Hi Thomas,

I'm seeing a small issue with Dolphin under Bespin and I'm wondering if you see the same thing.

I have the UNO option enabled to include toolbars, window title, and sunken appearance. In the Workarounds section, I have the "Dolphin: unite iconview, url navigator, statusbar" option disabled. I'm using KDE 4.14.10 and the latest from sf.net.

With this configuration, it looks like Dolphin is attempting to draw the NW corner of the tabbar background when no tabs have been opened. The corner image is visible only when the navigation bar is not editable.

Please let me know if you need more information. - Sep 21 2015

Hi Thomas.

I know it's a long shot, but I just have to ask...

A long time ago, it was possible to add the "filter bar" text input box to the main toolbar of the old Konqueror file manager.

Currently with Dolphin, the filter bar opens below the icon view.

Is it feasible and/or desirable to add a Bespin workaround that would place a Bespin stylized filter input into the Dolphin toolbar?

Hi Thomas,

Is there a way to disable the window title text emboss/inset effect?

My window title text is 7pt #1D1D1D on a #9B9B9B window & the emboss effect muddles the active window title text a bit.

Would it make sense to combine the text inset effect with the "more traditional button" kwin option selection? I.E. When traditional buttons are selected, the inset effect would be enabled. Otherwise the text would be flat like the button icons.

Just a thought. Thanks much for your work!

Thanks for the quick response.

I tried your suggestions, but wasn't able to achieve the result shown in the mockup.

I'm using the Bespin deco on its own (I really like the shadows, buttons, and border width controls) combined with Oxygen Transparent (unified GTK) . . . so I'm not sure the style hints would work in my case.

Screenshot without outline...

...the dolphin titlebar gets lost in the konsole window behind it.

Mockup with outline...
http://i.imgur.com/o4f5a.png
...there's a slight outline tracing the outer perimeter of the dolphin window.

I don't know if the Bespin deco was ever intended to be used on its own, but IMO, the addition of an outline option and maybe a border radius config would make it perfect.

I'm using the Bespin deco with "base" set to flat and "deco" set to none. My titlebar color is set to black w/ a little transparency.

I really like this look, however the decoration visibility suffers a bit when positioned over a dark background.

Would you consider adding a window decoration configuration option that could be used to set a decoration frame outline width and color?

In my case, I would use it to set a 1px gray outline to delineate the outer window decoration edges.

I can't, but it looks like an rpm is available at the same location...

I have no idea if it works, though. I'm on openSUSE 11.4 so compiling was my only option.

Hope this helps.

I just updated to r1448 & picked up the new combobox widget display options. I'm using raised buttons & the option to match the combobox to the buttons is great.

I'm using sunken buttons in the toolbar & in cases where a combobox appears there (like with kates sql connections toolbar), it might be nice if the combobox could acquire the display settings of the toolbuttons.

I don't know if it's even possible, but just wanted to throw that out to see what you think.

Thanks! - Jan 01 2012

Is there still an option to add the little horizontal swipes to either side of the window title like in this screenshot: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Dolpher2?content=127545

I hope this isn't a dumb question, but I've looked all around & don't see the setting.

I have QtCurve config'd in a mac-ish style & give the same answer when asked why.

So... Would it be a bad time to mention a window titlebar issue I've noticed with the latest update? =P

It seems to be related only to GTK windows...

Gimp-2.6: Titlebar not visible on the toolbox window.
Google Chrome: Titlebar not visible on the "save file" dialog.
Inkscape: Titlebar not visible on the main window.

I have no idea how the shadow stuff is implemented, but it almost looks like an overlay is masking off the titlebar, where it looks like the titlebar opacity is 0% with the inactive window shadow drawn around it. The Qt stuff is working fine.

OpenSUSE 11.4 (x86_64)
NVIDIA 275.21
KDE 4.7.2
GTK 2.22

Let me know if you need more info.
- Oct 16 2011
Thank you for continuing to maintain QtCurve and for the shadow fix. It's great having the menu shadows back.

On a side note... You've mentioned a couple of times that you've switched over to the Oxygen style & I'm just curious why you made the change. - Oct 16 2011

First of all... Thank you very much for the great browser!

