well I wanted to go with "derps"... well, only thing more intelligent then "derp", would be lots of "derps"... "derp" in plural. However, then nobody would make the connection to drops so I went with "dorps".
Thx! Panel is neither actually.... ...as the shell is written in qt, it can be styled with qss... so panel background is simply: background: qlineargradient(x1:0, y1:0, x2:0, y2:1, stop:0 rgba(0,0,0,220),stop:1 rgba(0,0,0,164));
All Qt apps can be styled with qss. Read the documentation about stylesheets here: [link]
And you have a good eye sir, it's far from minimal.
Nice set (as usual from you ) Clean and elegant, rather not minimal. Especially like your choice of colors and polished details in this bespin preset. Featured in #artescritorio -- One thing - distances between the (groups of) tools in your FM's toolbar seem completely random and inconsistent in comparison with the tightly-ordered toolbar of the preview app window. -- The top bar - that's xbar isn't it? What's the bottom one? -- Would you care to share the preset and even source code of your mysterious file manager?
'However, as I've heavily patched bespin it will not look the same' - that would explain why your presets (got already 3 from you) cause mess on my desktop (kde 4.8.3, bespin built from svn, r1529). I did already moan about different colors from your another screen ([link]). But it's not just the colors. Wouldn't bother you with screens since you mentioned your patching. -- Now I'm so desperate as to ask you for the patches. I feel like I am imposing myself but if you don't mind sharing them I'd be extremely grateful.
Well bespin is quite 'stretchable', so to speak. I don't know how far you can stretch it. I only played with dozens of presets and custom settings without touching the source code. And some results were quite amazing.. Anyway I hope you will publish your changes at some point, it would be a great contribution into beautifying KDE. Looking forward to it.
In that case I suggest you play around with bespin a little more. I've nothing concrete yet I'm just mostly being impulsive, like when I want safari like tabs, I code them, then later when I don't, I re-write the code again......
I was wandering why don't you just join the author of Bespin and cooperate to join your customizations into main Bespin code so that more options are available in Bespin by default. Perhaps coding together would be more productive... I believe he wouldn't mind some company . Maybe Bespin could have some plugin system ...
Do you plan to create your own Bespin fork or even your own theme engine?
I've been mailing with Thomas for many years now, he is a really nice guy
Thing is, my coding skills 1/10, hes 12/10.
That's why he doesn't need my help. Believe me, anything I can do, he can do 10 times better, and I'm not even exaggerating.
A fork of bespin would be a own engine. Well, that is what I have been doing for some time now. What you probably wanna know: Is your code ever gonna be good enough to release? -probably not. I might still release it at some point tho. However, I believe it's of little relevance now that qt5 is right around the corner. Makes little to no sense releasing a qt4 style then don't you think?
If you want some feature in bespin, convince Thomas, that's the best way. Trust me. He is a very reasonable guy.
I wouldn't consider this minimal. To me, being minimalistic means that you have absolutely nothing but the bare essentials-which can be good or bad. This setup is uncluttered-not minimalistic. People don't seem to think there's a difference anymore.
Btw, I absolutely love how you've decorated the dolphin sidebar with the ribbon selection. How did you do that?
