Workspace-Strap Effect

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by KAnton 122 comments


Thanks for the great plugin ... really nice.

2 things only :

make a easy way of switching , maybe by clicking on the desktop with the middle button and dragging the desktop ( kinda like android swiping )

mouse button scrolling : kinda like scrolling on normal windows with the mouse wheel. for example , if on vertical mode and i would scroll the wheel down while cursor is on desktop , the strap would move 5% or 25 % ( configurable ).

another good way would be for example , while the plugin is showing the strip , flipping mouse to the left would move the strip to the left :)

you should contact the kwin dev's about this plugin. its really nice. I much prefer this idea than the "static virtual / abstract " virtual desktops we have now :)

congrats - Nov 12 2011
bespin transparent

Be-Shell/Bespin by yagami 6 comments

actually i cannot :) i wasnt using emerald, its kwin.

it is oxygen-air kwin decoration, i think. - Nov 04 2010
dude :) you rule :)

thanks thanks , just perfect :)


thanks for allowing konsole to have a blank background gradient ( to blend with the translucent background ) and other apps to have the stippled affect. really love it :)

thanks :)

kde is just beautifull :) - Sep 14 2010
nice :)

it will be a crazy really good looking style :) cant wait.

also another bug :

my konsole kwin deco doesnt seem to follow the opacity settings ( main background is at 70 % but kwin deco's are fully opaque )

thanks for the really great style :) - Sep 13 2010

thanks for qtcurve :)

from the changelog , shouldnt the kwin decoration also follow the background style ?

i am getting this :

( the kwin decoration is not stripped )

thanks - Sep 13 2010
bespin transparent

Be-Shell/Bespin by yagami 6 comments

i will try, i dunno if i still have it.

i only used bespin for a few days, i then switched to qtcurve.

thanks - Sep 01 2010
qtcurve transparent

KDE Plasma Screenshots by yagami 4 comments

the customization is done who you would like.

the important thing for this look ( transparent ) , is to enable background transparency to the same value as the window manager borders transparency ( i use around 80% )

other settings are mainly using the aqua theme , i think.

the thin line, if i think i understand what you are meaning, is a bug on qtcurve 1.5.1. i already reported it to the dev :)

you can enable "draw dark outer border" on window manager windeco as a work around.

also , the window manager is kwin, not emerald

thanks :)

by the way , you can try mixing it with the windeco "aurorae -> air-oxygen". also looks very good

:) - Jul 11 2010

Be-Shell/Bespin by thomas12777 1663 comments

i am using kwin with aurorae.

actually , you can use any bespin theme ( transparent or not ), and any aurorae theme.

at first it didnt also happened. but i tried to change aurorae border size settings and it started to happen.

now it always happens.

it doesnt happen with qtcurve though ( i mean if i use qtcurve + aurorae )

thanks - Jul 11 2010
yes, but i mean if you want to have smplayer with transparency.

i for one am testing it with it and working fine.

also amarok is working fine.

so far so good - Jul 09 2010

i will send it asap

i havent tried it right now, but i am pretty sure it didnt happen with bespin. ( since i was using bespin before trying out qtcurve )

by the way , kopete is the only app that does this , and freezes all plasma.

thanks :) - Jul 09 2010
smplayer will work fine if you set it to "use own video window"

it will make it play video on another window though

hope it helps :) - Jul 09 2010
sure : :)

see here :

there is a little white line just below the titlebar and above the toolbar.

see here for after the "dark outer border" option fix :

thanks for the style :) i really love how my kde looks now :)

by the way , is there problems with using transparent windows ? besides the embeded video players windows ?

also , is it normal for kopete to take almost 1 minute to startup when using bespin xbar ? is there a qtcurve xbar ?

thanks :) - Jul 09 2010
oops , dammit , after hours searching, 1 minute after posting this i found out how.

just enable "draw dark outer border" .


thanks for the great style :) - Jul 09 2010

i am trying out your style , using it with the background transparent.

unfortunatly , when using window deco borders, the titlebar ends vertically with a misterious white line.

if i select no borders, the white line is gone.

is there a way to remove the white line ?

thanks - Jul 09 2010

Be-Shell/Bespin by thomas12777 1663 comments


i am testing bespin with aurorae window deco.

dunno why, using oxygen or another toolkit style doesnt happen, but when using bespin , aurorae deco looks like this :

is this a bespin bug or aurorae ? it only happens with bespin.

