PanelShadows

Plasma 4 Widgets

7.4
Description:

Add this to your desktop and any panel will cast a shadow (maybe works best with bright themwes, but aya is "broken" in trunk)

atm. it can not catch panel additions, i.e. if you add a panel, you want to remove this plasmoid and readd it as well :(

configurable as soon as i found a way to provide an interface w/o having a visible applet - wouldn't it be cool to have a cashew replacement that one can hook such interfaces on? ;-P

errr... i assume you refer to the menubar - XBar, part of bespin (and only works with either bespin or iirc qtcurve)

sure you installed to `kde4-config --prefix`?

try
stat `kde4-config --prefix`/lib/kde4/plasma_applet_panelshadows.so

and
stat `kde4-config --prefix`/lib/kde4/plasma_applet_panelshadows.so

if nothing else, maybe plasma needs a refresh,
kquitapp plasma-desktop && plasma-desktop

Thomas uses his own desktop, tho there is
a xbar plasmoid that ships with bespin,
just add it to the top panel and boom.

erhem... this panel obviously WAS plasma (elegance theme) - otherwise the screenshot WOULD have been a betrayal ;-)

How would I modify the code such that this works (better) on bottom screen panels?

Or what about if the panel is transparent - I notice you can see the shadow underneath, which makes the panel much darker than it should be.

How to get this installed?
Shouldn't this be a binary format?

What desktop style and windeco are you using? Is there the MAC OS menubar visible from forthcoming 4.2?

You can enable it by executing following command:

and then install as ususaly (aptitude install panelshadows)

Or just download:

and install it with dpkg -i command.

This seems to work with the Kubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex (KDE 4.1.2).

hummm... just inspected current panelview code. it /should/ still work (why do they always have to update all those pixmaps...)

just to be sure:
- you won't see too much on bottom panels, as the shadow has a downdrift (and is yet not configurable)
- also the maximum alpha is hardcoded to 25%, so the effect is probably low on dark wallpapers

could you just assure it's not just about this?

I tried adding it to the desktop, but this "remove sign" in the applet browser wouldn't even appear, so I suppose it did not even get added to the desktop at all.

ok, thanks.
seems to be something about the plasma infrastructure then (i need view() != 0) and loop the initialization until it exists. probably it doesn't anymore in recent plasma.
-> friday ;-)
