hi Rob,  just a quick question.  Is the ribbon in the top panel part of Bespin? Looks fantastic and I would love to use it in my own KDE setup.

No, written in css - part of be.shell. Only shell that
has advanced features needed for this. I dont remember
exactly what I did but probably a panel w/ a background-image
set.

Be.shell is mostly aimed at powerusers tho and is rather
difficult to first setup, iffffffffffff you have a lot of time on
your hands and/or are determined you can read more here

Hmmm, I was hoping for a lazy, non-time consuming way to do this.  Thanks anyway :D  Desktop looks epic.

I'm on KDE 4.14.1(?)  It's nice :D  I have tried the live version if KaOS with the new plasma and it looks really stunning actually.  I have installed the new Breeze style from git in Arch and it is fantastic.

this is still Bespin? god damn you should write your own DE xD
i really share your style i really like
BTW, im trying to do my first steps around Bespin, trying to modify the tabbing.ccp file (i will be honest i hate Bespin's default tabs)

BTW in your screenshot i just wanna change the toolbar buttons with i dont know, perhaps another kind of frames, they say nothing to me, but i don't know how they should be

Th3R0b Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
yes and no, based on bespin yes. my own DE?
no, I really should not, if u like the style then
'you should really write your own style' :)

those tabs are however not painted by the style,
but by the application... (like google chrome does).
if u wanna re-write the tab-painting then ur in
for some hard work, as the approach bespin
does "only" has to take vertical/horizontal tabbars
in to consideration. Some more 'normal' tabpainting
has to take all 4 sides, and do completely different
painting for them (eg. tabs on bottom should point
downward and tabs on left should point to left).
read the docs for QTabWidget and QTabBar.

the toolbar buttons are pretty much standard
etched buttons.... nothing more nothing less :)

thxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx that docs i needed :D.
im trying to understand how Bespin paint his tabs but im very lost, so first im understanding how to themeing in QSS and well this is my first silly work 
i.imgur.com/YhHpNao.png
so, im thinking you use QSS to paint osx tabs? and you use some png or something like that? or you model all the shapes?
sorry for thats silly questions, but im very intrested in learn how to modify that tabs :D

how bespin paints the tabs? -that's really simple
actually, where there is a tabbar it paints a rounded
rect over the whole area, then where there is a
active tab, it also paints a rounded rect. However,
iffffffff u actually want to re-implement the tabpainting
then u have to be ready to really learn this.... since
u gotta understand how to draw text w/ qpainter
and so forth.... w/o any painting there is *nothing*
being painted on the tabbar.... u have to paint *everything*
urself.

This is what I do yes, this is absolutely not what u
should do if u are simply looking to style some osx
tabs, simply steal some tab pixmaps from a osx
scrot and use those w/ qss. -> thats easy :)

'model all shapes?' <- not sure what that means...
...I use a QPainterPath to create the shape...
...then QPainter to do the actual painting on the widget.

Not silly questions at all, however, I strongly suggest
u use css (which I c u already have gotten results w/)
instead of trying to re-implement the painting in the
style.

to start a qt app w/ a stylesheet:

$ qtappname -stylesheet /path/to/stylesheet.css

and a kde app:

$ kdeappname --stylesheet /path/to/stylesheet.css


example:

$ dolpin --stylesheet /path/to/stylesheet.css

when i ask you if you "model all shapes" i think that you already told me

"This is what I do yes, this is absolutely not what u
should do if u are simply looking to style some osx
tabs, simply steal some tab pixmaps from a osx"

so this means that you didnt use pixmaps right? for example in this capture
th3r0b.deviantart.com/art/desk…

is that pixmaps? or you painted it everything? :D

im working i get something like that :D

I dont use pixmaps :) pixmaps are static, and does
not change dynamically according to the palette.
...like so for example screenshot.

...pixmaps are painted also... or they are not visible.

Once in a while a KDE user posts up a screenshot that makes me want to defect from XFCE. Congrats on being that user today. And with the one before this, too.

dont defect from anything just because u like the look

Gee, that's a bit harsh. Some people put a lot of value into the aesthetic of their computing experience. I don't think it's stupid, some people just have different priorities.

mmkay, I'm sry if I offended u... I just meant that
if u like using something then u shouldn't stop just
because u like the look of something else. The look
of something is not really a priority if it does what u
want it to do :)

Nah, it's cool. :)

If the GNOME developers keep shafting GTK though, I may feasibly see myself running KDE in the future for many more reasons. We'll see how things turn out.

I wouldn't touch Gnome with a 10-foot pole either; I'm an XFCE user. Problem is, the Gnome guys maintain our toolkit, sooooo...

yeah, the only problem w/ gtk as I see it is that it's slooooooooooooooooooooow :D

so xfce is written in gtk... wonder why that is.
...well I gotta be honest w/ u... I don't know
what the target audience is for xcfe so might
be they have their reasons :)

that chrome like tabs looks good. thinking to switch to gentoo, what you say?
Reply

Th3R0b Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013
well... if ur using ubuntu now I'd say it's a bad idea :D

u have to read manuals and stuff w/ gentoo.

...also, those tabs and these apps has nothing to do w/ gentoo.

samsherk Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013
yeh i am using ubuntu (elementary for time being :P ), i also know those tabs are part of bespin, i am thinking to try gentoo for speed boost. i am ready to read the documentation... actually i have already started to read handbook :D .
Reply
:iconth3r0b:
Th3R0b Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013
u might get a speedboost... then again u might not,
u get more power when u compile the software urself,
but then u really gotta study what compiler instructions
and CFLAGS u wanna pass to the compiler..... or u might
end up w/ a slower system.

The tabs? the tabs on top a'la chrome? no those are not
painted by bespin. bespin has very different tabs from those,
more like selectors.

Oh! well if you're willing to read the manual then I'm sure
u'll get it up and running -most ppl these days just want
the system to be so automated they dont have to do anything.

yes and no, those (and only those) chrome-like tabs are not
painted by any style. rest is painted by the style, since that
really is some sorta custom title-widget-thing that includes
tabs and window control buttons (min|max|close), it's not
painted by the style.

so how you do that? i am trying to install gentoo now but portage is keeps on downloading since 1 hour (really frustrated :( ).

:iconth3r0b:
Th3R0b Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013
if u are used to *buntu then I really think gentoo is not ur thing.

how do I do those tabs or what? those tabs are in that application.
.....just like the tabs in google chrome are in google chrome and not
in any style.

they are just environment variables... u just need to

way of doing this, I don't remember what that
style was called sry.