thanks :) - Jul 09 2010
kwin glide effects

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by yagami 20 comments

Well , this effect / patch is now obsolete, since kwin in KDE 4.5 will feature a glide effect similar to this.

so ... happy gliding in KDE 4.5 :) - May 15 2010
kwin glide effects

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by yagami 20 comments

hum, sorry i cant be much help, but that seems like a cmake problem , not something related to my patch.

do you have cmake 2.8 ? - Mar 17 2010
Fancy Tasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by Emdek 570 comments


the new feature of only showing the shortcuts seems to work very well , and really usefull.

however , i had to stop using fancytasks because my .xsession-errors was getting filled with :
QPainter::worldTransform: Painter not active
QPainter::begin: Widget painting can only begin as a result of a paintEvent
QPainter::translate: Painter not active
QPainter::setClipRect: Painter not active
QPainter::hasClipping: Painter not active
QPainter::setPen: Painter not active
QPainter::setBrush: Painter not active
QPainter::drawRects: Painter not active
QPainter::hasClipping: Painter not active

in one hour , i would get a 30 Megabyte .xsession-errors being 99 % those messages.

also , could you make it a option the centering code ? since its not centering correctly, i guess its better to do it by hand

thanks - Feb 05 2010
Fancy Tasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by Emdek 570 comments


thanks for the plasmoid ,its very nice :)

however, there are just two features that would really make it fit for my workflow

* could you make it so that its always properly aligned to a place in the screen ? for example , always be aligned in the bottom middle.

* could you make it so that only the shortcuts are "task" aware ?
maybe doing the shortcuts turn into an task button, or
create a task area that only shows the currently added shortcuts.

i would like this , because i use fancy tasks in the desktop , in each activity.

so it would be cool if my multimedia activity would only show multimedia shortcuts and tasks.

thanks :) - Feb 01 2010
kwin glide effects

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by yagami 20 comments

i think i can "squish" it to where ever you want me to :) but i dont see how it would work :) just because you open a document , doesnt mean there is a folder on the desktop for it.

and an application , to what folder would you squish it ? or where to send it ?

for minimize its easy , just send it to proper place of taskbar. but for open and close i tried to imagine it appearing and disappearing from "the horizon"

i did tried to make this usable , not just eye candy. like for windows appearing, they would be bigger ( as to the user really notice the new window , even if a small one )

i guess this was what i though ideal , but there might be better ideas out there - Jan 19 2010
kwin glide effects

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by yagami 20 comments

i have talked with kwin developers alot. they are very nice people :)

i think the code follows their style. i guess its just a matter of trying to see if they include it for 4.5

i might also try to improve this and other effects , or also create new ones. it depends as how this is accepted and if i have any good ideas :)

for 4.4 it was impossible :)

shameless plug for gentoo but , since i run kwin-4.4.9999, its like if they were included ( since my svn is patched :) ) - Jan 19 2010
kwin glide effects

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by yagami 20 comments

i guess you can either wait for next RC2 or kde 4.4 final , or do a svn up for 4.4 branch.

dont really want to backport it, since the change made to kwin after 4.3.90 made effects work much better together.

Really :) if you can do a svn up ( or just get a tarball of latest kwin from svn branch of 4.4 ) it will be better - Jan 19 2010
Gaia 09 (Aurorae)

Plasma Window Decorations by jmtodaro 19 comments

very nice theme.

i am guessing its impossible yet for aurore themes to have a black border between the window decoration and the window contents.

it would look much better, in my opinion.

thanks - Aug 03 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by Lechio 574 comments

by the way , could you make the preview size adjustable ?

and could you make the preview replace the daisy icon ? that would be handy , for people like me that have huge daisy icons

thanks - Jun 02 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by Lechio 574 comments

wow :) i am amazed when i looked at your screenshot :)

you have the same wallpaper as one of my activities :)

and ... you are from lisbon ... well , i am in leiria :)


cool plasmoid ... if i ever see you i'll buy you a drink :) - Jun 02 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by Lechio 574 comments

hi :

**** Number of instances drawn on icon looks ugly, I've tested that idea in my applet already. It's better to draw multiple indicators (for example maximum five "lights"). ****

well , this would be cool. i also though of this but maybe it should be limited to the size of the icons ( smaller sizes maximum 2 indicators, bigger sizes 5 indicatoes )

