I told Lars (aka Lagadesk) I've been working on shadows lately.

Now before someone starts screaming bloody murder about
the bespin configuration, it's here: [link]

Just paste into kate and save as gray.bespin.... then import etc...

...Oh! ...and Happy easter wishes to... everyone who celebrates easter!

Hey, that looks really nice!
I trying to configure my own GUI on Archlinux with WMFS2, your work is a greatly insparation!

Howsoever; im wondering how dou you add the bar at the top of your screen, is this a KDE feature?

Im pretty new to this ^^

Thx, glad you like.

Sounds good, hoping to see some screenshots from u then :)

Well, any DE offers to put panels on the top of your screen,
this sure can be done with kde, or any other DE. This is
not plasma however.

Absolutely nice! And if you always speak about "Mac-cloning", what I do
not understand because none of your scrots look like a Mac clone.
You are certainly very inspired by Mac OS but in many details you are already
one step ahead. The only thing I don't is the brushed look in the
complete window background. But there are so many other excellent details...
Pure uniqueness! :)

And happy easter if you celebrate easter! ;)

Well, as I've said many times: I will never create
a 1:1 100% accurate aqua clone
, but, what I do, is
clone mac.

The elements are basically the same as mac: connected
toolbar buttons, brushed metal background, colors... the overall look is very much mac, even if I'm
not directly making a 1:1 clone of every widget, it's
still cloning... or copying.

Deviantart is pretty much the only site where one can
clone mac this way and everybody thinks it's cool.

Anywhere else and you'll create a flamewar :D

Thx for the kind words tho man, glad you like it.

And yes, I celebrate easter, I come from a christian
home :)

I know that you do that! But what you do is good things
make better and this is more than cloning! In the computer
area anyway looks everybody to the other.
There is no more reinventing the wheel. ;)

I like the people here much more than elsewhere
because they are much nicer. :)

So then have some great days with your family!

Yes, that's true, however, if something is
too close to something that is patented, not
enough to get you in legal trouble, but enough
to make a bad name for yourself... and that's
pretty much what I'm doing :D

Yeah the people here are kind, and mostly,
older then 14 ;-) That is the main problem
at opendesktop IMO.

Yeah hopefully I will, my wife has the flu
or something atm.

You mean something you haven't already think of?! NO :)
I see only three options though, tweaking the window background so that inlay buttons look OK on it, changing the shape of buttons or changing the inlay effect related part of the Bespin code to get what you want. You're the master and know what to do better than almost anyone else :)

I just used the same "carving" gradient as for the
toolbuttons. looks like them now, which is good,
since it looks better, and bad, because now buttons
and toolbuttons look too much alike :D But I just use
less roundness on the normal buttons, then it's okey.

I don't know, I really prefer the horizontal gradient
on windows with a brushed metal overlay, so I'm not
gonna change that for a while I guess.

Oh, and I'm definitely no master, is just, the real
masters despise mac cloning so I have to do it myself ;-)
