Thanks a lot :D ! It's Ubuntu 11.10, but you would have the same on any other which provides QT, FVWM and Conky.

Also, the buttons with the grey gradients under radio status and wireless status are FvwmButtons so they're not part of the conky script.

It's basically a mod from the naos suite conky setup.
I didn't like having the RSS feeds in the bar, so I wrote another config for it :)

Ah! cool, if I hadn't given up conky some years back I'd
prolly use that :)

I've never used rss myself... tho from what I understand
it's somekinda news......... thing :D

How's the coding goin btw?

RSS format's just an XML derivative meant to be generated automatically by website, usually to represent a list of articles/news. It's just a nice way to keep up to date with the last news.

I reworked the window decorations, especially corners :D In the screenshot, you can see a preview of a simple non-uno window ( in gwenview ). I'm working on the frames right now, not sure what I want, but I don't like the default ones. I also reworked the tree views ( see bespin demo ), but it looks a bit weird :)

Ic, nothing I'd be interested in then, thx for explaining!

Yeah that looks nice, I see you got what you wanted on the deco :)

About the views... Thomas has made a rather advanced way
of painting inside and over the views (so the shadows cover
items), called VisualFrame. The way you seem to want it is
just normal frames that go outside the view (like qtcurve),
you don't need visualframe for this, so, you can just skip
using visualframe on the views and draw normal frames using
setpen and drawrect..... should get you what you want.

Btw, I too started re-writing the views a tiny little bit,
check here: [link]

mostly tho, because I don't like that they are rounded even
when they are near window borders.... plus, I wanted stronger
shadows.

Thanks for the explanations :) In fact I'm also trying to avoid having these rounded corners nears window borders. Doesn't look consistant. A good example of this is kmail.

Not trying to feed a troll, throw a stone or anything, but I find that by default, QTCurve is somehow more consistant. Take something like the calligra suite, the "dockers" render quite strange in Bespin . Bespin has its own special way to render some widgets like progressbars and tabs. It's among other things what make it so special, but also a potential weakness as most of the apps are designed with the oxygen style in mind.

As a matter of fact, I really like "fixing" what I don't like in it even though I feel I'm breaking it a bit more every day :D

qtcurve is more general indeed, makes it more
consistent in some cases. Bespin is much more
experimental. Makes some things look out of place
so to speak. I personally prefer experimental.

Calligra suite? dockers? I'm clueless as to
what you are referring to here.

Yeah most apps that are designed to be used in
the kde workspace tend to align more to oxygen.
As that is what "normal" ppl use. Then again,
sometimes programmers do stupid things just to
get it look right with oxygen, that requires
workarounds in bespin to look right.

about breaking/fixing, "things are going
to get worse before they get better"
.

In doubt, just backup the file you are working
on and delete it and svn up -> fresh copy.
Thomas keeps bespin in neat condition, rarely
commits code that is bad in some way.
