Description:

After parsing through the KDE source code and looking through the net, I'd finally figured out how to make KDE 3.2/3.1 desktop dropshadows look a lot better.

As we all know, the default dropshadows look and smell like penguin poo! :)

Here's to hoping someone writes a GUI configuration program for this though. In the meantime, you now have my tutorial...




Changelog:

December 27, 2004 - A couple small changes

May 4, 2004 - updated URL

 Speaking of shadows

Speaking of shadows, anyone know if it's possible to draw a "bubble" around the text, like Gnome does for example (look at the home icon) :

Not without patching qiconview, kiconview and probably kdesktop - i think there was a patch doing this on the kde developer mailing list some time ago - so look around for this there.

This is very good. Definately worth for someone making a nice gui for this. Can't see why the KDE developers hadn't set any other default parameters, 'coz the current default are... well... ugly :P

Thanks for the tip, this is going into 'remember this stuff' file for me. :)

For my second example, I used the Window XP style dropshadow with black text.

the default is just ugly, this is awsome! A gui version would be nice with "preview".

great job..i think there are so many hidden features about personalizing the look & feel in KDE.

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.
