(It extends and is meant to replace "TextShadowEdit".)




Changelog:

0.3:
- Improved dialog.
- 4 presets are now available for the most common styles of shadow.
- You are now warned when the foreground and the background are
identical and produce an illegible result.

0.2:
- First public release

Just one word about the patch: I applied it on my SuSE 10.1 and it does nothing visible, harmful, whatever.

As for the ghost shadow, that can't be me. The module does nothing but setting options. It doesn't hack its way into KDE to do strange things. The "worst" is does is to talk to the desktop --through legal channels-- to warn it that the config has changed.

Aren't there problems with the icon labelled "Brow... something"? Have you already tried to move it to see if the ghost moves too?

And could you show me the [FMSEttings] section of your "kdesktoprc"? ($HOME/.kde/share/config/kdesktoprc) Once I'll be sure that there are only legal values, I'll guaranty you that I'm not responsible.

let me rephrase my prev post. i only applied the patch to suse 10.0
%if suse_version == 1000
%patch1
%endif

as for the ghost shadow. the label is "network browser". its truncated, but the shadow isnt. when i change something in this module the ghost disappear, but when i restart kde it appear again. i never said that you or this module is responsible, i only try to find whats wrong, because you obviously have better knowledge about this shadowing thing than me. i'll post the file when i'm home.

AFAIK, the values here are valid ones. Just one question: What have you done of the lines "ItemTextBackground" and
"NormalTextColor"?

Did you remove them because you thought it was useless to show the colors you use or are they actually missing?

We got a problem here. I don't know how that's even possible but two colors should appear in this section. And even if they are absent when the config is read, the module should write them when it saves back the config. It makes me wonder where your kdesktop picks the colors it uses. And, maybe, that explains your problem. *Maybe*...

First, look if the entries "ItemTextBackground" and "NormalTextColor" aren't present elsewhere in your kdesktoprc. If they are present, I'd say that it shouldn't be a bad idea to move them at the beginning of the FMSettings section. If they aren't present, add them.

ItemTextBackground=0,0,255
NormalTextColor=255,0,0

Launch the module. The preview should have red text with a blue shadow. Change the colors and apply.

After that, check that the entries have changed in your kdesktoprc and that the colors you chose have been applied of course.

I think that *should* kill the ghost shadow forever because *I think* that these missing entries "puzzle" kdestop.

Keep me informed. (Reply to one of my previous message in order that I'll be informed. I think we reached the maximum depth.)

refering to your reply on: 02/16/2007, 23:22.

it doesn't work. with or without ItemTextBackground & NormalTextColor the ghost shadow still appear everytime i restart kde. so now i just set the Lines of Text value to 2. then the ghost shadow dissapear for good :p
perhaps there's a bug in KDE or something (??).
the weird part is, the ghost only appear under the truncated "Network Browsing" label, it doesn't appear in other truncated label.
anyway, thanks for helping me out. and great module. as always rpms for suse v9.3, 10.0, 10.1, SLED 10, 10.2, and "Bleeding Edge" Factory are available in both my repos & KDE:Community repos. my site only contains for opensuse 10.2 i586.

Hi the program works fine on my openSUSE system.

Feature request:
Can you ad a option that the text will be on the right side of the icon?

Sorry but that's impossible. KDesktop has no option to change the position of the text of the icons.

You should propose it for KDE 4.

 Installation Problem

Configure went down swell, but during make I got an error saying I was missing libkonq.la

Is this file something I can put into my /usr/lib without messing anything else up and if so could someone send it to me?

Thanks, JC

This is a little text file, you can safely add it by hand next to "libkonq.so.*". BUT you should already have it. On "my" SuSE, it's part of the kdebase RPM. Maybe on your distro it's part of a devel package that you must explicitely install. That should be so if you don't have any ".la" files or very few of them with your KDE libs. Or else, it got erased during a filesystem repair and in that case, you just have to re-install it by hand from the same sources you got your KDE (same distro, same version).

Thanks, I picked up a devel package and got that part working, however now I'm missing -lXss in the /usr/bin/ld binary. I couldn't find any packages to help me out on this one. Any ideas?

According to what I found on my system, it's part of the Xorg libs: /usr/X11R6/lib/libXss.*

I think it's another problem of normal vs. devel package. "My" libXss.* belong to the xorg-x11-devel RPM.

I'm definitively not an expert about compilation failures but what I notice is that the used commands totally lack of any reference to X11 libs and includes. AFAIK this is not an option... ;-)

Check your "config.log". Mine says:

X_INCLUDES='-I/usr/X11R6/include'
X_LDFLAGS='-L/usr/X11R6/lib'
...
all_includes='-I/opt/kde3/include -I/usr/lib/qt3/include -I/usr/X11R6/include '
all_libraries='-L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/lib/qt3/lib -L/opt/kde3/lib '

What does yours say?

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

My X11 prefix is /usr, so my config.log lines are

X_EXTRA_LIBS=''
X_INCLUDES='-I.'
X_LDFLAGS='-L/usr/lib'
X_PRE_LIBS=''

I don't think tis will help too much...

May I ask a dumb question?

Where are the .cpp files for kshadowengine.h and ksahdowsettings.h? Or they aren't need?

No, no, no! If your X11 is in /usr your X_INCLUDES should be '-I/usr/include'. With '-I.', the includes for X11 will be search in the build tree... where there are definitively not.

I don't know why the X11 includes aren't found. Something is wrong. As a fix, you should try to add the option
--with-extra-includes="/usr/include" for ./configure.

As for the "missing" .cpp files, they aren't needed. They are to be found only in the build tree of KDE and it's not a requirement to have KDE sources on your harddisk to build Desktop Text Config. Lucky you! ;-)

Hi,

thank you again for replying.

Adding /usr/include to extra-includes didn't help here. Also added /usr/lib to extra-libs.

I've asked about the "missing" files because those lines:

.libs/textpreviewwidget.o: In function `TextPreviewWidget::cleanup()':
textpreviewwidget.cpp:(.text+0x47b): undefined reference to `KShadowEngine::~KShadowEngine()'

It seems I don't have the code for the destructor compiled here, or at least is not in "-lkdeinit_kdesktop -lkdeui".

Have any idea where the code should be?

I really want to install your module, as it looks very cool.


Thank you in advance,

Laerte.

i think i'm getting similar issues because running ./configure gives me : checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

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.
