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14 Jul: the patch is in the CVS now, so the download is out of date until I 'll get around to backport it to 3.1 :)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.

Drop shadows ? the way the readability issue was solved up until now by GNOME, Jaguar and XP was with a dark drop shadow for the characters. IMHO, its much prettier while providing almost the same readability as the "halo" idea.

Maybe you can make something configurable - either a drop shadow, a halo or none, so that users can pick what they want ?

 Can't execute widget

I got the patch to work with kde-3.1, without the kicker panel arrow patch.
I had to edit all the patches and mess with shadowwidget lol.
It can't seem to find kdesktop.so nomatter how you compile it, but it does work if you LD_PRELOAD kdesktop.so in a .sh file and use that to execute it.
It took a bit of work, but this looks AWESOME. Thanks ALOT!!!
Now if it would only work for filemanager fonts...
If you're interested I can post a tarball somewhere with the edited patches and an instruction file.
Thanks again.

Well, i did mention that i'm a bit useless on doing patches :)

What do you mean "file manager"? I think adding the effect in konqueror is rather extreme :). However, it can be done by moving all the fx stuff from kdesktop to libkonq (I think) (or kiconview in kdelibs/kdeui).

As for the patch, please do! :) you can send it to me @ laurivan*at*eircom.net and i'll have a look...

 Great job, but...

I are having problem with compiling the shadowconf.

1. in .ui/shadowconfiguratorbase.cpp you have refered a include to your own home = easy to fix :)

2. in shadowconfigurator.cpp you a refering to fxdatadesktop.h. That was not in the patch and is not a part of kdelibs (I think)

3. for the kicker-replacements I gave up after a while ... found out the patch didn't do the job well, so I did it manually, it compile further, but got stuck at "undefined reference to" different files at kicker/applets/taskbar/taskbar_panelapplet.la.closure

keep up the good work!! (I am sooo exited :)

sorry for the hasle, maybe I should discuss with a pen and paper instead of filling this forum with self-helping words *grin*

This is really fantastic work, thanks! I cannot use the shadowconfig still, but editing in desktoprc was a charm :)

..I've mentioned that the shadowconfig is a quickie :). I'm reluctant to installing the desktopdata.h in include because is meant to be an internal class only for kdesktop. I'd rather have a combo box with predefined themes, since all people will desire will most likely be one of the configurations displayed in the readme file.

 Shadowconfigurator?

 
 by guppetto on: Feb 18 2003
 
Score 50%

I got the shadow patches installed and they work great, however, the shadowconfigurator blows up. The main.o file in the hidden .obj directory appears to be a bunch of jibberish. I'm getting the following error:

.ui/shadowconfiguratorbase.cpp:98: invalid use of undefined type `struct KonqIconViewWidget'
shadowconfiguratorbase.h:19: forward declaration of `struct KonqIconViewWidget'
.ui/shadowconfiguratorbase.cpp:100: no matching function for call to `QGridLayout::addMultiCellWidget(KonqIconViewWidget*&, int, int, int, int)'
/usr/lib/qt3/include/qlayout.h:325: candidates are: void QGridLayout::addMultiCellWidget(QWidget*, int, int, int, int, int = 0)
make: *** [.obj/shadowconfiguratorbase.o] Error 1

The configurator looks to be a very neat tool, so if you can help, I'd really like to get it built and installed. Mandrake 9 KDE 3.1, all patches applied except for the kicker stuff. I like the black arrows!

I'll do a proper shadowconfig in the next couple of days (with kdevelop that is :) ) and a patch to the kcontrol module to be able to set up the few shadow types from a combo box.

 YOU README LACKS

Saying that your README file, the ONLY information as to how to install these patches, is lacking, is my politically correct way of saying that it sucks donkey balls. I tried for an hour to figure things out, as you basicall say "heres the files, not install them", and still have no idea how to install the patches. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE improve your README so what users like me can apply the patches and benefit from your work. BTW, great work it is.

If your looking for help, you might want to drop the smart ass remarks. With that being said, what your missing about the install is that you need to do a man on the patch command. To apply the patches, place the .diff files in the directories that he explains in the Readme and execute the following command:

patch -b --verbose !

..and sorry about that. Also, I havent got around to read the messages for quite a while, and sorry about that as well.

However, your politically correctness is actually cancelled just few words after you state it :). Instead of slagging, you could have posted me the message as other people did and/or make a better patch. Obviously you know how.

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
