Running a very simple be.shell config, i still need to finish the icons for the systray
(which is not displayed in the screenshot) and adjust colors.
Icons: Dynamo
Wallpaper: 1 Million

What you see at the bottom of the screen is not a dock,
but a plain panel settled to be transparent and with no shadows,
with a taskbar between two spacers.
Only the taskbar has a visible background - so it mimes a dock behaviour,
expanding itself depending on the content.
All built with be.shell, in brief.
So, please, avoid stupid questions like:
"Is that docky?"
Because seriously: there's a description, read it.
...And fuck, i hate docky ;P


The Qt Style and the File Manager are from a friend, they're not available for the public
yet, so please, don't ask about them.
They will be released once they're ready ;)

Seriously: i will not reply to stupid questions.
Don't waste my time forcing me to write the same things, and don't waste yours asking
questions already answered.
I know, i'm an asshole, and i'm ok with this.

:peace:

This looks superb. Is the QT Curve released ?

Thx!
It is not QtCurve, it's a different Qt style:
sourceforge.net/p/styleproject…

Qt4 only at the moment.

How did you get the gnome-like decorations? Like the joined titlebar and menubar?
Reply
:iconhombremaledicto:
Hombremaledicto Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2014
They're handled by the Qt style.
When this hack is enabled from the style settings
the decoration button are painted on part of the toolbar.
Also, the style checks whether the toolbuttons are settled
on "icon-only". If true, and if the space available is enough,
then it also add the title of the window.
Of course, the decoration is hidden, but the shadows are still
used. This works just on UNO windows ( where the toolbar is
placed below the titlebar), the non-UNO ones still display
the decoration ;)

Nope, as the description says this is a custom
Qt Style that a friend of mine is currently
developing.
And it's not publicly available yet, sorry.

Will it work with Qt5? :)
Reply
:iconhombremaledicto:
Hombremaledicto Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2015
It does already, and it also supplies a decoration for kf5 kwin
if that's what you're running :)

Only side note: CSD are not yet supported for Qt5, while
translucent background is brocken.

First step, cloning the source:

git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/styleproject/code styleproject-code
cd styleproject-code

For the next part, the deps vary according to your distro (might be you'll need qt & kde devel
packages, and extra-cmake-modules)

building for Qt5:

mkdir qt5Build && cd qt5Build

cmake ../ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DQT5BUILD=ON && make; sudo make install

For Qt4, we just create a separate build:


cd ..
mkdir build && cd build

cmake ../ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr && make; sudo make install

Then you can select styleproject as qt style and eventually DSP (that's the deco name)
as kwin decoration ;)

To understand how to edit the config, refer to the official wiki.

Usually KDE users is asshole, they don't like to share or help (sad but true :D ) but i need your help. Can you make a tutorial to make bottom panel to act like dock. I added two spacers and put taskmanager between them but it's not working, icons getting smaller when new applications run. I'm trying to love KDE but there is no dock for KDE or they are for GTK desktops also i can't manage to make a cool desktop, so everytime going back to other DEs. So please help. Sorry for my English.

Like juanuni said, this is be.shell.
As for the moment it doesn't work on plasma
(but could work, it's just that no one implemented this).
The problem in plasma is with the spacers, or maybe
with icon-only-task-manager. Probably, the most
efficent way to workaround this issue is to create an
new plasmoid, or to patch the existing one, to use
all the width available.
OFC i assume you created a panel that takes all the
horizontal space, placed the icon only taskbar between
two spacers and saw that it's not working :(

You must define in your be.shell file, for example, for Dolphin icon appears in dock:

[dolphin]
Exec=dolphin
Icon=dlphn
Label=Dolphin
Mode=0
Type=Button

As you can see the entrie "Icon=dlphn" referred to the path and the icon name, in this example the dolphin icon and style.css file are into the same folder ....

With plasma you can make a simple dock with the panel, you just need a widget, i dont remember but is some like "icon only task manager" ... in debian based distro this widget appears into some package (I dont remember the name)

Wow! Really like the Plasma-theme, what is it? :)

About the Qt-style, it isn't that transparent, or can it be tweaked?
Reply
:iconhombremaledicto:
Hombremaledicto Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2014
It's be.shell, not plasma (still based on kdelibs though :) ).
It's easier to customize, as it allows almost pixelprecision
within the theme file. Ok, it's not exactly easier, but it gives
you more control ;P

Yes, the Qt style transparency can be tweaked, so you can
have 100% transparent windows or 100% opaque ones ;)

Nice, isn't that your friend some Apple? :)
I wonder how the CSD is done, is it all by Qtstyle, or does it need some in-app patchs? I see title between the buttons, so I assume there's some smart function.

I wish I had such a beautiful and consistent enviroment, and with an as perfect as it looks behavior.
Reply
:iconhombremaledicto:
Hombremaledicto Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2014
The CSD is done by painting the close|min|max buttons
on the toolbar, only when the UNO condition is satisfied
(toolbar below the titlebar). Then it can also paint the title
if the toolbuttons are in icon-only mode and there's enough
space available. No app-specific patches then :)

Thanks! Well, the Qt Style will be released once ready,
so it's just a matter of time ( keep an eye on qt-apps.org )

As for transparencies, i'm sorry, but can't give you a proper answer.
Not because of somekinda-secret that i promised to not share
because ninjas would track me down and cut my head off.
Nope, it's just because i'm not good with C++ and it's still hard
for me to understand the code :P

but you never know what ninja's secret you've just broken, haha. i can understand, i don't speak c++ as well. I just hope it's done by the style, it seems well blurred.