**** And maybe it's better to use Shift modifier to open new instance (as I've did in Fancy Tasks) and use middle click for another action (for example fast close). ****

this i dont think so. it would be weird to know what window to close. windows are easier to close in their normal way, and noone want to close windows by mistake. also it would be bad to have to use the keyboard to launch another instance. it should be easy and without keyboard use to launch another instance , since there are apps ( like konqueror or dolphin , etc ) that are normal to use multiple instances.

thanks - May 17 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by Lechio 574 comments

thanks for the great plasmoid. i am using it alot on my desktop :)

just some ideas that would make my usage of daisy complete :

* systray integration : by this i mean an app that is closed to the systray showing some kind of notification ( maybe a black notification below the app icon ). if the app is on the systray , clicking on it would open the instance opened on the systray.

usage example : quassel : if its closed to the systray, it would have a black indicator below it. clicking on the quassel icon would then open that session on the systray , and not another instance.

* notifications would show the number of open instances.

usage example : if i have two konqueror windows open, it would have a "2" next to the indicator

* multiple tasks drawer would always show on top and with previews of a specified size.

usage example : clicking on the konqueror window with 2 or more windows open , would show a drawer with the preview of the window at a specified size ( for example 256 width size , i like big previews :) )

* middle click would always open a new instance.

usage example : imagine i already have a konqueror window open. if i quickly want to open another konqueror window, i would just middle click on the daisy icon.

thanks :) - May 17 2009

disabling the tab tansition seems to do the trick.

so disabling tab animation fixes it.

i am not using nvidia , btw, but intel gma

Be-Shell/Bespin by thomas12777 1663 comments

as requested :) - Jan 30 2009

Be-Shell/Bespin by thomas12777 1663 comments


whenever for example in , i open a second konqueror tab and switch to it, the toolbar gets messes up.

it looks like the banners go onto the top of the toolbars.

if you want i can do a screenshot.

thanks for the theme :) - Jan 30 2009

Be-Shell/Bespin by thomas12777 1663 comments


the only thing i changed on the desktops were the kde style ( no plasma theme or any other change )

oxygen :

bespin :

notice the activity bar in the vertical panel at the left.

thanks - Jan 29 2009

Be-Shell/Bespin by thomas12777 1663 comments


thanks for the theme :)

could xbar have an option to disable the window list in xbar when no application has focus ?

thanks - Jan 29 2009

Be-Shell/Bespin by thomas12777 1663 comments

it seems bespin style removes the activity bar plasmoid transparency.

could it have transparency like in the oxygen theme ? bespin currently makes it very very ugly - Jan 29 2009

the font is Droid Sans with hinting and subpixel

thanks - Nov 27 2008

Plasma 4 Extensions by mherbert 196 comments

great plasmoid ! thanks

two ideas :

how about a feature of sorting ? specially being able to sort it by date ?

also , how about supporting more than one folder (the same plasmoid having more than one start icon)? if you use it on the panel, you can just use alot of quick access plasmoids, but if you use it on the desktop its very hard to keep alot of quick access plasmoids aligned. - Jul 11 2008
Weather Plasmoid

Plasma 4 Extensions by rowancompsciguy 127 comments

Plasma Themes by ivancukic 14 comments

thanks :) - Jun 28 2008
Penguin's Paradise 2

Wallpaper Other by xactive 15 comments

what is the problem with having the images on this webpage ? even if he has adds ?! good for him.

stupid ppl in this world.

open source and free world is not working for you for free and having to give you all for free.

if he makes the images , better for him if he receives something for it.

of course , if he updates the images just to get clicks , that is a little stupid. - Feb 07 2007

kde 3.5 + beryl

KDE Plasma Screenshots by yagami 10 comments

its an option on latest beryl svn ( from trunk )

you can configure transparency while rotating and when stopped. - Nov 23 2006

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by tipote 67 comments

using the latest beryl , one can set the desktop option to 4.

then , kde detects all 4 desktops ( alowing even to set diferent wallpapers for each one )

the only thing missing is switching desktops.

for this , your pager works, but has some issues.

could you please work on this, so that its usuable ?! ( one could have four cubes , for example ) - Nov 22 2006

KDE 3.5 Themes by Maxilys 252 comments

well , i love your theme , it makes my kde desktop look really awesome.

but , the menu groove and the toolbar handles really mess it.

i have reverted back to version 1.2 , because i like my windows to have a soft while look , not with vertical grey bars ( the toolbar handles ) or with a long horizontal grey bar ( like the menu groove.

anyway , thank for the great style, kde is really nice with it

PS : also , i have to always delete the rubberband case each release. how about importing the rubberband from kde perrty ? - Oct 05 2006
