Description:

Oxygen style and decoration with support for transparency (see screenshots).

This is an official branch of the KDE oxygen style. It is kept in sync with the official oxygen style, and adds support of full transparency on the windows.

The style and the decoration are named "Oxygen Transparent" and appear as such in KDE's system settings (in both the applications and workspace appearance pages).

A configuration helper application is included with the style that allows one to configure both the style and the decoration in the same window. It is called oxygen-transparent-settings.

The provided script, named oxygen-setup.pl is used to:

- get the sources (from git)
- configure them
- compile and install the window decoration and widget style.

important notes

1/ The style (and decoration) should work for recent enough versions of KDE4.

Different versions (branches) must be used depending on your KDE version:

- the KDE/4.8 version works with KDE/4.8 (tested), and possibly some earlier verions (not tested)

- the KDE/4.9 version works with KDE/4.9 (tested)

- the master version works with latest KDE, compiled from git. It may not work with any earlier KDE release.

New versions will be added (KDE/4.10, etc.) when the corresponding KDE4 version is out.

One can switch between branches by running the script and specifying the relevant branch:

Quote:
oxygen-setup.pl --branch KDE/4.8
oxygen-setup.pl --branch KDE/4.9
oxygen-setup.pl --branch master


By default (when no branch is specified), the master branch is used.

There is a number of additional options available for the setup script. To get a list of them, type:
Quote:
./oxygen-setup.pl --help


2/ Since March 4th 2011, oxygen-transparent has moved to git.

The project home page is:

https://projects.kde.org/projects/playground/artwork/oxygen-transparent

You can get the sources directly using:

Quote:
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/oxygen-transparent


3/ KDE development packages are needed for the compilation to succeed (see below)

Feedback highly appreciated either here on on IRC, #oxygen. (ping hpereira, or hugo)

Downloads

There are automatic builds linked in the download section which have been provided by others (thanks !).

Only the first download (the script) is maintained by me, it always provide the latest svn version of the code.

Needed packages for installation/compilation

(thanks to MezzeForte for providing the list):

- gcc-c++
- git
- cmake
- kdebase-workspace-dev
- libxrender-dev
- libx11-dev

- Depending on the distribution you have the name of the packages might change a bit

- there are usually more packages needed by the packages above and installed via dependency.

For instance,

Quote:
sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake kdelibs5-dev kdebase-workspace-dev libxrender-dev libx11-dev git


should work on recent enough Ubuntu (thanks to Antelmo for posting. See page5).

Bugs:

Even though oxygen-transparent is not officially part of KDE you can report bugs to https://bugs.kde.org.
You would need to select Oxygen as a product, and Style as a component.

Make sure that "Oxygen-Transparent" appears in the bug title so that it does not get confused with official oxygen bugs.

Posting bug reports at bugs.kde.org is highly recommended rather than posting comments on this page, as it makes my life much easier at bookkeeping.




Changelog:

7f0a6013:
- synchronized with latest oxygen
- created KDE/4.10 branch
- Warning: if you are using the "master" branch (which targets KDE/4.11), you will have conflicts with oxygen (@KDE) configuration, unless you are also using kde from git repositories
This is due to backward incompatible changes in the configuration code.

83a46b6c:
- attempt at fixing bug concerning window positionning on screen for multi-screen setup
- changes in version policy. New available branches are KDE/4.8, KDE/4.9, and master. KDE/4.10 branch will be added as soon as the corresponding KDE4 version is released. The "stable" branch has been removed.

731ce67e:
- synchronized with oxygen (KDE/4.9)
- fixed crash at exit for virtually all KDE applications

d7bb65f0:
- synchronized with oxygen
- use icon from icon theme for tab-close button
- updated install script to deal with master and stable branch

7a121e2:
- synchronized with oxygen
- fixed compilation issues with too old versions of KDE

 Generic X icon in title bar

 
 by odddude on: Apr 21 2011
 
Score 50%

Another problem :-(

If I select the widget style (window decoration is fine), certain KDE apps (dolphin and kwrite come to mind) only show the standard X11 X icon as their application icon in the title bar, instead of the icon used by my icon theme. As I use a dock, this is a pretty big deal for me. Selecting the non-transparent oxygen theme solves this.

Any thoughts?

I 'think' this issue is related to windows also showing up at (0,0) reported on the page before.

What happens is intrinsically an issue in Qt. Whenever transparency is set on an application window, Qt creates a second window (with transparency), to which the first one is copied later on.

Problem is: it places such window in 0,0 and has icon uninitialized.

Now: there is some code in oxygen to copy the icon and move the window to its previous correct position, but the problem is: this code is sometime executed too late, and not caught by kwin. Hence both issues. Note that this does not *always* happen. Its basically a race condition between kwin and oxygen.

I intend to dig more into how to try workaround these issues, but haven't have the time yet (and besides, due to the above race condition, I can't actually reproduce the problem ...)

In fact, the window icon issue, is due to some code I commented for testing and forgot to de-comment. I'll re-implement. The positioning I'm still working on it.

Will keep you posted about when everything is committed.

I'd need a crash report and/or back trace to investigate, since I can't reproduce here.

And some more precise diagnostic.
You mean plasma crashes when you resize any normal (non plasma) window ?

If yes that's weird cause they are two completly unrelated processes.

(normal window is kwin, and plasma is well plasma).

Does it happen if you use a different widget style ?

a different window decoration style ?

I don't know how to make a crash report, sorry. But I find what is the reason of the chrash of the kwin. In Desktop Effects there is a blur effect, when it's turn on kwin & plasma stuck when resize window dolphin or another window, not plasma widgets and only hard reboot can take a feeling the system. But if turn off it takes too so glasses and no crashes. There is one thing. When blur effect is on and in workspace appearance take another winow decoration stucks and crashes not observed but system is slowed...

I actually forgot to push the change to the repository. Its fixed now.
Next time you update (re-run the script, install, and then logout/login), the png's should be gone.

after setting a non opaque transparency, only newly started applications will be affected (I think). You might also need to restart kwin (or simply logout/login).

This assuming that you have selected oxygen-transparent for both the widget style and the window decoration.

You also need to have desktop effects enabled.

Other than the above, no clue :(

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
