Yeah, a lot of video players don't like transparency. This is due to a lot of complicated crap with the way X handles video a lot of the time.

You can blacklist kaffeine in the QtCurve settings dialog so it doesn't get transparency it will show video after that.

On a side note VLC does work with transparency. - Aug 11 2010
QtCurve 1.5 was I believe the first version to have an option for transparency. It however had a bug causing plasma to act like a normal window so 1.5.1 ( the most recent ) is the version I recommend you use.

There is a link in the description. - Jul 14 2010
I am assuming you are using Mandriva from your user icon.

I found this blog post for KDE 4.5 Mandriva RPM packages if you are interested. - Jul 11 2010
Use QtCurve 1.5.1 ( I have it linked in the description above. ) but you will need a recent KDE 4.5 RC version to get the blurring effect that makes the transparency usable. Otherwise text showing through from windows below the one you are using will make reading a PITA. ( pain in the a** ) - Jul 11 2010
Yeah, the only tampering I did was to convert the PNG to a JPG to meet upload size requirements.

AH-HA! Gtk, diabolical. Quick! To the compiler codeboy. - Aug 01 2010
Have you gotten a reply to this because if not I will happily test this patch/fix for you.

I have a 8600GT and KDE 4.5 Kubuntu. - Jul 29 2010
Well, the default behavior in 1.5.1 is to exclude SMPlayer from RGBA and I just leave it at that. - Jul 09 2010
VLC seems fine with transparency.
While SMPlayer will not show video.
I am not sure about any other Qt/KDE video players. - Jul 09 2010
Wonderful and thanks. - Jul 06 2010
When using window transparency plasma-desktop acts as a normal window and shows up in the task-bar.

Tell me what you need from me to find out this bug and fix it - Jul 06 2010

Yeah, I got to looking around last night and figured that out.

I need to add it to my script.

Thanks and, nice setup. - Jul 16 2010
Are you enabling the transparency by hand editing the file or are you using a SVN build of bespin. - Jul 16 2010

I am not entirely certain as to what you mean.

I wish I could edit the gradient colors but thomas12777 has not programed this type of functionality into the Bespin style and I am no programmer. :) - Apr 27 2009
I noticed that as of this comment this preset has a rating of 44%.

If anyone has suggestions on how I could improve this preset then please let me know and I will do my best to improve it and will know what people want in the future. - Mar 29 2009

Sorry, I was thinking of another clock program.

No, I don't think that adjustable clock can emulate dbclock.

But, maybe this is a little better.

It took me a while but, this is the best I could come up with.

<center><table><tr><td rowspan="2"><h1><b>%l:%M</b></h1></td><td style="font-size: 11px"><b><u>%p</u></b></tr><tr><td style="font-size:14px; vertical-align: top;"><b>%S</b></td></tr></table></center> - Mar 30 2009

Thanks for the tips and for all of your work on Bespin.

This is my first bash script that goes beyond just calling external programs in sequence.

And yes, I did read the readme, really.
I was hoping to make things like the bootsplash install on a command line switch added after the script name on the command line with a strong warning.

As for the preset thing, I didn't know that the bespin external config dialog had commandline options. ( Though I never really looked. ) But, yes I knew that if you import the same preset twice they go in numbered sequence.
So, I was trying to think of a way to only add changed or new presets. Perhaps create a new presets group file then dif and merge and/or string compare?

But if you make ( or have made if I read that wrong ) an update commandline option it would make my life easier. ;)

Anyway, I will try to incorporate your suggestions into the script sometime in the next few days, I still have a lot of trees to plant and a garden to till by hand. - Mar 28 2009
