ShadowFade at logout

ShadowFade at logout

After you didn't really like my last logout-effect (the XPish one) I wrote a cool mixture of the native KDE-logout-effect and the XPish-grayfade-effect. That means when clicking at logout, something like a shadow is falling over your desktop. Looks really cool and is damn fast! (this is why I didn't implement inline-MMX-assembly)

Hope you enjoy it!

Addition: I had also another idea for logout-effect: I'd like it, if the desktop would be blurred until it's completely unsharp after 5 seconds or so. The problem is, that a smooth blurring isn't practicable even on modern CPUs...


- added KPixmapIO as class-member, so that there have to be no local/temporary instances every time, the screen is updated -> small speed improvement

- upload of working patch... :-)
- code-cleanup
- small speed-improvements
- increased fade-out-time to 5 seconds (were 4 seconds before)

- first release

 About blurring

It would be quite cool and cpu friendly to make a simple blurring effect to this. Just make cpu calculate a blurred image of the current desktop, and then let the blurred image follow the black&white fade effect. Nobody would really notice anything if the border of the original and the blurred image was faded (cross-fade, not real blur).

That would be my question also.

I know the ubuntu/KDE people probably want to include your effect by default in the next release of ubuntu/KDE edition. I'd say go for this one (if you can persuade them) as this looks best. you'd first have to get this working with KDE 3.4 (which is released, officially, btw).

 slow on PPC

I just applied your patch, modified for KDE 3.4 (content=22557) on PPC and it's sloooow. ;-)

Is this just a PPC problem or would I need an accelerated X with DRI & Co?

Hi, saw this idea and wanted to try it out. I have downloaded the diff file, but I'm not familiar with what to do to apply the changes to KDE. (ex: How to recompile those particular files, etc.)

I'm a programmer, but haven't delved too deep into compilation in linux aside from my own work so this is a little new to me.

Thanks in advance for your help and if you can give me detailed enough instructions, I would be glad to write you up a document that you can provide to users as every program should have that. At least then I would be using my technical writing minor, haha.

Thanks again,

Looks great! I like it more than the blur actually (or the combination blur/shadow). It would be cool if this was the default for KDE, IMHO.
Awesome work!

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.
