KDesktop transparency support

Minimum required   KDE 3.5.x

Submitted:  Jun 6 2007

Description:

This patch adds support for real transparency to kdesktop. It adds two new
composite manager related features. To activate the features kdesktop has to
be started with the "--bg-transparency" option.

The first one allows you to change the opacity of the background image. This
works currently with the beryl transparent cube and will also work with
compiz once the transparent cube gets applied. To activate the feature add
the following to your kdesktoprc:
[Background Common]
BackgroundOpacity=90 (0 = fully transparent / 100 = opaque)

The second feature allows compiz (and later maybe other composite managers) to
tell kdesktop not to paint the background image
("_COMPIZ_WALLPAPER_SUPPORTED" x atom). In this case compiz is able to paint
a viewport dependent background or to make it even animated. This feature
looks for changes to the x atom, so that kdesktop will automatically switch
back to normal background if kwin gets started or compiz stops to render the
wallpaper.

This patch is against the current kde3 svn.

Regards
Dennis

You need to checkout the current version of kdebase from svn://anonsvn.kde.org:/home/kde/branches/KDE/3.5/kdebase and apply this patch to kdesktop.

If you've never worked with sourcecode, you'd better first look for a tutorial about building your own packages.

Anyway, I can give some hints:

When you have the sourcecode, you can apply this patch with the patch command:
Go to the source folder, do:
patch -p1 < [location&name_of_patch]

then compile and install.

Patch applied cleanly against 3.5.7.
Transparent background works modulo some repaint problems.

However, how do you tell beryl to paint different wallpapers on each face of the cube? I don't understand.

different background per viewports are only available with compiz and the
compiz fusion wallpaper plugin.

Hi,
could you share a way how to get different wallpapers under KDE and Compiz-Fusion?

I can not find a tip anywhere.

Thanks in advance.

I gave a few tips in the following post on Gentoo Xeffects forums:
http://forums.gentoo-xeffects.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=495&p=2175#p2175

However, this does not explain how to patch the source as we are using some Gentoo specific way for doing this.

If you're happy to do so, you can download the source and apply the patch manually.

NB: "man patch" is your friend.

Yes, it works!
Thanks, I was missing the file: and :1.0 part in filename.

Finally, the friendship with "man patch" has payed off.

Yes the xeffects forums have been remade so my post doesn't exist anymore.

On Gentoo, there is an xeffects overlay that includes the patch. For more information, ask questions on the xeffects forums: http://gentoo-xeffects.org/forums/ in the relevant section. Thanks

 patch conflict

Hi, I'm just after patching kdebase to fix the screensaver issue (KDE screensaver only covers a portion of the screen). The result works fine except that your patch does not work anymore. Here is the patch (Ubuntu) if you want to have a look (when the wallpaper plugin is activated, the icon and screen menus disapear).

OK, forget about my previous post. The 2 patches are working fine. It the current git version of compiz that's broken.

Sorry about that.

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
