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

 window placement

1st I really like the look. But after building and installing this theme, the window placement settings are completely ignored. I always use centered window placement, but it just wont work anymore. Windows are placed bottom right, doesnt matter what placement method I choose.

yes you are correct.
Its a fancy Qt/kwin bug.
When you set transparency on a main window, a different window is actually created by Qt in your back. And somehow that messes up the window placement with kwin. We (Thomas originaly, in bespin) thought we had a workaround around this, but apparently (from your test case) it does not work when you ask for centered window placement.

I'll investigate some more (its a quite serious issue as a matter of fact).

I'm actually not using kwin but emerald as window manager. It is possibly a prolem with Qt-4.7.0-RC1 I guess? I run KDE 4.5 compiled against Qt-4.7.0-RC1.

oh.
Emerald. (which would be compiz actually, right ? Emerald is just a window decorator). Then there is a chance that the workaround that we found for kwin actually breaks compiz window placement.

Thanks for the info.

 Install along classic oxygen

Hi.

Congratulations for this great job.

Is there some mode to install oxygen-transparent without override classic oxygen.

I want to probe it but without affecting anything.

Cheers.

Unfortunately not.
That is, not without modifying the code
(you basically need to give the style a different name, e.g. oxygen-transparent), and (more important) different library names (in the CMakeLists.txt), in order not to override existing deco.

I have been reluctant to do that so far because it makes merging with "normal" oxygen modifications more complicated.

I will see if I can find an elegant way to do that though.

Since yesterday, oxygen-transparent is not workign with KDE SC 4.5.1

The installation is successful but I cannot select the Oxygen style (the windeco works).

Oddly enough if I start Dolphin as sudo it uses oxygen (non-transparent).

However, if I start a program and try and force the style I get this: -

dolphin --style oxygen

Hello pepe,

Sorry we missed on irc (just waking up: living in New Mexico).

Indeed your log output looks good. So I don't have a clue whats going on. (especially since you are able to find the oxygen style as root).

I can pass you a very similar script that gets the sources for *normal* oxygen from svn. Maybe you'd have more success with this one.

And then play with one or the other.
But really, no clue ... (and I can't reproduce).

The script: http://pastebin.ca/1936500

This one is 'easy', I hope.

See the ^M in your error message ? Its an 'end of line' character.

Is it actually in the script itself ?
If yes, most likely it was added to every end of line when you copied the script to a text file. That would make your shell scream.

mmm. Not sure an editor would catch it.
the "^M" is supposed to be a single character.

Anyway, try download (not copy paste from file open in browser) the link:

http://hugo.pereira.free.fr/Misc/oxygen-setup.pl

That's the same script, hopefully uncorrupted.

Hi Hugo,

That script worked but I had the same problem as before. I've fixed it by purging and reinstalling all kde packages (and now have a much leaner system).

I'm now using oxygen-transparent at revision 1173860. Fantastic to have it back! There is one small problem though - sometimes tabs and buttons have a black outline and oxygen-settings loads without the content.

Error details: - /usr/lib/kde4/kstyle_oxygen_config.so: (/usr/lib/kde4/kstyle_oxygen_config.so: undefined symbol: _ZN6Oxygen9ItemModel4sortEiN2Qt9SortOrderE)

Not sure if this is connected to your latest changes mentioned in your blog post, but I do have an Nvidia graphics card: GeForce 9400M.

Hello pepe,
there is definitely something 'strange' with your system. The symptoms you mention points to some inconsistent libraries installed, and depending what you run (and from where) one library or the other would get loaded.

Could you post the result of
"ls /usr/lib/liboxygenstyle*"

that's 'interesting' ...

I cannot reproduce, but I'm using a more recent version of kdevelop (in which I made a couple of commits for it to look better with oxygen).

I think I know what the issue might be, though.

Will work on it.
Thanks for reporting.

actually I do reproduce the bug,
except that for me only the dock widget title is transparent, not its contents.

Annoying thing is that other apps with dock widgets (e.g. dolphin) do not show the issue.

This must be related to how kdevelop heavily customize dock widgets.

I'll see what I can do.
