Depends on  KDE 3.5.x

Submitted:  Nov 6 2006

Description:

A fix for one of the most annoying missing features in KDE. This patch brings true transparency (with Xgl/Beryl) to Konsole. And as a bonus, it removes the 1 pixel border around the window, so that you can embed the console in the desktop.

To be fair, I have to admit that the transparency code was already there, I just activated it and fixed the 1-pixel-border-bug. (I consider that a bug because earlier versions didn't have that border, and it's rather ugly.) So be careful, this patch could have some unexpected side effects, otherwise it would be active by default.

Installation:

* get kdebase source (tested with 3.5.5, but could work with other versions, no guarantee)

* in source directory, do:
patch -p0 < konsole-3.5.5-trans.patch
./configure -C --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
cd konsole
make
make install

Installation for Ubuntu/Debian:

* Get apt-build:
sudo apt-get install apt-build

* Get kdebase sources:
sudo apt-build source konsole

* Go to sources and make user-writeable:
cd /var/cache/apt-build/build/kdebase-3.5.5
sudo chown --recursive (your username) .

* run configure:
./configure -C --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`

* if configure fails, you have to install some developer packages, e.g. if it complains about missing qt headers:
sudo apt-get install libqt3-mt-dev

* apply patch, compile and install
patch -p0 < konsole-3.5.5-trans.patch
cd konsole
make
sudo make install

 eterm ?

well, i did not try it, just looked at the screen shots and your description. Since eterm can be switched frameless and into complete pseudo-transparency (duplicating background), I was wondering if that was possible with XGL, too.

 This is tight

Worked perfect except for the chown command. I got "chown: missing operand after (username). I added "konsole" after (username).

Thanks

 Nice, but...

To be honest, I actually like the "not real" transparency. The reason is, the Konsole uses my wallpaper as the background for the terminal, which looks nice and clean as a background for all that text. If it used "true" transparency, it would overlay the terminal text on top of windows, icons, etc, which would make it uglier and harder to read. So... :/

I very much agree. I like the konsole background to be the desktop wallpaper. But it should update as I move the konsole window, which it doesn't in a standard KDE.

 Beryl settings?

 
 by tets on: Nov 6 2006

IMHO, this is possible in Beryl directly: in the "Beryl-manager" go to the "Set Window Attribs by various criteria" then in "Window Opacity" create new rule (Add) like this - "c:Konsole:80". Now every new Konsole window starts with 80% opacity.Works for me, Beryl version 0.1.1-0ubuntu2, KDE 3.5.5.

Sorry, but this has nothing to do with the patch you can download here. Making Windows transparent in Beryl, makes the whole window including menus and decoration transparent. Here just the Konsole-Textframe gets transparency. IMHO a cool effect, which is ATM supported only by urxvt (Nice little xterm-replacement).

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
