Description:

CONTENTS
1. Changed the plastik theme to draw a lighter line as listview branch.
2. Rounded selection in iconview (konqueror/kdesktop)*
3. A modern looking rubberband (gnome/xp semi-transparent style).*
4. Modified dialogs when in iconlist mode to highlight item on mouse over (mozilla-firefox).
5. Added a new konqueror sidebar look.
Idea from http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=17049
6. Now sidebar is saved per profile (bug 58580)
7. Fixed bug 88964 (Highlighting of files in Detailed List View does not
correspond to the area of activation).

Obs.: All patches are tested in kde-3.3.1/qt-x11-free-3.3.3 official
sources. I can't garantee that they will work in other kde versions.

* some patches are modified versions from the patches found in
http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-core-devel&m=107624741505943&w=2

GOOD NEWS
I started a thread in kde-devel mailing list to discuss the insertion of the patches in next kde release.
See http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-devel&m=109863377620287&w=2
Some of the improvements are already in KDE CVS.
I contacted trolltech and they are analyzing the patches.

TIPS
- To improve the performance of the rubberband try to enable the option
"RenderAccel" in your XF86Config file.
(sinve version 0.5.2 the rubberband performance is improved)
- To enable the new konqueror sidebar look add the line "SidebarStyle=1" in the file $HOME/.kde/share/config/konqsidebartng.rc in the group that has the same name of the profile you want to change:
For example:
[webbrowsing]
SidebarStyle=1

If anyone has more ideas (original ideas) to add to this patches, tell me and perhaps i will try to implement them.




Changelog:

v1.0.0: (2004-Nov-28)
* fixed bug with rubberband in iconview mode.
* added install instructions.

v0.5.5: (2004-Oct-31)
* fixed bug when new rubberband effect is disabled.

v0.5.4: (2004-Oct-31)
* added rubberband color cache (improve rubberband performance a little more). I can't do incremental patch cause i'm using the KDE CVS version now. The only file that was modified is kdelibs/kdefx/kstyle.cpp

v0.5.3: (2004-Oct-31)
* improved rubberband performance in iconview (now only the modified area is draw).
* fixed bug when drawing rubberband and right mouse button is clicked.
* added incremental patch. For those who are using version 0.5.2 just apply the patches found in dir patches-0.5.2.
Note: Only use the patches found in dir patches-0.5.3 if you are using version 0.5.2. Any doubt how to use this mail me.
* added TODO file. If you found any bug not in TODO mail me, and i will try to fix.

v0.5.2: (2004-Oct-26)
* fixed error in drawing the item background in konqueror detailed view mode when that is a background image set. You just need to recompile kdebase/konqueror/listview.

v0.5.1: (2004-Oct-26)
* fixed compile error in kdebase/konqueror/listview.

v0.5.0: (2004-Oct-25)
* a lot of cleanup and refactoring.
* fix bug in konqueror detailed view mode that made the alternate background lines draw incorrect (thanks to DarkLord to point this out).
* now no app will be affected by the patch for bug 88964.
* modified qt patches to kde ones so is more easy to get they accepted by kde developers.
* removed kdepim patch (no more necessary).

Hi! Can this patchset be applied to KDE 3.3.2?

I really like the enhancements that you are doing here, which I have been using for a while now. Great job.

Hi

I succeded in using the patch from KDE 3.3.1 on a KDE 3.3.2.
The patch for kdelibs applies without any problem, and on kdebase I get two hunks (but it seems to work, it's compiling...)
I didn't test kdeartwork yet.


Written under Konqueror, of course !

 ISSUES!

How can I remove these settings/effects after installed? I am using Slackware 10 (current) and got the slackware pkg.. The main issue I have is when you click to drag a box it looks REALLY REALLY choppy and traces of it are left behind. I hate it!

I can only suggest installing the original KDE again.

Some of the ideas look good to me, but some are the kind of thing I would stay clear of, this patch really needs some configuration ability(like how can I turn it off) before it goes anywhere near kde-core.

Swishy curvy transparent things are fine for a 2.5Ghz Athlon 64 with 1gb of ram and a decent graphics card,
they would choke on the 400MHz 64mg ipaq though!

You can disable almost all the settings!! Take a look at the README file.

I looked at the README file and it says the exact same stuff as the "Description" of "kde improvements" on kde-look.org.. I don't see anything about how to disable the patches.

to be more precise. You can disable the rubberband effect and the new konqueror sidebar style.

Any doubts mail me

Yeah I enabled the sidebar, it's kinda neat... i disabled the rubberband effects in kcontrol and my problem in that area is now fixed. Before I did this, I tried to enable the RenderAccel option in xorg.conf but it didn't help, or maybe i just didn't wrong... anyway, I'm no longer having seriously annoying problems!

Thanks!

I will probably end up completely reinstalling Slackware... I will admit the ideas are good, but like you said... the need to be more easily configurable.

 RenderAccel

 
 by oliverthered on: Dec 14 2004
 
Score 50%

SFAIK RenderAccel only works for NVidai graphics cards, or at least it doesn't work with ATI binary drivers.

since ATI have a crap XRender implementation (and I assume RenderAccel is needed to speed up XRender), I would like to know what the perfomance is like with an ATI card.

Buy an Nvidia card. Perfromance sucks with an ATI. Seriously, what are you doing running Linux with an ATI?

Even if someone GAVE you an ATI card it would still be worth it to sell for half what it's worth and buy an Nvidia card at half the speed, they'd run the same and the driver support would be better. I'd investigate Ebay if I were you.

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.
