Description:

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. **




Changelog:

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14 Jul: the patch is in the CVS now, so the download is out of date until I 'll get around to backport it to 3.1 :)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:
[CustomShadow]
ShadowNames=Name 1,Name 2,Name 3,Name 4
ShadowItem.1=
ShadowItem.2=
ShadowItem.3=
...

and use the shadowconfig program to generate the entry strings.

This patch does no longer include the kicker pixmap patch.

 things like that..

are very useful, if people have got multiple desktops with diffrent (light/dark) wallpapers, or even if they just have got 1 desktop but changing their wallpaper like a slideshow.
i often got this kind of problem..
there are so many beautiful wallpapers, so this "shadowed-text" feature is already expected since a long time (in my point of view:).

another good idea could be, to generally handle each virtual desktop individually. so that people can set:

- diffrent text color,
- hide all icons on >this

- etc.

...on every desktop diffrently.
how about this ?

thx

OUCH!

imho per-desktop handling is a huge development task with relatively little usability gain. The halo should solve the different backgrounds problem elegantly enough.

sure, a kind of shadow is really nice, if there is "no" and i mean "no" speed decreasement using that. a diffrent text-color for example should not be so heavy..
my idea was, to provide the features that are already there for individual virtual desktops. just instances of something that is already implemented.
but of course, if that's really too much work and less usability, and the shadowed text is not too slow (if refreshing desktop, etc.)
that's more then ok :)

I think you must contact kde developers, because this two things are just great! They must be included in next release!

Keep up the greatest work!

Well the code is already written by a kde coder:)
It makes soft shadows ala XP
It has been written 6 months ago but couldnt go in becoz of the freeze.It also uses HW , so its very fast.

I am sure it will be in cvs soon.

Where did you get your font? Is the font called impact, as shown in your screenshot? Can you upload the font?

It's Impact. If it's in the ms free webfonts you can get it off sourceforge (can't remember exactly the page but a googleing should provide). Otherwise, a M$ license may be required...

this evening. I promise :). I did a patch last night (@ 2am) and i've noticed today that it didn't include the new files :(.

Also, I've changed the kdelibs extension so it won't break binary compatibility (as mentioned on the kde-devel list).

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
