CDE icons

Icon Sub-Sets by arenyart 9 comments

Please make that icon set complete!

It remebers me to my beginning with linux - fvwm or fvwm2 with icons like yours...

It was so nice to leave that ugly windows 98 folder (and other) icons
behind.I can remember the nice package icons of the Redhat rpm manager :)

Today everything is so 100% designed and almost blue - more like windows. So the good old icons and CDE style is refreshingly different. It gives the good feel to have something special - a real "expensive" unix workstation... :)

I hope we all can rediscover the beauty of the good old days... - Mar 07 2006

Perhaps you could simulate an old tv set!

Can you remember it?
When you switched off the very old tv sets, they faded out slowly and and last you could see a glowing spot in the middle (some color tv sets showed this spot in every color).

That would be new and more 'action' as the Xp effect :) - Jan 03 2005

Search bar improvement

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by oliverthered 16 comments

Not exactly the IE approach.
In IE you can't choose your search enging (am i right?).

If you accidently hit the enter button without a protocol in front (ftp://,http://) it gives you an error message which is more annoying than a search with your favorite search engine.

Only my opinion.
But in general an improvement would be to loose that extra (space robbing) search bar. - Nov 16 2004

Search bar improvement

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by oliverthered 16 comments

improvement.

Personally i never used the extra searchbar because i use gg: and so on, since it is there.

But what happens quite often to me is, that:

I type (or paste) something in, and if i forgot to type gg: or anything else in front of the term, i get an error message.

Much better would be your idea.It would "centralize" the work with search terms and web locations.

I could paste something in and only hit enter.That could use one default search engine like google or any else.Your
arrow gives all choices for other than the default.


Good idea! - Nov 16 2004

From my pov there is too much transparency.It destroys the overall look and readability.

Nicer xorg 6.8 shadow

Various Stuff by manor 17 comments

They last version of your modification to xcompmgr works exactly the way i want.
Now the visual effect of having a 3D Desktop
is very much improved.

First i didn't realized a big difference.That must have to do that i didn't restart X after playing around with some xcompmgr values
on my own.That playing must have screwed something in memory so that i really noticed it now.

Very cool !

Thanks. - Sep 13 2004

Nicer xorg 6.8 shadow

Various Stuff by manor 17 comments

Same problem here.
RenderAccel brings a lot but resizing
is a pain.

But we have to see the future:
All great new features in kde, the kernel or anything else under linux got big improvements after a year or so. I mean after that time most things are nearly perfect then.

With Xorgs speed i think we can expect drop shadows become much better in a few months (half a year).

At this time we can be glad what we have: Nicer and bigger shadows as Windows :) - Sep 12 2004
Nicer xorg 6.8 shadow

Various Stuff by manor 17 comments

I think that the software solution by
Deciare was the best looking
http://kdelook.org/content/show.php?content=5638

Sure shadows in hardware is the future.I hope that it will soon improve in terms of speed, stability and visual quality.

It would be good if the speed of xcomposite on various graphics adapters can be the same of the nvidia ones.

I put my Matrox away and now a Nvidia is in my pc.As soon as speed of the Matrox (xcomposite) is on par with the Nvidia i will swap them again.

What i notice all the time:
Nvidia drivers sucks! Although this is xorgs first stable release i didn't have one crash with the Matrox but countless crashes with the Nvidia :(
I don't think this has to do with xorg because i had a lot of hard lockups with Nvidia cards in the past with Xfree. - Sep 12 2004
Nicer xorg 6.8 shadow

Various Stuff by manor 17 comments

I have high quality screenshots of OSX and could send you a screenshot of default Panther drop shadows.

There it seems that the light source would be from top so that there is no shadow on the window decoration.

The biggest improvement would be the different layers so the direction is an aspect of personal preferrence. - Sep 12 2004

Thanks a lot for Baghira !

foundation-stone (in some way) for Baghira.But what you did with his Liquid is overwhelming !

Baghira has nothing to do with Liquid anymore.When Mosfet is a genius, then what are you Thomas ? You are a c++ wizard of the highest levels.There is no border that you can't break.

Thanks a lot to Thomas - a real mastermind of c++ coding !
Yes also a lot of kudos go to all the other Linux, KDE coders but i wanted to thank especially Thomas today. - Sep 12 2004

KWin drop shadow patches

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by Deciare 134 comments

Can anybody tell me how to resume interrupted rpm processes ?
Then i could provide the kdebase rpm with shadows for SuSE 9.0

Yesterday i patched SuSE kdebase src package and tried to build a rpm with
rpmbuild -v -ba ...

After some unsuccessful attempts to build it (all because rpmbuild missed something), i
only did an make in the (from rpmbuild) unpacked sources. It resumed and now i have my shadows here :)

After that i did 3 more attempts to build the rpm i ask for help.
I don't want to restart the rpmbuild with -ba because then it deletes kdebase and starts from zero :(
With my pc that takes some hours.

How can i resume an unsuccessful rpmbuild ?
I ask only for othe SuSE user because for me the shadows here work so i don't need the rpm anymore ... - Feb 07 2004

KDE 3.2 CVS - Aqua

KDE Plasma Screenshots by phantomas 12 comments

First of all - a very nice shot. There are only little things that let me know that this is a kde desktop :)

My question. I see you use a round window decoration with perfect shadows even around the bottom corners. In earlier versions of some drop shadow patches you saw an ugly cross in the bottom corners.

You mentioned all what you used to make this shot. Did you use any shadow patches, or is that what we can expect from kde 3.2 cvs now ? Perfect macos like shadows for windows and shadowed
text for desktop icons out of the box ?

Please tell me.
Thanks in advance,

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by mikelima 13 comments

Hi ! I think it would be a great thing. I often
have the situation that i install and configure new linux users kde. I take as much as possible of my own kde configuration files/themes/schemes with me in order to shorten the time i need to do this. The fonts are something i have to setup every time so a font scheme would be a much needed addon for kde :)
