True transparency for Konsole

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

 Great!

Wow! Good idea, finally. Though: It would be nice if you could include some kind text shadow since the text requires a better contrast for readibility if layered on top of other windows...

Hi,
yes, that would be pretty. Unfortunately I don't have enough time to work on that at the moment.

If you want to improve readability, you could try activating the blur plugin in Compiz/Beryl and using "blur full windows" or so.

 Yakuake?

Does this patch affect yakuake? Could it be applied to yakuake easily? That'd be cool.

Do u use Beryl? Then go the Beryl-Manager, Settings and go to the State-Plugin. In Window Opacity add "p:yakuake:70"

(u may have to restart)

Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

I have the same error as you do. One thing I notice is that I am using compiz, not beryl.

 Gentoo?

 
 by warriorness on: Nov 29 2006
 
Score 50%

I love this feature, but I run Gentoo, and the instructions seem to be intended for Apt users. What changes to the commands would I have to make to get it to work in Gentoo? Or, would it be possible to make an ebuild?

And another thing: where are these changes applied? It seems to me from the instructions that these changes are applied in /var/kde/whatever... Could I do it instead in /home/warriorness/.kde/whatever ? It seems to me that the changes would be overwritten with the next KDE update, and I'd like to keep them in ~/ anyway for consistency.

Never mind that last comment, I got it all worked out. Here's how you do it, fellow Gentoo users:

1) Don't be using the monolithic kdebase (kdebase-meta is fine) - as long as you can 'emerge -p konsole" without any blocks, you're good to go.

2) Install layman.

3) Add the 'xeffects-experimental' overlay.
# layman -a xeffects-experimental

4) Emerge konsole with USE="transparency".
# echo "kde-base/konsole transparency" >> /etc/portage/package.use
# emerge -av konsole


Alternatively, you could create your own overlay and patch the ebuild:

1) Make the overlay, and put the patch in the files/ directory.
# mkdir /usr/local/portage
# mkdir /usr/local/portage/kde-base
# cp -r /usr/portage/kde-base/konsole /usr/local/portage/kde-base
# cp /path/to/file/konsole-3.5.5-trans.patch /usr/local/portage/kde-base/konsole/files


2) Open the 3.5.5 ebuild with your editor of choice, and add to the end:
src_unpack()
{
kde-meta_src_unpack
cd "${S}"
epatch "${FILESDIR}/konsole-3.5.5-trans.patch"
}


3) Re-emerge konsole.
# emerge -av konsole

 KUbuntu 6.10?

Hi! Nice idea! I have a fresh install of kubuntu 6.10 and I'm really keen on a borderless, transparent konsole. I downloaded the deb file you provided. My new konsole is now borderless, but unfortunately the transparency doesn't work any more :( Any ideas?

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
