Description:

The drop shadows in 3.1 are great, but at 1600x1200 resolution, they were a little 'thin'. So I patched kdelibs/kdefx/kstyle.cpp to increase the depth of the shadow from 4 pixels to 8 pixels.

To apply the patch:

cd kdelibs/kdefx
patch kstyle.cpp < kdelibs.kdefx.kstyle.cpp.patch
recompile
stop/start KDE

Voila!

This was done on FreeBSD. I hope it works for your platform. I can't see any reason why it shouldn't.

Ehm, how do I enable "standard" drop shadow in my kde3.1? I thought it was into 3.2... I must have missed something... but I can't find anything related to drop shadows in my kcontrol... Please help this tormented soul =)

Go to style in KControl. Then click on the other tabs at the top. It's in there, same as translucency for menus. Do you know where that is?

Ignore the previous hint, I missed the semicolons:
- "<" ==> "&lt;"
- ">" ==> &gt;"

couldn't you patch it so that the shadow is proportional to screen-size, rather than using fixed values?
Moreover, you could address this issue to the guys at kde, so that the might include your patch into kde cvs.

Hint: you should be able to write "less than" writing "&lt", and "more than" writing "&gt" (this are html entities)
