Depends on  KDE 4.x

Submitted:  Jul 20 2010

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

You are apparently missing qmake. It is included in some Qt4 devel package, provided by your distribution. You might then also miss other packages. See the text in the package description (above) for an indicative list of required packages.

Keep me posted,

The decision to not merge this version with official was made not just to make the users curse the devs. It was because of technical problems AFAICT. You still can use this version instead of official one, what's the problem?

Hi, people! The style is awesome. But The problem is that some applications are stil using non-transparent oxygen, especialy Opera. Is there any way to apply this style to Opera?

Opera is not using Qt (as far as I know), but GTk. So no transparency there, until it is supported in Gtk. Besides, even then, I'm pretty sure it would still not work with Opera, since it only uses gtk as a wrapper and is not a "native" gtk application.

Same will be true for open/libreoffice, firefox, thunderbird, and some others.

Sorry.

 Blur

Score 50%

hello, great job Hugo, this solves some problems with my vlc (formerly with oxygen had black screenshots when I moved the cursor or increase volume), oxygen-transparent now does not. But I have problems with 'Blur', amarok is slow, so I turn off Blur. I really like the Blur effect.
Would be a great idea for Gtk Applications also have transparency, but that seems complicated.
anyway the style is brilliant.

Sorry for posting off-topic.

No, transparency in Gnome is no problem at all.
Just have a look on this: http://ubuntuguide.net/enable-transparent-gnome-panelsmenuswindows-in-ubuntu-10-10
Works fine on my machine (Gnome on Natty), but I still prefer KDE. ;)

 Problem in dual monitor

 
 by jamanel on: Aug 17 2011
 
Score 50%

Hi there,

I love this style since it was created, but I can't use it because in a dual monitor configuration (using Nvidia twinview). oxygen-transparent always place the windows on the second monitor, which is normally power off. It doesn't happen with the normal oxygen style, and is not useful to have to move the windows every time from the second to the first monitor.

I'm using a package from the unstable repo for kde (4.6 and now in 4.7 too) by opensuse (11.4),but it happens also with the archlinux package from AUR. I'm using Nvidia drivers, but I remember I see the same behaviour with the novau drivers in Arch.

Is there anything I can do to solve the problem?

Thanks in advance!

This is a known bug in an older version of oxygen-transparent, it's placing windows to the position 0,0. It was fixed a long time ago.

Since you are using the packages for suse... I'm kind of "maintaining" this package. Perhaps you are using a "svnXXXXXX"-version? Sadly "svnXXXXXX" is a higher version than "gitXXXXXX" for rpm, so you are not getting the latest updates. You need to "downgrade" to the git-version manually.

BTW, then will this theme get a real version-number? :D

Hi there

I've just compiled it using the script provided, but the problem is always the same: all new opened windows go to the center of my second monitor.

I forgot to explain that my first monitor is connected via VGA and the second via HDMI, but kde and the normal oxygen style recognize my first monitor as it is. Using latest nvidia drivers.

Can anyone help please? Thank you!

Have you tried the current suse-packages from KDE:Unstable:Playground-repo? They are working here in a similiar setup without problems.

Yes :(

This package (from .../KDE:/Unstable:/Playground/KDE_Release_47_openSUSE_11.4/) was that I had installed before trying with those installed by the script. The same problem when using KDE 46.

I can reproduce the issue (with latest git also).
It is an issue "related" to what Homer mentioned, but slightly different ... and even harder to fix.
Will investigate more.

ok. I just tried to commit a fix to the issue.
at least it seems to work here. Please give it a shot (by fetching and compiling the latest git version) and report back.

If I revert Revision fed630d9 it is working perfectly on my system.

@jamanel: Can you check what version is working for you? The standard from KDE:Unstable:Playground or my patched version from home:balta3:branches:KDE:Unstable:Playground

@Homer,
well, the commit you reverted was the one attempting to fix the issue reported by Jamel
(it actually did fix the issue on my laptop, without introducing regression). So I doubt that your patch version does fix it (right ?)

Now, I would encourage two things:

1/ Jamel and Homer: could you also try with bespin widget style (enabling translucency) and tell me if you have similar issues, and which ones. (with Homer's patched version, bespin and oxygen should have similar code and behave essentially the same).

2/ this issue should best be reported on https:bugs.kde.org. (select oxygen as a product, widget style as a component, and mention oxygen-transparent in the title). This would make everybody's life easier to keep track of this bug, and result in having more feedback. My impression is that some fix for some configuraiton breaks other configurations and one can't make everybody's happy.

Also Homer: is your issue the same as Jamel, or different ?

Thx,

Hugo

soon soon. Will do.
Its mostly a manpower issue.
(keeping the code in sync with oxygen is already quite painful. Releasing is extra burden. Sorry).

Hi Hugo, thanks for you work, I've created a .deb package for users of Kubuntu 11.04 x86 (it might work as well in other versions). The deb was created using checkinstall and I've successfully tested it so far in three different computers.
It's overhere: http://www.mediafire.com/?dbmcycb1zvl8z3o

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
