Smoked Quartz [QtCurve settings]
zoom


Downloads:  3667
Submitted:  Jul 9 2010

Description:

A transparent setup for QtCurve intended for dark colors.

Use your favorite dark ( or light ) color scheme or use mine.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Rage colors http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Rage?content=127292

This QtCurve theme works best with QtCurve 1.5.1 and KDE SC 4.5 with blur turned on.

To clarify the above statement, QtCurve 1.5.1 is needed for transparency, and KDE SC 4.5 with the blur Kwin effect activated for the blurring effect that makes the transparency easy on the eyes.

QtCurve 1.5.1 http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/QtCurve+(KDE4,+KDE3,+%26+Gtk2+Theme)?content=40492




Changelog:

First public release.

Yeah, the only tampering I did was to convert the PNG to a JPG to meet upload size requirements.

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** )

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.

You have to compile the qtcurve 1.5.1 source code, inside the compressed file you find instructions, and you must have KDE 4.5 to activate blur effect.

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.

 Transparency not working

Is installing kde-4.5 absolutely necessary to install this theme? I installed qtcurve-1.5.1 and imported the theme.

I get the colors, but no transparency.

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.
