Floating Extenders

Floating Extenders

Depends on  KDE 4.x
Downloads:  230
Submitted:  Mar 10 2009

Description:

Ever wanted your extenders to be floating, like your other dialogs?
Atleast I did, and I found the lack of configuration, or even support for tuning this from the themes, very disturbing.

So I checkout the latest KDE4.2.1 branch plasma libraries and recompiled them to give myself floating extenders!

Hope you enjoy it!

PS. Yes, I know this is a very clumsy way to package it... I should create a patch or something, but I am not really that much into those things.

OBSERVE! Only compile and install this on KDE 4.2.1.

INSTALLATION

mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr
make
su
make install

Replace /usr with your KDE4 prefix.

Enjoy.

I'm sorry but I didn't get what this is supposed to do. And it's not even clear from the screenshots. I guess I just don't know what the "extender" is, nor floating extender :)

Hey and what makes your knotify popups transparent? Is it a theme or it's made by compositing being turned on?

I've just tried it and the patch makes all "popup dialogs" from widgets embedded on panels have all four borders present.
The default behaviour is to remove the border closest to the panel to give the impression that the popup extends from that panel. That's great in theory but it sometimes looks a bit weird if you use custom-width and/or hiding panels.
Umm, that *is* what the patch is supposed to do, right, Znurre?

Exactly, that *is* the usage of this mod.
When I use any other theme than Aya, extenders looks out of place in my opinion... Oxygen is one of the worst examples, sadly, since the rest of KDE 4 is so well polished.

PS. The theme on the screenshots is new-theme by TheRob with aya Tasks and 100% transparent systemtray controls.

Since yesterday I've been pestering people at the Look & Feel KDE forum about exactly this issue.

Your version of plasma built and installed without any hiccups and worked immediately after logout/login.

Is there any chance that this change will work its way into trunk? According to the discussion at http://forum.kde.org/panel-popup-border-t-37139.html I got the impression that trunk is moving in the opposite direction.

I guess this gives all edges of an knotify windows round edged. The bottom line has no edges normaly. With this it looks like the windows of the weather forecast or system monitor.

 Patch?

Can you provide a patch file or document the changes made to the original source in some other way? I'd like to build some debs for my Kubuntu Intrepid installs and I'd prefer to base them on the source debs.

 Build against 4.2.2

Is it safe to install it on 4.2.2 or will it downgrade my plasma files? I mean... it's just a (beautiful) *patch*, isn't it?

I haven't tried yet.
I will post my changes soon, so you can apply them to other versions as well.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
