Post details: Metacity scroll-to-become-invisible

Dec 31
Metacity scroll-to-become-invisible

Finished my "scroll on the titlebar to change window opacity" patch today.

Because images say more than words:

(Image is link to original)

Scroll up on the title bar to make the window more opaque, scroll down to make them more transparent, in steps of 4%.
There might be some minor bugs in the code, and the code might be not-really-acceptable (breaking Metacity standards) but hey, it works :-)

You can find a complete "cvs diff" of my current local metacity-cvs-head branch here. It contains both the composite manager changes and the scroll-on-titlebar thingy.
The current composite manager will be dropped in favour of the GL-accelerated one in the spif2 branch. I still couldn't get that one working though :-(

[edit] In Bugzilla now, GNOME bug #325373.

I started working on "Planet UGent" today, just for fun, which should aggregate everyone who is somehow related to UGent: students, teaching staff,...
Templates taken from Planet Gnome and altered thanks to Peter and RealNitro. Still a lot of design work (top banner, CSS) to do though. And obviously, we need more feeds :-)

No I don't. If you're not able to write the ebuild yourself you shouldn't mess with this patch IMHO.

I might make one later and post it in the Unsupported Software section of the forums.
