Description:

CONTENTS
1. Changed the plastik theme to draw a lighter line as listview branch.
2. Rounded selection in iconview (konqueror/kdesktop)*
3. A modern looking rubberband (gnome/xp semi-transparent style).*
4. Modified dialogs when in iconlist mode to highlight item on mouse over (mozilla-firefox).
5. Added a new konqueror sidebar look.
Idea from http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=17049
6. Now sidebar is saved per profile (bug 58580)
7. Fixed bug 88964 (Highlighting of files in Detailed List View does not
correspond to the area of activation).

Obs.: All patches are tested in kde-3.3.1/qt-x11-free-3.3.3 official
sources. I can't garantee that they will work in other kde versions.

* some patches are modified versions from the patches found in
http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-core-devel&m=107624741505943&w=2

GOOD NEWS
I started a thread in kde-devel mailing list to discuss the insertion of the patches in next kde release.
See http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-devel&m=109863377620287&w=2
Some of the improvements are already in KDE CVS.
I contacted trolltech and they are analyzing the patches.

TIPS
- To improve the performance of the rubberband try to enable the option
"RenderAccel" in your XF86Config file.
(sinve version 0.5.2 the rubberband performance is improved)
- To enable the new konqueror sidebar look add the line "SidebarStyle=1" in the file $HOME/.kde/share/config/konqsidebartng.rc in the group that has the same name of the profile you want to change:
For example:
[webbrowsing]
SidebarStyle=1

If anyone has more ideas (original ideas) to add to this patches, tell me and perhaps i will try to implement them.




Changelog:

v1.0.0: (2004-Nov-28)
* fixed bug with rubberband in iconview mode.
* added install instructions.

v0.5.5: (2004-Oct-31)
* fixed bug when new rubberband effect is disabled.

v0.5.4: (2004-Oct-31)
* added rubberband color cache (improve rubberband performance a little more). I can't do incremental patch cause i'm using the KDE CVS version now. The only file that was modified is kdelibs/kdefx/kstyle.cpp

v0.5.3: (2004-Oct-31)
* improved rubberband performance in iconview (now only the modified area is draw).
* fixed bug when drawing rubberband and right mouse button is clicked.
* added incremental patch. For those who are using version 0.5.2 just apply the patches found in dir patches-0.5.2.
Note: Only use the patches found in dir patches-0.5.3 if you are using version 0.5.2. Any doubt how to use this mail me.
* added TODO file. If you found any bug not in TODO mail me, and i will try to fix.

v0.5.2: (2004-Oct-26)
* fixed error in drawing the item background in konqueror detailed view mode when that is a background image set. You just need to recompile kdebase/konqueror/listview.

v0.5.1: (2004-Oct-26)
* fixed compile error in kdebase/konqueror/listview.

v0.5.0: (2004-Oct-25)
* a lot of cleanup and refactoring.
* fix bug in konqueror detailed view mode that made the alternate background lines draw incorrect (thanks to DarkLord to point this out).
* now no app will be affected by the patch for bug 88964.
* modified qt patches to kde ones so is more easy to get they accepted by kde developers.
* removed kdepim patch (no more necessary).

 Drawing Problems

Hi. After installing this I'm having problems with drawing the rubber band thing. It doesn't appear translucent and it doesn't go away after the mouse up event. How can I fix these problems so that it works properly?

Thanks.

What can I say? I haven't been this excited over desktop eye-candy since the days of Mosfet... although I've moved on to plastik since ;)

Great work, keep it up!

 File selection

 
 by shulai on: Nov 12 2004
 
Score 50%

Using the filename box to include files in the selection when using list mode is METAPHORITIS, and decrease usability.

When you choose list mode, you are choosing not thinking about files as physical objects, so the object metaphor is not applicable.

Furthermore, it makes harder to select files with short names, easier to miss some file out of the selection.

..hmmmmmmmmmmm sounds nice! As great as debian is, it makes u tend to just use the debs, and stop compiling; so u never get to see those add-ons and improvements...

Since andrunko didn't get around to add this yet here's the link to my debs of KDEbase, KDElibs and qt-x11-free with these patches:
http://www.deadhand.com/kde-debian/

There are all the debs that get build from those packages and you definitely don't need all of them - I have yet to sort out which ones are definitely needed and which ones aren't.

Common sense should help here though, since most probably won't need the doc or devel packages ;)


Another thing to keep in mind is that the kdebase version is 3.3.0a (with which the patches have been tested) and not version 3.3.1 that is only just now (short time after i build the packages) in debian unstable. So if that's what your're using keep a look out for the dependancies and keep in mind that apt-get upgrade will upgrade kdebase too :).

I will talk to andrunko about a better way to provide the debs in the future and maybe have a little repository for your convenience. But that's the future and depends on what KDE will do - if there's KDE 3.4 in two weeks (no, it won't) and it includes all the patches there's no need for such a repository, is it? ;)

For now I hope some of you can enjoy my packages - please note though that I won't be building new ones for about two weeks, so if something new happens here I'll see to it at the end of the month.

Cheers all,

Chris

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.
