KDE Improvement

Score 74%
Homepage:  Link
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  219
Submitted:  Mar 6 2010
Updated:  Aug 7 2011

Description:

Serves the same purpose as "slide back", but is less animated ;-)

(the stacked behind windows fade out in front of and in behind the new top window, takes ~300ms)

*** THIS IS COMPLETELY OUTDATED ***
Progress will happen at https://sourceforge.net/p/bekwinfx/




Changelog:

0.4a
----
Serious BUGFIX for 0.4 - fixes kwin segfaults when closing an occluded window.

0.4
----
KDE 4.7 _ONLY_!
If you really need the < 4.7 sources, drop me a mail.

0.3
----
- override exposure, since it's confusing and a hackish workaround there's a script ("setExposure"), but no dialog.

0.2
---
- clear screen when done (used to be hidden by overly expensive shadows ;-)

This is a really nice "tasteful" effect - Makes a beautiful change from the "In Your Face" Compiz style effects ;)

One minor detail - Maybe it would be better listed under the "Focus" sub-heading (like slide-back) rather than "Appearance".

Love your work and looking forward to the next masterpiece!

Cheers,

Steve

It is such a beautiful kwin fx. I love it but I notice that the window shadow do not fade with the window, resulting an empty shadow frame during the animation. It will go away once the animation is done though.

I think it is due to incorrect QRegion which doesn't include shadow area. Too bad I don't know much about qt or kde. I can't find a good document about EffectWindow either :(

BTW, if I used beshadowed is there a way to set the correct region there?

This is a structural issue with the KWIn renderstack which allows only one plugin to expose the window.

The blur plugin exposes them by 1 or 2 px what's not sufficient for shadows.

Using shadows built into the deco or disabling the blur plugin will probably "solve" your issue.

I'll add a config value to artificially increase the repaint area, but the blur/shadow exposure clash will hit you in other places nevertheless.

I'm getting the same effect.
Wouldn't it be a solution to disable the shadow before fading out? But maybe thats not possible.

No, effects cannot toggle other effects.
Use the setExposure workaround - future versions of KWin shall hopefully get rid of this issue anyway.

There you go.
In case you wonder: bedropped is gonna take a little longer since i'll rebase it on a generic animation effect which will -with a little luck- end up as 4.8 class to allow easy and safe animtion effect generation.

The BeDropped would be nice, I'll wait until 4.8 ;)

Very good work!

WARNING: 0.4 has a BUG which will crash kwin everytime you close an inactive window (and activate on click)

This is likely because windowRaised is not slot, but window closed is (off by one event cycle)

I'll find, write and upload a fix asap. Until then consider to DEACTIVATE BeFaded 0.4

Sorry.

The header was temporarily removed in some (development) version(s) of Ubuntu 10.10 but should meanwhile be re-added.

You can download it (v4.7.0) from eg. here:
https://projects.kde.org/projects/kde/kdebase/kde-workspace/repository/revisions/v4.7.0/changes/kwin/libkwineffects/kwineffects.h

"kde4-config --path include"
ensure it's the exactly right version (i linked 4.7.0 - 4.7.1 is current since yesterday or so) and try to get the header through the package system (otherwise you'll have to ensure to keep it up-to-date by hand...)

Are you using (that particular) Ubuntu?

FYI: i've just checked and according to this:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/i386/kdebase-workspace-dev/filelist

kdebase-workspace-dev /does/ contain the required header in "natty" - it's apparently only absent in some "oneiric" alpha.

So if you don't use such alpha and have the package installed, the file should be there.
If you do use such alpha you can probaly just download the linked file and copy it to /usr/include

In doubt compile and then remove it again (or at least remove it before upgrading to oneiric)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
