Description:

This is my first upload on this site.
To apply this theme you need to:
Have OpenGL enabled
Import the "BlurRule" to kwin's rules
Download and make executable "Enable Blur.sh"
put "Enable Blur.sh" at startup.

This theme is like Oxygen-transparent but it works on all themes

I decided against using the rule as it sets the transparency of every window, opting instead for just setting a few apps to have transparency - like the terminal.
Looks amazing, thanks for this script!

How can one disable that? I wanted to disable it, I tried removing the rule in System Settings, I tried manually removing the .kwinrule file. I tried restarting kwin after that. The transparency still appears. How can I disable the effect?

Have you removed the startup file?

Yes. Now I found out. The window rule was double created, one time in English and one time in Italian. Thank you for the fast response.

Are the menus blurred like osx?

So, windows are blurred but the menus aren't? Or they are just transparent all together? Thank you for your time.

Windows are blurred, menus are only transparent. If you deactivate the menus, the menus will not be transparent.

In Oxygen-transparant you see the window itself transparant but what's IN the window "the paper" as it were, is not transparant. This is beautifully to see on the third screenshot on the oxygen-transparant page in the kde store https://store.kde.org/content/show.php?content=127752 . Would it be possible to adapt the window rule in such a way that it looks like that?

I'm working on this, but it's very difficult. You'll probably see it in the next updates.

I tried to make this "window rule" but I didn't get it to work. It would be great if you uploaded one so that it could be "imported" .
It would be great to see this beautiful feature back in KDE!

Are you sure that you are using plasma 5.8 or newer? Or the effects are enabled on opengl and the blur effect is active?

I recommend removing the vsync to avoid crashes of server x
