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)

* 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).

 performance

how does the performance of the rubberband compare to the performance of the band in gnome. the gnome one had no performanceproblems at all for me, using fglrx driver though...

If it's slower, looking into how the gnome one works could perhaps optimize it a little.

 just a note

 
 by dec0ding on: Dec 19 2005
 
Score 50%

not that i don't like your improvement because it makes KDE looks more like XP but I wouldn't use it for other reason. It makes KDE at least 2 times slower. The mass-selection of files with the mouse cursor is slow as hell. Applications crash and I see unexpected behaivours...

So knowing the future of KDE, seeing KDE 4 screenshots, sorry to say but this is useless...honestly, no offence

 rounded selections

 
 by trisk on: Oct 20 2006
 
Score 50%

Judging from the screenshot, the changes for rounded selections in your patchset are the same as those shipped by Ubuntu, no?

They have jagged edges. I've attached the patch for anti-aliased rounded selections to the bug report/wishlist (I was going to create one earlier but wasn't sure if one already existed).

They are also available here:
http://trisk.acm.jhu.edu/kde/

Also, re: comments on speed/stability: I've not looked at the patchset, but presumably the rubberband changes are the same ones in the Ubuntu packages, and they are stable in practice, and fast where the Render extension for X is accelerated. If it produces crashes you probably miscompiled KDE.

I applied that patches, but my rubber band square was not filled. The round selection works for more than one icon (if I click in one icon it's was not round-selected).

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
