Description:

A widget style for Qt4
- Pretty configurable
- More Mac than Windows - but no clone at all
- Don't ask me to port Baghira ;-)

As for what to do with GTK+ applications, have a look here:
http://arch-stuff.org/content/show.php?content=134123

It suites the default look pretty well. Set the "Default" titlebar background colors to 239/239/240 and the text to something dark/gray.

Thalics complete Bespin Guide is afaik still down, sorry :-(

sf.net should be fixed.

BOT:
"interesting" - anything special about kmail (bound preset, "--stylesheet" parameter for fonts etc.) on your side?

What happens if you add

FontOffset=0
FontExtent=0

to ~/.config/Bespin/Style.conf, [Style] section?

Report

Adding those lines appears to have fixed it.

However, there were no special settings for KMail, so it is strange that only KMail was affected.

Thanks, i fetched the font - gonna check what's weird about it (probably some outranging glyph)

Can you please try which one exactly? (coment them with '#')

There's a problem with the font metric calculation - I guess you'll somewhere have special font settings in kmail (eg. for the message view etc.)

Ideally, please try which font (some Script?) causes this (and where it's set) and share that knowledge.
Thanks

The font I'm using is TeX Gyre Heros

This font also has problems with the ktitlewidget hack, again because of font metric calculation issues. I "fixed" that by commenting out the code that changes the font size there.

It's FontOffset that fixed it

It's not because of special font settings in KMail, since the error also appears in toolbar buttons.

Hi Thomas,

There seems to be a problem with the spacing of the tabs when two or more are open. In particular, a big gap appears between the first tab and the left-most side of the tab-bar. To see what I mean just open dolphin and create two tabs.

I believe it is a bespin related problem, as it does not occur for example with oxygen.

Running latest revision and kde 4.9.4. Let me know if you need more information.

Is it, because the tabs are centered?
(What happens, if you make more tabs?)

Report

linuxfever

Hmm, you are right, I had not noticed that. If I open more tabs, then the gap gradually disappears.

Is there any setting where I can disable the centring of the tabs? Thanks

should not happen anyway, because dolphin is kind of a "document" tab (like browsers) but apparently the tabbar does not provide that hint.

There's no setting, but it's just a stylehint (so just unconditionally returning the left hint is not very hard)

Just tried latest revision and now there is no gap. Thanks!

Yupp, i "fix" the tabbar mode during polishment.
This should however maybe reported as (minor) but in dolphin (because documentMode is probably what they want in general)

Hi thomas,

I have been experiencing a weird problem. Everytime I boot into my KDE the kwin bespin decoration is not there (presumably it has crashed). If I go to a virtual console and restart kdm then everything is loading properly.

If I change the decoration to Oxygen then I no longer have this problem. I am using the latest bespin revision and KDE 4.9.2. Any help is appreciated!

Hmm, I just removed the build directory and recompiled everything from scratch; it seems to be working now, will post back if I experience the same problem again. Thanks!

Fixed that yesterday night.
Comes with recent threaded kwin start and a race on the selection owner to check whether the compositor runs.
Was a nice bug to track down (because there's absolutely no backtrace or other hint or deterministic behavior on this)

Sure you're on r1623?
http://cloudcity.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/cloudcity?view=rev&revision=1623

You could try raising the value from 250 to 1000

Ok, I will try and post back tomorrow. Thanks!

Yeap, changing the value to 1000 seems to have done the trick. Thanks for your help!

Yes, I am on the latest revision. What values are you referring to?

I'm using the Bespin deco with "base" set to flat and "deco" set to none. My titlebar color is set to black w/ a little transparency.

I really like this look, however the decoration visibility suffers a bit when positioned over a dark background.

Would you consider adding a window decoration configuration option that could be used to set a decoration frame outline width and color?

In my case, I would use it to set a 1px gray outline to delineate the outer window decoration edges.

There's a thin outline w/o compositing. With compositing you could utilize the shadow (use them as halo) and if you configure the deco hint to sth. that's not the Window role and set "None" as gradient you'll also get a border (if the edge and base sizes are > 0)

Does that fit your needs?
Otherwise please illustrate the faced issue with screenshot.

Thanks for the quick response.

I tried your suggestions, but wasn't able to achieve the result shown in the mockup.

I'm using the Bespin deco on its own (I really like the shadows, buttons, and border width controls) combined with Oxygen Transparent (unified GTK) . . . so I'm not sure the style hints would work in my case.

Screenshot without outline...

...the dolphin titlebar gets lost in the konsole window behind it.

Mockup with outline...
http://i.imgur.com/o4f5a.png
...there's a slight outline tracing the outer perimeter of the dolphin window.

I don't know if the Bespin deco was ever intended to be used on its own, but IMO, the addition of an outline option and maybe a border radius config would make it perfect.
