Real Transparency for Katapult 0.3.1.4

Real Transparency for Katapult 0.3.1.4

Downloads:  763
Submitted:  Mar 27 2007
Updated:  Mar 27 2007

Description:

This patch enables real transparency support for Katapult when running a compositing manager (e.g Beryl, compiz, kompmgr).

To use it, uncompress the file and then run 'patch -p1 <realtransparency.diff' in the same directory as the sources.

e.g.
sources are extracted at ~/ so the directory ~/katapult-0.3.1.4 exists.

Using an open terminal application such as konsole, navigate to the directory containing the sources, in this case ~/.

$ cd (the directory)
$ patch -p1 <realtransparency.diff
$ cd katapult-0.3.1.4
$ cmake -DREALTRANSPARENCY=1 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$KDEDIR && make

Then install as root.

Known Issues:
This patch relies on the same code as konsole with real-transparency. As such it is subject to the same side-effects. On my computer this is manifested by the following behavior.
- white rectangular halo around system tray icon
- non-transparent menus with artifacts
- Faux transparency no longer works

(Sorry about the <'s above, have no clue how to put the less than sign properly)




Changelog:

0.3.1.4-r2:
- Added uninstall target for cmake

0.3.1.4-r1:
- Switched to cmake.
- Disabled fade transitions. There is no elegant way to enable fade transitions in Qt3.

This used to be a major part of my desktop before I started using Beryl, I looked everywhere for a fix to the transparency problem, and now I have finally found it!!

No prob. :) As soon as I fix the faux transparency I'll be sending it upstream so people won't have to download this patch anymore.

Hopefully they're working on the KDE4 version which should have native support for real transparency but its not in svn and I don't have access to the bazaar repositories.

According to Aaron Seigos blog, the plugins of Katapult will be merged with KRunner in KDE 4.

 alpha channel?

 
 by MaxAuthority on: Mar 27 2007

hi,

looks nice, but it would be better to use the alpha channel to only make the background transparent, but not the icon/text.

Hey thanks for the suggestion, that was the intention but somehow even the image that was blitted on top of the background had its alpha channel affected. I'm looking into it now.

Hopefully it'll be fixed in a while.

Do you use the set-plugin in Beryl/compiz?

when you set the opacity of katapult to 100% the background is transluent, but not the icons/texts :)

Have you tried playing a video while Katapult is running?

Faux transparency works well until the contents of the underlying windows change.

I've been a Gentoo user since the 1.4 days and I don't plan on shifting to Kubuntu so I really can't tell if real transparency is working there. Would be interesting to see the code though.

if it uses the same method as konsole-alpha, does this mean, it works only with ati cards?

because when i install konsole alpha on my nvidia-desktop it makes konsole and adept crashes instantly... on my ati-laptop it just works :)

I've been an nvidia user for several years now and it works just fine in my PC. :) Well, except for the known issues I listed.

 Two questions

 
 by Ekardnam on: Mar 27 2007

Hi,

Sounds great. However, I have some problems with the patch:

hans@localhost:~/program/kde/katapult$ patch -p0 <katapult-real-transparency.diff
[2] 867
bash: lt: command not found

[2]+ Stopped patch -p0
bash: ./katapult-real-transparency.diff: Permission denied

Please note that the 'katapult' directory contains all versions of Katapult I have, for example 'katapult-0.3.1.4'..

I use Slackware 11.0. Why can't I run the patch, and what do I need to install?

Another, unrelated question: how to fix transparency in Yakuake? I applied a patch, and then all Schema with a transparent background (faux) become transparent - with 0 % opacity, which is very annoying.

Patch: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135870

I use kompmgr with Nvidia. Thanks in advance.

hi,
the command line is:
patch -p0<katapult-real-transparency.diff
The &lt; means 'lower then' in html. It's accidently substituted here. It's not a command.

Gah, now I feel really stupid. Thank you very much!

The background is black in the beginning/end of the animation, but I guess I can live with that.

Now, if only I could get Yakuake to work...

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
