linux default iconBeDistorted Publisher's description

Blurring effect for KDE4

Proof of concept.

KDE 4.5 will bring back blurring, but for OpenGL only.

You do not require 4.5, but plasma doesn't use it before and i do actually not relly recommand to use it for "normal" windows (in combination with Bespin or ?QtCurve?)

Since XRender doesn't know accelerated pixel manipulation (like stencil shaders in glsl) this solution "fakes" blurring by painting the area several times with a reduced alpha value.

This is slow, therefore the result is cached. Also blurring is skipped for moving/resizing windows and during fullscreen effects (like "present windows")
It should be sufficient for your panel or the info popus, though.

currently the cache has the size of the window, what's pretty much a waste if the actually translucent/blurred area is significantly smaller
