kde 3.3 + x.org 6.8 = transparency :)

KDE Plasma Screenshots by terra 7 comments

I have a 700Mhz/256Mo and a Geforce2... With the driver Nvidia with Render activated it's great!! Fast !!!.. But only with transparency, now with shadow or others options the speed radicaly decrease.
When I drag fast full screen windows I can see that the window is 1/3s late that my mouse WITH OR WITHOUT TRANSPARENCY because drawing is now doing by client/xcompmgr. So transparency is fast (with NVIDIA/RENDER driver). But the xcompmrg is less fast that all in server. OH

HO AND I AM IN 1600x1200... so xcompmg is great, fast enough !!

But some artifact with KDE persists, sometimes widwows are not paint (like minimize windowd to show only handler and come back, konsole fullscrenn and come back...).

DAMAGE (like uncover) ARE VERY VERY SLOW !!!! but becausse the RENDER driver don't support resize, so the resize it make by client. But I have modify uncover to don't scale (1:1) and show only one windows and with this I can't view 1 Mplayer and one Uncover duplicate OR 20 AMAROK UNCOVER DUPLICATES !!!!!! so DAMAGE IS FAST TOO ;-) that's aim !! but resize is slow ! sometimes with mplayer and uncover X crashs...

EXTENSIONS ARE GREAT AND IMPLEMENTATION IS NOT SO BAD ! ;-)

Go to freedesktop and test the 903 ;-) - Aug 30 2004

Hi,

You can watch to "uncover" apps from xapps. It works like kompose. Light, Powerfull, Real time, work perfectly on 700Mhz ;-) But it only works with DAMAGE/COMPOSITE/XFIXES ;-(. You can use it with Xserver. Now "uncover" works to see in thnumbmail all apps and the apps together. Don't scale the thunbmail and mask the apps and you have your Kompos - Aug 08 2004
