Re: Cinnamon effects and visual transparency

This is all I found: When the patch is adapted for use with Shell, outset shadows and most corners with big radii are distorted. Only the corners of those actors that correspond to panelmode=0 are OK. With some changes, all shadows will be OK but none of curved corners. Your method of detecting tran...

I bet you did, am I right?

Yes, I have. But I reversed the changes without any difference. I'll let you know as soon as I fix this issue. It needs a little more free time.

Re: Cinnamon effects and visual transparency

... it's clear that something goes wrong with Shell's alpha management at those corners. I don't think it's so serious. Perhaps it's because whenever a dialog is shown, the screens gets a bit dim and the dialog still remembers the previous state. The code can be adjusted to this. The menu borders a...

Re: Cinnamon effects and visual transparency

The problem happens only when both rounded corners and box-shadows are defined for the same widget, am I right? No. The problem can be seen when border-radius is great enough and against some backgrounds: http://i.imgur.com/6NhwX.jpg Everything is OK with small border radii, even with a shadow: htt...

Re: Cinnamon effects and visual transparency

Fixing the outset shadow problem in Gnome-Shell was easier than I thought. It's enough to compensate for the shadow values with the aid of st_theme_node_get_box_shadow(), provided that st_theme_node_get_background_paint_box() is used instead of st_theme_node_get_paint_box(). Now, there only remains ...

Re: Cinnamon effects and visual transparency

Hmmm... which "commit" of the github backgrounds effects implementation are you using as a base? For now, I concentrate on Shell v3.6.2. The codes are similar and I'll surely come to Cinnamon again. Let me tell you about my story shortly. Having used Gnome-Shell since its first version, a...

Re: Cinnamon effects and visual transparency

... That theme looks amazing! Thank you! It's GnomishDark http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/GnomishDark?content=147290 . I'll add the Cinnamon and Nemo support to it soon. Did you try using a "frosted glass" bumpmap with it? As a matter of fact, I removed bumpmap and some other thing...

Re: Cinnamon effects and visual transparency

esteban: if tsujan gets this "official" as a gnome-shell extension, and nothing happens with it in Cinnamon, then I'm gonna run down to where you're at and slap you! :D :twisted: tsujan: looks brilliant! Thank you! And don't worry ;) this can't be an extension. All credits go to esteban1u...

Re: Cinnamon effects and visual transparency

For now, my "Compiz complex" is pacified in this way:

Thanks again for the idea.

Re: Cinnamon effects and visual transparency

At last, I succeeded in distinguishing those popup menus in a very artificial way with conditions like: St.describe_actor(this.actor).indexOf("some text") != -1 I just wanted to have blurred transparency in Shell like in old good days of Compiz. The Gnome dev has ruined so many beautiful t...

Thank you but I'd tried that: all of them were "StBin.popup-menu-boxpointer popup-menu panel-menu:last-child"!!! Theoretically they're identical; practically there's a difference. Something else should be at work here.

Re: Cinnamon effects and visual transparency

You must remember that Cinnamon uses a couple of hacks in order to get the panel at bottom (the original Gnome-shell panel implementation has the panel at top), so I had to create an "exception" for that special case: the panelmode property. Yes, I know that. But, in Gnome-Shell, the prob...

Re: Cinnamon effects and visual transparency

The problem with the outer shadows can be fixed by using of st_theme_node_get_background_paint_box() instead of st_theme_node_get_paint_box(). Well, I'm afraid is not that simple. Let's say you've defined this style (purposely exaggerated) for your popup menus ... You'r right. I hadn't tested that ...
