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

 More exceptions

Hello Hugo, First thanks for your great script and second is as I know right now nspluginviewer and Kdenlive doesn't work correctly with oxygen-transparent so it's will be good if you add these to "Exceptions" by default. Thanks.

Will do.
Requires some time though, since I need to modify the code so that user-set exceptions do not overwrite "hard-coded" exceptions. Will give it a shot and keep you posted.
Thanks for pointing this out !

 Uninstall previous version?

 
 by ThermalGrease on: Dec 12 2011

Just joined to say it is a fabulous piece of work, truly love it.

But... if I want to upgrade to this version should I somehow uninstall the old one before or will it just overwrite it? Doesn't wanna mess things up.

 New version + SMplayer

Updated to new version and now I have transparent videos in SMplayer, ghostly :)

VLC works nice, will test some more and see if I can find myself a proper place to file a bug.

for smplayer, you might need to re-update your "exceptions" (in oxygen-transparent-settings" - background opacity - exceptions button)

for filing bug reports:

https://bugs.kde.org
select Oxygen as a product; widget style as component, and be sure to mention oxygen-transparent in the bug title.

Thanks !

 So frustrating

 
 by Goden on: Dec 15 2011
 
Score 50%

It's so frustrating something that I want installed on my KDE so badly is also so monumentally difficult to install for someone that is not familiar with Linux. (Getting unexplained errors every step of the way also does not help). I've followed multiple tutorials on how to get this installed and none of them explain enough to actually get me anywhere. Most did not even explain that I actually had to get git and cmake myself.

Well, sorry to hear about the frustration.

Oxygen-transparent is definitely experimental and targets somewhat experimented users.

One of the reasons is notably that the code in question is not 100% robust, and that encountered problems might frustrate un-experienced user even more than the frustration they got while trying to install.

Some day, there will be properly released oxygen-transparent code, that linux distributions should be able to ship, and that would make your life easier.

This requires some serious issues to be fixed first. In the meanwhile, sorry, there is not much I can do to ease your frustration.

(note however, that everything you learned while going through the tutorials is not wasted, and you are less an unexperienced user today, than you were before trying to compile and use oxygen-transparent).

I run kubuntu 11.10 on my eeepc asus 1015 (2gb ram and 320hhd), compositing and all effects on.
Being a newbi, I was wondering if there was a step-by-step tutorial on how to successfully install oxygen-transparent theme.
I'd appreciate your help.
cheers

I'm no tech savvy myself but this ppa/deb helps.
