Hey, this is the Flexible Plugin for KSplash that goes together with the Brilliant Splash Screen (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=20622).

Am a little bored right now, so I'd appeciate it if you gave me some suggestions for improvements...Thanks

UPDATED! Now featuring a smooth blend-away to your desktop-background at the end. Forget about unsmooth things, cause this thing over here is smooooth.

! If you feel, the splash is running at poor frame rates and your do not have accelerated OpenGL available, please see the splash theme page on what to do...

(BTW: you'll need the new theme as well)

What is it?
Well, the splash screen for example you see, when KDE starts up, is handeled by KSplash. There come about three themes with a standard release of ksplash. Two of them are not toooo good. I mean, who wants a windows startup screen in linux, right. The third one is the "Standard" Plugin for KSplash. It's not too bad, but it does not offer a whole lot of choices.

With my new plugin you will be able to:
--- Place the icons anywhere, not only in a horizontal row of fixed width and height per icon.
--- Place the message anywhere, any color, (any font and any angle is coming up soon)...
--- Added better support for alpha transparency as the other plugins definitely suck in that regard. Transparency is not perfect though (cause of the limitations of Qt3, probably we'll have to wait for Qt4 to get full alpha support).
--- Support for spiffy alpha blendings.
--- and more...

The options for the Flexible v0.3 engine actually are:
#BackgroundImage = [filename] (default is none)
#BackgroundColor = [32 Bit HTML Color Code] (like #RRGGBBAA, default is transparent, taken if no BackgoundImage given)
#Position = autoalign, fixed (default is autoalign)
#PositionFixedX = [a number] (default is 0)
#PositionFixedY = [a number] (default is 0)
#GrabFullScreen = true, false (default is false)
#VerticalAutoAlign = top, middle, bottom (default is middle)
#HorziontalAutoAlign = left, center, right (default is center)
#Width = [a number] (default is [width of background image], if no background image: 400)
#Height = [a number] (default is [height of background image], if no background image: 300)
#ShowProgressPercentage = true, false (default is false)
#ShowMessages = true, false (default is true)
#MessageColor = [24 Bit HTML Color Code] (like #RRGGBB, default ist white)
#MessagePositionX = [a number] (default is 0)
#MessagePositionY = [a number] (default is 0)
#MessagePositionDX = [a number] (default is [Width])
#MessagePositionDY = [a number] (default is [Height])
#MessageHAlign = left, center, right (default is center)
#MessageVAlign = top, middle, bottom (default is middle)
#FadeUp = off, Linear, SineSquared, SineToTheFourth (default is SineSquared)
#FadeUpTime = [milliseconds] (default is 1000)
#FadeDown = off, Linear, SineSquared, SineToTheFourth (default is SineSquared)
#FadeDownTime = [milliseconds] (default is 1000)
#FadeDownAfterStepNo = [a number] (default is 7)
#FadeDownToWallpaper = true, false (default is false)
#Number "?" in options for StepImages is limited to 7 so far
#Step?Image = [filename] (required)
#Step?ImagePositionX = [a number] (default is 0, number "?" of StepImages is limited to 7 so far)
#Step?ImagePositionY = [a number] (default is 0, number "?" of StepImages is limited to 7 so far)
#Step?ImageFade = off, Linear, SineSquared, SineToTheFourth (default is SineSquared)
#Step?ImageFadeTime = [milliseconds] (default is 1000)

What is does upon you hit "make install" (everthing in written down in Makefile.am):
---Essencially it generates a library called ksplashflexible.la and/or .lo, and copies this file to the kde libraries directory.
---The other file ksplashflexible.desktop will be copied to the kde services directory.
---That should be all.


-Able to blend away to your desktop background, giving a awesome effect a startup
-splash now uses OpenGL, major speed improvement...

-crashed if no background image was found or given
-added RGBA background color support if no background is given

-Added animation support
-In particular smooth alpha blendups from desktop as well as smooth vanishing. Blending of Icons.
-even more configuration options for your own themes.

first release, nothing special

Got it.... thanks, nice piece of work
Bit heavy on the resources but... still nice

Don't look at me... I've been right here all day.

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.
