Description:

Force Blur

A KWin script to force-enable KWin Blur effect on user-specified windows.

This is more useful than shell script hacks, because KWin script receives event notification and window info from KWin. This can also fix tray-based apps, which loses blur hints when restored from system tray.

System Requirement

  • Operating System:

    • (K)Ubuntu 18.10 or newer
    • Fedora 29 or newer
    • Arch Linux - kwin 5.14 or newer
  • Make sure you're using "Blur" desktop effect, which can be enabled through System Settings.

  • This script internally calls xprop command, which would be already installed on your system.

  • X11 display server (the script does not support wayland applications)

How to Use

  1. Install the script.

  2. Run the following in terminal, to enable script configuration:

     mkdir -p ~/.local/share/kservices5/
     cp ~/.local/share/kwin/scripts/forceblur/metadata.desktop ~/.local/share/kservices5/forceblur.desktop
  3. Open Kwin Scripts page in System Settings.

  4. Enable Force Blur script by checking the checkbox next to it.

  5. Change script settings. Note that the script can only match with window classes.

  6. Click OK to enable the script.

  7. Whenever settings are changed, you must disable and re-enable the script.
    (Uncheck -> Apply -> Check -> Apply)

You can use `xprop` command for that. Run `xprop | grep CLASS` on Konsole, and click the window of your interest. The class name of the window will be printed on the terminal.
