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

Thank you!
It works fine with standard kde windows (dolphin ,settings, etc) but I see an error with chrome (and, consequently, chrome is not being blurred):

xprop: error: No window with name Plasma 5 Windows Blur - KDE Store - Google Chrome exists!

This is due to the window name which changes according to the current tab:

WM_NAME(UTF8_STRING) = "Plasma 5 Windows Blur - KDE Store - Google Chrome"
_NET_WM_NAME(UTF8_STRING) = "Plasma 5 Windows Blur - KDE Store - Google Chrome"

Bu maybe WM_CLASS should be used?

WM_CLASS(STRING) = "google-chrome", "Google-chrome"

I found out that using the window id retrieved through xdotool is better, and it seems to make errors disappear.
Furthermore, it is working with chrome as well.


while true; do
sleep 0.5
a=$(xprop -id $(xprop -root _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW | cut -d ' ' -f 5) WM_NAME | sed -e 's/.*"\(.*\)".*/\1/')

# can have more ids for the same window name!
ids=$(xdotool search -name "$a")
id_arr=($(echo $ids | tr " " "\n"))

for id in "${id_arr[@]}"
do
xprop -id "$id" -f _KDE_NET_WM_BLUR_BEHIND_REGION 32c -set _KDE_NET_WM_BLUR_BEHIND_REGION 0
done

set -u
done

Hey, thank you for this suggestion, that's the best suggestion I've ever seen. Soon I will try this and update the script to download. Let me now if you want credits!(:

You are welcome, and so are the credits ;)

I am experiencing another issue with windows having strange characters on the name.
For instance, sublimetext with unsaved documents has a title such as:

Untitled • - Sublime Text (UNREGISTERED)

That dot 'breaks' the name string. It would be nice to find all these corner-cases :D

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?

Report

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.

Well, can they be blurred too?

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.
