I used to use foobar in windows, and that allowed something similar. What I'd mainly like to be able to do is browse my collection in the playlist view while Amarok is playing a different playlist.

Having a contect menu option "Send to playlist..." would be nice. Or just drag and drop onto the tabs. - Feb 17 2007

There's some problem with this style not applying to 32 bit gtk apps on a my 64 bit Gentoo system using the qt gtk engine. (gtk-engines-qt-0.7)

Plastik and other themes seem to work fine, and the only error I see when starting these apps is:

KThemeStyle cache seems corrupt!

Excellent, I see what you've done; my problem lays with my colour scheme.

I've had similar problems with ebuilds not liking minor changes in version- there's probably a more graceful way round it that I don't know.

Another suggestion I have is to remove the border when a window is maximised, so the content comes up to the edge.

I've also notied a strange but that's hard to explain. In Konqueror, sometimes when I move the cursor over the toolbars, the icons toggle to the pressed position. It only seems to happen in Konqueror, and usually when I've just moved the cursor over a scrollbar or a displayed icon. I can make some screenshots and possibly a video if this doesn't make sense. - Mar 20 2006
The decoration ebuild just needs renaming to match the version number, but the style one needs a minor hack due to the .1 not being appended to the workdir, so I've hosted it again http://ianegg.homeip.net/~ian/serenity-style-0.3.1.ebuild

I think the colums headers looked slightly better before as they matched the colour scheme whereas they appear grey now and stand out more - is the colour changeable or is it determined by the style? - Mar 19 2006
Sorry about the tripple post!

After using the style for a while, I find that the headers for column titles look too much like buttons, and this doesn't work very well when you have a lot of them in a row. Maybe a flatter or more subtle effect would be better.

Also, is it possible to have the frame in konqueror not drawn at all, so the content comes right up to the edge. Or is that unaviodable? The reason I ask is because I like to have crystal as my windeco, with 0 border width, using shadows for definition instead - like osx. This works well with firefox, but even with your improvemnt in this area, konqueror still has a border. - Mar 11 2006

- A bug that could prevent the first line in a new session from being used up to the full width of the terminal has been fixed.


I still get this bug :(

$ yakuake -v

KDE: 3.5.1
Yakuake: 2.7.4
- Mar 18 2006
I use the composite extention most of the time, and have the a default transparency set for YaKuake in "Window Specific Settings". If I have "retract when lose focus" enabled, and take focus away, then the trasparency stays the same. However, if I use the access key, it becomes non transparent the next time I activate it.

(The workaround is to use a shortcut to set the window to non transparent, then take focus away, and it goes back to normal.)

I was experimenting with forcing the window type to "Panel" to remove the shadow, so the animation won't look ugly, and noticed that when I use the access key to hide YaKuake, the shadow re-appears.

I was assuming this was a composite bug, but because the shadow reappears like that, I'm thinking that it could be something YuKuake is doing. Do you change the window type or something similar when the access key is used? - Dec 23 2005

I've seen terminals with composite backgrounds and opaque text, so it is possible at least. I think they had to draw the text twice, or have 2 drawing stages for it to work though.

Another use for my suggestion for pseudo-transparency is that users could have custom effects through the borders - like plastic wrap or mosiac in addition to the existing brighten, intensify etc.

If you do split off a composite version, I'd be happy to beta test (as well as, I think, everyone else! :)) - Jan 14 2006
I posted a screenshot to demonstrate what I mean. http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=33748 - Jan 13 2006
I think a nice feature to add would be to use a different background other than the desktop.

I don't use crystal's transparency, as KDE allows me to make the windeco transparent with composite, but if I could use a frosty noise pattern as the background for crystal, the combination of composite and crystal's blending would be a very nice effect.

Obviously, I could just set the desktop to the pattern, but it wouldn't make a very nice background :) - Jan 13 2006
Just noticed the new version as it was just added to Gentoo's Portage so am compiling as I speak.

Thankyou for removing the small maximised border. That annoyed me quite a bit, and now it's gone, will save me a lot of frustration.

I have to say, even without the excellent transparency and added shortcuts, this would be the best window decoration. I think it's great.

My only wish would be transparency using the composite extention ;) Maybe with KDE 4's support for composite, something like that will be more of a realistic idea. - Aug 06 2005

I had similar problems, so I only use composite for the shadows (instead of window borders, ala OSX), for fading in and out and to make everything a bit smoother. Stability is gradually improving.

I thought of this though, because it's always nice to show off ;) - Jan 13 2006
Yeah, I did that in my screenshot ;) Just the text looked like it was blurred - it may just be antialiasing? - Jan 13 2006

I think it would be worth it, as users with high DPI could decide if they want to put up with small fonts, or less information. For me, just a small increase in font size makes it a lot easier to read.

Maybe it's not that important right now, but I imagine screen resolutions will increase as time goes on, so it might be useful for the future. - Jan 02 2006
Would it be possible to add different font sizes to the configuration? I have a high resolution display, so I usually have to change the font size after every update so I can read it. (xorg DPI seems irrelevant.) I add 1 to 3 to the text sizes, meaning there's less variation in the fonts, but if I make certain ones too big it results in clipping. So it might require a bit of work, but something like Normal and Large would be good, maybe Larger or Extra large too for people with even higher DPIs.

I'm willing to try and implement this myself and send you a patch, but it would probably take me a long time, as I don't really get superkaramba scripting. - Jan 02 2006

WOW! Amazing response time, thanks! It's not the ultimate lazy man's solution, but it makes life a lot easier :)

A feature that would be very useful (for me at least) would be an option to automatically switch between Album and Track mode depending on wether Random Mode is on or off.

I mostly listen to random tracks, but I often like to listen to a whole album, and changing it every time can be a bit of a pain. - Dec 29 2005
Excellent! Thanks very much for your help. - Dec 22 2005
I saw that in the todo list. Will it handle albums properly?

I treid scripting it, but I'm not sure how to get it to skip already tagged files, and I'm not sure how to get it to recursively go through all my folders. - Dec 21 2005
This is an amazing script and it just keeps getting better. When I moved to Linux from Windows, Replaygain (and many other Foobar features!) was very difficult to live without, until I discovered this gem.

I'd just like to know if it's possible to dump a list of tracks that haven't had replaygain applied? Foobar could just go through the collection and do it all for me, but manually sorting through my mess of music folders to check each album is a PITA. - Dec 19 2005