I have the task manager added to an auto-hiding panel. When I hover over the tooltip, the panel closes while the tooltip stays active.

It's no big deal at all, but would it be good for the panel to stay open while the tooltip is in use?

Takeoff

Plasma 4 Extensions by joseexposito89 185 comments

I'm running openSUSE 11.4 (x86_64) KDE 4.7

It compiles fine, but it looks like the install script tries to put the .so in the wrong place. On my system, the libs are in /usr/lib64/kde4/ . . . line ~24 in the installation script tried to put it in /usr/lib/kde4/.

After changing the path, the install script completed, but the plasmoid complains that it can't find the takeoff component.

It does run from the console using: plasmoidviewer takeoff

Hope this helps.

If I'm reading the output correctly, it looks like the problem is here:

The joined toolbar buttons look great! Thanks much for the update.

Since the update, though, google chrome is crashing with:

/usr/bin/google-chrome: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libqtcurve.so: undefined symbol: gtk_widget_get_state

I tried a different GTK2 app & it did the same.

In both cases, the crash occurred after the first click in the app. Chrome crashed on first click (which was a link). The other app (gnome-nettool) crashed when I clicked a tab.

I reverted QtCurve GTK2 back to 1.7.2 & the crashes went away.

System info:

Linux 2.6.27.54-0.1-default x86_64
openSUSE 11.1 (x86_64)

Let me know if you need more info. Thanks again for the update.

I think I understand... For buttons representing a toggled on/off state, you would lose the visuals representing the current selection.

I probably should have been thinking in terms of "etched" . . . but your separate config idea sounds nicer. - Nov 24 2010
I really like the look of the new joined toolbar buttons feature. Would it be possible to add a "sunken and joined" option . . . where the normal button state would look similar to the current "raised and joined" pressed button state? - Nov 24 2010

If I'm reading the output correctly, it looks like the Gtk2 style make is failing at line 3780 of qtcurve.c with error "'round' undeclared (first use in this function)".

Thanks for the great app. It compiled just fine on my system, however, I don't seem to be able to change the language. It stays in German regardless of the language setting I select . . . even after restarts.

Is there something else I need to do to switch it to English?

There are currently options to "add a light border" (QtCurve settings) and to "Draw dark outer border" (Win deco settings). Would it be possible to make these color selectors instead of checkboxes?

I'm trying to set up a kind of smoked glass appearance by setting the win deco background color to almost-black and then lowering the window decoration opacity. At these settings however, the light and dark borders come out a bit too dark.

Thanks again for the fantastic style & window decoration. - May 24 2010
Would it be possible to add an option to force the QtCurve window buttons to 100% opacity, regardless of the KWin translucency effect settings?

Something like that would allow for Aurorae-like visuals using the QtCurve window decoration:

With the recent update, I've had a couple of Gtk2 apps crash on me. It seems to be related to the option: checks and Radios > Color when selected. The crash occurs when the option is set.

The apps are:
MySql Query Browser (Table editor crashes)
Gimp (Colors > Levels crashes)

Let me know if you need more info & thanks again for your work! - Jan 07 2010
I'm not sure if this is by design, but when the window decoration is in "shaded" mode, it switches from (fully) rounded, to squared.

When it does this, it fills the upper left and upper right corners with the inactive window color . . . so the active, shaded window displays with upper corners colorized to the inactive titlebar color.

My current settings are: fully rounded, tiny border, don't draw dark outer border, color titlebar only, don't add a light border.

As always, many thanks for your work! - Oct 21 2009
On OpenSUSE, I added the following line to my ~/.profile file:

export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome

This tells OpenOffice to use the GTK widgets which look more consistent on my KDE4 desktop. - Aug 12 2009
Would it be possible to add a config option to adjust the amount of horizontal space between the top and bottom of the titlebar buttons/text?

I really like the QtCurve window decoration, but at my current resolution (1440 x 900), it looks a little big.

As always, thanks much for QtCurve. It's been my favorite for years & just keeps getting better. - Aug 07 2009
My Qt4 version is 4.4.3 - Jun 12 2009
Everything compiles fine except for the KDE4 style. If I'm reading the output correctly, the problem is:

All versions prior to 64.x compiled perfectly.

Please let me know if I need to provide more information & many thanks for such a great style.
