[Task Manager] Tooltips redesign

Reworks the design of the task manager tooltips and adds new features.


  • New tooltip design:
    • Less screen space occupied by tooltips
    • Tooltips have always the same size
    • Better structured informations about a task: Appname, window title, desktop, activity if useful
    • Close button better looking and more visible
  • Group tooltips show per group task all individual informations
  • Group tooltips provide context menu per task and its group
  • Group tooltips in vertical bar are lined up as column
  • If supported by media player, controls are available for each instance separately
  • Fixed: In any case secondary media players instances are always also shown in group tooltip
  • Fixed: Flickable area when exceeding available display space
  • Fixed: Many warning and error messages

Technical overview:

  • For groups instead of relying on the window list provided by X, we now use a proper submodel of the grouped tasks
  • Window titles are processed by reg exp to only show the relevant part of them
  • Media player instances are distinguished by their process ids
