Description:

Oxygen style and decoration with support for transparency (see screenshots).

This is an official branch of the KDE oxygen style. It is kept in sync with the official oxygen style, and adds support of full transparency on the windows.

The style and the decoration are named "Oxygen Transparent" and appear as such in KDE's system settings (in both the applications and workspace appearance pages).

A configuration helper application is included with the style that allows one to configure both the style and the decoration in the same window. It is called oxygen-transparent-settings.

The provided script, named oxygen-setup.pl is used to:

- get the sources (from git)
- configure them
- compile and install the window decoration and widget style.

important notes

1/ The style (and decoration) should work for recent enough versions of KDE4.

Different versions (branches) must be used depending on your KDE version:

- the KDE/4.8 version works with KDE/4.8 (tested), and possibly some earlier verions (not tested)

- the KDE/4.9 version works with KDE/4.9 (tested)

- the master version works with latest KDE, compiled from git. It may not work with any earlier KDE release.

New versions will be added (KDE/4.10, etc.) when the corresponding KDE4 version is out.

One can switch between branches by running the script and specifying the relevant branch:

Quote:
oxygen-setup.pl --branch KDE/4.8
oxygen-setup.pl --branch KDE/4.9
oxygen-setup.pl --branch master


By default (when no branch is specified), the master branch is used.

There is a number of additional options available for the setup script. To get a list of them, type:
Quote:
./oxygen-setup.pl --help


2/ Since March 4th 2011, oxygen-transparent has moved to git.

The project home page is:

https://projects.kde.org/projects/playground/artwork/oxygen-transparent

You can get the sources directly using:

Quote:
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/oxygen-transparent


3/ KDE development packages are needed for the compilation to succeed (see below)

Feedback highly appreciated either here on on IRC, #oxygen. (ping hpereira, or hugo)

Downloads

There are automatic builds linked in the download section which have been provided by others (thanks !).

Only the first download (the script) is maintained by me, it always provide the latest svn version of the code.

Needed packages for installation/compilation

(thanks to MezzeForte for providing the list):

- gcc-c++
- git
- cmake
- kdebase-workspace-dev
- libxrender-dev
- libx11-dev

- Depending on the distribution you have the name of the packages might change a bit

- there are usually more packages needed by the packages above and installed via dependency.

For instance,

Quote:
sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake kdelibs5-dev kdebase-workspace-dev libxrender-dev libx11-dev git


should work on recent enough Ubuntu (thanks to Antelmo for posting. See page5).

Bugs:

Even though oxygen-transparent is not officially part of KDE you can report bugs to https://bugs.kde.org.
You would need to select Oxygen as a product, and Style as a component.

Make sure that "Oxygen-Transparent" appears in the bug title so that it does not get confused with official oxygen bugs.

Posting bug reports at bugs.kde.org is highly recommended rather than posting comments on this page, as it makes my life much easier at bookkeeping.




Changelog:

7f0a6013:
- synchronized with latest oxygen
- created KDE/4.10 branch
- Warning: if you are using the "master" branch (which targets KDE/4.11), you will have conflicts with oxygen (@KDE) configuration, unless you are also using kde from git repositories
This is due to backward incompatible changes in the configuration code.

83a46b6c:
- attempt at fixing bug concerning window positionning on screen for multi-screen setup
- changes in version policy. New available branches are KDE/4.8, KDE/4.9, and master. KDE/4.10 branch will be added as soon as the corresponding KDE4 version is released. The "stable" branch has been removed.

731ce67e:
- synchronized with oxygen (KDE/4.9)
- fixed crash at exit for virtually all KDE applications

d7bb65f0:
- synchronized with oxygen
- use icon from icon theme for tab-close button
- updated install script to deal with master and stable branch

7a121e2:
- synchronized with oxygen

 question

if i set the "transparency" slider to opaque, does it disable the effect (i.e. does it become as stable as the default oxygen)?

yes
you'd then get the native kde4.5 oxygen decoration.

the file open/save dialog has transparency around the scrollbars, this kind of transparency should be there for any window's scroll bars.

 revese transparency for

buttons, checkboxes, radiobuttons, scrollbar, dropdown list, etc.

I guess, using reverse (horizontally, vertically, circular, etc.) blur on other widgets would look good, instead of just non-transparency.

one should disable "transparency" effect in desktop effects to really see the consistent beauty of this 'oxygen transparency' style!

really Awesome, now with this style KDE 4.6 will really be outstanding...

 Very nice

i tried full transparency and it looks wonderful, but some texts were unreadable because of dark background wallpaper.

So, i have a thought, how about adding an option for a white glow to the texts just as in plasma tooltips, then will be more readable even with full transparency. :)

Well.

My fear is that adding plasma like white shade behind labels will clutter _a lot_ many applications. After all, some User Interfaces are quite complex and have _many_ labels.

In my opinion, I'd rather recommend _not_ to use full transparency, but rather something more subtle. I use an opacity of 80%. Windows are largely solid, everything is readable, and the hint of blurred background behind is subtle, non intrusive, and just in the spirit of the rest of oxygen's effects.

Just my two cents.

 Blur area missing

Hi! I noticed that there is a blur area missing from the open file dialog. Screenshot here:
http://omploader.org/vNTBiZg/blurnot.png

I just re-ran the setup script a few moments ago, so not sure if it's related to the previous missing blur issue.

Thanks for the good work! :)

I can't reproduce here.
Could you try "svn up" in oxygen-transparent/src/style
and then "make" and "make install" (as root or using sudo) in oxygen-transparent/build/style

This is the kind of bugs that r1152806 should have fixed. (make sure after svn up that it gives a revision number larger than the above).

Thanks Hugo. Following your instructions fixed it.

Does this mean the script isn't updating an existing installation when re-run and re-installed?

Actually, I can reproduce (sorry) in some cases. Its because sometimes the repaint (after the new area has been created) has occured before the blur area has been updated. I'll fix.

Just to say that tiz fixed and no problems with the script.

BTW I love all the mouse follows stuff in oxygen-settings - I'd forgotten about that since the nitrogen days :)

Glad you like the follow-mouse animations (in principle they should actually work better than the ones in nitrogen, cause my math were not so correct there).

Not everybody does though, which is why they did not make it to the default. Oh well. No big deal.

Well I was playing around with the settings and it became obvious that the timing is pretty critical. Too much delay and it seems that the effect is causing lag. Too fast and it goes unnoticed. Set it just right and it's wonderful! I suppose the the sweet spot varies from person to person and that's hard to allow for.
