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14 Jul: the patch is in the CVS now, so the download is out of date until I 'll get around to backport it to 3.1 :)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

 kcontrol/kicker prob

After patching kdelibs and kdebase and compiling kdelibs compilation fails when compiling kdebase/kcontrol/kicker:

I did nm on bgsettings.o:
$ nm .libs/bgsettings.o |grep ShadowConfManager

U _ZN17ShadowConfManager3getERK7QString

Any help appreciated.

Hi,

Unfortunately, it looks like kicker control section has a link to background/libbgnd.la instead of kdeui/kdefx. Try going in kcontrol/background and do a "make clean all".
It should fix any problems.

I'd go recompile kdebase from scratch, but that's me :)

Cheers,

Laur

I'm not exacly a coder of all things QT/KDE (yet), but would it be possible to add this to the Qt/KDE font handling (globally) so that all/any programs could use it?

I would love to be able to use it in menus (transparent ones) and window titlebars.

Well, you actually can use it everywhere if you please, because the shadow algorithm & base is placed in kdefx. all you need is to look in kdesktop/kfileividesktop.cpp and see how the shadow is drawn. ...and copy the code into your one :)

Cheers,

 Doesen't fit in

Somehow, i don't think enabling shadows for icon text fits in well with Background, it would go etter in another place for appearence or desktop, maybe you should palce it in the same location as where you can configure the icon text.

In addition, I think you should remove teh background program of the configurationa dn jsut use the best one.

Also, a shadow opacity option would be nice.

Thanks!

BTW: I think shadowed desktop test should be default in KDE, it may not even need a configuration center, just sue the one they think is best, but it is definetely needed. I also think KDE needs a UI overhaul and greater simplification, roganization and more concise features. The features only used by 5% of users are just bloatware. Speed should also be increased =) GNOME is faster on my system.

memory Usage option IMo should eb removed, who really cares or needs this. Many people do not even know waht would be adequte, just pick the optimal. Anyway, again thsi should go in the same place wher eyou configure the text for your icons and this way it won't need a separate pop-up window or text color selector etc.

The only changes made by this patch are the "Use custom shadow colour" option and "Shadow type" option.

The text colour and memory options are both part of the unmodified Background Advanced dialogue in KDE CVS.

 Yup..

As Deciare mentioned, the changes are replacing the text background checkbox/button in the dialog box. Anyway, I think the change of shadow and high customisability of it should not be encouraged.

I'd rather have it hidden (as other feats in kde are) and per-distro set. Anyway, I don't think most users would configure the shadow type more than 1-2 times (if ever), especially because it requires to have the font configuration panel open as well (different shadows look better with different fonts and aliasing settings)...

Just my 2c :)

Hope you submitted your patch to the KDE developers so that we have this nice feature in future KDE releases.

If not, please do so. This is really an improvement. Please check also the KDE usebility website/mailinglist (http://usability.kde.org/).

Every KDE user should have this feature in the future.

so long,
red

 mdk9 install

 
 by hungsquirrel on: Mar 16 2003
 
Score 50%

I am a Mandrake 9 user. I can't get anything from this site to install because Mandrake puts its KDE files in a custom directory (I think it's /usr/share/mdk/kde but I'm not sure). When configure gets to the part where it checks for KDE, it can't find it because it's in a weird place. I have tried editing variables in the configure source to point to /usr/share/mdk/kde, but this has not fixed the problem. Any suggestions? If specifying the path of KDE is the way to go, what variable(s) should I change, and should I use /usr/share/mdk/kde as my path, or is it a different one?

Any help would be appreciated, as I can't install anything for KDE that is given in source. In case you couldn't tell, I'm a Linux newbie. Here's my output:

checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!

this patch is meant for the kde CVS. You can find all the information on how to install the CVS along with the default installation on kde.org (download source - installing 2 kde instances on the same system).

If you need more info, e-mail me instead posting a message :)

Cheers,

Laur

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
