I've just backported the changes of QtCurve 1.7.0 and 1.7.1 to Trinity's version (1.6.2) of QtCurve. (http://mirror.git.trinitydesktop.org/gitea/TDE/tde-style-qtcurve)
I attached the patch.
I've tested the built qtcurve.so and qtcurve.la and they are working. However, i've noticed, that the configuration module does not build. Not even with the original sources of 1.6.2.
Also i am unable to set the background image for panels and menus from the config file. A decade ago i had a converstation with original author Craig Drummond here: https://www.cinnamon-look.org/p/1005552/show/page/21
He advised me what to do, but 1.6.2 did not supported those options; it was introduced in 1.7.0, that's why i backported it, but it still not works.
Any ideas on that?
Patch is available on bugzilla bug 3073
I could swear, that i attached the patch here too... Attaching again.
Anyway, any ideas about the config module not building or why the image as window/menu background is not working?
Yep, upload does not work for me. Neither edit...
Instead of inserting a patch as comments or attachments, the better way is to create a branch, apply the patch, push as a new commit, and create a pull-request. See the TGW tutorial on the wiki.
@tch: thanks anyway for trying crating a PR (replying here to your comment on bug 3073). When I look at the patch I will also look at the config module and background problem.
@SlavekB: Tried, but the authentication has failed.
@MicheleC: Ok, then.
BTW, i've checked the modifications between the steps of 1.7.1->1.8.0->1.8.1->1.8.2->1.8.3->1.8.4->1.8.5 and it's not much. It can be done in an afternoon, just like this one. Although i found nothing between 1.8.4 and 1.8.5 beside the changelog. Maybe all modifications were done in the “common” folder, which is missing from the archives.
First: If @tch has trouble creating a branch or uploading his patch maybe he can create a fork in his gitea area.
Second: I'm a bit puzzled with our Qtcurve because I've cloned git://anongit.kde.org/qtcurve.git and when I get back to tag 1.6.2 for instance, I see two extra folders (kwin and kwindconfig).
As a side note, tags from 1.7.2 to 1.8.9 are available.
git show-ref --tags -d
The user @tch is a member of the Contributors team, so there should be no problem with that he can push the new branch. Unfortunately I have no idea if he tried to push directly into the master branch?
@cethyel: Those folders for KDE4 and/or KDE5. After 1.8.5 KDE3 was unsupported. Also by first glance, your repository does not contain any KDE3/Qt3 related sources even below 1.8.5.
@SlavekB: About the push issues, the details are in https://bugs.trinitydesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3073
oh that's too bad, I thought that this repository (which, by the way, is not mine) could be of use in your endeavor.
I did not say that it could not, i just said, that i have not found any KDE/Qt3 related part, yet. But thanks anyway.
No due date set.
This issue currently doesn't have any dependencies.
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
