would even be feasible or
desirable to do so at all.

Thus, let's just show the normal context menu with a press-and-hold.

Code is lifted from Kickoff, including the TODO.
