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

Here's the error I get when doing make:

Quote:
konsole_part.cpp: In member function 'virtual KParts::Part* konsoleFactory::createPartObject(QWidget*, const char*, QObject*, const char*, const char*, const QStringList&)':
konsole_part.cpp:83: error: cannot allocate an object of abstract type 'konsolePart'
konsole_part.h:70: note: because the following virtual functions are pure within 'konsolePart':
/usr/include/kde/kde_terminal_interface.h:167: note: virtual bool ExtTerminalInterface::setPtyFd(int)

I got the same error.

I managed to fix it (dont know if its the proper way of doing things, but)...

Edit the file:
/usr/include/kde/kde_terminal_interface.h

at the end of the file you have line (line number 167):
virtual bool setPtyFd(int master_pty) = 0;

Comment that line, compile konsole app, install it and then uncomment that line, couse I have no idea if other source requires that line.

Everything works great except now my menu options get screwed up once i hover over or use one of them. Does anyone have any idea about how to go about fixing this? Below is a link to a screen shot.

First of all congratulations on writing such a nice improvement for KDE!
This works great on my system (Gentoo + Xorg + AIGLX + Radeon Open Source Drivers + KDE 3.5.5).
It worked right out of the box on my machine.

Congratulations, I love this idea.

Other thing, I think it would me a good idea to put the .deb an user posted as comment, for many of us that makes the installations rather simple.

Anyway, nice work!

Are there any changes that need to be made for this to work properly on an amd64 system?

 Unneeded on Kubuntu

On Kubuntu 7.04, you can get ARGB transparency with Konsole when running a compositing window manager using:

konsole --real-transparency

You still need this patch however to remove the 1 px border.

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
