Yet another KDE contribution by yours truly! This was fun. Not easy at all, but fun. I’m pretty happy how they turned out. A small feature, but a fun read to learn how, exactly, it was implemented.

I actually draw the shadows with 0% alpha channel! Oh God, I hope they tested that it plays well with KWin’s “Toggle Compositing” hotkey. I hate how much work it is to figure out how to completely get rid of the eye-catching black borders on GTK3 menus when I have to take advantage of”Toggle Compositing” to work around GPU driver glitches after three or four weeks of uptime, and that’s in a toolkit where theming has gone entirely CSS, rather than relying on compiled components I might have to patch. 2022-11-03 10:00 am rainbowsocks Oh finally! Drop shadows were never a good way of having clear boundaries between windows IMO, I’m very glad to see this. 2022-11-03 9:46 pm Bringbackanonposting Absolutely. The dark themes are a complete pita on KDE Plasma. All my inactive windows are the same. So many times I select the wrong window. Let alone trying to grab the edges to resize. I’ve had to resort to learning Alt-Right click drag to resize windows.
