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14 Jul: the patch is in the CVS now, so the download is out of date until I 'll get around to backport it to 3.1 :)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

 excellent! and a Q

Excellent work. As soon as I finish emerge on kde (gentoo), I will test out the feature.

I do have a question though. What are you using for your theme in the screenshots? I really like it. Very clean, straight to the point -- exactly how I like my desktop.

Sorry to bring up the documentation issue again, but I just downaloaded your package. There appears to be no information in the README file when I untarred the package. All of the installation documents that I could find appear to be generic docs.

 Desktop "plugins"

 
 by lucher on: Jun 17 2003

Hi
I saw that you are able now to start apps that draw direct onto the desktop.

I'm not sure about detailed K technology, but it would be awsome to be able to implement that wonderful wave effect from enlightenment. The problem I see is that until KDE 3.1 the desktop ist not the whole screen, but the area between the kicker bars.

Example: if you program a wave effect it should be drawn eg. at the bottom (on the same "height" as the kicker bars maybe) Problem: the K-"desktop" starts above the kicker panel. On its (the kicker's) left and right site the wallpaper is shown but only to emulate it - not to work (try it by yourself - popup a desktop menu). That means: If the wave effect would be a part of the kdesktop it would be shown above the kicker where it is not supposed to be.

Question: Does your patch replace that "hack" by a "stable" implementation? Maybe you will do so in the future?

Thanks for reply.

Hi,

To be honest, I think you should have placed the message in the general discussion list. My patch doesn't really deal with this kind of things. It's just ammending the way things are drawn on the desktop (which is a sort of iconview...)

 Noticed that myself

I noticed that myself about the background and kicker. Even in 3.1, it seems to be hacked in a way to make the menus popup, as that region still isn't "Just like the desktop". For instance, I set my wallpaper usually just by dragging the image from konq to my desktop, then using the popup "set as wallpaper" option. This is not possible in 3.1, although I think it has been resolved in CVS (I just formatted and am actually compiling KDE CVS now, or I would confirm).

Anyone who wants such improvements as shadowed text should visit this bug report and vote for it:

But that bug is about stuff like the drop shadows from Nautilus.

And the drop shadows in Nautilus are NOT drop shadows.
It's just the same string drawn twice with different offsets, no blending, no interpolating, no nothing.
(that's why it doesn't make the text stand out, something the patch in this topic does do, which is good)

I also would love a patch against 3.1.2, instead of the cvs. Thanks.

There is a simple(r) way out:

kdelibs should patch with kde 3.1.x without problems. Then libkonq and kdesktop should patch cleanly too. The only bit is the frontend which is different in 3.1 series. ...and i'm working on that :)

Then, theoretically, you should be able to use the config file generated already in 3.2 :)

Yes, please backport it to KDE 3.1.2, this patch makes the desktop look great and I'm sure a lot of people are not running CVS and would love to have this patch :) Many thanks.

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
