KWin drop shadow patches

KWin drop shadow patches

Link:  http://
Minimum required   KDE 3.2.x
Downloads:  17536
Submitted:  Feb 6 2004
Updated:  Apr 29 2004


KDE 3.2/3.2.1/3.2.2 port of the patch that gives KWin the ability to put a shadow, halo, or other hazy-with-roughly-the-same-shape type object, of any colour, under any window.

Now with an experimental addition that sort-of-kind-of allows windows to update other windows' shadows when something changes! Specifically, when a Qt/KDE app's window's content is scrolled.

Good fun for all the family, unless you happen to live completely in the dark, in which case shadows might be a frightening and alien concept.


- add DCOP interface for other programs to interact with shadows (many thanks to Thomas Lübking for implementing this):
- setShadowed(unsigned long window, bool shadowed):
- activates or deactivates a specific window's shadow
- updateOverlappingWindows(unsigned long window):
- redraws all shadows covering a specific window
- experimental patch for KStyle to make drop shadows update when a window (that isn't on top) is scrolled
- fix needless redraw of all shadows when desktop is focused
- fix needless redraw of shadow when Meta- or Alt-clicking in a window that's already active and raised
- add patch KDE 3.2.2

- fix undisable-able shadow
- fix loading of shadow enabled/disabled setting from session info
- fix top menu's disappearence

- fix problems related to Focus Follows Mouse mode:
- fix visual artifacts caused by deactivated window's shadow overlapping active window's shadow when a window is activated but not raised
- fix outdated shadows of windows overlapping the active window when a window is activated but not raised
- fix outdated shadow when a window that was activated but not raised, is raised
- fix outdated shadow when a transient window's parent is unshaded behind the transient window

- forward port to KDE 3.2
- move Shadow window option into Advanced submenu
- erm... I forget? :P Had to change a lot of small details to make it work with
KDE 3.2, so I'm really not keen on recalling it all...

for 3.3.0_rc2 take this one:


they've only f**ked up the ruleswidgetbase.ui and two other lines of code ;)

patch should apply without ANY fuzz/offset/error message :)
atleast it does so here ;)

ok i'm on vacation for on and a half or two weeks, so don't expect much interactivity from my side...but i'll have a look

in the meanwhile i will continue coding on this:


yeah i know, not the best (i'm a design misstalent ;), but i like it, and its my first kwindeco :)

hey guys, please vote with a good for this project here. we wanna stay no 1, don't we? :)

1. get yourself a matching source-package of kdebase (and if you want the click-through-shadow-feature you need kdelibs too)
2. unpack 'em
3. cd into kdebase-x.x.x and do:
patch -p0 < kdebase.kwin.patch
(and for kdelibs: cd kdelibs-x.x.x/kdefx
and do patch -p0 < kdelibs.kwin.patch
4. configure, make, make install etc.
(i think kdelibs needs to be completely recompiled, but kdebase can be done by cd kwin && make && make install after ./configure)

hmm i missed to put the readme into the patch-archive :/
but in the file on this side here there is an readme/install describing the install procedure. you can have a look at this...

and please, do a click on [good] at the vote for this project. thanks :)

well, you'll need the sources of the same version as the kde already installed. otherwise, there
might be corruptions. but you can replace kde completely by a newer version. 3.3.0 final should be
released in the next 7 days (can't remember the actual date)

and you have to take the patch for kde-3.2.3. the link should be some posts before or just click

thats only the kwin-patch. the kdefx-patch is located in the file from deciare himself (with the
readme and the whole other stuff)

note: with the final release of kde 3.3 (and me being back in berlin) i will do a new content-page containg at least actual 3.3-patches and maybe 3.2.3 too

hey guys (and girls ;)

the patch for kde3.3.0-final will be released this weekend - at least i think so. well, i've fixed some minor shadow glitches and needless redraws. but there's still an glitch which is reproducible all the time. the good news: i know whats causing the glitch - the bad news: fixing this would cause more redraws/performance or it would need checking the order of the clients :/ (maybe i'll think about that more intensive, tomorrow)
i tried to give a more complete shadow-updating in kstyle, but QScrollView updates in applications aren't recognized and forwarded as they should :/

one more 'bad' news. this could be the last patch for kwin utilizing these shadows. the reason will be explained with the release.

i'm going to sleep now... good night :)

Is it possible to release a patch for KDE 3.5.3? I happen to have an ATI graphics card, which doesn't like Xorg... >:^(

If you can make it look beautiful, just do it.

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.
