KWin drop shadow patches

KWin drop shadow patches

Link:  http://
Downloads:  5367
Submitted:  Apr 9 2003
Updated:  Aug 2 2003


These are patches against KDE CVS and KDE 3.1.3 to make KWin able to draw configurable drop shadows under any window--including windows with no window decoration, Noatun with K-Jofol skins, empty Karamba windows, you name it! Drop shadows for active and inactive windows can be configured separately. Drop shadows may also be enabled or disabled for each individual window.

The 0.6.x series is _much_ faster than the 0.5.x series, but still lags on windows with very complex shapes (like the Noatun skin in the 1st preview screenshot). Around 12 seconds on my PIII/800 in the worst case scenario (no cached shadow, low on memory, and CPU already under 100% load). Less than a quarter second in the best case.


- don't show Shadow item in menu when shadows aren't enabled globally
- gray out Shadow item in window menu when shadows are enabled globally but not for that type of window (i.e. if shadows are enabled but not for override windows, the Alt+F3 menu in KNotes will show Shadow as a grayed out menu item). As confusing as that description sounded, it may clarify things in the long run

- shadows can now be enabled or disabled for individual windows through the window menu (right-click on titlebar or Alt+F3)
- window-specific shadow enabled/disabled setting can be saved across sessions
- Client::setShadowed(bool) public function can be used to enable or disable shadows for individual windows
- fixed bug in KControl module where opacity may be shown as 1% less than what's in the config file
- slightly improved shadow gradient; very thin shadows are now more visible
- updated for KDE 3.1.3

Refer to the CHANGELOG file in the package for changes in older versions.

damn, I'm away from my computer for a week. I can't wait to get back home to try this new version out. I see you took my requests too from last time :) Hope they didn't give you too much trouble. Thanks again for the hard work and i'll let you know how it works, just in time too for kde 3.1.3 :)

First: Looks great! Nice job :)

It would be cool if the shadow got larger and weaker when you were dragging the window, as if you were lifting it up from the desktop.

I love the effect you created. However, I followed the instucts carefully, but the patch failed to apply properly. I had a lot of hunks fail. I'm running 3.1.4 compiled with konstruct. I applied the:
kdebase.kwin-kwin_shadow.patch to:
I'm wondering how I went wrong. Anyone have have any suggestions?

any chance of a new patch reflecting all the changes in kwin in kde-cvs. Right now i'm using 3.2 beta 1 from cvs, and the 0.6.3a patch isn't working.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
