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
- fixed compilation issues with too old versions of KDE

 Problem with Okular

 
 by majewsky on: Oct 21 2010
 
Score 50%

Works fine on my system, but there's a glitch in Okular. I have a multipage document open in "Fit to Page" scaling mode, so PgUp/PgDn switches between pages. When I do so, the background of the lineedit in the bottom bar becomes opaque for a moment (like half a second). This is always reproducible.

yes. Its a conflict between blur and the line-edit animation (is it line-edit ? Or simple label) ? As of today I have no idea how to fix :(
basically the animation works as follow: - the line-edit/label is copy into a pixmap just before updating the widget
- it is painted on top of the widget
- the widget is updated
- the pixmap is painted over and over, every time with an smaller opacity until it gets totally transparent, at which point it is hidden, and the animation is finished.

Now, it does not work with a semi-transparent background: whatever opactity you choose, the pixmap + the editor will always look more opaque than the pixmap itself.

Only way around is to not use a superimposed pixmap but alter the lineEdit drawing directly (and not touching the background). I don't know how to do that with Qt :(

Hope the explanations are clear enough (though a fix would just have been better).

 Blur effect

The blur effect no more works on this theme for me! Blur works well on lancelot and my panel but it no more works in the background of this theme(and of course I put the transparency to 80% in the options).
So please can you fix it?
(It's the same with X11/Xrender or Raster.

mmm. What did you change between the moment where it was working and the moment where it was not ?

I have not committed any code change since quite some time now, namely september 12, and this commit actually had nothing to do with transparency. Last transparency related commit dates July 28)

Besides it does work here.

I suspect problem with driver, or kwin (which primarily handles the blur effect)

What is your
- graphics card
- kde version
- qt version

Finally; if you have a chance to test with e.g either QtCurve or BeSpin, that might help deciding whether it is oxygen's fault or upstream.

Cheers

Hi,
Little thing to fix : in Kmail, there is a zone in the bottom right corner where blur is not active.

Can reproduce and will fix. Right now I'm busy merging the transparency with latest oxygen from trunk (which I have been pretty much entirely rewritten after kde4.5, for optimization and in the hope of making a standalone Qt style out of it)

the display of video information within the dolphin can not see therefore remain transparent.

unfortunately there is not much I can do about it :(
There is a problem with embedding video in any application, and dolphin is one.
kaffeine is another (and is therefore blacklisted). You would have to blacklist dolpĥin also to give up on transparency for it, and get back the video preview.

Blacklisting can be achieved by typing 'oxygen-settings' in konsole or krunner; clicking on 'Exceptions' in the first page, and manually adding 'dolphin' as a new entry.

In vlc, transparency and video playback work _together_. Why is this possible with vlc, but not with other video applications?

You're correct with vlc. As for your question, to be honest, I'm not 100% sure, (except from the fact that it cannot be fixed inside the style and requires some changes either in the application or in the xembed mechanism that is used to embed video in widgets).

My understanding is that you must carefully watch which colormap is passed to which widget/window. If you use the default one provided by the app or the framework (and which is RGBA when using oxygen-transparent) to an XWindow that does not support it, you end up with either a crash or a black display.

Instead of
"cd build; make install"
must run
"cd /home/username/oxygen-transparent/build/"
and then
"sudo make install"
to make it work.

Hello,
Normally, with desktop effects (compositing) disabled, oxygen-transparent "should" behave just like the non transparent, so that you "should not" need to revert. Is it not the case ? What exactly is not working ?

If you see differences (with respect to latest non-transparent oxygen version), this is a bug and should be fixed (by me). As far as I could test here, I see no difference between oxygen and oxygen-transparent, when I disable desktop effects.

Reverting would be quite a pain, I must say: you would need to remove and re-install the package(s) (rpm or deb) that contain oxygen, to re-overwrite the compile code, but because of the many dependencies between packages, that might be quite painful (and dangerous).

Alternatively you could get and compile the latest non-transparent oxygen sources.

There is a script to do that (similar to the "oxygen-transparent" script), described at:

PS:
one thing I will add, based on your experience, is to gray-out the "opacity" options in oxygen-transparent configuration dialogs, when desktop effects are disabled, to make it clear that they can't be used.

Stay tuned.
