UPDATE:: Shadowed text patch for KDE 3.1.3.

This patch has been cleaned to contain only 2 files for kdelibs and kdebase.
It maintains binary compatibility with the original code so you don't have to compile everything all over again.

** I'd like to thank to all of you for your interest and contributions to this patch. **


07 Aug: The download link contains patches to 3_1_3_RELEASE. Textar has already made RPMs for Mandrake beta (second shot).

14 Jul: the patch is in the CVS now, so the download is out of date until I 'll get around to backport it to 3.1 :)

23 Jun: new version with Bernardo's fix for kdesktop crashing.

20Jun: New patch (this time has 2 diff files: one for kdebase, one for kdelibs) . Also some code cleanup (less debug messages and some API docs).

Update 3
New patch created against a fresh copy of kde. 2 files. The config file shows an example of the default/selected configuration.

Update 2 :)
BIG THANKS to Bernardo for his algorithm implementation ("acurate" in shadowconfig)

UPDATE: 6:08 GMT> fixed nasty bug causing crash on bogus shadow thickness. Improved the size of the rendered shadow (some cutting off on the left handside was observed)

A configuration is provided via Background/advanced.

The user can add custom configurations to the predefined ones in kdesktoprc:
ShadowNames=Name 1,Name 2,Name 3,Name 4

and use the shadowconfig program to generate the entry strings.

This patch does no longer include the kicker pixmap patch.

See the source code for license, with the mention of: "If you have a nice/useful patch, contact me."

How do I use this? I've never dealt with a piece of software that's just two diff files before.

Is this meant to be used when compiling KDE? Or does it do something to an already compiled and installed KDE? (I run KDE 3.1.3 from Mandrake 9.2)

 Shadows in KDE 3.2+

This patch really was applied to KDE 3.2. The problem is in GUI configuration. This patch has no GUI configuration for different types of shadows.

Of course, you can change config files manually. In file .kde/share/config/kdesktoprc find section [FMSettings], add line:
Save file, then exec
dcop kdesktop KDesktopIface configure
to update your desktop. And we have new shadows! :)

What does parameters mean?
There are 10 parameters:
1. OFFSET X (integer)
2. OFFSET Y (integer)
4. MAX OPACITY(float)
5. THICKNESS (integer)
6. ALGORITHM (0,1,2,3,4)(NOTE: 0==1)
8. reserved
9. reserved
10. reserved
There are 4 diffrent algorithms:
0,1. Default decay
2. Double linear decay
3. Radial decay
4. No decay

I think kcm-module may be written for change this parameters visually. It may be similiar to color schemes.

Please, no flames. I use KDE/Linux and FBSD; I hate Windows. But XP's desktop shadows are way much better than KDE's ones - Anyone know how to make them more Windows XP-like?

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.
