I’m trying to disable all translucency effects. I thought could be achieved by disabling the desktop effect, however my window decorations are still trasparent which is rather annoying. Does disabling translucency affect window decorations or is it suppose to have a universal effect?
I have desktop effects disabled, and I am not seeing any transparency of window decorations. But maybe when desktop effects are disabled, you have to logout and login again before the change is fully effective.
Sorry, I noticed a typo in my original question. In short does disabling the desktop effect traslucent also apply to window decorations? I’ve logging out and back and It’s still there. To be more specific it’s the window title bar.
No. On openSUSE, KDE4’s settings are in ~/.kde4 so the line should be:
But: Plasma has nothing to do with the window decorations, so this won’t help you!
I think there are some special transparency settings either in “Configure Desktop”->“Workspace Appearance”->“Window Decorations” or in “Applications Appearance”. I’m not sure right now where they are. I will have a look in the evening…
If you don’t want to wait that long, you could try to remove ~/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc, that’s where those things should be stored IIANM.
OK, I had a look now.
But that setting is not there anymore, sorry! :shame:
It was there in earlier KDE versions, I don’t play around with the settings as I used to…
Now this is configurable in “Configure Desktop”->“Desktop Effects”->“All Effects”. Search for the “Transparency” effect. Click on the wrench symbol, you can change the transparency of the window decorations there.
At least that’s the only way I can get my window decorations to be transparent.
If that doesn’t help, try to remove kwinrc as I said before.
Or, maybe, Knurpht IS right and you should remove the plasma settings.
But you should quit plasma before by running “kquitapp plasma-desktop”.
You can restart it again afterwards with “plasma-desktop”.
PS: you can just rename the files, so you can get them back if a try doesn’t work.
